    My pharmacist is having trouble ordering it and had to call 5 pharmacies to find one that had it in stock. I'm afraid next month I won't be able to fill it.

    Also I know that the Ethex Pharmacuetical company had a recall in Feb 2009 of ALL of their Oxycodone  product ...it was due to oversize pills being made...you can type it in a search engine and pull up all the articles..Frank

    Tehe reason why is 2 out of the 3 companies that

    make it were closed down because of f.d.a. regulations

    and their is a whole section of articles on it at Karen Richards

     the expert so look for her name and look for oxy shortage

    dated March 10 because I know of at least 28 posts on that

    blogging page alone and I was the first one to comment and

     Good luck because I went to 4 places to fill mine!!

    I'm also on oxycodone IR and can't get any. My pharmacist solved the problem for me. He told me to have my doctor just change the prescription to oxycodone 5mg. They are made from a different company. They are in tablet form instead of capsule form. The pharmacy has a lot of them. They are not affected by the shortage. Good luck. Scooter
