HELP!!!! Does anyone have any info about a potential Roxicodone (30 MG) by Actavis in Orlando area??? Does anyone know any stores that currently have the 30 MG roxi 's by Actavis in stock. I just visited my Dr. and I am having a bad problem filling my script, and my normal pharmacist said that there was going to be a bad shortage of the Actavis 30 MG IR Roxi's in Orlando for a while. I do not know if I can go thru the holidays stressing about locating my meds. Some of the generic manufactures pills are BS and make me sick (withdrawal) with in 2 hrs, with the Actavis I can actually go for 4 – 5 hrs. before my next odes.

Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! Last spring when there was a shortage it was living hell! I relay do not want to go thru the holidays sick.

Thanks! & Happy Turkey Day 2009!

Do you know any place closer to Orlando?? Also I have insurance - United Healthcare and when this happened earlier this year NO place in Orlando would take insurance and they raised the price anywhere from 3 - 5$ per pill and I get 360 per month, as does my Hubsand, and he will have a problem getting his too.
Have you heard anything about a shortage of the 30 mg. roxi ir's by Actavis?

Thanks for the help! And let me know if you get any more info.

Hello,
This won't help you with your problem, but I'm having the same problem in the Houston, Texas area. I must have called 100 pharmacies on Tuesday before I finally found some - at a Randall's Grocery Store Pharmacy. Walgreens and CVS acted as though I was bothering them; never mind the 12+ years I used them exclusively. This is not a great way to kick-off my Thanksgiving Holiday, I am just Thankful I was able to find them. I hope you have had success in finding yours. The way this times out, I'll be going through this during the final shopping days before Christmas. What a way to live. Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas/Holiday season and New Year while I'm at it.

There has been technology that the Fed know about that will stop this. However 38 states passed the NASPER Bill that is nothing more then placing our personal medical records on a WEBSITE! NASPER does not run in Real Time so the drug dealer gets his pills and makes his money. However We had had technology that will stop this on the spot! Close all Pill Mills and the Feds know this. 38 states use the NASPER database system that is backed by Purdue that makes Oxycontin??? Why. FAKE ID beats it and it's NOT a real time system. Until we use a database that runs in real time that something as easy as FAKE ID beats it our kids will keep dying and Purdue will keep making billions, the Feds will keep their jobs and everyone is happy but US! BioScriptRx.com is a real time system that using a biometric finger scan that tells the doctor or pharmacy If this person is a doctor shopper. The BioScriptRx system works in Real Time and uses Biometrics so no one
can use FAKE ID. Until we use biomedtrics and a real time system more pills will flow into the streets and our kids will pay the price. It's about job security. Get pissed! Please. Get pussed. BioScriptRx.com will save billions of tax dollars and it's FREE so I ask why are we not using it? Again Job Security.

Its 180 for Roxy 30 mg a month per DOH! In Florida any scripts over that number gets reported to the DOH who reports to the DEA task. This is Florida! One state's number is 90

The DOH uses the Bible called the PDR! Yes I said the PDR! This is the book used to make a case for a doctor who over writes. Check this out, off the subject but you will enjoy http://associationdatabase.com/aws/NADDI/asse...

Let me tell you this.I know lots of people who get 210 to 240 per month. And just recently a month or 2 ago,someone I know well,wink,blink, was told they needed to get down under 200 with 180 being the goal.. Start ed taking 20 away per month last month it went down to 200..So I know it is true that the Dr.s who plan on staying open are now conforming..I'll go to your link now.

Yes I'm sure most know what a PDR is and that was my point, the Fed's using this book to set rules! The link may be a secure site as I'm in NADDI so I hope it works! I really seen a lot for the short time Ive been on this site, Ive seen fighting and name calling when we ALL need to UNITE to fight for our rights! We need to support each other and share news and leads! When I go to policy meetings in Washington DC and Capital Hill in Florida I am the only medical center/ paitent there to share my POV. In fact its been said many times if the subject matter really mattered to the PM patients, where are they? We can unite and make change and who cares if there is a typo!

You are so right! If we,myself included,would spend as much time working on protecting our rights as we do arguing with scammers anf fake posters we would not have near the problems that we are faced with tday. Thanks for your efforts...I mean That!

Dear Niffer, by now you have probably gotten the help you need, but in answer to your question, there appears to HAVE been a shortage of the 30mgs. throughout the entire east coast. Since they removed the 10 mgs. and a few others off the market, they have had enormous amounts of requests (RX) for the 30's. Also, many patients are being switched from the oral pill to the liquid I/R.(that is in my personal case)
Trying to find the 30mg. liquid has been a nightmare for me. The pharmacies unable to receive shipments from their wholesellers (sp?) because the pharmaceutical companies are backlogged. Until this past week did my pharmacist call me and tell me that ALL of my past orders have come in at ONE time. That was only the FIRST call I got. I rec'd the same information from two other pharmacies as well that they had indeed rec'd those backorders.
On another subject broached here, others have referenced the PDR (Physicans Desk Reference), it is apparent to me that although the PDR was at one time, ALL that was referred to and does become outdated within a year, as new generics and new medications come on board. Doctors who do not keep up with pharmaceuticals or the internet info., are basically in the dark. Such as with the Oxycodone 10 mg. They are prescribing it constantly, but it is not being supplied any longer. The patients who get the script inevitably must return to the doc and ask they be exchanged for 5mg. instead and doubled. Oh, please don't get me wrong, the PDR should be sitting on every docs and nurses desk. It has always been considered the "Bible" concerning medication. But docs need to all wake up and understand that they must participate in the changes taking place, to be aware if you will. They can better serve their patients, causing less confusion and of course also, less worry on the patients themselves. Especially those patients who are unfamiliar with medications. Most of us here generally are "in the know" as we have been taking them for long periods of time and also are in contact with others like ourselves, sharing this information.
Okay, off my soapbox, and hoping that you have found a pharmacy carrying your medication.
Oh, one other thing. You know when you call a pharmacy and they will NOT tell you by phone if they have your particular meds., especially narcotics? You can FAX a copy of your script and they are more likely to give you the correct information.(I found this out recently:)
Much love and Happy Holidays to all,
Kitty
