Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
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...

How To Inject New Oxycontin OP
I've tried everyting with the new Op Oxycontin and this is the best and only way to do this. {edited for safety} ## that dose not work the i have wasted two or three of them it just sets in your nose and then you snezze and its gone i get 90 60 a mounth and been takeing them for 5 years best way to take them is let them set in your mouth and slowly chew on them its all most like snorting them ## The best way to take this pill is to follow the instructions on the bottle. Obviously the new OP was made for a reason, and likewise a pill is a pill for a reason- to take orally. For those who do not know how to take this pill orally, here are instructions: "Swallow oxycodone extended-release tablets whole; do not chew, break, divide, crush, or dissolve them. If you swallow broken, chew...

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

Tolerance Level
I was prescribed 15 mg oxycontin 3x per day along with 10 mg oxycodone up to 3x per day. I didn't seem to need to oxycodone at first but a week later I find myself taking it all 3 times. Could I have become tolerant to the 15mg oxycontin already? ## I doubt you've developed a tolerance that fast, but your body may have gotten more used to it, so the affect isn't as pronounced as it first was. This is 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. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Had a urine test today and the doctor said it came back positive for Oxycontin.
Had a urine test today and the doctor said it came back positive for Oxycontin. I've never taken that drug nor even know what it does. He said I failed the test. How can this be? Current Medications: Methotrexate 15 mg weekly Folic Acid 6 mg daily Hydrocodone 5/325 every 8 hours Ventolin HFA inhaler every 6 hrs PRN Albuterol Sulfate Solution as needed Symbicort 4.5 mcg twice daily furosemide 40 mg once a day metforminER 500 mg twice a day Montelukeast 10 mg one a day Glipizide 5 mg one a day Protonix 40 mg one a day Levothyroxine .125 mg one a day Baclofen 10 mg twice a day Magnesium Citrate OTC twice a day Simvastatin 20 mg twice a day Potassium Chlor 10% liquid PRN I absolutely don't understand why the test came out that way and I'm still in disbelief. Thanks.

is it possible to snort the new OP 80s?
i have been prescribed to OC 80's for 6 years now for my debilitating pain. i started snorting them about a year back when i learned that it works much faster and better. i'm currently up to 4 a 5 a day. yesterday i got my script filled to learn that they had come out w/a new generic replacement that has OP on the side that used to say OC. i've tried everything in my power from hose clamps, to files to try to crush these damn things down to a powder to snort them and nothing seems to work. taking these pills orally does NOTHING for me except make me feel tired and sick to my stomache and i had to stay home from work today because of this. i know there has to be a way to break down these new generic pills and separate the plastic from the oxycodone, but have yet to learn what...

I am currently trying to get information on the new released generic Oxycontin 80 milligram tablets .I have heard that by the end of this month there will be a couple of new generic brand Oxycontin 80's made available at a reduced cost here in Ontario Canada .The current cost I have to pay for the dosage of Oxycontin 80 milligram tablets I am taking is $233.oo a week or $932.oo a month ( That though is for the Oxycodone which I found when we changed over from the Oxycontin's was a bit less effective in pain relief) So I for one will be happy to see when the generic brand Oxycontin's are released .If of course their strength is as good as the original Oxycontin's were . If you have any information regarding the new generic brand Oxycontin 80 milligram ,IE the name brand ,...

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 inject 30 mg op oxycontin
I've been injecting oxycontin oc with different mgs. and now I just recieved these new oxycontins that are 30 mgs. op and I cant get them to break down so that I can inject them I'm really going through some terrible withdraws. can some one please give me some advice so that I can? Thank you ## I think I heard that the makers of Oxycontin (Purdue/Pharma) just changed their Oxycontin tablets with some sort of a plastic covering. I read about it about six months ago, saying that they will be moving to this new formula. It is supposed to curb abuse of the medication. Obviously it is working! Sorry dude. ## It is not a plastic, since that could not be broken down by the human body. However, yes they cannot be broken down to be abused, like the previous Oxycontin could be. Crushing, ...

oxycontin doctor 15137
I have lupus antiphospholipid syndrome,severe neuropathy,chronic severe pain. I have been on oxycontin and cortisone for ten years. I've had clot in Lund and lost most of right hand. These medications have not removed all pain but in ten years I have lowered my own dose twice and never asked for it to be increased. If it were not for this medication the pain would prevent me from being active. I was in army 10 years and scuba dived parasailing, white water rafting, I have always been active. I've had to stop some activities, but the worse thing to happen to me would have to be laying in bed, it would cause me to die quickly, activity is keeping me as healthy as I can be. I have never misused my medication and don't intend to. Unfortunately for insurance reasons, I was sent t...

my new script doesn't work as well as the original oxycontin
Is there a brown colored pill for the 60mg oxycontin OP... my new Prescription is brown with the number 60 on one side and And the letters op are both capitalized on the reverse side? If anyone can help please comment!!! ## Hi, Paul! Sorry that it's not working well for you. There have actually been many posts similar to yours, since the formulation of the Oxycodone was changed. Many people have said that it doesn't work well for them anymore, plus it seems to be causing some odd, unexpected side effects. The original formulation is no longer available, you can only get Oxycontin in this new formulation that's been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. Learn more Oxycontin details here. What I'd suggest is speaking to your doctor to see if there is an alternative m...

Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
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"? I am just trying to have enough meds to get me through an extra month until my husbands ...

Manufacturer: Purdue Pharma LP National Drug Code (NDC): 59011-0420 Oxycontin (Oxycodone) comes in various forms and is used to treat moderate to severe levels of pain.

Snorting Oxycontin Or Oral Which Stays In The Blood Longer
Does anyone know if snorting a 30mg Oxycodone or taking the pill orally. Is there a difference in how long it will stay in the bloodstream ? ## I would think since snorting the drug gets it going through your system at a quicker rate, that it will in turn decrease the half life (in comparison to taking it orally)..just because you could be metabolizing it differently from the start. That's just my theory though and I may be wrong. Unfortunately (for many individuals) there's no set of dosing guidelines for snorting medications. Just taking it orally as it is meant to be taken, will ensure you that the half-life of the drug "is what it is" 3 - 4.5 hours. More information about Oxycodone can be viewed by clicking on the link below: I hope this helps! ## Taking a Oxycodon i...

snorting 20 mg oxycontin
is is really dangerous for an opiate tolerant person to snort just 20 mg of oxycontin? ## my son is dead from snorting ocx, dont do it PLEASE ## No but the reason it is suggested that you don't is the same as any other time released pill/tablet crushing or cutting it up will cause it to be absorbed more rapidly instead of over a period of time 20mg is a low-medium does and will be safe for just about any one who is not sensative or allergic to the drug how ever higher strength oxy like the 80mg and 160mg are VERY dangerous for someone will little or no tolorence to snort ## YES! It is very dangerous, not all fillers in these tablets are meant to be absorbed by your body, some are expelled and you are putting them right into your lungs. Not to mention the possibility of overdosing! #...
