Florida pain pill shortage

For all who live in Florida you are aware of the terrible problem of filling narcotic pain medication prescriptions. I am not connected with this petition but want you to be aware of it and I am providing a link to this petition so hopefully pharmacies will be forced to carry adequate supply of medication for refills. I moved to Florida to retire from Missouri. I am sorry I made this choice as I must go sometime weeks waiting on a pharmacy any of them to have quantity to fill my script. As you know 9 out of 10 times the pharmacies never have any on hand. Then we are forced to drive (not able to call) to pharmacy to other pharmacy to see if they can fill it. The law in Florida is so strict you cannot leave your prescription at the pharmacy to be filled, nor can you be provided by phone i...

Oxycodone/Percocet generics! Which are most effective?

Hello, First, let me start by saying that I am somewhat opiate naive. I am not in pain management and hopefully won't need to be. I've had scripts here and there for norco and percocet. It is the generic percocet, or more specifically the oxycodone, i'd like to discuss here. Over the past year i've had issues (such as a broken elbow, recurring kidney stones, and a staghorn lodged in my renal pelvis [kidney]), that have lead to several prescriptions for percocet from a total of 4 different manufacturers. Mallinckrodt 10/325, Amneal 7/325, Rhodes Pharmacy 10/325, and AuroBindo 10/325. I've read a lot of reviews about the aforementioned generic manufacturers. The majority of them have been negative especially for Rhodes. Mallinckrodt and AuroBindo are the only two that ...

Generic 10mg oxycodone IR KVK brand. Any info about known quality of this med compared to other generics?

I have seen so many different opinions and information about companies offering generic oxycodone and the differences in strength, and quality over other generic brands. I have also heard that the FDA allows from 12% to 20% variances in the active ingredient (oxycodone) in their pills. Which if i am understanding this correctly, they can be + or - 12 to 20% of the actual amount of oxycodone per tablet? Can someone with the expertise or knowledge (like a pharmacist or a doctor) explain this to us who have heard this and don't understand? I personally suffer with chronic pain from a construction accident 20 yrs ago in which my back was broken in 7 places along with a lot of muscle and nerve damage which has left me on disability and in chronic pain after 4 surgeries and 7 levels of my...

Looking for dr in knoxville tn that prescribes pain meds

In 2012 I had a spinal fusion that didn't go well. I'm partially paralyzed on my left side. I've been going to a pain management clinic & they've had me on oxycodone 10mg 4 times a day & OxyContin 10mg 3 times a day. I've never had a pill count that was off & always passed the UA. Suddenly in November I'm 8 short on my OxyContin & my results come back with hydro in my system. We were renting a room to a young woman & she moved to Texas in November btw did you ever notice how much a 10mg white hydro looks like oxycodone? Obviously I got kicked out of the program. I'm in constant pain & they told me to ween myself off the meds. Even if I could ween myself off of meds in a month that I've been on for 3 years, I'm still in pain. Af...

mylan oxycodone

Are they as effective as activas? ## I just got these for the first time and wish I had known prior to walking out of the pharmacy. I've been taking 30mg oxycodone for almost 6 years and normally take the Qualitest, but after calling around to 12 pharmacy's the only place that had them was Costco. I just assumed that every place carried the little blue pills and to be honest had no idea that these even exsisted, but I also assumed as long as it had 30mg of oxycodone, that I would be ok. I couldnt have been more wrong. These Mylan pills have ZERO effect on my pain and if I didnt know any better I would of thought that all I was really taking was sugar pills. Not only do they not have any pain relieving effect to them, but I cant see a damn thing because they cause my eye sight to...

Pain doctors willing to prescribe anxiety meds AND opioids?

Hello!!! This is a question for my mother, not me. She doesn't know how to use 'Net. She is in her late 40's and has horrible anxiety, and chronic pain [endo, back problems, cervix problems, fibroid, currently has sprained/bruised rib, and her uterus is backwards from giving birth to me, good job, me!] She was on oxycodone 7.5 but she lost one of her pain specialists because they accused her of "stealing" a bottle of oxys that were supposed to be for her upcoming surgery [hysterectomy] but we had problems w/insurance. They wouldn't cover the surgery but she had already filled the pills, so they said she stole them even though she said she'd give them back, but they said no, you shouldn't have filled them in the first place. So she got kicked out. Anyways,...

Low dose Oxycodone and hair drug test

I have taken a total of (2) 5MG Oxycodone in the past 90 days. I recently had to get a hair follicle test done (with expanded opiates). One Oxycodone was taken about 90 days before, and the other exactly 7 days before my hair test. I am looking to see if anyone has any experience with passing / failing the hair test at these low dosages? I am not sure what the cutoff levels are, but I think it 100 PG/MG. I haven't slept in 3 days I am so nervous. Thanks for any replies. ## I had a similar issue last year and passed. However, I think the cutoff was 200 pg/mg. I heard that new tests look at 100 pg/mg, or even lower - like any trace at all. Good luck ## I know someone is a very similar circumstance. Did it show up in your test?

hair follicle drug test and oxycodone

I am prescribed oxycodone 10mg taken 4 times daily. I take them as directed. I recently took a 5 panel hair follicle test and it came back negative on everything. Does anyone know a reason that this would not show up on a hair test? I did not have my hair colored or bleached in over two years and I did not take anything to try to alter the results. Thanks! ## The reason oxy didn't show up in a Hair 5 Drug Panel test is that it is not tested for in that panel. In order for it to show up on a hair test you would need to take a test with the Extended Opiates which are the pain killers like oxy. ## So percocet wouldn't show up as an opiate? The people that administered the test said it should of shown up and they didn't know why it didn't. ## In a normal Hair 5 Drug Panel te...

Finding pain doctor in pittsburgh pa

I need 2 find a pain doctor that will write opiates. ## need a pain doc in pittsburgh pa help ## Have u found what u r looking for? If so, that's what i am looking for too. I work and cant be falling out on the job. And the opiates help get the pain away. ## This may be difficult in the Pittsburgh area, most of the doctors I am aware of, from when I lived near there, preferred other forms of treatment and didn't provide pain management with opiate medications. I can provide the contact information for some that are listed in the Pittsburgh area, so you can call and see what types of treatments they provide.

Amneal oxycodone (generic percocet) 10 325

Amneal's oxycodone, generic for percocet 10/325 is white, oblong, blank on one side, and imprinted with IP 204 (not IP 203)! I usually take Watson or Mallinckrodt, 10/325, (2) tablets every 4-6 hours (240 monthly), but I was given Amneal today when filling my script, and I am not happy! I have cancer, and I also take morphine sulphate 30 mgs as well (1 every 12 hours), and Fioricet with Codeine for severe migraines (as needed)! I do not feel Amneal is sufficient or even close to the chemical makeup as Watson or Mallinckrodt for controlling pain/chronic pain! Amneal does not act the same way on my body, and I should not have to take more for same result! I think when you pay cash for your medications, and have been on the medication for 8 years, using the same pharmacy, they should o...

Zydus 10mg Oxycodone Underdosed?

Hello all. For the last 6 months, i've been prescribed various meds/treatments/pain meds for severe head pressure and neck pain. I had to stop taking any form of Hydrocodone because it makes my skin breakout in open sores (gross, i know). On May 6th, my PCP prescribed me Oxycodone 10mg 4times daily with great results and it made me very fuctional. He gave me another script for the same medication and when i went to the pharmacy, they filled it and when i got home, i notices the tablets/drug company was different. Well, was i in for a suprise. The new generics my pharmacy had were made by Zydus Pharmaceuticals and are imported from India? Well, to say the least, i've been taking almost twice my dosage to get the same effect. There's no way on earth that my tolerance doubled i...

Trouble in FL finding Good physiatrist or pain management

I have had both hips replaced at 48 and have herniated discs in lower back from limping and overcompensation. First in 2013 and most recent in late March 2018. In CT, where I had my first full hip done my doctor’s approach was to stay ahead of the pain and I was able to function very well. I waited so long to have it done (eight years since I was diagnosed) I had severe atrophe, spasms and tendon damage that I had to remain on somewhat heavy doses to supress pain in order to perform my job. I moved down to Florida in 2016 thinking that with my records from the three years prior of compliant medication regime that I would remain on the medications and dosage I was on. Well this is not the case and since she thousand 16 I have been struggling with management doctor that has cut me by m

A 51 30mg oxycodone (Amneal) - turns yellow/green when wet

I have some A 51 30 mg oxycodones and noticed that they turn a yellow/green when damp. I know one of the inactive ingredients is D&C yellow #10 so that may be the cause, but I wanted to check to see if anyone else has noticed the same thing and make sure that it is normal. Thanks for any help in advance. ## I spilled a little water on 1 of my A 51's and it changed color too. Is there a reason this happens? ## Hello, Mike and Jen! How are you both? Moisture can affect the shade, color and tone of virtually anything, including pills. Depending on the specific type of water, you may see different colors at different times, due to small chemical reactions. For instance, you may see a different color from tap water, than from purified water, since there are chemicals in the tap water...

yellow round pill with no imprint - oxycodone?

I have a round, yellow pill that has NO imprints on it other than the score to break in half. It's a brighter yellow color. I need help identifying this so I can be safe! ## If there are no imprints, then it is not a legal U.S. prescription tablet. The FDA requires them all to have unique imprints to enable their identification, in case of emergency. Thus, if there are no markings on the tablet, it is most likely some type of over the counter product. Although, there is also a chance that it could be a foreign pill. Where did you obtain this tablet? ## Sounds like an aspirin , ones you take everyday for heart Heath 72 or 82 mg

white oxycodone rp 30 filler?

Can anyone please tell me if the oxycodone Hcl with the imprint rp30 have tylenol in it or tell me what is the filler in this specific pill. Can't find many things on this kind and they just switched me to these and they seem to be a little different didn't know if it was because of the filler since they are so much bigger than my normal ones. Anything helps so thanks in advance! ## Hello, Jenny! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Rhodes Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 30mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation. So no, it doesn't contain any Tylenol/Acetaminophen. However, I've been unable to find a listing of the inactive ingredients, but your pharmacy should have that information available. But the inactive usually do explain a size dif...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado

I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

how is aleria dispensed

I heard of a drug called aleria on TV and want to know if it's pills of inj's. or? How's it dispensed? What's it prescribed for or is it an in-clinic or hospital medication? ## Me too! Nurse Jackie wtf is it? Having trouble finding out. ANYWHERE!!!! ## There's actually a youtube video that was published on January 6th, 2015 promoting a prescription-based anti-aging skin cream by the name of "Alaria RX". They advertise it towards treating skim damage, wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, promoting skin rejuvenation, and as a powerful antioxidant. However, Vitamin C appears to be its main driving force behind these claims... Other topics relating to the name "Aleria or Alaria" don't seem to yield any relevant search engine results pertaining to a spec...

difference between aurolife pharma llc u15 and mallinckrodt inc 512

Pharmacy recently changed my generic 5 mg / 325 pills. The original capsule-shaped, white, U15 imprint (Aurolife pharma llc - pill search result) to a round, white, 512 imprint (Mallinckrodt inc - also pill search result). The "new" pill also has "APAP" on the label; I can't say for certain the original (U15) had that designation, though it may have. The "new" pill makes me feel "differently", and not in a good way. Before I speak with my pharmacist, I wanted to understand why or how they might cause this difference. ## Both of the tablets you've mentioned contain 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so they are the same. APAP is just medical speak for Acetaminophen, so that's not anything different or new. This is a narcotic analges...
