Oxycontin Detection Time
1 Reply RSS
I have ms and I've been taking at least ten oxycodone ER 30mg a day. Will this be out of my system by the 21st of September, aka next week? It sucks to have to take this but the dr only gives extended release and I needed rapid release. My body is giving up on me. Please someone that knows help, thank you!!! ## There is a good chance that they will be out of your system in 3-5 days. Although that is a fairly large amount hopefully if you drink plenty of water and stay as active as possible your system may be able to clear it. Just out of curiosity what extended release medication does your Dr have you on? I only ask because if it is OxyContin then you will be fine as they contain the same active ingredient. I'm sure you know that already but just thought I'd throw it out the...

Oxycontin damaged my teeth
757 Replies RSS
Has anyone else known oxycontin to rot the teeth? I used to be on vicodin until my doctor told me I needed to switch to a morphine based meds. She put me on ms contin but I had problems with it so she put me on 80mg oxycontin. Eventually my body built up a tolerance so she kept raising it, i have am now on from 4-6 per day of the 80mg tabs. It scares me that this is what rotted my teeth because only 5 yrs ago i had only 2 cavities that needed filling and then only 1 yr after going on the oxycontin i had to have all my top front teeth pulled as they where rotting from the inside out the dentist said my mouth looked like a heroin addict's mouth looks. He said it was shocking to him that normally he only saw such damage from someone who abused drugs with so much dental damage, but i ha...

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
211 Replies RSS
I have been in Pain management since 2004 in California and just Moved out there to muskogee Oklahoma... unfortunately there are NO doctors here willing to treat my pain i was on a regiment of 80mg Oxycontin 2X daily 10/325mg Norcos every 4 hours and 4mg IV dilaudid as needed for breakthrough pain... i am in search of a doctor out this way who is actualluy willing to perscribe these meds... thanks ## Well, the first question I have is, how are you checking with the doctors about getting help? The reason I am asking is because if you're calling various doctor's offices and asking if they'll treat you and prescribe specific medications, then you will pretty much always get told no. When someone does that, doctor's and their staff are taught to see it as drug seeking behavi...

Do You Know A Attorney That Would Take Case Due To Changing Medicine Use Work And Now It Does Not They Sue Places Over Drugs All The Time We Want For
6 Replies RSS
THE NEW OXYCONTIN DOES NOT WORK, IT IS MAKING PEOPLE SICKER THAN THEY WERE TO START WITH AND WE ARE BACK WHERE WE STARTED. I CAN NOT EVEN PLAY OR HOLD MY 6 GRANDCHILDREN. PEOPLE SUE OVER DRUGS, WE NEED AN ATTORNEY FOR THEM CHANGING A DRUG THAT DOES WORK. IF ANY ONE THINKS THAT ABUSERS ARE NOT GOING TO FIND AND ABUSE SOMETHING ELSE AND A LOT CHEAPER THEY WILL NOTHING IS GOING TO STOP THEM, BUT THERE IS NO REASON IN THE WORLD THAT THEY ARE OR HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE THE PEOPLE THAT DO NOT ABUSE THEM SUFFER ! AND NOW EVEN MORE DUE TO EXTRA SIDE EFFECTS. ## Getting an attorney to take such a case, especially since there is no real injury involved, because of the fact that there are other medication options that you can use, is going to be very difficult. In spite of Purdue's claims that ...

Laid off from job. No insurance. Been on OxyContin 60 for 4 years can't afford it now. What are the alternative medications?
25 Replies RSS
I was laid off from my job after 18 years!!! I have been taking OxyContin 60 for over 5 years now for chronic pain. I have applied to Purdue for their patient assistance program to receive free OxyContin. Dr. Has been in touch with them but it takes at least four weeks to receive the medication. She is presently looking up the alternative medications that I can take in between now and the delivery of my medication from Purdue. Can anyone help me with the alternatives? I'm a wreck and so worried that whatever I'm going to be given will not work as well as the OxyContin 60. ## You may want to talk to your doctor about trying the time released Morphine, the name brand is MS Contin, but it's also available as a generic. It isn't as potent as Oxycodone, so you'd need a hi...

HOWEVER ... the pills are a very very light green (almost white), the M is by itself in a box on one side, and the 15 is above a score mark on the other.

My dr in mont al has been prescribing me 3 80mg oxycontin for several years.My visit last wk he refilled my scrip and said it could be the last because he was told there was diversion possibly coming from his practice.Btw that was 3 a day. If he doesn't refill my scrip on my next visit. I need to find a DR quick. Is it legal not to wean a patient off? The pain clinics in this town are full. ## If he cannot continue to prescribe, he should be able to refer to another doctor or clinic that will accept his current patients. Has he suggested anyone? And yes, it is perfectly legal for a doctor to stop prescribing your medications, even if they are habit forming, at any time. They are not obligated to treat you or prescribe anything, unless you are in life threatening danger. As a courtes...

Oxycontin OP and OC what's the difference
210 Replies RSS
I've been taking the oxycontin oc for years now. I want to know what exactly is in the new oxycontin op? PLEASE HELP ## The new Oxycontin OP are replacing the original Oxycontin. They contain the same active ingredient Oxycodone, in a time released formulation. The only difference is that they have been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. Even if someone tries to crush or chew them, they retain their time released properties. Side effects are still the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Do you have any questions? ## Well I've been on this medicine for over 5 years now, and YES it has changed. I don't know how they are getting away with calling it the same thing? They are absolutely not, all in active ingredients have changed. Headaches, Nausea, Sto...

what is the difference between Oxycontin OC vs OP?
42 Replies RSS
Is this Newer version of Oxyconting OC vs OP the same, other that the obvious snorting, smoking etc..... ## Yes, it is supposed to be the same, time released Oxycodone, however there have been many complaints that it causes odd side effects and doesn't work as well. Side effects should be the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. If you have tried it, please post back with your experience. ## Makes me feel out of body. Not cool for me. I have been on this same med for over a year with great effectiveness and no side-effects. Now I have more pain, more headaches, and dizziness which I never had before. Thanks dope heads for causing a combat veteran to feel chronic pain again! ## I have been on oc for almost 6 years. 40 mg. and percocett for break through pain. Since they...

which is stronger oxycodone 5/325 or hydroc10/325
7 Replies RSS
have been prescribed both, but cant tell if one is stronger than the other ## 5mg oxycodone, according to the equivalence table I have in front of me, is equal to about 20mg hydrocodone. Therefore the combination drug containing oxycodone should be roughly twice as strong as the one containing hydrocodone. These drugs are only available in the UK in their pure form, not adulterated with paracetamol like yours. As I have written elsewhere, I really don't see the point of the combos. Unless you are suffering a fever, in which case paracetamol will ease the body temperature. But why take the non-narcotic unless you really need it? It is a very toxic and cumulative drug responsible for a lot of deaths. If I were you I'd ask for a prescription for 10mg hydrocodone without the apap. O...

Accidentally cut Oxycontin in half
8 Replies RSS
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.

Urine Test For Opiates

I take oxycontin 80 mg and roxicodone. I do not take as many a day as I am suppose to. Can a urine test tell how much i take? ## Yes, there are tests they can use that show the levels of it in your body, rather than just the presence of the medication. I have no way of knowing if that's what they use for you, but these types of tests do exist. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Do you know anything about the type of test they do? ## Molly Woodward.... YES!!! The detailed urinalisis /blood screen will test for the levels of ur meds in ur system.

I've been taking oxycontin 30mg with oc on them - this time i got oxycontin 30 with op on them and they seem to make me sick. What is the difference? ## Oxycontin OP is brand new to the market and is replacing the regular Oxycontin.

Otherwise, it works the same and has the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. I am not certain why it would be making you sick, as compared to the other ones, have you tried contacting your doctor or pharmacist about it? ## the new pill u are now getting is a new formula of the old oc and is supposed to be tamper proof so people cant abuse th...

Dilemma with 2 narcotic scripts from 2 doctors
229 Replies RSS
Hi all. I have intractable pelvic RSD, peripheral neuropathy, lumbar facet spondylosis. I live in California and am about to have to change insurances at the end of this month. The new insurance has ridiculously high Rx prices. I go to a PM for all my pain meds, but my primary dr has in the past managed them for me. My question is if anyone knows if I get an Rx for the 60mg Oxycontin twice a day like usual from my PM and then my primary to write a script for 40mg 3 times a day and then I can go to 2 totally different pharmacies and fill one with my insurance and the other at another pharmacy and pay with cash, will that flag the DEA and cause my PM to get a notification of "Doctor shopping"?

Oxycontin Vs Roxicodone
1 Reply RSS
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...
