OxyContin Overview

Oxycodone, sold under the brand names Roxicodone and OxyContin (which is the extended release form) among others, is an opioid medication used for treatment of moderate to severe pain.

pics of oxy contin 40mg

gg235 ## If the pill is pink and really says GG 235 then it IS NOT oxycontin, rather it is generic promethazine 50mg, generic for Phenergan. It is an antihistamine typically used to control moderate to severe nausea among other things. Side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, headache, among other side effects. ## Also, there are several generic forms of oxycontin 40mg now so it would be hard to pull up each picture. I can tell you that each company is trying to keep the same color as the original, kind of a yellow color. Hope this helps. ## A round pink tablet with GG over 235 on one side is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, and they list it as containing 50mgs of Promethazine, which is most commonly used to help treat, or prevent, nausea, and vomiting.

oxycontin ox 20 pill

Light pink round pill with ox 20 on one side. Real or fake. Search brings nothin up ## They look really besides the ox instead of op or oc ## Did you try it yet? If so how was it?? ## @James, Personally, I wouldn't trust this pill if you didn't go through your doctor and a licensed pharmacy to obtain it. As from what I can tell, no one else on this site has come across anything like it in other related threads. The OX 20 imprint just seems like a fake in my opinion, based on NIH.gov depictions of how 20mg Oxycontin should look if it was actually a legitimate Oxycontin pill. Real 20mg Oxycontin's by Purdue Pharmaceuticals are, like you said, marked with OC 20 or OP 20. Have you considered getting the pill analyzed by a lab just to be on the safe side? ## There from diff count...

Laid off from job. No insurance. Been on OxyContin 60 for 4 years can't afford it now. What are the alternative medications?

I was laid off from my job after 18 years!!! I have been taking OxyContin 60 for over 5 years now for chronic pain. I have applied to Purdue for their patient assistance program to receive free OxyContin. Dr. Has been in touch with them but it takes at least four weeks to receive the medication. She is presently looking up the alternative medications that I can take in between now and the delivery of my medication from Purdue. Can anyone help me with the alternatives? I'm a wreck and so worried that whatever I'm going to be given will not work as well as the OxyContin 60. ## You may want to talk to your doctor about trying the time released Morphine, the name brand is MS Contin, but it's also available as a generic. It isn't as potent as Oxycodone, so you'd need a hi...

oxycontin formulary new insurance

oxcodone IR 30mg to replace oxycontin CR 40mg no insurance on oxycontin ## Hello, Freefall! How are you? Your doctor should be able to prescribe the regular release Oxycodone for you, in lieu of the Oxycontin. However, you should be aware that there is no immediate release in these higher dosages, it is only available as a capsule in 5mgs. 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. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? If the 40mg twice a day has been controlling your pain, they'll likely want to try to keep you as close to that dosage as possibly. ## The new oxycontin may not work for you, but I have been put on xtampz...

Insurance company refusing to pay for oxycontin

insurance company now won't pay for chronic pain meds. (oxycontin) noting all kinds of reasons which I answered. It started with pre authorization, then reduced dosage, (have had same dosage for four years). I have never misused or tried to get meds. early. I know this is an abused medication but I have to go to work every day and this allows me to do so. They say I have a right to appeal and have looked for legal help but nobody will take case. Any help would be appreciated. I can't afford $900.00 per month. ## Hello, Josh! How are you? I am sorry about the problems you're having, that's horrible. As to the legal help, when the insurance company says you have the right to appeal, that is an internal process that you handle with them, they will tell you what information ...

xtampza 13.5 not working

Is it just me and the pain I'm in or does anyone else feel like the Xtampza just isn't cutting it ! I started on 9mg every 12 hours two months ago. I at one point even filled out a DEA report and returned the medication to my doctor's office ( after spending a lot of money on it) To only have to go without it because my insurance insists it's same as others and wouldn't let me fill another type. Anyway, was put back on it, in this type of pain, I'll try try try. Now I'm getting it twice a day 13.5 mg ( equivalent to a 15mg) ...It gives me a headache and spaces me out and I can honestly say does not last 12 hours as it claims to. You can literally ( physically) feel it wear off within 8 hours and is crappy ! It is not , does not control my pain... Maybe it...

Xtampza what a joke

I also have been switched to Xtampza from OxyContin 2 weeks ago. Sorry, Xtampza no where near comes close to relieving my pain. I am now back in my bed or chair for most of the day, very depressed. My Doctors have noticed a complete difference in my look, affect, body, mood. Not just my pain Dr but my primary and my Therapist. I hope all of the polititions, DEA! CDC and happy. The only cure for my pain is 6 feet under ground.......good luck all ## What dose was prescribed for you? They both contain the same active ingredient, in a time released formulation, which is Oxycodone. 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. ## 36mg. It is said to be equal to my previo...

Round Pink Pill 02 on one side and A on the other

Is it true that my prescription for oxycontin 20mg can be round pink with 02 on one side and A on the other, or did they give me the wrong medication? ## No, a round, pink tablet with an A on one side and 02 on the other is listed as being a 20mg Simvastatin tablet, it's used to help lower cholesterol. Learn more Simvastatin details here. I couldn't find any listings for any Oxycodone tablets with that marking and meeting that description. Have you double checked with the dispensing pharmacy? ## yes and no its not an oc its an op........ which they are for the most part the same thing except that an op has a additive that wont let the pill be abused. It will make the pill gel up if u try and abuse the pill... Hope that I helped out and answered your question ## Pink 02 20 round ...

small round light yellow pill blank on one side and a triangle on the other

What is this pill? It came from the Dominican republic and I'm told its an OC 40mg ## It's not any Oxycontin/Oxycodone that I'm familiar with. Can you provide a better description of the triangle? Is it just an outline, or a full triangle? Learn more Oxycodone details here. ## Its an imprint. Its from the Dominican republic so I don't think you'd be familiar with it if you're only familiar with American pills. ## Yes its real oxycodone 40 milligrams ... it has a triangle on one side ## Hey Jason how do you know what that pill is. I was cleaning out an old bag and found a couple in there. They are small and off white with just a triangle imprint. Never seen one before. But I heard its Oxy 40mg. Is that possible ## Did you find out what it was? I just got one and a...
