I believe that I am having a severe reaction in my stomach because of this new chemical make up that I was not told about and it is causing severe pain in my stomach.
This question has also been asked and answered here: What's the difference between Oxycontin OC 40 and OP 40?
Yes they have changed the formula in order to prevent misusing the oxycontin. The new version OP (oxycontin Purdue) is tamper resistant and there have been several complaints about digestive problems. There was a recent death of a Drugs.com members family friend who mistakenly took too many because they were not working as quickly as the old OC. There is also a question posted by a member RSDHurtzme you may want to review and comment. She is having similar issues with this medication. I would also recommend contacting Purdue Pharmaceuticals and logging a complaint. If you click on find member and type in RDSHurtzme, you can post to her question as well. Good luck to you and hope this issue gets resolved quickly.
