Does Oxycontin And Oxycodone Show Up The Same N A Drug Urine Test
89 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...

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 ...

oxycontin formulary new insurance

oxcodone IR 30mg to replace oxycontin CR 40mg no insurance on oxycontin ## Hello, Freefall! How are you? Your doctor should be able to prescribe the regular release Oxycodone for you, in lieu of the Oxycontin. However, you should be aware that there is no immediate release in these higher dosages, it is only available as a capsule in 5mgs. 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. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? If the 40mg twice a day has been controlling your pain, they'll likely want to try to keep you as close to that dosage as possibly.

Oxycontin = Oxycodone
20 Replies RSS
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 ...

Please help, I'm out of my 80mg. Oxycontins, I take 3 a day and I take Between 4-8 Norco's for break thru pain. With insurance change, they want $300 for RX plus a $250 deductible up front for name brand medication.

Oxycontin Original Formula

I just filled my prescription for OxyContin and much to my surprise got the old formula. I went online to confirm and sure enough it is the old formula with "OC" on one side and the number n the other. Is Pharma going back to the old formula or was this just a "one off" circumstance? ## No, they aren't returning to manufacturing the old formula, but if a place still has some of it in stock, they are still allowed to dispense them. Thus, you probably just got a fill of some that were still lingering on a shelf somewhere. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## What is "the number n"?

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 ...

yellow round pill no markings 40 mg oxys
1 Reply RSS
I was told that these yellow round pills are 40 mg oxycontin (oxycodone), where are they from, I know they are not from the U.S, if there real, but does any one know what they could be? or anything about these yellow round pill? ## @momtg, Without an imprint to signify what it is, who makes it, or how much of whatever it is it contains, determining anything at all is merely speculation. However many pain patients who are unable to receive appropriate care in the US often resort to finding their medication(s) off the internet. And I do know that the country of India is a big player in this game of web-based pharmacies, importing both counterfeits and real meds alike. So depending on how you came across this pill, that possibility might be something to take into account upon determining i...

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...

If I have been taking oxycontin everyday for about a month, how long will it take to get out of my system? I have a drug test next Friday afternoon, and it's a ten panel test. What are the chances of it showing up if I stop taking them today? ## I go 5 days without and my urine tests clean. Now I'm in Canada so I dunno if the tests r different. I know people who go 3 days and come out clean but the longer the better I'd say 5-7 days to b safe. Good luck :) ## Does anyone have jerk like seizures while sleeping after a month of stopping zanax? I do and I don't know why, I'm perfectly healthy mentally,kinda scary ## Zantax is one of the most dangerous drugs to come off of.. Sezuires are absolutely a number one side effect of zantax withdrawal. Be careful.
