5 milligram oxycontin capsule
one half is pink the other is white, it has APO on the pink side and 020 on the white side ## THIS IS NOT OXYCODONE! The capsule marked APO 020 is Omeprazole Delayed Release 20mgs. I checked several sources, and your capsule sounds suspect, the capsule with this marking should be pink and reddish brown, it does not have white on it. Here's an image for you: Capsule Image Omeprazole is a generic for Prilosec which helps prevent the production of stomach acid. There aren't any Oxycodone meds with that marking. ...

percocet withdrawal- weird ones
I have taken hydrocodone for years and then changed to Percocet. Ive been taking it for a year and a half. From 20-40 mg a day. This is the end of day 2 withdrawing from it. Ive had weird symptoms such as watery mouth, chapped lips, burning feeling in stomach, nausea, more hungrier than usual, anxiety, crying, leg pain, decrease in sleeping. I will fall asleep and wake up and stay up after a couple hours. Has anyone had similiar symptoms? ## I forgot to add that im having these electric shock sensations thats worse when walking. They are like zaps. ## Hello, Trish! How are you? First of all, what were you taking? Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, it is only available in a maximum dosage of 10mgs of the Oxycodone and 325mgs of the Acetaminophen. There is no 20 or 40mg dosage... ...

What To Take For Break Through Pain
I have been on Oxycontin ER 80mg twice a day for almost 7 years and it has been moderately to sometimes completely effective in eliminating my chronic abdominal pain. However, there are times (1-2 times a week, or so) when I can't get the pain under control. Currently, I cut one of the pills in half, which I know I shouldn't do, but it does what I want it to. Considering the strength of the Oxy that I'm on, what would be a better alternative to what I've been doing? I was considering asking my DR for an Rx of OxycoDONE (same thing but faster acting) for the break through pain an, if I do, what strength should I ask for? Or, if that's not a good idea, then what else would you suggest? Any help would be greatly appreciated! THANK YOU! ## Discuss your problem w/ your Dr... ...

If sustained release is it 80 or 240mg ?
My husband and I are having a debate...I take 80mg of oxycontin SR three times daily. Does my narcotic blood level stay at a steady 80mg or 240mg daily? ## Well, it isn't going to say at any 'steady' level, because it's always going to vary somewhat, due to activity, fluid intake, what you eat and etc. But since the doses are split you essentially always have some processing out, when you're adding more, so you'd be looking at close to the 80mgs. Learn more Oxycontin details here. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## Hi Verity, I don't know how much help this will be to your debate, but from what I could gather, the apparent elimination half-life of oxycodone following the administration of OxyContin was 4.5 hours compared to 3.2 hours for immedi... ...

I find my self wanting to nap all the time
I been taking 1 a day, half in the morning and half in the afternoon. I work a very physical job and suffer from aches and pains. I'm fine at work, but at home need to nap alot.sometimes just hours after I get up. Is this the percocet? ## no, your being tired is a side effect of busting your ass at work. ## I have been reading that breaking the pill in half releases the medication much faster and much more powerful than taking them whole, that could be a factor for wanting to sleep so much along with what Jigga stated about busting your butt at work. ## Percocet contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, so the drowsiness, in this case, has nothing to do with cutting or breaking the pill, as it is a regular release. The drowsiness has to do with the fact that Oxyco... ...

As to the capsule, if there are no markings, it's really hard to try and guess what it is.

Hydrocodone and oxycontin Metabolize
Do hydrocodone and oxycontin metabolize differently? ## From what I could gather, Oxycodone is extensively metabolized and eliminated primarily in the urine as both conjugated and unconjugated metabolites, while Hydrocodone is primarily metabolized in the liver (though some metabolites may be passed via urine). Also, the half life of each drug is different. Hydrocodone's half life is 3.8 hours and OxyContin tablets exhibit a biphasic absorption pattern with two apparent absorption half-lives of 0.6 and 6.9 hours, which describes the initial release of oxycodone from the tablet followed by a prolonged release. I hope this helps to answer your question! ...

need to find a pain management in kentucky
Does anyone know a pain clinic that perscribes oxycodone and doesn't judge you? ## Hello, Superm! How are you? Due to the new regulations, all doctors must proceed with extreme caution when prescribing controlled substances, or they risk losing their license to practice medication. Oxycodone is a very potent narcotic analgesic that can be habit forming and is very frequently abused, so you really just have to be prepared to jump through the hoops, if you want a doctor to prescribe it for you. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Do you have a PCP that could refer you to someone? ## How many gallons of water does it take to detox your body of xanax? Like three and a half bars? How many gallons of water and how many days? Does anyone have an idea? ...

oxycotin cr 60 mg tablet VS 30mg. Morphine Sul ER
What is equal in mgs? I have been prescribed a 60 mg. of OxyCotin ER. Now the dr. is suggesting I use 30 mgs. of Morphine Sul ER. Can you give me the mgs. that equals the 60 mg.OxyCotin ER . What would the mg. difference be to get the same pain relieving results? It's not the dr.; it's the drug plan I have that is now demanding this be changed. Awaiting your comments! Eva ## Hello, Eva! How are you? Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so you'd actually need 90mgs of the Morphine to equal the same analgesic effect of 60mgs of Oxycontin. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## is there ... ...

Whats The Difference Between Percocet Morphine
I've been taking percocet 7.5/350 mg. for 3 yrs. I was recently prescribed morphine 15mg-cr and I am not getting much pain relief from the morphine. I thought and was told morphine is stronger than percocet but I got more relief from the percocet than I do from the morphine. I of course plan on telling my dr. asap but was just woundering in the meantime. ## Actually, Oxycodone is one and half times stronger than Morphine, plus the Percocet also contained Acetaminophen, which helps the Oxycodone to work better. And not every medication works for everyone that tries it, so it could just be that the Morphine isn't effective for you and you may need to switch back to Oxycodone, or Percocet. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Morphine ER is a extended release where as Perc... ...

Having trouble finding self pay pain managment in Va
I have been reffered to pain management for protruding disks putting pressure on my nerve root in my back. Every pain management place that I have tryed to get into will not accept self pay. I do not have health insurance and really need to get in one fast because my job requires me to lift heavy things and bend over constantly. I stay in agony all day even with the 15mg oxycodone I have prescribed to me because I am running out and know I cannot get more until I get in pain management so I take only about half of what I need to make it last. I cannot afford insurance and I don't want to have to quit my job because I work for good people. If anyone knows a pain mangement clinic in the hampton roads area of Va that accepts cash PLEASE respond. Thank you ## Hello, Rob! How are you doi... ...

Oxy 30s impossible to find at Walgreens in Clearwater
I've been trying to fill a script for 180 oxycodone 30mg since Jan 5 with no luck. I spent the better part of the day today looking again. I was told by a pharmacist that the oxy 30s are being re-formulated and are on back-order. I found them at Baylife pharmacy on Gulf to Bay for a ridiculous price, $7 per pill. The SweetBay on 580 in Dunedin had them but would not fill my script as I am not an existing customer. I went back to my Dr. and had him write my script for 15s instead, the caveat was he cut it in half, but hey, half my script is better than none of it. Anyway, the Walgreens on Roosevelt and 58th filled 102 oxy 15s for $60.92 (with a perscription discount card I got off the internet) at 3:00 this afternoon. This is totally f***ed. Next Dr. visit, I am going to tell my Dr. ... ...
