|Is there a difference between Endocet® and ratio-Oxycocet?|
According to Health Canada, Endocet® and ratio-Oxycocet are considered bioequivalent to the brand name product, Percocet®. This means they're available in the same dosage form, with the same amount of active ingredients, and produce the same effects in the body. What this means for you is that you can change from one product to another and still experience the same effects from the medication.
All medications have both common (generic) and brand names. The brand name is what a specific manufacturer calls the product (e.g., Tylenol®). The common name is the medical name for the medication (e.g., acetaminophen). A medication may have many brand names, but only one common name. This article lists medications by their common names. For information on a given medication, check our Drug Information database. For more information on brand names, speak with your doctor or pharmacist.
