How Strong Is Talacen?

Some people may wonder how Talacen® (acetaminophen and pentazocine) compares to other opioids. For example, how strong is Talacen? According to the manufacturer, when this drug is taken by mouth, 25 mg of pentazocine (one of the drug's active ingredients) is as strong as 25 mg of codeine for relieving pain.
 
Talacen combines pentazocine, an opioid narcotic, with acetaminophen (Tylenol®), a non-narcotic pain reliever. One tablet of Talacen contains 25 mg of pentazocine and 650 mg of acetaminophen.
