meds not helping high tolerance
5 Replies RSS
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...

40mg oxycontin op efficacy
Post a Reply
They are horrible. Purdue pharma put too much filler and other stuff in them. They can pass right through your body in your stool, which happened to me. They can make you sick. They take way too long to work. I get about 6 hours and that's just calming my pain down. The docs will tell you they're 12 hour pain relief which is BULL, and the 80mg say 12 hours - Now how can that be? I've been through 6 failed lower back operations, damaged nerves, scar tissue on nerves, 5 deteriorated discs in my upper back, 3 severe multiple bone spurs sticking in my nerves and 2 bulging discs in my neck, and need both knees replaced. And my doc only wants me to take 2 a day. I only get 3 hours of sleep. I'm up at 1am or 2:30am and then take another dose at 9 or 10 am. I CANNOT go through t...

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
202 Replies RSS
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...

Is there a generic for Brand Name OXYCONTIN EXTENDED RELEASE?
21 Replies RSS
The cost is way too high. I though generic oxycontin was coming back. Does anyone have an update? ## Hi, Marty! No, there isn't a generic and under the current regulations there won't be one any time soon. Since it is such a highly abused medication that has an extremely high rate of addiction, theft and diversion, the generics were removed from the market to help keep better control of the supply. If there is only one manufacturer, then it is much easier to know exactly how much has been manufactured, where it's being stored, where it's being shipped and etc. If you need a cheaper medication for pain control that is still time released, you may want to ask your doctor about trying MS Contin, it is a time released formulation of Morphine and there are generics of it avai...

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 ...

oxycontin op and oc whats the difference
208 Replies RSS
I've been taking the oxycontin oc for years now. I want to know what exactly is in the new oxycontin op? PLEASE HELP ## The new Oxycontin OP are replacing the original Oxycontin. They contain the same active ingredient Oxycodone, in a time released formulation. The only difference is that they have been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. Even if someone tries to crush or chew them, they retain their time released properties. Side effects are still the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Do you have any questions? ## Well I've been on this medicine for over 5 years now, and YES it has changed. I don't know how they are getting away with calling it the same thing? They are absolutely not, all in active ingredients have changed. Headaches, Nausea, Sto...

Can Teeth Rot Because Of Oxycontin Use
21 Replies RSS
ive been on these for about 7 years and was just asking coz my teeth are slowly getting worse also on oxynorm amitriptoline seratail co-codamol and have just started on fentanyl patches please help ## Your teeth can be affected by many medications, especially narcotics. The problem is caused due to the fact that they tend to sap the minerals from your body, plus they cause dry mouth, which allows more bacteria to sit on your teeth. From the medications you are taking, all of the narcotics, the Oxycontin, Co-Codamol, Oxynorm and the Fentanyl can cause a loss of calcium, as well as dry mouth. And the Amitryptiline can also cause dry mouth as a side effect. Many people on long-term narcotic pain management end up with severe dental issues and a lot have lost all their teeth and required de...

Snorting Oxycontin Or Oral Which Stays In The Blood Longer
4 Replies RSS
Does anyone know if snorting a 30mg Oxycodone or taking the pill orally will bring about a difference in how long it will stay in the bloodstream? ## I would think since snorting the drug gets it going through your system at a quicker rate, that it will in turn decrease the half life (in comparison to taking it orally)..just because you could be metabolizing it differently from the start. That's just my theory though and I may be wrong. Unfortunately (for many individuals) there's no set of dosing guidelines for snorting medications. Just taking it orally as it is meant to be taken, will ensure you that the half-life of the drug "is what it is" 3 - 4.5 hours.

Oxycontin damaged my teeth
729 Replies RSS
Has anyone else known oxycontin to rot the teeth? I used to be on vicodin until my doctor told me I needed to switch to a morphine based meds. She put me on ms contin but I had problems with it so she put me on 80mg oxycontin. Eventually my body built up a tolerance so she kept raising it, i have am now on from 4-6 per day of the 80mg tabs. It scares me that this is what rotted my teeth because only 5 yrs ago i had only 2 cavities that needed filling and then only 1 yr after going on the oxycontin i had to have all my top front teeth pulled as they where rotting from the inside out the dentist said my mouth looked like a heroin addict's mouth looks. He said it was shocking to him that normally he only saw such damage from someone who abused drugs with so much dental damage, but i ha...

Blank Orange Round Pill 50 on oneside White Inside

What pill is this? What is it for and can it be used as a recreational drug ## Hi J, This pill was a tough one to find, but fortunately another user was trying to identify this same pill and can confirm that it is a 60mg Generic Oxycotin tablet. (Yes that is a "60mg" despite the imprint of "50" on the pill itself). I don't think that it is manufactured in the U.S.; but "more than likely" sourced in Canada, based on info I gathered. Unfortunately I have not found any other specific details regarding this pill other than the identification of the pill in and of itself. Oxycontin (Oxycodone) comes in various forms and is used to treat moderate to severe levels of pain. Oxycontin is a highly addictive and abusive drug that many addicts use for recreational purpos...

is taking 2 10mg oxycontin tabs the same as taking 1 20mg oxycontin? ## Yes, it would essentially be the same, though there may be some slight variations, just due to there being two separate pills, so the release rate could be slightly different.

OxyContin old formula is still available in the EU & UK
6 Replies RSS
Many countries in Europe (such as Bard for UK and Mundi Pharma of Germany, Austria, Italy, and Napp) still make the original formula OC 20, OC 40 and the OC 80. That has been the case for me since 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. I do not know about the future... If Europe changed from OC to embossed OP on the Oxycontin, I will be forced to try USA Roxicodone 30 mg I/R and have to deal with the notorious Pain Management Clinics, as a last resort. I pray I do not have to go that route. I am a USA citizen, and it gets more difficult by the year to obtain OxyContin outside the USA in the 1996 Purdue original formula; and the price has risen dramatically, "from my medical providers, from Europe". ## THE dea & the government needs to feel the pain we die with daily, so they can see ho...

Oxycontin Profuse Sweating
52 Replies RSS
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...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
630 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...
