Is the Amneal generic brand for oxycodone 20mg, gray in color, round, marked A 50 on either side of the score line and no marks on other side IMMEDIATE RELEASE? It certainly has the quick melting and is extremely bitter just like KVK I have been taking which I am positive is IR. I hope someone knows the answer....thanks in advance.

First of all, to clarify, the only actual immediate release Oxycodone is only available in a 5mg capsule.

Beyond that, there are regular release formulations, and the extended release Oxycontin. In many cases the regular release is just called 'immediate release' because all of the medication is released, at once, unlike Oxycontin, which slowly releases the dosage overtime. However, the regular release formulations still take about 15 to 20 minutes to have an effect, after you take them, though they may work faster if you are letting them melt in your mouth, or start to melt, before swallowing them. (Not a taste I'd like to experience, but that's just me. LOL) The meaning of immediate release is quite often misunderstood. I am not calling fault with you, or anything, I am just going for clarity here, in hopes of possibly helping people that may be confused.

As to the tablet in question, it is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation, which is what is commonly considered instant/immediate release, since it is all released at once.

It is enough to make one wish the FDA had some rules that specified what could be used for certain formulations to describe them. There are A LOT that can be used to designate something as being time time released, such XR, ER, CR, SR, and more. It gets confusing, sometimes.

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

How is it working for you?

I've gotten to the point that I don't want Amneal at all!! Don't believe it's the doctor's fault since this was the first time I got the Rx Amneal. Now my stomach hurts all the time and I'm sure going to let the doctor know about these lies and abuse of prescribed medication strengths, which should be illegal. I heard on the news yesterday (1-11-2018) that strengths for vets have been reduced purposely to prevent overdosing and suicides. But what about the rest of us who have bona fide chronic pain?! What do we do?
