what is the difference between Oxycontin OC vs OP?
Is this Newer version of Oxyconting OC vs OP the same, other that the obvious snorting, smoking etc..... ## Yes, it is supposed to be the same, time released Oxycodone, however there have been many complaints that it causes odd side effects and doesn't work as well. Side effects should be the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. If you have tried it, please post back with your experience. ## Makes me feel out of body. Not cool for me. I have been on this same med for over a year with great effectiveness and no side-effects. Now I have more pain, more headaches, and dizziness which I never had before. Thanks dope heads for causing a combat veteran to feel chronic pain again! ## I have been on oc for almost 6 years. 40 mg. and percocett for break through pain. Since they...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
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...

Jaw clenching from oxycontin?
I have been prescribed oxycontin 15mg ER every 12 hours for femoral aseptic necrosis. My femur is literally dying and disintegrating inside me because of 20 years on prednisone for a congenital endocrine disorder. I'm only 25, so these past three months have been the first time I've ever really been on regular painkillers I've finally agreed to have surgery after trying everything to avoid it. In the meantime, my doctor has prescribed oxycontin to manage my pain but I'm having some weird side effects- total loss of appetite, shakes, hot flashes. It's also making me lock my jaw and clench my teeth to the point where my whole face hurts. Has anyone else experienced this side effect? And if so is there anything that can be done to mitigate it? This is the first medicati...

Oxycontin Prescription guidelines Tx
My wife has been in pain management for 12 + years. She is on 20 mg x 3 a day. What is the protocol for filling long term prescriptions we are having a problem getting hers filled the way they are written. For the last year he has written her a prescription for six months (six different prescriptions dated monthly) since she is one of his most stable patients. This saves us on office visits and she is subject to random drug panels. There has been no problem filling them for the past year until today, the pharmacy is refusing to fill them as written. ## Hello, Scootchy! How is your wife? Yes, they are not supposed to be post-dated and the pharmacy isn't supposed to fill them like that. According to regulations, she should be seen by her doctor each month and a new prescription writte...

oxycontin 60 mg
If I take 2 of the 30 mg oxycodone and I have the 60 mg oxycontin. Can you cut a 60 mg oxycontin in half and take it that way to get the immediate effect you get with taking 2 of the 30 mg oxycodone. I have to mail order my medications and there was a mix up and I have been taking for 15 years for chronic pain. Just trying to get by without going 2 hours to my dr to get a written script and then it would mess up my scripts again!! Thanks for the help. ## Hello, Susie! How are you? No, the new Oxycontin are actually tamper proof, so they prevent anyone from being able to do that. If you cut them up, you will just get a ball of goo that still releases the medication just as it should. However, there could also still be a risk of getting too much, at once, and suffering an overdose. This i...

EASIEST WAY TO REMOVE NEW OXYCONTIN 80 OP COATING
Hey! In all the other threads about the new oxy's -- everyone is stressing the new coatings, it seems. I have found the easiest and most efficient way to get BOTH coatings off is {edited for safety reasons} Thought y'all would like to know that. ## I called Perdue today and BITCHED! I have been taking the 80's for years at high doses and i just got my script filled and i got 540 of the new ones. I broke out in hives the size of lemons. I called this number 203.588.8000 and told the woman what happened and she transfered me to a nurse in the medical dept. I just asked her what the heck they did to my meds. It's the damn binders they're using that did this to me. She asked my name and address and how many i take at a time and IF i swallow them. I would guess if enough ...

How to Break Down Oxycontin OP for Snorting
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...

Considering withdrawal because of difficulty getting medications
I am a RSD patient that felt fortunate I only took 3 1/2 years to be diagnosed. For the last 8 years , in East Tn,I have been taking oxycontin and oxycodone, now some new law is passed and I can no longer get my Rx from my pain Dr, because they don't have the license required to be able to write Rx as large as my past (which I have become very use to & are working less than in pass) so I am sent to a clinic with this license. All if a sudden I am being treated like a hard core criminal trying to scam them, with my current MRI's and nerve diagnostics! I was photographed and then filmed after a UA stating my name and date of birth as I put urine in bag to be sent off to San Diego for a 16 panel analysis that cost $1,137, for a UA! The P.A. who I was assigned to, I couldn't...

From two 80 mg. four times a day of Oxycontin to nothing
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! ...

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...

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?

OUCH!!! please help answer my ? ## A standard urine test tests for Opiates or narcotics which includes oxycodone, oxycontin, as well as hydrocodone. So when they told you that you tested positive for hydrocodone, they likely meant narcotics. Another possibility is that hydrocodone contains different amounts of Tylenol, anywhere from 325mg to 1000mg. The test, if sensitive, could have shown the huge amount of Tylenol you're taking and the narcotic- if I understood you ...

How To Break Down Oxycontin Op Inject It
I am a Iraq vet who has a heroin problem I have easy availableity to the new op Oxy.cotten but have learned u can shoot them up can you help me? ## Shooting up any medication, which is not intended to be injected, is actually very dangerous. Tablets, especially time released ones, contain fillers that are not intended to be broken down by the human body, they are normally just expelled in your waste. If you inject these medications, you are putting these fillers into your body in a manner, in which, it can't eliminate them and this creates the risk of blockages, that could lead to embolisms or strokes. And as to the new Oxycontin, it has been specially formulated to help prevent this type of abuse, even if you try to crush it and dissolve it, it turns into a gummy substance that ret...

Inject How To Oxycontin Op
Im looking for the best way to inject the new oxycontis. I have 20mg pills and have been told to cook them in the oven after scraping them down to powder with a pair of neddle nose pliers. Im betting there is a better way. If anyone knows of one, Im all ears. ## Injecting medications that have not been specially formulated to use in this manner is a very dangerous practice. Tablets contain fillers and not all of them are intended to be used and broken down by the human body. Some of them are substances that are normally just expelled in your waste. When you break down a tablet and inject it, you are putting these substances directly into your body, in places where it cannot get rid of them. You run the risk of creating blockages that can lead to serious health problems, including pulmon...

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...
