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...

meds not helping high tolerance
How can I get my Dr. to understand I've built a tolerance to pain meds. Same dosage for 2 yrs . 80mgs of oxycontin and 30mgs of opana daily . I have severe osteoarthritis bursitis and fibromyaliga. Dr. says that's the maxi he can give me. Should I look for another pain Dr.?? ## What is the difference in the old oxycontin and the new?? How can I tell which I have? ## Gigi4121! How are you? The new Oxycontin tablets were reformulated to help make them more abuse proof and the old ones are no longer being manufactured, so it is fairly safe to say that if you've gotten them filled within the past year, you have the new tablets. 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 an...

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...

You need to make the new Dr. AND his nurses understand what you've been taking and for how long, and that what he's precribed has put you into massive WD, let alone the new script isn't helping with your pain that the OXY w...

What does oxycontin look like and or the generics for it
this is a little light blue round pill with a m printed on it and underlined ## I can't possibly list them all, there are far too many on the market. It is the imprint that identifies them. Can you post back with the markings on the tablet in question? There is one that has an M in a box on one side and a 30 on the opposite side of the pill, it is light blue. There is another in a darker blue, with the M in a square and the numbers 596 on the opposite side. Do any of these match your tablet? ## What is the difference in oxycontin and roxycontin

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"? Quit putting that crap in your veins and take it like youre supposed to then we ALL would not have to suffer the consequence's of dope...

fill oxycontin prescription in Lakewood Calif.
i have been taking oxycontin # 60 for 3 yrs now due to 4 back surgeries. i cannot find where to fill my script right now here in calif. i have been using Walgreens. i just need to know what Walgreens has in stock. Or where i can go to fill. been out for 3 days and i'm feeling the effect right now. {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Linda! How are you? I'm sorry, but there are no listings of what pharmacy has any given medication in stock that I can refer to for you. The only way to find out is by physically going to the pharmacies, with your prescription in hand to ask. However, you Walgreens should be able to check with others to see if they have it, which would save you some running. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effec...

shreveport doctors
Hemotologist who takes Medicaid/ Medicare and can write oxycontin 80mg and oxycodone15mg ## Hello, Connye! How are you? I don't think most hematologists will want to prescribe such medications. In most cases, you're going to have to see a pain management specialist, regardless of what your condition might be, unless you have late stage cancer. 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. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

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 Tablets 10gm Controlled release made in UK
I need to know what the fillers are in the oxycontin Tablets 10 mgm made in the UK and distributed by Mundipharma P/L Bridge St Sydney. I have a patient with a dairy allergy and who cannot tolerate Lactose as a tablet filler. ## Hi Robert, It is difficult to answer this question unless you can post the specific manufacturer name. Manufacturing processes differ between each company, and even generic products of the same drug can have different fillers / inactive ingredients. Because of that, the best starting point to knowing the proper answer is to first ascertain who is making the pills in question. Hope this makes sense! Let me know what you think... ## The manufacturer of OxyContin (until last year there were no generics; the patent does not officially expire until 2006, 20 years aft...

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.

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, ...

How To Break Down Oxycontin Op Inject It
I am a Iraq vet who has a heroin problem I have easy availableity to the new op Oxy.cotten but have learned u can shoot them up can you help me? ## Shooting up any medication, which is not intended to be injected, is actually very dangerous. Tablets, especially time released ones, contain fillers that are not intended to be broken down by the human body, they are normally just expelled in your waste. If you inject these medications, you are putting these fillers into your body in a manner, in which, it can't eliminate them and this creates the risk of blockages, that could lead to embolisms or strokes. And as to the new Oxycontin, it has been specially formulated to help prevent this type of abuse, even if you try to crush it and dissolve it, it turns into a gummy substance that ret...

So PLEASE Verwon, stop spamming every OP thread and misleading people, ok? ## Now, I have nothing against those who choose to abuse Oxy or any other pharmaceutical drug because it is frankly none of my business.
