Oxycontin cost per pill

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycontin cost per pill


Avatar n tn As many of you already know I quit using Oxycontin Friday March 9th. Life has become much different during these past few weeks. I find myself sad and depressed one minute and on top of the world the next. I have been going to NA meetings on and off. I really havent had a good experience with the program. I call my sponcer and he doesn't return my calls. That hurts because I thought that NA was there to provide unconditional support. I get temted to use on a daily basis.
Avatar n tn that was over 3 years ago..I was as high as 200 mg per day just using as a pill(never crushed or snorted) I liked these better as they did not give me a high like the percs. I didn't understand why people got a high from them. Well B4 Christmas I decided I wanted to taper down and get my life back. It is now Sept and I down to 40-50mg per day. It has been a rough road but now my doc says that's it....no more. I am trying acupucture and 3 treatments 170.00 later I do not feel much different.
Avatar n tn As I am driving down the rode I look at other people and wonder how they can possibly leave their houses without a pill to keep them going. I have to get through this for my familys sake. I have tapered off from 120mg a day to 60mg a day for a week then to 40 mg a day for a week. This week I had 20mg on Monday and Tuesday 10mg Wednesday and 5mg today. I am now totally out. I have 1 and 1/2 meth that someone gave me if I needed them. So far I have not had to resort to those.
Avatar n tn I took my last dose of OxyContin almost 10 days ago. I was prescribed it for Extreem back and neck pain due to an MVA. I started out 80mg 2x day. Then went to 60mg 2x a day. Then the last time I saw my doc I told him to decrease again to 40mg 2x A day. Well stupid me went through the percsription WAY TOO FAST. I went through a months worth in TWO WEEKS! I was in so much pain at the time I did not care about the consequenses. Anyway......
Avatar n tn I am presently taking 200 mgs of oxycontin and 90 mgs of xycodone,(5 mg tabs),per day.I have started taking 40 mgs less per day of oxycontin and 8 tabs less of the oxycodone per day. Tomorrow I'll cut down another 20 mgs of oxycontin and the same for the oxycodone.I'm taking each reduced dose for 1 week before reducing it again.I'm hoping to asertain the minimum amount of medication that will comfortably control my back pain.

Avatar n tn Tapering is actually more difficult with oxycontin because, as the prior post says, if you break the pill in order to reduce dosage you will cause it to increase the amount hitting your system at one time (since it will not be time released).
Avatar n tn Where did you get your supply from? How much money did you spend? Oxy cost about $1.00 per 10 mg, $10.00 per 100mg, and $80.00 per 800 mg if you buy it at a pharmacy. And most insurance plans will only allow/pay for 60 tablets a month. Street value is in the neighborhood of $1.00 per 1 mg, $10.00 per 10mg, $100.00 per 100mg, and a whopping $800.00 for 800mg. I believe your story might scare the hell out of some people who are just starting on OXY. Please post one of your days back then.
Avatar n tn Usually, we don't support these types of requests. However, Oxycontin addiction has become so widespread and devastating, that we feel compelled to help get the word out in any way we can. Med Help International has checked the credentials of the following reporter and we believe she is sincere. However, as always, please be very careful when giving out any personal information.
Avatar f tn then see doctor montly at $75 a month. Plus required counseling and prescription costs. I didnt realize finding help would cost so much and be complicated to start. I have no idea how I can go to work while in whithdrawal and I cant get off work..seems so hard to start this. I can't lose my job..have to keep up the act but am running out of the energy to continue it. I'm a single mom with a toddler and 2 teenagers that need me and deserve so much more from me.
Avatar n tn Kinda of scary thinking of life independant from my husband but that was something he said I may need to consider(WOW). Well today there was a major blow up. He says he's down to one pill per day(don't know if he meant oxy or percs) cause he was angry and we were not in a good place to be having this discussion. I know call these suprise attacks cause I never see them coming. You guys keep praying for me and as always I look forward to hearing what you think.
Avatar n tn I am going in for Detox this Friday for Oxycontin addiction. I have read many many messages here from people addicted to painkillers & people recovering from that addiction. I have been snorting 240-360mg of Oxy per day for about 1 & 1/2 years now. I told my family doctor about my abuse & he was very supportive & referred me to a center that specializes in drug addiction.
1064998 tn?1254942645 I'd been using oOxycontin up to 300 mg a day for about 2 years and while on the trip i thought it would be ok to break my 40 mg pills into 4ths and take them because i was running out with no chance of refill before the trip. The WD started and the whole 4ths of a pill thing was out the window.
Avatar n tn After time it does not work so well and the dose went up I was as high as 320-400mg per day thats equivilent to 80 percacet! My reumatologist finally came up with this new drug called Enbrel but cost $1600 per month. My benifits finally agreed to cover it. Now I needed to get of the oxy. Well I was successful but it took about 3 months. My docs approace was different he put me on a 100mcg Fentanal patch 5 times then down to 75 mcg 5 times then 50mcg, and finally 20 mcg patches 5-10 times.
Avatar m tn I've been taking oxycontin for 2 years now. It was prescribed for chronic pain due to degenerative joint disease. I've had one hip replaced and suffer with bone spurs and various other little hurdles !! Addiction to Oxycontin has taken me from a husband, father, provider making a great living in my field to almost, at present, having lost everything except my family. I am broke due to spending every available dime on the drug.
Avatar n tn Before then,I was taking Vicodin regularly for 3 years. My dosage for Oxycontin started at 80 mg. per day to 320 mg. per day at the end. My wife started to share my medicine about a year ago.She did this to save our marriage. In the end, she was taking 80 mg. per day.I have been wanting to get off these medicines for the entire time I was taking them, but I was prescribed them from a doctor and he made it seem like it was ok.
Avatar m tn I've been abusing Oxycontin 20's for about 6 months now but the well ran dry 3 days ago. I was taking 2 to 3 per day and biting them in half to bypass the time release. I haven't had any in almost a full 72 hours and so far there's been virtually no symptoms whatsoever. I'm not substituting anything to take the edge off with the exception of one 350mg "Soma" taken before bed to help with the potential insomnia.

1331804 tn?1336870958 Lastly, I have read a lot about the Oxycontin OP not being as potent as the old formula such that a lot of folks have experienced increased pain after switching from the old Oxycontin to the new Oxycontin OP. But I am wondering if the Oxycontin OP will still be better than the morphine. I am hoping someone has gone through this switch and can tell me if their pain got better or worse. Otherwise, I guess I won't know until I get to that road.

Avatar m tn so I started back up taking 120mgs of oxycontin per day.... I actually cut my 60 pills up and tried to taper down without my doctors help and I have been having some major withdrawals... I pretty much sleep all the time and have the chills... actually I am about I am three to four days of being totally off the meds.... I still have 10mgs of valium and every time I take those they pretty much make me go to sleep... I have zero energy.... The worst part about all of this is that my best friends.
522415 tn?1242941355 It seems women's brains are more receptive to Kappa opiods than other opiods like the oxy's or hydrocodones. It comes in a patch, nasal spray and a pill. Only the pill is what we would use. Simply ask your Dr. Some drs. do not prescribe certain drugs because they are not certified to do so. They don't tell us this. Morphine is a level 4 drug. A GP does not have a license to prescribe level 4 drugs. Sometimes they use the strong arm method instead of explaining their limitations.
Avatar f tn Most people addicted to oxycodone in my practice were taking around 200-300 mg per day. The cost of oxycodone 'on the street', at least in my part of the country, is around a buck per mg-- so a 'habit' of 350 mg would cost a 'street user' about $300 bucks per day-- although most people taking illicit prescription opioids are either selling them as well, or getting them paid for by their health insurer.
Avatar n tn when i started snorting oxycontin i was payn 50.00 for ONE 80mg pill..and when the demand was high and oxycontin was scarce i actualy paid 70.00 per 80mg pill! i did that for a year til finding a friend who got 80mg oxycontins and eventualy was only payn 20.00 per 80mg pill..just l00kn back on that disgusts me..its embarressing. but also crazy how a LITTLE pill can have so much power...
Avatar f tn anyone familiar or heard, know, experienced taking subutex while pregnant? i am now on 1mg per day and there is limited studies. please help.
Avatar n tn I just started suboxone wednesday ( i know alot of people on the forums disagree with using it) but I was taking about 15/20 pills a day ranging from oxycontin,percocet,tramadol,and hydrocodone..The Suboxone has been a LIFE SAVER so far..Im not worried about withdrawal and detoxing right now because I feel that if I can go a year or so without taking my DOC then the withdrawal will be worth it b/c if i can go that long without DOC then i should be pretty well recovered..
Avatar m tn Still spending about $200 a month though, my mom takes 4 from me per day. They are .60 cents per pill, at my cost. Spending $360.00 a month was killing me. Well things are getting better for me.
