have been clean for 27 days, do i take them at their word? or take a flight and see if i can help?she says that she was hooked for 4 months! serious replies only! Asked by Glory Weiner 1 year ago.

Roxicodone just like oxycontin. . it is an opiate. . meaning it's like being addicted to heroin. It's a narcotic prescription medication that can only be prescribed by a physician. . .but people are selling them on the streets just like oxys. If she has been clean for 27 days, I would ask how. Did she go to rehab or what? Because opiate addicts don't usually just quit on their own and are known to relapse, even after just 4 months. The statistics are scary for those who actually successfully complete treatment. I don't know the exact number but something like only 30% stay sober after attending rehab the first time for opiate addiction. I'm not sure what your relationship is to her, but taking a flight to "help her" may not do anything. I can't tell you for sure if she is using obviously because I don't know her but I'm highly skeptical of the situation. I would ask for more details and if there is family around her or friends, I would ask that they check on her. If things don't add up right, chances are, she is using. You can't force someone to get clean if they don't want it. You really got to wait until they hit rock bottom and see no way out. That's the scary part. Answered by Gale Macker 1 year ago.

SIDE EFFECTS Serious adverse reactions that may be associated with ROXICODONE® therapy in clinical use are those observed with other opioid analgesics and include: respiratory depression, respiratory arrest, circulatory depression, cardiac arrest, hypoten-sion, and/or shock (see OVERDOSE, WARNINGS). The most frequently observed adverse reactions include lightheadedness, dizziness, sedation, nausea and vomiting. These effects seem to be more prominent in ambulatory than in non-ambulatory patients, and some of these adverse reactions may be alleviated if the patient lies down.

Which medication is stronger? Mepergan Fortis (Demerol) or Percocet, or Roxicodone?
I was asked what I wanted after gallbladder surgery and I'm guessing Demerol...but I'm not sure. Percocet does nothing for my tooth pain so I doubt it will help after surgery. I've never taken Roxicodone. Asked by Nancie Booser 1 year ago.

Roxicodone and Percocet both contain the same opiate which is oxycodone, so if oxycodone does not function well in the elimination or reduction of your pain then I would not choose either of those two medications. The demerol (meperidine) is to most people, stronger than the oxycodone, but keep in mind that everyone responds to opioid agonists differently. Take me for example, oxycodone, hydrocodone and even hydromorphone do not work as well at eliminating my pain as Tramadol does-and most would consider Tramadol the weakest out of that entire list. Whatever medication you get don't forget to take some stool softeners because for many people out there all of the opiates cause some pretty bad constipation leading to hard stools and this can make recovering from a surgery more miserable than it has to be and remember that you do not develop any tolerance to that side effect, so even if you have taken them before the effects the drug has on your bowels is not something that you can get tolerant to.

Answered by Brunilda Nakasone 1 year ago.

Roxicodone is a trade name of the narcotic analgesic oxycodone. It is used in the treatment of moderate to severe chronic pain. Although I admire your intentions to keep your friend safe and sound. The relationship between a patient and his physician is sacred. If his physician deems that this medication is warranted for the treatment of his condition, I do recommend that you do not interfere with this critical relationship. As a physician, I use my medical judgement to determine the appropriate treatment for a given condition, and I use my judgement to determine if I feel that the patient is attempting to obtain prescriptions for substances for which there is no actual indication. I would not violate my patient's confidentiality. As a patient, I would not want anyone to interfere with my patient-doctor relationship, irrespective of whether that person's motives are good. Answered by Toni Moreshead 1 year ago.

Broken bones, cancer, etc. Oxycontin is a last resort now and they only prescribe it for very severe pain. They prescribe painkillers like Vicodin for practically everything from a torn muscle, to a fall on a skateboard with obvious bruising to unexplained pain in a man's testicles.

No. Roxicodone, Percocet, Percodan, OxyContin, OxyIR all have oxycodone and they will all be positive for oxycodone. I suppose the doctor could test for acetaminophen (but I seriously doubt he will) which is in Percocet but you could have taken that at any time. And yes Vicodin has hydrocodone and a comprehensive drug test tests for oyxcodone and hydrocodone separately. If you are misusing drugs in any way (I am not saying you are an addict) it really is important for him to know so he is able to better treat you. What ever your medical problem is you will get better or do better if your doctor knows the full story. Answered by Sandie Throne 1 year ago.

I don't think just one 5mg percocet or oxycodene will show up in a hair analysis test. I think you have to take them for 3 days in a row for the drugs to show up in the hair test. Answered by Jamee Galayda 1 year ago.

they have essentially the same active ingredient ( oxycodone) so im guessing a drug test would show u the same for both . The reason he could tell with vicodin is cause its active ingredient is (hydrocodone) instead of oxycodone Answered by Prince Linet 1 year ago.


Do roxicodones cause birth defects?
If so what are they and where did you get this information Asked by Julian Sarensen 1 year ago.

"Roxicodone is in the FDA pregnancy category B. This means that it is unlikely to cause birth defects. However, Roxicodone may cause addiction and withdrawal symptoms, difficulty breathing, as well as other harmful effects in a newborn baby when taken during pregnancy. Do not take Roxicodone without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant." Answered by Dorthea Lebourgeois 1 year ago.

It's a category C drug meaning that there are no adequate studies done to show whether it does or does not cause birth defects. Edit: Someone else said category B. I'm not sure which one is more recent as these things change frequently as more information is available. Definitely talk to your doctor about it. If it's something you have already taken and just found out you are pregnant, I would not worry too much. None of the articles I am reading indicate that it causes any sort of structural birth defects, as others have mentioned, it causes withdrawl symptoms in the newborn baby, so that would only be a problem if you took it frequently in late pregnancy. Withdrawl symptoms and birth defects are two different things. A lot of women take things like pain medicine before they know they are pregnant and things turn out alright. It happens. Answered by Stella Eveleth 1 year ago.

Infants born to mothers who have been using this medication, especially for an extended time, may have withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, abnormal/persistent crying, vomiting, or diarrhea. Answered by Keiko Baldiviez 1 year ago.

No. Roxicodone, Percocet, Percodan, OxyContin, OxyIR all have oxycodone and they will all be positive for oxycodone. I suppose the doctor could test for acetaminophen (but I seriously doubt he will) which is in Percocet but you could have taken that at any time. And yes Vicodin has hydrocodone and a comprehensive drug test tests for oyxcodone and hydrocodone separately. If you are misusing drugs in any way (I am not saying you are an addict) it really is important for him to know so he is able to better treat you. What ever your medical problem is you will get better or do better if your doctor knows the full story. Answered by Coleman Berrong 1 year ago.

I don't think just one 5mg percocet or oxycodene will show up in a hair analysis test. I think you have to take them for 3 days in a row for the drugs to show up in the hair test. Answered by Tonda Eichler 1 year ago.

they have essentially the same active ingredient ( oxycodone) so im guessing a drug test would show u the same for both . The reason he could tell with vicodin is cause its active ingredient is (hydrocodone) instead of oxycodone Answered by Keva Naveja 1 year ago.


Do roxicodones cause birth defects?
If so what are they and where did you get this information Asked by Fred Keet 1 year ago.

"Roxicodone is in the FDA pregnancy category B. This means that it is unlikely to cause birth defects. However, Roxicodone may cause addiction and withdrawal symptoms, difficulty breathing, as well as other harmful effects in a newborn baby when taken during pregnancy. Do not take Roxicodone without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant." Answered by Mickey Goedde 1 year ago.

It's a category C drug meaning that there are no adequate studies done to show whether it does or does not cause birth defects. Edit: Someone else said category B. I'm not sure which one is more recent as these things change frequently as more information is available. Definitely talk to your doctor about it. If it's something you have already taken and just found out you are pregnant, I would not worry too much. None of the articles I am reading indicate that it causes any sort of structural birth defects, as others have mentioned, it causes withdrawl symptoms in the newborn baby, so that would only be a problem if you took it frequently in late pregnancy. Withdrawl symptoms and birth defects are two different things. A lot of women take things like pain medicine before they know they are pregnant and things turn out alright. It happens.

Infants born to mothers who have been using this medication, especially for an extended time, may have withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, abnormal/persistent crying, vomiting, or diarrhea. Answered by Annice Quillman 1 year ago.
