I was worried about this and asked my Doctor and Pharmacist. Most of the pill mills operate in house pharmacies and they require that you fill there so Florida law will require they only give 72 hours worth of meds. This will be effective in October.
Avatar n tn I dealt with recurring carotid pain for years before discovering that in my case it was actually a form of migraine. If I catch it in the first couple of minutes, two Excedrin may work. If I wait too long, the Excedrin won't work. Then a single dose of Imitrex eliminates it within an hour. It is miraculous!
210982 tn?1280987495 Hi Audrea, Here in Florida it is impossible to get any of the oxycodone 5mg, 15mg, or 30mg. There are other forms of oxycodone but they of course contain tylenol. I know that ethex the other company that was making the oxycodone IR is under FDA investigation and the FDA has stopped all manufacturing. the other company Malinkroft is so backed up they can't keep up. I certainly hope they can increase manufacturing so we can get the medications we need.
Avatar f tn I am due to have my prescription filled on April 2 so I started calling around my neighborhood pharmacies in Sunrise Florida, but no body has it in stock. Can someone please help me?
Avatar f tn The new PM, "Pill Mill" Laws passed on Friday. In general it shouldn't affect me as my doctor is one of the qualified specialties that can own a pain clinic and he has undergone neccessary training. One way it may affect me, though, is that there will be more people using pharmacies for oxycodone, yet no lift on the controlled amount of oxycodone that the pharmacies recieve.
Avatar f tn They even have different bottles at the register so you can pick Ethex, Mallinkroft, etc. Here in Florida there was a shortage (I think it was all over) a while back because one or two of the major manufacturers stopped making them. I was on subs at the time so it didn't really affect me. Maybe someone else has better info.
356518 tn?1322267242 The oxycodone 30mg here in Florida is so popular. Alot of the ones that come in from out of state people who come to the "pill mills" and this is why there is a shortage. My Doctor made the comment that Florida is like McDonald's 10 billion sold, referring to oxycodone. The DEA shut down a couple clinics in Jacksonville on Thursday and I can only hope they will get to the many, many others.

356518 tn?1322267242 The test may help find what is going on. I do know there is another shortage of oxycodone 30mg going on again. I normally pay 90 cents a piece and this month they were 2.50 a piece! This due to the government's not wanting the companies to manufacture as much according to the owner of the pharmacy! It is just ridiculous! I am paying this much for meds that I can't keep down.
Avatar f tn It's really bad in Florida, still. Not only was there an initial shock in pharmacies refusing to fill legitimate prescriptions this year - wow, was I treated like a criminal - I had to go to a pharmacy I'd used 15 years ago, who kindly filled my prescriptions monthly since January of this year, always making certain to have mine in stock... Until this last month. The DEA hit him. Hard. Told him he could not fill prescriptions for folks who lived outside the city limits of his store.
Avatar n tn Your best bet is an in-house rehab where they will know how to best handle the physical and mental aspects of coming down from oxycodone. Tapering? Unless you're one in a million, forget it. If you're head of a large professional organization, you no doubt have options most of the rest of us don't. Take advantage of that great insurance and do it right. Best of luck to you.

Avatar n tn --speaking of those goddamn mostly thigh cramps that seem to love to show up in the middle of the night, have that hot bath or Jacuzzi at the ready. Don't hesitate to spend the majority of the week in that hot water if that's what it takes to get you through it. You may be wrinkled, but you'll have your sanity. Don't underestimate what the hot baths can do to relieve the withdrawal discomfort. They really work.
Avatar n tn I'm also in my fifties and am trying desperately to ween myself of T3's. What I understand is that the atasol has a very limited amount of codeine in it. You're probably suffering more from mental and emotional withdrawel than physical but that doesn't lessen the problem, does it? I'm searching myself for a detox centre in my area but we have very limited resourses. Have you tried cutting the amount you use down on a daily basis and keeping a record? This is the route I'm taking.
Avatar n tn They are very easy to make and contain every food group and has a lot of calcium and protein in them. Use just use Pillsbury crescent rounds in the bottom of a muffin tin then fill with eggs, cheese, milk, veggies and a meat all whisked together. My favorite is cheddar cheese, red onion and no nitrate bacon (crispier and healthier). For 12 quiches, you use 5 eggs, 1 cup whole milk/half and half, 1 cup cheese, the cooked meat if you want (i.e.
