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, generally indicated for relief of moderate to severe pain.[8] Oxycodone was developed in 1917 in Germany[9][10] as one of several semi-synthetic opioids in an attempt to improve on the existing opioids.[1] Oxycodone is available as single-ingredient medication in immediate release and c...

White Oval Pill N On One Side it has the number 20 on the other sider it is blank

i think it might be a oxycotin 20 mg but not sure if anyone knows please let me know it is very important...thank you all in advance.... ## No, there is no Oxycontin with this marking, nor have I found any other Oxycodone formulations in the U.S. that have that marking. The FDA warns that Oxycodone carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Can you double check the imprint? Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## Small oval pill White 20 on one side Score on one side

Pain medication for chronic back pain
3 Replies RSS
I have had major back surgery. I had 4 fusions. I have 12 3" screws in me. I'm still in chronic pain. What is a good slow release pain medication for the day and something at night when I get home? ## Hello, Josh! How are you? There are actually several available, such as Oxycontin, which contains a time released formulation of Oxycodone. MS Contin, which is a time released formulation of Morphine and the Duragesic patch that contains the narcotic Fentanyl. These are narcotic analgesics, so they have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Those are all options that you may want to discuss with your doctor. What are you currently taking? ## Much thanks for your response and info. I'm on ...

Looking for New Orleans PM Doctor
1 Reply RSS
My previous doctor is no longer practicing and I have been a CPP for more than 20 years. For the last 7, I was prescribed 2-80 mg Oxycontin ER twice a day and 30 mg oxycodone every 6 hours for breakthrough pain. I have not been able to find a doctor who accepts my insurance, most want cash and the visits are sky high-which I wouldn't mind if I was getting prescribed a long-acting and short-acting pain medicine. If anyone has any decent PM doctors please reply. ## Hey, I'm in the same boat as you. I've been in PM for a while now taking oxymorphone er and oxycodone 30s. I'm from New Orleans but been living in Arizona while on PM. Moving back to Nola in a few months and I'm going to need a new PM Doc. Has anyone replied to your message with a good contact?

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
634 Replies RSS
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...
