I was put on oxycodone/APAP recently. Before I went to get my oxycodone/APAP Rx filled, I did some research to see if there really was a difference in the different brands of generic oxycodone. From what I read, there is apparently a difference, and in some cases a big difference, in the effectiveness of the various generics. Endocet, which is the generic of the brand Percocet; both are made by Endo. Essentially Endocet is Percocet as both are made by the same company but under different brand names. Endocet is very good and effective generic brand of oxycodone/APAP. Also Watson brand of generic oxycodone/APAP is very good too. From my research then, the best bets for filling an Rx for oxycodone/APAP were either Endo or Watson generic brand of oxycodone. Also did you know that you can call a pharmacy and ask what generic brand of med they sell as well as the price for the number of pills you have in the Rx..
When I called the pharmacy, they always told me the particular brand of generic drug they sell, for the medicine I had a prescription for and they told me the price as well for the number of pills in my Rx. So you can shop over the phone, that is, by calling one to several pharmacies, if you want, in order to get information on the brand of generic and the price of the med in your Rx. You can then decide on the best pharmacy to take your Rx into in order to get it filled.
