I have been on this medication for some time for permanent and total disability from mutiple back surgery's and it concerns me the the ID went from "80 OC" to "80/ OP" Is there a difference in the formula from "strong" to "weaker" and is ID'd by the difference from OC to OP ???
The company that makes this medication changed it because many were abusing it by snorting, or injecting it and were OD'ing. Most people have complained very much about the changes they made to it. If you will check old posts, you will see that dozens of complaints came in from legitimate patients in the weeks that followed the change of name and formula.
There is a difference between OC and OP. the OC is stronger. The only reason why it was changed to OP because many people have abused it, by shredding it up, injecting it, smokinng it or any other way.But with the OP's its completly impossiable to do any of those. So many people who were abusing the drug either switch to the 30mg oxycodone or have stopped.In that was the main goal of the switch, to get the people who were abussing it off of the drug. So yes the OP is less stronger.
