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 pain medication (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 avail...

Pain Doctors Alabama

My dr in Mont., AL has been prescribing me 3 80mg oxycontin for several years. My visit last week he refilled my script and said it could be the last because he was told there was diversion possibly coming from his practice. Btw that was 3 a day. If he doesn't refill my script on my next visit, I need to find a Dr. quick. Is it legal not to wean a patient off? The pain clinics in this town are full. ## If he cannot continue to prescribe, he should be able to refer to another doctor or clinic that will accept his current patients. Has he suggested anyone? And yes, it is perfectly legal for a doctor to stop prescribing your medications, even if they are habit forming, at any time. They are not obligated to treat you or prescribe anything, unless you are in life threatening danger. As ...

round orange pill with 20 on it

small round orange yellow pill 40 on one side 00 on other ## small round yellow orange pill 40 on one side 00 on other ## Was the marking possibly OC 40? Could you please double check and post back? If so, Purdue Pharma lists it as being a 40mg Oxycontin tablet, which is no longer manufactured. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, constipation, headache, and dry mouth. They changed their formulation a few years ago, and now use the OP marking, they have also made them more abuse proof.

Oxycontin & mscontin

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...

pictures of generic oxycontin

There are new-generic 2017 Oxycontin now. My pharmacy filled my script with generic because they thought my Dr. Did not write "no substitution" he did by checking the "no substitution" box so they had to unfill & refill with OP's, not knowing what they are like, I did not want the generic. What do the 80 mg tablets look like? Do they work as well as the OP's? Who is the manufacturer? ## There is no generic Oxycontin currently available on the U.S. market. Generics are only available for the ones that aren't time released. What are the markings on the one the pharmacy provided you with? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. ## ...

yellowish round pill with M in a box and numbers 595 on other side

Found a pill in my daughter's room - it's a yellowish round pill with M in a box and numbers 595 on other side. Anyone know what it is? ## The round yellow pill with M on one side and 595 on other side is the generic oxycontin pain killer 40mg. It is extremely addictive so you should talk to your daughter about it asap. ## I am holding one in my hand at the moment, and it is 100% a 40mg Controlled Release Oxycodone. This is a highly potent drug, and if it is not prescribed for your daughter, than it is also very illegal. Hope that this helps. ## Well, there is no doubt it is an oxy, and that's an opium, which is highly addictive and starts to hurt you Cuz Once you r addicted, I'd you don't have it, you become what is called "DOPE SICK" this it's very very...

Oxycontin damaged my teeth

Has anyone else known oxycontin to rot the teeth? I used to be on vicodin until my doctor told me I needed to switch to a morphine based meds. She put me on ms contin but I had problems with it so she put me on 80mg oxycontin. Eventually my body built up a tolerance so she kept raising it, i have am now on from 4-6 per day of the 80mg tabs. It scares me that this is what rotted my teeth because only 5 yrs ago i had only 2 cavities that needed filling and then only 1 yr after going on the oxycontin i had to have all my top front teeth pulled as they where rotting from the inside out the dentist said my mouth looked like a heroin addict's mouth looks. He said it was shocking to him that normally he only saw such damage from someone who abused drugs with so much dental damage, but i ha...

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma

I have been in Pain management since 2004 in California and just Moved out there to muskogee Oklahoma... unfortunately there are NO doctors here willing to treat my pain i was on a regiment of 80mg Oxycontin 2X daily 10/325mg Norcos every 4 hours and 4mg IV dilaudid as needed for breakthrough pain... i am in search of a doctor out this way who is actualluy willing to perscribe these meds... thanks ## Well, the first question I have is, how are you checking with the doctors about getting help? The reason I am asking is because if you're calling various doctor's offices and asking if they'll treat you and prescribe specific medications, then you will pretty much always get told no. When someone does that, doctor's and their staff are taught to see it as drug seeking behavi...

picture of 10 mg oc

10 oc ## Please help! Found a tannish maybe peachish small round pill, it seems to have more of a smooth coated texture then powdery, with what looks like a 10 on one side and a oc on the other. It was near where kids were brushing teeth in mom in laws bathroom! They said they didn't touch it, but still worried! We don't know what it is! ## This is an older Oxycontin tablet, which contains 10mgs of Oxycodone in a time released formulation, tablets with this marking are no longer available on the U.S. market. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Even if they did touch it, it would not cause any harm, it would have to be ingested to cause any issues. However, in the...

red pill tcll 60

red round pill tcll 60 ## I'm not too sure where or what this pill was used for.?? I have cerable palsy, and I used to take this pill for my back pain..I used to take this pill last year when I broke my back..since then I've had it fused back together..just wondering what this pill was or is.??? ## its a oxycotin op 60mg pill they're time released ## That is incorrect, this is not any type of prescription product. Pills marked with TCl are over the counter products, which are available as generics and store brands in many different stores. I can't find a listing for this one, because over the counter products are not required to be logged in the databases, like prescription medications are. The time release Oxycontin 60mg would carry the marking of OC 60 or OP 60 on the ...
