I have been taking percocet 10/325 for horrible fibromyalgia pain and have had no issue with it's effectiveness. nI fact I believe it is the only thing that has kept me able to work.. I renewed the prescripion and continued it about a week ago only to find that it is now A333. I IMMEDIATELY had severe side effects nausea, dizziness, vomiting, feverish feeling, clumsiness, all the usual suspects. I could not work today because of this and have been told by my pharmacy, CVS, that traditional percocet is not covered by my health insurance and I would have to pay $ 1300.00 to renew the prescription. I believe that changing the formula of the medication without notifying patients is fraudulence and malpractice on part of the pharmaceutical company and will be pursuing this.

Hello, Ellen! How are you?

The formula has not changed. You just received the tablets that were manufactured by a different company than the ones you usually received. Many people have been unhappy with them, but they do still contain Oxycodone and Acetaminophen, just like all other Percocet generics.

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.

What I would suggest is speaking to your doctor to see if you can try a different medication.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have degenerative back disease and have had colon cancer. I have been on Percocet for 1 year. This script has done nothing. I take my dose and get so sleepy and it's not controlling my pain. I can't even look at my phone or concentrate for very long causing me to misspell words and drop my phone. I think they messed with the formula.
