OxyContin Overview

Oxycodone is a semisynthetic opioid synthesized from thebaine, an opioid alkaloid found in the Persian poppy, and one of the many alkaloids found in the opium poppy. It is a moderately potent opioid analgesic (orally roughly 1.5 times more potent than morphine),[8] generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain.[9] Oxycodone was developed in 1917 in Germany[10][11] as one of several semi-synthetic opioids in an attempt to improve on the existing opioids.[1] Oxycodone is available a...

Hey all, I was born with dislocated hips and have had more than 10 operations throughout my life since I was born to correct the issue, according to my dr. It was the worst case he has ever seen and my hip bones and joints have fused into my pelvis I can not open my legs at all or spread them I can not run or jump walking is extremely difficult and I get tired fast and my legs are in a lot of pain after 27 years I had enough of it so my bone dr referred me to a pain specialist. Fast forward to three years later now I’m 30 years of age. My only hope is for a complete hip replacement and after being on pain medication for the last 3 years nothing is working anymore. My dr had me on 60mg of oxyContin 3 times a day (180mg daily) and short acting oxycodone twice daily. Now, my question...

What is the difference between hydrocodone and oxycontin???
4 Replies RSS Share
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...

Yellow pill with APO R20
1 Reply RSS Share
My friend got this pill and said it was an OxyContin 20mg, but I don't think so! It was yellowish in color, a small tablet with APO on one side and R20 on the other. Could you please research this for me? ## You are correct, Apotex Canada lists this tablet as containing 20mgs of Rabeprazole, which is a generic for Dexilant, it is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to help treat, or prevent conditions, such as ulcers, heartburn, GERD, and gastritis. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Oxycontin Alternatives
3 Replies RSS Share
I would like to know if there is any pain medication that compares or is an alternative to oxycontin (80mg), besides opana? ## There is a time released Morphine on the market, as both a generic and under the name brand MS Contin. It is not as strong as Oxycodone, so you would require a higher dosage. If you were taking 80mgs of Oxycontin, then you'd need 120mgs of MS Contin. There is also a patch on the market, which contains the active ingredient Fentanyl, it is very potent, over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Are there any other questions? ## I am on 80mg oxycontin, what strength ms contin would I require as a equivalent? ## I broke 10 vertebrae in a serious accident a number of years ago. I have been taking Oxycontin 30mg ER for several years to help with chronic pain. My healt...

did they replace all the original oxycontin with this new crush resistance formula
80 Replies RSS Share
I heard that all the pharmacy replaced all the original oxycontin (OC) with this new formula that prevents anyone from crushing it. The new pills says OP on the one side instead of it saying OC. And if you still can get the original oxycontin (OC) do you now need to request it from your doctor so he can write you a prescription for the original oxycontin (the pill that says OC on one side instead of it saying OP ## The original Oxycontin has been discontinued and will no longer be available. Once pharmacies are out of their current stock, there will not longer be a supply of it out there. The new Oxycontin OP has been specially designed to prevent abuse, by retaining its time released properties, even if crushed or chewed. Otherwise, for pain, it works the same and still has the same si...

Accidentally cut Oxycontin in half
9 Replies RSS Share
Wanted to break ambien in half but accidentally did it to my oxycodone 30mg instead. Is it dangerous to take half of a standard dosage? ## It may release too much of the medication, at once, since OxyContin is a time released formulation. What I'd suggest in this case is just not taking that pill. How did you accidentally cut the wrong one? ## Is there a non-nacotic prescription medication that I can take in place of Oxycontin for severe/chronic low back pain. I have just taken myself off Oxycontin because I felt it was doing more harm than good. I was taking 30mg twice a day. I have not taken any Oxycontin since last Thursday 8/16/12 and I'm a great deal of paid, in withdrawals including insomnia, vomiting, anxiety, confusion and general overall mallaise. Please please please h...
