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.

I've been prescribed oxycodone 15mg for almost 3 years now I take one tablet 4x a day I have chronic back pain from a bad accident in the past I've tried physical therapy and natural remedies but pain killers is the only thing that helps me get threw the day. when I find a new doctor will they prescribe my medication without any problems or will it be difficult for me to get it with all the new law changes I'm only 21 I've had the same doctor as a child so he knows all my medical history and knows I don't abuse them but if I see a new doctor they might stereotype me because of my age. I don't want to move and not be able to get my medication because of people my age ruining it abusing narcotics.

Im looking for pain doc that will give me what my old doc did which was 30mg oxycodone 5day 2mg zans 4day 10/350mg norco 6days, i live in okc, plz anything will help ## Hello, Stella! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, you'll most likely need to see 2 different specialists for such medications, one for the pain and the other for the issue requiring Xanax.

I need a doctor in San Jose, CA area to prescribe oxycodone 30 mg

I live in the san Jose area and I'm trying to find a doctor to prescribe me oxycodone 30 mg for chronic back pain. please help. my email is {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Mike! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, most doctors aren't going to let you walk in and ask for a specific medication in a specific dosage. They usually tend to view that as being drug seeking behavior. You need to set up an appointment, make sure they get a copy of your current medical records, then discuss your treatment options at the actual appointment. And due to the new regulations that were put in place last year by the DEA, you'll need to see a pain management specialist, to hav...

difference between 30mg oxycodone and oxycontin
76 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 ...

How Much Is Too much Oxycodone For A Male At Weight Of 225 Lbs
31 Replies RSS
I would like to know what would cause an overdose in a male who is 225 lbs. in weight using oxycodone. I have over 220 5 mg. tabs. ## Please correct me if I am wrong, but to my knowledge, Oxycodone doses aren't usually based on weight, but rather the severity of the pain you're dealing with. I went ahead and posted the adult dosing guidelines below...As far as ODing on oxycodone, I would guess anything over a 100mg, since you can get them in doses of as high as 80mg and oxycontin at even higher doses. For initial treatment the following dosing schedule is recommended: Immediate Release (IR): 5 mg to 15 mg orally every 4 to 6 hours Controlled Release (CR): 10 mg orally every 12 hours. For maintenance treatment: Immediate Release: 10 mg to 30 mg orally every 4 hours. Doses greater...

Cannot find a Pharmacy to fill Oxycodone 30mg near Detroit, MI...Help please?
33 Replies RSS
My husband received a script of Oxycodone 30 mg a few weeks ago from his surgeon and I cannot find a pharmacy to get them filled at. They mostly say they do not carry them or they are on back order. I have called everywhere. Any suggestions? Anyone know a pharmacy that carries it? Thanks in advance. ## This has become an ongoing problem all over the U.S. and I am not sure exactly why, but there may be some shortages going on, as well as new dispensing regulations. The best suggestion I can make is that if you have insurance, I'd suggest you check with your prescription insurance provider and see if they have a mail order pharmacy that you can use. This has worked for many people that were having trouble getting their narcotic prescriptions filled. Learn more Oxycodone details here. ...

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...
