Severe concearns with op OxyContin compared to old oc 80mg
2 Replies RSS
I was diagnosed with bone cancer several years ago and prior to during and after surgery I was prescribed oc 80mg. Which most of the time worked to relieve my pain. After being blessed (or not now) and survived they changed to the op. understand why but in all honestly it ruined my pain managment. By not helping as well and I believe causing other problems as well. It doesn't cover my pain doesn't last as long and if I miss one dose I get very ill. Please purdue pharma do the right thing and help those that use it properly and that were lucky to survive go back to oc's or bring back 160's. Imbegging you do the right thing. We get treated bad enough from the stigma of oxy atleast give it to those who take and need the medication as prescribed. Sincerely. In constant pain ...

I have only been in the Milwaukee area for about a year and I have recently lost my Pain Mgt Dr. and I am having an impossible time trying to find another Dr who will continue with my prescription for 20 mg of Oxycontin. They all want to give me the shots or epidurals. Been there/done that and not going back to them. I have done the physical therapy, exercises, therapy, etc. They even want to do surgery but I am not going to do it. Does anyone know of a Pain Mgt Dr in the Milwaukee area that will write a prescription?

Does anyone know of any primary care physicians in the Shreveport/Bossier City/Haughton/Minden area that do pain management? I have been going to a pain management doctor here in Shreveport for about 6 years now, but it is just getting to expensive. He refuses to to go any higher on my dosage of Oxycontin, which is 30 mg 3 times a day. And he will not give me anything for break through pain. I am on Medicaid so I have to pay him out of pocket. Medicaid pays for 60 of my oxy's, but I have to pay for the other 30. If I knew of a primary care physician that accepts does some pain management and also accepts medicaid it would be a really big help. I'd really appreciate anyone that could help me out and answer this. Thank you. ## There aren't any PCP's who do Pain Management ...

Does Oxycontin And Oxycodone Show Up The Same N A Drug Urine Test
123 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...

Have there been recent fda changes to Oxycontin CR?
Post a Reply
I have arthritis all over my body and am in constant pain. I was on Opana ER for years with good results until a month ago when the Dr decided to change it to Oxycontin CR. I went to pain management today and have been on Oxycontin 30mg CR for a month. It hasn't been working very well and I have been having tons of breakthrough pain. I told the Dr that we needed to increase the time release and she told me that the FDA recently made changes and that according to those changes I was on too strong of a dose and it needed to be lowered! I have searched all over the web and can find no info about any recent FDA changes. Has anyone else heard of this? By the way I have never in my life abused drugs and always take them exactly as directed.

40 mg oxycontin vs ms contin 30mg.
31 Replies RSS
I have been taking 40mg oxycontin 3x a day. My insurance won't cover it any more. My Doc prescribed ms contin 30mg 2 x a day. will it work? ## Oxycontin contains the active ingredient Oxycodone. It is stronger than the MS Contin which contains the active ingredent Morphine. Both are narcotic pain relievers. That said, your doctor has actually prescribed you a lower dose, to be taken less frequently than what you were taking of the Oxycontin. However, the only way to see if it will help you is for you to try it. Some medications are effective for certain people, some are not. If this dosage does not handle your pain, make sure to contact your doctor right away and let them know. They may need to prescribe one that is slightly higher or to be taken more frequently. You may still exper...

Does A Drug Test Show The Same Results If You Took Oxycontin Or Oxycodone
9 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.

I have been trying to find a pharmacy in Bradenton that will fill my prescriptions for OxyContin ER 60mg one every 12 hours and Morphine Sulfate IR 15 mg three times daily for breakthrough pain.

Oxycontin Profuse Sweating Sweat Sweats

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...
