Generic percocet vs brand name

Common Questions and Answers about Generic percocet vs brand name


Avatar n tn Oxycodone is the narcotic in both of your scripts. The former, "Oxycodone" is not the generic name of the drug.....but the drug itself. Endocet is the generic name, and has oxycodone in it as well. Oh yes, also your first Rx had 5mgs of oxycodone, whereas your last one had 7.5mgs.
Avatar f tn actually it is oxycodone that is the main ingredient... oxycontin is a brand name, means oxycodone continuous release (i think). oxycontin is usually higer mg of the oxycodone because it has the extended release which is why addicts usually crush & snort or chew them to bypass that. it is true that percocet has more apap than the oxycontin or roxicodone but as far as the main ingredient 6 perc 5's are the same as a roxi 30 or 4 perc 10's are the same as an oxy 40.
Avatar f tn ive been on percocet for 10ys from 5 open heart surgeries is brand name better than generic
Avatar m tn At these levels percocet is definitly the stronger drug. Norco a brand of hydrocodone that comes in 10mg pills, and is there for equivalent to 2 normal hydro pills. People get confused and think it is stronger because they are taking two pills in one.
Avatar n tn I assume that means 5mg of oxycodone but im not totaly sure and is there such thing as sustained release percocet if so im going to take those back.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have an idea,as to how strong any strength Opana(brand name) is to Oxycodone? My new PM Dr. wants me to get down from 40mg of Methadone to about 20mg,in only one weeks time,before he starts precribing me Opana. I've already had been taking huge amounts of 15mg Oxycodone a day,for 5 years also,along with the Methadone. I tried to explain to him,just how tolerant,I had become to the Oxy,but I think it fell on def ears.
Avatar f tn (coach vs knock off coach purses) as opposed to the generic or knock off. In any case wether its name brand or generic the chemical compositions are the same and work exactly the same and as we all know generic is cheaper!Hope that helps!
Avatar f tn Percocet is the brand name of the generic drug oxycodone and acetaminophen and Vicodin is a brand name of the generic drug Hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Both oxycodone and Hydrocodone is a narcotic drug and are often used in combination with acetaminophen or APAP, a no steroidal anti inflammatory drug which helps in increasing their potency.
216878 tn?1196041120 Buprenorphine is a generic name for a chemical compound and is short for Buprenorphine Hydrochloride and is a semi-synthetic opioid. Suboxone and Subutex are brand names of Buprenorphine-based medications. Suboxone contains 4 parts Buprenorphine and 1 part naloxone. Subutex only contains Buprenorphine as an active ingredient. Most physicians prefer Suboxone because it is less likely to be misused due to presence of the naloxone.
Avatar m tn The upset tummy(diarrhea basically)will diminish after about 2 weeks of the med a probiotic yogurt will help with the symptoms it is a very common side effect of the med. Karajo-theres no new form many believe the name brand vs generic offers fewer side effects and better relief.I have noticed no difference.
175688 tn?1297560247 oxycontin is the brand name, oxycodone is the generic...percocet is oxycodone WITH acetaminophen...oxycontin is oxycodone WITHOUT acetaminophen...oxycontin comes in extended release and immediate release...I've been an RN for 13 years and I take oxycodone on a daily basis for crohn's disease...
Avatar n tn Anyway just wanted to know if this is normal and just name brand vs generic and if so is there any difference in strenth any info would be helpfull thanks mikey>
Avatar n tn You might want to try the brand name...I've found for me I do not get a happy feeling from brand name Norco like I do with the generic. HOWEVER Trust ME-I went from 6-8/day to a number I'm too ashamed to admit to anyone but myself and God (and I'm talking NORCO not Vike which has 10 MG of codeine vs 5). Like you, I thought I was in wrote that your situation isn't as bad or serious as the people on this board. Do you think we started off taking 30 a day???
Avatar f tn tramadol BRAND NAME: Ultram DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Tramadol is a man-made (synthetic) analgesic (pain reliever). Its exact mechanism of action is unknown but similar morphine. Like morphine, tramadol binds to receptors in the brain (opioid receptors) that are important for transmitting the sensation of pain from throughout the body to.
910419 tn?1289487327 I know that she has things to say about the brand name vs. the generic (the glue and the size of the patch can be different sometimes). Also, sometimes I found out that she didn't know about but I recently told her, did you know that it comes as a lollipop too? I thought that was kind of neat. But, the patch is the version of it that lasts for days, the lollipop version doesn't do that.
688620 tn?1227381884 If the patch is not effective, you can also try the Fentanyl lollipops, generic name is Actiq. The medication is absorbed very quickly through your mucosal membranes in your mouth. It works great for breakthru pain. But it is VERY powerful and you have to give yourself time to get used to side effects. Also, this may seem like a no-brainer, but I keep mine locked up in a safe as it is would be very dangerous if a child, or anyone not used to opiates, were to get ahold of them.
Avatar m tn Hi, i've been looking for the research study but so far its hiding from me, i'll come across it just cant seem to get my hands on it at the mo, i found this though.... Corticosteroids for multiple sclerosis Examples Generic Name Brand Name dexamethasone methylprednisolone Depo-Medrol, Solu-Medrol prednisone How It Works Methylprednisolone, prednisone, and dexamethasone are corticosteroids.
Avatar n tn The medication is buprenorphine (brand name Buprenex). In the US it is only available in injection form. It is great for detoxing off other narcotics without withdrawal. It is also very good for pain. If you want to know more, post again.
Avatar n tn I think it says Endo and 502 or something like that. Dupont doesn't make them anymore. I know when I was doing the percs that I liked the name brand, of course. I also like roxicet and roxilox (roxane's tylox). They seemed no less potent. Endocets sucked, in my opinion. They did seem weaker.
Avatar n tn It is called Contugesic and Codicontin (I'm not sure which is generic and which is brand). I have used both and I think that Codicontin (Dihydrocodeine Tartarate) is more evvective than Oxycontin. It is available through certain off-shore pharmacies. Not being sure of the rules of this BB, I will not mention names. Just a thought.
522415 tn?1242941355 How do I ask a doctor to put me on something like Percocet or Oxycodone? Or just anything that will be wotrth taking?? This Lortab is USELESS!! But I've been told if you ask for something specific they think you are just there to get pills for the wrong reason. HAS ANYONE ASKED THEIR DOCTOR FOR SOMETHING STRONGER, AND HOW DID YOU GO ABOUT IT???? By the way thanks in advance for any ideas, thoughts, suggestions or sharing.
Avatar f tn For example mine is $10 for generic, $20 for formulary brand, and $30 for non-formulary brand. So it really depends on your insurance. Now on another note, my thyroid med, I pay out of pocket because its part of the $4 prescription deal. But my pharmacy will usually charge the one that is cheaper. Some pharmacies might try to milk more money out of you, but I've never been to one that did this.
Avatar f tn And I remember drugs like Percocet/Darvon that made me vomit, and other narcotics that made me sleep for days.
Avatar n tn I am taking a low dose of Percocet 5-325 3x's a day, for chronic back and neck pain from a MVA. The problem is that even though I take it the way I should, I have had 2 negative drug screens. What can cause this. Please help.
Avatar n tn For example, I always here people talking about hydrocodone as if it were something that cannot compare to anything else. Well, that is the generic name for Vicodin, and better yet the same generic for Lortab, Lorcet, Norco, Zydone, Margesic H, Anexsia, Hydrocet, Bancap HC, Duocet, Panacet, Stagesic, and many more! Oxycontin, better known as Roxicodone or Percolone contains oxycodone hydrochloride, whereas the others metioned above contain acetaminophen and hydrocodone.
