I don't usually count the pills when I pick up my Rx. This time I did & felt a difference in the thickness. Some are marked NP on one side & K57 on one side & blank on the other. I'm assuming they're from different Mfg Co's but don't like to assume with my pain pills! Also, is it normal practice for Pharmacies to mix?

I have a bad back and am wondering if being prescribed oxycodone would be the best course of action?

Verwon Says:

Yes, these both contain 20mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation and mixing can be normal, if your pharmacy doesn't have enough of one to fill your prescription. There is nothing wrong with it.

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.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Can u please tell me wtf is the difference between the oxycodone 20mg imprint np 14 and the other one imprinted k57. I have read that the np 14 sucks and that ther is 20% less mecidine inside of it. That person was jus talklin a whole bunch of s*** abt it. But then again .... maybe he or she had a tolerance to pain pills in his or her body seeing as he/she stated "ivr been on pills for 25+ yers and this is bull s*** is it even legal to make a good pill worthless"

Does any one know if that is true ??? One phsrmacy i spoke to said that one of those two might have more medicine or less, he said: "just because it says 20mg doesnt meen that it is one might have 15% less or one might have 22%" is that tru?? Why is there TWO different manufactured companies? Does it mean that the np14 is the s*** one?? Can somone PLEASE ease my mind so i can stop thinking like that cause its mind over matter if you think something doesnt work and wont work you will summon that into reality and make it not wrk ... and i dont wanna go along with what ONE stupid person says..... than again i just have that feeling in my heart thst the k57 is bettr.... uh uh maybe im jus overreacting???

Sorry for the long ass annoying post but i want to be as clear as possible. Also does any one else feel like falling asleep hardcore too?? Is that a "high" or jus tiredness.... this is a somewhat new medication i am on, i used to get norcos and felt somthing in my body... so idk i feel weird. Again i apoligize for the long long post

I was switched to oxycodone 20 mg 2 months ago. The first ones I got were the k 57, and I was amazed at how well they worked and how much better I felt overall. I had previously been on Norcos for daytime and Percocet for night, but they had to change it due to DEA regs and they put me on straight oxycodone. The next prescription I got were the np 14, and I felt like I was taking a completely different drug. It was as if it was half strength, and I felt depressed, so I'm actually glad to see someone ask this question. I KNEW I wasn't imagining it, but I thought maybe the batch I got was just old or something and had lost it's potency. So imho, the k 57 are much better, and I'm going to be asking the pharmacy when I get them filled which one they are going to use, because I'll look for the k 57 before I settle for the np 14 again. It's ridiculous to have that much difference.

They both work just the same it's all in your head when someone tells you different they both have same amount the np 14 is just ganaric form don't listen to what others say cause they are the same. It's all mind over matter and some Ppl can trick there brain to thinking ones better than the other but in reality they're the same. Good luck.

They're the same exact thing, it's usually junkies that abuse them and like certain ones better, but it's all in their heads. They are 20 mg hydrocodone bottom line. If your getting 90 from the pharmacy and they have 60 nps left and then give you 30 of a different brand their not gonna give you 2 different types of meds. This makes me so mad cause usually it's junkies that are causing the confusion for people that really need them. My best friend is dying from cancer, we live in Philadelphia and it takes hrs for him get his Rx filled cause of people that abuse them or have a crooked dr.

I have been taking 20 mg oxycodone for a year. The white pill. Now they gave me oxycodone small blue marked k 57 and they are horrible. They make me tired and are non effective. I think it may be a individual thing but there for sure is a differnt chemical makeup.

Everyone, you do realize that these things are very strictly regulated. Let's just say that I am familiar with the FDA who helps to monitor the manufacturing of all medications. ALL medications are monitored and ALL manufacturers are required to adhere to stringent standards. They would not jeopardize losing their license to under-dose a medication. People, please realize that drugs are tested. First, here is a link to help people better understand that you are protected from medications being stronger or weaker from different manufacturers:

http:/­/­www.fda.gov/­Drugs/­DevelopmentApprovalProcess/­Manufacturing/­ucm090016.htm

Below is the first paragraph from the above link:

" FDA ensures the quality of drug products by carefully monitoring drug manufacturers' compliance with its Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) regulations. The CGMP regulations for drugs contain minimum requirements for the methods, facilities, and controls used in manufacturing, processing, and packing of a drug product. The regulations make sure that a product is safe for use, and that it has the ingredients and strength it claims to have. "

You need to tell your doctor that you're allergic to that type of pill with all of the allergic symptoms and qualitest name brand is the best I have found that is less fillers more natural.

Not true junkies as you call them have no effect on the speed of the pharmacists that fills them lol. And you know not everyone that buys them on the street are junkies. Most people need them but can't afford the doctors or dont have insurance. All though there are a lot of people that give people like us a hard time by cause they want to abuse, its really sad and they need help but clinics to get off of pain med cost a lot of money and the meds to get you off opiates cost even more. Not only that but they can only have 100 suboxone patients at a time how's that for fighting a losing battle.

Peoples internal body chemistry makes a lot of difference in how a certain medicine will work. Do not freak out if given either brand K or the NP 14s. I've taken every brand out there and both of these worked very well. I was not disappointed at all with the NP 14s. Give them a chance.

K 57 are not hydrocodone. They are 20 mg instant release oxycodone. Hydrocodone are the generic name for Vicodin. Which are one of the weakest form of pain medicine. Also containing 325 mg of Tylenol per pill. Oxycodone or roxicontin are for acute severe pain mostly for cancer patients. They are the most abused form of pain medicine.
