How To Break Down Oxycontin Op
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 ...

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 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...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
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...

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 OP 60 mg vs Oxymorphone ER
Just switched over from oxy 30mg instant release 6x daily to oxycontin 60mg with 2 30mg IR for breakthrough. Been on this for a long time. I find that I'm very disappointed with the oxycontin 60 it seems to only last 5 hours at the most and I have many breakthrough pains during that period of time. I've heard of oxymorphone ER and want to know if this would be better for me due to opioid tolerance. If anybody can give me opinions on this please do. Thanks. ## First off, the 30mg that you're taking cannot be instant release tablets, the instant release is only available in a 5mg capsule. If you're taking 30mg tablets, then they have to be the regular release formulation, which is a generic for Roxicodone. Learn more Roxicodone details here. And the Oxycontin just doesn...

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.

How Long Will 1 Oxycontin Stay In Your System After Taking Cleansing Pills
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...

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, ...

can you smoke oxycontin op 80
just curious ## No, the new Oxycontin OP have been specially designed to help prevent such abuse of the medication. Even if you try to crush, chew or dissolve them, they retain their time released properties.

CAN YOU INJECT TARGINACT?
CAN YOU INJECT TARGINACT, ITS 1OMG OXYCONTIN AND 5MG NALOXONE TO PREVENT CONSTIPATION? AN OVAL PILL ## It specifically says on the information leaflet that you should NOT inject Targinact. As it it a slow-release tablet an injection would be a significant overdose and likely to result in death. It is possible to get the two drugs seperately and when it is given alone Naloxone is normally given in injection form but please do not inject Targinact. ## The naloxone is not to prevent constipation....it is a narcotic antagonist added to he pill to prevent abuse....such as crushing it and injecting it. Either way, it is not safe as overdose is highly probable and I do believe the naloxone would send you into precipitated withdrawls. Hence the reason for the use of naloxone added to a narcotic...

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...

Oxycontin = Oxycodone
Consider this! With the change related to Oxycontin my problem is the OP type of Medication just doesn't work! So... My doctor has added additonal 30mg Oxycodone's to my monthly medication list. The problem we are having is coming up with a near equal dosage. Depending upon which phamacist you talk to we are getting differnet answers. It doesn't matter howe many tablets you are prescribed the research is done by considering one 80mg Oxycodone and trying to come up wit hthe equal dosage using 30mg Oxycodone. Opinion's - One 80mg Oxycontin is supposed to last 12 hours giving 80 mg of oxycodone for the ful 12 hours, so if that is true then there has to be 960mg. of Oxycodone in each 80 mg Oxycontin. 30mg of Oxycodone tablets are prescribed for 3 - 4 hours. So it would take ...
