I was researching info on this site in order to have my doctor switch my meds when I see her tomorrow - Wed. I ran across a link that was to a site that would calculate the dosage needed to replace one drug with another. Does anyone have this info and any other info on changing my oxycontin and oxycodone tomorrow. This doctor is a real b...tch and has not increased my meds ever in over two years, so I need to be able to know what she is doing when I ask her to change the meds. The oxycontin does not help so much anymore and the side effects concern me alot. I developed long qt syndrome from 2yrs on methadone so I am real nervous about this new formulation of oxycontin anyway. So needless to say I cant take methadone and morphine makes me ill and fentynal did not work for me but that was over ten years ago. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Hi Connie,

I did find that OxyContin is just another brand name for Oxycodone. So I can't be sure whether or not it will be much different at all in terms of how it may effect you.

In the link below you can view a chart of prescription and non prescription pain medications ranked from weak to strong. (you can use this chart to determine what other options you have as far as switching over to a stronger or similar medication):

I hope this helps!

SUBOXONE is a drug people use that can not tolerate opiates well. i do not know for certain much of anything else but i do know that a negative result on a drug panel could get you kicked off the program.. and it is common to come up negative even if you take it regularly..
