There are quite a few extended release medications. Mscontin, opana, fentanyl patch, exalgo, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some. Your pain dr would know what to prescribe for you.
As far as equivalent? I'd say none, as far as the one that's most prescribed as an alternative I'd say MS Contin. There are others bot for me these two are the most interchangeable (though very different in how they behave in the body). Hope this helps.
Opana ER is a good alternative for Oxycontin. All these different opioids work a bit differently and they all react differently in each and every human body so there is no "true" equivalence. There are charts that can estimate potential equivalence but true equivalence is hard to determine because metabolism of these drugs are based on many complicated chemicals and enzymes and every person is a little different.
Hi ... hope u are feeling better. Here's an honest to God answer... the longer u take oxycontin or any of them "the less it works" it's called toerance" . Ive had 8 surgeries on abdomen for intern al bleeding servere nearly died times 3... Had organs removed. Last surgery 13 hours long... then started getting a sxxt load of AUTO IMMUNEs like ALL from arthritis to lupus strogens diverticulosis and diverticulitis so so bad and whats worst
SCAR TISSUE from 8 surge ries hid the three loops of diver... from being seen for 10 months white blood count over 3000 for past 6Mon ths idiotdrs put me on plaquunil in mist of it... just saw on FDA people w diver(s) die from that med gast... infection... so my friends when you get to thinking your oxycontin don't work ... there is nothing that does trust me PAIN is driving me complete ly insane!!! Drs don't know what to do with me... I'm not suicidal but i
can't wait to die!!! Tired of sufferubf shxxt cancer is at leasttreatable!
There are a few such as Opana ER, Roxicodone, and others similar ones.
There is a generic equivalent to Oxycontin. Check out the company called Actavis. Currently, too the best of my knowledge, actavis.com has been given the rights to make oxycodone hcl er, which is basically the same medication as Oxycontin.
