Hey pikes peak,
The dosage of oxycontin is generally based on the opoid tolerance of the individual. The 300 tablets of oxycontin would be a total of 10 a day which would be 300 mgs a day. The general maximum dose of oxycontin extended release is two a day or a total of 160 mgs. So they are taking a high dose of oxycontin. Have they been on opiates for a long time? Is the doctor prescribing 10 a day? I would seriously doubt it especially since it is extended release.
Hope this helps,
That would make no sense. If they really need that much, it would make much more sense to give them 150 60mg pills. Theres no need to be taking 10 ER pills in a day, a normal doctor would just up the dosage per pill so you wouldnt be taking pills all day long, plus would cost less and certainly would look less suspicious to the pharmacy and DEA.
