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 ...

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...

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. Side effects remain the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Read more: Are there any questions? ## I am not a professional health care provider but you do get a high from the op pills as I have experienced it before... The high usuaally lasts about 2 to 4 hours for some reason it varies different times when I take it!! You do experience side effcts from it longer than that but the actual high is 2-4 hours!! ## WRONG! its an opiate and will get u high as such. ## I am on a methadone clinic. I missed two days and got pretty sick. I was on 120 mg. I couldn't find any on the st...

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...

Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
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 Profuse Sweating Sweat Sweats
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...

oxycontin 60mg op time release causing discomfort
Since I started the 60mg op I have been feeling lots of discomfort in my chest, like pressure against my heart like a heart attack, but what I think is going on is it's backing up my bowels causing all this discomfort I never felt when I was just on norco. I've read here where op causes constipation, I'm wondering if this could be the reason for all the discomfort I'm in? I've noticed a change in my bowel movements, like smaller sized stools, not nearly as much is coming out like it used to do. Should I consider using a stool softener or a laxative to see if my discomfort subsides or should I head to the ER and say I'm having a heart attack only to find out I've got side effects happening related to this new drug I'm on? This feeling of constant pressure is

is oxycotin an opiate
this treatment has worked for me in the past and I am looking to work again in the future hey if it works then it works that's ALL I HAVE YO SAY I want bACK ON THE OXy trEATMENT ## Hi Nick! yes, OxyContin is a narcotic. It's used to treat moderate to severe pain. ## P.S. I mean it is an opiate. ## Hello, Nick! How are you? Just to clarify what Cats68 has said, because she is so very helpful, Oxycontin is actually both, it's a narcotic opiate. This is 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. What type of treatment are you referring to?

I m confused and need help with what I need to do....
Please help! I was prescribed OxyContin 40mg at first 1 every 12 hrs. After about 1-1/2 yrs the dr upped my dose to 40 mg 1 every 6 hrs due to the medication not helping with my pain as much as before. So the drs answer was to "increase the frequency of the medication/ double it!) and this took me quite a while to get use to the drugged feeling caused by the increase but eventually I did. The prescribing dr left the practice after about 2yrs. Apparently now I'm learning this prescribing history is why! However I have never been told this until yesterday! Anyway, Then another dr from the same practice kept prescribing the exact same way (40mg every 6hrs) that dr passed away and another dr from same practice took over my case again and has written the exact same prescription (40mg Ox

How to Break Down Oxycontin OP for Snorting
I found out how. To break down the oxycontin op so that they can be snorted. Step 1: Step 7: Enjoy!! :) It may take a few tries, but once you get the general idea, you will find what works best for you. I've been doing it this way and now im pretty damn good at it and I've been able to get a nice high and a decent drip this way. I find that its much more convenient to do this to a bunch of pills at a time and then just store what you don't use right away in a little container for later so you don't have to do all this work everytime you do a pill. I really hope I was able to help all of you out. It may take a little trial and error at first before you get it perfect... so until you do, only use one pill at a time so you don't waste all of them if you make any mistake...

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