I got my rx filled and there were two different pills. I take 30mgs I was told by the pharmacy that I got pills from two different manufacturers, they are large pills and then I also got the small ones. Anyway I noticed a difference in pain relief and side effects. I think they are using a similiar formula perdue used in the new oxycontin. I am having difficulty thinking I am not getting any pain relief I cannot even continue to give more detail right now due to the pain. Anyone have any input.
Has anyone noticed a change in ms contin?

update, I saw my doctor today and told him I do not want to take anymore morphine. I told him it makes me feel awful , actually I said it bums me out.
he is great I can talk to him freely. I am trying lyrica and the oxir's. I pray that this will be the answer to my prayers. I am only 49 and I want my life back, at leat some of it. I could never work again but I would like a bit of a social life. I guess I will be going to the Lyrica support group. Good luck to all of you who suffer from pain, thanks for your help
ksrock2, im on percocet 10/325 for pain management, and actually in a taper process to once and for all get off the pain medication. but i do realize that at times when i pick up my prescription, its almost as if its nothing but a sugar pill. i wonder sometimes also about manufactur malfunctions. some i heard the correct mg of medication is actually not administered in the pills like it suppose to. id try and call the pharmacy and talk to them or talk to your dr. but i just wanna say, if you ever plan to get off opiates, its pure hell, so you may want to try and cut back. hope i could help some
I take oxycodone, & yes to answer your question, I firmly believe different brands make a difference. I always end up with the ones from Qualitest, & ended up adding tylenol for them to kick in for the pain. Then last time I had mine filled the same thing happened to me. I thought uh oh! I waited til the end of the month to take the different one made by Mallinkrodt, but found out they worked better than the Qualitest brand. Now I ask for it, but no one can seem to get it for me.Also found out a long time ago that CVS is about the only store that will order or try to the brand of what works best for you. Guess they are just not Big Box enough yet like Walgreens is. I felt bad because when my pharmatist ordered a specific brand & they didn't have it they didn't send him any oxycodone at all! So I may have messed it up for others. He is trying to order two brands now. Just my thoughts...
