I get 10/325 every once in a while to get through really bad pain times as my whole spine seems to just be falling apart. I always felt some kind of relief from previous 10 325 prescriptions until today, when CVS gave me Rhodes RP 10 325's. I immediately noticed they're small round tablets and not the oblong big ones I've always received but thought "who cares" what they look like as they should be the same since I got them from CVS. So far, after taking these tablets, as prescribed, one at a time every 6 hours for a day, and... Nothing. They aren't doing anything.
Rhodes Morphine and Percocet are junk and provide no pain relief. PA, w/o notice, suddenly lowered dose my MD just increased, when I stated Rhodes is useless with numerous complaints. I can't function and asking my original dose reinstated. No pharmacies stocks the best med, Malinckrodt, as inferior Rhodes is cheaper. FDA must inspect this lab, as we chronic pain patients are severely suffering!
I am a chronic pain sufferer who won't go into details But I have been on pain medication for 21 years.
always did well with Oxycodone 10/325. Just had my prescription refilled at Walmart. the pills looked different and smaller. There now using RP brand. I took 1 and started feeling very sick. went to bed trying not to throw up. I am shakey and dizzy and just feel awful and felt no pain relief.
this medication is not good. What I used to get. Don't know the manufacturer had no side effects whatsoever. I just feel sick from just 1 pill. Can't get anything done on this brand of Oxycodone
I suffer from chronic pain and have been on oxycodone for many yrs. without problems recently had filled a r/x for 10/325 at CVS have had nothing but problems headaches and 0 pain relief manufactured by RHODES
I have major chronic pain after a C-spine injury. I have noticed as well issues with the Rhodes manufacture. However I have also noticed that pharmacy are only carrying this manufacture. I had to file a complaint with the FDA, in hopes to get to the bottom of the problem with their medications. I get no pain relief either as well as instant migraine and nausea. If you expenrience issues there is a website you can go onto and file a report. the more of us that file reports the sooner they will investigate them. https://www.fda.gov/safety/medwatch-fda-safety-information-and-adverse-event-reporting-program This should help you get to the site.
This medication does absolutely nothing. How can they get away with this? I took triple the dose and still nothing. Fortunately no stomach issue like others reported. Nothing at all. Like I didn't take anything at all.
Yes! I’ve been suffering from chronic pain and degenerative disc disease among other pain causing illnesses for more that 15 years. I have been prescribed Percocet 10/325 for many of those years, always received the generic version and didn’t experience any side effects. More recently, CVS has started to dispense Rhodes generic and that’s when I noticed a decrease in efficacy ( no pain relief!) and some unwanted side effects. Some are associated with GI issues ( stomach pain, diarrhea etc.) and I see from previous comments, where these could be caused by lactose in the list of excipients in the Rhodes generic and related intolerance. However, I also started sweating profusely after taking each pill and noticed accelerated heart beat.
I have lowered my dose since to 5/325 but the sweating and palpitations didn’t decrease. I can only deduct that these side effects are caused by Rhodes generic Percocet. The generic equivalent I have received at the hospital and /or ER doesn’t affect me and yet relieves the pain.
I find it worrisome that many patients( me included) have “unusual “ side effects while on Rhodes Percocet; if it is indeed a cheaper generic and used by one of the largest retail pharmacies for financial reasons, then this might be a larger issue to be looked into. Chronic pain patients are owed some answers. Life with pain can be complicated enough without having to worry about the efficacy and (safety??? ) of a generic drug like Rhodes Percocet!!!
I have had 4 operations for chronic back pain and have been using various manufactures of 10 mg Oxycodone for more than 15 years. My experience with Rhodes Pharmaceuticals Oxycodone 10-325 was as if I had taken a foul-tasting placebo. I received absolutely no pain relief and suffered opioid withdrawal symptoms after taking maximum dosage. I am now doomed to suffer withdrawal and remain in acute pain for a full month. There appears to be no solution for this dilemma and dozens of similar complaints about Rhodes-manufactured Oxycodone appear throughout the Internet. Would that I had done a google search before accepting this product from CVS. Someone should file a class action suit and FDA should pull Rhodes pills off the market. Rhodes and Pharmacies that sell this cheap, worthless, product should be ashamed and boycotted.
So I have to share my 2 cents about Rhodes. I’ve been using this generic for almost a decade. It works very well for me and has never made me sick. Even with the very first time I took it when switched. The other names listed (I can’t remember them, sorry), I have read so very many negative comments about them, and for the same things... making people sick and not having any pain relief. I think it depends on what you take first: what your body comes to expect from the oxycodone. It’s the fillers that are different. So if you’re started on Rhodes, you get used to it quickly and it works well for you. If your pharmacy changes generics and you’re given a new one, then I can totally understand getting sick from it. With the fillers being different, your body is now having to process it completely differently. So people react to it, and with continued use would get used to it and then it would work. I think this is why there is so much difference in people’s opinions of each brand.
I am a male in my 60s … have had to take generic versions of this drug for 2 decades off and on. Around Oct of last year (2018) I got a regular refill, when I got home I noticed it was not the usual brand … but I took it, it didn't seem to work, gave me an odd feeling and it gave me > well lets just say I had to live in the bathroom on the toilet. I stopped taking it … the problem went away. Started it up again … same problem. I threw it away. Next month same thing happen … if I took Rhodes I got almost uncontrollable trips to the toilet … stop the drug they went away …. had to inform my pharmacy that I could not take this version.
I found out many pharmacies started stocking this brand because of low price cost.
As I said, because of a injury and muscle condition I have take this off and on for 25 years > and never had this issue until I was given 10mg/325mg manufactured by Rhodes
When my pharmacy changed manufacturer to Rhodes last October 2018.
I went in to pick up my Percocet 10/325 mg tab rhod
I notice right away the taste then the feeling of getting sick from it.
I contacted my pharmacy with my concerns and that is when they told me they changed to a new manufacturer Rhodes. They proceeded to tell me drink milk or eat something before taking it.
I have been taking this medicine for over two year and have always eaten and drank milk before I take any medication, I just never got sick from this medicine until they changed manufacturers. Not only that it’s not taking the pain away like it did before the change. I don’t want to take more than what my doctor is prescribing, I am in so much pain asking my doctor if there was anything stronger to take the pain away.
Still to this day with the same manufacturer I get bad taste and get sick from time to time.
Has anybody used Rhodes Pharmaceuticals Oxycodone?
I unfortunately broke my ankle last night walking my dog. The 5mg x 2 Oxycodones they gave me in the hospital ED worked fine last night. I picked up 15 generic 5mg Percocets made by Rhodes Pharmaceuticals at my local CVS today. They seem like garbage. Has anybody else tried these generics? I am having surgery next Wednesday. Is it worth requesting and paying for brand name Percocets? I appreciate any feedback
Steele; I have looked this up there should not be any problems, There really is no difference all this has is the 2 ingredients in it and this is an Sch II which has the tightest restrictions of any medication Check with your doctor if you're having problems with this you more than likely would with any brand. The Oxycodone comes from the same place and generic Tylenol is all the same.
