I've been prescribed percocet 10/325 for chronic pain. My question is I have to decide between Watson or Endo. Has anyone ever been given either of these two brands. Which works better? Thanks , I welcome all comments.

I really don't think it will matter very much. However, I do like Watson for many other meds. I'm not sure if I ever had Watson Percs, I may have. Last year I had MsContin made by Endo. I didn't like them. I also had them by another co. but I forget who. I liked the other co. better. If it was me, I'd go with the Watson.

There are very slight differences between manufacturers. Each contains the same active ingredients. In this case, those would be 10mg oxycoDONE and 325mg apap. The difference is the inactive ingredients or fillers. In rare cases, some people have a negative reaction to these fillers, so would want to find a mfg without that filler. Otherwise, the pills have the same strength and one should work as well as the other.

Def get the Watson,I've had Watson 10-325 Percocet for 6 years and its been by far the best for me. CVS has stopped carrying this brand. The last two months CVS has had Actavis and I've had severe headaches and my pain is out of control,its not helping me at all and making me very fatigued. I cannot find any pharm here in Ohio that carries the Watson anymore. My guess is too expensive? Consider yourself very lucky, In my experience the smaller,oval or dome shaped pills and,or softer powder like brands of Percocet donot work as well, if at all... as is the case "with Actavis". Take care & let me know if anyone has found and stuck with a manufacture of the Percocet 10-325 that works well.

( RESPONDING TO THIS QUESTION )Yes the 10/325 Percocets are stronger. But if you are going to be taking this medication on a regular basis or already are for whatever reason. The prolonged use of Percocets is not good for your liver due to the acetaminophen in it. So if your going to be on this medication for long term use, I would ask you doctor for 10mg Oxycodone tablets. Although the active ingredient in Percocets is Oxycodone, it's the acetaminophen that will do a number on your liver over time. The 10 mg Oxycodone tablet is just a 10/325mg Percocets, but no acetaminophen in it. It isn't stronger, just no acetaminophen. There are people out their that think 10/325 Percocet is stronger because of the numbers. But it's not. But always check with your doctor first. As far as ENDO & WATSON PHARMACEUTICAL LABORATORIES, they are just 2 other companies that make & distribute generic Percocet. Both are excellent in my opinion. I hope my knowledge was helpful to you. Have A Great Day.
