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.
Here's a link to the article about the oxycodone shortage Bill told you about: http://www.healthcentral.com/chronic-pain/c/5949/62526/oxycodone
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
I Hope that you got my first response
but if you did not 2 of the 3 makers had the
F.D.A. close them down because of a bunch
of wrongdoings and who knows what else?
I hope you can find a place to fill them as
I went Through a Terrible time at first!!
I hope I did not repeat my self
as if you need any help at all
just Write me as I can not see
folks with this need go through
PAIN as I have too Many times!! By the Way I live in Denver
and was curious what state you were having the problem in??
Take Care And good Luck
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
