how long does oxycodone side effects last

I was prescribed percocet 5-325 for a toothache. I haven't taken them in a couple days BT the dizziness hasn't went away and I keep having hot flashes. Is this normal or should I go back to the emergency room?? ## Hello, Heather! How are you feeling? Side effects shouldn't last that long, after stopping them. Have you visited a dentist, about the tooth issue, yet? If you have an infection, it could be what's causing these symptoms. 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. ...

Oxycodone HCl 5mg doesn't last long enough
2 Replies RSS
Hey! So a little background on myself, I have been dealing with back pain for over 5 years, and finally switched to a new clinic who has confirmed that I have MS and Ankylosing Spondylitis Reactive Arthritis. I also have 2 discs out of place (L3 and L4). My doctor recently started me on Oxycodone HCl 5mg every 4-6 hours, but not to exceed 4 per day. Well here is my issue: they last a whopping hour and a half tops. So then I have to sit around in pain while being a stay-at-home mother to a 2 y/o, for at least another 2 hours. But I don't want to take more than prescribed, and I am not sure what to do at this point. Is there anything that lasts longer than this?? Thank you in advance! ## Hello, KLM0116! How are you? It is normal for your doctor to want to start you off with the lowest... ...

I was on oxycodone, 40 mg. and live in N.J.. The pharmacy's are telling me that as soon as they run out of it , it will only be available in oxycontin, has anyone else come accross this issue, it happened last month, 7-08.? ## yes,i also take the same thing,and i was also told the same thing.I live in Tennessee. ## That is exactly correct. Due to rampant abuse and theft, the time released Oxycodone is no longer available for generic production, only the name brand will be available. ## Yes, I have heard the same thing. I live in NJ. It was because of a lawsuit. The brand name company doesnt want to keep losing their business to the manufacturer of the generic. I have been on oxycodone for 5 years. I am currently without insurance and had to pay 100% of the generic. It cost 424.00 fo... ...

what happens if you take percocet and it is expired ## When did it expire? If it is within one year, it is still as potent as if it were still in date. All Rx's usually start losing their effectiveness at a rate of 5-20% each year. But otherwise safe to take expired unless discolored or crumbling. ## Well at least Im not the only one that knows the OP's dont work, and the old OCs were the brand until the end of last year. The old OCs work. I know that Walgreens had the OC's as generic but then was told not to sell them as Generic but sell them as brand. I did fill a perscription with 40 OCs brand and then noticed that they said OC on them. I have called a lot of Walgreens and they don't say much over the phone. I had two percrips filled as brand and saw that they were OC... ...

i would like to see how the pills look to make sure im getting the right medication ## Since there are different formulations of Oxycodone available, the time released, the immediate release and the regular release, the last two of which are also available as generics, I cannot possibly list descriptions and markings for all the tablets on the market. Oxycodone is also available combined with Acetaminophen in several products, such as the brand names Percocet, Roxicet or Endocet and this is also available as generics. What are the markings on the ones you have? That is what enables us to identify them for you. I can tell you that if you are on the time released formulation, Oxycontin, they are very easy to identify, since they are only available in the name brand, which is manufactured ... ...

I have chronic neck and shoulder pain and have been getting 30 mg oxycodone outside of the doctor. my friend moved out of state. how can i get a doctor to prescribe them to me? please help running out ## Hello, Nickelboy! How are you? Well, you're not going to be able to go to a doctor and just ask them to prescribe Oxycodone. It is a controlled substance and doctors are taught to view that as being drug seeking behavior, so they'll usually refuse to prescribe anything. You'll need to see a doctor, get a diagnosis and assessment, then discuss your treatment options. Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that co... ...

Walgreens as of last week is NOT taking ANY kind of discount card or their own discount card to cover this medication. It went from $107.00 to 168.00$. What the heck is going on. Its either they are telling everyone how much you can be perscribed or killing us with the prices. I couldn't get my ER medicine due to the increase!!!! Its never ending.I know they got in trouble in Fla. Owing 80 million dollars in fines, so we are now paying for their mistakes, again!!!!! ## Im talking about Oxycodone 30mgs IR ## Hello, Sunny!

I live in Jacksonville Florida and have been on Oxycodone HC 30 mg for about 4 Years and never had any problem getting them filled. But Know in the last Year it is so hard to get them filled. Can someone tell me a good place to get them filled. And why is such a problem know? ## Several issues arose in Florida and the biggest one that I think has been affecting the supply is that most pharmacies were found to be ignoring the laws that state how much they can order and keep in stock each month. So, prior to the past year when the crackdown occurred by the DEA and FDA, they were basically obtaining an unlimited supply. However, now they can no longer do so, because their ordering practices are being very closely scrutinized. Learn more Oxycodone details here. As to where you can get them ... ...

Dr in Galveston Texas who is able to prescribe pain medication like Vicidan ## Hello, Sundowner! How are you? You'll need to see a specialist to have such medications prescribed, due to the new requirements set forth by the DEA last year. The FDA lists this as 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. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ...

Oxycodone Itching

I used to take half an Oxycodone 5/500 as needed for cervical for neck pain and it worked fine. Last night I took a whole dose for the first time because of sever stomach pain from vomiting all day. I may have eaten something bad the day before but there was nothing more in my stomach and the pain kept me awake (but I was exhausted from the ordeal). My refill is Endocet 5-325. I guess I had an allergic reaction because my feet started burning in the middle of the night and I was going insane. I iced them in a pan of cold water and ice for as long as I could (30 seconds in/30 seconds out) until I finally felt numb and fell asleep. Woke up late afternoon to the burning itch in my feet - worse than before - and burning, itching palms as well. It was too late to go to my doctor or urgent ca... ...

I have been using Hydrocodon-Acet 5/325 AMN (or AMNEA) since surgery about 6 years ago. I don't take it as a regular med although for a month in the Re-hab I was given it at least once a day as a sleep aid. At home I took it as a pain reliever only when needed and lately I have been in need of sleep and take one at bed-time about twice a week. Now it is being treated as a narcotic and I am worried about it. I haven't seen the surgeon who did the last surgery since he saw me about 3 months after and he wanted to see me one more time. Unfortunately I could not get any more transportation to see him and so I cancelled. That was about 7 months ago. At that time I was sleeping better. Now I can't get any more of the Hydrocodone without his approval. I haven't asked my GP to d... ...

How do I ask my doctor to raise the dosage without her thinking i'm an addict or something ## You should just honestly tell her that you've been taking them as prescribed, but are having more pain than usual. It is perfectly normal for your body to get used to the dosage you're taking of any medication that you've been taking for a long time and for it to no longer work as well.

1 Reply RSS
Is Mylan not offerring this drug in the u.s. anymore? The pharmacies are now saying they can only order from a manufacturer with the imprint "224" on it. Any answers would be appreciated. The "224" has sooooo many fillers in them, that you end up having to take 2-3 for one of your brand. absolutely NO help with pain. ## Hello, Talapia! How are you? There is a shortage, one almost always occurs during the last few months of the year and the first few weeks of the new year, so it's likely that your pharmacy is unable to get any others in, at this time. Additionally, their options are limited, if their supplier is no longer offering the other one. In most cases, they just order whichever one they're being offered for the cheapest price. And this website does not man... ...
