Why did they change Oxycontin?

I have been taking oxycontin for years for chronic back pain. Now I can't get any relief from pain because of the change. Is there any thing else I can take to stop the pain? I can't stand the pain and the new ones give me a headache. Like I need more pain. Come on and get real. Don't punish the people that need it. ## I have had neck SX and also have several issues w/ back and SX is not an option. I want to know why the receipe for the OxyContin was changed. It doesn't work anymore since the change--what else (OTHER meds and WHY the change. If it ain't broke-don't fix it. Is the/formula same for generic? Seems like the 40 OC took 20-30-minutes to kick in--now it's over an hour and doesn't last very long but I have been on then for a few years. Anyody got...

Massachusetts Attorney General targets OxyContin maker, says they engineered opioid crisis

The Massachusetts attorney general is targeting Purdue Pharma and eight members of the Sackler family who own the company, alleging in a lawsuit they are "personally responsible" for deceptively selling OxyContin. The attorney general, Maura Healey, sat down with CBS This Morning. She alleges the Sackler family hired "hundreds of workers to carry out their wishes" – pushing doctors to get "more patients on opioids, at higher doses, for longer, than ever before" all while paying "themselves billions of dollars." In her lawsuit, Healey names eight members of the family that own Purdue Pharma, alleging they "micromanaged" a "deceptive sales campaign." In the conclusion to the complaint, Healey said the Sackler family used the power at t...

Need doctor who will prescribe methodone for chronic severe pain.

I have a rare kind of polyneuropathy that affects my long nerves. I have had severe chronic pain for over 8 years. My pain doctor in Florida switched me from oxycontin to methadone because the oxycodone made it difficult to sleep. I recently moved to Mass. and so far the two doctors I've been to eliminated my breakthrough meds (oxycodone 30 mg. 4 times a day) and decreased my methadone from 140 mg a day (taken evenly in 10 mg a day) to 70 mg a day (10 mg. tabs throughout the day) and I am back to excruciating pain. I cannot work, eat a healthy diet, sleep, take care of my family, etc. Why don't any of these doctors realize that although there are risks related to taking opiates, that QUALITY of life is what is important to me? Do you know of any doctors in Mass. (Lowell area) th...

Are They Making Oxycontin Oc Again

was getting 0xy 80s oc on one side of green pill 80 on the other now its op/80 i hear they are once again making OC/80 is this true or false ## It is false, so far Purdue has announced no plans to switch back and start manufacturing the original formula, again. It was still available, in some areas, where larger pharmacy chains and/or hospitals had laid in a large supply of it, but once they exhausted their supply, they were also forced to switch to the new formulation with the OP marking. Are you also having a problem with the new product? ## I believe they are, I just had given up on the op 80s an felt that the crushable oc 80s would never return but today I came across a pill with E 710 on one side and a 80 on the other. I looked it up and it was oxy cotin 80mg I had just got in the ...

oxycontin 80 mg op are they the same

I recieved oycontin 80 mg but instead of oc on the side it has op? Any information would help. ## This is the new version of Oxycontin, called Oxycontin OP, it has been specially designed to help prevent abuse and diversion. If someone tries to crush them to abuse the medication, it will not make a difference, they still retain their time released formulation. It still works the same as the original and carries the same risk of side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation.

Is There A Representative For All Chronic Pain Patients

Is there a rep. for the ppl. who were controlled on 3 OxyContin OC a day, who now suffer and have proved the new OPs DON'T WORK? NO MATTER WHAT PURDUE OR FDA SAY? We need a rep. for us chronic pain patients, who were controlled and NOW SUFFER & CAN'T DO MORE THAN LAY IN BED CRYING. ## Unfortnately, other than reporting your complaints to the FDA, there isn't much else you can do. I'm sorry you are having such a frustrating experience with it. Have you tried to talk to your doctor about using any alternative medications, such as Fentanyl, or the time released Morphine? ## I've been on fentanyl for 15 yrs until they changed patch, it didn't help that's why my dr.put me on OxyContin and that lasted 5 mo.

I have been on 10mg oxycontin hcl for several years (for Stiff person syndrome & migraine). I take 4 or 5 per day. I Just got my prescription filled yesterday and notice that started having chills real bad. Has anyone else had this problem before? ## It sounds like withdrawal symptoms to me? Not sure about what you can do? I would first go talk too the pharmacy and your doctor if needed. What was the name of the manufacturer of these pills? ## I'm not sure. The only thing I seen on bottle is Roxydone. I always get them filled at cvs. ## Somewhere on the bottle it should say something underneath Roxycodone... Like Purde or some other name. It is important info to know in case there is a problem with that manufacturer. Good luck...I was on heavy doses for over 3 years and it was t...

I was just perscribed a bottle of 60 and unless Oxybutynin is oxycontin also, you are wrong. ## 4853V is 5mgs of Oxybutynin, a generic for Ditropan, used to help control urinary frequency and incontinence. ## 4853 with a cursive v on the bottom is a 30mg oxy.

Mail order for pain meds Fla.

Like everyone else I am having a hard time finding a pharmacy that will fill my pain medication, I live in Brandon near Tampa Fla. My Dr. will only give me certain meds because he is aware of the problems getting some meds filled. When I went to the pharmacy I asked him and he said the same thing, I then said I guess I could do a mail order for the meds the pharmacy won't fill and the pharmacist told me that it is illegal to get narcotic pain meds mailed in Florida. I just had a script filled by mail in March, does anyone know if they changed that law? I know a lot of new regulations went into effect April 1st. Like Dr. cannot up your dose or quanity of certain meds after 4/1, many other state and federal changed too that don't apply to pain meds but I am just concerned about ha...

If this is the pill that you found just let me know and I'll provide you with some additional information if you want.

Is dilaudid stronger than oxycontin? Norco?

I am wondering if dilaudid is stronger than oxycontin? morphine? norco? norco 10/325? liquid 40ml norco 2.5mg/5ml? ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone. That said, it is a potent narcotic, and what it is stronger than depends on the dosage of each. It is not stronger than most dosages of Oxycodone, but is stronger than some. Oxycodone is the strongest product on the market approved to treat pain. Whether it is stronger than the others also depends on what dose of the Dilaudid you're asking about. Was this prescribed for you? You can read more about it here: ## Actually, Opana (oxymorphone) is about 2 to 3 times stronger than oxycodone, or contin. I went from a oxy 30mg ER to an Opana 10mg and have had the best results as far as pain relief. ## can you list the le...

green pill

i need help understanding what this pill is i was told it was an oxycoton it is a capsule light green with no markings could someone tell me what t is please i have been looking for hours. ## i have to agree, That is not an oxycontin Under any circumstances you must find out what it is b4 you do antyhing with it good luck ## Kristan is correct. Prescription drugs in the U.S. must ALL have imprints on them to enable them to be identified according to manufacturer, drug, and the dosage. If you have a pill with no markings it would have to be an over the counter medication. ## watson 509 lorcets are light green t ## I got the same pill.

Oxicotton

This is a prescription pain drug. ## The correct spelling is OxyContin. ## My cousin was prescribed this drug for a minor back problem and got addicted. He tried to stop tons of times. He died last summer of mixing the drug they gave him to help him quit with this drug. I warn anyone out there, please do not take this drug no matter how much pain you are in! ## Actually, when used properly under a doctor's supervision this is a very good drug to handle chronic pain conditions. It helps many people who have exhausted other treatment options. I am very sorry to hear about your cousins death, a true tragedy and one of many that have happened due to misuse of this drug. Oxycontin should NEVER be prescribed for someone who only needs short term pain relief for a minor problem. It should ...

OxyContin 40mg controlled rel tabs substitute

My insurance no longer covers Oxycotin 40mg ER. I was taking it 2 x a day and also taking Oxycodone 30mg 3 x a day due to my injury. I will like to know what will be a good substitute for Oxycotin 40mg ER. Thanks a lot. ## Hello, Matraquita! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you've run into. There are several other options available, including MS Contin and Opana ER, both are time released and are available as generics. 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. However, only your doctor can decide what would be right for you to try. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Sorry to be so negative but anytime release...

Substitute For oxycontin 40mg daily

I am facing major surgery in four weeks time and I am fearful that the same will happen as in a similar operation last year. Cold turkey during recovery and no one would listen. I want to die. If they give me more morphine. Would that work. ## Yes, it could work, but only if they give you an equivalent dosage. Oxycodone is stronger than Morphine, so you would require a higher amount of the Morphine to equal what you currently take. Thus, if you are on 40mgs of Oxycodone, to prevent withdrawals and handle your pain accordingly, you'd need 60mgs of the Morphine. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It helps a lot as I dreaded that the same experience might again. I will ask for a plan that must include the correct dosage of morphine e.g. 60mg. Are you speaking from personal expe...

Can I cut an oxycontin op?

Can anyone help me understand these OPs? The whole pill is plastic, right? I mean, unlike MS Contins where the coating is time released. So my question is-If the whole thing is a solid time release pill, why can’t I cut it in half? I am not trying to abuse it. My doctor made me switch from 5mg instant relase oxycodone to 10 mg oxycontin and it’s way too strong. It makes me feel sick and way too medicated to drive. I am taking these so I can have a life, not another car accident. So I would like to reduce the dose but it says not to cut them & I am not sure that is applicable to the plastic pills. ## According to medical literature, "extended/time-release" pills are not intended to be cut in half because it can release the full contents of the pill all at once (ri...
