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. Parenteral formulations of 10 mg/mL and 50mg/mL are available in the U.K. for IV/IM administr...

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 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...

Pharmacy to fill 30mg oxycodone in/near Los Angeles
Hi, I'm a chronic pain patient and have been taking this medication for about 4 months, but this last time I have not been able to find any pharmacy to fill my prescription at. Is there anyone who knows a pharmacy in or around los angeles or neighboring cities that will fill an rx for 60 30mg oxycodone? I can't drive around and shop store to store since the pain I am in prohibits me from doing so. I've been to about 20 places without luck. Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you! ## I need a pain doctor in Phoenix. I just found out all the pain. management places are really rehab's so I don't go to them.

Finding A good Pain Doctor in the VA DC MD area. That will help you out.
Looking for a good pain Doctor that will prescribe Oxycodone. Its so hard working two jobs with no insurance, and trying to go to school as well to get my degree. I work for a moving company and install computers all day long. Always in pain Looking for A GOOD PAIN DOCTOR!!! WHO WILL PRESCRIBE OXYCODONE!! PLEASE HELP Preferably in the Northern Virginia AREA!!! ## There is really no way we could possibly have information on what a doctor will prescribe for you. In addition, going in and asking for a specific medication gives a doctor the impression that you are a drug seeker. In these cases, it is always best to let your medical records speak for themselves. In the D.C. Metro area, it is also very hard to find places that will do this, at all. I lived there for awhile and I know first ha...

doctor who prescribes oxycodone in san diego
Hello I live in New Jersey. I have had two back surgeries and I currently am prescribed 30mg oxycodone for pain. Before you judge me just know I have tried everything non narcotic for pain and the only way I can even get out of bed is with pain killers. I am relocating to San Diego and I need a doctor who is not afraid to prescribe oxycodone. Please help! ## Hello, Jay! How are you? There are no guarantees that a new doctor will prescribe it for you. Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, a general practitioner will not be able to prescribe it for you, so you'll need to see a pain management specialist. The easiest thing to do would be to set yourself up with a new PCP, as soon as you arrive and have them refer you to someone. Make sure that you provide them wi...

oxycodone shortage in las vegas
I'm an older man in real pain, I have driven and visited 60 pharmacies in the last 3 days to get my percocet prescription filled in Las Vegas and am unable to find them! I inquired if I had my prescription changed to norco if I co get those the answer has been no. Why can the government force citizens to live in pain, I need a tooth pulled but am afraid to have it done as there will be no pain relief!!! ## Hello, Dave! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you've run into. However, we are now into the time of year when there is virtually always a shortage of controlled substances due to mandatory manufacturing limits. To try to keep better track of the supply, each manufacture can only produce a certain amount each year and once they reach that amount, they can...

oxycodone in stock anywhere?
i needi wanted too know if any pharmacy in florida that can feel the perscrption for oxycodone i appreceate your help i have to much pain and i can not find the anywhere i have medical card thank you i appreciate ## Apparently there are a ton of other people within these forums having the same issue with filling prescriptions in the state of Florida. So you're definitely not alone on this matter. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing what pharmacy has any given medication in stock, at any given time. From what I could gather, there was a shortage, due to imposed manufacturing limits at the end of the year, so it may just be taking awhile for all pharmacies to get a supply back in to fill prescriptions. In the meantime you may want to consider ordering from a legitimate online pha...

pharmacies that will fill oxycodone and methadone.
I live in Naples, Florida and I am legally prescribed both methadone and oxycodone. I have an extremely hard time trying fill these prescriptions. I once went to 19 different pharmacies in one day trying to fill them! Only to be told that either they are out, don't carry it, or are no longer taking in New "clients." I finally found a.place that would fill 180 pills of my methadone, even though I am prescribed 270. I had my doctor break up my prescription into two so it would be easier. I then found a place that fills my second part of my prescription with little problems. I've been going to these two different pharmacies on and off for the past two years. Now I find out that the main pharmacy I use is going out of business, andnow the other one has been giving me hassles...
