Fentanyl Patch 75 mcg vs OxyContin 120 mg
1 Reply RSS
Doctor just took me off 120 mg OxyContin daily and switched me to Fentanyl 75 mcg. What can I expect as far as differences in the effects? Are these two separate doses equal in strength? ## Yes, Fentanyl is the strongest opiate narcotic that is available. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. However, the only way to discover how well it will work for you is by trying it. Have you started using it, yet?

Does oxycontin, and percocet show up the same in a 12panel hair drug screen? ## Yes, the active narcotic in both is Oxycodone, so they would both show up the same on any drug screen. Since there are narcotic analgesics, they may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Will heroin show up like oxycodone ## I took one narco last night for a broken tooth had a hair test at 9am will it show up in my test

Oxycontin damaged my teeth
712 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...

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
179 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...

oxycontin 10mg 2x a day vs. hydrocodone 5/325 every 6 hours
3 Replies RSS
I suffer from cervical stenosis and severe back pain that may require surgery. I am also suffering from a mental illness/deep depression/anxiety. I take several meds for the latter. I had been prescribed hydrocodone 5/325 every six hours, and that worked great for my pain, and I didn't sleepy. Now since changing Pain Mgmt Specialist, he prescribes OxyContin 10mg 2x a day, and this makes me so sleepy, especially with all of my other medications. This new doctor said hydrocodone was not good to take with my mental illness, but he gives me OxyContin? I don't get it, clearly the OxyContin is worse for me if I'm sleepy all the time, at least I could function and stay awake on hydrocodone. I don't know what to do, my physiatrist has even written a letter stating the hydrocodon...

Does A Drug Test Show The Same Results If You Took Oxycontin Or Oxycodone
18 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...

need to know what legit pharmacies are still carrying Oxycontin 40 mg Genrics in central coast california ## There is no generic Oxycontin, anywhere in the U.S. There are some provided by Ethex, however, they are just licensed distributors for Purdue and the stuff you get that has their name on it is the same stuff manufactured by Purdue. For awhile, they have still had a supply of the original Oxycontin OC, however, since Purdue has discontinued it, once their supply is exhausted, Ethex will also only be able to provide the new Oxycontin OP. I realize many people are unhappy about this change, there have been many reports that the new Oxycontin OP does not work as well as the original and that is caused odd side effects, however, the fact of the matter is that soon, no one will be able...

5 Replies RSS
Every year we try to find an insurance company to help out with paying for these and they are way over our heads ## Purdue Pharma does have a patient assistance program, that may be able to help you, but only if you have no other type of prescription insurance. The other criteria include that you must be a U.S. resident and have an income at, or below 200% of the federal poverty level. His doctor would need to request an application and there are sections that both the doctor and patient have to sign, the doctor then sends the application with a prescription attached. If you meet the eligibility criteria, the medication will be shipped to your home. To get the application for the program, his doctor can call them at 1-800-599-6070. Are there any other comments or questions? ## I use my ...

Can Teeth Rot Because Of Oxycontin Use
19 Replies RSS
ive been on these for about 7 years and was just asking coz my teeth are slowly getting worse also on oxynorm amitriptoline seratail co-codamol and have just started on fentanyl patches please help ## Your teeth can be affected by many medications, especially narcotics. The problem is caused due to the fact that they tend to sap the minerals from your body, plus they cause dry mouth, which allows more bacteria to sit on your teeth. From the medications you are taking, all of the narcotics, the Oxycontin, Co-Codamol, Oxynorm and the Fentanyl can cause a loss of calcium, as well as dry mouth. And the Amitryptiline can also cause dry mouth as a side effect. Many people on long-term narcotic pain management end up with severe dental issues and a lot have lost all their teeth and required de...

Has anyone had experience with the Endo Brand Oxy? I usually take the Barnd Name only but they were out. It doesn't seem to be as strong, but of course the pharmacist says, They're all the same! ## Found Tablet with light green and oval 99 on top and 33 other side. ## The generic is a weaker form than the brand name. I'm not sure if maybe the time release is different or the pain mix is different but they are different I know a couple of people who take them and they all have the same thing to say. ## yes i get the endo and they are great ## I want to see the image of a brand name 40 mg OxyContin looks like I think they giving genric and what imprint is on it

Oxycontin OP Duration 40mg Cut in Half
59 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 ...

I have been taking OxyContin for a number of years when I never healed from an implanted morphine pump (due to inability to make antibodies). I never had stomach problems until the reformulation with the plastic coating. My stomach problem is getting worse over time. Is this from the plastic in the OxyContin?

I have chronic pain and have been on pain meds for around 20 years. No, I am not a drug addict. I have quit taking pain meds many times for several months at a time. The time I did that I was literally bed ridden which didn't go over well with my family. They begged me to go back to the doctor and get back on my pain meds. At this point I have been with my doctor for 4-5 years now only because my PCP would not increase my pain meds and I so desperately needed it to be increased. So I am at the point again where I need my meds increased and my pain doctor has only increased me one time around two years ago. Now I feel as if I am not on any medication at all. I currently am prescribed 4 - 20 mg OxyContin, 8 - 10/325 mg Norco and 8 - 350 mg Carisoprdol. The truth is (by the way I'v...

Oxycontin Profuse Sweating
51 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...

They are very small, round and orange. One side has a D on it and a 2 on the other. I believe he has a narcotic pain killer addiction and I would like to know what these are before I confront him on this. ## what happened to all the comments? ## I cannot find a listing for this in any of our prescription drug resources.
