Hi I just started taking this A333 white oblong pill. (Generic Percocet. 10/325). I never had this type before and got it due to pharmacy supply. My question is has anyone noticed a difference in pain relief from other brands. Maybe it's me but it doesn't seem to work as well. Can't wait to hear some other input on this. Thanks.

Actavis 7.5/325 is horrible and not what I am used to at all. Having heart disease, it worked for 24 hours and I've been a terrible mess since! Extreme nausea and dizziness...not good when I cannot physically regurgitate due to esophageal surgery in the '90's and this has been a week from hell. Indiana - any news on what to do? Disabled heart patient suffering and sick!!!

Violet - I wanted to let you know someone started a petition on another thread regarding watson percocet I think it is change.org or chang.org. Please notify actavis and the FDA too. We have to keep complaining and notify anyone who will listen otherwise I don't think anything will get changed and it needs to as soon as possible. I have already called the FDA and Actavis if it will do any good only time will tell but it sure CAN"T hurt right. I am glad you found a stray watson pill - but if it were me after it wore off and I didnt' have anymore I would be even more depressed and disappointed and especially when my pain returned - what a mess we are all in now. Hope everyone has a happy mothers day.

Hello & Happy Mothers Day to you Mom's!
I really wish the people that say it is phycological - to STOP!!
It is not and there is a huge difference- I found a Watson oxycodone in my purse pill box this morning and was thrilled - I took it and I feel so much better and on Mothers Day! can't beat that! I have had terrible side effects taking the A333 pills.
I wish someone could find a way to start a Petition....Take Care All:)

Sunni, what are you taking now for your pain? Are you taking name brand percocet or what generic are you taking.

Just an FYI.....ive been taking endocet and its working pretty good...im functional and thats what counts! Nothing is as good as the Watson's but endocet by endo pharmaceuticals has been the best of all the generics ive tried, this gas been the only one that has helped.

You can submit a complaint to Actavis along with the FDA, your Pharmacy & most importantly tell your PM Dr about the side effects you are having. Actavis brand is a horrid med & my PM Dr has it written on all my scripts that patient is Not to Receive Actavis/Watson Brand A333 imprint pill! I have submitted complaints to all & really don't get anywhere but at least my voice was heard & my pharmacy will order a different brand for me. I have also changed to a Real Pharmacy not drugstores or Walmarts anymore, but a real Pharmacy that actually cares for patients health & only carry medical supplies & medicines, not food. Beauty items Etc: Walmarts, CVS & Walgreens are drugstores or super centers who have pharmacies in there store, CVS & Walgreens now carry & distribute only Actavis Brand & will not order anything for the patient, Walmarts have become a joke of a pharmacy in my opinion esp in SW FL. I had to call my insurance company explain & send written documentation as to why I needed to chg pharmacies & they did agree & will now pay for my medicine using a Real Pharmacy not on preferred list. I may have to pay $10.00 instead of $1.20 for my rx now but at least I'm not getting medication poisoning taking the Actavis Brand. It's been a struggle but i am feeling 150% better now. I wish you the Best of Luck Violet, but please let your PM Dr know first & foremost.

HI, These A333 suppose to be oxycodone 10/325 {percocet} but they do not work near as well as the Watsons. I have severe pains and when I take them they make my stomach sick and it does not relieve my pains, also keeps me sleepy. I am very dissapointed because with the Watsons - I could take 1/2 at a time.
How can we complain about this? I really need my pains to be relieved. I am 54 yr.old and don't heal like the 20 yr.old's anymore.and have had many surgeries on my back. I also have chronic legg pains. Can someone help? please

I think "Vernon" and others are like side moderators. I believe, from looking through MANY posts, that MedsChat has people to answer basic questions. I don't think any of them are doctors - just giving basic answers.

Jennifer, I too have noticed this person as well on other threads so I don't know if he is a doctor or what. I posted on medchats about the problem with Actavis percocet and he replied there too. I don't get it either. I, like you am not sure if he is a pain patient or not.

Vernon.....curious about whether ur an actual pain sufferer or just someone who scrolls thru all the threads on this site? I've come across many different topics where ur name shows up n u post comments where it seems like ur trying to sound like a dr even though some of the posts I've seen u make are inaccurate so that gives me the notion that ur not a dr.....so do u just skim through all categories on the site n comment on certain ones? M

Oxycontin recently lost its patent. The FDA has to approve the generic oxycontin to make sure its abuse deterrent. The FDA banned the original formula oxy. Two other companies have already been approved one is supposed to start selling generic oxy in Oct. The article is about Actavis trying to get approved to sell it too by making an abuse deterrent version. Generic companies have to wing it trying to match the formulation of the original. The drug makers don't give out their recipe.

On question 75, Ann you say, "Once again, that article only refers to OxyContin which is time release." If it 'only' refers to OxyContin...then why is it (& the link--question # 56), titled..."Actavis makes agreement for generic abuse-deterrent oxycodone"?? (and the article is not on a forum, it is on 'Generic News')..... Not OxyContin but ...Oxycodone... Reckon you're going to say it is not FDA approved either? Read the link/article....look for 2nd paragraph, that's where it says the FDA did Not approve Oxycodone. It says a little about OxyContin, I believe how they started with OxyContin, then moved on to Oxycodone....why would it be titled with Oxycodone if the article.. "only refers to OxyContin"?? Makes no sense to me and even less sense when I read the article from start to end...whatever, people can read it, or not and draw their own thoughts on it, that's all I have to say. Hope all have a good and pain free (as possible for some), week end~

I break my Activas in half as well and they work fine. Once again, that article only refers to OxyContin which is time release. I have taken these before and yes, it's almost impossible to break them.

Hi Linda & Sunni....well I went to get my pain med. this morning and it was suppose to be, Mallinckrodt...it wasn't, it was the Alvogen Brand!! They said they were out of Mallinckrodt, so I got the other. BUT...I have to say, so far, it's working great for me! (Yay) hopefully it'll continue to do so and I don't get sick from it in the next few days....I had to drive a tad over 5 miles to get it when there is a pharmacy less then a mile from me that has Alvogen, so if I don't get sick/side effects, I'll for sure use the pharmacy that is closer to me....going a total of over 10 miles for my meds would of been a hassle for me since I'd have to go more then once a month (get my other meds). I'll be praying hard Alvogen keeps working like it is today. Thanks for the input though. :)
Wagoneer....I broke my Actavist in half as well, as I have problems with certain size pills. What you say makes sense....now to see if anyone else will reply to your (or mine) comment as to how they took them. Think your question is #67. I'm sorry to hear that you lost your mom....both my parents are gone too....off to a much better place <3 Hope all has a good and pain free as possible, week end.

Sean: So Sorry you had to go thru pain because of the Cheap Generic Actavis. I went thru so much pain and was so sick, actually got Medication poisoning from that Nasty Horrid med, had upper GI problems for almost 2 months. I complained to Actavis, FDA, the Pharmacy and of course my PM dr. I agree this med needs to be removed from the market and also we all need to write to ACTAVIS and get compensated for all the misery they have put us thru. I hope you find relief soon

Linda, Thanks for the info on Alvogen Brand, Sounds just as bad as Actavis Brand. Another Cheap Horrible Generic. Seems it all comes down to the Big Mighty $ for these companies supplying and distributing Horrible below sub par generics & get away with it.. Either the FDA doesn't care about the consumers getting terribly ill from all this Junk being made now, or simply isn't doing their jobs of really putting these New Cheap Generics thru the testing phases long enough. I do agree with So Confused who States: A Petition needs to be started to STOP all These Companies from supplying JUNK! Actavis being #1: If I can find any info on how to get a Petition started, I will let everyone know.
