Sorry about the problem that you've having getting your medication. A large distributor was recently shut down on the east coast, which has left many pharmacies in a lurch, until someone takes over. Additionally, there are limits on how much any pharmacy can order in and keep in stock each month, so once they are out, they can't do anything about it. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Other than going to drugstores in your area and checking, I am not sure what else to suggest. Have you co... ...

Op 30 Can You Take Half
Can you take only half of a OP 30 pill? ## No, they are time released formulations of Oxycodone, so cutting it in half could result in too much of the medication being released at once and may cause an overdose. Learn more Oxycontin details here. Are there any other comments or questions? ...

oxycodone pricing
oxycodone prices have doubled in less than 30 days in tenn. rumor has it that the manufacturers ,being top 8 have been sold an now there is only 1 producer of this product! ## It's not that there is only one manufacturer, now. That is only relevant to the name brand time released product, Oxycontin. The current problem stems from the fact that each year the DEA sets a manufacturing limit on how much of any controlled substance can be made and distributed. The figure is based on prior year prescriptions, as well as information from the FDA and the manufacturers, once the total amount is determined, it is split between the manufacturers. Usually, this gives a very good idea of how much the market will demand in the upcoming year and helps minimize how much is out there to be stolen an... ...

pharmacies that will fill oxycodone
im cant find any drug stores taking new pain contracts in knoxville tn,if anyone has any info please email me ## HI, Wanda! Sorry about the problem that you're having. Do you have insurance? If so, then I'd suggest contacting them to see if they have a mail order pharmacy that you can use. That might make it easier to get your prescription filled. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Though they weren't being enforced for quite a long time, there are actually limits on how much of any controlled substance a pharmacy can order in and have in stock each month and earlier this year, the DEA started cracking down to enforce these limits. This has caused many pharmacies to have to refuse new customers for such medications, since once they are out each month, they are out and cannot... ...

Oxycodone IMM REL VS. TIME REL
WHICH WOULD WORK THE BEST SEVERE CONTINOUS BACK/NECK PAIN. I HAVE SUFFERED PAIN FOR MANY YRS FROM THE RESULTS OF A BROKEN NECK, DUE TO AN AUTO ACCIDENT. I DONT LIKE THE IDEA OF BEING "HIGH" OR ANYTHING, BUT NEED MEDS TO HELP TAKE THE SO CALLED EDGE OFF MY PAIN. ## For continuous intense pain, the time released formulations are usually used, because they can provide much longer pain relief. Though for pain management, many people end up using both, an immediate release to get faster relief, while waiting for the time released ones to kick in. The time released Oxycodone, which is available under the name brand Oxycontin, slowly releases the narcotic medication over a 12 hour time period. Since it's not all released at once, this also helps avoid the euphoric, high feeling for... ...

If I Normally Take 40mg Of Oxycodone What Would Be The Equivalant Dose Morphine Ir
what is the eqivalent dosage of morphine vs oxycodone? I currently take 40mgs of oxycodone, and would like to change to MS IR, what amount of MS IR is equal to 40mgs of Oxycodone? ## Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so an equivalent dosage would be 60mgs. However, you do need to make sure you taking the same formulation, since both Oxycodone and Morphine come in regular, instant and time released formulations. Thus, if you're taking the regular release formulation of Oxycodone, then you would need a regular release formulation, in that dosage, of the Morphine. The only 40mg Oxycodone available is the extended release, Oxycontin. Due to the dangers of overdose, from getting too much medication, at once, it is highly unlikely that your doctor is going to give ... ...

who will fill my oxycodone in Alabama
Having a hard time gettin my 180 30mg legal script filled ## How and were to fill my leagal script of oxycodone 30mg 180 ## Hello, Todd! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you're having. Unfortunately though, I don't have an answer for you. Shortages are very common this time of year, because all manufactures have a limit on how much of any controlled substance they can manufacture each year and once they hit that number, they can't manufacture and ship any more, until the new year, when they receive their new allotment amount. This was done to try to keep better track of the supply to curb theft and diversion. However, most years the projected demand is exceeded by the actual number of prescriptions written and many companies run out early. The best suggestion I can ... ...

Dilaudid as a Oxycodone replacement?
Hi I suffered a L1/L2 complete SCI injury some 4 years ago. After 6-7 weeks when the spinal shock wore off I noticed I had a burning pain in my lower groin area even though I can't really feel much below my hips, we thought maybe it was a UTI but all showed negative. It was diagnosed as chronic nerve pain and it never goes away, I get acute nerve pains in my legs ontop of this cronic pain. I have been taking 10mg Oxycodone four to five times per day and methadone 10mg once a day for the chronic pain + 800mg Gabapentin three times a day for the burning in my legs. The only way I have been able to keep my doses so low over the years is by being very hard on myself as to when to take the pain meds but as hard as I have tried I'm now going up to around 60mg total Oxycodone per day a... ...

What oxycodone dose is equal to 120 30mg morphine instant release monthly?
I currently take 20mg methadone twice a day with MSIR 30mg tabs 4 daily=120 total. I am trying to find which dose of oxycodone would be the equivalant of my current dose of Morphine IR. Its been VERY hard filling that script for approx 6 months now and is getting worse. So one option is switching to another medication. Some of the problem is that medicine isnt used as much as it once was. My monthly appt w/ nuerologist is in 2 weeks...so please answer this ASAP Also if any brand names are know thats fine...my insurance will prob substitute generic but brand names help when talking to doctors. Thanks everyone!!! ## You would need 20mgs of Oxycodone to equal each 30mgs of Morphine. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such a... ...

387 Watson,or oxycodiene
I currently take Watson 387 Vicodin. I'm wondering if porcacet, or Oxycontin, or any other pain medications might help my back pain better, and so i don't build up a tolerance to Vicodin maybe i should rotate every so often. I have a back injury related to a car accident. Any advice on alll the different pain medications on the market I'll appreciate it thanks..Scott ## Alternating medications is a possibility you will need to discuss with your doctor. This works well for some people, but it really depends on how your body reacts to any given medication and how fast you build up a tolerance to it. The problem, however, with switching to Oxycodone is that it is much stronger than the Hydrocodone in the Vicodin, so once you use it, switching back to the Hydrocodone is likely t... ...

doctors that prescribe anxiety medication and muscle relaxers
I have a chronic pain condition which is Interstitial cystitis (IC) I will not take oxycodone because I was on it for 4 years and it worked great for my pain but I had to keep upping the dosage and became addicted. So now I am on a different pain medication called the Butrans patch and even though it doesn't help as much as I would like it to, it helps with my daily life. So I am able to still do normal daily things. I also have back pain, I am not sure what it is from but the patch does nothing for that either. I am looking for a doctor who would have no problem prescribing me Zanaflex. I tried it once before and it helped tremendously (along with the patch). My other problem is anxiety, my doctor was prescribing me 2mg xanax twice daily. (My mother went into the appointment and ba... ...

10 mg Zohydro ER strength compared to 10 mg narco ?
Has anyone taken 10 mg hydrocodone tabs 1to 3 tabs at once to help with your pain. I want to know what I can expect in the strength of 10 mg er once taken . Is it the same as 1 hydro or much stronger ? I have some breathing issues taking 10 mg OxyContin but not with 15 -30 mg. IR 30 mg oxycodone. ## The FDA considers oxy and hydro to be morphine equivalents, but some feel oxy is stronger. Zohydro is a 12hr er med. Depending on how often you were taking oxy, to replace a 10mg er dose your doc would probably start you at 15mg or 20mg Zo and adjust from there. A problem with taking three ir norco doses at once is that each dose usually has 325mg of acetaminophen. While many docs feel that up to three grams of acetaminophen a day not a problem, it serves to analgesic purpose for real pain a... ...

oxycontin 60 mg
If I take 2 of the 30 mg oxycodone and I have the 60 mg oxycontin. Can you cut a 60 mg oxycontin in half and take it that way to get the immediate effect you get with taking 2 of the 30 mg oxycodone. I have to mail order my medications and there was a mix up and I have been taking for 15 years for chronic pain. Just trying to get by without going 2 hours to my dr to get a written script and then it would mess up my scripts again!! Thanks for the help. ## Hello, Susie! How are you? No, the new Oxycontin are actually tamper proof, so they prevent anyone from being able to do that. If you cut them up, you will just get a ball of goo that still releases the medication just as it should. However, there could also still be a risk of getting too much, at once, and suffering an overdose. This i... ...

The New Oxycontin Op
Does it hurt the op 40's if they are cut in half? I don't like to take the whole pill at once. ## Since these are time released tablets, it isn't advisable that you cut them in half, because even with the new formulation, it could still result in the Oxycodone being released faster, so you get too much in your body, at once. There are lower dosages available, have you tried asking your doctor about just prescribing a lower one? ## That's not correct you can cut them ...

Op 20 Pill Pink - cutting in half?
Is it possible to at least cut these in half in order to take a lower doseage? ## These are time released tablets and, even though they have tried to formulate them to prevent it, cutting them in half could still result in your getting too much of the medication released, at once. The Oxycodone in this is a very potent narcotic analgesic and getting too much at once could be very dangerous. If you require a lower dosage, you should contact your doctor, as they can prescribe them in a lower amount. Are there any other questions? ## I have cut these into quarters with no adverse affects. So it is basically become a 5mg dose. I like these because they do not contain acetaminophen like most other narcotic prescriptions. So one pill can last me up to 2 days. ...

Op 30 Pill
can i split one in half or quarter ## No, it is not safe to cut and divide these tablets. This is a 30mg Oxycontin tablet, which contains the narcotic Oxycodone in a time released formulation. Cutting or breaking the tablet could result in your getting too much of the medication, at once, which could result in overdose. The new formulation is supposed to help prevent this, but the danger is always there. If you need a lower dosage, you should speak to your doctor about prescribing it in a lower dose or different formulation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It is only safe to cut an oxycontin (op) inhalf if it is a 20mg or less cause cause the most a person should intake of instance release is 10mg unless said different from.doctor... due to case of overdose..

Cut a 10 mg oxycodone in half. It did have a score line down the middle. I feel fine, but never doing it again. Will I be ok? ## Hello, Adam! How are you? If it's the time released formulation Oxycontin, then no. That creates the risk of your getting too much of the medication, at once and puts you at risk of overdose. 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.

I know percocets have tylenol in them and i am worried about her overdosing on tylenol or the oxycodone in it. How much is to much? Also she usually don't take them all at once but she will take alot throughout the day. Today she got some that some that said 325Mg on one side and L403 on the other and she took 6 in like 2 hrs cause she felt little effects. I just worry about her. Please help me!!! ## Well, first off, the L403 were not Percocets. In fact, they dont even contain oxycodone. They are just plain Tylenol. Tylenol DOES NOT have barely any high effects to it at all. Some one can overdose on it ... ...
