Is Generic Oxycontin Available In The U.s. ?

Charles W. Says:

I've seen several websights selling what they say is Oxycodone, are they generic or what? Most if not all are in some other country.

Oxycontin is oxycotin, there is NO generic. Believe me I have asked many pharmacy's. The new ones, thanks to our junkies out there, don't work! Now I get to be in pain 24/7. And please don't reply about subsititues, I have liver disease so I am very limited to any other drugs out there. Unless they go back (and they don't intend to) this is what we have been dealt.

Check again Wtran1.....the real thing is still out there only sold by Ethex Pharm. As far as I could find out they are still in business.

As to foreign pharmacies, yes. they can have a generic. The U.S. cannot enforce proprietary patents outside of our borders, so companies in other countries can do a lot more than those in the U.S. can.

As was already stated, in the U.S. there is no generic available.

Feetfried, that is incorrect, the name brand is made by Purdue Pharma, not Ethex.


Are there any questions or comments?

I have been on Oxycontin 80mg for quite a few years for chronic and severe gastrointestinal pain and ever since they've discontinued the generics, I reach the Medicare donut hole in just a couple of months! WHEN can I expect the Oxycontin generic to be available once again?
