Reviews for Oxycodone
OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "I have suffered RLS since about 5 years of age. Now 78. Nothing would stop it - neurologists tried all usual medication, permoglide, rivotril, etc. Then saw new GP in 60's who also suffered badly and he had in desperation tried oxycontin with great relief. Suggested I tried one 10 mg tablet before going to bed or when travelling as passenger in car - this was intolerable. Found tablet worked like magic and although reliant on it still take same 10 mg but one tablet first thing in morning and one prior to going to bed - about 1 hour before. Found it does not always work at night so I can be up until 3 am walking the floor nearly going insane as pain in legs is so bad. However, 90% of time I do get incredible benefit."

For Chronic Pain: "Worked great after a car accident and i had back and knee injuries. Now since I've been taking so long it doesn't work. I just throw up and suffer in pain all the time. I don't agree with the fact acetaminophen is added. That stuff is garbage plus why add it if we can just go buy it."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Im a ex flooring installer of 17 yrs (11 yrs non-union 6 union yrs) My back is wrecked, I have tears in 2 of my discs at L3/L4 and L4/L5 locations. I have no cartilage left anywhere in my lower back. My PCP put me thru the tests multiple MRI's/CT's injections, lots of predisone and then finally Norco. It took me a few days of being on Hydrocodone before the relief started, but relief it was! I gained much of my functionality back. I was moved up to the higher doses and then on to OxycontinER. Oxycontin had less side effects, and in general felt less wasted. Im now on 60mg x3 daily with 20mg IR 3x daily. Its been very helpful in my life."

Oxaydo (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Breast cancer left side and radiation damage. My left arm is in constant pain. I work long hours so don't want to make any pain meds during work but want something to help me sleep through the night - pain relieve. The OTC meds is tearing my stomach and cause uncontrol bowel movement. Would this help with pain so I can rest? It's been over 16 months and I have not had more than 6 hour sleep. I also want to make sure this is not habit forming"

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have to laugh when I read some of these comments . Why do I itch ? Because you are taken too much ! Listen I take 7 pills a day of oxycotin 80 mgs and 15 pills a day of roxy 30mgs because a doctor years ago decided it would be the best thing for me and it was the worst thing he ever did to me . I take over 210 80s a month and 450 30s that's is 660 pills a month yes one month ! I would tell anyone do not take these meds I am so addicted to these now and now with Obama and the DEA against them doctors are being told to take ppl off them well that's great now I deal with the withdrawal and it's terrible please please please if you really need the meds take them with caution they become so so addictive doesn't matter who you are"

For Chronic Pain: "2 back surgeries/last one failed badly.Had 1400# horse drop back on top of me and reinjure my back, broke pelvis, pneumothorax, crushed shoulder and numerous internal injuries. A 2nd back surgery made things worse. I have been in constant back and now knee pain for 16 yrs. Surgeon and PCP who is a DO said I would never be someone who had to worry about having pain meds taken away. Well, they did 6 months ago and I have Advil. I can't shop, I can't care for myself and I am at the mercy of strangers. I hope every day to let me find a pain specialist who knows about chronic pain or let me go the next time I become dehydrated as walking to the kitchen hurts too much to get water. People dying out here because can't self care!!!"

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have 7 bulging disks, DDD and AS, on daily pain meds for 7 years. I requested a long acting pain med and had been on oxycodone IR 10mg. x 3 a day. Dr switched me to OxyContin 10 mg 4 per day. AMAZING RESULTS! I no longer feel drugged, I feel like myself again. The IR made me feel drugged and only lasted 3 hours, was a roller coaster all day long. I take 2 in the morning, 1 at 2 pm and 1 at 6 pm. and do not feel like I am on any medication at all, but the pain has gone from an 8 to a 2 (if I don't move) to maybe a 4 or 5 at worst. Able to clean house, shower, do many activities I was unable to do before. I feel so blessed that I have my life back. It seems to give me energy but no other side effects at all. No dry mouth either."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I was wondering if anyone has noticed any difference in the Oxycontin since the formula has been changed from from OC to OP. Just curious after reading someone else's review."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Was taking 10mg oxycodone 6 times a day for an operation that went horribly wrong. I was always dizzy nauseous and tired. Started ocycontin 20mg twice a day and changed my life. Less percs feel almost normal. Now if the pharmacists wouldn't treat US like dirt life would be good. Highly recommend"

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have back surgery and the surgery and the medication I was on wasn't helping much. My doctor gave me OxyContin try and it's been a lifesaver for me. "

For Pain: "I was given oxycodone for pain relief in the hospital after hip replacement surgery. The pain relief was okay, but the side effects of nausea, confusion, and weakness made me feel wretched. Who wants to throw up repeatedly and feel pathetic after surgery? As soon as my surgeon swapped oxycodone for tramadol, the bad side effects disappeared. Tramadol's pain relief was comparable or better. I'm amazed by all these high ratings because many friends had similar bad side effects with oxycodone."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been prescribed Oxycontin 60mg for well over 6 years now in just in the last 2 months I have gotten a refill I know for a fact that either the manufacturer or where they get their medication through there has been a shortage of the medication per the dosage compared to what it used to be. I don't know at what level this is occurring . Whether this is another Government regulation that says if someone is prescribed 60mg tablets the manufacturer is only allowed to put 30mg in that tablet? I have been on this same medication for a long time and starting December 2015 and January 2016 my medication has been shorted. My body goes through tremendous withdrawal symptoms each month I refill this medication. I need an answer."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been on Oxycontin since 2003 on a daily basis. I have chronic abdominal discomfort because I had my large intestine removed due to chronic Ulcerative Colitis. I also have had Degenerative Disc Disease since 1998. I've had to have my right hip replaced due to an injury in 2008 and I have chronic sciatic nerve pain in my left hip that runs down to my foot. I found this drug to be more effective than any rehabilitation or needle injection that I've ever had. I have tried many different treatments like injections and physical rehab but I get the best pain relief from taking 3 - 60mg. Oxycontin every 8 hours and 10 mg. Oxycodone IR pills every 4 to 6 hours daily for increased pain and discomfort. The bad part is I lost most of my teeth."

For Chronic Pain: "After 11 knee surgeries (one replacement) , shot 3 times, surgery to remove bullets, surgery to try to repair nerve damage in left leg, and numerous other surgeries, Oxycodone is the ONLY medication that kills the pain and allows me to get through the day. Six months ago the doc reduced my oxy and added MS Contin for long term pain relief. I prefer the oxycodone as the MS CONTIN (morphine) reduces energy level and make me groggy. Oxycodone is an Awesome drug...too bad the "younger generation" use it to get "High". Makes all of us that really need it, difficult to get it."

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I'm 20 years old and have been dealing with Testicular Neuralgia, which causes severe pain in the scrotum, for more than a year. Vicodin didn't sustain my pain nearly as much as Roxicodone does. My Pain Doctor prescribed me 15 mg of Oxycodone (Roxicodone) six times a day. This medication has literally given me my life back. It simply takes my pain away for hours and I can function 100% better. I take this along with MS Contin and a muscle relaxer. 10/10 rating!"

For Pain: "Ok, I've used Oxycodone for the last 2 years, when I got in a bad car accident. I stayed at a hospital for 3 weeks. I was given 30mg Morphine, 2mg Dilaudid, 2mg Ativan, and 50mg Promethazine every 4 hours, IV. I got sent to a pain management doctor, after talking about what happend, he gave me a script for 10mg Methadone 3x daily, and Oxycodone 30mg for breakthrough pain 4x daily. From 10/10 pain, with these amazing pain killers, my pain is now just 1/10. Thank you Methadone, and esp Oxycodone."
