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...

What is a small round pink pill with NP on one side and 12 on the other?
Please help me identify this pill i found its pink round small has NP on one side and 12 on the other. ## Hi Angela, Based on the description provided, I've identified your round pink pill as Oxycodone (10mg). I'm not 100% certain on who the manufacturer is, but from what I could gather, I'm led to believe that it may be Dava Pharma. Oxycodone comes in various forms and is used to treat moderate to severe levels of pain. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Oxycodone Details I hope this helps! ## where did you identify this? ## Probably on pill identifier.

cannot fill my prescription for oxycodone 30 in florida
i have tried everywhere in my county that i live in florida, get the same answer from all the walgreens and the pharmacies in my area they are out and dont know when they will have it if ever again. i think this is a shame for a person who has a prescription from a doctor and is in severe pain all waking hours. i think this is also a shame because all it does is gives the drug dealers on the streets a reason to charge $20.00 a pill and laugh at us all the way to their bank. there has got to be some relief for us honest people that are suffering and work hard to have insurance and be up standing citizens. i thank our governor for making this problem worse in florida and feeding right into the drug dealer hands. please can someone help and get the honest people who suffer everyday the rel...

oxycodone effective duration
the length of time 3omg oxycodone remains in the therapeutic rang ## How long does oxycodone remain in the therapeutic range for effective pain relief? Thanks ## Hey Dave, Concerning your question about oxycodone's therapeutic range, I imagine this would vary somewhat for each individual depending on tolerance and other individual factors. However, from my own research I would probably base my answer off of oxycodone's 3.2 hour half life for the immediate-release formulation. After that time frame following administration, the medication would no longer be at its peak so to speak (was not trying to rhyme there lol). Perhaps this is why they often recommend taking 1 tablet every 4-6 hours, since this is when more than half of the dose would've already passed through your body...

blue pill v on one side 4812 other 2531
These are 30mg. Of oxycodone used for moderate to severe pain. ## Yes, the tablet with the 4812 V marking does contain 30mgs of Oxycodone, which is narcotic analgesic. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. However, a tablet with the 2531 V contains 1mg of Clonazepam, which is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Both of these medications also carry the risk of being habit forming. Are there any questions I can help with?

pain doc in las vegas
Need pain doc in Vegas who prescribes Oxycodone 30 mg. Very hard to find... ## Hi Melanie, Unfortunately, no one can really know ahead of time what a doctor is or is not willing to prescribe, as that is based on the doctor's discretion and not on someone else's previous appointment (especially since many doctor's are now worried about losing their licensing for prescribing too many narcotics). Some advice I can give you is to not specifically ask for any 'specific medication' when you see a new doctor. Just make sure to transfer or take a copy of all your medical records with you. Then, the best approach in my opinion, is to discuss up front and honestly what has or hasn't worked for you in the past. Most doctors will take it under consideration and hear you out ...

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...
