I Just Need Someone To Help Me Find A Doctor In Ky That Will Write The Oxy 30s And Xanax Something For Breakthrough Pain Whatever Else Do

Just want to find a doctor in KY that will write something preferably the oxycodone 30 for pain and 15's for breakthru, plus I've been taking xanax for around 5 years to try and help with the pain and anxiety which they do to a certain point. But I say the oxycodone because I went to a pain clinic in GA 3 months ago and they wrote them for me and I thought I was in heaven as far as the pain was concerned but due to the pain I can't make those trips.!!! Someone PLEASE HELP!!!! ## I have been having anxiety attacks and the thing that helped was xanax ## @Micheal, I may not have a doctor I can refer you to, but I can provide you with a couple links that may be of service to you in so far as locating pain management doctors within your general area. All you have to do is input y...

Did they replace all the original oxycontin with this new crush resistant formula?

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...

Accidentally cut Oxycontin in half

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.

Fill prescriptions from 2 different doctors and doses of OxyContin?

Can you get a prescription from 2 different doctors that prescribe different mg dosage of Oxycontin and have insurance cover it? ## You may get away with it for awhile..But trust me it will catch up with you eventually. Now if you use different RX insurance companies or pay cash for one....then it may be a little harder for the insurance companies to track. But however in Michigan I know for a fact and see it every time I get my Rx filled at the doctors that they have a computerized DEA print out sheet of the pharmacies that you get your pills from the time date quantity etc. Now if these doctors have made you sign a opiate contract with them NOT to use any other physicians for opiates other than himself or there office and only use one pharmacy .... And you choose to void that opiate c...

how long does the oxycontin take to work

I've been taking op 30s for just a couple days but I'm not sure how long they take to start working can someone plz tell me ## Hello, Alize! How are you? It should have some effect shortly after taking it, though it may take a month to reach its full efficacy level in your body, but it is an analgesic. Has it been helping your pain, at all? You may need a dosage adjustment, if it's not helping. 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. ## This is crazy, its supposed to be immediate relief. It shouldnt have to build up to a certain level in your body.

will suboxone help me although being a long time addict?

I have been on oxycontin... in the past but have moved to opana. The withdrawls are unbelievable! Ive been on the opana for approximately 6years...frankly im sick n tired of being sick n tired. Its ruined my life, as well as loosing my children. I want help but being broke and no insurance..I feel im stuck between a rock n a hard place... can anyone recommend any help? It would be greatly appreciated. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? I'm very sorry about what you're going through, but kudos for realizing that you need help. Since you have no insurance and are short money, I'd actually suggest looking into your local Methadone clinics. They get funding to help people like you and are generally much cheaper than Suboxone, which has to be prescribed by a private doctor. And, as thi...

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma

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...

pics of oxy contin 40mg

gg235 ## If the pill is pink and really says GG 235 then it IS NOT oxycontin, rather it is generic promethazine 50mg, generic for Phenergan. It is an antihistamine typically used to control moderate to severe nausea among other things. Side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, headache, among other side effects. ## Also, there are several generic forms of oxycontin 40mg now so it would be hard to pull up each picture. I can tell you that each company is trying to keep the same color as the original, kind of a yellow color. Hope this helps. ## A round pink tablet with GG over 235 on one side is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, and they list it as containing 50mgs of Promethazine, which is most commonly used to help treat, or prevent, nausea, and vomiting.

oxycontin ox 20 pill

Light pink round pill with ox 20 on one side. Real or fake. Search brings nothin up ## They look really besides the ox instead of op or oc ## Did you try it yet? If so how was it?? ## @James, Personally, I wouldn't trust this pill if you didn't go through your doctor and a licensed pharmacy to obtain it. As from what I can tell, no one else on this site has come across anything like it in other related threads. The OX 20 imprint just seems like a fake in my opinion, based on NIH.gov depictions of how 20mg Oxycontin should look if it was actually a legitimate Oxycontin pill. Real 20mg Oxycontin's by Purdue Pharmaceuticals are, like you said, marked with OC 20 or OP 20. Have you considered getting the pill analyzed by a lab just to be on the safe side? ## There from diff count...

Laid off from job. No insurance. Been on OxyContin 60 for 4 years can't afford it now. What are the alternative medications?

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...

oxycontin formulary new insurance

oxcodone IR 30mg to replace oxycontin CR 40mg no insurance on oxycontin ## Hello, Freefall! How are you? Your doctor should be able to prescribe the regular release Oxycodone for you, in lieu of the Oxycontin. However, you should be aware that there is no immediate release in these higher dosages, it is only available as a capsule in 5mgs. The FDA lists this medication as being 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. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? If the 40mg twice a day has been controlling your pain, they'll likely want to try to keep you as close to that dosage as possibly. ## The new oxycontin may not work for you, but I have been put on xtampz...

Insurance company refusing to pay for oxycontin

insurance company now won't pay for chronic pain meds. (oxycontin) noting all kinds of reasons which I answered. It started with pre authorization, then reduced dosage, (have had same dosage for four years). I have never misused or tried to get meds. early. I know this is an abused medication but I have to go to work every day and this allows me to do so. They say I have a right to appeal and have looked for legal help but nobody will take case. Any help would be appreciated. I can't afford $900.00 per month. ## Hello, Josh! How are you? I am sorry about the problems you're having, that's horrible. As to the legal help, when the insurance company says you have the right to appeal, that is an internal process that you handle with them, they will tell you what information ...

xtampza 13.5 not working

Is it just me and the pain I'm in or does anyone else feel like the Xtampza just isn't cutting it ! I started on 9mg every 12 hours two months ago. I at one point even filled out a DEA report and returned the medication to my doctor's office ( after spending a lot of money on it) To only have to go without it because my insurance insists it's same as others and wouldn't let me fill another type. Anyway, was put back on it, in this type of pain, I'll try try try. Now I'm getting it twice a day 13.5 mg ( equivalent to a 15mg) ...It gives me a headache and spaces me out and I can honestly say does not last 12 hours as it claims to. You can literally ( physically) feel it wear off within 8 hours and is crappy ! It is not , does not control my pain... Maybe it...

Xtampza what a joke

I also have been switched to Xtampza from OxyContin 2 weeks ago. Sorry, Xtampza no where near comes close to relieving my pain. I am now back in my bed or chair for most of the day, very depressed. My Doctors have noticed a complete difference in my look, affect, body, mood. Not just my pain Dr but my primary and my Therapist. I hope all of the polititions, DEA! CDC and happy. The only cure for my pain is 6 feet under ground.......good luck all ## What dose was prescribed for you? They both contain the same active ingredient, in a time released formulation, which is Oxycodone. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. ## 36mg.

Round Pink Pill 02 on one side and A on the other

Is it true that my prescription for oxycontin 20mg can be round pink with 02 on one side and A on the other, or did they give me the wrong medication? ## No, a round, pink tablet with an A on one side and 02 on the other is listed as being a 20mg Simvastatin tablet, it's used to help lower cholesterol. Learn more Simvastatin details here. I couldn't find any listings for any Oxycodone tablets with that marking and meeting that description. Have you double checked with the dispensing pharmacy? ## yes and no its not an oc its an op........ which they are for the most part the same thing except that an op has a additive that wont let the pill be abused.

small round light yellow pill blank on one side and a triangle on the other

What is this pill? It came from the Dominican republic and I'm told its an OC 40mg ## It's not any Oxycontin/Oxycodone that I'm familiar with. Can you provide a better description of the triangle? Is it just an outline, or a full triangle? Learn more Oxycodone details here. ## Its an imprint. Its from the Dominican republic so I don't think you'd be familiar with it if you're only familiar with American pills. ## Yes its real oxycodone 40 milligrams ... it has a triangle on one side ## Hey Jason how do you know what that pill is.

doctors who will prescribe pain medication kansas

I too am a chronic pain sufferer, I was in a bad car accident several years ago, all my limbs were broken at once and they used my hip to rebuild one of my feet. I have a GP that has been helping me but now feels she has been letting me use too many narcotics and has abrubtly cut me off. I'm interested in controlling the pain not using the pills but it feels like nobody really cares. Is there any doctors in the Kansas City area who believe in pain management with narcotics. I believe that if you don't understand the pain of the indivdual it's hard to understand why we ask these questions. I don't want to shop for a docotor that's not what I do but what are we suppose to do if they won't help us. ## Hello, JJ! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problem t...

OxyContin for Methadone Withdrawal

I take 100mgs of methadone every day for the past 12 years. I ran out of methadone and can't go to my Dr for 2 days. Will OxyContin 20mg help with the methadone withdrawal? If anyone knows please let me know. ## Hello John. No it will not. I have been on methadone for over 30 years, been there done that. You say you have 2 more days to go to see your Dr. Well, as you know, methadone is a long acting medication. You would be fine the first day, especially taking 100mgs. Without it, you might not feel your best, but won't withdraw. But the second day you may start to get sick. You could try to take it for the second day. Everyone is different. It may take the edge off of feeling sick and your pain, but does your Dr do drug urinalysis? Because if he does and you take the oxycontin ...
