Are they coming back with the old version of the pill and formulation of the OC in late sping 2012? I heard they're were over 498,000 complaints from patients taking OP... -Someone please help!!! Thank You - God Bless
Boy I truly hope so!!! I dont think this new version works nearly as well. I'm lucky that I dont have all of the stomach issues that others have had, I just dont feel as good a pain relief! This would be an answer to my prayers but I have not heard anything. It will come down to money. If they are losing a great amount of revenue from people stopping their drug and going to another, therfore dropping their revenue significantly then that will be the decider. It is all about money! I'm sure they will keep the abuse resistant option for Drs who prefer to prescribe it though.
I'm with Dzoo - It would be the answer to my prayers. The OP just didn't work for me due to my digestive problems mostly. They were actually going right through me. This is probably TMI but sometimes I would find the pill in the toilet still almost whole!! When I told my pm doc this he switched me to the Fentanyl patches but they really mess my stomach up. I'm so tired of dealing with the nausea and vommiting. My pm doc said he would switch me back to the OP's but then I'm right back where I started. At least I won't be sick all the time though. I am going to do some research and see what I can find. I do know lots of people have stopped taking them so hopefully Dzoo is right and it is hitting them in revenue. We know that gets their attention even more so than the complaints. Thanks for posting Life Changer and God bless you as well.

I am been on oxycontin 40 mgs 2 x daily for 5 years up til last year when without being told by the pharmacy I began taking 40 mg OP and life has changed for me dramatically. I want off these darn OPs because right from the beginning I was constantly choking on them. I have had four throat surguries-but also I noticed my pain was worse and all I seemed to be doing was staving off withdrawls everyday. I also want to know what the heck I am ingesting everyday-like what the hell are in these pills-plastic??
I am in the process of weaning down but I wanted to note that I just had to have my gallbladder out (I never had problems before), could this be related?
