i have been on these 40 mg pills twice daily for about two weeks with Vicodin es 3 daily for break through, The oxy's only seem to last about 4 hours but they do kick in quicker on an empty stomach. I feel like they give me rush in th beginning, then after that its all down hill. i dont think the time release is much use, there new patent really is unproffessional and needs much more lab test to be done as well as they put less oxycodone in these op's which is a straight scamm, because they have a monopoly going on this drug and no competition with the generic companies. We need to contact purdue and the fda and complain and take our scripts to another pharm company. Make Purdue lose money and suffer just like us people in pain. Be proactive my people and take action. Much respect NYC....

Well, first, whether or not something works has nothing to do with if it is giving you a rush or not, anytime you are taking something regularly, the effects of it will gradually wear off.

Second, the FDA did approve this, so somehow, Purdue managed to show that it is releasing appropriate amounts of the medication for the time period it is supposed to do so.

However, there have been many complaints that they do not seem to work as well as the original formula and also that they can cause odd side effects.

I suggest that you report these problems to both Purdue and the FDA, that is really the only way to get them noticed, the more people that complain, the more attention they will pay to it. You can report the problems at the following numbers:

Purdue Pharma number for drug safety/medication issues:


FDA MedWatch number:

I am a ccp and have been for past 9 year's. Have taken oxycontin 20mg.4x daily and 7.5mg percocet. I went from listing all the way's to committing sucide so it didn't look like sucide to finding a doc who precribed oxycontin. I finally got my life back. This med didn't make me feel drugged was a Godsend! Then in april this year i was given the new op's. While i did not have the nausea..rashes. I am back to those horrible headaches from neck injuries. I have tried convincing myself the op's are the same as oc but can no longer beleive this. These just are not the matter how doc's and purdue spin's it. These barely cover my pain issues. And they are more expensive than the old.Since taking these pills i have started having heart pain and palpitation's and really wierd feeling's in my chest. Has anyone else had these problem's. I am more tired and sleepy and rundown. Lost my apetite.feel achey and fluish.Am having regular sugar crashes and higher blood pressures. I have tried just about every drug for pain relief and the oxycontin's were the only med's that allowed me to live my life without feeling drugged.There is a class action suit..anyone signed up? I know this new op has harmed my health..i feel it in my bones.
