Oxycontin 20mg Op

My doctor recently began prescribing me OxyContin 20 mg tablets for my EDS and arthritis pain. He also is prescribing me 20 mg of Pepcid for a stomach ulcer I have. From what my pharmacist told me the OxyContin is a time released medication broken down by stomach acid. The problem I'm having is with the Pepcid I'm taking I do not have enough acid to properly break down the OxyContin. I can literally see the pills come out in my bowel movements. I'm also having trouble urinating since starting this medication. My question is what type of medication can I ask my doctor to percribe me that will be able to break down with being on the Pepcid? From all of the research I have done as well as blogs I have read the most common medication prescribed is a 30 milligram Percocet. But isnt that the same thing as OxyContin? I know they are both oxycondone.

Actually, what you are seeing is just the shell of the tablets, which is used as part of the time released mechanism. The medication itself is still released into your body, the whole tablet is not supposed to be broken down and it only takes a miniscule amount of stomach acid to start the process. The process is then continued by the fluids you drink.

If you weren't producing enough stomach acid to release the medication in the pills, you'd know, because there also wouldn't be enough to digest your good. It would just sit on your stomach, until you finally got sick and vomited.

As to the problem urinating, have you changed your fluid intake? Have you spoken to your doctor about this issue?

The only changes I have made is actually drinking more. The medication makes me extremly thirsty so I am drinking what seems to be gallons of water. Maybe the medication just isnt working well for me? I just dont seem to be recieving the same relief as I did from the percocet I was on. Is this sometging that takes time to build up in your system? And yes I actually called my doctor today and I still have not recieved a call back.
