He said they were the exact same pill. I told him that they couldn't be because of how sick it made me. I suspect it had cheaper fillers in it. It seems that these fillers make me sick.

I don't think he even stocks them any more because they're not much cheaper then the brand Oxy's.
It seems you do not understand what your pharmacist told you. The "generic" he gave you was the brand name product. The only difference was the labeling. The pills were from the brand name maker just sold under the generic name.

If it was Oxycontin generic, you threw up on the real thing


Perdue makes the generic and brand on the same lines with the same formulations and the same raw materials


It WAS NOT the med that made you sick

It was the pills that made me sick. As I said, I didn't even know it was the generic that he gave me. I get that Purdue is supposed to keep the formulation the same but they didn't. They had to have changed the fillers for me to get sick from it.

The MOST common side effect of any narcotic is nausea and vomiting and it has nothing to do with "fillers"

Opiates can provoke nausea and vomiting in any one at any time no matter if they tolerated the medication 99 times out of 100 before

The fact that you got "sick" from an opiate almost certainly has nothing to do with an opiate being generic vs name brand....the opiate formulation is EXACTLY the same

The addicts and seniors who sold half (or more) of their oxycontin always demanded brand. That way they made more per tablet.

I always told them to take, or leave, what I dispensed

I refused to fill anything for the addicts that showed up on OARRS as pharmacy and Dr shoppers

I still do not think you get what your pharmacist told you. The drug company made a batch of pills. Some of that batch was sold under the brand name. Some of the same batch was sold under the generic label. All of the pills were made at the same time from exactly the same ingredients. The "formulation" of all the pills was the same. The only difference was the name on the packaging.

I do get what my pharmacist said. Read back over my replies.

I've been on oxycontin 10+ years. The brand has never made me sick; it's the generics that make me sick.

I don't know how any of you can say with certainty that the generic I was given was the exact same medication. As I've said many times, I did not know Greg gave me the generic but it still made me sick leading me to believe it most certainly had something different even though it was not supposed to

Is that directed at me because I take brand OP? I don't sell my meds and I don't know anyone that would buy OP's on the street. People want oxycodone on the street, not OP's.

I do not doctor shop. I went to my 1st PM doctor from 2001 until 2011 and had to switch because he didn't accept my insurance. I've been with my PM doctor since then. She's with a university hospital and very reputable.

If they were both from the same manufacturer, same batch, and same run there is no way they had different ingredients in them. The whole reason behind lot numbers is because they identify identical product.

Oxycontin used to be desired by junkies before 2010. They would crush it up. In 2010, it was reformulated. If you crush it, it becomes jelly like. All the old generic Oxycontin were removed at that point. Now they all want oxycodone 30.
