You must have gotten the new oc they are now not suppose to be broken in half or they are useless they will not help you in any way i forgot how christine prescribed it but they are basically trash after being broken.
There has been so much confusion over this new version of oxycontin. It can not be crushed, snorted, injected, abused. The OP (Oxycontin Purdue) active ingredients will be destroyed if try to abuse them. There are many rumors "out there" about if and who is still manufacturing "the regular oxycontin" medication. The best thing you can do is ask your pharmacist. The most knowledgeable ones regarding this medication will be the ones nearest to pain clinics and hospitals. You can also call Purdue Pharmaceuticals. FYI, there have been several deaths related to this new version of oxycontin. The irony of this is mind boggling... Manufacture a medication so it can't be abused which will save lives. But manufacture it in a way where it doesn't work fast enough, so people take more (thinking it isn't working) and die anyway. Purdue has a big problem on their hands over this new oxy. Please be careful with this medication.
My best wishes,
Do they say OP or OC on the pill? I thought for sure the 10s and the 20s were going to stay OC and that 40, 60, and 80 were going to be the new OP formula. But from what you are describing, it sounds like you have OP 10s. Let us know so we dont spread false information.
