    Today I went to my Pharm to renew my script of Oxycodone 10/325 mg. I was told by the pharm ( Wallgreens ) that they do not have any in stock and have back orders from the comp that supplies them with it and will not be recieving it till after Jan 1st of 2013.
    They suggested I check another well known (CVS ) pharm and I was told the same.
    I asked them what are people who take this regularly suppose to do and was told "We don't know" and "Sorry you have to go thru this".
    My question is this... Is there anything anyone might know of that can be subsituted for this or would they know if Perocet which I understand to be the un-generic for oxycodone if that could be ordered instead?
    I am going to contact my Dr regardless but I wanted to pose this quest online in case anyone is going thru this right now like me.
    I have enough pills for only a couple of days and I dont want to go thru the W/D like i did the last time I forgot to reorder.
    Thank you Rob

      Hydrocodone should work until you get the Percocet. They both work with the same brain receptors is my understanding.

        You might check with the pharmacy to see what other doses they have in stock. I have had this problem personally and so have my patients. Sometimes we rewrite the script for 5's. The key is to protect your liver and not take too many based on the tylenol factor. Check with your pharmacy and your doctor.

          I go back and forth between Oxycodone and Endocet 10/325. I think the 325 indicates Tylenol so dont use the Endos that often

          Generic Name: oxycodone and acetaminophen.

          Check with pharmacy. Good luck! My doc prescribes me enough per mo. that I have at least a four week stash.

          BUT, keep this in mind; Percocet 10/325 (acetaminophen and oxycodone)?

          Do not use this medication - Endocet/325 - if you are allergic to acetaminophen (Tylenol) or oxycodone.
