Don't be fooled by the reformulation of OxyContin and the claims that it is less dangerous than before. That's the message behind the citizen petition to the Federal Drug Administration, which was signed and filed Monday by Danville resident Bob Pack and San Ramon resident April Rovero, as well as two others.

If you had as many problems as i do, been through every medication on the market, realized absolutely NONE of them worked for you, and that Oxycontin in general gave me SEVERE stomach pains (allergy? shrug, i donno why) -- then to find out i was taking Generic oxycontin, i was told to try brand.....so i tried brand (paying an extra $2500/mo cause i cant get brand coverage) i find out that the medication works VERY VERY VERY well on me, but the generic "Footballs" only cause me more pain and suffering in my stomach/bowel (which is the same time release being used in the reformulation, by the research ive done atleast, calling and talking to their pharmacists)
Before i found a medication that worked for me, i wished to end my life, now i find one, been on it for about 5 years, been forced to take the generics randomly within that time (out of stock or to broke to afford my relief) i ran into times with the generics where i couldnt do anything but take care of the opiate withdrawls with the pill and then toss and turn crying with my stomach pain in bed....its fkin redicilous....
so those of us who dont abuse have to suffer, in my case, medications like Dialudid - dont have ANY effect, ive had an injection of over 50mg at a hospital, it did absolutely nothing, no relief, no sedation, nothing, several other medication do barely anything to me, i dont know why but oxycontin (and fentanyl, but to a much lesser extent) are the only 2 medications that work for me......
im frantically trying to find a pharmacist thats willing to stock some of the old brand so atleast i have a few months before i finally kill myself, cause im just tired of all this [edited], its bad enough the [edited] and expenses we have to go through while in pain and suffering, now i have to go into withdrawls OR add a pain to get rid of a different pain, which i allready have stomach/bowel problems so im sure it will be worse than just a pain, for all i know its an allergy and it will cause long term damage to my stomach.....and because i wont have any choice but to take it to stay from the nasty withdrawls at my dose... if im gona be in that pain, i sure hope it causes perm damage, so i can [edited] sue the livin shit out of them for [edited] the only god damn medication thats been released that actually works on me!
i hated life, oxycontin gave me a life back, i was able to move, walk, leave the house, ect, i was still difficult to take care of, hated bothering other people with my problems, but with oxycontin i was able to DO stuff, not just watch or cry about not being able to...and now the rug is being pulled right from under my feet, this is some pure [edited]....
[edited] all you oxy abusers out there, [edited] FDA, [edited] it all - gona go back to hating life and wishing for death, i hope they get seriously sue'd or [edited] over by this reformulation, they deserve it, [edited]...like charging an arm and a leg for somehting so [edited] cheap wasnt enough, now they have to [edited] up our stomachs too and make random people sick.....
[edited] this god damn country and its FDA....
[edited] the world,
[edited] whatever left me in pain like this from birth
[edited] all of you complaining and ruining oxycontin for those of us who ARE truely suffering....
just [edited] and mind your own god damn business, i leave my death on your hands....for i wont be able to handle it anymore going back to the way i was before i found brand name oxycontin.....
