General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

BAD SYMPTOMS FROM ACTAVIS GENERIC PERCOCET
Been on Percocet for decades with chronic severe pain; was doing well until last month when I was given Actavis' A333 10-325's - took it a few days and noticed I was not getting the pain relief I've always had with the Watson and also started feeling very sick internally. Was shocked to see when I Googled if there were any people having the same problem as me and there was literally hundreds - people with the same complaints.
I did some research, called Actavis and also called the FDA to report my complaints with this new formula. They were responsive. I did a verbal complaint as well as online which I am hoping enough people will do the same because I don't have many options to manage my pain and don't want to "change" the levels again. The Watson worked very well and I am a long-term pain patient who knows what works for me. Going to my doctor today to see what we can do right now.
SUGGEST ANYONE AFFECTED CONTACT THE FDA: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/ReportaProblem/ConsumerComplaintCoordinators/default.htm
There's also a list of phone numbers for each State so you can call.
That's our only power to be able to the medicines each and every one of us suffering should be able to get without horrible side effects let alone ineffective pain relief.

I also emailed Actavis to "put them on notice" I will make it know their product is garbage and as it keeps making people ill, they will eventually be involved in a multitude of public complaints as well. Good luck to everyone.

I have had to take Percocet for several years by Watson, several months ago when I took a new prescription I was flown for a loop, wondered what was happening to me, then saw the new RX was by a different drug company. Can the people who are making the drugs that are supposed to help us be trusted??

I too got VIOLENTLY ill after taking Actavis. They apparently changed the fillers/binders and I guess its tough luck. Now I am allergic to Endocet AND Actavis. So far, Amneal is all I can take. Percocet, with insurance, brand necessary is $1,200.00.

The Actavis a333 does not work!!!!
I have been taking watson 932 for 3 years and never had a single issue.

The 2 months ago...I was given Actavis 932. It worked just like wstoson 932.
The next month...I was given Actavis a333...it didn't work at all.

Its not the brand...its the FORMULATION.
I called Actavis and filed a complaint. They agreed but said they couldn't swap them for me...I hope they start supplying the 932 formula..a lot of people have been affected.

I suffered a very serious "sensitivity " as they called it ... I called the manufactor direct and they took the lot off the shelf at my pharmacy ... Throwing up, dizzy immediately after taking it.
I returned it immediately to my pharmacy!! Emailed the company!!! They tried to tell me different stories and were more concerned I believe that in was going to sue them! In fact I needed the proper medication subscribed and questioned their binders etc, my two nephews both pharmacists said it wasn't

I have not stopped emailing Actavis, spoken on the phone with the, copied and emailed our similar complaints to them - no coincidence soooo many people have the same complaints and symptoms from the Actavis percocet and we are all being left with very little choices until we keep complaining by phone/email and to the FDA - lawsuits can be started, class actions, etc If enough people do this it will provide enough DATA that they cannot ignore in time. So keep on Actavis, call the medical depar

I filed a complaint to the FDA and posted what is happening to other websites. I have noticed that a lot of people have been suffering terrible side effects from what some are now calling poison Percocet.
Most people were having great success with the Watson formulation, but from what I was told, Actavis bought out Watson and discontinued the Watson formulation.
The Atctavis A333's, and some other Oxycodone drugs, were reformulated with a drug deterrent added to it to stop the drug abusers fr

I also was normally taking the Watson brand for about 3 months for a severe kidney problem and when I went to fill my script last month I got the brand activis. I took one pill and my heart started racing, I got pain in my chest and down my left arm and seriously thought I was having a heart attack. This drug needs to be taken off the market!!! Activis is going to kill someone with the fillers they put in this medication! I've also read post from people who have gotten medication poisoning from

has anyone been able to find the watson percocet? I heard that CVS may carry it still don't know that for sure. These actavis are REALLY BAD. We have to get them recalled off the shelves. So many people are sick and so many have even had to go to the ER with heart attack like symptoms. It doesn't have any pain reliever in it - they just loaded it up with caffiene it is a sugar pill.

I always used the watson generic percocet from Walgreen n they were the only ones that helped me. I just got my script filled a week ago and they gave me the actavis and I hate it. Whenever u change from one manufacturer to another, even if its the same med, ur body feels the difference! I looked on the watson pharmaceutical website and it says they were taken over by activist but still showed the watson pill on its site. I too need to find out if there is another pharmacy that receives th
