When at my PCP today, we always discuss meds and I mentioned to her that I heard that the makers of Oxycotin
had changed something about the pills that was not approved by the FDA and that it was easier now to extract the oxy part out of the pill. I think I heard about this from an email from the Ban-Oxy forums. (Might have been propaganda) She said that the makers of one of the extended relief meds have just started to maufacture special pills that are made of two parts, the outer part contains the pain killer but the inner part contained some thing else that caused the pain killer to stop working, an anti-something.
She said it was for those abusers that chewed or crushed/snorted their oxys. She said it was expensive. Has any one else heard about this new way of delivering meds to the body?
The idea is that the pain killer is absorb first and then the body just passes the other stuff with no effect on the pain killer. (It isn't subutex or suboxone.)
(I know that some say that mentioning meds is a red flag but in my case, my PCP and I have a fantastic relationship.
She calls me a fews days after any med changes and we talk on the phone like buds! Does your PCP ask about your family and work and what about those Patriots! We both agree that the oxy abuse problem needs to be addressed and she thinks that this is a start. She says it gives her some tools she can use. I am so gratefull to her and her staff.) If any one in Southern New Hampshire needs a GREAT PCP, PM me.
