224 imprint, round, light blue, supposed to be oxycodone 30mg

The drugest said it came from Sun Drugs/ Caraco pharmaceutical
Laboratories. I couldn't ID the tablet elsewhere. Has anyone
seen this before?

A related discussion thread states that it is in fact Oxycodone 30 mg. There was some debate as to the exact dosage, but the overall reports seem to agree that it's the 30 mg Oxy. Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do...

The Larger blue tablets with 224 on one-side and NOTHING on the other is-OXYCODONE, 30MG, Dist/Mfd by Caraco...SUN Pharmaceuticals [1].
BTW-I took these for 5 days now AND I SUSPECT THEY HAVE NO ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN THEM AS THEY DO-NOT-WORK....AT ALL.(no, its NOT tolerance)
Please respond if you have had a similar experience ANDhad it resolved. I am STUCK WITH 200 OF THESE TABLETS AND THE PHARMACY WILL "not take-back ANY medication ONCE it leaves the store......HELP!~

In regards to the issue being debated regarding the light blue tablets with the "224" imprint, they are purportedly generic 30 mg. immediate release oxycodone tablets made by Caraco Pharmeceuticals. I have been given this generic formulation by my pharmacist for the last three monthly prescriptions, and agree that they do not seem to have a similar amount of active ingredient in them. Indeed, my opinion is that it takes at least three of these tablets to equal a 30 mg manufactured elsewhere. We ALL need to complain ti the FDA.

UPDATE: My complaint to the FDA got a "case number"
What I, or ANYONE else, can do is request a "adverse incident report"-Beware, this report ONLY lists problems with THE FORMULATION (or Drug), NOT THE SPECIFIC MANUFACTURER.
I agree to the above comment: Complain to your Pharmacist, Physician AND to the FDA, in ADDITION-CONTACT CARACO Pharma,(In MI).
A complaint DIRECTLY to the Mfr. will get you a form letter, but you will have notified them of something vital.
These 30mg Oxycodone HCL preparation 30mg tabs, ARE INNEFFECTIVE!~ They are-embossed with "224" obverse and a scored-line, reverse.The light blue tablets are VISIBLY MUCH LARGER than any other generic brand.
Good luck to all.Bottom line for me-I was S.O.L. as no one is allowed to take a return on any CII medication.
PEACE

I am a pharmacy technician. Yes, the 224's are a generic version of the oxycodone 30mg tablets. They are just larger in size than the other ones. So if thats the medication you needed, you got the right product.

Those tablets you described are made in NJ by Sun Pharma for Caraco pharma...I had UNTOLD TROUBLE with these particular tablets as they DID NOTHING for my pain.

You'll notice they are 3 to 5 times the size...Why?-Because there is MORE filler in them than in other mfr's products. I had to file a report with the FDA-(adverse reaction report). It didn't do anything but my pharmacist would NEVER Take them back-My BEST advice is to contact your Dr. at once!! explain the issue/problem and FORFEIT THOSE TABS TO HIM/HER-If you do that, he can LEGALLY write you a replacement RX-If you have insurance-you'll have to contact them too.GOOD luck

On a related note, you can identify these, or any other tablets/pills/capsules at drugs.com and look for "Pill Finder"-enter your info and thereya go!~I use this regularly-It's a great thing

maybe you could get the phone numberof the drug company that makes the Oxycodone from the pharmacy and call the drug company or get the phone number of the drug company off of the internet by searching for the drug company by name. Call the company and tell them your dilima and see if they wont reimburse you for the 200 pills you have left. Afterall its not like a drug company cant afford to give someone a refund if their drug is ineffective. Hope you get something to work out for you. Sincerely Andrea

@Andrea and everyone else. As a former medical professional, I have exhausted all avenues of recourse. I ended up taking them anyway, despite the fact they did not work..I was tempted to send 3 tablets and $125- to a labaratory for a quantitative analyses of the tablets, but on Disbility, it was just a thought.
I have NO idea if these are still even being made-as the friendlky DEA has LIMITED the number of companies ALLOWED to make Oxycodone hcl

Yes, I had a similiar experience and thought I was going thru withdrawal before deciding thatsome percentage of thier 30mg Oxy's do not have any Oxy (as opposed to all pils have ex. 10% less active ingredient. My back problems for decades give me insight into opoids.
My pharmacy will allow these phonies to be returned. I have also sought out analytical labs for sonfirmation of my hypothesis. Unfortunately, this will cost between $500 and $1500....would love to get this done and then sue the hell out of Caraco....expensive....but may do it anyway and then sue Caraco....considering....will contact counsel and see if they will pay for the analysis as a cost of filing a suit.

Caraco is a very dirty company. They get the right amount of opium to make the pain pills yet put very little opium in the pills. They are probably selling it to other dirty companies for big profit and then making more profit off of these weak pills. I will not buy from this manufacturer again but I also won't shut up until Caraco is shut down.
