I just filled a script for Oxycontin and noticed they were different so I asked why, and here is the great news. They changed the pill to where it can not be abused by drug addicts. The new formula had a very hard center that not be cut in half, chewed or crushed, or used to be injected. I think this is so great and maybe will help stop the misuse of the medicine, and save lives. Even better new is that now Dr.s will be able to write scripts to patients that really need them with out so much worry as to the concern of Oxycontin being misused. They also predict there will be a rise in ER visits from addicts having with drawls from abusing the drug. I think this is a great step in helping to keep the pain meds on market they us in pain really need.
