OxyContin Overview

Oxycodone is a semisynthetic opioid synthesized from thebaine, an opioid alkaloid found in the Persian poppy, and one of the many alkaloids found in the opium poppy. It is a moderately potent opioid analgesic, generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain.[8] Oxycodone was developed in 1917 in Germany[9][10] as one of several semi-synthetic opioids in an attempt to improve on the existing opioids.[1] Oxycodone is available as single-ingredient medication in immediate release and c...

switching back to original form ## Would you care to elaborate? What is your source? ## Yes, we would like more details on this. I just did a search in my sources and haven't found anything with even a hint that they have decided to go back to the original formula.

OxyContin withdrawal - what can I expect. 40mg daily
3 Replies RSS
39 year old male, I've been taking 20mg of OxyContin twice a day for almost a year do to chronic back pain. I am not addicted but rather dependent and I never take more than I'm prescribed. The result of this is my testosterone has tanked to levels that a woman has and I determined that I'm going to quit. My pain doctor said he could wean me down, but I shouldn't have any problems with the low dose I've been taking. I tried to go 24hrs without taking a 20mg and began getting severe chills and kind of achy all over. I've been reading about going cold turkey by mega dosing vitamin C; which is said to be a miracle for relieving WD. My question is, has anyone tried this method? And also how long will it be before the worst of my symptoms pass, considering my dose? I ...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication kansas
5 Replies RSS
I too am a chronic pain sufferer, I was in a bad car accident several years ago, all my limbs were broken at once and they used my hip to rebuild one of my feet. I have a GP that has been helping me but now feels she has been letting me use too many narcotics and has abrubtly cut me off. I'm interested in controlling the pain not using the pills but it feels like nobody really cares. Is there any doctors in the Kansas City area who believe in pain management with narcotics. I believe that if you don't understand the pain of the indivdual it's hard to understand why we ask these questions. I don't want to shop for a docotor that's not what I do but what are we suppose to do if they won't help us. ## Hello, JJ! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problem t...

Opana
6 Replies RSS
Has anybody tried OPANA VS OC 80s. Any feedback would be helpful ## What dosage of the Opana? The Oxymorphone in it is actually twice as strong as the Oxycodone, so if you were taking 40mgs of it, then the equivalent dose of Oxycodone would be 80mgs. Both can be effective at controlling pain, it just requires a dosage adjustment. You should also know that there are no more Oxycontin OCs. Purdue has changed the formulation and they are now Oxycontin OP. Are there any questions or comments? Does anyone else have advice to add? ## i have and they work fair for pain but made me very tired. ## DO NOT GET THE NEW OPANA 40MG ER, THEY ARE JUCK A LORTAB 10/325 WORK BETTER BEFORE A OPANA WOULD BLOW OXYCONTIN THE NEW ONE (OP)AWAY BUT NOT NOW,MY DR PUT ME BACK ON THE NEW OPANA DO NOT WORK IN 2 WEEK...

I have never been on oxycontin before but just recently got prescribed 20mg of it. I have taken dilaudid, morphine, and oxycodone pills before though. I accidentally took two oxycontins within 2 hours of eachother as my anxiety medication is small and the same color. Should i be ok or go to an emergency room?

Took 2 OxyContin 60mg accidentally-what should I do?
7 Replies RSS
I just realized when I took my nighttime meds that I had just taken an OxyContin 60mg about an hour before that. (so I took two about an hour apart). I'm afraid I could overdose, but I know addicts probably take much more than that, so I'm not sure if I'm safe or not...I've been on this drug for well over 6 years ( 60mg at least 3 of those years), so I think I have a pretty good tolerance for it-what should I do? I'm ready to go to sleep but I don't want to wake up dead.. ## I'm sorry I didn't see your post sooner. How are you doing? Opiate tolerant or not, that's still a pretty high dosage to jump up to and, in case it ever happens again, you should know the danger signs to watch for, just in case. The early symptoms of a possible overdose might incl...

OXYCONTIN 40 MG CR TAB
1 Reply RSS
How long does it take for OxyContin 40mg CR taken twice daily to get in my system and provide full effect? I was prescribed these and am on my 3rd day taking them with 2 loratab 10mg for breakthrough and have received a different effect each time taking the OxyContin-Also, is the 40mg OxyContin a standard dose for someone that has been taking 3 10mg loratab for break through pain with 3 15mg morophine ER daily for continued relief? ## Yes, that is a fairly standard dose, but while it should have some immediate effect, it may take 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in you body. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Has there been any improvement, yet?

Cheapest Pharmacy To Purchase Oxycontin 40 Mg
4 Replies RSS
We have lost our health insurance and now I have to pay retail for my pain med I have been on for 8 years. I nee to know which pharmacy has the best price on the cost to me. Also dose anyone know what the pharamacy pays for the Oxycontin 40 mg wholesale. ## I'm sorry, but there's really no central database listing the price any pharmacy charges, it varies depending on how much you are buying, by location and which pharmacy you use. Oxycontin is also a name brand, so it is still quite expensive. My suggestion would be that you talk to your doctor about using an alternative medication that would be much cheaper. There is a time released Morphine available, the name brand is MS Contin, but it's also available as a generic. You'd just need a higher dose of it to be equivalen...

pink small round pill op 20

It's a pink small round pill with op on one side and 20 on the other side ## nurse ## this is the new replacement for the Oxycontin 20 mg. the color is an exact match for the OC 20, but the new pills are noticeably thicker. forget about snorting or Iv. use, this thing has the consistency of candle wax ## That is correct, it is the new Oxycotnin OP. They have been reformulated to help prevent abuse of the medication. They cannot be crushed and broken down, they retain their time released properties. Side effects remain the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.
