Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Massachussetts
39 Replies RSS
I am in need of a new doctor in my area that is not going to blow me off when I am a new patient with a history of taking M S Contin, Oxycontin and Oxycodone. If anyone knows a decent doctor in my area I would appreciate the refferall it is hard to just call around for one when I say that I have been on meds they say they don't do that. Are you allowed to go out of state? to the next state over I am so sick of the reaction the second you mention a history of narcotics. I have recently lost feeling partially in my arms and legs from a car accident. What happened to good old doctor's ## Hello, Unfortunately, no one can really know ahead of time what a doctor is or is not willing to prescribe, as that is based on the doctor's discretion and not on someone else's previous ap...

CII prescript and two different states CA and ID?
Post a Reply
I am spending my time between California and Idaho. I suffer from chronic pain and depression. I do better with my depression when in Idaho, but all of my doctors are in California. It is too expensive to travel back to California every 30 days to get my 10 mg of Oxycontin refilled and I can't find any place to find answers to my problem. I would like to have a pain specialist that would work with my California pain specialist, but I can't seem to get a straight answer from my California doctor or my Pharmacy. Local Idaho pharmacy indicates they can't fill out-of-state prescriptions.

its a yellowish round pill with M in a box and numbers 595 on other side . anyone know what it is? ## The round yellow pill with M on one side and 595 on other side is the generic oxycontin pain killer 40mg. It is extremely addictive so you should talk to your daughter about it asap. ## I am holding one in my hand at the moment, and it is 100% a 40mg Controlled Release Oxycodone. This is a highly potent drug, and if it is not prescribed for your daughter, than it is also very illegal. Hope that this helps. ## Well, there is no doubt it is an oxy, and that's an opium, which is highly addictive and starts to hurt you Cuz Once you r addicted, I'd you don't have it, you become what is called "DOPE SICK" this it's very very bad. Talk to her ASAP. I'm an ex-H addic...

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
157 Replies RSS
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...

Took 2 OxyContin 60mg accidentally-what should I do?
4 Replies RSS
I just realized when I took my nighttime meds that I had just taken an OxyContin 60mg about an hour before that. (so I took two about an hour apart). I'm afraid I could overdose, but I know addicts probably take much more than that, so I'm not sure if I'm safe or not...I've been on this drug for well over 6 years ( 60mg at least 3 of those years), so I think I have a pretty good tolerance for it-what should I do? I'm ready to go to sleep but I don't want to wake up dead.. ## I'm sorry I didn't see your post sooner. How are you doing? Opiate tolerant or not, that's still a pretty high dosage to jump up to and, in case it ever happens again, you should know the danger signs to watch for, just in case. The early symptoms of a possible overdose might incl...

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

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
561 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...

Price Of 80mg Oxycontin Op
2 Replies RSS
I NEED TO KNOW THE OVER THE COUNTER PHARMACY PRICE OF 80 MG OXYCONTIN TIME RELEASE ## Oxycontin is a prescription only medication, since it contains a very potent narcotic, which is Oxycodone, therefore it can't be purchased over the counter. It requires a doctor's prescription. In addition, there is no set price. It is going to vary from pharmacy to pharmacy and depending on the amount of tablets required to fill the prescription. There is no generic, so it can be pretty expensive. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Do you mean cash price? You want to pay for your prescription without using insurance? meaning you have a written prescription from the doctor for the 80mg OxyContin.... If this is the case this med is disgustingly expensive.... For 20 pills in NY it is a...

Oxycontin Vs Morphine DOSES
2 Replies RSS
I was taking 4 80 mg oxys daily my doc put me on 2 100 mg teva morphines will it help the same and will i go through withdraw thank you ## The equivalent dose would actually be 120mgs of Morphine to equal each 80mg Oxycodone that you were taking, so you've actually been put on a lower dosage. Thus, it may not handle your pain as well as the Oxycodone did and yes, you may experience some withdrawal. Learn more Morphine details here. Have you started taking them yet? Are they helping any? ## Im taking 150mg of morphine sulfate Er cos i was taking 180 oxycodone.Will the morphine help me from withdrawals from the oxys?

Oxycontin damaged my teeth
581 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...

Generic Oxycontin Prescription
18 Replies RSS
Yesterday my doctor wrote me a prescription for "Oxycontin 20mg tablets" When I got to shoppers I was told they no longer make that medication. I was looking to get the generic oxycontins that I know are now available in Ontario. My doctor does not know much about this medication, and I am curious if she needs to write the prescription out differently. (I am thinking the generic name for oxycontin is oxycodone) Does anyone know for sure? As I have an appointment at the end of January and would be able to get the generic oxycontins that help relieve my chronic pain. I just need to be able to tell my doctor what the generic name is. Thank you in advance for all your help. ## Hi Mac, Oxycodone and Oxycontin are actually a little bit different. Oxycodone is an immediate release vers...

Does A Drug Test Show The Same Results If You Took Oxycontin Or Oxycodone
12 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. The two drugs have different opiate base so they...

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 ...

is prcadan percacet
1 Reply RSS
I have chronic back pain, my husband dd. If have discovered degenerative disease, it a lifetime of but oxycontin makes me sick. People tell me it would help too try peracdan or percacet ## Hello, Pam! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. Both of the medications you mentioned contain Oxycodone, Percodan couples it with Aspirin and Percocet couples it with Acetaminophen, so if Oxycodone makes you sick, you may also want to stay away from them. Vicodin might be a better choice, it contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. It's an idea you would ask your doctor about, anyway. 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. Is...
