Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
140 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...

switching back to original form ## Would you care to elaborate? What is your source? ## Yes, we would like more details on this.

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

Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
170 Replies RSS
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 ...

oxycontin round blue pill with 422 on one side and scored ob
1 Reply RSS
Round blue pill scored on one side and 422 on the other side ## Hi Judith, Unfortunately I haven't located any specific details on an Oxycontin marked with 442, but I think it's possible that you may have gotten the imprint backwards. From what I could gather, a round blue pill that is scored on one side and has 224 on the other is identified as Oxycodone 30mgs with a National Drug Code of 57664-0224. For additional verification, the tablet itself is approximately 8mm in size. If this particular pill doesn't seem like a match, you can also contact its manufacturer (Sun Pharma) and ask if they make one with 422 instead of 224: sunpharma.com/contact I hope this helps!

Oxycontin OP Duration 40mg Cut in Half
32 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 ...

What Are The best Medications To Take If Having Withdrawals From OxyContin?
5 Replies RSS
I've been prescribed a large dose of OxyContin, 360 mgs. per day, + 180 mgs. of Roxycodone per day. Both have been upped over three years for several problems related to my bones, and now cancer. I get terrified that I'll lose them and if I do, will the Drs. replace them? If not, what would be prescribed to get me through the withdrawals? I have heard withdrawals are horrendous and can't imagine going through that on top of cancer and my other issues. I've asked and have been told to just NEVER lose or misplace them. The rules and regulations of the pain management clinic I go to state over and over that they do not replace lost or stolen medications and do not refill early. What does someone do if it does happen? I live in CT. ## If your meds are stolen call the cops an...

Will Oxycontin Show Up In A Ua 4 Hours After Taking It
4 Replies RSS
my doctor is going to do a UA to see if I am taking my oxycontin as prescribed. How long after taking a 30mg oxycontin will it show in my UA? ## I am not certain of the exact time frame for this and what you may actually run into, if you haven't been taking them as prescribed is not having the right levels in your body, if it is detected. Generally, when you are prescribed a certain dosage to be taken at certain intervals, they will expect the amount of it in your urine to fall within a certain range and anything outside of that range can alert them to a problem. Are there any other questions? ## It honestly depends on the type of test he's having done add well. If he does a strip you will show up soon...soon as in the same day I'd assume. Even when I didn't want it to.....

oxycontin 12 hour time release 2x day
6 Replies RSS
My tolerance is of course increasing to this prescription and I can not get a new stronger does from my Doctor as this med facility has strong rules against it. So since this does wears off after 6 - 8 hours can't I basically just increase to 3X/day by taking it every 8 hours instead? Here's a strange twist to my story: My Dr. said no to an increase in dosage and referred me to an outside pain specialist for my pain meds BUT! I also noticed that for the last two months my monthly prescription labeled for 60 tabs actually has about a weeks worth of extra oxy's. I know I'm not missing any doses. Any opinions? ## Hello, B Hughes! How are you? If you up your dosage on your own, you're going to run out early, which could end up with your doctor flagging you as an abuser/a...

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.

It seems like you're mistaking the pill being described here, because there are Oxycodone 15mgs which also have M 15 as the imprint ... HOWEVER ... the pills are a very very light green (almost white), the M is by itself in a box on one side, and the 15 is above a score mark on the other.

I was on the Oxycontin 80mg.3xaday for 16 yrs. I have been tried on alot of other things . I went on methadone w/2 40mg of oxy then they quit making the methadone that iI took. None of the kadian or other things in that class have worked. I am now taking ms contin 100mg. a day w/15 mg.2x a day it is not enough and my Dr. who gave me a hard time off and on about the oxy's now refuses to do the irs that are still available with any other meds. I've took the opana and at the time it seemed fine but pricey that has beeen a couple of years ago just to see. They have a cap I did not take the er's though. My Dr. is funny about writing large numbers of meds. This ms contin could work but he will not for instance give 60 more mgs. He would rater write 200mgs.3x a day because of amts....

can you cut oxycontin half or quarters?
6 Replies RSS
Have 80 mg oxycodone but scared to take that much, can I cut in half,? Quarters? ## Hello, Richie! How are you? No, Oxycontin is a time released formulation of Oxycodone and cutting it could cause you to get too much of the medication, at once. It should be taken intact. The FDA lists this medication as being 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 there anything else I can help with? ## I just found out that I am pregnant. I am prescribed oxycontin OP 60mg 3x daily. SSince I have found out, I reduced to 2x daily. I feel guilty even taking that, but the WD are really bad. My Dr. Is going to put me on 20mg and tapper me from there. I want to be off of these things b...

a want to see what a oxycontin 80 op & co brand and genic picture, as well as this pill i found on the ground outside in my yard & I have a 13 yr. son it looks like the following description as follow's ## I don't have a picture to post for you. However, both the original Oxycontin and the new Oxycontin OP are round, light green tablets. They both have the number 80 on one side, then the original has OC on the opposite and the new product has OP on the opposite side. As to a generic, there is no generic of the Oxycontin available. There have been many legal battles about it and the one company that had legal right to distribute it, let their contract expire last year. If there are different markings on the pill you have, it could still be Oxycodone, but in a different fo...

40mg oxycontin er look a like pills
9 Replies RSS
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...

Oxycontin Profuse Sweating Sweat Sweats
38 Replies RSS
I have been on oxycontin for about 11 years for pain management. I take 80 to 100 mg per day in 20-30 mg doses orally. In the last couple of years I have developed a severe sweating problem...I will break into a sweat for no reason sometimes but usually upon any sort of stimulation physical or mental. I just went for a 10 minute walk and my shirt is soaked through...even the sleeves. If I play a set of music with my band, at the end of 40 minutes, I look like I stood in a shower with my clothes on. Is this normal as a side effect of oxycontin use? Anyone else experience anything like this? ## This can happen with the long-term use of most narcotics, because you are adding a chemical to your body and basically screwing with its function and chemistry. It can also occur with some antibiot...
