    and no legitimate doctor would allow ANY patient to alter the medication prescribed in any FORM.
    We don't do those things or allow those discussions to occur here.
    All manufacturer's must meet federal standards when making generic medications, so the manufacturer's don't matter to most of us.

    Most pharmacies (from my experience of 15 years) won't give you that information by phone and if you ask in person, their response is always the same..." ALL generics are the same"! I'm in total agreement with you. I've had two surgeries on my lower back since 2001. One thing I've noticed, all yellow oxycodone, whether round, oblong, or oval, seem to work better for me. ( The round yellow ones work as good or maybe more than the Endocet)  It seems the white ones have more acetaminophen than the yellow ones possibly causing your upset stomach. THIS IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL OPINION! After putting up with everyday pain for 15 years, I feel like experience is the brightest star. My Dr also has me on 1 40mg oxymorphone every 12 hours so I've basically been through the ringer dealing with chronic pain. Good luck finding a pharmacist that will help you and don't let it discourage you if it takes a little extra effort. It also helps to bow your head and be thankful your situation is no worse than it is.
