(Newest replies first)

Robert Says:

The pill is white round imprinted with RP and 7.5 325. Manufactured by rhodes pharmaceuticals. It is oxycodone/acetaminophen. Have there been any reviews good or bad on this pill or compared to other manufacturers?

I have the same problem that was described above with the sores and puss under my arms, not from Rhodes products but from various other brand opioids.

Purdue pharmaceuticals has bent the american public over and stuck it to them until we sue or raise some legal hell over this. They're gonna walk away with billions in hidden money overseas. I ain't stupid. These so called 7mg percs are really 4 mg etc, so everybody take heed to this. I ended up with thyroid cancer because of their damn cheap lies... FDA is involved with them on kickbacks. If it wasn't they would have shut purdue down yrs ago. They knew 3 yrs ago they were dealing generics and oxys by paying doctors to prescribe them. My doctor told me this himself, god have mercy.

Rhodes Percocet 10-325 have been almost no better than Tylenol for me. I just picked up my script last night and for the first time ever, CVS, RiteAid, Walgreens and Costco are ALL dispensing Rhodes. I had no choice but to get them. I will take 3 at a time if my pain is really great, otherwise, I'll stick to Tylenol. Maybe this is the Universe's way of telling me to get off Opiates after 19 years of use.

I have RA/FM and pain has been bad. Looked into new company (Rhodes) and see others have same issues . Pharmacy said insurance pays for cheapest med. Scary to think a bad medication gets rewarded with new customers.

Re: Hyperbarics (# 54) Expand Referenced Message

Pharmacies won’t accept any remaining pills back, and can’t, due to quality control issues.
You may be able to get an appointment with your pain doctor (or prescribing doc) and explain situation and bring back remaining pills. They may be willing to write you a new rx for the # of useless Rhodes Pharma pills you turn in, but be prepared beforehand because you could end up with nothing until you’re eligible for your next script. Why? Most insurers cover a month’s worth of drugs and will not fill earlier, especially in the case of a commonly abused rx like Percocet. I am familiar with Kaiser of Southern CA and can tell you that your doc would need to write a letter to the pharmacy division of Kaiser’s Utilization Review Dept. stating that the remainder should be refilled by a manufacturer other than Rhodes, and the reason why, which would likely mean Kaiser would have to special order or you’d need to go to a non-Kaiser pharmacy for your refill IF they approve his/her request. I’m quite sure that even if you saw the doctor tomorrow and turned in your remaining pills, the process above would take 6-8 weeks minimum and you might be better off not trying to get Kaiser to pay for replacement of the Rhodes pills. Rather, see if your doctor will simply write you a script for the remainder of Rhodes pills you turn in.
But you still face a big hurdle even if you opt to pay out of pocket. I’ve worked in ER medicine for several years and you may know this as a nurse. There is a controlled substance database that must be maintained by each state, as required and overseen by the DEA. I believe 100% of all states are now compliant; FL was one of the last to states to comply and the most difficult to wrangle in. These databases of certain controlled substances (like opioids) are used by doctors, ERs and pharmacies to determine and discourage ER frequent fliers and doctor shoppers. Patients have no access to the database and cannot request a copy of their info to see and report errors, (in the beginning, patients could request print outs on themselves, but many drug abusers were claiming huge error rates on the reports and it was decided the nature of the substance made truthful self-reporting unlikely).
If you fill a 30-day rx for Percocet on the 1st of the month, regardless of the method of payment, the filling pharmacy enters the info into the database. At the end of each month, the DEA requires the rxing doctor to send a copy of the rx to the DEA and the state database. Thus, if you see the doctor to get the Percocets exchanged for another manufacturer’s pills and try to refill the remainder of the 30-day rx before 30 days has passed, the pharmacy will likely consult the database and see you’ve filled an rx for the same drug, covering the same time period, within the past 30 days and you won’t be able to fill it. I have gotten around this through complete drugstore error; I have a script that lists 2 drugs from the same doctor, but the drugs aren’t on the same filling schedule. This past month, however, the drugstore didn’t bother to check CURES (CA’s controlled substance database) and filled both, despite it being 13 days too early for a refill.
Other than a complete error or laziness on the part of a pharmacist, I know of no way to get around CURES, although perhaps filling the drug in another state might work (I have heard that the DEA hadn’t anticipated the huge amount of time and work it would take to oversee all the databases and that coordination of information between states is not up to date).

5 months post four trauma surgeries, LLE, as well as- right femur break, total breast removal...blah blah

Back to work this week, utilizing two 10/325 percocet po 2x a day; pain is significant from femur down left side... Picture post two steel plates, new knee, eleven rods and pins.

Point: Meds. as of this am - via Kaiser rx were switched to a Rhodes P manufactured 10/325 generic percocet pain reliever. .. Rhodes side effects include IE; not limited to nausea, intensified chronic issues, vomiting, migraine ( first migraine ever, overwhelming bone pain, etc.) rash around wrists and in between fingers tiny red bumps reactive to heat/hot showers.

Joe (# 32) --

I am also in CA, taking Percocet 10-325, and have found Watson to be the best generic and Rhodes to be the worst, providing no relief. CVS and Rite Aid seem to supply Rhodes for 4-6 months and then they’ll go back to Mallinckrodt, Qualitest, Endocet, Actavis, or some other generic (all better than Rhodes) for a few months, before dispensing Rhodes again. I have mostly been able to switch between Rite Aid and CVS to avoid RP Percocets. The first time I had Rhodes Percocets dispensed I worried that perhaps there was an issue of tolerance on my part. About 6 months later, both CVS and Rite Aid were dispensing Rhodes. Once again, I received no relief from the RP 10-325. I’m now sure the issue is not about tolerance but drug formula quality, since every other Percocet manufacturer I’ve tried works for me. I told my pain doc about the Rhodes issue about 2 years ago. He said he’d had this complaint from 2-3 patients. After I had my script filled with Rhodes again, I talked to my doctor about it again. He said he’d heard about the Rhodes issue from several other patients since we last spoke.

Re: zelliebean (# 14) Expand Referenced Message

The Rhodes Percocet I got just didn't work right. It's from CVS and they tell me "it's whatever I can get". The pills from Actavis work perfectly. And I can easily cut them in half if I need to. I have celiacs disease, so I'm wondering about the fillers in the meds.
And tramadol did nothing for me either.

My heart goes out to all of you who are suffering from what seems to me to be withdrawal symptoms. I know from experience that eds result in a miserable state of mind and body, not to mention the pain from whatever originally caused you to seek relief. Reading these posts, I can't help but think that someone in the supply chain has altered your medication, or outright fully counterfeited it. All it would take is someone with a pill press and skill at making molds, or an employee of the manufacturer with access to a pill machine (my guess is that the machines are not nearly as tightly guarded as the controlled substances themselves). Then someone just replaces the real ones with real looking counterfeits and no one is the wiser except for the poor patients who need them. The profit that could be made is enormous, and where there is a will, there is a way. The alternative idea of the manufacturer knowingly providing fake or highly diluted pills is less likely IMO because of what they stand to lose for such little profit gained. The faith in their entire product line would be in jeopardy were they to be found out by the F.D.A. or some other route. It just doesn't make sense. Also, the symptoms you all seem to be describing are akin to a full or near full withdrawal, not cutting the dose by 10-20-30%. I would have a sample analyzed to see if it is truly oxycodone along with an evaluation to verify it's potency. Would be a good idea to keep the pharmacy satisfied with chain of custody when sending it in for evaluation. Hope this may at least start you on the right track.

Dear Zelliebean..I could have written your letter as I am exactly in the same physical condition and had been getting the same med as you from CVS that helped..from Qualitest and just a week or so ago was given this Rhodes brand instead. It does nothing except make me so weak and dizzy..sleeping all the time even through the pain. I just talked to my CVS pharmacist about other complaints and she says she really hasn't had any. I find it hard to believe its only me when these forums are full of complaints. Take care!

Re: Deborah (# 5) Expand Referenced Message

Just picked up 75 percocet from the pharmacy (RP5 325). I had forgotten I've had this kind before and gotten violently ill. Only one drug store was open, so I got them. The sickness I feel is no ordinary side effect. I have been on percs for two yrs and only get a slight dizziness once or twice. My head won't stop pounding, sweats and clammy skin, my body feels like it's on fire, vomiting and severe dizziness. Not to mention, it's not doing anything for pain. I felt better without it. I can't even hold my head up and it's affecting my vision. I've heard others say they had this and were able to get a new script. I can go to another pharmacy with safer pills. How do I do this with a 30 day supply that's already in the database? Please!! I need a quick answer. I still have 70.

Brandy Says:

I was given this crap and it's horrible. Nausea which I never get from Percoset. I had previously taken 5 mg which worked great. These make me feel awful. A little loopy and tired but NO pain relief at all. Nothing. I only took the 5mg for one week and was happy to get 7.5. This is rediculous. Never again. I am going to another pharmacy. Note that I get other meds and have never had an issue with a pharmaceutical company. I also never get sick from any meds especially with eating. I don't even think this is real percoset honestly.
