1000 mg percocet
Want to know what a 1000 mg percocets l ook like ## They don't make one like that. ## @boo bear, BL is right, you're not going to find any Percocets with that type of dosage. It is only available in the following dosage forms: 2.5/325, 5/325, 7.5/325, and 10/325 respectively. The amount of acetaminophen used to be 500mg and 600mg in the 7.5 and 10mg tablets, but due to recent reports regarding acetaminophen and increased liver toxicity, the amount as of Jan 2014 is now capped off at 325mgs. Could you possibly be thinking of another medication altogether?

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 pill has the numbers 523 and 325
I found a pill that has 325 on front and 523 on back ## Hello, Rae! How are you? Is it a white, capsule shaped tablet with M523 on one side and 10/325 on the back? If so, then it is a generic for Percocet that contains 10mgs 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.

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 20 mg
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...

pain doctor
Can anyone tell me a good pain doctor in Philadelphia. Looking for percocet 30s ## Hello, Networks son! How are you? There is no such thing as a Percocet 30. Percocet is a combination medication that contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, it is only available in a maximum dosage of 10mgs Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Anything higher than that would most likely be just Oxycodone by itself, in either the time released formulation known by the trade name Oxycontin or the regular release formulation available under the trade name Roxicodone, as well as as a generic. 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. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to...

white oblong pill with a333
This a333 is generic for percocet and CVS is dispensing them, OXYCODONE10/3.25 is what they are. ## Thanks for taking the time to share this information. To anyone else needing a second opinion, I can also confirm that an oblong white pill marked with "A333" is in fact identified as Oxycodone (10mg) + Acetaminophen (325mg); which is used to treat moderate to severe pain. For verification, this tablet is said to be manufactured by Actavis, and has a National Drug Code of 00228-2983-11. Does anyone here have personal experience or feedback from trying these over other manufacturer's brands/generics? I heard one complaint about someone having stomach or GI problems from this particular form, but have yet to come across a list of inactive ingredients to see what exactly might be...

real percocets
i always thought the 512 percocets were real percocets not generic but found out they were generic. what do real percocets look like and is there any difference between the real percocets and the generics? ## Dr. prescribed Percocet, Pharm gave me generic Oxycod/apap 5-325.

Getting Prescriptions From 2 Different Doctors For Pain Meds But They Are Conditions
Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is condsidered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injuryed my knee. Well i have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me too. He prescribes pain meds for me, the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doctor ...

Have Relocated From Ny To Pensacola /Destin FL area, Does anyone know of pain specialist who can help me? Need percocet 10mg. I have all my records.
Have a multitude of chronic pain issues and can not find doctor to help me.Have medical records with me. Reports from Neurologist, Rhuematologist,, Pain Treatment Center, Physiatrist, MRI's, CT Scan and three years of pharmacy records. Being treated like a drug addict. Without meds for three months. (Percocet 10/325). Not functioning and very sick. Can anyone help me? ## How have you been looking for a doctor? The reason I'm asking is because the biggest mistake I see many people making in your situation is calling a new doctor and asking if they will prescribe a particular medication. If you do that, doctors and their staff will view it as drug seeking behavior and, in many cases, you won't even get in the door. What you need to do is set up an appointment with a new pain m...
