This question has also been asked and answered here: What's the difference between Oxycontin OC 40 and OP 40?
You and many others have said the same thing. They arent as effective as the old formula and they take longer to work which sometimes results in them being passed through your system and not fully dissolving therefore not getting the full strength of it. Unfortunately thats mostly all you are going to find now. You can try using different pharmacies or even asking them before you fill it and see if they have any of the OC imprint ones left.
Ocean is right. You can also click on the FDA Consumer Updates on the right side of this page. It should be a blue box. Click on any link and scroll to the bottom. There is "contact us" link where you can get the most recent information about medications and log complaints you may have.
Good luck to you.
