I'm trying to get off percocet can do it want soboxne but no insurance live in seattle help
I live in Seattle area I need help I don't have much money I want to get on a Soboxne program. I've tried quoting Percocet but I only make it a few days if anybody knows a cheap programs out here please help you can email me {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Ron! How are you? Unfortunately, since Suboxone is administered by private physicians, there are no cheap programs. Have you considered a Methadone clinic? It's usually a much cheaper route. 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. ## You can contact Beckitt Renkiser, the maker of Suboxone. They will give it to you for 1 year free of charge. It's a one time offer. Or go to Patients assistance o...

percocet 10 325
I accidently took five Percocet in a 3 hour period today from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. I took two around 12:00 pm and two around 7:00 am. Possibly a total of nine today. I have been on this medicine for 1 year. I usually take two, 3 times a day for a total of 6 per day. Will I be okay? ## I do not want to overdose. This was sincerely an accident. It's been an hour. What would overdose symptoms be. Could 50 mg over 2 1/2 to 3 hours possibly be fatal? Should I go to the hospital? I have tried (with no success) self induced vomiting to no avail. Now I am drinking quarts of water. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Generic Percocet. It is a round white pill. Scored on one side and on same side has what looks like a V and on the other scored side the numbers 483
I have a prescription for Percocet/5-325mg tab EN....I got a generic from the pharmacy that reads oxycodone/apap 5-325 M Tab. Is there any difference in these ??? Are they the same compound ( identical )? ## Did you mean a pill with the marking V 4839? If so, then yes, it contains the same ingredients and dosage as the Percocet that you were prescribed, 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Learn more: Are there any other questions or comments? ## Does the ROUND WHITE TABLETS side 1 WATSON 932 have the same ingredients as STANDARD WHIT/YELLOW CAPSULE side 1 : LV 901 ? Thanks ! ## Shirley, no, they are not exactly the same. The one with the marking WATSON 932 contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of A...

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...

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. ## Hi Rick, This might be a bit surprising, but Harvard Medical School did a study showing that many types of medications can actually retain ...

generic percocet 10 a333 not so bad.
I have seen a lot of negative post about this medicine but it has worked woonders for me with no side effects except for the normal bit of euphoria about 10 minutes after I take them. I have been pain free since I started. Sorry for the people who've had trouble with them. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

do i get withdrawals same day quit percocet
If i took one 10mg percocet in the morning when would i start withdrawals ## It took about 12 hrs for me. By 14 hrs I was in full detox mode. I'm on day 12 still in physical detox. But been taking 5 yrs due to injury surgery etc... ## Hello, Steve! How are you? How long were you taking it? If you took just one on that one day, you most likely won't experience any withdrawals. But otherwise, it's going to depend on how much you were taking and for how long, just like Dolphin has pointed out. 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. ## I have been taking oxycodone like 5 yrs never took b4 injury. Have had 3 shoulder surgery. Dr said if I took for pain...

orange no marking in blister packs
Hello, could someone tell me if these are what they say on the out side of blister packs? the pills are bright orange, coated,oblong tablets, no markings. outside of blister pack label says percocet 10 mg apap 650 mgs. manufactured for endo pharma. green and white label 10 per pack. Thank you. can't find these anywhere. i found the exact blister pack, but not the pills. they look like ibuprophen, to give an example. ## Hello, Treat! How are you? I'm sorry, but without any markings, there is really no way to definitively determine what these tablets contain. That is one of the hazards of obtaining medications from sources other than U.S. FDA approved pharmacies. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize these tablets?

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...

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 ...
