Hey! In all the other threads about the new oxy's -- everyone is stressing the new coatings, it seems. I have found the easiest and most efficient way to get BOTH coatings off is {edited for safety reasons} Thought y'all would like to know that. ## I called Perdue today and BITCHED! I have been taking the 80's for years at high doses and i just got my script filled and i got 540 of the new ones. I broke out in hives the size of lemons. I called this number 203.588.8000 and told the woman what happened and she transfered me to a nurse in the medical dept. I just asked her what the heck they did to my meds. It's the damn binders they're using that did this to me. She asked my name and address and how many i take at a time and IF i swallow them. I would guess if enough ...

I need advice on this scary subject taking oxycontin 20mg and the possible effects of interfering with my 2mg xanax now not working like it useto
4 Replies RSS
can anyone give me some help about why my 2m xanax for the past two refills are no longer having the same effect it used it because of the 20mg oxycontin i'm also taking? I've done that before and now I need my xanax to work due to severe anxiety disorder, this has never happened to me anyoneCDUW ## Based on my research there are drug interactions listed between these two medications. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Using Alprazolam together with Oxycodone may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
464 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...

How Long Does Oxycontin Stay In Your System
5 Replies RSS
If I have been taking oxycontin everyday for about a month, how long will it take to get out of my system? I have a drug test next Friday afternoon, and it's a ten panel test. What are the chances of it showing up if I stop taking them today? ## I go 5 days without and my urine tests clean. Now I'm in Canada so I dunno if the tests r different. I know people who go 3 days and come out clean but the longer the better I'd say 5-7 days to b safe. Good luck :) ## Does anyone have jerk like seizures while sleeping after a month of stopping zanax? I do and I don't know why, I'm perfectly healthy mentally,kinda scary ## Zantax is one of the most dangerous drugs to come off of.. Sezuires are absolutely a number one side effect of zantax withdrawal. Be careful. ## I take just...

Oxycontin Original Formula
16 Replies RSS
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...

OxyContin 80 mg OC Round Green pill, OC one side 80other
1 Reply 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

Does Oxycontin And Oxycodone Show Up The Same N A Drug Urine Test
106 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...

Which pharmacies stock sandoz generic oxycontin in Melbourn, Australia
1 Reply RSS
Hi, I have been suffering in pain for years. The reformulated oxycontin does not seem to work as well as the old ones. I am prescribed 10mg tablets. In Australia there is now Sandoz generic oxycontin. I would like to try to see if it works better like the old ones. My question is does anyone know a pharmacy in Melbourne Australia that stocks Sandoz generic oxycontin? ## Hello jonsey from Melbourne. Any pharmacy can order the Sandoz generic Oxycontin for you, you just have to have the correct script. They do come in a 10mg dose. Your doctor, when writing the script, has to make sure NOT to put a 'tick' in the box that says 'no brand substitution permitted' so you will be able to obtain the generic brand, otherwise you will automatically be given the reformulation.

Oxycontin and the Redneck Cocktail
22 Replies RSS
I have recently heard about a drug combination called the Redneck Cocktail. I know it has oxycontin in it but I'm not sure of the other parts of the cocktail. Does anyone know what this combination of pills is or why it is so popular? ## It looks like this is created by mixing Oxycodone and Crystal Meth, also sometimes called a redneck martini. Both of these are commonly abused by those who like the high euphoric effect, however they are both very dangerous, and in combination, potentially deadly. ## If methamphetamine and Oxycontin are indeed this so called 'redneck cocktai' - than this in particular is extremely dangerous. Oxycontin is an opiate. Opiates are drugs in the DEPRESSANT category whereas Methamphetamine is an amphetamine (obviously), and in the stimulant categor...

did they replace all the original oxycontin with this new crush resistance formula
63 Replies RSS
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...

Generic Oxycontin IN NEW JERSEY HELP !!!!
6 Replies RSS
Where can i find generic oxycontin 40Mg in north jersey?????? i have a legitimate script and cant find it! i cant spend 200$ on my medicine ## I am very sorry, but there is no generic of Oxycontin, which contains the narcotic Oxycodone in a time released formulation. The generics were removed from the market, several years ago, due to the extremely high rates of theft and diversion that take place with this medication. If there is only one company making it, Purdue Pharma, then it is far easier to keep track of the supply and where it ends up. Even the ones provided by Ethex Pharmaceuticals are name brand, they are just a licensed distributor for Purdue. Have you tried talking to your doctor about trying something else? There is a regular release formulation of Oxycontin that is availab...

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.

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...
