blank pain Says:

I was involved in a car accient last year and am now working with a Pain Manage clinic. I have had injections upon injections, epiderals, blah blah and now they belive it is a tear in my disc between L4 and L5. Needless to say VERY painful. The most recent visit has placed me on Oxy AGAIN. I acutally took myself off them a few months ago because the pain was not getting ANY less... actually the same if not worse regardless of how many or mg increase. At 20 mg 2 X day I said I am done and started to only take 1 them none. That was miserable... Switched Doctors.. told him all of this and what does he do .. BACK ON THE OXY.. I have found that Percocet 7.5/325 2 pills 3 X day work the best AND it I don't have bad pain I don't HAVE to take it. I am so frustrated and I have called them 1 time a day for the last 4 days to get this med changed STILL NO RESPONSE.... Can anyone confirm that I am not crazy:-(

Oxycotin and percocet are the same drug except the perc. has tyenol in it. Percocet has 5, 7.5, &10mgs. of oxycodone in it , which is the same thing ,but 20mg, is suposed to be twice as strong as a 10 mg. percocet..I've been on both ,because of a 4 buldging disc between L-1 and L-5 and C-1 &c-2 very Painful. and several injections, bla bla for the last ten years. I do't want an operation because their is no guarantee from my doc that is a 50-50 chance for better or worse, I don't like the odds , and I do have good days, you have to eat right and try not to do too much activity that will make more pain! I am on oxycontin and 10 mg of methadon 3 times a day and this really helps me most times, but your body builds a tolerence with these pain meds. increase is tool that docs use to prevent your pain W/O Surgery over time depending on the situation, everybody is differt case, talk to other people in the same boat as you.

I am a cancer patient taking Oxycontin a long time now. I switched to name brand Oxycontin ONLY after commenting to my pharmacist that the Oxycontin Teva was not working. The respone? The filler in the Teva brand is probably not working! Long battles with insurance, but, in the world of pain, the battle was worth it. Try switching to a different manufacturer, or request name brand only. Hope this helps you.

Now, the truth about generic drugs:

According to law, generic drugs are allowed to differ from their name brand counterparts, in the ACTIVE INGREDIENT, by as much as PLUS OR MINUS 20%.

In addition, the active ingredient does not necessarily have to be the same at all, the company only has to show that it is 'bio-equivelent,' meaning that it acts in the body in the same way the original active ingredient did.

As to the inactive ingredients, they can be totally different.

So, there can be some problems with generic drugs, especially if a company does not have rigorous quality control.

Is the meds bothering you or making you sick? Because if you have severe pain , I know firsthand about this , but take them if you are in that position, some people are different and cant take them or dont want to take them because of certain mindsets we have in society.Nobody should suffer , they have some wonderful drugs out there ,you and your Doc have to figure out what works for you and if the doc don't want to help you, fire him and get another one!

Thanks for the info on generic drugs as I have had so many people complain about them to me over the years and I have never known what to say to them. Do you know anything about the new Elago ER hydromorphone generic that was just released. I looked at the fillers in them and was horrified to find a toluene related chemical among other bad chemicals in there. There are also sulfites in short-acting dilaudid pills. Any of these could cause problems for some people. Toluene is a carcinigenic. Of course the FDA would say it was in too low of a dose to cause problems. Anything you might know would be helpful. Thanks.
