I was released from the hospital today & they gave me four rxs one of them is oxycontin 40mg x 60 pills. My wife went to our local pharmacy & when they rang up the total she cried. It can to over $600.00 dollars $425.00 dollars was for the 40 milligram oxycontin pills x60 pills is there a generic or even better ( since we don't have insurance ) a way to contact the company to see if they can help ?

No, there is no generic of Oxycontin currently available, they were all discontinued due to the great risk of diversion. The FDA felt that if it was only made by one company, then the supplies on the market would be easier to track and monitor.

However, if you have no insurance, the manufacturer Purdue does have an assistance program you can apply for. You must meet the qualification requirements and for a narcotic medication, you are only given a one month supply and each month, they require a new prescription from your doctor.

You can view the program information and access the application at the following link:

Purdue Assistance

If you qualify, these programs do actually help. I am considered self-employed, so I have no insurance and just received approval for a medication I needed from a different company.


Are there any questions or comments?
