Generic Tylox

There is only one strength available for generic Tylox -- 5/500 mg capsules (which contain 5 mg of oxycodone and 500 mg of acetaminophen). Various drug companies manufacture these products, including Watson Pharmaceuticals and Roxane Laboratories, Inc. Many pharmacies do not stock brand-name Tylox because generic Tylox is significantly less expensive, and many insurance companies require people to use generic products.

Can I Get "Real" Tylox?

Many pharmacies do not stock brand-name Tylox because generic Tylox is significantly less expensive (and many insurance companies require people to use the generic products). If you are willing to pay full price if your insurance will not cover brand-name Tylox, your pharmacy may be willing to carry brand-name Tylox for you.
 
However, many healthcare providers view requests for brand-name narcotics as a sign of abuse or diversion (selling the drugs to someone else) because brand-name narcotics usually have a higher street value than their generic versions. In almost all situations, a request for a brand-name narcotic instead of a generic may arouse your healthcare provider's suspicions.
