Are they going to stop making Non-Generic Oxycontins?

Whether or not this is happening, do you believe that it is a good idea for drug companies to make oxycontins so that users can't abuse them as easily

Hi, I was recently told by a few people that they are going to stop making name brand oxycontins due to the fact that they are too easy for addicts to be able to inject.  Supposedly they are taking them off of the shelves this month and all that will be available are a new form of grneric ones that users are unable to cook down so that they can inject them.  Is this true or has anybody else heard anything like this?

   Hello Blue!

   Welcome to the CP forum!

     To answer your question....I did see a post just a few days ago about this....and read that the new med will have an OP stamped on it instead of the OC......and is for the reasons you stated.

    Do you suffer from Chronic Pain? Can you tell us a little more about yourself?

   I'm sure there will be a member here who can answer your question better. I used to take Oxycontin, but no longer need them at this time.

    Take care,

hey BLUE777, i was the one who posted about the OP imprint inStead of the OC imprint. without even knowing what the imprint was i asked the pharmacist [who i have a good relationship with] since they added more dosage strenghts [i got the 60mg as a replacement for MScontin 100mg due to morphine tolerance] if they had a generic equivilant for the new ones. he told me that they had re-formulated the brand and ther were no generics yet.[i did not catch all of what he said clearly since it was through the drive-through intercom]. from what i can tell, eventhough it's been a long time since i have taken oxycontin, it seems to be a bit different in the initial release time. it takes longer to get going. i do not think they should change a effective pain drug because it might end up in a addicts hands, i think they should make sure people who are perscribed the drug are not diverting it by random med checks or a established trust between doctor and patient. the pain-patient should not get the short end of the stick because dummies inject or snort it. i have recently learned there is a website that gives instructions and tips for illict use.
