Prescribed to me after a car accident resulting in a broken collar bone & a few broken ribs (T-boned by drunk driver). It says "Generic For: Percocet" on the label. I read posts here saying they are Percocet, but also they're not because of them being "Generic" (I suppose that makes them different somehow?). They're round and white with 4839 over a V. Do my "Generic" oxycodone-acetaminophen differ in any way from a (non "Generic") Percocet? Does them being labeled as "Generic For" mean they're different somehow (in strength/effect, etc)? Would a Percocet be more effective in pain relief, or would my "Generic" pills have the same effect? I'm not a doctor or pharmacist so please answer as simply as possible. Thank you.
