I need you to confirm the Link Dr David sent me. I need to give this information to my doctor in the US so he can write a subscription for my new doctor in Spain

I can say that Oxycodone and Hydrocodone while both pain medications they are not the same medication. I will do some research and will get back to you shortly. Thanks for the information.

I sent out several emails to drug manufacturers to see what products they have available in Spain I'm waiting on a reply from a few more. I do believe Teva will have a product but I want to make sure. I will let you know when I get their reply. Sorry for your wait.

Dr Rollins, have you found an answer yet????? this is a day later and need an answer in the next 15 mins, before my doctor appointment thank you
Expert:  Dr. C. Rollins replied 1 month ago.

I am sorry for the delay. I worked on this question for over 2 hours yesterday. I sent emails to several pharmaceutical manufacturers that distribute to Spain. Some have returned my email letting me know they do not have products containing hydrocodone distributed in Spain. I am hopeful that Teva will get back to me as I do believe they will have a medication to help you.
