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. It is said to be equal to my previo...

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. It will make the pill gel up if u try and abuse the pill... Hope that I helped out and answered your question ## Pink 02 20 round ...

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. I was cleaning out an old bag and found a couple in there. They are small and off white with just a triangle imprint. Never seen one before. But I heard its Oxy 40mg. Is that possible ## Did you find out what it was? I just got one and a...

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 ...

My OxyContin 20mg wears off before 12 hours

Has anyone else noticed that OxyContin 20mg wears off before 12 hours? I'm waiting for the extended relief pain meds to take effect and it doesn’t last for 12 hours. ## They’ve never lasted 12 hours since they were brought to market. That was how they flooded the streets. Doctors knew they didn’t last 12 hours so they would prescribe an extra here and there. Now I think they give people oxycodone for break through pain. ## They destroyed Oxycontin in 2009 with the rock hard polymer that was added to create the worthless OP version that works maybe 5 to 8 hours if you're lucky. Once the pill gets past the proton pumps in your stomach nothing will metabolize the pill any further... Prudue knew this, but no one cared how the pill worked just as long as drug addict...

Can Teeth Rot Because Of Oxycontin Use

ive been on these for about 7 years and was just asking coz my teeth are slowly getting worse also on oxynorm amitriptoline seratail co-codamol and have just started on fentanyl patches please help ## Your teeth can be affected by many medications, especially narcotics. The problem is caused due to the fact that they tend to sap the minerals from your body, plus they cause dry mouth, which allows more bacteria to sit on your teeth. From the medications you are taking, all of the narcotics, the Oxycontin, Co-Codamol, Oxynorm and the Fentanyl can cause a loss of calcium, as well as dry mouth. And the Amitryptiline can also cause dry mouth as a side effect. Many people on long-term narcotic pain management end up with severe dental issues and a lot have lost all their teeth and required de...

red and white capsule no markings need help??

I found a couple pills in my boyfriends cig pack he is a recoverying drug addict as id like to think. no markings half white Nd half dark red so not sure what it can be. ## Hello, Veronica! How are you? I'm sorry, but without any markings, it's going to be difficult to narrow down what these are, however, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. All prescription medications have to have markings, so these are most likely and over the counter medication of some type. Does anyone else recognize these? ## OxyContin and acetaminophen. Most likely 5 mg oxy and 500 aceta But can be higher dosage. ## I too have bought them. They are compounded dilaudid 8 mg ## I have a red and white capsule,it is support to be a 8 mg dilaudid?

Small round blue pill with NN on one side and 5 on the other

I'm trying to identify a small pale blue bi-convex pill with N|N on one side and 5 on the other side. My friend said that they are oxycontin but I believe it actually is oxybutynin. Anybody know for sure? It's from Canada and most likely a generic brand. ## Yes, there is an Oxybutynin from Canada that matches this description, it is a 5mg tablet, and is most commonly used to treat overactive bladder. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, and urinary retention. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Round small blue pill with 5 on one side and n|n on the other side . Was told it was an oxy cotin , might even be a repressed pill

unidentified pills found in a bottle of oxycontin

i had found some oxycontin leftover from my stepmother in-law's bout with cancer, and in a smaller bottle that was in with them. in this bottle i found a bunch of small white round pills, about 1/4 of an inch in diameter. on one side is the number 25, on the other is an uppercase I, slanted slightly. i don't know what these pills are but would love some imput! ## THAT IS NOT OXYCONTIN. A WHITE OXY IS SMALL ROUND ON ONE SIDE IS A OC, OTHER SIDE IS A 10 FOR MILLIGRAMS. PINK ONE, OC ON ONE SIDE, OTHER SIDE A 20, FOR 20 MILLIGRAMS. THEN THEY SKIP TO 40mg.ETC. ETC. THEY ARE MADE BY PURDUE PHARM. I CHECKED MY PDR BUT HAD NO LUCK FINDING YOUR PILL SO I CANNOT SAY. GOOD LUCK. ## And Sheri is incorrect, what she is talking about are just the name brand Oxy's, there have been generics...

Pain pill withdrawals after taking saboxon

I fell 25 feet and shattered my heal bone into 10 pieces had major foot surgery back in December 2016. Ortho put me OxyContin 30 for 2 weeks. The. He switched me to narco 10-325. I was taking 2 every 4 hours for almost 3 months. Then I had to see a pain doctor, which he gave me 120 a month for a little over 3 months. I was tired of taking them. So he put me on saboxon 8 mg strips. I tried taking a whole strip which made me very sick. So I cut them into 4 pices. He gave me 14 packs to start with I made them last about 3 weeks.

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...

pain management shreveport

Does anyone know of any primary care physicians in the Shreveport/Bossier City/Haughton/Minden area that do pain management? I have been going to a pain management doctor here in Shreveport for about 6 years now, but it is just getting to expensive. He refuses to to go any higher on my dosage of Oxycontin, which is 30 mg 3 times a day. And he will not give me anything for break through pain. I am on Medicaid so I have to pay him out of pocket. Medicaid pays for 60 of my oxy's, but I have to pay for the other 30. If I knew of a primary care physician that accepts does some pain management and also accepts medicaid it would be a really big help. I'd really appreciate anyone that could help me out and answer this. Thank you. ## There aren't any PCP's who do Pain Management ...

Oxycontin Reformulation op

These pills do not work for pain, the hospitals are not using it for pain control after surgery because people are screaming of no pain relief. Purdue Pharma did the change out slowly by zip codes so they could handle the complaints they take your info, they say they will pray for you they are sorry they had to do something to control the problem. It was approved under it's old license. Complain to the FDA about any problems associated with these drugs. The real oc's are still world wide because other countries don't allow their citizens to be cheated they make the manufacturer relicense. Canada is the way to go. Walmart Sannich road has a walmart pharmacy that carries the oxycontin in the original formula for 120 eighties it is 500.00 US. Good luck you will need a passport ...
