oxycontin pills imprint should read 80mg on one side and OC on the other. but my pills show 80mg / OP. i am afraid to take them.
The company that makes Oxycontin, Purdue, changed the chemical makeup due to people who have been abusing them by crushing them to snort, smoke of inject them. That's all the change was suppose to do, but I have been taking all strenghts of Oxycontin for years & now they aren't as strong, don't aways dissolve completely & aren't extended release any longer. I don't know of anything pill wise that is as strong as Oxycontin & don't know what I'm going to do.
You shouldn't have anything to be afraid of, it's still the same company, but they sure don't take away the pain like they use to.
