Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
203 Replies RSS
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 ...

small round 05 m green
1 Reply RSS
I found 2 pills both are green the larger one has D on one side and the #1 on the other side. The smaller one is round, green and either a W or and an M on the other side ## are these OxyContin or oxycodone. ## Hello, Squirt! How are you? That green tablet, with the 1 D marking is manufactured by Purdue Pharma and they list it as containing 1mg of Hydromorphone. The U.S. FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. As to the other one, I'm sorry, but in order to identify it for you, I need to know what the complete markings are that are on it. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you!

Oxycontin Vs Roxicodone
Post a Reply
I have a precipitation for Oxycontin 40 mg 3 times a day. One night before going to a doctor in the morning I took a Roxicodone 30 mg at 3:00 AM cause I didn't want to take my Oxycontin. The next morning around 7:45 - 8:00 AM my pain doctor did a urine drug test. I was told 2 different stories. One said the dr would be able to tell I took a Roxicodone and several pieces of advice said they are the same ingredients and the lab and dr would not be able to tell I took a Roxicodone. Can someone help me and tell me if the test result would come back that I took a Roxicodone rather than an Oxycontin?

My dr in mont al has been prescribing me 3 80mg oxycontin for several years.My visit last wk he refilled my scrip and said it could be the last because he was told there was diversion possibly coming from his practice.Btw that was 3 a day. If he doesn't refill my scrip on my next visit. I need to find a DR quick. Is it legal not to wean a patient off? The pain clinics in this town are full. ## If he cannot continue to prescribe, he should be able to refer to another doctor or clinic that will accept his current patients. Has he suggested anyone? And yes, it is perfectly legal for a doctor to stop prescribing your medications, even if they are habit forming, at any time. They are not obligated to treat you or prescribe anything, unless you are in life threatening danger. As a courtes...

oxycontin will the medicine still work if you threw up
1 Reply RSS
My son had knee surgery. He has been struggling with nausea. He was able to eat some crackers and sip water. Concerned that his pain block was wearing off he took 10mg of the prescribed OxyContin. He threw up 29 minutes later. I am concerned that this wasn't enough time for it to get in his system. I left a message for his doctor, but he hasn't returned the phone call- after hours on a Friday. ## Oxycontin is a time released formulation, so the medication is slowly released over a period of 12 hours. Thus, if he vomited up the pill, he would no longer be getting any of the medication. 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. His doctor may be able to pr...

Picture of a 40 mg brand name oxycontin
1 Reply RSS
I think my my drug store gave me generic instead of my regular brand name of OxyContin and charged me the same price ## Hello, Poopoo! How are you? At this time, there is no generic available for it. There is Oxycontin, which should have an OP on one side and 40 on the other side of the tablet, which is manufactured by Purdue Pharma and there is Xartemis, which is manufactured by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, I believe there are couple others the FDA has approved, but they are not commonly available, yet. However, all are name brand medications, in time released formulations, with abuse deterrent features. 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. What are the m...

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

Oxycontin OP Duration 40mg Cut in Half
54 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 Op Can You Still Get The Original
7 Replies RSS
I have a friend here in Florida who's mother is still getting 80's original formula. I seen the bottle which was filled on 12/29. So idk if it's a Dr's request thing which they claim or pharmacy still has them left. But him and her says Dr had to request it on script. Idk I just know I seen them last month. Any truth to this?? ## The only way she would still be able to get the original ones, with the OC marking is if the pharmacy still had some in stock. The doctors request would have no effect, because the company that manufactures them, Purdue Pharma has stopped manufacturing the original, however pharmacies are allowed to continue to dispense the original, until they run out. It could be that the pharmacy she is using has a supply and is making it last, as long as pos...

41 Replies RSS
Is this Newer version of Oxyconting OC vs OP the same, other that the obvious snorting, smoking etc..... ## Yes, it is supposed to be the same, time released Oxycodone, however there have been many complaints that it causes odd side effects and doesn't work as well. Side effects should be the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. If you have tried it, please post back with your experience. ## Makes me feel out of body. Not cool for me. I have been on this same med for over a year with great effectiveness and no side-effects. Now I have more pain, more headaches, and dizziness which I never had before. Thanks dope heads for causing a combat veteran to feel chronic pain again! ## I have been on oc for almost 6 years. 40 mg. and percocett for break through pain. Since they...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
617 Replies RSS
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...

I was on the Oxycontin 80mg.3xaday for 16 yrs. I have been tried on alot of other things . I went on methadone w/2 40mg of oxy then they quit making the methadone that iI took. None of the kadian or other things in that class have worked.

Oxycontin Original Formula

I just filled my prescription for OxyContin and much to my surprise got the old formula. I went online to confirm and sure enough it is the old formula with "OC" on one side and the number n the other. Is Pharma going back to the old formula or was this just a "one off" circumstance? ## No, they aren't returning to manufacturing the old formula, but if a place still has some of it in stock, they are still allowed to dispense them. Thus, you probably just got a fill of some that were still lingering on a shelf somewhere. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## What is "the number n"?

HOWEVER ... the pills are a very very light green (almost white), the M is by itself in a box on one side, and the 15 is above a score mark on the other.

Oxycontin 30 Mg Brown How Long Does It Stay In Your System For Drug Screen Purposes

if one oxycontin 30 was snift or taken orally how long would it show up in a urine test ## It can vary a little, depending on how long and how often you were taking it, but narcotics generally clear out of your system in 24 to 48 hours. However, if you have a prescription, then you only need to inform them of that, when you go in for testing. Though, they may want proof from your doctor. Are there any other comments or questions? ## I swallow the OPs and they dont work. ive never misused them as they can cause the foolowing;OxyContin consists of a dual-polymer matrix, intended for oral use only. Abuse of the crushed tablet poses a hazard of overdose and death. With parenteral abuse-IV, the tablet excipients, especially talc, can be expected to result in local tissue necrosis (death), in...
