I got my Oxycontin (name brand) today and thought i had gotten the generic because it had OP imprinted on it instead of th regular OC imprinted on it. I ask my phamacist what was going on and he said that Oxycontin had changed their logo. I noticed the pill was slighly bigger so when i took my pill i noticed it give me heartburn really bad just like the generic did when i tried the generic. Now i am in pain, i have the heartburn, and i don't know if i will be able to hold this new formular down because i am so sick at my stomach. Do you think Purdue will ever change the formula of Oxycontin back to the original? I sure hope so. I am going to start a petition to get the old formula back again. Anyone interested in singing it please let me know. Loretta Sloan 630 Bird Road Magnolia, KY 42757.

The new Oxycontin OP has been specially formulated to help prevent abuse.

However, there have been many complaints about it causing weird side effects or not working.


To get someone to take notice of the problem, you should use the following phone numbers to report such issues:

Purdue Pharma number for drug safety/medication issues:


FDA MedWatch number:


Does anyone have any questions?

i like the old formula. it really helped my pain.ive heard so many stories about the change. and they havent been good. everyone i have talked to says they make them so sick, and dont help the pain. I hope whoever got this passed that they change the pill is happy with their self. im in severe chronic pain. and thats all that has ever made me feel like my normal self again(free from pain) most likely these people that have been against this medication dont hurt like hell when they get out of bed and have to make their medication before they can walk normal and get their self dressed every morning. just because someone in their family wewnt out and bought on the streets and overdosed on it. how is that our fault. the ones that are leagally prescribed this medication!Thanksyou all for doing this to the ones that really need it. how come they still have hydros,oxycodones ect...people have overdosed on those just as much or more than the oxy's....Personaly i really dont like the fact that i have to injest plastic now! and be as sick as a dog after taking these. bring back our old formula. the one that works!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband takes Oxycontin 20mg. when we picked his RX up 9/24/10 he noticed the pill had OP on it instead of OC, he takes two a day. Ever since 9/24/10, he's been taking them and has had really bad heartburn and he's throwing up 4-6 times per day. I don't know how to help him. He had no problem with the old name brand oxys. Help!!!

I have had cronic back and neck pain for 12 yrs. now and endured two spinal fusions. I have tried almost every pain reliever out there and never got relief until my doctor prescribed me oxycontin. I cant get off my couch (where I have to sleep cause its the only place comfortable enough for me) in the morning without taking my medicine first. Now they have changed the ONLY medication that helps me deal with living my life in so much pain and gives me the most relief. This new op oxycontin does not help my pain AT ALL! It makes me sick to my stomach, also gives me heart burn and I get zero relief for the pain!! I totally understand that there is a bad problem with people abusing thier medications and people using oxycontin to smoke, snort and shoot up, but are the people with legitimate pain. Are we suppose to be punished because of these others? Before I found oxycontin I use to think of ways to end my life because I could not bare the horrible pain I had 24 hrs. a day and then it was like a mirracle happen when I first took them. If they dont change them back to the original formula I dont know what I am gonna do. I cant and wont live my life in all this pain. I know im not alone, so how many people have to suffer because of some bad apples in the bunch? There will always be drug addicted people out there in the world and trying to change one medication isnt gonna be the answer. This is gonna create more problems for good people than help the people that abuse them. Please, please, please bring the original brand back!!!

My first month on the new Oxy and I am sick as a dog...terrible heartburn and very speedy-little pain relief. Was afraid o say anything until I saw these comments. Something MUST be done. I've been taking oxy since 1998 and have never felt like this! Every doctor needs to know about this...and it is NO joke1

I have been using low dosage(10 mg) 3 x day for 7 years to buffer chronic pain from severe scholiosis and the arthritis that has set in every joint in my body because of the trauma and abuse my joints have sustained over 65 years. I am vigilant not to exceed this dosage. On a good day with low activity, I can get away with 2 pills. But, I am very active and love life. Oxycontins old formulation gave me a fairly good quality of life. My doctor monitors me closely and I have yearly blood tests. I am not an addict nor do I abuse this med. The druggest filled my prescription with the new oxycontin plastic pill last month. Horrible. They did not buffer my pain and I had a miserable month of sleeping and felt sick all month. I was forced to use some otc meds to control the pain and that is too dangerous for my kidneys and liver. I refused to refill my prescription this month when I found out that this is the new pill and I cannot get anything else, not even a generic. I don't know how I will control my pain. Does anyone have suggestions? I cannot understand how the slick tounged pharma company can get this by the drug administration and gain such a powerful monopoly. How is this payoff being dispursed?

I am a disabled Veteran with severe back, neck, knee, and liver problems. I have noticed a difference also. This has acetemenophen in it and I was told no but yet has been verified by other people as a yes. I can only take so much Tylenol due to my liver. I have had severe headaches and been sick and in more pain since taking this new medication. I too am angry that they have messed with one of the best pain meds to keep the few abusers that will surely figure out a way to do what they need to with this medicine too, from the real Oxycotin. Bring it back Purdue. This new formula sucks and is not helping those of us who truly need it. Please do not make us beg... We are chronic pain people who use this legitimatley and need this medication to get up and moving. Help us, those who really need you.

my brother was hurt in vietnam and in severe pain until the came out with oxycontin. I see him on a daily basis and since the have come out with the new oc he has gone downhill pain,heartburn,vomiting etc... He went and fought for us and now he has to suffer because Purdue seems to think they are going to stop drug abuse by changing oxycontin into a non benificial pain killer. Please give the non addicts their pain relief back.

So.........Im NOT crazy!! Says:

I take oxycontin 80 mg 6 tabs twice daily for pancreatic cancer. Never really paid attention to what the pills looked like, just that they were blue. Then about a month ago I noticed heartburn,which i had never had but chalked it up to a new symptom. Then came the massive increase in having to take my breakthrough meds. Finally, I have noticed whole 80mg pills in my stool periodically. How DARE they mess with peoples pain meds without so much as an announcement of some kind! I asked my hospice nurse why some pills would be passing without being digested, she seemed genuinely puzzled so I think these pharma creeps and their political pets want it kept on the down low, no boats rockin! Tell everyone you know about this...its no better than those pharmacists who were passing off diluted to uselessness meds for cancer patients a few yrs back .....what do they care, its not their pain, RIGHT? Im so furious I cant see straight....oh wait, maybe its just the plastic building up in my system. May those responsible for denying FULL pain relief to others suffer for it themselves when their time comes.

All you need is a Pedi-paw and grind them up (powders up better than the old OC's!) and snort!!!!
I tried the microwave/freezer method and it seems like such a waste of time and energy! Thank God for Pedi Paw!!!!

I have been taking oc20 brand for about 2 years cuz I can't tolerate Asa. For about a month I received these new op20 they simply don't work and my stomach bile doesn't digest them leaving them to raw sewage. I also have headaches and heartburn I never experienced before. My question why should many good people suffer at the hands of illegal pirating drug addicts. They will just kill themselves with other methods. We need action now or I will switch to kadian opana or avinsa to find relief but op20 are by far less more effective. Thank u for reading. Signed a very concerned patient.
