oxycontin round blue pill with letters on one side
1 Reply RSS
Found this pill outside of a candy store. Teenagers are always in the store on Friday/Saturday and I don't want a young child to pick it up and eat it like candy... ## What are the markings on it? That is what would enable me to identify it for you. Can you please post back and clarify? The FDA warns that Oxycontin carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and constipation.

Oxycontin OP and OC what's the difference
209 Replies RSS
I've been taking the oxycontin oc for years now. I want to know what exactly is 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, Sto...

How Long Does The Oxycontin 80mg op to work
16 Replies RSS
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....

what does the 'pur' on my oxycontin mean
1 Reply RSS
Just trying to find out what the PUR on my oxycodone bottle means. I'm guessing it's a form of sustained release, but just wanted to know the medical terminology. Thanks! ## That stands for the manufacturer, which in this case would be Purdue Pharma. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possible including nausea, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, constipation, and dry mouth. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. Currently, Oxycontin is only available from this manufacturer and it is only available as a time released formulation. Is there anything else I can help with?

40mg oxycontin op efficacy
1 Reply RSS
They are horrible. Purdue pharma put too much filler and other stuff in them. They can pass right through your body in your stool, which happened to me. They can make you sick. They take way too long to work. I get about 6 hours and that's just calming my pain down. The docs will tell you they're 12 hour pain relief which is BULL, and the 80mg say 12 hours - Now how can that be? I've been through 6 failed lower back operations, damaged nerves, scar tissue on nerves, 5 deteriorated discs in my upper back, 3 severe multiple bone spurs sticking in my nerves and 2 bulging discs in my neck, and need both knees replaced. And my doc only wants me to take 2 a day. I only get 3 hours of sleep. I'm up at 1am or 2:30am and then take another dose at 9 or 10 am. I CANNOT go through t...

Yellow Pill With Number 40 In Dark On One Side
3 Replies RSS
i found under my fridge a yellow round small pill with 40 on one side in dark letering, any idea what it is? ## Is there any chance that there's a marking "OC" on the other side of the pill? The closest match I'm finding is a round yellow pill imprinted with 40 on one side and OC on the other; identified as OxyContin (40mgs). Manufacturer: Purdue Pharma LP National Drug Code (NDC): 59011-0440 If this doesn't match your pill, I hope it can at least help to narrow down your search! ## cant see any thing on other side, but the 40 is in dark numbers and its not ingraved in the pill itself ## What is this small round oval like pill yellowish in color marked 40 in black lettering on one side,there is about 6 of them and none of them say anything on other side

Oxycontin damaged my teeth
733 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 best replacement for oxycontin. High dose long time user for chronic pain. It seems like nothing else works as well.

I was on the Oxycontin 80mg 3x a day for 16 yrs. I have been tried on alot of other things . I went on methadone w/ 2 40mg of oxy then they quit making the methadone that iI took. None of the kadian or other things in that class have worked. I am now taking ms contin 100mg. a day w/15 mg. 2x a day it is not enough and my Dr. who gave me a hard time off and on about the oxy's now refuses to do the irs that are still available with any other meds. I've took the opana and at the time it seemed fine but pricey that has been a couple of years ago just to see. They have a cap I did not take the er's though. My Dr. is funny about writing large numbers of meds. This ms contin could work but he will not for instance give 60 more mgs. He would rater write 200mgs.3x a day because of am...

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"?

80 mgs.of Oxycontin 3 times a day is $1,175.00 for a 1 mos.rx, what else can I take in a generic form? Hydrmorphone? What mg?
6 Replies RSS
Please help, I'm out of my 80mg. Oxycontins, I take 3 a day and I take Between 4-8 Norco's for break thru pain. With insurance change, they want $300 for RX plus a $250 deductible up front for name brand medication. This is Blue Sheild PPO by: "Covered California" and I pay them $536.22 a month for their coverage. I only need this month to be covered as my husband gets new coverage from his new job in 10 days.

40mg oxycontin er look a like pills
10 Replies RSS
I need a 40 mg oxycontin Er pill look alike. They are a light orange almost kinda yellow pill. Any suggestions would be very helpful. I understand the markings will be different and that is fine as long as the color is pretty much dead on. ## I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this, but I don't know who you're trying to fool by doing that. Unless you know of a quality counterfeit, there's really no such thing as a true look alike. The imprint on the pill doesn't lie and would be easily identified by a medical professional or someone who takes these types of pills on a regular basis. Not only that, but you could possibly be endangering the patient who's prescribed these by mixing them with something that they are allergic to or that isn't necessarily t...

Does Oxycontin And Oxycodone Show Up The Same In A Urine Drug Test
157 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...
