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...

Oxycodone in Southern California
My doctor prescribed Oxycodone 10 mg on the 21st of July; it's still not filled. I went to my regular pharmacy, Walgreens and I was told they don't have it, and should ask my doctor to prescribe something different. So now the pharmacist is a doctor? This medicine was prescribe by him because it was the best solution to my retractable pain of my spine literally dissolving which is compressing my nerves. I have three blown discs in my cervical area and three blown discs, one with a 9 mm synovial cyst in it, in my lumbar area which is causing Levoscoliosis. I called every pharmacy within my area and not one could help me. I was rejected by all until I called Costco. My roommate took it over, and the tech told her she needed to have the doctor put the ICD - 9 code on it. She took i...

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...

generic oxycodone
David was mentioning the binders/fillers that are used in the oxycodone. I believe that the binders/fillers are why I am having such a problem with any oxycodone manufactured by KVK Tech. I have gotten bladder infections (no history of this problem), head aches, no pain relief (Major issue, cause what is a pain pill for?), attitude issues that are unreal. I was taking oxycodone 30mg, then the 20mgs, and now I am on oxycodone 10mg for break through pain. I have had problems with all 3 of the oxycodone whenever they are KVK Tech. Changed pharmacies repeatedly and have listed KVK Tech products as "I am allergic". This past week when I picked up my oxycodone 10mg, guess what, this independent pharmacy had nothing but the KVK Tech. ## Hi Susie, How's everything going? I believe w...

oxycodone 30 mg m's
I live in honolulu and many pharmacies either don't have generic oxycodone 30 mg or they say they only fill prescriptions of this pain killer for regular customers. Pharmacies will not disclose over the phone availability ## Hi Jay, How's it going? I believe you are right about most pharmacies not wanting to disclose that type of information over the phone, especially since they don't know if you are a legitimate customer or a potential thief. They take the same cautionary approach here on the main land as well. So in many cases you'll find that you have to literally drive around from place to place in order to fill what you need. Of course building a customer relationship with certainly pharmacies can only help in the matter. But I'm sure it would save us all a lot ...

oxycodone acetaminophen5 325
does this effect your breathing and what is the 5 mixture ## Hello, K! How are you? This is 5mgs of Oxycodone coupled with 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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. And yes, it may affect your breathing, because it can cause depression of the CNS. Thus, it might be contraindicated with some medical conditions, some other medications and could be dangerous if you are not tolerant to it. Are there any other questions or concerns?

small white pill 48 10 on one side v the other
My doctor prescribed this pill to me on friday (2 days ago). I am on a comp program for my meds and have been prescribed oxycodone 5mg before like this but different brand. This time I am experiencing some sort of reaction (small red circular splotches) have shown up on my skin around my neck and chest areas. Any ideas? Could it be the hydrochloride? ## Call your doctor or pharmacy right away generics can be 20 percent different

doctors willing to prescribe oxycodone in phoenix
Please please please someone direct me to a doctor who will listen and prescribe the amount of ocycodone my son needs. Pain management clinics are a joke and fall short of what we know will keep him comfortable until they can do the therapy or procedures that may be able to get him out of pain so he doesn't have to take it. He only needs 60 mg a day in 4 15 mg doses. That is what we've found works and makes it so he doesn't get sick from the meds and is out of the considerable pain he is in. He can't work because they won't give him enough to function. I have spent so much money I dont have to take care of him! He has Ahccs healthcare coverage! They only give him 3 10mg pills a day which falls short of the care he needs and is in so much pain. I am at my wits end! We ar

switched from Hydroco10-325 to oxycodone 5-325..withdrawals possible?
Is is possible to have withdrawals from hydrocodone, even though I am now taking oxycodone? Bad sleep, short of breath, anxiety, extremely tired. I thought I was sick, but I recall feeling like this when I was going off another addictive medication. I take klonopin to help me sleep, but want to take a hyrocodone right now to see if my anxiety will ease up...Any suggestions? ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? No, Oxycodone is slightly stronger than Hydrocodone, so you shouldn't be experiencing withdrawals. Those same side effects could be due to starting the new medication, though. 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 they eased up? ## I had a total hip ...

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in seattle washington
Severe Back pain - ptsd - severe head aches. looking for doctor maybe VA will VA perscribe.. also they lost my medical records ## Hello, Brandon! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain, no one should have to suffer. However, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. I know most VA hospitals have pain management programs, so you could try contacting them. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## VA will not prescribe opiates. My Dad suffers as well and they just overload him with NSAIDS and recommend neck surgery. We are not sure that would be a great idea for someone 70+ with PTSD and no discs between C5, C6 and C7 ## I can relate, also have ptsd and back problems, all i can say is this: getting on the opiate tra...
