oxycontin 15mg is there something else I can take?
Post a Reply
I am seeing a pain management doctor right now she has me on 15 milligrams of oxycontin the extended relief. I called her and told her that it was not working and she said the next time I come in maybe that she would up the dosage. I've been experiencing headaches major mood swings. One minute I'm happy the next minute I'm crying and then the next minute I'm a raging lunatic. I I want to be on something that is long lasting, I've already been the Norco in the percocet route. Those were not strong enough for me. Is there anything that I can ask the doctor about that is longer lasting? That is also not extended release, and will last longer to make my pain stay away longer? Thanks for any help.

I went from 30mg of oxycontin to 20mg of oxycontin to Percocet 10-325 is my doses begin lower ## If your doctor approves, you can cut these tablets to continue lowering your dose, since the Percocet isn't time released. Alternatively, your doctor could also prescribe a lower dose for you. 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. How long have you been taking it?

How Long Does The Oxycontin 80mg op to work
10 Replies RSS
how long does it take a oxycontin 80mg op to start working after you swallow it ## About 15 to 20 minutes, though it can vary some depending on your own body, as well as if you've recently eaten. Learn more Oxycodone details here. It is a time released formulation, so it won't have as much of an immediate effect as the regular or instant release, though. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a Rx for OxyContin which is a month old. Can I still have it filled? ## Prescriptions are usually able to be filled for up to one year from the date it was issued. ## After an hour it's fully kicked in for me. ## I take those but I find chewing them makes them come on faster. Also it works better for me. ## I'm asking this for a friend of mine who takes 30s 3 times a day....

Opiates and heroin
2 Replies RSS
A friend of mine is prescribed 300mg oxycontin and 60mg oxycodone daily..so for whatever reason 4 months ago they completely stopped taking and started abusing heroin....question is they have a drug urinalsys this week and they are completely worried about it showing up on the test? I told them from all my reading that weather its oxycontin or heroin it will all show up as opiates on the test and it wont differentiate between the 2. Was I correct with what I told them? That just Opiates and a range will show or do I not know what Im talking about?? TY ## Hi Joey, I think your answer is spot on when it comes to standard drug screening. While it's true that any drug can be specifically tested for, most standardized drug tests cannot differentiate between the likes of a drug class vs d...

Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
142 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 ...

Is there a generic for Brand Name OXYCONTIN EXTENDED RELEASE?
12 Replies RSS
The cost is way too high. I though generic oxycontin was coming back. Does anyone have an update? ## Hi, Marty! No, there isn't a generic and under the current regulations there won't be one any time soon. Since it is such a highly abused medication that has an extremely high rate of addiction, theft and diversion, the generics were removed from the market to help keep better control of the supply. If there is only one manufacturer, then it is much easier to know exactly how much has been manufactured, where it's being stored, where it's being shipped and etc. If you need a cheaper medication for pain control that is still time released, you may want to ask your doctor about trying MS Contin, it is a time released formulation of Morphine and there are generics of it avai...

Is diloded stronger than oxycontin? Norco?
15 Replies RSS
I am wondering if diloded is stronger than oxycontin? morphine? norco? norco 10/325? liquid 40ml norco 2.5mg/5ml? ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone. That said, it is a potent narcotic, and what it is stronger than depends on the dosage of each. It is not stronger than most dosages of Oxycodone, but is stronger than some. Oxycodone is the strongest product on the market approved to treat pain. Whether it is stronger than the others also depends on what dose of the Dilaudid you're asking about. Was this prescribed for you? You can read more about it here: ## Actually, Opana (oxymorphone) is about 2 to 3 times stronger than oxycodone, or contin. I went from a oxy 30mg ER to an Opana 10mg and have had the best results as far as pain relief. ## can you list the lea...

took8mg subutex for 6 mos.stopping subutex.will 3 30mg oxycontin relieve the witydrawals ? ## Yes it will help WD that's for sure, but it might just set you on the path of being addicted to oxy. If you are planning on getting off and are already in WD try your hardest to go on because taking the oxy will just start you all over with the withdrawals when you run out of the oxy. ## Thx. I have had minor wd but not till the 4th day. I have heard of paws also. To your concern of getting addicted again, it is so much easier for me to cut oxys than bups. In 6 months of subutex i totally deteriorated, weak, depressed, etc. All side effects. The drug is not right to have such horrendous wd. Thanks

Sandoz 80mg Oxy No Imprint
1 Reply RSS
My doctor prescribed me 5mg endone and 20mg oxycontin on rare occasions when I knew I was going to need them. This was after months of physio, MRIs, and alternative meds. He recently retired, so I went to see his replacement. He spent about 30 seconds looking at my past scripts and said "you're clearly a drug addict, I'm not prescribing any of these," and kicked me out of the practice. So I asked around and eventually found Sandoz 80mg oxycodone (contin). They are still in blister packs, white on top, printed foil on the bottom, with the writing: Oxycodone Sandoze Oxycodone HCl 80mg Modified Release The pills are a darkish green, which can be scratched off to reveal a hard pressed white pill. My main concern, there is no stamp/imprint on the pill. Is that possible? Are t...

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 a 80 op I want to take it but not loose the medicine or affect. ## Oxycontin OP cannot be crush, chewed or broken down.
