I read somewhere that Oxy is being taken off the market. I hate being the
bearer of false news. Does anybody know?

I believe the company that was producing generic Oxycontin was doing it w/o the proper clearance or licenses or whatever. Not exactly sure what the situation was. But essentially the result was that for at least the foreseeable future only brand name Oxycontin (read $$$) will be available for those who take that medication. I think there were a few threads about this several pages back. If you do a search on the site you should be able to find them. An internet search would probably get you the information too.

Ry; I saw that when I did a Google search. Wasn't that like last year when they took it off the market?

I don't take Oxy. I used to. Coming off it was so dreadful that I will never
touch it again. I mainly was just curious and wanted to post a potential problem
for others.

I'mon Oxycodone for the pain...and I am hoping that doc puts me on something else for the B/T pain. Percocets aren't working as well as I would like them to.

Scarred,
Usually then they should be trying an extended release med. like oxycontin and then using percocet for BT pain. Percocet is oxycodone. Or are you on oxycontin?

And yes the generic oxycontin was taken off the market because of a patent suit. The drug company (I think it was Purdue in this case) that develops any medication usually holds a patent protection for a certain number of years. When that expires, then others can make generic forms.

My cousin (the pharmacist) just told me the patent will soon expire on effexor ER, so then there should be generics available on that.

Oxycodone for the BT pain and Kadian for the extended release meds. Kadian is a extended release morphine based pain med that seems to help alot. Of course the Percocet isn't working as well for the BT pain as I would like it to but it does take the pain down maybe a notch

Tom, it's funny that you mentioned that valium caused you to wake up angry.My Dr. tried me on them about six years ago to relax my nerves and help me sleep.After about a two week trial, I found that half the time I would wake up and go into an almost rage for very little reason.If nothing happened to anger me within the first hour or so then I would be my usual mellow self for the rest of the day. Needless to say, the Dr. then prescribed me Xanex and they have worked well and without the near gasket blow-outs the next day.Valium is one drug that really scares me for the way it makes me behave.........Take care.............Rod

I'm going to have to find out what milligrams of Methadone they have taken off
the market. I'm always kinda scared that certain manufacturers are going to
go out of business leaving me and/or my friends in the lurch. Anyone for saving up
and stockpiling for disasters in the future? It's not easy to do. That's for sure.

I haven't been able to read the Ticket To Paradise thread lately. I can dabble my toe
in the left coast and didn't know there was water anywhere else.

Hi All,

Does the oxycontin make anyone feel sick??

I have been going to a different pain management ane we were trying oxy's and with the breakthru and also the opna er, Both meds made me sick as can be. the worked ok, but they just werent worth it feeling so dizzy and sick when you stand up. I have been taking diluadid for more than 3 years, it workd pretty good but has a short life. I just went back to dilaudid and am trying to think about methadone.

Anyone ever have tried it??

                                thanks for any info,

           Have A Pain Free Day!!!!

Sorry crps I have no idea. I was on Oxy for only a few days when I developed an allergic reaction to the medication and had to be taken off of it. Real bad rash and hives with much itching.

hugs
