OxyContin for Methadone Withdrawal

I take 100mgs of methadone every day for the past 12 years. I ran out of methadone and can't go to my Dr for 2 days. Will OxyContin 20mg help with the methadone withdrawal? If anyone knows please let me know. ## Hello John. No it will not. I have been on methadone for over 30 years, been there done that. You say you have 2 more days to go to see your Dr. Well, as you know, methadone is a long acting medication. You would be fine the first day, especially taking 100mgs. Without it, you might not feel your best, but won't withdraw. But the second day you may start to get sick. You could try to take it for the second day. Everyone is different. It may take the edge off of feeling sick and your pain, but does your Dr do drug urinalysis? Because if he does and you take the oxycontin ...

My OxyContin 20mg wears off before 12 hours

Has anyone else noticed that OxyContin 20mg wears off before 12 hours? I'm waiting for the extended relief pain meds to take effect and it doesn’t last for 12 hours. ## They’ve never lasted 12 hours since they were brought to market. That was how they flooded the streets. Doctors knew they didn’t last 12 hours so they would prescribe an extra here and there. Now I think they give people oxycodone for break through pain. ## They destroyed Oxycontin in 2009 with the rock hard polymer that was added to create the worthless OP version that works maybe 5 to 8 hours if you're lucky. Once the pill gets past the proton pumps in your stomach nothing will metabolize the pill any further... Prudue knew this, but no one cared how the pill worked just as long as drug addict...

Can Teeth Rot Because Of Oxycontin Use

ive been on these for about 7 years and was just asking coz my teeth are slowly getting worse also on oxynorm amitriptoline seratail co-codamol and have just started on fentanyl patches please help ## Your teeth can be affected by many medications, especially narcotics. The problem is caused due to the fact that they tend to sap the minerals from your body, plus they cause dry mouth, which allows more bacteria to sit on your teeth. From the medications you are taking, all of the narcotics, the Oxycontin, Co-Codamol, Oxynorm and the Fentanyl can cause a loss of calcium, as well as dry mouth. And the Amitryptiline can also cause dry mouth as a side effect. Many people on long-term narcotic pain management end up with severe dental issues and a lot have lost all their teeth and required de...

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...

red and white capsule no markings need help??

I found a couple pills in my boyfriends cig pack he is a recoverying drug addict as id like to think. no markings half white Nd half dark red so not sure what it can be. ## Hello, Veronica! How are you? I'm sorry, but without any markings, it's going to be difficult to narrow down what these are, however, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. All prescription medications have to have markings, so these are most likely and over the counter medication of some type. Does anyone else recognize these? ## OxyContin and acetaminophen. Most likely 5 mg oxy and 500 aceta But can be higher dosage. ## I too have bought them. They are compounded dilaudid 8 mg ## I have a red and white capsule,it is support to be a 8 mg dilaudid? I have never seen them in this...

Small round blue pill with NN on one side and 5 on the other

I'm trying to identify a small pale blue bi-convex pill with N|N on one side and 5 on the other side. My friend said that they are oxycontin but I believe it actually is oxybutynin. Anybody know for sure? It's from Canada and most likely a generic brand. ## Yes, there is an Oxybutynin from Canada that matches this description, it is a 5mg tablet, and is most commonly used to treat overactive bladder. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, and urinary retention. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Round small blue pill with 5 on one side and n|n on the other side . Was told it was an oxy cotin , might even be a repressed pill

unidentified pills found in a bottle of oxycontin

i had found some oxycontin leftover from my stepmother in-law's bout with cancer, and in a smaller bottle that was in with them. in this bottle i found a bunch of small white round pills, about 1/4 of an inch in diameter. on one side is the number 25, on the other is an uppercase I, slanted slightly. i don't know what these pills are but would love some imput! ## THAT IS NOT OXYCONTIN. A WHITE OXY IS SMALL ROUND ON ONE SIDE IS A OC, OTHER SIDE IS A 10 FOR MILLIGRAMS. PINK ONE, OC ON ONE SIDE, OTHER SIDE A 20, FOR 20 MILLIGRAMS. THEN THEY SKIP TO 40mg.ETC. ETC. THEY ARE MADE BY PURDUE PHARM. I CHECKED MY PDR BUT HAD NO LUCK FINDING YOUR PILL SO I CANNOT SAY. GOOD LUCK. ## And Sheri is incorrect, what she is talking about are just the name brand Oxy's, there have been generics...

Pain pill withdrawals after taking saboxon

I fell 25 feet and shattered my heal bone into 10 pieces had major foot surgery back in December 2016. Ortho put me OxyContin 30 for 2 weeks. The. He switched me to narco 10-325. I was taking 2 every 4 hours for almost 3 months. Then I had to see a pain doctor, which he gave me 120 a month for a little over 3 months. I was tired of taking them. So he put me on saboxon 8 mg strips. I tried taking a whole strip which made me very sick. So I cut them into 4 pices. He gave me 14 packs to start with I made them last about 3 weeks. I stopped taking them a week ago. On the 8th day with out them I started have withdrawals from them this is the third day and the withdrawals are horrible. Does any one no how long the withdrawals should last. Thanks ## It is hard to say, since much of it depends o...

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...

pain management shreveport

Does anyone know of any primary care physicians in the Shreveport/Bossier City/Haughton/Minden area that do pain management? I have been going to a pain management doctor here in Shreveport for about 6 years now, but it is just getting to expensive. He refuses to to go any higher on my dosage of Oxycontin, which is 30 mg 3 times a day. And he will not give me anything for break through pain. I am on Medicaid so I have to pay him out of pocket. Medicaid pays for 60 of my oxy's, but I have to pay for the other 30. If I knew of a primary care physician that accepts does some pain management and also accepts medicaid it would be a really big help. I'd really appreciate anyone that could help me out and answer this. Thank you. ## There aren't any PCP's who do Pain Management ...
