I got my Oxycontin field this morning from the drugstore and they are differing it has OP on the. backside, but I don't think they worked as good as the OC's did, I think the pharmacy gave me a generic medication . I'm giving it few days I am on 80 mg three times a day. Do you think the pharmacy made a mistake? This is my first time post I don't understand the difference in this medication can someone please explain it to me,
What is the difference in OC compared to OP?

This is day 7 on this new medication,
My daily activity is not what it used to be my pain is 6 to 7 even taking 3 Oxycontin OP a day ,
Considering my pain was down to 3 to 4 on Oxycontin OC ,
The drugstore price for the new OP's was $1.332.09 for 90 this month and starting to fill very nervous with some sore muscles , and waking up at night something is not right with this new medication! For the price of $15.985.08 a year for pain medication Purdue is making the money ,And we that live in chronic pain or suffering more somethin is not right ! so what is going on here will this new medication is it make us sicker in the long run,
Iwill keep you up to dated
There is a huge difference. First the short acting component has been removed, second Perdue has added complex polymers that are difficult to digest and therfor absorb. This new formula is to stop people from snorting and injecting. However it is awful. I used to take 80mg three times a day and noticed that after the change I was in pain again and sick. 80mgs was like a 10mg. You have been lucky most of us have had to take the new formula since August when it replaced the old. This site lists numours posts about this topic. Good luck to you I hope you do better than I did. I suffered for 5 months and finally my doc took me off it. I take Avinza but it is not near as good as oxy oc but better than oxy op.
