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"

For Chronic Pain: "Oxycodone has helped me function again. Though the pain is never quite relieved, it takes the edge off the worst severities of it."

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: "This was very effective used as breakthrough medication for my chronic pain. I have a knee replacement that I have problems with and degenerative arthritis in my left hip and lower spine. My extended medication is 80 mg oxycontin."

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."

For Chronic Pain: "I have very aggressive OA. I've had both kneed replaced at 56. I'm in constant pain now because the OA has moved on to left hip and both shoulders. I take the Extended Release and the regular 20 mg. For breakthrough pain. True chronic pain suffers need help with being able to get this medication ! I live in a rural town very small only two pharmacies and one refuses to order it. I maxed out my prescription coverage in Nov. The ER was 473.00. The few have made it hard for the many. Who are going to help us who truly need safe pain medication?"

For Chronic Pain: "I have MS,& suffer from chronic pain. I have been on & off oxy/condone/contain for the last 20 years. Currently I am taking 300 mg oxy codons and 80 mg of. OxyContin a day to manage my pain- do to the tolerance I've built up over the years. My doc unilaterally decided that he wanted to lower my doses- I asked him why, & he had no answer- without them, I'm a bedridden man , and am unable to function- in one visit he cut my dose in half- very dangerous for my MS- so I went to my neurologist, who understands more about the illness. He took over my care- I'm not talking to you abusers who take them to get high with no medical reason. It is because off you , that it makes it difficult on us who actually need them for pain"

For Chronic Pain: "Fell off roof working. Fractured pelvis plus five bulging lower back discs and two hernias. Started 15 mg oxycodone 5x day went straight back to work as a roofer. After five months on that dose now on 30 mg oxycodone 5x day. Able to work and tolerate constant pain. Being a roofer sucks but at least I can do it pain free ."

For Chronic Pain: "Very good, the only bad experience is trying to get the prescription filled. A lot of pharmacies wound fill for certain Doctors. The DA makes a list of Doctors the that have a lot of patients and start giving them a hard time and tell the Pharmacies not to fill for them. But they don't realize that there aren't enough Pain management Doctors in certain areas especially in clinics for the poor. So too many people especially the elders have to go through life in chronic pain. "

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Really helps get rid of my pain. Allows me to function comfortably; since It makes me almost completely pain free, I sleep line a teenager. Prior to using this med, I used to wake up hourly because of pain. My only bad effect is that I get itchy every once in awhile."

For Chronic Pain: "It works fast! For me, it does not last long. For awful lower back pain tramadol actually works better. However, if I need extra relief while on tramadol, Oxy really can help... but not for long."

For Chronic Pain: "At first it was ok for my severe lower back pain. This was on 5mg but it only lasted the first night. Then I needed 20mg and that was ok for 16 weeks and now I pop 20mg and I feel nothing after about 30 mins!"

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "I was in a near fatal car accident when I was 18, I was on Morphine for 6 months. After 30 years it is catching up to me. I am in some pain now most of the time. With Oxycodone I am able to make it through the day, and work. Caution during use, if used for over 90 days, dependency could occur easily. Please be aware of this."
