Interesting . . .

I wonder what the price will be on this new formulation? The cost of Purdue's new anti abuse form. is so high that it has non a users still seeking IR pills due to the cost. I wonder if the DEA ever takes that into consideration?

anti abuse opioids

Tried OP. Apparently proper OC is now impossible to get in the US so I doubt that "Oxycontin" will be selling much at all and that the vast majority will have switched to IR. Those OP 80mg felt aroind half stated strength; still lasyed only 6-7 hours; and caused aeful gastrointestinal side effects. I have heard of people buying OC from European IOPs at $40 per 80mg, crazy when a box of 30 costs no more at a pharmacy than €55 (Italy).& half that in Romania - which is where most of the silly-priced pills come from.
Can anybody tell me about anti abuse oxymorphone, a drug we do not get but which I have been eager to try, my oxycodone tolerance being so high. Is it limitrd to Opana brand? I hear that Teva and Roxane both produce far superior oxymorphone than Opana - I am trying to find onstant release 10mg tablets but would not refuse 40mg ER so long as they were not 'anti abuse' formulations.
I have tried some Covidien/Mallinckrodt opioids in the past and found them just fine and very cheap (for the US). Why are there so many quality complaints dotted around this site concerning Mallinckrodt products?

I agree . . .

I've never had a complaint with mall is but this board sure seems full of them. Doesn't Roxi still make 10 mg Oxy IR?

I have been taking generic

I have been taking generic oxymorphone for several months now - it works SO much better than OC or MSContin for me!  I am only taking 15 mg 2x/day, and I don't think that this formulation is very tamper resistant from what I've read, though obviously I've never tried!  Mine is made by Actavis.  It is a very steady pain med, it works for about 9-10 hours, which is a bit longer than what the 10 mg worked for me, it was closer to 8.  It's hard to say because I also take generic Percocet up to 4x/d, but I would say that at it's peak I get about 30-40% pain reduction and no major ups and downs with it.

Sounds familiar . . .

I don't react well to ER or LA meds either. they give me a roller coaster ride like crazy. Since I have long term terminal cancer ( going on seven years now) my oncologist is willing to let me experiment with the various analgesics out there, opiates and otherwise. As far as opiates go I've been on Fentora and oxycodoneIR for 21/2 years now and haven't changed my dosage in all that time so I guess I'll stick with that. For neural pain, I can't seem to find anything better than a combo of Cymbalta And Abilify. like you,my doses last longer than for most people . . . Fentora lasts most people 1/2 hr tops while I get a full 2 hrs. I even take OxyIR as an ER drug . . . go figure. If it works for you, stick with it . . . Q
