Oxycodone with prescription

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone with prescription


Avatar f tn I also talk w/ my surgeon about it). However with the pain getting so bad I could not work or do anything with my 2 young children or my wife. So, I am currently taking a very high dose of oxycontin and oxyIR for breakthru pain. Also, I was able to get the brand name oxycontin which worked by FAR the best, but now have to get the generic oblong ones which are the worse. The round generic are somewhat better, but the brand seems to be almost 2-3x's better.
Avatar n tn low dose formulations of oxycodone such as percocet(oxycodone/acetiminophen(tylenol)) or percodan(oxycodone/aspirin) which is most commonly given in 5mg or 10 mg tablets is usually given after certain surgeries and for people in severe pain. both oxycontin and percocet abuse has grown in popularity immensely in the past 10 years. its extremely drastic how fast it has arose to being a DOC for people. and the wd's are the same as other opiates of its kind like heroin or dilaudid.
Avatar m tn every 30 days to get a face to face prescription as my wife and I travel out of state - Is there an issue with a 90 day prescription? What are the guidelines / rules - why this concern for a 74 yr. ????? I see my primary doc., Heart doctor, Pacemaker doc., Dermatologist, Ortho for Knee /Hip, Pulmonoloogist (Have COPD), Dentist, and upon occasion a Neurosurgery doc. as well as a Pain Mgmt. doc.) Please help!
Avatar n tn Thank you so much for your fast response! I am so happy to hear your children are both happy and healthy! You have helped tremendously! You have no idea how scared and worried I have been! I will hopefully be off really soon, the doctors are thinking about suboxone for a couple days to help take the edge off and from then off I will remain off until the day he is born! Do you remember what mg you were on? And they didn't need to wean your babies off? Thanks a million!
Avatar f tn Methadone will not interfere with absorption or function of Oxycodone. You may be thinking of another drug. Many ppl find great relief with Methadone.... Indeed there are some interesting articles that praise benefits of Methadone in Pan Management. So relax and enjoy a restful night's sleep. :o) If you have additional question please feel free to post them...... we'll try to be helpful!
Avatar f tn I have another two pharmacies that don't know about my insurance, I pay cash from time to time at those pharmacies. Luckily, Oxycodone is a cheap pain med without insurance! I have had problems with Walgreens Pharmacy, one of the pharmacies I use my insurance at. They started calling the doctor who prescribed Oxycodone and they told that doctor that I've been getting Oxy's from a list of other doctors!!! Does anyone know of the risk with that? Lately, I have been avoiding Walgreens!
Avatar f tn Lots of mommy's have taken and come off prescription pain medications with the help of their doctor. Its best to wean off them from what Ive read. You will be OK. How far along are you? Keep talking to us there will be other members on later that have some better advice ;). (((hugs)))~Bkitty and congrats!
Avatar m tn Hi there, sounds like everyone has gave you great information. I too totally agree. I realize you probably already know this from all the good information from the community, but I would just like to reinerate that as long if you only have (1) Doctor that wrote both controlled prescriptions you will be just fine. Please remember I'm no Dr., and don't have all the answers, but with that said I like to give healthy opinions.
Avatar n tn Do you know if it's actually the oxycodone that you are having a problem with? Or could it be something that is in the tablet with it? The reason I ask is because before I started taking oxycodone, the drug that my doctor had me on for a while was Vicodin. I had absolutely no problem with it, and I took it for about 10 months before I started going to my current neurologist.
Avatar m tn My suggestion is just to be honest with your doctor and yourself. Yes it's okay to say oxycodone works for you, but maybe think before you say it's the only thing that works. I bet 80 mg. oxycontin would work also, or most any opiate with the equivalent dosage of 30mg. oxycodone tablets.
1757846 tn?1312752049 well you might be one of those that for no aperent reason other then God is getting thew it with little or mild withdrawals....also if you really took a lot b/4 you quit the serum level in you blood may still be high enough to keep the withdrawals at bay for a couple of days....kinda what im thinking here.....man that a lot of pills in one day hang in there and just be ready for what ever this puts you threw you habit is going to su ck the life out of you.....
Avatar n tn Most pharmacies have different days they have stock come in so check what day yours has theirs come in and be there then with your prescription ready. I done this today. I had an appointment and so I called the pharmacy and she said she had just enough but she could not hold them without the prescription so my doctor gave my son the prescription to have it filled while I was waiting to see the doctor, how nice:) It seems if you use the same pharmacy they will be more apt to help.
Avatar m tn My doctor has led me to believe that she can only prescribe one month at a time with no refills, but the doctor (dentist) that I work for recently told me that a doctor can give a RX for oxycodone with 2 refills, equaling a three month supply. I live in Minnesota.
Avatar m tn ) to 7-8 5mg pills before and my body seems okay with that (but sometimes not). So I've been taking oxycodone in some formulation now for approximately 13 months. Does anyone have any incite as to which prescription I should cut out first? My thought would be the OxyContin 40mg since I can guage my dosage per day with the 5mg tabs.
Avatar m tn Once that happened I would just not take anything for a few months until my friend came back in town. About 2 months ago I was introduced to Oxycodone 30mg. I started taking half a pill in the evening and now I am up to 3 a night and i take them all at once. I have been doing this for about 2 months and did not think i had a problem until the other day when my stash ran out.
Avatar f tn And I'm nauseated, and my head feels like it is vibrating. My husband has been taking such wonderful care of me, and he had to go back to work tonight, which scares me. He hid the last of my stash (at my request) and left me 1/2 for when I reach the 16-20 hour mark. I did get out and take the dog to the vet today, don't know how I did it, because now I feel like I've been chewed up and spit out, a miserable glob.
Avatar f tn Is there anyone out there who take these drugs not just for the feeling of getting high, but to feel good about yourself? I sometimes have a drink with them to maximize the effects. I know this is dangerous, but I can't help it. I started out taking them as prescribed, one tablet every four hours, to taking 3 at a time every 3-4 hours. The effect does not last long anymore. I am afraid I will start taking more and more just to feel better longer.
Avatar m tn I have been taking 7.5mg of oxycodone hcl for the last 3 years, as a result of a failed ankle transplant which is now collapsing. I often snort the dose in belief that it will more quickly ease my pain, which is excruciating in the mornings. I have decided i no longer want to be taking this stuff for whatever reason. Maybe it's the negative stigma that is associated with painkillers like these, but i almost feel ashamed to be taking this.
Avatar f tn I have been on opiates on & off almost 2 years. The doctor switched me to oxycodone 6 months ago & I have been a daily user since then. I also take gabepentin & Baclofen for pain & muscle spasms the pain triggers. About 2-3 months ago I started feeling pressure in my ears & tinnitus in my right ear, especially at night. I saw my allergist and he said I might have hearing loss. Now I need to see an ENT to get my ears checked.
Avatar f tn Ive been on 15mg oxycodone every six hours prn for almost a year. I hv ruptured bulging disc and almost no disc cushion between some of my lower disc. Ive been struggling with pain for ten years. With my current PM doctor ive tried ms contin percocet methadone and now duragesic 25mcg. I take a new med it seems to work for one to two weeks then it stops.
Avatar f tn I need some guidance. I've always been a responsible person with a good job and good morals. A few years ago my boyfriend was using pain pills regularly. If I had a bad migraine or something he would give me one. I never thought I was in danger of addiction. I've never had an addictive personality. Well I began to use recreationally occasionally. Like take one every couple months at an event or something like that. Nearly two years ago my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer.
Avatar n tn like avisg said, if he could taper down some it may be a little less shock to his system.....that is a high dose...there are different ways to quit...scan the health pages...lots of good info there....like gtm said...he has to want it and commit to the goal....it is a process that takes commitment...
Avatar n tn I have been on a high dose of oxycodone for Lupus for the past 8 months. I take up to 150 MG a day of oxycodone, I am trying to get off because I feel as if I don't need the meds anymore, I have found a different non-narcotic to help ease the pain. I am not pain free but the oxycodone is worse than the pain I am in. I can't seem to get off the oxt though, I am experiencing extremely bad withdrawals, and I can't seem to get any help from my doctors.
Avatar f tn I just had sex with a gay guy who is on Oxycodone! He performed oral on me, and we mutually masterbated. As I was leaving I saw the prescription bottle on his counter, and it read Oxycodone... So I googled it, and it says something about HIV risk factor or something. I don't know. May I have contracted the virus?
Avatar m tn It should last up to 12 hrs. opposed to 4-6 hrs. with the Oxycodone. I don'rt feel that there is any difference between the two as far as pain management goes. Why do you ask?
Avatar f tn You need to speak with your doctor to help with slowing reducing the amounts which will help tremendously with withdrawals and I don't know if your in pain management but you may want to check into it maybe they can use injections they help some folks but not all. Tramadol is non narcotic however anything can become additive. Try finding a support group in your area, an exercise program, physical therapy, heat or ice can help with the pain and make it more manageable. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm new to this site, so I don't know if I'm at the right place, but I'm looking for some advice on taking Oxycodone while 29 weeks pregnant. I woke up this past Thursday with sharp severe pain in my lower left abdomen right above my pelvic bone. The pain went away in 20 minutes, so I was nervous about the baby, but I felt movement, so I didn't overreact.
Avatar m tn I know doctors are leery about giving pain meds to patients, as well they should be, but there are instances where it's necessary. My question is why do I get nausious when I take hydrocodone and not when I've taken oxycodone? I asked an er doctor for oxycodone instead of hydrocone and told him why. He gave me hydrocone anyway. I also told him I am not an abuser of prescription drugs because I have personally experienced the outcome of it.
167 tn?1374177417 My doctor is talking about reducing my shifts but also gave me Oxycodone to help with the pain. She gave me 30 pills. I got the prescription filled last Thursday but have not taken any. I have never taken this medication and have heard so many different things from people saying it's extremely addicting and you feel good when you take it, to things like how it makes people itch and nauseous. Obviously I don't want any of that and I also don't want it if it's not good for the baby.
Avatar f tn The past 2 or so years I feel it's been bad enough to where I do 'get on' with life but never find myself truly happy with small things in life that I used to find joy in. Recently I was prescribed 5mg oxycodone for a kidney stone, I took the medication as needed, which was one pill every 4-6 hours or as needed. I never abused the medication. I never took multiple pills looking for a "high". What I did notice was that while taking 5mg's 2-3 times per day, I felt happy.
