K56 Compared To Rp10

Sam Says:

What's the difference between 10mg k56 versus rp10? K56 is pink, what i usually get but today the pharmacist gave me rp10; a white pill.

They are both listed in the FDA databases as containing 10mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation, they have just been manufactured by different companies. 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 the new tablet working for you? Are you on any other medications?

Sam, the active ingredient is the same in both. The pink tablets with K 56 contain 10 mg Oxycodone (NDC 10702-056), and the white tablets with RP 10 also contain both 10 mg Oxycodone (NDC 42858-002). The main difference would be the inactive ingredients, which should technically not affect the efficacy of the drug.

The K56 tablets also contain: [1]
- Lactose Monohydrate
- Starch, Corn
- Cellulose, Microcrystalline
- Silicon Dioxide
- Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato
- Stearic Acid
- D&c Red No. 27

The RP 10 tablets also contain: [2]
- Cellulose, Microcrystalline
- Lactose Monohydrate
- Crospovidone
- Magnesium Stearate

My Dr for some reason changed me from a pink k 56 I had been on for yrs to a white round rp 10 same pill right ? No for some reason I have experienced all my pain is back so today I talked him into changing me back to the round pink k 56 and hopefully my pain will be gone in a day,I know I can't figure it out but for some reason they affect my body differently hope this help and don't confuse you cause I'm still scratching my head same pill why the difference?

Your doctor did not change anything. The pharmacy filled it with what they had on the shelf.
