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. Combination products formulated with non-narcotic ingredients such as NSAIDs and paracetamol ...

Pain Management in East Texas
Who is the best pain management doctor in the Beaumont area? We just moved from Austin, and after calling around, can't find a good one. For starters, they all tell you right off the bat they don't prescribe Oxycodone. What? Why reject a drug before you even know a patient's history or what kind of results they've had with it. Why does every pain doc in Beaumont have this asinine attitude, and what alternatives do they offer? (I am already on Fentanyl patches, with a spinal stimulator, and that does not control the pain). I'd prefer someone who takes Blue Cross Blue Shield. ## The reason you're getting that attitude is because when someone calls asking for a specific medication, doctors have been taught to view that as drug seeking behavior and they'll tell y...

actavis oxycodone
I recently got my prescription filled and discovered that my generic Watsons changed to actavis. They are horrible!! They don't work even close to Watsons! Im in pain because they don't work as well. Im very disappointed and will be finding a different pharmacy!!!! ## Hello, Bthcal! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you've had. Many people have actually complained about this one. What I'd suggest is reporting the issue to the FDA, you can reach them at 888-463-6332. Is there anything else I can help with? ## ive been on watson oxy/apap 10/325 for years, and they have always worked wonderfully. last month it was changed to actavis and it feels as if i'm taking HALF THE DOSE! it's HORRIBLE, and not only does it NOT work, it looks just like a ty...

white oblong pill with l1
Found a white oblong oval pill with L 1 or it looks like a 1 is this oxycodone? no other imprints on it ## Based on the description provided the closest match I'm finding is a round white pill marked "L 1"; which is identified as a 20mg Famotidine tablet, used for treating ulcers, as well as symptoms of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and heartburn. Now I realize you mentioned that your pill was oval/oblong-shaped, so I don't know if this is a definitive match or not. Also with the possibility of the "1" not being a "1" (as you mentioned it "looks like a 1"), there could potentially be other close matches too. Does anyone else recognize this pill as something different?

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...

Looking for a pharmacy to fill my 150 30/mg oxycodone
I went to 13 pharmacies in La to fill my prescription and every pharmacy told me they were back ordered and a couple told me they dont carry it because they have been robbed. Ive never had trouble filling it where I live in the Bay Area but I'm down here for the month. I will run out of medicine tomorrow, does anyone know regular pharmacies anywhere near la who usually stock this. ## Have you tried any local hospitals? Many of them have their own affiliated pharmacies, to fill prescriptions for their discharged patients and they are usually also open to the public. Most of them carry a very large range of medications, to accommodate such prescriptions, so you may have better luck there. However, you will have to actually go into the pharmacy, with your prescription in hand, so they ...

WANTING TO SEE IF THE PHARMACY IS GIVING ME THE SAME MEDICATION I HAVE BEEEN TAKING
I HAVE ALWAYS GOT THE BLUE OXYCODONE 30 S ,BUT THIS TIME THEY ARE WHITE WITH A M ON ONE SIDE IN A BOX AN A 30 AT THE TOP OF THE OTHER SIDE WITH A LINE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS SIDE ,IS IT THE SAME KIND OF MEDICATION I BEEN TAKING.THANK YOU ## Hello, Daisy! How are you? Are they white, or pale blue? There are pale blue ones with this marking that contain 30mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation. 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.

Need a doctor to increase my pain meds because PCP is afraid of DEA near Florenece or Columbia, SC
I have had over 20 procedures to reconstruct my urinary tract due to bladder mesh erosion. i self cath thru my belly button stoma and my entire spine has either herniated and bulging discs or fused discs and I am in EXCRUCIATING PAIN. My abdomen is the worst tho. I have a "bladder" made from resected bowel, colon and my appendix and I have "knives" and "hot pokers" in my belly 24/7. I need something stronger than a 10 mg oxycodone 4 times a day. My PCP won't do any more because of DEA. He referred me to pain management and they sent note to add a duragesic patch to my treatment plan. PCP refused. WHAT CAN I DO? I'm not a seeker, and don't do recreational drugs. Anyone know of a doc that would help???? ## Your PCP is severely restricted on what they ca...
