    I have been taking this medcation with other pain management care. Within the past month my local pharmacy has had problems tring to order medication.  Is there a known problem? Have they stopped procing this medication?

    I also take oxycotin 80 mg oxycodone is just the generic brand, I go to a small family pharmacy and at one time I was having problems getting my prescription filled when my pharmacist told me that they were no longer making the generic brand anymore and now had to use the real thing, i have insurance through ssi and because they are no longer making the generic anymore then my insurance has to pay for it even if my insurance is through the county or not. I have had absolutely no problems getting my medication filled, my waiting time is probable 5 to 10 minutes tops, hope this information helps you

      Would you please give me the name and the location of the pharmacy so I can get my mothers medication for her. I have been  to so many pharmacies I am so worn down and I do it all for the sake of my mom. She taken the oval ones but they don't work (releave) her pain. Thank you so much

    are you sure that the 80 mg's is right?  never heard of being ableto get it that high?

    Did you get this from a doctor or is this bootleg?

    Some pharmacists fear having Oxyconin on premises due t fear of robbery.  Try a different Walgreens which migt be less fearful.  The 80 mg strength is a high strength but not unheard of by any means.  Try not to need any increase in potency at all.  I hope you can come down to 40 mg strength as there is less likelihood of getting sleep apnea. Try to come down to theloer strength versions unless you are terminally ill so you can be less dependent upon te 80 mg strength.  This drug is so good at giving euphoria because it has thebaine in it which gives a real lift.  Don't stay on the 80g strength if at all possible.  I settled fr the 20 mg strength when I took oxy and I am glad I did and stopping it suddenly gave me 2 weeks of stomach cramps when my doctor died.  Please be careful and understand that some pharmacies do fear robbery and with good reason.
