    Any issues with Oxycontin 80mg or Oxycodone 30mg???

    Hi All.....
    I think alot of us are starting to panic about if we are going to be able to get our meds with all the backorders and recalls. Has anyone heard if the Oxycontin 80mg or oxycodone 30mg's are having problems??? My next fill is due on a Friday and the last thing I need is to pick up my scripts only to find that i'm going to be stuck without anything over the weekend. I'm worried, so if anyone has any information to share that would put many of us at ease.

    thanks so much
    Lisa

    Re: Any issues with Oxycontin 80mg or Oxycodone 30mg???

    Yesterday I tried to get my oxycodone 30mg filled and I swear I went to at least 10 pharmacies and no one had them. I went to one pharmacy and they had 36 oxycodone 30mg but my script was written for 45. After no place had them I went back to the one pharmacy that had them and told her I would just have to get shorted because no one else had them...well while I was there she found another whole bottle of the oxycodone 30mg so luckily for me I got all of my medication but I wasrunning around like crazy trying to find these pills!

    Oh and I should add that I did not have any trouble at all trying to fill my rx for Oxycontin.

    There is no shortage of OC....Purdue Pharma has good availability of all presentations.

    However, the IR shortage is real, and causing mad chaos. Ethex has pulled all their presentations (every strength). Actavis has had issues as well. Consequently, the other manufacturers can't fill the void due to excessive demand.

    Additionally, Ethex is a major player in the generic market...Many chains have large agreements with them for a significant part of their business. Consequently, you just don't replace these vendors over night, especially when the competition is already at near capacity.

    Best of luck to everyone.

    Regards,

    Ex
