Oxycontin & mscontin
1 Reply RSS Share
Hey all, I was born with dislocated hips and have had more than 10 operations throughout my life since I was born to correct the issue, according to my dr. It was the worst case he has ever seen and my hip bones and joints have fused into my pelvis I can not open my legs at all or spread them I can not run or jump walking is extremely difficult and I get tired fast and my legs are in a lot of pain after 27 years I had enough of it so my bone dr referred me to a pain specialist. Fast forward to three years later now I’m 30 years of age. My only hope is for a complete hip replacement and after being on pain medication for the last 3 years nothing is working anymore. My dr had me on 60mg of oxyContin 3 times a day (180mg daily) and short acting oxycodone twice daily. Now, my question...

What is the difference between hydrocodone and oxycontin???
4 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking hydrocodone 10-325 for 8 or 9 years. And now my doctor wants to put me on oxycontin. I have never taken any before and he did not say what strength. What are the dosages??? Is it any better than the hydrocodone 10-325??? ## Hello, Tazman57! How are you? Oxycontin is a time released formulation of Oxycodone, the medication is slowly released over a 12 hour period. It is stronger than Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of Oxycodone to equal each 10mgs of Hydrocodone. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. It's available in varying doses starting at 10mgs and going all the way up to 160mgs. Is there anything e...

Yellow pill with APO R20
1 Reply RSS Share
My friend got this pill and said it was an OxyContin 20mg, but I don't think so! It was yellowish in color, a small tablet with APO on one side and R20 on the other. Could you please research this for me? ## You are correct, Apotex Canada lists this tablet as containing 20mgs of Rabeprazole, which is a generic for Dexilant, it is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to help treat, or prevent conditions, such as ulcers, heartburn, GERD, and gastritis. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Oxycontin Alternatives
3 Replies RSS Share
I would like to know if there is any pain medication that compares or is an alternative to oxycontin (80mg), besides opana? ## There is a time released Morphine on the market, as both a generic and under the name brand MS Contin. It is not as strong as Oxycodone, so you would require a higher dosage. If you were taking 80mgs of Oxycontin, then you'd need 120mgs of MS Contin. There is also a patch on the market, which contains the active ingredient Fentanyl, it is very potent, over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Are there any other questions? ## I am on 80mg oxycontin, what strength ms contin would I require as a equivalent? ## I broke 10 vertebrae in a serious accident a number of years ago. I have been taking Oxycontin 30mg ER for several years to help with chronic pain. My healt...

Oxycontin Vs Roxicodone
2 Replies RSS Share
I have a precipitation for Oxycontin 40 mg 3 times a day. One night before going to a doctor in the morning I took a Roxicodone 30 mg at 3:00 AM cause I didn't want to take my Oxycontin. The next morning around 7:45 - 8:00 AM my pain doctor did a urine drug test. I was told 2 different stories. One said the dr would be able to tell I took a Roxicodone and several pieces of advice said they are the same ingredients and the lab and dr would not be able to tell I took a Roxicodone. Can someone help me and tell me if the test result would come back that I took a Roxicodone rather than an Oxycontin? ## They both contain the same active ingredient, which is Oxycodone. It is an opiate narcotic, the FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such a...

Oxycontin And Oxycodone Urine Drug Test
168 Replies RSS Share
When taking a urine drug test, does oxycontin and oxycodone come up as the same drug? I took a 40mg oxycontin on a monday and was drug tested on thurs. I am tested once a month from my pain mangement dr. to make sure my oxycodone's are in my system. So will the 2 drugs show up as one or is there a differance in them with the drug test? ## No, there is not difference between them for a drug test, Oxycocodone is the active ingredient in both, so they will show up as the same thing. However, what you may run into is having a different level of it in your body than what they would expect if you were taking the exact amount prescribed. Some of the pain management clinics use tests that show the level in your body, so they can tell if someone is not taking their medications, at all, or if...

did they replace all the original oxycontin with this new crush resistance formula
80 Replies RSS Share
I heard that all the pharmacy replaced all the original oxycontin (OC) with this new formula that prevents anyone from crushing it. The new pills says OP on the one side instead of it saying OC. And if you still can get the original oxycontin (OC) do you now need to request it from your doctor so he can write you a prescription for the original oxycontin (the pill that says OC on one side instead of it saying OP ## The original Oxycontin has been discontinued and will no longer be available. Once pharmacies are out of their current stock, there will not longer be a supply of it out there. The new Oxycontin OP has been specially designed to prevent abuse, by retaining its time released properties, even if crushed or chewed. Otherwise, for pain, it works the same and still has the same si...

This is the number to Purdue when calling select Opt # 2 and explain the adverse reaction that you are having from the new reformulated Oxycontin. The number is 888-726-7535.

It sucks to live in pain it really does. Good Luck All ## The new Oxycontin OP has been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. However, there have been many complaints about it causing weird side effects or not working. To get someone to take notice of the prob...

Accidentally cut Oxycontin in half
9 Replies RSS Share
Wanted to break ambien in half but accidentally did it to my oxycodone 30mg instead. Is it dangerous to take half of a standard dosage? ## It may release too much of the medication, at once, since OxyContin is a time released formulation. What I'd suggest in this case is just not taking that pill. How did you accidentally cut the wrong one? ## Is there a non-nacotic prescription medication that I can take in place of Oxycontin for severe/chronic low back pain. I have just taken myself off Oxycontin because I felt it was doing more harm than good. I was taking 30mg twice a day. I have not taken any Oxycontin since last Thursday 8/16/12 and I'm a great deal of paid, in withdrawals including insomnia, vomiting, anxiety, confusion and general overall mallaise.

Questions about OxyContin 20mg & it's equavalentcy..
6 Replies RSS Share
Hi..I am currently taking OxyContin 20mg 3xdaily, Percocet, Zanaflex, Neurontin & Trazodone for the chronic pain that I've been suffering for for over 13 years. It's a debilitating illness (RSD/CRPS) and has only gotten worse over time. Now it effects every single part of my body. I can't increase the OxyContin because it is not avail in generic and I can't afford to continue to pay out $475 every mth for 90 pills so I need to find something that will help relieve the pain just as good as the OxyContin, if not better. Any opinions?!? (The OxyContin is the best pain med that has helped my pain & so thankful my pain management doctor suggested it...tho it bugs me that I can't increase it bc of the price) I am also quite nervous about stopping them because of wi...

How Long Does The Oxycontin 80mg op to work
22 Replies RSS Share
how long does it take a oxycontin 80mg op to start working after you swallow it ## About 15 to 20 minutes, though it can vary some depending on your own body, as well as if you've recently eaten. Learn more Oxycodone details here. It is a time released formulation, so it won't have as much of an immediate effect as the regular or instant release, though. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a Rx for OxyContin which is a month old. Can I still have it filled? ## Prescriptions are usually able to be filled for up to one year from the date it was issued. ## After an hour it's fully kicked in for me. ## I take those but I find chewing them makes them come on faster. Also it works better for me. ## I'm asking this for a friend of mine who takes 30s 3 times a day....

If People Can Sue For Bad Drugs Why Are We Not Changing The Way That We Make Them Work
6 Replies RSS Share
If people bring suits against bad drugs, why can we not bring a suite for turning a good drug that worked until they changed it to where it does not work half as well any longer and have alot of side effects. does this not make oxycontin a bad drug. this all happened due to people abusing it, ALL THOSE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DO IS FIND SOME OTHER DRUG TO ABUSE AND IN THE MEAN TIME MAKE HE NON-ABUSERS SUFFER FOR NO REASON. PLUS THEY WILL NOT EVEN GIVE OUT INFORMATION OF WHAT WE COULD CHANGE TO THAT WOULD TAKE THE PLACE OF THE OLD OXYCONTIN THAT WOULD WORK THE SAME.

What is equivalent to 30 mg oxycontin?
11 Replies RSS Share
Yesterday I picked up a 20 day supply of oxycontin 30 mg. It was a 20 day script. At 2 a day my px was for 60. I was HORRIFIED when the pharmacist billed me for 325.00, including my insurance discount. They claimed there is not a generic oxycontin. Oxycodone 30 mg was $15 for 60...so needless to say I was shocked!!! Is there an equivalent slow release to replace 30 mg of oxycontin? There has got to be something. I got into a bit of a habit with taking too many 30 oxycodone, which is why I was put on a slow release. Any advice out there? The pharmaceutical companies are gouging us beyond belief, and I've got a medical condition due to an accident where I need these pills, at least for another 2 months or so. The $325.00 price has me in a state of high anxiety however. Is hydromorphin...

oxycontin 40mg versus opana 30mg
2 Replies RSS Share
oxycontin 40mg versus opana 30mg, which one helps most? ## It really depends on the person and which one works better for them. The 30mgs of Opana, in this case, is the more potent of the two, if that's what you're asking. 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 there anything else I can help with? ## I know this is a very old post but i just had to say the Opana is no more but the generic(oxymorphone 30mg ER) is still available and BLOWS EVERYTHING out of the water by far including the oxycontin 80's n especially a 40mg oxycontin thats all
