fake percocet 10
October 2014... There are fake Percocet 10's going around with the marking 10/325 on one side and m523 on the other. I don't know what they are, but they are NOT percocets. I have been taking them for 12yrs and I know just by tasting one that it is not Percocet. Be carefully... U may think it's not possible but it is. ## Where did you get them?

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...

Question?
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. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Actavis (Watson) and yes, there have been quite a few complaints about it recently. Prior to them popping up on here, I was actually not aware of this tablet and just managed to find the information on it. It appears that it must be cheaper than other generics, because more pharmacies are providing it and many people are dissatisfied. Have you consulted your doctor? They may have some idea t...

percocet withdrawal- weird ones
I have taken hydrocodone for years and then changed to Percocet. Ive been taking it for a year and a half. From 20-40 mg a day. This is the end of day 2 withdrawing from it. Ive had weird symptoms such as watery mouth, chapped lips, burning feeling in stomach, nausea, more hungrier than usual, anxiety, crying, leg pain, decrease in sleeping. I will fall asleep and wake up and stay up after a couple hours. Has anyone had similiar symptoms? ## I forgot to add that im having these electric shock sensations thats worse when walking. They are like zaps. ## Hello, Trish! How are you? First of all, what were you taking? Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, it is only available in a maximum dosage of 10mgs of the Oxycodone and 325mgs of the Acetaminophen. There is no 20 or 40mg dosage...

Watson changing to Actavis the new generic percocet 10/325 Wrong! Doesn't work!
I have been taking Oxycontin and for BTP Watson 10/325 generic Percocet for a number of years; they have always given me some pain relief. The Actavis Percocet 10/325 do not give me any pain relief. Life is hard enough with the stigma I get from pharmacists’, some friends, people in the pharmacies. All the time I wish my pain would go away because it’s very hard to take these pain pills, adding the stigma wow!! I have no other option. Surgeons will not operate they say the odds of making my whole back worse is to high, therapy done it many times doesn’t work. It’s been over 10 years I’ve suffered with what feels like half of a back and life. I can’t do much at all. A number of years ago I tried racing my little daughter my left leg is so weak on my th...

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 ...

RN ADDICTED
I'm here to try and help someone because I'm in the same boat as everyone here. I started using percs 10 years ago and got off them about 6 years. Well, I started back up 3 years ago. I am taking up to 15/day for 3 years consecutively without missing one day. I'm not going to go into the drawn out story about why I started, like everyone else here, the point is "we're all addicted". So I'm writing now because I'm in day 2 of slow detoxing. 15 a day for 3 years solid is not easy, however, I can say to those of you who are looking to lessen with the withdrawal symptoms should try this. It's not for everyone because a lot of people will stop cold turkey, which can be dangerous, depending on the individual. I'm a nurse who has a career teaching at a u...

prednisone20 mg i must ve read wrong and took 3tabs at the same time a few hours ago should worry can still
I took 3 pills accidental because I read the label wrong. I'm so worried to even go to sleep ugh. Can anything happen to me? Can I still take my sleeping pills, muscle relaxers and my pain pill wish is percocet 20mg... please help! I've never been so worried.:-( ## You'll be fine. 60 MG is still a starting dose. Perhaps be more careful next time? ;/ If it happened to me, I would still take my Percocet, sleeping pills, and muscle relaxers. ## No do NOT mix perocet with muscle relaxers and sleeping pills. It will interfere with your respiratory system. Remember what happened to Heath Ledger? First of all, 20mg of percocet is awfully high on its own. Don't compound the risk. ## And as to the other reply, 60mg IS NOT a starting dose for percocet. That is insane. They only ma...

2 months on percocet
I have been takin percocet 5-325 for 2 months as directed. Have not abused at all. I originally was taking for pain following a breast reduction. After that pain seemed to cease, I continued taking as I noticed the percocets helped with my chronic tendonitis in my thumbs. Anyway, I am down to 2 pills, will I go through withdrawal ? Again, only took as directed for 2 months, and sometimes not more that 4 pills a day. I'm leaving town tomorrow to take care of my Mom after she has major surgery. I'm worried now that I will have withdrawal symptoms and not be of any help to her!! ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? You may experience some minor withdrawal effects, such as nausea, dizziness, chills and diarrhea, but they shouldn't be severe and debilitating. Since you were also on them ...
