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 ...

pain management shreveport
Does anyone know of any primary care physicians in the Shreveport/Bossier City/Haughton/Minden area that do pain management? I have been going to a pain management doctor here in Shreveport for about 6 years now, but it is just getting to expensive. He refuses to to go any higher on my dosage of Oxycontin, which is 30 mg 3 times a day. And he will not give me anything for break through pain. I am on Medicaid so I have to pay him out of pocket. Medicaid pays for 60 of my oxy's, but I have to pay for the other 30. If I knew of a primary care physician that accepts does some pain management and also accepts medicaid it would be a really big help. I'd really appreciate anyone that could help me out and answer this. Thank you. ## There aren't any PCP's who do Pain Management ...

oxycotin teva
I was involved in a car accient last year and am now working with a Pain Manage clinic. I have had injections upon injections, epiderals, blah blah and now they belive it is a tear in my disc between L4 and L5. Needless to say VERY painful. The most recent visit has placed me on Oxy AGAIN. I acutally took myself off them a few months ago because the pain was not getting ANY less... actually the same if not worse regardless of how many or mg increase. At 20 mg 2 X day I said I am done and started to only take 1 them none. That was miserable... Switched Doctors.. told him all of this and what does he do .. BACK ON THE OXY.. I have found that Percocet 7.5/325 2 pills 3 X day work the best AND it I don't have bad pain I don't HAVE to take it. I am so frustrated and I have called the...

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...

The new Oxycontin with the imprint OP compared to the old Oxycontin with the old imprint OC
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. Anyone interested in singing it please let me know. Loretta Sloan 630 Bird Road Magnolia, K...

how to inject 30 mg op oxycontin
I've been injecting oxycontin oc with different mgs. and now I just recieved these new oxycontins that are 30 mgs. op and I cant get them to break down so that I can inject them I'm really going through some terrible withdraws. can some one please give me some advice so that I can? Thank you ## I think I heard that the makers of Oxycontin (Purdue/Pharma) just changed their Oxycontin tablets with some sort of a plastic covering. I read about it about six months ago, saying that they will be moving to this new formula. It is supposed to curb abuse of the medication. Obviously it is working! Sorry dude. ## It is not a plastic, since that could not be broken down by the human body. However, yes they cannot be broken down to be abused, like the previous Oxycontin could be. Crushing, ...

I just moved to Daytona Beach/Port Orange FL and need to find a reputable doctor who can work with my doctor to make sure I get the medication I have been taking for over 20 years. I suffer from severe, chronic pain due to Fibromyalgia, DDD, chronic migraines, sciatica, COPD, neck and ankle injury and rheumatoid arthritis without my medication I cannot function.

80 mg oxy p
Im from toronto n got a 80mg green oxy with 80 on one side and a sigle p on othet! If this a real 80? ## need pain meds for herniated disk ## Hi Frnk, The closest match I've been able to locate is Oxycontin (80 mg). It is a round green pill with the imprint '80' on one side and 'OP' on the other. Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Oxycontin; Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from poppy-derived thebaine. It is a narcotic analgesic generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain. It is manufactured by Purdue Pharma and has a National Drug Code of 59011-0480. Maybe the O on your pill got smudged off? Does it look as if it has been tampered with? You can learn more about this drug on the page for OxyContin Details ## It is real. Its a new Cana...

Oxy P On One Side
I GOT A OXY WITH P ON ONE SIDE AND 80 ON THE OTHER SIDE IS THIS A FAKE ONE ## From what I could gather, this is more than likely a fake version of the "OP 80" Oxycontin tablet. There appears to be virtually no information to be found on it anywhere online.....other than another person trying to figure out what it was as well. Lol The real Oxycontin (80mg) should also be round in shape and green in color, matching the info below: Manufacturer: Purdue Pharma LP National Drug Code (NDC): 59011-0480 I hope this helps to answer your question! ## Are you in canada? Cuz that could be one of the generic oxy's if you're in canada. If so, then that could very well be the PharmaScience controlled release oxycodone tablets. ## The oxys with a "P" on one side and the 40 or wh...

Tooth decay and soft enamel on teeth-30 mg. oxycodone
I was assaulted resulting in all ribs broken on L side and damage to Pelvic Bone. I was prescribed 3 10/325 oxycodone, and took them for about 10 months. I suddenly noticed small black or brown lines at the gum line. I took a dental tool (sold at local pharmacy) to see what it was and realized the enamel was so soft I could easily just scrape it off. I went to my DDS and she was horrified as I had had an appointed right before the injury and my teeth were normal. Now I see dark brown areas around the majority of my teeth at the gum line. I am on Social Security which leaves no $ for dental work. Has anyone attempted any kind of cure in an attempt to stop the progression? I was thinking like Vit C or anything. I have been off them 2 mos. and plan to see DDS soon, but from reading this fo...

Oxycontin Reformulation op
These pills do not work for pain, the hospitals are not using it for pain control after surgery because people are screaming of no pain relief. Purdue Pharma did the change out slowly by zip codes so they could handle the complaints they take your info, they say they will pray for you they are sorry they had to do something to control the problem. It was approved under it's old license. Complain to the FDA about any problems associated with these drugs. The real oc's are still world wide because other countries don't allow their citizens to be cheated they make the manufacturer relicense. Canada is the way to go. Walmart Sannich road has a walmart pharmacy that carries the oxycontin in the original formula for 120 eighties it is 500.00 US. Good luck you will need a passport ...

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...
