My new plan that I am switching to has nothing re oxycodone 30mg IR, but covers Oxycodone HCL tabs, but when I look that up that takes me to OxyContin or Fentenal... does any1 know if wut I'm currently taking, Oxycodone 30mg Immediate Release is the same as the HCL tabs... as my prt d coverage has no cost for the hcl tabs during the coverage gap???
I do not know how to answer that I believe they may be the same but I went through the same thing when i was switching from percocet to oxycodone IMM (immediate release) The best person to ask this to is a pharmacist because the doctor who was prescribing it really didn't know the answer. I would seriously let the pharmacist explain the difference and if Part D doesn't cover it he/she may be able to tell you what is the same as what you are taking that is covered. I hope this helps. This can get really confusing when there like 100 of same drug out there under different name
Good Luck and God Bless Have a great holiday
HCL stands for Hydrochloride. ALL Oxycodone has Hydrochloride in it. It can be called Oxycodone Immediate Release or Oxycodone HCL Immediate Release. Either way it's all the same. So what you're taking (Oxycodone 30mg IR) Is exactly the same as Oxycodone HCl 30mg IR. I hope this helps. Good luck!
