    Exclamation Fake oxycodone 30 - any info?

    I was rx'd Oxy 30 after a car accident in May. Up until now there have been no problems. I recently refiled at a diffirent pharmacy and the pill looks totally different and does not ease the pain. I know there are different manufacturers, but these new pills were so odd to me that I gave one to a friend just to check if I was crazy. He agreed. The new pill was definitely NOT an OXY 30 and actually made him ill - I got a little nauseous, but I have a higher tolerance.

    I did what any normal person would do and started checking the Web for fake pills. There are a couple of stories and message boards out there, but I still don't feel I have an answer to my question.

    The "Normal" Pill is small, light blue, round, with an A, score, 215 on the bottom, nothing on reverse

    The "Mystery" Pill is small, thicker, lighter blue/almost white, "M" in a square on one side and 30 with a score and nothing under the score. Also, the imprint is not as "deep" as in other medications.

    Of course I looked on the Identifier (I use this site a lot). It says they are both Oxy 30, but the "Mystery" pill picture looks different from the actual one that I have.

    In the other stories and pages I have researched, it seems this is a possibility; however, these meds are purchased at pharmacies, not on the street. I read that China shipped a bunch of generics to to the U.S. and because their regs aren't as strict as the FDA, they were made with different fillers and ingredients.

    I just don't know. That's why I'm here. Has anyone had a problem with fake
    Oxy 30s? Any medication for that matter. I am taking these back to the pharmacy, because I am uncertain of exactly what they are. Until then, any answers from the people here would be greatly appreciated.

    teeahgarcia ....... I don't believe that any legitimate pharmacies in the United States would sell a medication not approved by the FDA. Some generics have slightly different fillers and there can be a little difference in how some of them work, even if it's usually only a small difference.

    The blue 30mg pills sound like what Roxicodones are supposed to look like. As long as you didn't buy them on the street you should be safe. But I would check into it further if I really believed I was sold a bootleg medication by a pharmacy. That would be a serious offense on their part and I am very doubtful they would risk the consequences.

    If you are afraid of the legitimacy of the medication you were given confront the pharmacy and the prescribing dr. Stand up for yourself and go see them in person or contact the appropriate regulatory agency. Is it a legitmate pharmacy? Let us know what you find out. Good luck and God bless.
    I am not a dr. My statements are based on years of experience and related education. Consult with the professional of your choice regarding matters of concern.

    Default Fake oxycodone

    THE LIKELYHOOD OF ANY FOREIGN NATION ATTEMPTING TO REPRODUCE A COUNTERFEIT MEDICATION WOULD DEPEND ON THIR POTENTIAL PROFIT. MANY MEDICATIONS WOULD HAVE A CASH VALUE IN THE THOUSANDS($40 TO HUNDREDS PER DOSAGE). OXYCODONE ON THE OTHERHAND HAVE RANGED FROM JUST UNDER A DOLLAR TO AROUND $4 ea.(serious price gouging- which should be taken up with your state atty general and dept of agriculture. i wouldnt go as far to say that it is not possible. with such a high demand, in addition to Malli reaching their annual quota we could see some hitting the streets. i would be concerned with this at the street level(repressed reproductions), but very unlikely to find in a pharmacy. this is just my opinion(using my uncommon sense) for now, but i will be doing some research in the next few hours(after i watch Glenn Beck) until i am satisfied with some info that i feel is credible. gotta go for now. please feel free to critique. im on your side. trying to save us from the uninformed gov't and media. until next time.

    Default Day late dollar short

    For almost a year we have been seeing this, so why it took so long to be talked about. (without saying to much) This person came into the ER apx a year ago, with signs of organ failure, and that for apx two years had been taking pain meds for general reasons not medical. Not to sound medical we did the regular things cbc (the works) beliving that this was liver fail from self medicating.When our test came back it showed high levels of iron and there white blood cell count was gone. They Expired apx 72 hours later, the follow up turned out to be items purchased from people coming directly out of what has been named the "Pill Mills". Law Enforcement from every department you can think of began what turned out to be a year long undercover case, looking at this homicide and what we learned later, several other people same problem. I will not say what states are involved but what we saw that day is one person within 72 hours gone due to complete organ failure and in there pocket, ten 30mg items that were in a pill shape form with the markings of (M boxed around it and 30 on other side ) the way I see it to define this item a pill is wrong, a pill defined is to help with a medical problem, after we learned what was in this item,death was the only outcome for someone and no I can not release contents of it. Police matched a pill with the same markings,size,color and shape and it was oxy 30mg used to treat pain, not the same as the person had on them. This is not proven by fact but the question is how did this person obtain these if he was truefull,it would say that the clinic spoken above had to be involved, law enforcement I think have came to that in there case. Sorry post was so long but to say this is just a street thing going on may be right and why has it taken so long for this to be talked about. Also to those who think the ingredents of these are not harmful to your health in this case they were very.

    Default Counterfeit 30/15 mg oxycodone tablets

    I've heard of only a few cases of someone getting counterfeit Oxycodone tablets from a pharmacy ...In most cases they're widely being counterfeited in private homes with molds purchased from the internet AL g with Feytanal that is cheap so they are putting Feytanal in the tablets shi have look real what's really bad is IV users that purchase these off the streets will purchase them & use what they're tolerance is or what they're use to with Oxycodone but Feytanal is measured in micrograms which these people don't have a way to measure the Feytanal so they're guessing at it & they don't care really & as a result people who do mainly use IV are overdosing it's sad because they're are people who need this medication then they're are people who don't or abuse it ,,so it makes it hard on the people who do need the medication to get from a real Dr. Not a street Dr. The reason I know about these counterfeit ones is my best friend's son over dozed @ 25 years old he was snorting them nevertheless the Feytanal shut his respiratory system down ...I havent heard of pharmacies selling counterfeit ones yet I wouldn't doubt it because of all the FDA / DEA regulations so they or a select few are most likely ordering them from Asia/Canada/Mexico/Middle Eastern country's God only knows where all & they may think they're getting the real thing yet with different fillers ?
    Which they're filled with different fillers alright like they're throwing in everything but the kitchen sink so.be careful there's a test you can buy to test them with it's called the Mandolin test it's very accurate & affordable so don't be just another statistic ...God bless you & God bless us all Good day mate

    The odds that you got counterfeit pills from a pharmacy are extremely extremely low, almost remote.. to the point where I personally wouldn't even consider that a possibility.

    Different companies make different 30mg oxycodone tablets. The ones you got previously with the A and the 215 are ones made by one company, and the ones with the M and a box are the ones made by a different company called Mallinckrodt. There are also like 2-3 more different companies making 30mg oxycodone tablets. What you get from the pharmacy will just totally depend on what that area pharmacy has at that particular time - maybe one pharmacy company has a contract with a specific oxycodone maker, and a different area has a contract with another, or the oxycodone maker as a big surplus so it sells a bunch for cheap to the local area pharmacies, etc etc.


    It seems different ppl have different preferences for which company makes "the best", and it's very subjective. They claim there are various tolerances allowed in the manufacturing process, and so certain batches may be underdosed or overdosed, and there has been a few documented cases of generic pill companies that end up making pills that are dramatically underdosed and leads to harm.... but again the instances of that in modern countries is extremely rare and the odds of that are very very remote to where I again wouldn't even consider that possibility in this kind of situation.

    However, there are also a large group of ppl that say it's all just mental, and that in this age pharmaceuticals production is very tightly controlled and all companies make a similar product and differences you perceive are all in your head. A lot of ppl say very outright that the ones with the M with the box are actually the best, other ppl will say the exact opposite and swear they prefer another company's version and that the ones with the M don't work as well for them. Again, all very subjective as different ppl swear by different versions of the pill and you will get ppl on both sides that hate or love a certain company's version.

    Could also be different factors as well. Maybe your tolerance is building up? And you have gotten to the point where 30mg doesn't do the same thing it used to... just like at one point in your life you were probably on 5mg tablets, and then 10mg.... on your way up to 30mg. The nausea your friend got was probably from his tolerance being too low and not being able to handle a 30mg tablet.The fact that you handed off a pill to your friend to try is obviously worrisome... its evident of the knowledge of the recreational abuse potential of the pill if you are passing them around to friends.


    All I know is... I would assume your pills with the M are 100% legit. But, if you wanna try to return them and get a new script from your doctor and go somewhere else... you can certainly try that. But the pharmacy won't give you a refund on your money once you've taken the pills out of your store. The best you can do is document the best you can that you returned them so that your doctor (and the other pharmacy you use to go to) are willing to write and fill a new script for the oxycodone, because they most certainly will want to know you got rid of the previous supply before they immediately write you a new one.

    Final thing... if taking a 30mg oxycodone (and yes your oxycodones are 100% real) does absolutely nothing for you.... that is trouble IMO. That's a pretty high tolerance you've built up when the highest dose oxycodone (in immediate release form) doesn't do anything for you. Most doctors very uncomfortable to go higher on doses when you've maxed out 30mg doses and don't feel anything. You are likely very dependent on opiates at this point, and will need to keep taking them around the clock to prevent withdrawals. It's up to you to decide, based on your lifestyle/medical problems/etc if you want ot continue like this... dependent on a pill every 4 hours to feel "normal", and always having to constantly worrying about your supply running out.. versus trying to get clean off this stuff.

    I know this thread is extremely old, and has been recently bumped to the top, but I make this long post here for anyone else out there in the future... whether it be days weeks months years from now, that discover this thread, have similar questions concerns, and thoughts about possibly getting off of the dependency prison that opiates can trap you in. Again, feeling nothing after a 30mg oxycodone... definitely should be a sobering moment where you reflect on where you are and where you want to be in the future.
