Hey again everybody, hope everyone is doing ok. My message today is about the different generic's and their effectiveness. I am on 10mg oxyIR 4 times per day or as needed when in severe pain. I am always prescribed generics. I am usually prescribed Ethex but was prescribed Mallinkrofdt this latest refill. I am not sure if these are as effective as the ethex, I took 10mg and was still in pain so took another which helped.
Im sure they are probably the same, a couple reasons for this could be my tolerance, and the fact I went about a day and a half with no oxycodone which caused a bad pain flair up that may have needed more of the medicine to get control of the pain. I am also on Cymbalta(60mg per day) and Lyrica(300mg) per day but have not noticed much relief from those, it seems the traditional pain killer is the only thing that gives me relief.
I am wondering peoples experiences with different generics as maybe next time I can ask my pharmacist for a specific generic that may be more effective. Thanks everyone.
