Re: No more Generic Oxycontin?
After reporting to FDA and to Purdue Labs two things happened to bring Purdue further shame.
1- I was sent a self addressed mailer, and told to send a sample of my Oxycontin OP to Purdue for study. This is crazy, since they already have my pharmacy lot # and should have gotten this from the pharmacy! As it stands, this is a 31 day month, and I get 30 days worth of meds a month. I will allready be 1 day shy on my meds, due to the extra day, and Purdue cares so little about pain that they have now made me 1 1/2 days at months end without meds!!!
SO... I went online to whine about this to FDA and my congressman..next
2- On the FDA website, I read the following recent discovery:
"Propoxyphene: Withdrawal - Risk of Cardiac Toxicity New data shows that Propoxyphene and Propoxyphene-containing products can cause serious toxicity to the heart, even when used at therapeutic doses. Posted 11/19/2010"
This was alarming because in the varying dosages of Oxy contin OP there is hydroxypropyl cellulose and 2 other Propoxyphene related products.
I have sent this documentation to the FDA, Purdue, and to my congressman.
I invite you all to do the same.
