methadone 50mgs. every am. the dr. put me back on oxycontin 20 mgs twice a day and i'm worried because i have been told that they have changed oxycontin and oxycodone and put naltrexone in them which with my methadone will cause me to go through withdrawls. yes, i am honest with my dr and he knows i am on methadone. when i got this new oxy's filled the color was the same but instead of having oc 20 they have op20 on them and i don't want to die! will someone please tell me why or if i was given the wrong rx. i was told that there are no generic's for oxycontin .

They did not add an opiate blocker to the new formula oxycontin OP. What they did do is make it so you can't crush it into solution and inject.
Hope this helps,
