as oxycodone capsule-looks like Oxycontin breakthrough capsules ## Capsule with ETHEX 041 is 5 mg Oxycodone (generic Oxycontin) ## It is indeed 'oxycodone' 5mg.A pharmacist clarified this for me.It is not Oxycontin.Oxycontin is a brand name for a delivery system for oxycodone(generic drug and actual name) eneabling the drug to be given twice a day.There are tremendous advantages to this.The blood serum level of the pain reliever (oxtcodone) is kept w/out unchanging.No troughs of pain followed by another pill and a wave of relief-that begins to deminish within 3-hrs and is no longer reducing the suffering somewhere betwen 4-6 hours. This leads to forgetting how many the patient has taken,reduced pain relief-THE WHOLE POINT-life is made easier for family as the medicine is only gi... ...

ON A STICK LOLLI POP FASION AQTIC AT BOTTOM OF STIC 400MCG WHAT DOES IT DO HOW DOES IT EFFECT MY BODY ## Fentanyl, the active ingredient in Actiq is a very potent narcotic analgesic. The lollipop form is used to force a slow release of the medication in order to get better control of pain. Learn more Actiq details here. Since it is an opiate narcotic, it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything I can help with? Are there any comments or questions? ## I was taking Oxycontin until they switched it to OxyNeo. Not too sure how Health Canada cleared BHT as a safe ingredient; a chemical used in carpet cleaning. Well i had a bad reaction. Despite the fact I couldnt absorb it or something it made me really sick. ... ...

Where Can I Find Ethex Manufactured Oxicodone 40 Mg In Sacramento Ca
1 Reply RSS
the new reformulatedoxicodone 40 mg ones do not work and have bad side effects. ## I take it you are referring to the time released formulation Oxycontin? We've had many complaints about them not working as well as the old formulation and causing bad/unusual side effects. However, I'm sorry to inform you that there are no longer any generic versions of it on the market. The name brand Oxycontin is the only one that is now available. Having several on the market from various manufacturers made it harder to keep track of the supply and increased the risk of theft and diversion. There are generics available of the regular release formulation, which would be Roxicodone, but not for the time released. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Pharmacys That Still Have Ocs

im looking for a pharmacy that has 30mg oc not ops in minnesota, mpls perferably ## Due to the fact that the formulation change was made last year, it is very doubtful that you are going to find any pharmacy that still has the original Oxycontin formulation in stock. In addition, virtually every pharmacy in the U.S. sold out at the end of the year and into the new year, because there was a manufacturing shortage. Have you tried talking to your doctor about possibly using a different medication? ...

A small white round pill one side is blank and the other has a split down the middle with the numbers 100 and 155 on either side of the split. I was told this is a 30mg percocet?? ## I cannot find a listing for this tablet, however, I can tell you that there is no such thing as a 30mg Percocet. Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone and is available in a max dosage of 10mgs on the Oxycodone. Does anyone else have information on this tablet? ## if its 30 mg is not perccet. Percocet means oxycodone mixed with acetominophen or tylenol. percs are made in 5 and 10 mg. 30 mg is pure instant release oxycodone with no tylenol. these are called roxycodone brand named, also made in 15 mg. then there is oxycontin which the only difference is controlled release oxycodone made in 10, 20, 40 ,... ...

Yellow Pill P 40

I was told this yellow pill with P and a 40 on opposite sides was an oxy tamper proof. Not sure tho cuz what I have found on the net is that genetics have an OP. I'm from Canada so I'm not sure. Can anyone help me out? ## Purdue paid a fine and repattented there pill to be tamper proof to kiss the dea's, and the fda ass, and they made a tamper proof pill which is less potent and now they have no competition because they have a brand new patent for God only knows how long, So if you see the OC'S they are the left overs.. ## There are several people that have bought this pill on the street, from Canada as 40mgs of Oxycodone, however, we haven't been able to find anything that confirms that this is what they contain. And as to the actual Oxycontin manufactured by Purdue... ...

Generic Oycontin Approved In Canada
3 Replies RSS
On November 25, 2012 Canada finally approved the original OXYCONTIN for generic manufacturing and prescribing. ## There also in the process of approving the original formula in the United States as well! ## WHO is in the process of approving the original formula in the U.S.? THANKS. ## There are no changes being made to what's available in the U.S. at this time. Due to the high risks of abuse and diversion, Purdue's current formula is the only being manufactured and there are no plans to change that, since it enables them to keep better track of the supply. Learn more Oxycontin details here. These rumors have been going around for awhile now and there is nothing official that proves them to be true.

Tcl 224 Little Yellow Pill
3 Replies RSS
I found a little yellow pill with the imprints TCL 224 on it in my sons room. I would like to know what it is. I asked one of my friends and he said it was a generic oxycontin 40 mg. I looked it up and couldn't find anything on it. Thanks. ## Sorry it has 242 on it not 224 ## I can't find a listing for this, but I am sure that's because it is made by TimeCaps Labs and they make mostly over the counter products, such as generics or store brands of Tylenol, Advil, cold remedies and etc. They make very few prescription drug products and none of those are controlled substances, such as Oxycodone, so it can't be that. There is a pill marked 224 that contains Oxycodone, but it doesn't have the TCL marking on it, which is probably what confused your friend. I'd suggest ... ...

white oval pill 13 blank on other

Fat oval pill that is white an has A13teen on one side an blank on the other is a. Oxytocin same as a roxicodine 30 mg very powerful pain pill ## @JamesDavis, I haven't located a match to your pill, but still wanted to answer the other question you have... Oxytocin is a naturally occurring hormone that's made in our brain. And judging from your description I think you may have mistaken this for "Oxycontin", which contains a time-released version of Oxycodone. Roxicodone by comparison, is simply another brand name for Oxycodone in it's immediate-release form. Regarding the white pill, whereabouts did you find it at? Seems strange to me that there's no specific details on it when I go to run a search. ...

2 Replies RSS
I want to know if they are in fact oxycontin 80. Thank you ## Hi stewart, Based on the description you've provided, I can confirm that the pill you have is indeed Oxycontin (80 mg). Oxycontin contains oxycodone- which is an analgesic medication synthesized from poppy-derived thebaine. Oxycodone oral medications are generally prescribed for the relief of moderate to severe pain. Currently it is formulated as single ingredient products or compounded products. Some common examples of the compounded variety's are oxycodone with acetaminophen/paracetamol or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. The formulations are available as generics but are also made under various brand names. OxyContin is Purdue Pharma's brand for time-release oral oxycodone. The manufactu... ...

Opana
4 Replies RSS
Has anybody tried OPANA VS OC 80s. Any feedback would be helpful ## What dosage of the Opana? The Oxymorphone in it is actually twice as strong as the Oxycodone, so if you were taking 40mgs of it, then the equivalent dose of Oxycodone would be 80mgs. Both can be effective at controlling pain, it just requires a dosage adjustment. You should also know that there are no more Oxycontin OCs. Purdue has changed the formulation and they are now Oxycontin OP. Are there any questions or comments? Does anyone else have advice to add? ## i have and they work fair for pain but made me very tired. ## DO NOT GET THE NEW OPANA 40MG ER, THEY ARE JUCK A LORTAB 10/325 WORK BETTER BEFORE A OPANA WOULD BLOW OXYCONTIN THE NEW ONE (OP)AWAY BUT NOT NOW,MY DR PUT ME BACK ON THE NEW OPANA DO NOT WORK IN 2 WEEK... ...
