What is the difference between hydrocodone and oxycontin???

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...

What is the best replacement for oxycontin. High dose long time user for chronic pain. It seems like nothing else works as well.

I was on the Oxycontin 80mg 3x a day for 16 yrs. I have been tried on alot of other things . I went on methadone w/ 2 40mg of oxy then they quit making the methadone that iI took. None of the kadian or other things in that class have worked. I am now taking ms contin 100mg. a day w/15 mg. 2x a day it is not enough and my Dr. who gave me a hard time off and on about the oxy's now refuses to do the irs that are still available with any other meds. I've took the opana and at the time it seemed fine but pricey that has been a couple of years ago just to see. They have a cap I did not take the er's though. My Dr. is funny about writing large numbers of meds. This ms contin could work but he will not for instance give 60 more mgs. He would rater write 200mgs.3x a day because of am...

Is there a Rep.for the ppl. Who were controlled on 3 OxyContin OC A DAY ,who now suffer,and have Proved the new OP s DON'T WORK ? NO MATTER WHAT PERDUE 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. Till they changed to OP, then they stopped working.So...

Pain Doctors Alabama

My dr in Mont., AL has been prescribing me 3 80mg oxycontin for several years. My visit last week he refilled my script 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 script 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 ...

It seems like you're mistaking the pill being described here, because there are Oxycodone 15mgs which also have M 15 as the imprint ... 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.

Considering withdrawal because of difficulty getting medications

I am a RSD patient that felt fortunate I only took 3 1/2 years to be diagnosed. For the last 8 years , in East Tn,I have been taking oxycontin and oxycodone, now some new law is passed and I can no longer get my Rx from my pain Dr, because they don't have the license required to be able to write Rx as large as my past (which I have become very use to & are working less than in pass) so I am sent to a clinic with this license. All if a sudden I am being treated like a hard core criminal trying to scam them, with my current MRI's and nerve diagnostics! I was photographed and then filmed after the ua stating my name and date of birth as I put urine in bag to be sent off to San Diego for a 16 panel analysis that cost $1,137, for the ua! The P.A. who I was assigned to, I couldn...

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.

Oxycontin And Oxycodone Urine Drug Test

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...

oxycontin and oxycodone in a urine drug test

I understand that oxycotin is the brand name of time released oxycodone but need to know if anyone has actually taken a urine test after taking oxycotin but are being prescribed the 30 mg blues. I got tested but had suboxone, subutex, ops, and 30s in my system, I had been going to that doc for years and had no clue he started testing. It was the type that gave immediate results and when he went over the results I was still in such shock that I can't remember the breakdown but it did have a +/- for suboxone and I'm worried that there was one for oxycotin. I'm 3 days short of the 30s before my visit so I want to be sure I can take oxycotin so I don't get sick and pass the test if I have to take one??? ## Billy727 how did your result come up? I am going through a very simil...

oxycontin op 30 mg

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. The only difference is that the Oxycontin OP has been specially formulated to help prevent abuse. Even if someone tries to crush or chew it, it will retain its time released properties. 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...

PURDUE CLASS ACTION lawsuit

STILL LOOKING FOR ANY NEWS ON WETHER OR NOT THEY'RE WILL BE A LAWSUIT AGAINST PURDUE AND ITS NEW FORMULATION OF OXYCONTIN AND HOW ITS ROTTING PATIENTS TEETH. ## As a point of awareness, the original "OC" version of OxyContin can cause tooth damage. Actually, ANY narcotic can damage the teeth. Heroin, morphine, oxycodone, codeine, hydrocodone - makes no difference. Time release, instant release, injection, suppository - delivery method isn't important either. Any opiate or opioid can cause dry mouth - which can damage teeth. Another often overlooked factor is that these drugs cause sedation and drowsiness: not unusual for someone to take their dose and fall asleep without brushing or flossing teeth. ## I would like to find out if there is any class action lawsuits involvi...

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...

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...
