i found a pill in my sons room it is a round white pill that has OC on one side and 80 on the other. he has addiction issues so i do think this is some kind of narcotic, but his grandmother use to take 80 mg oxycontin and they were greenish blue. I am worried he is not only taking narcotic pills again, but I surely do not want him taking some kind of fake medicine that will hurt him worse than his addiction

Hello, I would be happy to help you.

You are right - I too do not believe that the OC-80 has ever been produced as a white pill. The OC-80 is a green pill. You have two issues:

1. He might be taking a 'counterfeit' medication - so he does not know what he is getting
2. He still has a drug problem

I would take the pill to a pharmacist and ask them if they can confirm what I am telling you.
