I have been taking 20 mg. oxycodone for about 3 yrs. I recently changed pharmacies. the oxycodone they gave me is not the same.The new ones make me feel terrible. anxious,sweaty,very unpleasant. Not at all like the ones I have been taking. Don't now what to do. If I keep taking I feel bad if I don't I go thought withdrawal. no good choice. please help. thank you. Distressed in Oregon.
Steven Thill; They should be the same I have taken just about all the different brands on Oxycodone and never had a problem. As far as facts from the FDA BOARD THE ONLY difference in these is the binder the active ingredients is the same But really we get used to one brand and our minds can fool us also I use this all the time. To be honest with you on any generic they are held to very high standards the same as the brand names and that is 3 to 4% difference on blood level which is not enough to bother anyone. Again the only real difference is the binders that are the stuff they mix the Oxycodone with this can vary and cause something different to work. You could ask the new Pharmacy if they can get the brand you are used to. for the next time. Best of luck.
Steven, I had the same issue with the same medication. My pharmacist and I looked into other options via her computer. Endocet is another name for percocet, oxycodone. Go with the Endocet (you're still charged generic price), this is the step I took. No more nasty side effects and the effectiveness is equal to that of your original medication!
To whom it may concern,
There is definitely a difference in generic manufacturers..I've had to change mine to have a pain medication that works effectively.
Actavis used to be fairly good but now ,not so much.Mellincrot( misspelled), new Watson,and others are no good..Rhodes is fair, but Kvk Tech and Sandos are better as far as immediate release oxycodone.Also I find Walgreen's and Snyder drug stores are better ,then any other drug stores.
I have talked to friends of mine and they agree with my diagnosis..
They cut opioids drugs in most all generic medications by as much as 40%..And if you believe the F.D.A or other government regulaters, I have some swomp land for sale..
Its a shame that because the U.S army entered a war in Afghanistan, the opioid capital of the world, our corrupted U.S media starts a propaganda machine against opioid pain pills to make them look better (Corporate ass sniffers)in the public eye.While people suffering badly, dying of terminal diseases, and severe injuries, struggle to get pain relief, responsibly.
