I've been taking (4) 80 mg of oxycotin for over 10 years. My insurance changed rules and put me at 50% payment which is $900. I can't afford that. So the Docter wrote a 10 day supply of name brand oxycodone and the payment would have been $300. The pharmacist filled it with generic oxycodone (manufacturer QLT)Which only cost me $12 with my insurance. The problem is Besides being in pain managemt for spinal cord injury, hx of 5 neck surgeries , I have celiac disease with an intolerance to gluten and soy. Years ago I was prescribed oxycodone(manufacturer activas) and I was a mess. Does anyone know if oxycodone (manufacturer QLT) contains gluten or soy. And how I will do replacing the oxycotins (4) 80 mgs per day with the oxycodones (1-2) 30 mgs every 4 hours as needed (max 10 per day). The insurance made their change with no warning. I used to only pay $97 at the most sometimes only $57 depending on the tier they put me in. If this new rx contains gluten or soy I will be screwed. The pharmacist could not guarantee it

Hello, Bella! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having.

Which is it that you're allergic to? Gluten/Soy, Lactose or all 3?

Are the tablets you're asking about round and blue with the marking 4812 V on them?

If so, as per Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, the inactive ingredients are listed as including:

Lactose monohydrate
Magnesium stearate
Microcrystalline cellulose
povidone
sodium starch glycolate type a potato
stearic acid and
FD&C Blue No. 1

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.

Thus, no gluten or soy.

But, if you're allergic to lactose, or lactose intolerant, that could be what's causing your symptoms.
