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.

can I take two 10mg oxycodone
I take 10mg oxycodone every 8 hrs as needed for pain it is pink, round has a 12 on one side an N P on the other. I've been on this dose for about 18 months and most of the time it works great for my chronic lower back pain. Sometimes tho my pain level jumps to a ten and I still have 4 hrs before my next dose. It's unbearable! Can I take my dose any sooner when that happens? ## You should only take the amount prescribed by your doctor, especially if you aren't tolerant to narcotics. If it isn't handling your pain, it would be best to consult your physician, rather than just doubling up on your own, so you don't risk overdose. 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...

What is the difference between Oxycodone and Oxycontin
I am taking 30 mgs. Oxycodone up to 3 pills per day for severe back pain. Years ago I was on Oxycontin and don't remember the mgs. What is the difference between these two medications. I believe Oxycontin is stronger if they are the same dosage, is that correct?

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function.

i have a petition against actavis pharmaceutical for distributing bad oxycodone
I have a petition against Actavis Pharmaceutical for distributing bad Oxycodone. I called Actavis on the phone and they claim that the formula is the same. I was told by a reliable source that the formula has changed along with more fillers and binder included. Please let me know if you want to find my petition on Change.org. The heading will read ACTAVIS pharmaceuticals: STOP SELLING OXYCODONE AS A PLACEBO PILL TO CHRONIC PAIN SUFFERERS! Stop lining the pockets of Actavis Pharmaceutical! Thank you ## I have been taking 15mg Oxycodone for some time now. I actually break the tablet into quarters and take 3.75mg at night. Last month I began taking my recently filled prescription of Activas 15mg Oxycodone from Walgreens. After taking the Activas I became very sick. Stomach pain with very b...

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in long island
I had a dr who was prescribing me 150 30mg roxycodone every month. He decided the past month that he no longer is writing them and is only writing subs. I cannot find a dr who will write me my script. Can anyone suggest anyone? ## Who was the doctor ## I'm sorry about the problem that you've run into. However, you're not going find a doctor to just write you your prescription, as a matter of fact, if you're contacting doctors to ask them about prescribing such a medication, they're all going to be inclined to tell you no and not even let you get in the door, because they consider that to be drug seeking behavior. Have you tried asking that doctor to refer you to a pain management specialist? ## i know plenty of drs in nj who prescribe oxycodone and other pain meds 2 ...
