Oxycodone Overview

Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from poppy-derived thebaine. It is a narcotic analgesic generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain. It was developed in 1916 in Germany[4][5] as one of several new semi-synthetic opioids in an attempt to improve on the existing opioids.[1] Oxycodone is available as single-ingredient medication in immediate release and controlled release. Combination products formulated with non-narcotic ingredients such as NSAIDs and paracetamol ...

a333 white pill
I just started taking the A333 pill. It is supposed to be a generic substitute for oxycodone 10/325. I was taking the Watson 932 generic substitute but was switched to the A333 pill because of drug store supply. I have noticed the A333 does not work nearly as well as the Watson 932 for me. ## Hello, Will! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. How long have you been taking this one? There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, but they are usual minuscule and normally your body will adjust after a short period of time. ## I have been taking Percocet for a long time. Up until about 4 months ago I would get this strong burst of energy along with killing the pain. It would last about 4hrs. I would get the...

I have tried every pain med there is. I'm allergic to the slow release meds. What ever is in them that let's them release slow brakes me out in hives. It took almost two years of trying diffrant meds to find the one that works. Now the Rehab center says after about 8 years they will not prescribe my oxycodone anymore.if that's not Bad enough the new doctor only gave me enough to get though for a week are two. I followed everything that was asked of me. And now they say management will not after having me being depended on the meds write for my meds. There should be some type of law againest that.

Doctors near Canton Ohio Who Prescribe Oxycodone
My husband has a bad back (bull stepped on him in high school) he's 37 now, and needs surgery. We cannot do that right now, so he's been on oxycodone 30mg, but we've moved 16 hours away from old dr. Need new dr in Ohio preferably near Canton, but at least somewhere near. Can anyone please help us find a Dr. who prescribes that. We've been looking, & not having any luck. Any advise would be great!! ## The best piece of advice I can give you is to get him an appointment to see a new doctor, but don't ask ahead of time if they will prescribe any particular medication. When you do that, doctors view it as being drug seeking behavior and will usually just say that they don't prescribe, don't treat such things or whatever excuse they can come up with to not tak...

im on 2mg oxycodone will withdrawal be bad for me
I have weened down to 2mg oxycodone every 6 hours how bad will I feel when I stop in a few days ## At that low of a dose, the withdrawal and rebound effects should be minimal, but much of it really depends on your body and how it reacts. How long have you been down to this low of a dosage? Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? The rebound type effects usually involve pain that may be worse than the pain you were taking it to treat and the withdrawal effects can include nausea, dizziness and diarrhea. ## I have taken oxycodone 20-30mgs daily for 3 months. I took 15 mgs for 3 days, I took 5 mgs this am. My question is I want to maintain the 5 mgs for 5-6 days and then come off. How bad will the withdrawals be

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Oxycodone In Chicago Illinois
I live in Chicago, Illinois and I have been on Oxycodone 30mg for 3 years. My doctor retired and I haven't been able to find a doctor since to prescribe them. Can you help me and give me a doctors name that will prescribe this medication in the Chicagoland area... ## I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors that will prescribe any given medication. And you may be creating part of the problem yourself, if you're calling new doctors and asking them to prescribe a specific medication. Most doctors will see that as being drug seeking behavior and won't even let you get in the door. The best thing you can do is to set up an appointment with a new doctor and then just make sure they get a full copy of your medical records, so they can speak for themselves. Learn more Oxyc...

Oxycodone Shortage In Florida 2012
Can a pharmacist just be quite and fill the script the doctor ordered for his patient.They lie to us and then fill freds script for the same thing and smile while they do it.We are tax paying citizens in pain and the DEA has made a real mess of everything. Real patients cant even get their meds. ipetitions.com/petition/Oxycodone-shortage-myth-created-by-the-DEA ## The whole country seems to be in a sort of bind in so far as normal patients being depicted as addicts and many who are unable to get their scripts filled no matter who they are or what they do. I think petitions such as this one do significantly help; but the real question is, are they even going to do something about these complaints even with all the petitions floating around the net? We should hope so, but knowing our gove...

Which is strong 15mg MS Contin or 15mg Oxycodone
I wonder what the difference is between 15MG MS Contin vs 15 Mg Oxycodone. Is there a substitute for MS Morphine..I take 2 30mg MS Contin twice a day and also with that I take 15MG MS Contin twice per day..which of course is 45mgs at a time..with 3 15mg Oxcodone for breakthru pain. I was taking 20 mg Oxycontin 3 times a day etc. But my insurance wasn't paying for the oxy. So what I take now is paid for. Do any of you have any suggestions of what would work better for the pain..since I changed to morphine it doesn't seem to do the trick..this is long..but any answers would be very appriciated..Thanks.. ## Oxycodone is actually one and a half times stronger than Morphine. So, for instance if you were taking 20mgs of Oxycodone, at a time, to relieve your pain, then the equivalent d...

oxycodone 20 mg K57 vs NP14
I don't usually count the pills when I pick up my Rx. This time I did & felt a difference in the thickness. Some are marked NP on one side & K57 on one side & blank on the other. I'm assuming they're from different Mfg Co's but don't like to assume with my pain pills! Also, is it normal practice for Pharmacies to mix? ## I have a bad back and am wondering if being prescribed oxycodone would be the best course of action? ## Yes, these both contain 20mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation and mixing can be normal, if your pharmacy doesn't have enough of one to fill your prescription. There is nothing wrong with it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, ...
