Oxycontin damaged my teeth
698 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...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
622 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...

Does A Drug Test Show The Same Results If You Took Oxycontin Or Oxycodone
15 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 Long Will 1 Oxycontin Stay In Your System After Taking Cleansing Pills
6 Replies RSS
If I take 1 oxy on sat. night and then next day took 3 cleansing pills, and cranberry pills will my udt be clean on monday ## The major route of oxycodone excretion is in the urine (so taking the cranberry pills was a good option). The effects of oxycodone last up to 4 hours after use. The length of time following drug use for which a positive result may occur is dependent upon several factors including the frequency and amount of usage, metabolic rate, excretion rate, drug half-life, and the drug user’s age, weight, activity, and diet. Taking any of sort of detox (cleansing) pills will definitely speed up the excretion rate. I don't know what brand you're using or its strength or quality, but it will certainly be more helpful than nothing at all even if you d...

4 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.

I need help finding a pain doctor in the bellevue wa state area and will drive further if have to. need doctor thats taking new patients and prescribes pain meds. In chronic pain since 2002 and will try all leeds ## Are you able to get into Seattle, at all? I can probably find you more listings there, if you can post back and let me know.

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...

Oxycontin OP Duration 40mg Cut in Half
58 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 ...

Generic Oxycontin IN NEW JERSEY HELP !!!!
9 Replies RSS
Where can i find generic oxycontin 40Mg in north jersey?????? i have a legitimate script and cant find it! i cant spend 200$ on my medicine ## I am very sorry, but there is no generic of Oxycontin, which contains the narcotic Oxycodone in a time released formulation. The generics were removed from the market, several years ago, due to the extremely high rates of theft and diversion that take place with this medication. If there is only one company making it, Purdue Pharma, then it is far easier to keep track of the supply and where it ends up. Even the ones provided by Ethex Pharmaceuticals are name brand, they are just a licensed distributor for Purdue. Have you tried talking to your doctor about trying something else? There is a regular release formulation of Oxycontin that is availab...

Is diloded stronger than oxycontin? Norco?
18 Replies RSS
I am wondering if diloded is stronger than oxycontin? morphine? norco? norco 10/325? liquid 40ml norco 2.5mg/5ml? ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone. That said, it is a potent narcotic, and what it is stronger than depends on the dosage of each. It is not stronger than most dosages of Oxycodone, but is stronger than some. Oxycodone is the strongest product on the market approved to treat pain. Whether it is stronger than the others also depends on what dose of the Dilaudid you're asking about. Was this prescribed for you? You can read more about it here: ## Actually, Opana (oxymorphone) is about 2 to 3 times stronger than oxycodone, or contin. I went from a oxy 30mg ER to an Opana 10mg and have had the best results as far as pain relief. ## can you list the lea...

How Long Does It Take For Opiates To Show Up In Urine
17 Replies RSS
If I took 60 mg of.oxycontin approximately 45 min before iron test will it show up??? How long does it usually take? ## Generally if you aren't getting drug tested it won't show up, because they aren't looking for that. If for some reason they do find it, just tell them you are taking it because you were prescribed it for pain (or whatever the case may be). Essentially it's none of their business if they are testing you for iron levels and not for drugs. Aside from that if they were to drug test you it most likely will show up. It also depends largely on whether or not you took it on a full stomach. if you did, it may take a little while longer than normal to digest through your system. Logically though, if you feel the effects of drug after you took it, then it is in yo...

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 ...
