Re: Generic Oxycodone - patient assistance ?

Hi Ken...
Endo is one of the drug companies that make a generic Oxycodone. I don't know if they offer patient assistance, but you can research them by going to http://www.endo.com/. That should tell you what you're looking for as far as assistance.

Re: Generic Oxycodone - patient assistance ?

Hey Ken, Generic OxyContin is presently being Marketed by TEVA, at the end of the first 6 months of exclusive marketing that Endo sold to Teva, Endo will begin marketing their Oxy CR or SR. Selling first rights of production to TEVA was Endo's way to recoup their legal expenses after a long fight with Purdue.

As far as plain oxycodone or Roxicodone, Name brand is made by AAI pharma
generic by Mallinckrodt pharma
and Amide pharma
The needy meds web site can give you contact info and some list the retrictions, household income, lack of script insurance etc. The link to needy meds is at the top of the page in the post for patients needing assistance with their meds.
Good luck.

PS. I starting using the Amide pharma 30mg tablets on friday, Compaction rate, duration and strength seems fine and pill splitters don't crush the tiny tablets. Perfect cut everytime, as long as the blade stays sharp.
Hope this helped, Dave

Re: Generic Oxycodone - patient assistance ?

HEy Bob, Sorry tohear about the cord compression, With the symptoms you really should be seen asap. It's not really a risk of being paralyzed but more of an issue of how long it will take to recover the longer it goes untreated. I've always said if there is an obvious preroblem they can pinpoint, mainly compression, stenosis etc, you have pretty good odds of a succesfully relieving the neruo paroblem. If it was simply causing pain in your neck the outcome to simply reduce pain usually aren't quite as succesful/

If your in Ralliegh you in the rsear ch triangle and have some of the betst Neuro in the the area. If I were to havbe another surgery I would travel down dram where my brother is and ee a doc at Duke or UNC chappel hill.
know it's rough fdacing surgery and the waiting game between diagnostics and decisions. Didrthey say the compressionis ocuring into the thecal sac or actually impinging the dspinal cord. You do have a lot of choices. At that level They can do a bone on bone fsfuion ehwhere they simply cean up and totally remve the discs.

The evertabrea are small so the loss of a couple mm doesn't usually cause stretching of berve roots stenosis or other impingments. This is how they fid my dads cervical fusion,which is just one of the emthods of cervical fusion. They move the trachia and vocal cords aside to reach the disc, They roughen the bones and can allow bone to rest on bone and the pressure created by the weight of your head is enough to cause the bones to fuse, They also have bio material they can add to help in bone growgh to the area they want fused. I say fused because the discs are so small that removing them seem to be the better eway to go.

THere are ceratainly other methods to treat the same probems, articficial dics, discectomes and articificaial nucleas, some things I hadn;t seen befor or the standard donar bone and cages or screww in rods. to hold things in lace as the fusion grows. Igf your a smoker, you have to stop, It pretty much cuts the odds in half if yu find a surgeon that will use a smoker. But with *****vious problem and the possib;e negative consequences things should move a little faster. many surgeons say they want you smoke free for 3 months. It actually atkeas about 48 hours for nicotine to clear from your system, but I guess the 3 month thing is to prove you have quit and won't start right back up after you get home./ Hard as it is, and I hopefully smoked my last cigerreste last nigh I undertsnad wha a problem it can be. But if somethings go wrong, yo don't want o look back and say I wish I had quit smoking, asuming your smoker.LOL

Nsaids also inhiut bone fusion but I'm sure tyopur suregeon will go obver what he thinks the best ways to prepair for surgery are.

I actually did 2 months of PT prior to may last fusion so I went in as strong and as strong as posssibl;e and hopeing for the best outcome. Quiting while in the hopital is easy, It's once you get home, stuck ina neck brace with little to do sis when the cravings seem to hit. But the good news is I do know folks that have had succcesfull cervicle fusions.

Sorry abou tht ebad news bt maybe it's a good thing and willprvide more relief than some pill can when you have an obvious physiclological problem that can be corrected.
Take care and keep us posted. Hound the docs anmd MR facilyrty to speed things up, get on the cancelation list and hopefully you won't have to make any drastic med changes pre op that would make it harder for a surgen to manage posot op pain.

My dad recovered qute quickly and with all 3 surgeries I woke with the radiclulopothy,foot drop and los of reflexes were noticed imedietel althugh my back hurt like a mother. Imedieate relif is certainly better than the long road of PM management.

I hadn't heard of Amide before but they do seem to make a very equal product whe it comes to generic Roxi. I'm hesitiant to try any Mallinckrodt pharma product. The last time I went through withrawal from metrhadose I called and wrote the FDA, they forwarded my complaint to mallinckrodt and there response was we follow the highest standards in all our phamcuetical lines. However it didn't eacactly put my mind at ease to know the FDA just turns the complaints over to themanufactuer to police itself. Kinda like the police, policing themselves. The obvious need for a seperate and impartion nvestigation is obvious in the police scenario, why it wouldn't be protocal in the FDA process is beyond me.

Good luck and hopefully you will find a great doc at duke or UNc and have a great outcome and fast recovery.
Take care and keep us posted. Dave
