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 get 90 10mg oxycodone from my doctor each month i want to know what minimum he can give me per month
i want to know why my dr. will only prescribe me 90 pills of 10mg oxycode for a month yet know people that get up towards 120 a month. because by the end of my month i have to live in pain for a wek and a hlf before i can drive to his office wait in the waiting room and finally be see , just to get the same 90, which are'nt enough. ## Actually, your doctor is not obligated to give you any of them, ever. 90 pills a month would be 3 a day and that is the normal dosing for pain. How many does your prescription tell you to use? Have you told the doctor that this dosage is not handling your pain? Have you considered a different doctor or perhaps pain management? Oxycodone is a very potent narcotic analgesic. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read m...

generic 10mg oxycodone IR KVK brand. Any info about known quality of this med compared to other generics?
I have seen so many different opinions and information about companies offering generic oxycodone and the differences in strength, and quality over other generic brands. I have also heard that the FDA allows from 12% to 20% variances in the active ingredient (oxycodone) in their pills. Which if i am understanding this correctly, they can be + or - 12 to 20% of the actual amount of oxycodone per tablet? Can someone with the expertise or knowledge (like a pharmacist or a doctor) explain this to us who have heard this and don't understand? I personally suffer with chronic pain from a construction accident 20 yrs ago in which my back was broken in 7 places along with a lot of muscle and nerve damage which has left me on disability and in chronic pain after 4 surgeries and 7 levels of my...

How Can I Get My Pm Doctor To Switch Me From Percoset Roxicontin
Hi, I am currently prescribed 10/325 oxycodone 4 times a day, I REALLY want to get my PM doctor to switch me to Roxicodone but don't know how to go about asking him without sounding like a druggie, I have tried my husbands Roxi's twice and they help me better and last longer, just not sure how to word the request, last visit the dr offered to switch me to morphine but honestly that scares me to be on morphine ## I'm not surer why the Morphine would scare you, when it's not as strong and dangerous as the Oxycodone you are currently taking. What does is his Roxicodone? It contains the active ingredient Oxycodone, which is the same as the narcotic in your Percocet, but the Percocet also contains Acetaminophen, which helps the Oxycodone to work better. ## Tell your doctor yo...

kvk tech oxycodone 30 mg
Regarding KVK Tech oxycodone 30mg / K-9 ...Garbage ! I have serious pain from two separate problems. Bottom line is Walgreens switched from Activis to KVK recently and I noticed the difference within one day, pain waking me more than usual and early withdrawal sensations. I should add that I don't misuse or abuse, all I want is pain relief. I'm fed up with fighting every step of the way to manage my pain (resulting from injuries sustained as a firefighter/ medic and a connective tissue disease) Thanks to the war on drugs and so many people overdosing, the government has the doctors and pharmacies all running scared, etc.. So people who are legit and truly suffering every day are screwed. Seems like they forgot about us. I wish these people AND the addicts/ abusers could feel wha...

oxycodone purple
Lots of questions on identification of pills LOL. Have any of you been subjected to having to purchase Oxycodone manufactured by KVK Tech? Over a year ago the pharmacies started pushing these pills on several of us. They don't work and have awful side effects. Anyone else had bladder, attitude, pain relief problems? ## Hello, Susie! How are you? Yes, many people have been complaining about the tablets from KVK Tech, as well as several from a few other manufacturers. It isn't just you that's having an issue with them. 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. Have you spoken to your doctor about the problem? They may be able to prescribe a different m...

Finding a Doc to prescribe Oxycodone in Springfield Mo
I have a very bad neck injury and I'm taking 4 x 10mg oxycodone a day for pain. I've moved to Springfield recently and all of the doctors offices tell me "Oh, our policy is never to prescribe narcotics." Even the hospitals won't prescribe it and have a family practice docs list and at the bottom of the page the disclaimer states none of the above doctors will prescribe narcotics. I need help anyone know a good doctor with in 200 miles of Springfield Mo. who will prescribe oxycodone? ## I can provide you with links that may help you in your search for pain management doctors that specialize in prescribing narcotics; however, there really is no way anyone can know ahead of time what these doctors are or are not willing to prescribe, as that is based on the doctor's...
