I have been taking the 80 OC over 9 years and been forced to used the 80 OP about 8 months now and in my opinion, The OP does not work the same as the OC, it has it's own stack of negitive side effects and after talking to my pain management Dr. about this, I do not hold this opinion alone. Also, There is not a choice of what you can get from your pharmacy as they do not have a choice as well. This is it, Due to dopeheads abusing this medication we're just going to have to suffer the side effects of headachs, sick stomach, muscle spasms and a bloated stomach feeling caused by the OP. Good luck to you.
