What's the difference between Percocet and oxycodone
1 Reply RSS
The doctor prescribed me Percocet and the pharmacy gave me the generic which is oxycodone/acetaminophen 5-325. What's the difference in the 2? Also idk why the pharmacy gave me the generic, can they change it? ## Under current U.S. laws, your pharmacy has to give you the generic, if one is available, unless you are paying cash for a medication and ask them to give the name brand. Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, so you have received the correct medication. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

percocet/oxycodone m523 10/325 fake?
47 Replies RSS
Hello all, First off I'm new to posting here and I must admit this is probably a topic that is quite frequent and I have done days searching but can't seem to really find any info on my specific situation. I apologize in advance for the long post but I will introduce myself and situation. I've been on oxycodone 10/325 for a little over a year now from a botched foot surgery and diabetic neuropathy in this same foot. It helps tremendously and seems to be the only relief I can get is from taking these. Whether its first thing in the morning to be able to stand up and get moving or whether it's to let me settle down and drift off to sleep which is something fairly hard to do. I also was recently diagnosed with PTSD from my job and I am currently out of work for this. It is ...

What Is Stronger/Longer lasting Than 10mg Percocet
31 Replies RSS
My primary dr has me on 10 mg percocet, 2 every 4 hrs for chronic/severe leg pain but it has lost it's effectiveness. I have appt w/pain mgt clinic on the 18th for the 1st time and am hoping they rx something stronger & definitely something that lasts longer. I haven't slept a full night in almost 2 years due to waking up in pain, taking meds, waiting for them to kick in and waiting to fall asleep again. Does anyone have an educated guess on what they may rx or what works well for this problem? Just curious and very excited at the prospect of having this pain under control. ## There are actually several time released medications that they may choose from. The most commonly used contains Oxycodone, it's called Oxycontin. There's also a time released Morphine available...

Percocet 7.5-325 verses Norco 7.5-325
2 Replies RSS
My doctor gave me Percocet 7.5-325..Half a tablet twice a day, doesn't seem to be working well with my breakthrough pain. I'm also on 30mg of morphine 2x daily. Will switching over to Norco 7.5-325 2x daily help better? ## According to NIH reports, the Oxycodone in Percocet is stronger than the Hydrocodone in Norco. They also warn that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. However, I am curious as to why they only have you taking half a tablet, twice a day? That is a very, very low dosage. Are you on any other medications? What condition is being treated? ## Thank you for your response..My doc had me on one Percocet 5/325 once a day but he said raising the quantity to ...

Severe shoulder/back pain, getting worse
Post a Reply
Over the past several months (up to 12), I've had an increasingly severe pain build in my left shoulder and back. It started in the shoulder, high up almost into my neck (opposite my collar bone). Since then, it has spread to nearby areas all around my shoulder blade, including just behind my armpit. The pain also radiates down my entire left arm. The areas are painful when I move, and also painful to the touch; the skin is sensitive, almost like a post-surgical site (I've had multiple surgeries- more on that later). Over the past few week, these areas have also started to swell, with solid knots or masses developing where the pain seems to come from. The consensus is these spots "feel like bone" when pressed on. They're also visible to the naked eye. I've seen my f

fake percocet 10 325 m523
96 Replies RSS
I just had my script filled and it looks waxy. Is it the right medication? ## ARE U ASKING IF THEY ARE FAKE? OR R U WARNING PEOPLE THAT THERE ARE FAKE ONES THAT LOOKS LIKE THEM? ## Just tryn to warn. It's getting bad, feel like I can't trust anyone and who knows if it is the right med. Tasted like baking soda and soap. But they look identical but kinda had waxiness to outside like maybe hairspray. ## @ruby, I've never seen Percocet tablets with a waxy look to them, but it sounds to me like these counterfeiters are doing anything they can to get one up on their potential victims. The best thing you can do as a preventative measure in my opinion is to continue searching for a doctor who will write you a legitimate prescription (provided that you aren't taking them recreati...

Getting Prescriptions From 2 Different Doctors For Pain Meds But There Are Conditions
497 Replies RSS
Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is considered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injured my knee. Now I have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me to. He prescribes pain meds for me but the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and told the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doc...

Does Percocet And Oxycontin Show Up The Same On A Ua
10 Replies RSS
I Am RX'ed Ms-Contin 30Mg., & Percocet 10Mg., By My Pain Dr. My Question Is Since Percocet And OxyContin Have The Same Main Ingredient In Them Except The APAP That Is In The Percocet Will It Show Up The Same On A UA For The Pain Clinic? ## Yes, since they both contain Oxycodone, a test that checks for the specific opiate and its metabolites will show them both as being the same thing. What you could run into, however, is a problem if you have been taking more than the amount prescribed. Most pain management clinics use tests that also show the level of the opiate(s) in your body, to make sure you are using them as prescribed. They will expect the levels to be in a certain range, so if they are higher than the expected amounts, it could cause you a problem. Are there any other qu...

How can you tell if you have a bad percocet 10mg/325 pill? Anyway to test to make sure they are good? ## Hey Bob; thats a real good question. and the sad part is they come in all shapes and sizes based on the manufacturer and brand...overall the will be a long a oblong shape pill with the numbers clearly written on it. except in the case of watson where it says watson right on it... another way to determine a real one from the fake one is by the price. if you see a ridiculous price like $2 ($60 for 30) a pill chances are you getting a placebo...the average cost of 30 pills is anywhere from $500 to $700. anywhere in that price range you know that you are good. ## 500 to 700 bucks for 10/325 percocet? ## People are making fake a333 and others... watch out ## Yep, I know for a fact because...

how long after taking percocets can i take suboxone
26 Replies RSS
I was on methadone and haven't had any since monday. I've been taking percocet to help with withdrawal. I took 10 mg of percocet at about 4:00 this morning. How long till i can take a suboxone? ## how long after taking percocet can i take suboxone ## 4 days ## You should follow your doctor's prescribing instructions. In order to take Suboxone, you have to be in full withdrawals from other opiates, because otherwise the Naloxone in it could throw you into very dangerous withdrawals. Learn more Suboxone details here.* Thus, there is no set time frame for when to start treatment, because the onset of full withdrawals can vary from person to person, depending on how their body handles it. Some people may end up in full withdrawals within 12 hours, or it could be 4 days for other...

percocet dosage limits 5/325
162 Replies RSS
I am taking the percocet 512 white tablets 5mg/325 for severe back pain due to degenerating disc(s). I have been told 1 pill every 8 hours, but find the pain so excruciating after about 5 hours that I cannot even stand... even to use the bathroom or shower. My MD cannot get me into a specialist until August, but I am having real stress here. Will it be harmful for me to take more than the one tablet per 8 hours?? ## your comment seems strange to me brcause my MD prescribed me some of same percocet and on the bottle it says take 1 or 2 tablets every 4 or 6 hours according to pain or even as needed for pain. I have been taking 2 every 9 or 10 hours Lately, though, I realize that if I do not take a pill I start to feel pain in my shoulders, and my chest is agitated. So I just stopped takin...

What Does Percocet Show Up As On A 12 Panel Drug Test
9 Replies RSS
does percocet and codeine show up as the same thing on a probation ua ## On the basic test, they should both just show up as opiates, however, a 12 panel can be more in depth and may show the individual metabolites of each, so they will know which ones you have taken. However, if you have a prescription, you just have to let them know that, when you go in for the test. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Will hydrocodone show up in a urine drug test?

fake v 4829 Percocet by Qualitest
1 Reply RSS
I have taken many generic Percocet 10-325 made by different companies. Different size/shape/color. But these 4829 v seem to be stronger for some reason. Been taking pain meds for 30 years. So I know side effects are different sometimes. I have been light headed/anxious/hot/cold when I take 2. Don't have to often. But I usually stick with the every 4 hours regimen. This is the first time I have used this brand for my pain. Any suggestions? ## Has your doctor instructed you to take 2 of them? It is entirely normal to experience more side effects, if you raise your dosage. The FDA does list those as being normal side effects, you may also experience nausea, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Are you on any other medications? How often are you supposed to take them?

Prescribed 1 percocet pill every 6-8 hours. How long will that last?

My orthopedic doc put me on 5/325mg percocets #40. How many days of supply is that? I had carpal tunnel surgery and am now having complications. ## What are the specifics of the prescription? Has it been prescribed to be taken ever 6 to 8 hours regularly? Or has it been directed that you only take it as needed? I'm sorry, but the answer depends on this additional information. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Are you on any other medications? What complications are you experiencing?

White round pill 230 C - Percocet?
1 Reply RSS
What color are Percocet 10/325mg? Is there a 10/325mg Percocet that's white, round & has 230 on one side & a C on the other? ## A "yellow" round pill with a large C on one side and 230 on the other reportedly contains Acetaminophen (325mg) + Oxycodone hydrochloride (10mg); the generic for Percocet. For verification, the manufacturer is Alvogen Inc. and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 47781-0230. I have yet to see a legitimate white version of this pill, however I do know that colors and shapes are subject to change at the whit and whim of the manufacturer. So perhaps it would be best to contact Alvogen directly to verify its identity at the following email or phone number for drug related inquiries: PV_ALVOGEN@norwichclinical.com / 866-770-3024 I hope...

Taking hydrocodone 10/325 after Percocet 7.5/325
1 Reply RSS
Hi. My doctor just changed me from oxycodone 7.5/325 to hydrocodone 10/325. Is it safe to start taking the hydrocodone 6 hours after taking Percocet 7.5/325? ## Usually, you can switch cleanly from one to the other, unless your doctor has instructed otherwise. For example, if they directed you to take them every 8 hours, then that is what you should do. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. What instructions did they provide? Are you on any other medications?

percocet 30 mg how to get prescribed
15 Replies RSS
My back pain is through the roof, I fell off a ladder and cannot get a script. I can barely walk let alone work.I have no insure so I'm kinda up a creak and thw doc wouldn't even think of giving me a script ## The highest mg for Percocet is Oxycodone 10 mg/Acetaminphen 325 mg. If a dr has proof that you are in enough pain, they should prescribe you something for it. But that doesn't mean it will be what you want. You can go to a free or sliding scale clinic or a teaching hospital or public hospital if yuo don't have insurance. You will be charged according to your income. They will probably order diagnostics to see exactly what is causing the pain and making it difficult for you to walk. ## Thats not the highest. There is Percocet 30s. People give out awful advice.

Rhodes Pharm Manufacturer for RP 10/325 Generic for Percocet
7 Replies RSS
Horrible experience with RP 10/325 generic for Percocet 10/325 prescribed by my Pain Mgt Dr. I got the prescription filled at Walmart a month ago. Since that time, I have been in withdrawals, with aching muscles, mostly in my shoulders and wrists, the pain I felt before going on any pain pills over 25 years ago, also the chills and sweating, just as if I were in complete withdrawal. I took the bottle to the pharmacy and told the pharmacist what was happening and he told me he has had no other complaints and couldn't do anything for me...okay, so my husband is now picking up my new monthly prescription at Walgreens, and the manufacturer is Actavis, which I believe is the old Watson and I am praying they will take away the withdrawal feelings. Has anyone else had this issue with the R...
