Codeine oral doseage equivalent to hydrocodone oral dose?

My parrot usually takes 20mg of hydrocodone for a good buzz. He was recently perscibed tylenol 3's (30mg codiene / 300mg APAP).

My parrot was wondering what is the equivalent dosage of oral codeine compared to hydroconde. He looked on google and has a general idea (30mg codiene = 5mg hydro?) but he has been getting mixed comparisons.

Is there swiy out there that has experience with both hydrocodone and codeine? and could tell me what the actual equivalent is of say 30mg codeine = ? mg hydro

thanks alot.

Re: Codeine oral doseage equivalent to hydrocodone oral dose?

Codeine is a pro-drug, which means it needs to be metabolized into an active compound in the liver before having an effect.Beecause of genetic variations in liver enzyme systems between individuals, the amount converted varies and so itīs reallly hard to compare it to an actual opiate like hydrocodone.

However, based on Roboīs experience, he recommends that you start with 200mg and work your way up if needed.

Re: Codeine oral doseage equivalent to hydrocodone oral dose?

Hydrocodone is 10x as potent as codeine, so try 200mg codeine. Varies by individual, but seeing as hydrocodone is metabolized by the same enzyme as codeine, 10x should be pretty accurate.

Re: Codeine oral doseage equivalent to hydrocodone oral dose?

My parrot took 3 of them (90mg codiene 900mg apap) and says he feels pretty good. Not as euphoric as hydrocodone but probably as relaxing.

Parrot thinks this was a good experience for first time codiene use.

Euphoria usually comes at doses above 120mg.

Really should get rid of the APAP, too. It's terrible for your liver. See the CWE section here on DF for methods.

Re: Codeine oral doseage equivalent to hydrocodone oral dose?

Hydrocodone is an opiod, not true opiate i.e morphine, codeine. Be careful with codeine-- it causes large histamine release, start low first.
