generic percocet 10/325 A333 are making me extremely sick to my stomach
absolutely not one shred of pain relief. This medication against all the scary stories about narcotics, I was desperate for pain relief, so I needed something, have been getting my scripts now for almost two years, with my periodic UA, which is all good. Because of the help of this medication, I have been able to return to school and not too farm from earning my Bachelors in clinical psychology with a focus mental healthcare, especially PTSD from childhood trauma and PTSD from our veterans from combat. I desire to really help others with ADHD/ADD, childhood abuse, addiction and recovery, there is a huge difference in taking medication which is regulated and not mis-used or abused, than taking for non-pain related reasons. I have even been able to enjoy my grandson that just turned three...

is there a percocet without pork in it
I am trying to find a Percocet or generic percocet without pork products in it. So far I have had no success or they say "right now" we are using beef but that may change according to availablitlity. ## Hi Deb, Because the binders and fillers are going to vary for each and every manufacturer/brand/and generic, it sounds like your best bet would be to do a cross reference check before fully committing to any particular tablet they suggest you try. From my own research I'm finding that Endo's Percocet tablets contain the following list of inactive ingredients: silicon dioxide + croscarmellose sodium + crospovidone + microcrystalline cellulose + povidone + corn starch + stearic acid + D&C Yellow Certain forms of stearic acid could also be derived from animal sources (no...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

What's proper "cocktail" for kicking opioids?
I have allways been told that when getting clean you are best to "treat the systems " rather than the disease.... I am sure there is some truth to this but here is my real question.... If a person has 4 steady years of pain meds (oxys, tabs, percocets,ect) what "formula" is the best one you know of to prepare for detoxification if thats what your planning on doing? I have heard of vitamin packs, and cold meds, and just getting zonked out...I mean what are the best remedys for detoxifying or to get you through that 4-6 days ahead? I am really thinking about trying to clean out and just battle my pain on my own.... Anyone care to share? ## Hello, Gary! How are you? Actually, the best method is a slow tapering of the relevant medications. That can prevent the severe withdra...

fake percocet 10 325
i have a couple of worthless pos's that my ol' lady hangs around with who are constantly stealing my percocet 10/325. i am looking for a look alike that will make the next time they steal them the last time. i can find nothing from a u.s. pharmacy that will do the trick. is there any foreign pharmacies who make what i need? ## @Jim, It sounds like your best bet would probably be to get a hidden video camera/recorder set up so you can see and hear exactly who's taking your medicine. Stealing a prescription is a federal offense, so showing evidence to the police should enable them to put a warrant out for this person's arrest. Unfortunately there's no other legitimate pharmaceutical pills that look alike since the markings are so unique here in the US. I don't know...

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

PILLS : PERCOCETS ? a333 , white oval 512
Wanting to know if these are these percocets ? ## Hello, Sboom! How are you? Yes, the tablet with the A 333 marking contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, while the one with the 512 marking contains 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

percocet vs norco
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ...
