Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
398 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...

reformulated oxycontin

i do not think the op version of oxycontin are working.they seem to go through me without digestion.i have literally seen them in the toilet up to 6 hours after ive taken them so im not getting relief from the pain. are the old version ones still made and provided to pharmecies? ## No, the old ones are no longer available. However, it is normal to find the tablet shell of these time released Oxycontin OP in your stool, later. However, it is just the shell, the medication is slowly released from it. As to the problem with them not working, there have been many complaints about this, as well. You can contact both Purdue Pharma and the FDA to let them know of your complaints, the more people that do so, the more attention they will pay to the problem.

oxycontin op and oc whats the differance
201 Replies RSS
i ve been tajin the oxycontin oc for years now. I want to know what exactly what are in the new oxycontin op. PLEASE HELP ## The new Oxycontin OP are replacing the original Oxycontin. They contain the same active ingredient Oxycodone, in a time released formulation. The only difference is that they have been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. Even if someone tries to crush or chew them, they retain their time released properties. Side effects are still the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Do you have any questions? ## Well I've been on this medicine for over 5 years now, and YES it has changed. I don't know how they are getting away with calling it the same thing? They are absolutely not, all in active ingredients have changed. Headaches, Nausea, St...

Does A Drug Test Show The Same Results If You Took Oxycontin Or Oxycodone
4 Replies RSS
If contin has codone in it dont they both show up the same in a drug test? or can the test tell the difference? ## Yes, both are Oxycodone and will be detected as the same substance on a drug test. Where a problem usually arises is if the test is one done by a pain clinic, or treating doctor, that also checks the levels of the drug in the person's body. In that case, if they take a different amount than what's prescribed, their levels may be off and can alert their doctor to that. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## does oxycodone and oxycontin show up the same on twelve panel drug test for pain management.par ## Only take the medication you are prescribed and only medicate as directed.

How to Break Down Oxycontin OP for Snorting
81 Replies RSS
I found out how. To break down the oxycontin op so that they can be snorted. Step 1: Step 7: Enjoy!! :) It may take a few tries, but once you get the general idea, you will find what works best for you. I've been doing it this way and now im pretty damn good at it and I've been able to get a nice high and a decent drip this way. I find that its much more convenient to do this to a bunch of pills at a time and then just store what you don't use right away in a little container for later so you don't have to do all this work everytime you do a pill. I really hope I was able to help all of you out. It may take a little trial and error at first before you get it perfect... so until you do, only use one pill at a time so you don't waste all of them if you make any mistake...

Call Purdue Pharma about new OXYCONTIN 80MG OP
144 Replies RSS
This is the number to Purdue when calling select Opt # 2 and explain the adverse reaction that you are having from the new reformulated Oxycontin. The number is 888-726-7535. If the new type is working for you then great. I and several people I spoke with said it gets stuck in your throat even with food. Plus it does not last 12 hour. I understand why they re-made it kids should not take it and as far as how people take it snort, inject or chew its their business. Nobody should tell another ADULT how to live his or her life. It sucks to live in pain it really does. Good Luck All ## The new Oxycontin OP has been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. However, there have been many complaints about it causing weird side effects or not working. To get someone to take notice of the prob...

Question about chewing Oxycontin
8 Replies RSS
My doctor switched me to Oxycontin 80MG from Oxycodone IR 30MG. What is the difference between the two? I read all these forums and many of them are about abusing them and I am not interested in doing that for fear of dying. So, what will happen if I chew them? I would like the best way to make my pain go away but I would not mind the euphoria/Hi from them but I am not wiling to snort or inject. Can someone tell me the difference between these pills and if anyone has chewed these pills and what is the effects of doing so. ## The one that you were receiving with the IR designation were instant release Oxycodone, but the Oxycontin is a time released formulation, meant to slowly release the medication over a 12 hour period. And with the new formulation with the OP marking, chewing them wil...

Never had a problem getting my monthly prescription for 20mg OxyContin filled at Walgreens.

oxycontin 12 hour time release 2x day
Post a Reply
My tolerance is of course increasing to this prescription and I can not get a new stronger does from my Doctor as this med facility has strong rules against it. So since this does wears off after 6 - 8 hours can't I basically just increase to 3X/day by taking it every 8 hours instead? Here's a strange twist to my story: My Dr. said no to an increase in dosage and referred me to an outside pain specialist for my pain meds BUT! I also noticed that for the last two months my monthly prescription labeled for 60 tabs actually has about a weeks worth of extra oxy's. I know I'm not missing any doses. Any opinions?

How Long Does Oxycontin Stay In Your System
2 Replies RSS
If I have been taking oxycontin everyday for about a month, how long will it take to get out of my system? I have a drug test next Friday afternoon, and it's a ten panel test. What are the chances of it showing up if I stop taking them today? ## I go 5 days without and my urine tests clean. Now I'm in Canada so I dunno if the tests r different. I know people who go 3 days and come out clean but the longer the better I'd say 5-7 days to b safe. Good luck :) ## Does anyone have jerk like seizures while sleeping after a month of stopping zanax? I do and I don't know why, I'm perfectly healthy mentally,kinda scary

oxycontin op 80 how long do the effects of this tablet last? ## Since it cannot be broken down to get all the medication at once, there is no high to be had. It was things like this that it was designed to prevent. Side effects remain the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

tolerance to oxycotin
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking 20 mg oxycontin 2 x per day and 20 mg oxycodone 4 x per day for chronic migraines for the last 2 years and before that we tried norco's and butran's patches but the oxy works the best. Lately it seems that the oxycotin is not lasting the 12 hrs it should and I feel myself going through withdrawal about 8-9 hours after taking one oxycotin even with the oxycodone. Does my tolerance with these medications be why the oxycotin is not lasting the full 12 hours it should? I go to see my doctor in 2 days. I am going to be out of my oxycotin tomorrow and I am scared of the withdrawal as I feel like I want to crawl out of my skin and I start flopping like a fish. I work full time and can't afford to take time off. What suggestions do you have for increasing the oxyc...

Oxycontin OP Duration 40mg Cut in Half
8 Replies RSS
Given the protective qualities of the new Oxy OP, if you cut, say a 40mg tab in half, does it still release the drug slowly? I noticed there is no warning label on the bottle saying do not chew. In other words, given the new formulation, if cut in half does it still retain its slow release quality? ## Retaining their time release properties, even if someone tries to cut them in half, crush or chew them is exactly how they are supposed to work. However, it is still not recommended that you alter your dosage, without your doctor's approval. Oxycontin contains the very powerful narcotic Oxycodone. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Learn more: Are there any questions or comments? ## I have taken one 80mg oxycontin and 1/2 of an 80mg (I cut an ...
