which is stronger oxycodone 5/325 or hydroc10/325
have been prescribed both, but cant tell if one is stronger than the other ## 5mg oxycodone, according to the equivalence table I have in front of me, is equal to about 20mg hydrocodone. Therefore the combination drug containing oxycodone should be roughly twice as strong as the one containing hydrocodone. These drugs are only available in the UK in their pure form, not adulterated with paracetamol like yours. As I have written elsewhere, I really don't see the point of the combos. Unless you are suffering a fever, in which case paracetamol will ease the body temperature. But why take the non-narcotic unless you really need it? It is a very toxic and cumulative drug responsible for a lot of deaths. If I were you I'd ask for a prescription for 10mg hydrocodone without the apap. O...

oxycontin op 80 how long does the high last
oxycontin op 80 how long does the high last ## Since it cannot be broken down to get all the medication at once, there is no high to be had. It was things like this that it was designed to prevent. Side effects remain the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Read more: Are there any questions? ## I am not a professional health care provider but you do get a high from the op pills as I have experienced it before... The high usuaally lasts about 2 to 4 hours for some reason it varies different times when I take it!! You do experience side effcts from it longer than that but the actual high is 2-4 hours!! ## WRONG! its an opiate and will get u high as such. ## I am on a methadone clinic.

what does op stand for in oxycontin op
my med had oc on it for oxicontin but now it has op. What does that stand for ## I am not certain exactly what it stands for, however, it has replaced the original Oxycontin with the OC marking. Oxycontin OP cannot be crush, chewed or broken down. If someone tries, it basically turns into a gummy goo, that is supposed to only dissolve in stomach acid and retain its time released properties. Side effects remain the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Has anyone out there heard of a brand new formulation called Oxycontin RF I got a letter from Purdue( I have been bugging them forever- so they have my address in records.) The letter was addressed to a person of the same last name as me, but different first name, and it got sent ...

What is the new drug op that is substitute for OC .what is the diffence?? ## It is the new version, called Oxycontin OP, it is specially designed to prevent abuse. Even if someone crushed or chews it, it will retain its time released nature, but still work the same. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## They just messed up big time ## The new formula does not work the same. The old oc's worked really well for chronic pain.

Oxycontin Does It Have Morphine In
Will oxycontin show up as morphine on a drug screen ## Hi Sherry, Both Oxycodone (oxycontin) and Morphine can test positive for opiates; so depending on the quality of the test given, there's always a chance for a false-positive discrepancy between the two. Furthermore, many of the standardized drug tests typically used for screenings lack the sensitivity to distinguish beyond the basic structures of the drug class vs. the drug name; making the odds of a false-positive even greater. I hope this info helps to answer your question! ## I was taken 40mg Oxycontin 2x daily for my chronic daily headaches. I was called in for a urine test & immediately stopped my meds cuz they said I tested positive for Morphine when I never touched it. Then 6 mos later I was taking 20mg Oxycontin ...

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...

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.

40mg oxycontin er look a like pills
I need a 40 mg oxycontin Er pill look alike. They are a light orange almost kinda yellow pill. Any suggestions would be very helpful. I understand the markings will be different and that is fine as long as the color is pretty much dead on. ## I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this, but I don't know who you're trying to fool by doing that. Unless you know of a quality counterfeit, there's really no such thing as a true look alike. The imprint on the pill doesn't lie and would be easily identified by a medical professional or someone who takes these types of pills on a regular basis. Not only that, but you could possibly be endangering the patient who's prescribed these by mixing them with something that they are allergic to or that isn't necessarily t...

did they replace all the original oxycontin with this new crush resistance formula
I heard that all the pharmacy replaced all the original oxycontin (OC) with this new formula that prevents anyone from crushing it. The new pills says OP on the one side instead of it saying OC. And if you still can get the original oxycontin (OC) do you now need to request it from your doctor so he can write you a prescription for the original oxycontin (the pill that says OC on one side instead of it saying OP ## The original Oxycontin has been discontinued and will no longer be available. Once pharmacies are out of their current stock, there will not longer be a supply of it out there. The new Oxycontin OP has been specially designed to prevent abuse, by retaining its time released properties, even if crushed or chewed. Otherwise, for pain, it works the same and still has the same si...

oxycontin cr c 11 80mg
I've got the oxycontin cr c 11 80mg. They come in a package of 10 with bubble push through. They are forest green and oval but have no markings at all. I was told there are no markings because they are generic and sold to hospitals. Does anyone out there have information about this? Please help, in severe pain. Thanks to all. ## Hospitals get their medications from the same sources as pharmacies, so they also have markings on them. If you've been given tablets that don't have any markings, then they are not a legal U.S. approved Oxycontin. The only Oxycontin tablets available here to be used anywhere are the name brand, which all have markings on them. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizzin...

How Long Does Oxycontin (40mg 1 tablet} Stay In Your System
i have numerous spinal nerve issues plus rsd an fibromyalgia,HBP,diabetes,macular current med list cymbalta,metformin,glimipride,lisinopril,lyrica,xanax ,prn robaxin,norco,aspirin ## It normally would be undetectable on a urine drug screening after 3 days, less for addicts who use regularly. However, if you are on all of those other drugs, it may take a little longer, I don't know for sure, but your liver, kidneys, etc. are very busy processing all of those meds. Some meds make you urinate less and that could mean that it would take longer for you to excrete all of the metabolites that drug screenings check for. Stuff like xanax, norco, and oxycontin constipate you, which equals a slower metabolism. The more you weigh, the longer it stays in your system. Do you need t...

how can you crush new oxycontin
I have the new oxycontin and it seems undoable to crush and snort anybody know anything about that ## Yea, It is made so that you can NOT Snort them! Why would you want too in the first place? Abusing them is why they changed from the O.C. to the O.P. I guess alot of people thought that the O.C. meant Okay to Crush, now it means Oxy Puddy! I don't think they work as well but I am smiling at the fact that their are a bunch of people going thru withdrawl from abuse! Those who really need them for pain well I am sorry but we will have to live with a little more pain then we have in the past. I don't like it one bit but at least it will cut back on the abuse! THANK YOU for that! If people did not abuse them then it would have stayed the same and for us who live in constant pain well...

pill with p 40 it's yellow and oval
this pill i found is yellow,oval.says p on 1 side an 40 on the other,my friend thinks it is a generic oxycontin ## Hello, Kevin! How are you? No, your friend has the imprint correct, but not the shape, that tablet is round. I think what you've found is a delayed release 40mg Pantoprazole tablet, which is a proton pump inhibitor that's used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions such as GERD, heartburn, ulcers and gastritis. Can anyone confirm this?

Oxycontin Op Can You Still Get The Original
I have a friend here in Florida who's mother is still getting 80's original formula. I seen the bottle which was filled on 12/29. So idk if it's a Dr's request thing which they claim or pharmacy still has them left. But him and her says Dr had to request it on script. Idk I just know I seen them last month. Any truth to this?? ## The only way she would still be able to get the original ones, with the OC marking is if the pharmacy still had some in stock. The doctors request would have no effect, because the company that manufactures them, Purdue Pharma has stopped manufacturing the original, however pharmacies are allowed to continue to dispense the original, until they run out. It could be that the pharmacy she is using has a supply and is making it last, as long as pos...

what is this tablet I found?
I want to know what the pill is for, specifically. Part of the pills coating has been peeled off . What I can see is: IP40 0r OP40. ## Hello, Tracy! How are you? What color is it? If it's a yellowish color, you may have found a 40mg Oxycontin tablet. 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.

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.
