It has Naxolone added to it to stop you getting constipated and is called Targinact.

Hi Dillwynia, naloxone (link provided) is an opiate blocker. The constipation is a normal side effect of most opiates. The reformulated oxycontin has new compounds that prevent it from being injected, abused. I'll have to check out the Targinact as that would be great for this nasty side effect of most opiates. Many people prescribed the new oxycontin are having trouble with it controlling pain and also having gastrointestinal problems. How is it controlling your pain? I hope it's working well for you and continue to have pain free days!
