Today the pharmacy pulled another switch on the generic 10/325 Percocet first I got Endocet then Mallinckrodt now today I got Amneal never heard of this brand before. Has anybody tried these different brands before if so can you tell the difference? I know there are many different generic brands but also know some relieve pain better than others I believe it's quality control, so far I believe Endocet was the best for relief of pain Mallinckrodt was okay also, there are many more generic brands I never heard of. If you have tried different ones I would appreciate your input on which brand worked best for you. As you know medication is expensive and I do not like paying about the same price for a less quality brand when you can get a better brand for a few dollars more. Hoping to get and will value your input very much. Thank You, Frank M.
I take the same,I think the endocet works the best,I have also had watson brand, did not like those at all, they are a circle/round pill, the brand you now have I have never heard of but I think that the endocet and mallinckrodt are the best two,guess it all depends on the pharmacy,sorry, hope this helps you some..
There are many generic drugs made by Amneal and hundreds of other companies. They (the meds) must have the strength that is claimed on the label otherwise it is considered misbranded. The other ingredients, the diluent, binder, disintegrant and lubricant differ among generic manufacturers.These ingredients are part of the formulation along with the active ingredient(s) and are there to help the manufacturing process. The companies must validate their manufacturing process to ensure each batch is consistent.
Endocet is the best, Mallinckalrodt I believe is equally as good. Based on my experience do not get Amneal, they are a waste of money they absolutely did not work for me. Had the same comments from other people. I spoke to a few pharmacist it is ok for your Doctor to write specifically Endocet 10/325 or what ever strength you get, instead of writing Percocet that will assure you are getting the right MED.Don't waste your money on other generics. I don't know what State your from but I can get 100 Endocet 10/325 between $65.00 and $85.00 in Calif.
I have always taken the Watson brand, in hydrocodone 7.5, and 10mg, was switched to Norco, waste of money and did nothing for my pain. I have been on oxycodone 10/650mg (Watson) for about 5 years, last month the pharmacist informed me that oxycodone wasn't available anymore with 650mg of Tylenol, and gave me another brand yellow-round tablet with 230 on one side, and a weird looking c or some type of symbol, these are oxycodone 10/325mg and they haven't done anything for my pain relief, my pharmacist is checking into getting the Watson brand.
