Oxycodone 30mg Shortage In Florida
47 Replies RSS
This is a nightmare!! I suffer from multiple auto-immune diseases such as Connective Tissue Disease, R.A, Livedo, Raynauds, & traces of Lupus. All of which cause EXCRUTIATING PAIN!! On top of all of those, my body attacks itself 24/7!! Over the years the doctors have tried a ridiculous amount of different pain medications. I called it the 'medication game', & it was anything but fun!! Either there was minimal to no relief with them, or they made me feel awful! They tried everything from Percocet 10mgs, Endocet, Methadone 45mgs per day, oxycontin, Hydromorphine 4mgs tablets & 8 mg tablets, & all medicatons are/were accompanied by Ibproufen 800 mgs capsules. During one hospital visit they even had me on a conjunction of Dilauded 8mgs PLUS oxycontin 20 mgs, every 3 ... ...

2012 Oxycodone 30mg Shortage In Florida
1048 Replies RSS
My spouse, who is in severe, chronic pain, has been a customer of Walgreens for many years. We live in Pinellas County, Florida. Everyday this week we have driven from Walgreen's to Walgreen's trying to fill his prescription for Roxicodone 30mg, to no avail. I cannot get any help from his regular pharmacy. I know that it's dangerous for them to tell a total stranger which store has them in stock, but I don't understand since they know him, why they can't call around or give us any assistance. I am at a total loss as to what to do & would appreciate any information that you could provide. It is so hard to see him in so much pain. Thank you. ## I had the same thing happen to me. Went to the same Walgreens for over a year. The pharmcist knows I have metal rods in my... ...

2011 30 mg Oxycodone Shortage
352 Replies RSS
I am a 51 y/o who lives in Florida, suffering from chronic back pain, and have been prescribed to take up to six 30mg oxycodone tablets a day for over two years by my Pain Management doctor. However, when I went to fill my prescription almost 4 weeks ago, my pharmacy told me their distributor had stopped shipping oxycodone to Florida pharmacies. Since then, I have personally visited about 100 pharmacies but have been unable to find them in stock anywhere. As a former paralegal, I attempted to research the situation, but could only confirm that the DEA has yearly quot on all controlled substances (for oxy's is 98 million grams in 2011). From I gather from the Internet, it appears that the ENTIRE state of FLORIDA is not getting any shipments of oxycodone 30 mg. from distributors, but ... ...

Problem getting 30mg oxycodone

I live in MD and it seems like every drugstore I go to tell me (we don't carry them. I'm at my wits end with this s#it. I did find some 242's but I heard they were no good. I am in pain and need some help ## What city/county you in ## Unfortunately, we are not into the time of year when shortages of controlled substances usually occur due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their yearly allotted limit, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. Every year that I can remember, this has resulted in demand exceeding supply and a shortage occurring for the last few months of the year. 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 m... ...

Oxycodone - Pinellas County FL?

I too, like many of the posters on this forum, have a legitimate script for 30mg Oxy's. Because of "whatever" the real reason (Ex. DEA, Quota's. FL Shortage) I cannot get this script filled. I've been lucky the last 2 months because my doc switched me to 15's, which seem to be a little more accessible for some reason. However, this isn't an option today due to my doc being on vacation... Does anyone know of a place that has these damn things in the Clearwater/Tampa Bay area? Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks! ## ONE STOP PHARMACY, IN TAMPA HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY OFF OF ARMENIA ## How much is one stop pharmacy? I payed almost $800 for 180 last month in lutz and I can not do that again.

I'm very sorry that you're having a problem getting your prescription filled. Have you found them, yet?

I have used oxycodone for years, rsd, and started the brand again several years ago during shortage. they worked so well I was able to drop from 240 to 180 in two months. Xanodyne 30mg. They sold to Mallencroft and are very expensive now. I tried a generic- Activis recommended by pharmacy. Not only did they NOT WORK they gave me severe anxiety - the same feeling I got when they tried to give me anti depressants for pain. Horrifying side effects- I was extremely anxious, had paranoia and negative thoughts, afraid to be alone. The pharmacy replaced with the brand but it took five days to get back to baseline with pain and psyche. I am terrified now of the generic but the brand are over 1,000 a month, half w/insurance. In the past I have been given all sorts of drugs to try for chronic pai... ...

oxycodone manufacturer not including ingredients
2 Replies RSS
I have been on Oxycodone 30 mg for several years and from several manufacturers. Recently I was given 30mg from a manufacturer called Caraco. I was taking up to two at a time followed by a third in a hour because I was not getting any relief. I spoke to my dr and explained I was going thru withdrawals and getting no relief from my pain with the meds that have always worked in the past. He went ahead and prescribed 15 mg of oxycodone so I could get a different manufacturer due to my pharmacy saying there was a shortage of Oxycodone they were not able to get any of the 30 mg due to a shortage of the drug. The only manufacturer available was Caraco. I looked them up and found they have been in trouble before for not putting the ingredient in the medicine. How can we as patients be sure we ... ...

having too many problems filling my msir 30mg script monthly so need to change...what dose of oxycodone is equal to that?
7 Replies RSS
For approx the past six months I have had even more problems than usual filling my morphine ir 30 mg. twice there have been drug shortages. I need to change to an equivilant medication like roxicodone,or something similar. What dose of oxycodone is equal to 4 X msir 30mg per day??? I take a toal of 120 a month, in additon to taking a low dose of methadone as well. I dont want to increase the methadone so need to find something to replace the msir 30mg's. ## Morphine is one a half times stronger than Oxycodone, so you'd actually need a lower dose of the Oxycodone. 20mgs of it for each 30mgs of the Morphine. 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 the... ...

need a pharmacy to fill my script in tampa florida or nearby. my prescription is oxycodone 30's,I get 180 of them.I also have insurance and hear places are only taking cash.My appointment is tomorrow,3/23...please help!! ## I'm sorry, but we have no way of knowing which pharmacies have any given medication in stock, or what insurance plans they accept. In addition, there seems to be a current shortage of Oxycodone, due to manufacturers having hit their yearly production limits, so many places are having trouble getting it in stock. It might be easier to ask your doctor to prescribe any alternative medication, until production returns to normal in January. Are there any other comments or questions? ## I really need a pain dr. and cant find one over going to a suboxin clinic, they... ...

my dr. has told me that he can only prescribe by law 120 oxcodone 30mg. for a month supply. anyone heard about this i'm in florida? ## Florida's been having a lot of complications for the past couple years regarding Oxycodone in general. Most people can't even seem to get their script filled to begin with, let alone having a 120 cap limit! To help answer your question though, I believe the users in the thread below may be of better assistance in so far as knowing what's truly going on there in Florida and their laws against prescribing certain amounts: /Discuss/2012-Oxycodone-30mg-Shortage-In-Florida-229262.htm I think posting in that thread will open the door for more exposure to your type of question, since there are over 500 responses about this topic.
