My friend has come across a few fake: OxyContin 80mg pills. They look almost identical to the real ones. I have taken a picture but the quality isn't too good, so if anyone asks I will upload it. There are a few ways to tell if you come across a real or fake OC80, so I'll give you guys the inside scoop. Keep in mind you really have to have a real one to compare it to, and still you can barely tell the difference.
#1) The coating is a little bit darker, it's almost impossible to tell. A cellphone light seems to work good for detecting this. It also seems that the coating might be thicker?
#2) On the OC side, the imprint seems to be a little bit deeper.
#3) You can always check the taste. Real OCs taste bitter while the fake ones taste like nothing.
#4) If you bite it, it seems to have a harder texture.
#5) With real OC80s the imprints from backside and frontside do not usually line up. Its printed at random so the imprints could be on any slant, so it is possible for a real 80 to be aligned. The fake ones are always aligned from front to back. So if you find an aligned 80 make sure you check it.
#6) You can just tell the quality of the pill coating and shape isn't the same. But still it's very hard to tell.
If you happen to end up blowing one of these, you will notice there is no drip or taste. It also might break out to a little bit more. Texture may also be a little different. Nothing is too noticeable.
Just want to show everyone how to avoid buying these little pains in the ass! I will upload my picture upon request. You can't see any differences but if anyone is interested to see how incredibly identical they are, let me know and I'll get it up. peace out!
edit: these are not the light green coating-less fentanyl fake 80s
