Generic Percocet Look Vs The Real MedicationUpdated
The pill itself says IP 204. It seems to be percocet 7.5 when I try to find it. The issue is I had a tonsillectomy yesterday and the pain meds do not seem to be helping. I got to thinking what did the pharmacy give me? It was supposed to be percocet 10 and Tylenol 325. It is white and long, oval like. I am thinking about calling the pharmacy, but wanted to know if this was the right medication. Because with a 10 mg...It should be decreasing in my pain and it is not. What should I do?
IP 204 is a generic Percocet 10, manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals.
Having your tonsils removed, especially if you are older, can be quite painful. Hope you feel better soon.
As an additional note, not every medication works for everyone that tries it, either. Even if you've taken it before, it may not work for when it's prescribed another time, our bodies do change over time.
The best thing to do would be to inform your doctor, because you may need to switch to a different medication.
The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.
Is there anything else I can help with?
Hello, I did call my doctor and we seem to be playing phone tag. I am finding I'd I take two of these as it helps more than just one. This is extremely painful. I knew this going into it. I am also taking 600 mg of ibuprofen. I was just wondering why this was not working compared to other times I have had percocet which had not been in generic form. When I had an severe sinus infection. I know it is habit forming and honestly I get sick of that. I am not dependent on any of that, I am in pain from a surgery. I am so sick of fighting for pain relief when I need it and being made to feel like I am not in pain and should not be asking for relief. It is impossible to get pain management when you are truly in need. I just want some relief and to have a decent holiday. I am frustrated that it is so hard to get answers or help to keep my pain down.
It should be equivalent to original percocet correct? Why am I itching, when I never have had a reaction to this prior to this medication? The pharmacists indicated that they only do generic percocet. I thought that was odd. She said maybe the building blocks in it are causing a reaction.
