I can't use oxycondone any more. They no longer make it. its coming off the market.
You're right about morphine. A day ago I couldn't breath and had very shallow breathing so I'm not taking it anymore either. Right now I'm taking more of the oxycontin to make up for it.
Ok i am confused, i called my pharm and 2 others and they said they have not heard that and they have them, so i dont understand how ur dr can say they arent making oxycodone anymore when noone else knows. maybe he doesnt want to give it anymore ,i take oxy 30 ir, so i was worried that is why i called the pharm, did u ask your phram if they are taking all oxcondone off the shelfs? one of the pharm i called said they didnt know cause they never carrried the 15 but the rest did, all had the 30mg
Ask them about Percacet - that is oxycodone with a small amount of acetaminophen IThlenol) added - that would be the most sensible substitute if plain IR Oxycodone is no longer avaliable.
You can get it in tabs containing 10mg oxycodone and 325mg of Acetaminophen.... 1 1/2 of these would give you your 15mg of oxycodone plus the equivalent of 1 extra strength Tylenol, a relatively insignificant dose.
I am in Adelaide, South Australia.... have you visited down under>
I live in ky all3 pharm i called had 30 and two had the 15 they also said that oxycondone would not go away may be just hard tgo find, i go to same pharm that makes sure they have mine every month,. So hopefully u can just tell the dr they r still here and get back on that dose or maybe the 30.
