why do the pill markings and bottle indicate a different drug
Post a Reply
Why does my friend's pill bottle say 10 mg oxycontin, but when she looks up the markings M squared one side and 05/52 on the other side, it comes up on pill registries that it's 5 mg oxycodone? We are so confused. It's small white and round.

I found a single round red pill labeled "L3", and can't find any details online about what pill this may be. It is slightly larger than a pill of OxyContin or oxymorphone.

Oxycontin damaged my teeth
752 Replies RSS
Has anyone else known oxycontin to rot the teeth? I used to be on vicodin until my doctor told me I needed to switch to a morphine based meds. She put me on ms contin but I had problems with it so she put me on 80mg oxycontin. Eventually my body built up a tolerance so she kept raising it, i have am now on from 4-6 per day of the 80mg tabs. It scares me that this is what rotted my teeth because only 5 yrs ago i had only 2 cavities that needed filling and then only 1 yr after going on the oxycontin i had to have all my top front teeth pulled as they where rotting from the inside out the dentist said my mouth looked like a heroin addict's mouth looks. He said it was shocking to him that normally he only saw such damage from someone who abused drugs with so much dental damage, but i ha...

What is the difference between hydrocodone and oxycontin???
3 Replies RSS
I have been taking hydrocodone 10-325 for 8 or 9 years. And now my doctor wants to put me on oxycontin. I have never taken any before and he did not say what strength. What are the dosages??? Is it any better than the hydrocodone 10-325??? ## Hello, Tazman57! How are you? Oxycontin is a time released formulation of Oxycodone, the medication is slowly released over a 12 hour period. It is stronger than Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of Oxycodone to equal each 10mgs of Hydrocodone. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. It's available in varying doses starting at 10mgs and going all the way up to 160mgs. Is there anything e...

ARE THERE ANY DANGERS IN SNORTING THE NEW OXYCONTIN 80 MG OTHER THAN GETTING TOO MUCH AT ONCE. ## There are always dangers to snorting tablets, especially the time released ones. They contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body, they are usually just expelled in your waste. When you crush a tablet and snort it, you are putting it into your body, in a manner in which it can no longer dispose of those substances. This creates that danger of blockages. These new Oxycontin OP tablets are especially problematic, because they are specially designed to help prevent abuse, even if someone tries to crush them, they turn into a gummy substance that retains its time released properties. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Yes you can fuggin DIE right...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
633 Replies RSS
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

insurance company refusing to pay for oxycontin
5 Replies RSS
insurance company now won't pay for chronic pain meds. (oxycontin) noting all kinds of reasons which I answered. It started with pre authorization, then reduced dosage, (have had same dosage for four years). I have never misused or tried to get meds. early. I know this is an abused medication but I have to go to work every day and this allows me to do so. They say I have a right to appeal and have looked for legal help but nobody will take case. Any help would be appreciated. I can't afford $900.00 per month. ## Hello, Josh! How are you? I am sorry about the problems you're having, that's horrible. As to the legal help, when the insurance company says you have the right to appeal, that is an internal process that you handle with them, they will tell you what information ...

OxyContin instant release?
Post a Reply
Given OxyContin Extended Release 40mg per 12 hours in place of Methadone 10mg four times daily. Always given for pain by MD, 20 years now. Initial dose 20 yrs ago was 200 mg daily, got myself down to 120 mg daily, then down to 40mg (all of these in four doses, that took 3 years). I've been on OxyContin ER for one month along with Vicodin for breakthrough and Tramadol. Nothing really works. Can't sleep, eat or care for myself. The reason I'm off Methadone is because insurance said I would need to pay for it and I can't. Back with my parents and they are lost in this situation. On OxyContin I get relief for about 4 hours (after it takes close to an hour to start relief). They are the worst. I just want Methadone back but it has ruined and ruled my life. No marriage, no chi...

It seems like you're mistaking the pill being described here, because there are Oxycodone 15mgs which also have M 15 as the imprint ... HOWEVER ... the pills are a very very light green (almost white), the M is by itself in a box on one side, and the 15 is above a score mark on the other. Based on the original descriptions from the original po...

Can Teeth Rot Because Of Oxycontin Use
23 Replies RSS
ive been on these for about 7 years and was just asking coz my teeth are slowly getting worse also on oxynorm amitriptoline seratail co-codamol and have just started on fentanyl patches please help ## Your teeth can be affected by many medications, especially narcotics. The problem is caused due to the fact that they tend to sap the minerals from your body, plus they cause dry mouth, which allows more bacteria to sit on your teeth. From the medications you are taking, all of the narcotics, the Oxycontin, Co-Codamol, Oxynorm and the Fentanyl can cause a loss of calcium, as well as dry mouth. And the Amitryptiline can also cause dry mouth as a side effect. Many people on long-term narcotic pain management end up with severe dental issues and a lot have lost all their teeth and required de...

I'm prescribed OxyContin and took some Tramadol and I tested positive for Hydrocodone. Why? ## I take 2 7.5/325 mg of hydrocodone and 3 100mg tramadols daily both prescribed by my dr. I went in for my drug tests confident because I don't do anything else. Dr.s office called me and said that they can no longer see me because I tested positive for morphine and oxycodone, is that even possible?! I am to see Monday so I can poke her with my whys and how's? I know it was a 16 panel test and therefore non specific to the drugs prescribed. Can tramadol and hydrocdone show false positives for morphine and Oxycodone? ## I HAD similar thing happen once. Dr told me that it could metabolize into vicodin in, my liver, I believe they said. Have them do a gas chromatography test. I see a p...

Hi all. I have intractable pelvic RSD, peripheral neuropathy, lumbar facet spondylosis. I live in California and am about to have to change insurances at the end of this month. The new insurance has ridiculously high Rx prices. I go to a PM for all my pain meds, but my primary dr has in the past managed them for me. My question is if anyone knows if I get an Rx for the 60mg Oxycontin twice a day like usual from my PM and then my primary to write a script for 40mg 3 times a day and then I can go to 2 totally different pharmacies and fill one with my insurance and the other at another pharmacy and pay with cash, will that flag the DEA and cause my PM to get a notification of "Doctor shopping"? I am just trying to have enough meds to get me through an extra month until my husbands ...

Oxycontin And Oxycodone Urine Drug Test
162 Replies RSS
When taking a urine drug test, does oxycontin and oxycodone come up as the same drug? I took a 40mg oxycontin on a monday and was drug tested on thurs. I am tested once a month from my pain mangement dr. to make sure my oxycodone's are in my system. So will the 2 drugs show up as one or is there a differance in them with the drug test? ## No, there is not difference between them for a drug test, Oxycocodone is the active ingredient in both, so they will show up as the same thing. However, what you may run into is having a different level of it in your body than what they would expect if you were taking the exact amount prescribed. Some of the pain management clinics use tests that show the level in your body, so they can tell if someone is not taking their medications, at all, or if...

abuse Oxycontin
3 Replies RSS
Why do so many people want to abuse OxyContin leaving those of us who actually prescribed it for pain on the edge? ## I KNOW ITS SO UNFAIR PEOPLE THAT ABUSE OXYICOTIN MAKE IT HARD FOR PEOPLE THAT HONESTLY NEED IT FOR CHRONIC PAIN. I HAVE TAKEN 4 80MG OXYS FOR 10 YEARS AND MY DOC LOST HIS LICENSE & I NEED DOCTOR WILLING 2 TREAT MY PAIN WITH IT IN MONTGOMERY OR BIRMINGHAM AREA. ## Sorry to point this out but stefanie, your approach to pain management is largely a reason for this. I am sure you are a chronic pain sufferer but the problem is that now you are looking for a doctor to specifically prescribe this drug to you - you came into this thread and instead of answering Thomas' question you posted how you are looking for a doctor for this drug. Thomas, as you can see, this medica...

Accidentally took a double dose of oxycontin 20mg. Help?
2 Replies RSS
I have never been on oxycontin before but just recently got prescribed 20mg of it. I have taken dilaudid, morphine, and oxycodone pills before though. I accidentally took two oxycontins within 2 hours of eachother as my anxiety medication is small and the same color. Should i be ok or go to an emergency room? ## Hi Winter, I noticed that you had posted this back on 3/27/2017. Today is now 6/29/2017. How are you feeling? Did you ever sense the need to go to the emergency room or contact your doctor? My suspicion is that you probably would have turned out fine when the effects wore off (given your previous exposure to opiates of similar strength), but had this been me, I may have opted to call poison control [1-800-222-1222] and/or like you said, visit the ER... I'm under the impressi...
