“Opioid Spring” Blossoms: FDA Finds “Original” OXYCONTIN Discontinued 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, 40 mg, 60 mg, 80 mg, and 160 mg.
It is unclear whether any ANDA sponsor will challenge FDA’s determination on original OXYCONTIN in court. If someone does, however, rest assured that we will be on the case.
FDA has long considered the abuse potential of a drug in numerous regulatory contexts. Where appropriate, FDA may take into account abuse potential as part of the safety profile of a drug when weighing its benefits and risks. In this case, FDA has considered the abuse potential as part of the Agency’s determination of whether the original formulation of OxyContin was withdrawn from sale for reasons of safety or effectiveness. This approach is particularly appropriate here in light of the extensive and well-documented history of OxyContin abuse.
The cherry blossoms are finally in full bloom in Washington, D.C., and so too is FDA’s thinking on one non-abuse-deterrent drug. In a prepublication version of a notice that will be published in the Federal Register on April 18, 2013, FDA has determined that OXYCONTIN (oxycodone hydrochloride controlled-release) Tablets, 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, 40 mg, 60 mg, 80 mg, and 160 mg, approved under NDA No.

We found a bottle with two 15mg of oxycodone and two 80mg of oxycontin. Our friend had passed away and no one is sure why. While cleaning.
