No they are not the same Lertus I just read had diclofenac and codiene in it!! I would talk to your doctor about this for u might go through withdrawals from the oxcontin, I am no doctor, but this is my opinion, that he should taper u down from the oxycontin, and then put u on the other medication, like I said am no doctor so I don't no if he can wein u while taking the Lertus, this is something that u will have to talk with your doctor about, also there are alot more people on this sight more knowledgeable then me and might beable to give u more advice... hope this helped

I have been through the cycle of being on pain meds and new drs its not fun! As a Dr he/she should know that if u have been on the oxy for an extended period of time that you need some sort of opiate to not be sick and have severe WD or put u on some kind of other meds specifically for opiate WD like suboxone or subutex. You def need to talk to the Dr about this because without help and no oxy u are gonna get very sick!!
