How Long Will 1 Oxycontin Stay In Your System After Taking Cleansing Pills
If I take 1 oxy on sat. night and then next day took 3 cleansing pills, and cranberry pills will my udt be clean on monday ## The major route of oxycodone excretion is in the urine (so taking the cranberry pills was a good option). The effects of oxycodone last up to 4 hours after use. The length of time following drug use for which a positive result may occur is dependent upon several factors including the frequency and amount of usage, metabolic rate, excretion rate, drug half-life, and the drug user’s age, weight, activity, and diet. Taking any of sort of detox (cleansing) pills will definitely speed up the excretion rate. I don't know what brand you're using or its strength or quality, but it will certainly be more helpful than nothing at all even if you d...

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, ...

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.

can you smoke oxycontin op 80
just curious ## No, the new Oxycontin OP have been specially designed to help prevent such abuse of the medication. Even if you try to crush, chew or dissolve them, they retain their time released properties. They work the same as the originals and may still cause the same side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions? ## Verwon, not trying to be rude but yes u can smoke them. I am a daily oc 80 abuser (smoker) and I have Ben buying the new ops on the street and smoking them.

I guess they were aiming the abuse at the snorters and or crushers cheered extra. ## How do you smoke the op's? ## I agree with Carson. I just got them today for th...

CAN YOU INJECT TARGINACT, ITS 1OMG OXYCONTIN AND 5MG NALOXONE TO PREVENT CONSTIPATION? AN OVAL PILL ## It specifically says on the information leaflet that you should NOT inject Targinact. As it it a slow-release tablet an injection would be a significant overdose and likely to result in death. It is possible to get the two drugs seperately and when it is given alone Naloxone is normally given in injection form but please do not inject Targinact. ## The naloxone is not to prevent is a narcotic antagonist added to he pill to prevent abuse....such as crushing it and injecting it. Either way, it is not safe as overdose is highly probable and I do believe the naloxone would send you into precipitated withdrawls. Hence the reason for the use of naloxone added to a narcotic...

did they replace all the original oxycontin with this new crush resistance formula
I heard that all the pharmacy replaced all the original oxycontin (OC) with this new formula that prevents anyone from crushing it. The new pills says OP on the one side instead of it saying OC. And if you still can get the original oxycontin (OC) do you now need to request it from your doctor so he can write you a prescription for the original oxycontin (the pill that says OC on one side instead of it saying OP ## The original Oxycontin has been discontinued and will no longer be available. Once pharmacies are out of their current stock, there will not longer be a supply of it out there. The new Oxycontin OP has been specially designed to prevent abuse, by retaining its time released properties, even if crushed or chewed. Otherwise, for pain, it works the same and still has the same si...

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...

Oxycontin = Oxycodone
Consider this! With the change related to Oxycontin my problem is the OP type of Medication just doesn't work! So... My doctor has added additonal 30mg Oxycodone's to my monthly medication list. The problem we are having is coming up with a near equal dosage. Depending upon which phamacist you talk to we are getting differnet answers. It doesn't matter howe many tablets you are prescribed the research is done by considering one 80mg Oxycodone and trying to come up wit hthe equal dosage using 30mg Oxycodone. Opinion's - One 80mg Oxycontin is supposed to last 12 hours giving 80 mg of oxycodone for the ful 12 hours, so if that is true then there has to be 960mg. of Oxycodone in each 80 mg Oxycontin. 30mg of Oxycodone tablets are prescribed for 3 - 4 hours. So it would take ...

What Are The best Medications To Take If Having Withdrawals From OxyContin?
I've been prescribed a large dose of OxyContin, 360 mgs. per day, + 180 mgs. of Roxycodone per day. Both have been upped over three years for several problems related to my bones, and now cancer. I get terrified that I'll lose them and if I do, will the Drs. replace them? If not, what would be prescribed to get me through the withdrawals? I have heard withdrawals are horrendous and can't imagine going through that on top of cancer and my other issues. I've asked and have been told to just NEVER lose or misplace them. The rules and regulations of the pain management clinic I go to state over and over that they do not replace lost or stolen medications and do not refill early. What does someone do if it does happen? I live in CT. ## If your meds are stolen call the cops an...

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...

fatigue 1 month after opiate withdrawal
I've tried every sleeping med both OTC and prescription. I'm so exhausted I'm wondering why I quit taking the oxycontin/oxycodone. I know that sounds bad but I'm so tired of feeling like this. I feel suicidal sometimes and depressed most of the time. I know it's just exhaustion and I keep reading that it gets better but honestly I don't know how much more I can take... ## Hello, Robin! How are you? If it's been a month, you should turn the corner soon and start to see an improvement. I'm saying this from experience, too. I was on pain management for years and quit cold turkey. It all really does get better shortly after the one month mark. Have you considered trying an antidepressant for a few weeks to help? They are not habit forming and may really help ...

how long does it take to work oxycontin 80 mg / roxidone 30
If I take an OxyContin 80 mg at 10 PM Monday night, and on Tuesday morning I take one 80 mg + one 30 mg Oxycodone at 7 AM would it be working in my body by 8:30 that morning? Thanks Lonnie ## Yes, based on your dosage schedule I'd say it would definitely be working in your body by then, regardless of whether you take immediate release or a delayed release formulation. For instance, conventional oxycodone has a peak plasma concentration in your blood stream of about 1 hour after taking it, whereas the time-released version would reach its peak after about 3 hours. Half life can be up to about 4 hours, and traces of it remain in your body for up to 72 hours (but by that time you would probably have taken your next dose if you are on a regular pain management schedule). Hope this helps!

Oxycontin OP Duration 40mg Cut in Half
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 ...
