Signs of percocet being expired. No label
Have a bottle of Percs for emergency. Tweaked my back and was going to take 2. Cannot read the expiration label (worn out) just wanted to know what signs of expired meds are. They are extremely powdery and look battered down. Is super chalky and powdery a good sign its too old to do anything or is that irrelevant? ## Dear Rick, usually a prescription is good 4 one year from the date u got it. But u said u couldn't read it. And, by the way u described the condition of them, I wouldn't take the chance. Medications can still be ok after 1 year, but, they lose their potency . Maybe call your Dr and get a new script? I hope this info. Helps u.

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...

percocet m523
are watson perks stronger than endo perks ## If the dosage is the same, then the strength would be the same. The pill you mentioned, with the M 523 marking isn't manufactured by either one of those companies, it is manufactured by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. It contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Percocet, a narcotic pain reliever. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

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 ...

Adverse reation to Percocet
My husband had shoulder surgery. he is on Percocet, his complete attitude has changed. he is very aggressive, paranoid, full of anxiety down right nasty. Withdrawn complete attitude change. Before the he took Hydrocodone for his injury. He was in severe pain, yet had the same great personality. I feel that he is having a adverse reaction to the Percocet. Would like to have answer or comment if that's possible. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? Yes, opiates can cause that in some people that take them, it could be that the Oxycodone in the Percocet just doesn't agree with him. This could also happen if he's abusing them, but if you've no reason to think that, then it is most likely just a bad reaction to it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit for...

Mylan brand Percocet 10/325
I am looking for Watson 10/325 Percocet and they no longer make them. What about Mylan brand? Has anyone had those- also Amneal is another generic. Help!!! ## My wife takes the 10/325 and has preferred the Watson also. Mylan worked well for her but we can't find anyone near us that carries Mylan. Who are you getting them from? ## I haven't had any personal experience with this med, but after seeing all the complaints against Actavis I think any other brand would be worth looking into. Endo Pharmaceuticals also makes Percocet. I'd just be mindful of the inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) that they put into those tablets, because you never know if something in there could be effecting its potency/bioavailability from the point of absorption. From what I've read, Endo u...
