Ive noticed that taking a watson bran percoset 10/325 round tablet isn't the same pain relief as a different brand percoset which is an oval shape with 10/325 printed across on one side so us there really a difference?
I have found the same problem. No! all percocet 10/325 are legally
supposed to be the exact same formulation of oxycodone and
acetomenophine. I had been taking the percocet made by Mellinckrodt
for 5 years with good pain control. My pharmacy was out of stock and
could not get any for a week, so I had to go to another pharmacy. They
gave me the percocet made by Watson. I got only about 75% of the
pain relief that I had been getting. I checked the pills to be sure I was
given the correct dosage. I phone the pharmacist and told him my
problem. He said "lots of people complain that Watson's percocet is
just not as strong as others." He would not say if there was a difference
in the formulation or if it was a difference in body chemistry. So to
anyone who takes percocet consistenly, be certain that you stay with
the brand of generic that is most effective for you. I do not know if
any other pharmaceutical company puts out generic percocet, but I
am certainly going to find out. I will be staying with the one by
Mellinckrodt because it is more effective for me.
My opinion is the opposite. For 6.5 years I've been on 10-325 and 5-325 5 years before that. The Watson brand for me is by far the best and is def the most expensive,which is why my Pharm CVS had recently stopped carrying it and now only has Actavis brand. The last two months I've had headaches,fatigue and serious withdrawal symptoms From it not working. My pain is out of control. Over the years I found that the harder round flat pills work much better than the smaller oval,softer versions. These deff donot last near as long or as well. I've been calling rverywhere here and all the pharms within a hour from me have stopped carrying the Watson and that other patients have called complaining also. The Watson brand is a lot more expensive. $380-$500 for 150count 10-325 versus $30- $100 for 150 of the oval brands. I've also been told Amneal has bought out Watson so they will no longer be leading the market in generic meds.
