abg 80 oxycotin

Are Oxycontin ABG 80 mg.still made? ## Hello, John! How are you? No, the only time released formulation of Oxycontin that is currently available are the name brand tablets manufactured by Purdue Pharma. Due to the increasing theft and diversion of this opiate, the generics were removed from the market several years ago, in order to enable the manufacturer, FDA and DEA to keep better track of the supply. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

How Long Does The Oxycontin 80mg op to work

how long does it take a oxycontin 80mg op to start working after you swallow it ## About 15 to 20 minutes, though it can vary some depending on your own body, as well as if you've recently eaten. Learn more Oxycodone details here. It is a time released formulation, so it won't have as much of an immediate effect as the regular or instant release, though. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a Rx for OxyContin which is a month old. Can I still have it filled? ## Prescriptions are usually able to be filled for up to one year from the date it was issued. ## After an hour it's fully kicked in for me. ## I take those but I find chewing them makes them come on faster. Also it works better for me. ## I'm asking this for a friend of mine who takes 30s 3 times a day....

Damaged receptors from chemo
Post a Reply
Long story short I had mega dose chemo (pen inj. & capsules) daily for 365 days. Almost killed me but afterwards when I took the pain med Oxycontin for the very 1st time I did not feel it till I reached unreal 500mg level. Then it was a miracle. Always felt chemo burned out receptors so only get partial dosage. How can I evaluate this? Anyone ever hear of this? In these times I need huge amounts to work for pain & drs not giving anymore. Need help desperately as the pain has bedridden me again. Chris-FL

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
101 Replies RSS
I have been in Pain management since 2004 in California and just Moved out there to muskogee Oklahoma... unfortunately there are NO doctors here willing to treat my pain i was on a regiment of 80mg Oxycontin 2X daily 10/325mg Norcos every 4 hours and 4mg IV dilaudid as needed for breakthrough pain... i am in search of a doctor out this way who is actualluy willing to perscribe these meds... thanks ## Well, the first question I have is, how are you checking with the doctors about getting help? The reason I am asking is because if you're calling various doctor's offices and asking if they'll treat you and prescribe specific medications, then you will pretty much always get told no. When someone does that, doctor's and their staff are taught to see it as drug seeking behavi...

iv been takeing oxycontin30mg with oc on them this time i got oxycontin30with op on them they seem to make me sick what is the differnce. ## Oxycontin OP is brand new to the market and is replacing the regular Oxycontin. The only difference is that the Oxycontin OP has been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. Even if someone tries to crush or chew it, it will retain its time released properties. Otherwise, it works the same and has the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. I am not certain why it would be making you sick, as compared to the other ones, have you tried contacting your doctor or pharmacist about it? ## the new pill u are now getting is a new formula of the old oc and is supposed to be tamper proof so people cant snort,shoot,smoke them a...

Oxycontin op 20 increased heart rate
Post a Reply
Just prescribed Oxycontin op 20 for the first time for chronic lower back pain from two bulging disks that are inflamming S1 and causing severe pain. I've been takng hydrocdone 10-325 for the past 5 years or so along with the injecions. I just took my first dose of Oxycontin op 20 and about 10 -15 minutes after ingesting my heart rate increased tremendously and was pounding through my chest. This lasted about 5 minutes then would return with less severity every 10-15 minutes later for about the next hour. Is this normal? Breathing was ok and I never felt I was going to pass out. Very scary after reading the warning pamplet that came with the script. It did help relieve the pain after the initial side effects but leary on taking anymore.

From two 80 mg. four times a day of Oxycontin to nothing
5 Replies RSS
My Doctor is afraid to prescribe pain pills even though she's been prescribing them to me for the last twelve years for Chronic Intractable Pain. I have been going through hell. She finally gave me two low dose MS Morphine tablets a day just to shut me up but is very insistent that I find a new doctor even though she has said herself that I will have a problem finding a doctor to take over prescribing my amount of medications. I am going to look in to hiring an attorney and suing for Medical Malpractice but I don't really know if a lawyer would even feel that I have a case. Does anyone have an opinion about this? I am in so much pain. I have not been able to get up from my bed or couch since January that's how bad the pain is. Please tell me what you think? ## Hello, Robin! ...

abuse Oxycontin

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...

12 panel hair follicle. test

I have occasionally used oxy's, about 60mg a day for 2 days twice a month. I use 90+ mg a day for years over a year ago and have cut back drastically. I might have to sod a hair drug test. Will my current use show? ## Mly, depends on what part of your hair is tested. ## They are doing a 12 panel hair test, they cut from the scalp in 3 places a pencil width size. ## If they do hair drug test plus extended opiates (which it looks like they will) the oxy use might show up. A 1.5 inch sample, cut at the scalp line will go back 90 days. A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. ## If I used 80mg of OxyContin 3x in the beginning of the last three months will that little show up on a hair follicle test ? ## See my post of Sept 25, 2014, but I don't think it wil...

I have chronic pain and have been on pain meds for around 20 years. No, I am not a drug addict. I have quit taking pain meds many times for several months at a time. The time I did that I was literally bed ridden which didn't go over well with my family. They begged me to go back to the doctor and get back on my pain meds. At this point I have been with my doctor for 4-5 years now only because my PCP would not increase my pain meds and I so desperately needed it to be increased. So I am at the point again where I need my meds increased and my pain doctor has only increased me one time around two years ago. Now I feel as if I am not on any medication at all. I currently am prescribed 4 - 20 mg OxyContin, 8 - 10/325 mg Norco and 8 - 350 mg Carisoprdol. The truth is (by the way I'v...

Oxycontin 15 mg ER Shortage In S Florida
8 Replies RSS
My PM MD just prescribed Oxycontin 15mg 3x to replace the too-many hydro & oxycodone pills I've been taking for severe back/hip pain. Just saw a UM surgeon who says surgery is not an option; its scoliosis and arthritis. Anyway, I've called over 10 pharmacies, including CVS and Wal-Green 24 hr. locations - and NOBODY has any Oxycontin. Having to call all over the place makes you feel like a degenerate junkie - when you mention the drug the phone goes silent. I'm simply trying to find relief and stop killing my liver! Anyone know why there is such a shortage? ## There is a policy in S. Fl where many pharmacies do NOT stock OXY. They will order it for a patient, and while the first fill may suffer a delay of a few days, thereafter they can reorder it in advance of your refi...

Oxycontin Profuse Sweating Sweat Sweats
22 Replies RSS
I have been on oxycontin for about 11 years for pain management. I take 80 to 100 mg per day in 20-30 mg doses orally. In the last couple of years I have developed a severe sweating problem...I will break into a sweat for no reason sometimes but usually upon any sort of stimulation physical or mental. I just went for a 10 minute walk and my shirt is soaked through...even the sleeves. If I play a set of music with my band, at the end of 40 minutes, I look like I stood in a shower with my clothes on. Is this normal as a side effect of oxycontin use? Anyone else experience anything like this? ## This can happen with the long-term use of most narcotics, because you are adding a chemical to your body and basically screwing with its function and chemistry. It can also occur with some antibiot...

Cheapest Pharmacy To Purchase Oxycontin 40 Mg

We have lost our health insurance and now I have to pay retail for my pain med I have been on for 8 years. I nee to know which pharmacy has the best price on the cost to me. Also dose anyone know what the pharamacy pays for the Oxycontin 40 mg wholesale. ## I'm sorry, but there's really no central database listing the price any pharmacy charges, it varies depending on how much you are buying, by location and which pharmacy you use. Oxycontin is also a name brand, so it is still quite expensive. My suggestion would be that you talk to your doctor about using an alternative medication that would be much cheaper. There is a time released Morphine available, the name brand is MS Contin, but it's also available as a generic. You'd just need a higher dose of it to be equivalen...
