I just got generic oxy by Mallinkrt Pharm for the first time and I actually took it into my doctor today because I told him for some reason it wasn't working all of a sudden.   He told me it was because my insurance company replaced my rx with the "generic"  version of oxy this time.  He said he's had similar complaints from other patients.  I thought it was just me.  Did you have problems as well?

I just got a refill and they did nothing to help, an asprin would would have done better

I've had the same experience- mallinkrt oxycontin is much less (?50%) effective than brand name. It's frustrating to receive a response from the MD that it is me, not the rx. A patient who has used a rx consistently for more than a year should be considered a reliable source. There should be a method for patients to report problems like this, so they can be identified and validated.

I have found that Mallinkrt works well for me.  Once when I tried some oxycodone from another manufacturer, it had a filler which made me sick.  Suggest you check to see who makes the one that works for you and insist on it each time--read the label.  If your druggist doesn't have it, call around.  It worked for me.  I had to throw out a whole prescription, but now I know what to look for.  Good luck.

I had the same problem. I was on 10/325 generic percocet, I was given the ones made by Mallinkrt. THEY DO NOT WORK, YOU ARE NOT CRAZY, FIND A PHARMACY THAT DISPENSES OTHER GENERICS, THERE ARE MANY OTHER COMPANIES THAT DO HAVE DECENT ONES. SHAME ON THIS COMPANY, THEY ARE LEAVING PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC PAIN, IN PAIN, SHAME, SHAME ON THEM.

Same here! These fake pills left me in agonizing in excoriating pain for more than a week before I realized THEY JUST DON'T WORK.  I then got a refill and insisted on genuine Vicodin and sure enough instant relief .  I'm thinking class maybe action lawsuit.

Mallinkrt Pharma sucks, no other way to put it. They use full advantage of the "30" rule, thus a 30 mg Oxy is unlikely to be even 25 mg of O. I think they were last or second to last on a list of the 6-7+/- generics out there.
