Percocet generic cost

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet generic cost


Avatar f tn I have been taking generic oxycodone although I was prescribed percocet because I do not want to pay 30 bucks instead of the 10 buck co-pay. I am finding that they are not working as well as when I had the actual percocet. Is there a reason for this? By the way, I am new to this forum but I have been reading it for awhile (lurking) but this is my first post.
Avatar n tn I have been on Percocet for 4 months for a herniated disk. I was taking half a day, then one a day, then up to 6 a day. Then I started having awful side effects. My back pain got worse, my tongue was swelling some, and had stomach pain too. Then I had my lumbar injection and the pain got worse. I am scared this is an allergic reaction. I had my lumbar steroid injection, and the pain got worse, so my Dr prescribed Tylenol 4.
Avatar n tn I had hernia surgery and was prescribed percocet 10mg.. It been 2 months and have stopped them but feeling really depressed and anxious. How long will this take to subside??? I usually half the 10mg and take half at a time. at most take 5 halfs a day..???
469720 tn?1388149949 What the pharmacist is not telling you is that those 100 generic pills may have only cost him $10! At the end of the report, one of the anchors asked Mr. Wilson whether, or not there were any pharmacies that did not adhere to this practice, and he said that Costco consistently charged little over their cost for the generic drugs. I went to the Costco site, where you can look up any drug, and get its online price. It says that the in-store prices are consistent with the online prices.
Avatar f tn But its thru my husband's work, we have medical insurance thru Aetna. I pay a co pay for my meds $15 for generic. Don't get the name brand cause it would cost me too much. Are you married? Does your wife work? Does she have any medical thru her job? I never know medicad didn't pay for the pain meds, my friend has it for disability it paid for her loratabs, and my grandmother had medicaid and humane and it paid for her percocet 10's.
Avatar n tn You can get darvon 65 D it is just a stronger dose and it cost more because it is not generic. This is how the drug companies get you. Hope this helps.
686769 tn?1236275731 I am on Endocort (steroid with a LOT less side effects than prednisone), Pentassa, Depression meds, Trammadol (pain), percocet (pain), azathioprine 75mg. Still, I am in pain almost daily. Every once in a while I have a good day. I am really having a hard time, mentally and physically. I have always been very active, early to rise and then go go go go... Now, I hate waking up because usually my pain is the most severe in the morning, which keeps me from being able to function.
Avatar f tn There are several strengths of generic Zofran available for sale, including Ondansetron 4 mg to 8 mg tablets. It also comes in several forms. I don't know the cost differance between generic and brand name but there should be a difference. With all newly patent expired meds the cost will eventually come down. Phenergan is actually an antihistamine and makes sense that it would not work as well as a drug made just to treat nausea and vomiting such as Zofran.
Avatar m tn But, It works so much better, more smoothly than percocet. No cloudy mind, no craving for percocet, can be called in, cost less (suppose to become generic soon if not allready), and , gets my pain level down to a managable level. If anyone can help me find an understanding Doc, that will actually see the whole picture and not only the fact that I have to take percocet 6 times a day. I am trying to go the right direction and the docs dont' seem to see it. What up with that??
1331804 tn?1336870958 My PCP gave me three referrals today and I told him that the current pain meds are working but I consistently have breakthrough pain 3 times a day requiring me to take percocet 3x a day along with the Morphine Sulfate ER. I told him that I was hoping to not have breakthrough pain EVERY single day. I also told him that part of the reason is due to the fact that the Morphine ER doesn't last 12 hours, but instead starts fizzling out after 6 hours and it is completely gone after 8 hours.
Avatar f tn pain, that radiates and is so horrible sometimes, even with percocet twice a day, and xanaflex, I cry. I am under the care of a orthopedic surgeon who has done NOTHING except keep prescribing the Percocet and tried serveral muscle relaxers. The ONLY time I have ever been completely easy is when I have gotten so bad, and my pain so out of control, that I was put in the hospital in Athens GA, by my pain specialist to do a medication re-assessment, and was put on IV dilaudid.
Avatar n tn The Oxycontin is very expensive and most insurance companies require prior authorization and just won't pay for it... b/c there is not a generic for it. The oxycodone immediate release tablets are fairly inexpensive compared to the Oxycontin. I paid $52 for 180 tablets when my insurance ran out... not bad, the Oxycontin would have been over $1800 for one 30 day supply.
221016 tn?1196977061 Alcohol alone is very hard to quit much less all the other stuff. Oxycodone is generic for Percocet. It's a very strong pain med. No, I'm just goin' to quit after I run out which should be the next few days. I think I can do it. I'm thinkin' about checkin' into N/A for more support. Does it cost anything? I can't afford anything. I don't have insurance either so I can't get the suboxone...
1331804 tn?1336870958 They have a generic in the 15 mg strength but not in the 10 mg strength so I need to price the 10 mg strength to see how much more it is going to cost me. The sixty 30 mg tablets cost me $242 on Friday as they don't have a generic in that strength yet...not until Jan 2013. I did receive a copay card that gives me $25 off on 12 refills but it is still a pricey med. The retail price is $670 for a 30 day supply and my insurance only pays 1/2 because it is a non-preferred brand name drug.
Avatar f tn My dr recently changed my pain medication for my lower back pain from percocet to morphine b/c he wanted me taking less tylenol, as it causes liver damage. I do NOT feel pain relief from the morphine. I'm taking twice what he prescribed me just to feel relief. I was NOT expecting this!!!
Avatar m tn I'm currently taking generic norco 10/325 4 times a day. Problem is my bottle last at best for 2 weeks. I have arthritis, a cyst in my spine as well as Schmorl's nodes. I generally need to take 2 - 3 norco in the morning just to get ot of bed with out severe pain. Another problems with the norco is it wears off really fast and I have to take more within a few hours. My bottle lasts me maybe 2 weeks at best.
1170366 tn?1263923079 ) Subutex is also available as a generic so you'll pay a fraction of the cost of a very expensive medication. Subs cost a lot. I've worked with sub users for a long time. My experience is that about 15% of suboxone users are adversely affected by the naloxone in the suboxone. It doesn't bother most people but if you're in that 15% group you'll notice almost immediately how much better you feel on the subutex.
Avatar n tn I weaned myself off of the Percocets (was up to 2 x 10mg, 4 x a day), but I'm still on a Fentanyl (Duragesic generic) 50 mcg/hr patch, and I take an Oxy 10 twice a day. I also take Klonopin .5 mg if I need it for anxiety, and I take Ambien CR to go to sleep, since my leg pain makes it hard to fall asleep (my fracture is still not healed and I'm still in treatment for it). I am noticing that I can no longer get through 3 days on the Fentanyl patch.
410748 tn?1202510935 I took a Oxycod/Apap 5-325MG (which is supposed to be generic for Percocet) and it dulled the pain enough I can tolerate it, but I still know it's there. This is the second time I have had to do that to keep from going to the emergency room for something stronger. No effect to the weird pupil reaction to light (no reaction) in that eye and diminished reaction in the left eye. No dizziness as of yet, but the pain has made me nautious.
Avatar f tn I was given Naproxen Sod, 550mg which is the generic for Anaprox DS. Not sure on exactly the names, just putting whats on the bottle. I take it at the first sign of the cramps even beginning and it still doesn't do much. I still get doubled over and am in severe pain. I do exercise regularly, drink milk, use heat pads, take extra vitamins. But I'm miserable. Every month I go through this "hell" as I call it.
Avatar n tn Mollyrae is correct. Some manufacturers will provide medications at no cost to you. I have to admit I am not sure if this applies to narcotics but it is worth a try. Any PCP can help you apply to the drug manufactures. I do not know a thing about Mississippi Medicaid. If does not seem legal, certainly not ethical that they would deny pain medications to needy patients. What about the cancer patients that are on Mississippi Medicaid? Are they too denied pain medications?
Avatar n tn He has never put me on fentanyl due to the cost. I take 10 mg of Percocet 4 times a day which barely does anything. Oxys were mentioned at one appointment but he says they're very expensive as well as there is no generic. I go next week and am asking for MS Contin which I have been on in the way past for severe endometriosis...gone, now, after my hysterectomy! I have tried Methadone last year, but he only gave me 15 mg. every 12 hours and I had break-through pain like crazy.
Avatar f tn I take 3 different pain medications, Vicodin; Tylenol IV and Percocet. I am used to taking a tox screen and find no problem with it. My last visit I took a urine test and a week later they had me come back in for a blood test. Come to find out they say the Percocet isn't showing up in my results. The urine test didn't surprise me because I hadn't taken any but I had taken a Percocet on Saturday morning and the blood test was Monday morning so I don't understand it.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure why Percocet wouldn't show on your Generic UA, since I've had a UA throw positive when I hadn't taken a percocet for three days. That's really bizarre. It's possible the lab tech just screwed up, since they're human and all, but I'm really sorry that your ex-doctor didn't think to re-test before dropping you as a client.
356518 tn?1322267242 I had to switch to the back percocet, but it does not work as well as the oxycodone. I'm so sensitive to all my medications. I know the percocet is not going to work out either for me. I'm almost to the limit of the tylenol content and the pain doc wants me to cut back on the percocet and increase the oxycontin. You may have to try something else. I hope you find something that works well for you. Good luck.
518798 tn?1295215879 It is not addicting at all...I have very bad migranes, and have tried every med they make and that is the only one for me...I also use the nose spray...Because most of the time i throw- up the pills...And at 30 dollars a pill, what a waster.... As i get older they get worst.....I hope you feel better, and know they caue no dependence or addiction!
725248 tn?1316165845 type brand, which is an generic, a 50mcg patch for the normal 72 hour change-over will cost you approx. $ 200. I think if cost is the factor that it is for us all, Dilaudid would be the least expensive, and hopefully have a better effect than the med's you are on. Oh, and YES, get yourself another Doctor, if this "new guy" dosn't work out. We should never EVER, feel that we have to fight someone, to get pain relief...
Avatar n tn they have 54/543 on them, could they be percocet (generic), drug fog during those days not remember, but hate 2 destroy them when my brother could use them for legite reason and he is not an addict. to bad i not have his same -type genes~~tks if you are a "PDR", lol ttyl take care, we are hanging in this together!!!
Avatar m tn Everything from Allergy Pills, to cough syrup, to percocet, to sniffing glue - can be addictive. Just because the research doesnt support it at this time, doesn't rule it out. By: HR_PuffnStuff It's not addictive BUT I will say that I heard from a neurologist that if you take it too often, it can definitely cause a "rebound" situation. He said your body knows you are going to take it.
307897 tn?1242422860 That's going to cost me over $200.00 for a 30 day supply. Can't do it. Business is down and this just sucks. Too bad there isn't a generic brand out for it. Oh, yeah, she wants me to do aquadic therapy. I think I'll buy a hot tub. Too far away from where I live for therapy and they close at the time I get off of work. What a mess.
