Oxycodone Overview

Oxycodone is a semisynthetic opioid synthesized from thebaine, an opioid alkaloid found in the Persian poppy and one of the many opioid alkaloids found in the opium poppy. It is an analgesic generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain. It was developed in 1917 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.

3242 Replies RSS
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 am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

i was taking oxycodone 10mg pink k56 pills and then my doctor swiched me to norco do they have the same ingredients
4 Replies RSS
Does norco 5/325 have the same ingredients as the little pink pill k56 which is oxycodone 10mg. My doctor swicth me due to the strength. The k56 pills are stronger he said and i needed a weaker pill to be able to work. So he prescribed me the norco. What im saying here is that are they the same but different doses? ## No, they are not the same. The Norco contains the narcotic Hydrocodone coupled with Acetaminophen. 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 and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## what does kvk mean on my oxycodone 10 mg tabs bottle ## KvK Bio Tech is the pharmaceutical company that make the drug. ## No they are two diff type of narcotics as we...

how many of these white oblong ip204 oxycodone pills can you take at once. i took one and barely feel much. how many can kill you if its your first time etc... ## Hello, Manny! How are you? What are you expecting to feel from it? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Oxycodone. The FDA classifies this as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. The Acetaminophen is actually the biggest danger, because taking too much of it in a day could result in overdose Toxicity, liver failure, liver damage and it could be fatal. There's no precise amount anyone can tell you is or isn't dange...

I was prescribed Percocet? I got Oxycodone at the pharmacy?
2 Replies RSS
Not everyone is seeking to feel high! Some people just had major surgery on their arm in which they are dependent on a powerful pain reliever to be able to function, combined with physical therapy! Until you have sustained an injury such as this, please don't judge! In my opinion, or at least my situation, I was prescribed a prescription to Percocet, in which I was given Oxycodone, which I believe to be the same active ingredient as Percocet and Oxycontin, except with the anti-inflammatory of acetaminophen. Excuse my misspellings. I'm just interested in the difference! As I don't won't to be a gimp all my life. I'm only 43, and became disabled and unemployed due to a simple fall. ## Yes, Percocet, as listed by the FDA, would contain Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, not j...

formula change coming for oxycodone and dilaudid
1 Reply RSS
Anyone hearing about oxycodone and dilaudid's formula being changed ## Hello, Maty! How are you? The formulation for Oxycontin was changed a few years ago, to help prevent its abuse and there has been talk about making the others more abuse proof, as well. However, I don't have any precise information on when it will be done, or even if this is still in the works. Does anyone else know more? The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

I couldn't help but notice that no one has mentioned oxycodone. I take 4 40mg daily and it has been effective in treating my back issues. They have enabled me to return to work, which involves a lot of travel and much activity once onsite, and due to this medication my pain no longer dictates my life. There is always the fear of dependence but over the years I have become something of an expert at withdrawal and how to avoid it. When used responsibly this medication is a Godsend. When it is abused it is a curse. ## Hello, Tracy! How are you? I'm very glad that this mediation has helped you so much. The FDA classifies Oxycodone narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipat...

can you take oxycodone 7.5/325 every 3 hours
Post a Reply
My mother is 74 yrs old. Had rotator cuff surgery 4 days ago. Had to take her to the ER on day two. There they gave her an IM Dilaudid shot and sent her home. Called the doctor on call the next day and ask if they could admit her for pain management, he proceeded to tell me that the insurance would not pay for it. Post-op surgery they gave her Percocet 7.5/325 1-2 every 4-6 hours for pain. To make a long story short. Two was too strong so she had the 5-325 and took two every four hours and that would help her pain level which would be tolerable at 5. This is 3900mg of tylenol. Too much in only 24 hours. So this is why I am asking if you can take the Percocet 7.5/325 every 3 hours?

difference between 30mg oxycodone and oxycontin
77 Replies RSS
I keep searching and STILL don¨t have a straight answer. I am currently on 30mg, 3 times a day of OXYCODONE (legally prescribed) for horrific back pain..... ¿WHAT is the difference between the 2, if any, besides the NAME? oxycodone AND oxycontin........ PLEASE help me out! thanks! thanks!! ## Its the same drug - Oxycodone. One is time released (Oxycontin) and one is immediate release (oxycodone). If they changed your meds from Oxycodone 30mg 3xper day (total of 90mg a day) to Ocycontin it would be probably be 40mg 2x a day with breakthrough meds. ## Pita's comment is basically true. Though OxyContin is technically oxycodone hydrochloride - a slightly different formula, but yes -- essentially the same drug. The major difference is the time-released delivery of OxyContin as ...

i had been taking 10 mg 325, for back pain and left shoulder pain; I have had hardware placed in the back and a ball installed in the left shoulder; they switched me to 15 mg of oxy and it has been hell; tired muscles, huge drymouth, extreme fatigue and a feeling of not wanting to do anything but sleep ## Hello, Richard! How are you? I'm sorry about the way you're feeling. But yes, as listed by the FDA, those are normal side effects for this medication. 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 and constipation. However, things should improve, after a few weeks, once your body gets used to the medication. If they don't, then you should speak to your doctor. Is there a...
