I'm thinking it could probably be due to having to go 4 days without them, so your body has to get use to them again...atleast that's what I'm thinking. Also it could be just in your mind (not saying your crazy or anything lol) but I know sometimes when we're use to something, and we try somethign diffrent, our minds trick us into thinking something is wrong with it. I think we all do something like this one time or the other...OR your body is just use to the old formulation....
But also...diffrent brands of medications can sometimes effect us diffrently...I know they have to have the same main ingredient, but they can put anything else in it, maybe it's dissolving more quickly then the other brand, or something is in it that your body doesnt like very well....either way, I would call your prescribing doctor, tell them what's going on, ask them if you can bring in the remaining pills for them to see and dispose of, and get a new prescript
ion. I know your insurance deal can be a pain, but generic percocets are not that much, so maybe you can pay out of pocket, or just call your insurance and see what they say, maybe it's something simple they just need to put into your file.
But if I where you, I wouldn't just sit back and accept it til your next refill, you are prescribed the medicaiton for your pain,and that's what it should do, and if it's causing some uncomfortable side effects, then you have all rights to get the other percocets back. I would think it wouldn't be a big deal to the doctor as long as you bring in the bottle of meds you have now to show them that you are not scamming more percocets out of them. I know with my pills, they dissolve under my tongue, and sometimes they'll either be VERY soft that they just crumble to crumbs in hte bottle, and sometimes they're as hard as a rock...I think depending on how old they are, what tempatures they've gone through all have a big factor in it, and when they're like that, I feel a diffrence in the way they work....
