oxycodone G161 round white
round white G161 oxycodone ## My doctor took me off 30mg oxycodone and put me on 10mg oxycodone got them filled at local pharmacy i think there out dated they are generic so i think they are old because there totally not helping my pain. ## I was on 30mg oxycodone now on 10 mg oxycontin G161 are they outdated shelf life anyone know anything about this generics how long thave they quit making them ## I would guess that it has more to do with the drop in your dosage, rather than how old the pills may be. If you were up on 30mgs and your body has gotten used to taking that dosage and you suddenly dropped down to 10mgs, then it is not going to help your pain anywhere near as much as the 30mgs did. Oxycontin has the same ingredient, it is Oxycodone. The difference is that Oxycontin is a 12 h... ...

oxycodone
How many years does oxycodone tablets last?? ## How many years will oxycodone tablets last and still be good to take? ## Well the latest box I got from the pharmacy (original brand-name, not generic) tells me that my 40mg OxyContin was made in May 2007 and expiry is May 2010, so we can assume three years although pills are normally pretty well OK for a year or so after the printed expiry date in my experience. ## 9 out of 10 meds don't expire ## To add some specifics and explain the reason for the different expiration dates, such as Michael mentioned…. If they are in the original, factory sealed container, so they aren't exposed to the elements that cause degradation, such as heat, light and moisture, then they have a 3 year shelf-life. However, once that conta... ...
