Specifically, what is the misinformation that you are speaking of.

Mostly that of ginjef. Sorry

Mostly that of ginjef. Sorry if I offended anyone as that was not my intention. I just wanted to put a few things straight. I also did not mean to sound conceted or like a know it all as I obviously do not and to gtrplyr, none of the "appaling misinformation" was directed at you. You are one of the users of this site I respect and agree with most of the time. Sorry to cause any problems. It was one post I rad that was so full of misinformation I was actually appalled! I couldnt beleive someone could make so many mistakes while writing one post. Sorry and not to offend ayone else.

No offense taken.

i figured that you were probably reffering to the "percocettes". but i was just curious if there was anything else which i might have missed.

you, as well as everyone else have every right to express your opinion.

No offense taken here

No offense taken here either.  I've talked to you before, JeckPDX, so I kind of had a feeling it might not be directed at me but wanted to make sure.  Besides, those new oxycodone/apap combinations need a little bit of run since not many people know of them.  I know I didn't until I checked the list again.

Yeah, I had totally

Yeah, I had totally forgotten about magnacet. Interesting combonation. I dont see it being particularly successful as its a brand made by a manufacturer of generics and I see the percocet generics getting the lions share of the market due to their wider knowledge and availability and cheaper (generic) pricing. Plus I'd rather have a 10/325 generic percocet than a 10/400 magnacet. Its kind of like zydone and hydrocodone/apap products. i know it exists but have never seen it or know anyone to be prescribed it and I doubt my dr. would know what it was if I asked for zydone or magnacet! How do some of these mfgs. survive that I see in the common imprints for opiates section. I've never even seen/heard of half of them and I've seen a lot of pain pills. Anyone, have a good evening everyone.

I've been on Roxicodone for 3 yrs

I've been on Roxicodone for 3 years...Roxicodone is the brand name and Oxycodone HCL is the generic..Amide is the manuf. of this generic....any other generics do not provide pain relief, JMO.  The Roxy's nor the generic do not contain tylenol, aspirin, nor acem.  Just pure oxy, immediate release.  These work wonderful for me....not much of a tolerance issue either.  Was on the 15mg for 3 years before having to move up to the 30mg.  Be very careful with these...do not take more than you are prescribed.  If you do, you will continue to need more and more.  If taken as prescribed, they work wonderful. 

Before having insurance, I paid cash.  The generics were about $0.75/pill.  The brands were about $ 1.25/pill.  They are not cheap, but well worth it!!!

Oxy preference

Well I have use Roxicodone , which is without tylenol and I have had the Endocet and many others...

If I me personally had to pick one it would be the Endocet 10/650

for pain....If the 325  is enough then the 10/325 is fine, but this always worked the best as a stand alone pill.  Got to have the Tylenol

 

YMMV

Generic Oxycontin

This is my 1st post so I hope I am using this correctly. I currently am on 3-40mg Onycontin generics and 30mg IR oxycodone generics for breakthrough pain daily. I was told that the generics of Oxycontin have stopped being sold here in the states by my pharmacist. As of last month I did manage to get my prescription filled but was told I might have to purchase the brand name from now on. I do have insurance but they only pick up 50% of any brand names. Is there anyone else who seems to have this problem? I will find out next week if I can purchase the generics through another pharmacy.Hopefully I can. Thankx

hello there and welcome to

hello there and welcome to the site.

while your pharmacists is correct that they are going to stop making most generic oxycontin, the makers of oxycontin (purdue pharma) are still going to produce an approved generic. this approved generic is produced by them and should be a perfect fit (per your doctors descretion) for patients like you that only have partial Rx coverage.

here is a link to some information from purdue who makes the brand oxycontin and additionally, will be the pharm co who approves certain generics.
