Generic. Vs Brand For Percocet


I have been on Percocet 10/325 for over 11 years. Recently changed insurance company. They will not pay for Brand. I get horrible nausea and cramping and questionable results from generic . What are fillers in best generic replacements. It is the fillers my Drs. say I am allergic to. Not the fillers in Percocet brand

It sounds like you may need to use a compound pharmacy then. I believe Walgreen's has some.

Thanks for response. If Insurance wïll not pay for brand then I doubt they will pay for a special compound pharmacy . My pharmacy is a compounding pharmacy. the cost for me to pay for this on my own is totally cost prohibitive.

Greg, If your Doctor writes medically necessary on your prescription, your insurance has to cover brand name by law. Please ask your Doctor to do this. Best of luck to you! :)

Greg, I just wanted to add a few details in response your question about fillers that are found in generic replacements for Percocet.

My findings indicate that generic oxycodone + acetaminophen (10/325) with a National Drug Code of 63629-3953-6 contains the following set of inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide + croscarmellose sodium + crospovidone + microcrystalline cellulose + povidone + pregelatinized corn starch + stearic acid

I wish there was an easy method for pin pointing which inactive ingredient could be affecting the efficacy of the medication, but it may be best to follow the advice in Post #3 just to be sure that you receive what you know already works.

Hope this helps!
