Percocet Generic Report On Phasing Out Opioids By The Year 2021

I got a report to read from the FDA sent from the DEA on generic Percocet from a friend's family member that works for the FDA. The report said that in their discussions they came up with a plan to stop people from dying from overdoses & addiction. Said Generic Percocet is the most abused medicine on the market. They have in place a 20% tolerance on generic pain medication and they deemed this wasn't helping the abuse of Percocet. People have been complaining in the thousands about Rhodes Pharmaceuticals and others not putting the correct amount of opioid in generic Percocet plus it seems to be making people sick.

In the report not only are they decreasing the 20%, but also adding 50% to the 20% so you're getting 70% less of the active ingredient in Rhodes/Purdue Pharmaceuticals medication. So say you're taking Rhodes generic Percocet 10mg - you're getting around 4% of the active ingredient and in the 5mg you're getting 2%. Not only are they cutting the medication your doctor prescribed but adding fillers that make your stomach hurt making people stop taking opioids altogether. This plan has a goal by the year 2021 to phase out opioids altogether with the exception of hospitals. After reading this I said this must be Trump's doing? They said look at the date. It's from the year 2014 and is an Obama administration idea, not Trump. So no matter how many complaints reports you fill out, you're wasting your time. They aren't addressing these complaints because the two agencies are in on stopping opioids by 2021. Only in America.

Hi Tommy - Is there any way that you can dig up a link to the article you are referring to, or any other details from the FDA or DEA .gov sites? I tried searching myself but all I found was some information from June of this year, stating that the FDA is making Endo Pharmaceuticals pull Opana ER off the market [1]. Although I do agree with the overall theme of what you are saying since there is also information out there about how the DEA is aiming to reduce the production of opioids by 25% starting in 2017 [2].

If you could please add any other details from their official sites it would be very helpful and give all of us something more to chew on.

Re: Roy (# 1)

Hi Roy, this report was not meant for the public to see. As I said I got to see this from a friend's family member that works for the FDA. I asked if I could print a copy of this and was told he would lose his job plus think what repercussions would be if the FDA & DEA got caught tampering with pain medication. But it's true that your pain medication is being decreased to stop overdoses and addiction but breaking the law doing it. Maybe there's a law to start lowering opioids in pain medication. But with all the complaints and sickness happening by taking generic Percocet, it adds up that the FDA & DEA are working on this because nothing is being done. This is wrong but what can you do. Would have loved to have made a copy of that report but even with that nothing would happen in these dark days in America

Re: Happy Man (# 4)

All I can say is that it said it was a discussion between the two agencies. I have no reason to lie. Just wait and see what's going to happen in the next couple of years. Thanks for voicing your opinion.

Re: Tommy (# 5)

I will stick to my opinion which is based on fact - not your fiction! The FDA and DEA are NOT colluding to make Percocet less effective. Trust me if they were, you would not have seen any paperwork!!

Can anyone who has had the sick issue with Rhodes, advise me on how to get another script from pm, so I can go get pills that don't make me sick? I'm stuck with 75 of these. I just got them. Can't go thru a month of this. Please, someone tell me what can be done. I know this is in the pmp database. How do they make the exception? - "People who have already done this".

Re: Diane (# 8)

Well then that simply shows you don't know what you are talking about either!! Let me explain Diane, Norco & Percocet are 2 different drugs & both are brand names. Norco has hydrocodone & Percocet has oxycodone....

I am in the know and have been dealing with kind of stuff for more than 2 decades & am a former pain management patient, 5 different neck and back surgeries with a couple cancer diagnosis' thrown in for good measure. I can assure you that those agencies don't have to fool you....bottom line is the days of prescribing opiods to make the patient comfortable is OVER. I suggest anyone that has been on long term pain killers to tell their doctor they want off to know what their true pain level is. They can help taper you back safely.....pain pills are a thing of the past, so get ready!

Re: Diane (# 8)

Please don't pay any attention to Happy Man, sounds very bitter. Bitter Man should be his name. Must have gotten kicked out of his pain clinic for abuse of the medicine he was prescribed. Mad at the world

Re: Tommy (# 11)

What's the matter Tommy?? You a drug abuser and don't want to hear the truth?? Explain to me how I am wrong about Norco and Percocet? I didn't think so. Don't know why I am wasting my time helping people who obviously don't want help and would rather spread rumors to a blog site....LMAO Go back to sleep Tommy Boy

Re: karol (# 15)

I just think this is the beginning of the end. I hope I'm wrong and it's nothing to this & like you said it's not for ppl already getting meds but new ones, I think? But I'll never go to CVS even for batteries, they are just a drugstore among many to choose from. I've never used CVS except for getting film developed, & u know how long that's been since we used film to take pictures. Thanks

Re: Roy (# 1)

I read a story on Wikipedia about Purdue/Rhodes Pharmaceuticals tampering with opioid deterrents in their generic percocet and other medicine. In the Wikipedia search, put "Purdue Pharma L P 2007" and read about it. I've searched Wikipedia and had documents saying this but couldn't release it to the public. But I found a 2007 document about this problem because Rhodes is owned by Purdue Pharmaceuticals and their Percocet are making ppl sick because these ppl are adding and tampering with their Percocet generic medicine.

Re: Lady c (# 7)

I went through same circumstance. Every month for months I’d never know what generic brand I would receive from 2014 & each one headaches, stomach issues, overwhelming fatigue as if I was being poisoned. 3mos ago I spoke to my pharmacist who then switched me permanently by noting on my account Record “MEDICALLY NECESSARY ENDOCET GENERIC PERCOCET ONLY” ENDOCET is the highest grade generic & is identical to Percocet formula as it’s made by ENDO MANUFACTURING who makes PERCOCET. I go to a non-chain family pharmacy which makes a difference in loyalty & communication. I suggest you do same as I did. I feel like “me” again AMEN!

Re: Happy Man (# 6)

Do you believe me now? You said I was lying about phasing out opioids by the year 2021. Seems like Trump has upped it to ASAP for a non-opioid pain medication. I did read the report & just because I can't put the content on MedsChat didn't mean I was lying. They are going to phase the Norco you take out too. Not sure why you tried to bully me into saying I was lying. I would like to hear your comments on phasing out opioids now. President Trump said it on tv so maybe you'll believe him.
