MY PHARMACY GAVE ME THSES PILLS THATS SUPPOSE TO BE 7.5/325 PERCOCET IS IT ## The percocet with "U15" imprint is 5/325 strength manufactured by Aurolife Pharma LLC (which is owned by Aurobindo Pharma). ## I live in NC and am currently in SC with my stepfather who has Parkinson's. He had 3 episodes in an 8 hour span and I had to rush down here, 5 hours away. I had to fill my pain meds while down here, Percocet 7.5/325, which needless to say was like pulling teeth, went to BiLo pharmacy, and heard crap about it. Since filling my RX I have noticed pain is worse, tingling in both my legs. Got to researching last night and could not find NDC number online. Noticed the manufacturer is Aurobindo. All I'm seeing online is negative comments. I'm not sure how to handle this. I...

percocet brand vs generic
2 Replies RSS
Generic Percocet is weak, and having trouble finding brand, I'm a BK amputee. Over 20 yrs with severe nerve bundles on and off meds depending on my situation. Only prescribed 60 10mg/ 325 a month and not a day sooner. I understand the need to not to be over medicated very well. I am now left in pain often since there are days where only taking two pills daily is ridiculous. In my line of work I stand for 3+ hrs. at a time. I have had Percocet 30 mg w/ no APAP . Which I harder find and tougher to get prescribed, we are talking about quality of life and staying in the work force so I can pay my healthcare in the first place. Generics leave me taking more pills a day with worse results which damages liver no matter the amount. And Brand Percocet is not covered by co-pay. Do I find a Dr...

can percocet AND Flexeril be taken together
27 Replies RSS
I take Percocet and Flexeril and was told by the doctor to wait a couple of hours before I take one or the other. What are the possible side effects, positive and negative. ## More than likely he advise to space them apart because they can both cause central nervous system depression. This can cause your breathing to slow and be shallower, a slower heart rate and etc. Using them both together can also worsen some other side effects, that they both can cause, such as drowsiness, dizziness and nausea. He is probably trying to minimize this for you. If you use them as he instructed you to, you may be able to get better pain control. Many doctors prescribe a muscle relaxant, like Flexeril, along with other pain management medications. Reducing the tenseness in the muscles can help lessen th...

How long before I can take percocet
1 Reply RSS
OK, I've taken 1/4 of a 2/8mg suboxone for about 7 days, but I only would take that dose once a day. Now today is my first day not taking suboxone. It's been a full 24 hours. Can I take my pain meds (percocet 10mg) and feel it and not get sick? ## @lady luv, Based on the vast majority of feedback I've seen in other related threads here, the usual wait time is 2-5 days in-between taking Suboxone then opiates (like the Oxycodone; in Percocet). However, because everyone's case is different, these figures are only intended to be a rough estimate. And if I were in your shoes, I'd probably only feel the need to wait another day or two just to be sure that your receptors are clear. Others may suggest less time from their experience, since you've only been taking a small...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
772 Replies RSS
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 ...

percocet 20 mg
29 Replies RSS
does percocet come in 20mg? ## I'm assuming you're referring to the amount of the narcotic in it, the Oxycodone? If so, then NO, it does not. Percocet, which contains the Oxycodone, coupled with Acetaminophen, is only available in a maximum dosage of 10mgs Oxycodone and 750mgs of Acetaminophen. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and dizziness. You can read more here: Are there any other questions? (It should be noted that as a separate medication, by itself, Oxycodone IS available in much higher dosages!) ## Percocet comes in 15 and 30 mg tablet too so apparently you don't know what your talking about ## You are stupid percocets come in 5mg. 7.5mg and 10 mg. That's it. ## I'm doing a 20 right now in ny hunnie so yes they come in 20s ## noo...

how long after taking percocets can i take suboxone
10 Replies RSS
i was on methadone havent had any since monday. been taking percocet to help with withdrawal. took 10 mg of percocet about 4:00 this morning. how long til 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 others. What has your doctor a...

Percocet Vs Opana
9 Replies RSS
I have Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes #2, Sciatica down both legs, Piriformis Syndrome, L4 L5 S1 Vertabre Fracture x2, Osteoarthritis in my spine, knees, thumbs, feet! Chronic numbness down my right leg, groin area that hurts like hell. I started out taking Darvocet and have worked my way up to Percocet 325/10 for the last 3 years. I was wondering IF Opana would work better? My doctor wanted to put me on Oxycotin, but of course my insurance won't pay for it, not even with a required PA! So according to Medicare Part D (which I have) they need a PA for Oxycotin, but not one for Opana! Oxycotin is considered a class 3 and Opana a class 2 drug! So is Opana as strong as Oxycotin? Are they both stronger than Percocet? I tried Morphine Sulfate 10 mgs about 3 years ago, and it did NO...
