For those who pay cash and might benefit from this info.. My pharmacy has the new Oxycodone 12 hour ER tablets available NOW as a generic, in 20mg strength. The 10, 40, and 80 should be available within a week or two I am told. These are not old, stockpiles, but the new generic from Mallinckrodt. This drug will only be available for about 1 year I believe, until the end of 2009, but will hopefully save some of you some money over name brand Oxycontin if you so choose, and if you pay cash.. ask your pharmacy soon first, and then ask your doctor!
I know I put this same info in another post, but wanted to repeat it as a new post in case anyone didn't read the other..
