I might be switching to Oxycontin 80mg from my fent patches. I will have to pay out of pocket for them though. So, what should I be expecting to pay for 60 of the 80mg brand name pills?

Thanks!

Check the chain pharmacy web sites. Most of them will give you pricing.

My insurance company has a prescription pricing calculator. I just looked for you, it gives 5 pharmacys in a 5 mile radius, the prices were from 615 to 659 without insurance. But thats for name brand i'm not sure if they still make generic 80's. thats a expensive script, i dont know how folk afford that without insurance each month.

This is like The Price Is Right. I'm going to guess $.01. :-) Actually, the best advice is to shop around if you don't have insurance. My guess would be some pharmacies would act funny if you called them on the phone without explaining your situation, because I'd think they would think you may be trying to determine if they had OC for a break-in / robbery. I'd just call and say I'm currently on Fent patches, but am going to be switched to OxyContin because of _______ reason, and that I have no insurance, and am wondering what the cost would be because I have to pay out of pocket. That's reasonable enough. I wouldn't just call and say do you have OxyContin (because the answer would most likely be yes) and how much is it.

They afford it by selling 12 for $50 each, then they have 48 pills for $15-59

Yeah, it's ridiculous. They blame people for abusing OC and stuff, but they don't place any blame on pharmaceutical companies for charging so much. If they didn't charge so much, people wouldn't have to sell part of their script to pay for it, less OC would be diverted, thereby having less people addicted. Heroin is cheaper than OC, I can see why people who started on oxy went to heroin b/c it's cheaper. They'd also be indirectly curbing heroin use by making oxy cheaper, because if you make OC cheaper, more people with legit scripts wouldn't have to sell part of their meds to get the money to buy the script, which would mean less diverted OC, less people addicted, and then less people on OC illegally would turn to heroin because the OC would be cheaper or they wouldn't be on it at all because they never got addicted in the first place.

Also

Opana 5mg IR 100.0 ea = $ 256.88 ( Endo )

Opana 10mg IR 100.0 ea = $ 466.44 ( Endo )

Dilaudid 2mg 100.0 ea = $ 37.18 ( Roxane )

Dilaudid 4mg 100.0 ea = $ 61.31 ( Roxane )

Dilaudid 8mg 100.0 ea = $ 131.93 ( Roxane )

When generic Oxy is taken off the market I would like to

switch to Opana but my insurance doesn't pay for Brand so

doesn't look like that's going to happen.

It's off the net for people from Vermont because Vermont makes

pharmacies publish their prices. Wish all states would, might help.

You're looking at about $600-700 depending on the pharmacy. You should print one of these discount cards. Might save you a little bit on them.

I have a friend who is scripted 200 80's a month. They cost him $13 each. It usually has to presell to some people and collect the money up front. That way he can fill his script and basically end up with his for free.

Since he gets #200 80 OC's and #720 Roxi 30's, he supplements his income nicely. When you can sell #400 30's at $15, that is cool $6000 a month with out a hitch. He ends up buying and selling all month. He has been on this stuff for 22 years, so he is in one hell of a opie hole.

Damn man he's got it made if he hadn't been an addict for so long and he didn't have to end up buying more when he runs out. He could make $72k annually and still have 200 80's and 320 roxi's a month. Or he could make $225k a year if he sold all his oxy for .50 per mg. I'm jealous

I get jealous sometimes also, but he is in such hell I do not know if that is something to be envious of. He always sells to many since it is his main income and always runs out early. Then he has to spend more on the streets just to get by\

Holy crap, that's some fucked up prices!!!

MScontin * 30mg * 30ct * 93.03
I'm paying 30-40 dollars for these in Canada... Believe I payed 70$ for 100! In Denmark I payed under 20$ for 100 generic MS Contin...

Oxycontin * 20mg * 30ct * 135.47
Shiat! I payed 200$ for 30 80ies in Canada... In Denmark I payed 80 for 50 of the 20'ies

Endocet/Percocet * 5/325 * 30ct * 19.21
In Canada 30 percs will cost you anywhere from 3-10 dollars... I guess if you live anywhere close to the border, get your script filled in Canada... Shit, you can probably pay for an airplane fare AND a hotel for the money you save on a decent script!
