Carlisle Pharmacy News — Launch of Generic Oxycontin CR

Released: 10/01/2014   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Manager

The generic equivalent of Oxycontin CR (Oxycodone HCl ER) has just been released, following FDA approval. Oxycontin CR is a Schedule II narcotic and is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Generic prescription drugs approved by the FDA have the same high quality and strength as brand name drugs. Generic prescription drug manufacturing and packaging sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand name drugs.

Over the next 30 days, Carlisle Medical will be contacting physicians to inform them that the generic version of Oxycontin CR is available. Our management makes a difference.
