I understand your concern. I am on the same combination that you are taking. The thought of being shorted my bt meds is frightening. If I were you I'd call your pharmacist. They are going to know more about the supply side of the issue than the doc will. Also, I don't know who you get your meds from but I use a small, local pharmacy where I know the gals who work the counter and the owner/pharmacist also. I used to do the chain pharmacy and gave that up a long time ago. It was nothing bur problems...one after another! You might look around for someone who's NOT a chain store. BUT>>> if you do change make sure to tell your doc that you are switching and will stay with the new one. Otherwise red flags will pop up because it may look like you are trying to get pain meds at multiple locations...even tho you're not.
It's possible you could get morphine for a b/t medication. It's cheap and very easy to get. The conversion from oxycodone to morphine is about 50% higher. So, if you were taking 100 mg of oxy you would need 150 mg of mophine to get the same pain relief. It would stop the withdrawal you'd have if you had to go without. Just some thoughts...
