Can't find oxycontin 60mg at any pharmacy
2 Replies RSS
I am recovering from an intense spinal surgery and was given an rx for 60 mg oxycontin. I filled it last month at my regular CVS, but they said it was removed from the books, they even called other CVS who checked and said it was removed from their books as well, guessing that CVS doesn't carry it anymore. After checking with 10 different pharmacies, no one has it. One said they haven't had to order that in a long time. I didn't think it was that unusual. But where in the world can I get this filled? Walgreens is not an option as they are not a part of my insurance plan. ## I went to a local low cost pharmacy. They had and could order it. The cost was 600. But because insurance was charged from cvs 1600 a month they would not pay 600. They would only pay 300. I got member se...

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
197 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 OP Duration 40mg Cut in Half
63 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 ...

Oxycontin Drug Equivalent
1 Reply RSS
I am currently taking three 20mg oxycontin a day. Due to insurance reasons the Dr wants to switch me to dilaudid or morphine er. Given the choice, which one gives better pain relief and at what dose would be the equivalent to my 60 mg of oxy which is not currently controlling the pain? Thank you. ## Dilaudid is the more potent of the 2, so you'd have to take less of it to be equal to your current dose or Oxycodone or to raise it for more pain relief. According to NIH tables, it would only take 7.5mgs of it to equal each 20mgs of Oxycodone. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

oxycontin op 30 mg
38 Replies RSS
iv been taking oxycontin 30mg with oc on them - this time i got oxycontin 30 with op on them and they seem to make me sick. What is the difference? ## Oxycontin OP is brand new to the market and is replacing the regular Oxycontin. The only difference is that the Oxycontin OP has been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. Even if someone tries to crush or chew it, it will retain its time released properties. Otherwise, it works the same and has the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. I am not certain why it would be making you sick, as compared to the other ones, have you tried contacting your doctor or pharmacist about it? ## the new pill u are now getting is a new formula of the old oc and is supposed to be tamper proof so people cant abuse them, an...

insurance company refusing to pay for oxycontin
1 Reply RSS
insurance company now won't pay for chronic pain meds. (oxycontin) noting all kinds of reasons which I answered. It started with pre authorization, then reduced dosage, (have had same dosage for four years). I have never misused or tried to get meds. early. I know this is an abused medication but I have to go to work every day and this allows me to do so. They say I have a right to appeal and have looked for legal help but nobody will take case. Any help would be appreciated. I can't afford $900.00 per month. ## Hello, Josh! How are you? I am sorry about the problems you're having, that's horrible. As to the legal help, when the insurance company says you have the right to appeal, that is an internal process that you handle with them, they will tell you what information ...

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. This is Blue Sheild PPO by: "Covered California" and I pay them $536.22 a month for their coverage. I only need this month to be covered as my husband gets new coverage from his new job in 10 days.

Oxycontin damaged my teeth
715 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...

Help with substitute for New 20mg Oxycontin
5 Replies RSS
20mg Oxycontin OP doesn't seem to work as well for me. I take it 3 times a day with 15mg oxycodone breakthru. Can anyone suggest a replacement for the 20mg's. Would a 15mg oxycodone and a 5 mg oxycodone work as well. Thanks so much for your help. ## It would be the same dosage, but since those ones are not time released, it would not last as long to relieve your pain, so such a dosage would have to be taken more frequently. Generally the regular formulations have to be taken 3 to 4 times a day, as opposed to the every 12 hours that you take Oxycontin. There have been many complaints regarding the new formulation not being as effective as the original, as well as comments that it caused odd side effects. If you had a problem with it, I suggest reporting them to both Purdue and th...

Questions about OxyContin 20mg & it's equavalentcy..
4 Replies RSS
Hi..I am currently taking OxyContin 20mg 3xdaily, Percocet, Zanaflex, Neurontin & Trazodone for the chronic pain that I've been suffering for for over 13 years. It's a debilitating illness (RSD/CRPS) and has only gotten worse over time. Now it effects every single part of my body. I can't increase the OxyContin because it is not avail in generic and I can't afford to continue to pay out $475 every mth for 90 pills so I need to find something that will help relieve the pain just as good as the OxyContin, if not better. Any opinions?!? (The OxyContin is the best pain med that has helped my pain & so thankful my pain management doctor suggested it...tho it bugs me that I can't increase it bc of the price) I am also quite nervous about stopping them because of wi...

about Oxycontin without Tylenol
2 Replies RSS
I was taking Percocet 10and I have Hepatitis C my doctor changed it to Oxycontin when I went to get this filled for 30 pills my insurance would not cover it it cost $90 so what other medication narcotic can I ask my doctor for that does not have Tylenol in it? I would appreciate an answer thank you so much. ## Wow! I am so sorry, that's horrible. Prices have jumped so horribly this year. Oxycontin isn't available as a generic, but the regular formulation of Oxycodone is, so you may want to ask your doctor about possibly trying it. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

Out of my OxyContin
5 Replies RSS
I pulled a good one. My RXs were not in sync; one for extended release one week and the other immediate release the next. So I'm out waiting and going through hell. All because I let my pharmacy only give me enough for 3 weeks. Now they say they can't give me the ones they kept. I really didn't know it was going to be that way. Has anyone ever had this happen? ## Yes, that is normal pharmacy policy for controlled substances. You'll need a new prescription from your doctor to get the rest, or to wait until your next fill time. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It just...

OxyContin 80 mg OC Round Green pill, OC one side 80other
2 Replies RSS
I recently got 80mg OC OxyContin that are green but they do not help me at all almost as if they were fake, does anyone know about them? Are the OC coming back? I need to know right away! Thanks so much ! ## No, at this time Purdue has no intention of bringing the original formulation back to market. If that's what you have, they are either fake or extremely old and have lost efficacy, as medications tend to do over time. The FDA classifies Oxycontin 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.

Where Can You Buy Legal Drugs With A Perscription That Has The Old Oxycontin
7 Replies RSS
I am trying to find the OLD oxycontin SOME WHERE, ANYWHERE they worked, the new ones do not and have alot of side effects could any one give me the answer, can you buy them from Canada or where can I get them at. the doctor will not even raise the medicine for the break through pain. People are desperate. ## There were some places that still had a supply of them available, due to already having a stock on hand, before Purdue changed the formulation, but I don't have any specific information on any pharmacies that still do, either online or off. Purdue manufactured both the original formula and the new formulation and they discontinued the original, when they released the new one, so no one can get a stock of it in, once they exhaust their existing supply. Every pharmacy will have to...

The new Oxycontin with the imprint OP compared to the old Oxycontin with the old imprint OC
82 Replies RSS
I got my Oxycontin (name brand) today and thought i had gotten the generic because it had OP imprinted on it instead of th regular OC imprinted on it. I ask my phamacist what was going on and he said that Oxycontin had changed their logo. I noticed the pill was slighly bigger so when i took my pill i noticed it give me heartburn really bad just like the generic did when i tried the generic. Now i am in pain, i have the heartburn, and i don't know if i will be able to hold this new formular down because i am so sick at my stomach. Do you think Purdue will ever change the formula of Oxycontin back to the original? I sure hope so. I am going to start a petition to get the old formula back again.
