2 Replies RSS
I've been on 2mg xanax four times a day for years and it never fails, i've also taken oxycontin 20mg for some time and now the last to refills of xanax have not been working. Is the oxycontin effecting the xanax..I'm really scared as I am very scared my xanax won't ever work the way its supposed to..any advice ## Hello, Based on my research, using Alprazolam together with Oxycontin (Oxycodone) may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. I haven't found any information stating that taking Oxycontin will make Xanax less effective, so maybe that's just how your body is reacting to the combination. The real problems with mixing these two arise from the...

40 mg oxycontin vs ms contin 30mg.
30 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...

How To Break Down Oxycontin Op
98 Replies RSS
word on the street is that you {edited for safety} i haven't tried this nor will i but i sure sounds smart using the citric acid to totally take away the gummy substance;}. ## It still wouldn't be a safe thing to do. These tablets contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body, but are normally expelled in your waste. If you try to alter a tablet, to snort or inject it, you are putting these substances in your body in a way, in which, it cannot get rid of them. This can lead to blockages, that can cause health conditions, such as strokes or embolisms. Are there any comments or questions? ## Hello, I am a former Marine from the Gulf War. During my first deployment, I fell from a heilocopter causing sever spinal injuries. Having lived with sever ...

Oxycontin Original Formula
18 Replies RSS
I just filled my prescription for OxyContin and much to my surprise got the old formula. I went online to confirm and sure enough it is the old formula with "OC" on one side and the number n the other. Is Pharma going back to the old formula or was this just a "one off" circumstance? ## No, they aren't returning to manufacturing the old formula, but if a place still has some of it in stock, they are still allowed to dispense them. Thus, you probably just got a fill of some that were still lingering on a shelf somewhere. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## What is "the number n"? Quit putting that crap in your veins and take it like youre supposed to then we ALL would not have to suffer the consequence's of dope...

How Long Does The Oxycontin 80mg op to work
11 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....

oxycontin op 30 mg
31 Replies RSS
iv been taking oxycontin 30mg with oc on them - this time i got oxycontin 30 with op on them and they seem to make me sick. What is the difference? ## 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 abuse them, an...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
526 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...

How do you figure a morphine equilvalant. What is the max a pain management MD can prescribe with the new laws? ## Hello, Kate! How are you? The overall directives as to prescribe no more than the equivalent of 120mgs of Morphine per day, though some states have lowered it even further to no more than 100mgs. As to the conversion, Morphine is one a half times weaker than Oxycodone. Thus, the equivalency would be 80mgs of Oxycodone per day to equal the maximum of 120mgs of Morphine. 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. However, these limits do not apply, if someone has intractable pain from a possibly fatal condition, such as st...

Hey! I'm wondering if it's possible for me to get a prescription online, so I wanna try some things. The medicine I'm interested in getting is Oxycontin/Oxycodone. ## Hello, Arkana! How are you? No, it is not possible or legal. In order to have such a medication prescribed, you must be evaluated by a doctor and monitored on a regular basis, while taking it. 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.

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...

I got oxycodon 30mg from my doctor after he wrote me oxcotin 80mg time release, which the walgreens didn't have so the pharmacy called him and he changed it to oxycodon 30mg no time release, it is whit round and A215 is printed on it,I want to know which one of them are strongest ## Hello, Michael! How are you? Please don't let the fact they are prescription medications fool you, the higher dose, the higher the number, the stronger the medication. Thus, the 80mg Oxycontin were stronger than the 30mg tablets. How many of the 30mgs did he instruct you to take each day? 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.

Generic Oxycontin 80 mg

Greetings! Just returned from my regular pharmacy where I have been getting my O.C. 80's for years. Today my pharmacist told me that there is now a generic for my Oxy. She told me that because of the cost difference my insurance co. is demanding that I get the generic but the store won't have the generic in stock fot two to three days. This sounds fishy as I have not heard anything about a generic O.C. Has anyone else run into anything like this? Thanks.....Dennis ## Hello, Dennis! How are you? I know originally, they did away with the generics, due to the fact that there were far too many on the market and it made it hard to keep track of the supply to prevent theft and diversion. However, from what I'm currently reading generics have been recently approved from Actavis and...

How are you? Yes, you should inform your doctor, but they'll likely balk if you ask for a specific medication, since that's viewed as drug seeking behavior. It would be best to let them suggest something. However, if the Oxycontin is working well for you, there is no need to switch, there are higher doses of it available that you can try. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to ...
