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...

I live in central new jersey, and lost my dr. of 10 years i did 5 years in physical therapy for some issues i am forced to leave my dr. and desparetly need another immediately I need him/her to prescribe my zanex and re=start my pain pills i will be out of zanex in a week please help me find a doctor who will easily prescribe these medications ## Hello, Suzie! How are you? Why are you leaving your current doctor? Due to the new regulations that were put in place, if you require such medications on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see specialists. Can anyone recommend good doctors in that area? ## Had to leave her because we became personal friends and she has become way too involved in my life. It's complicated but this leaves me in an awful position. Besides the xanex ...

is oxycodone stronger than percocet
I just had neck surgery a fusion on 5,6, and 7 i have been taking percacet 10/325 now for over a year well i ran out of my percacet and the doctor prescribed me oxycodone 5/325 so i just took one of those i just wanted to know if i should take to instead of one because if they aint stronger than percacet it won't help right? ## Honey, Percocet IS oxycodone. Oxycodone IS the generic form of Percocet. (Percocet is the name brand, as Advil= IBprofun & Tylenol=Acetimeniphen.) your doc has u on the 5mg instead of the 10mg, probably for a reason-so be careful, this addiction Thing is no joke. I promise you. Your better off starting as low as possible. Hey, wishing you a happy quick recovery! Xo ## Actually, Percocet is the name brand for a medication that contains the active ingredien...

can i get my new jersey script filled in Fl.
I am moving to Florida from New Jersey in dec my Dr writes my scripts for oxycodone 15 mg and oxycontin 20 mg for two weeks and gives me both of them post dated to fill 2 weeks later for 2 more weeks bc of my insurance will I have trouble filling the post dated scripts from Jersey in Fl when I get there ? ## Hello, Jamie! How are you? Yes, you most likely won't be able to get them filled. Most pharmacies won't touch out of state prescriptions, because it's much harder to verify their validity. Supply problems have also caused many pharmacies to have to restrict their customer base to only people who live within a certain radius of their store and whose doctors are also located within a certain radius of their store. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be...

round, green, pill with K 8 with a slash between the letter & number and plain on the back sold as 15 mg oxycodone on 12?12/2011, use to get mallinkro
compared to the mallinkrodt 15 mg there is a huge difference. This is for chronic pain issues and the new KVK-t do not help one bit. Can anyone let me kow whay is going on? Dec. 12, 2011 ## This tablet does contain 15mgs of Oxycodone, but there can be slight variations in the amount of active ingredients in the generics, so you may not be getting the exact same dose that you are used to and it may not work as well for you. The only suggestion I can really make is that you speak to your pharmacy about it and see if they can order the ones made by Mallinckrodt in for you. Are there any other comments or questions? ## I am a spinal cripple. I was given these K/8 Oxycodone 15mg pills a few months ago - they indeed do NOT work effectively. I can understand why. My Dr's and I have discuss...

oxycodone ir 30mg any truth to a rumor going around that they will not be available much longer than 6 months
I have heard that oxycodone IR will no longer be on the market in the u.s, is this true? someone said they heard on the news that oxycodone immediate release 30mg tablets will be off market within 6 months, has anyone been told this? ## No, not that I am aware of in anything I've read recently. And I doubt the veracity of this claim from the person that stated it due to one major reason, that being that there is no 30mg Oxycodone IR, so that is not the way it would have been presented on the news. The instant release is only available as a 5mg capsule. Anything stronger than that is either the regular released formulation, or the time released formulation. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness,...
