Oxyfast (oxycodone) for Pain: I was taking Oxycontin after 2 shoulder surgeries, then I was in a bad auto accident. Even upping me to 80mg 2 x daily wasn't enough. My doctor suggested the Oxyfast for breakthrough pain, so I tried it. This was the only combination that took away all my pain, so I could work and care for my family. At 29 yrs old I thought my life was over, but these medications gave me my life back!

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: I have had 3 major life-saving surgeries in 11 months, and have tried a number of pain medications. While grateful to be alive, the constant pain had reduced my quality of life to just about zero. I now take Oxycontin 20 mg 2x a day, vicodin 10/325 4 times a day for breakthrough pain. This "recipe" has literally given me my life back! Occasional constipation is the only real side-effect I've experienced. 6 months ago I spent most of my life in bed. Now I am able to participate in all the activities I enjoyed before the surgeries, and take care of the day to day responsibilities of housekeeping, etc, without help.

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Pain: This is the best out there. I have been on Roxicodone for 2 years and it is the only pain medication that actually takes away the pain and it doesn't even make me tired.

oxycodone for Pain: I have a L5 S1 herniated disc. And have been through MANY pain medicines and this is the only 1 that has done anything. I have been on it since January 09 and have had the dosage increased once. I was referred by my family doctor to the NeuroSpine Clinic.
oxycodone for Pain: The only problem I have with this pain medicine is the itching I get from it. I had neck fusion surgery in November and lumbar fusion on January 13 and emergency back surgery 2weeks later. This is the only pain medicine that has ever really helped control my pain.
oxycodone for Pain: I fell 25 foot off a roof at work and shattered both heels and ankles, in October of 2008 and from the trauma of the fall and surgeries I got RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy). If it where not for the Oxycontins I would not be able to do what needs to be done day to day. And they work well with the other medications I am on.
OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: Works miracles for Fibromyalgia. I don't ever want to experience the pain of a nerve attack without Oxycontin ever again. I'm 19, so I can't just stay home and suffer and lounge around. I have a life to live, and if it weren't for Oxycontin I wouldn't be able to perform simple every day tasks. I will say though it is much, much safer to stay with the lowest possible dose, which are the 10mg ones (I don't take generics so there are probably lower doses, I just don't know of them). If you use Oxycontin in moderation and as prescribed it is easy to control dependency. They also work great for Rheumatoid Arthritis. Hope this helps.

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: I have been on Oxycontin for over a year now and it has helped me tremendously although I only take 30mg XR 3 times a day and IR for break through pain 3 times a day. I am not in pain most of the day. I awake in the morning feeling crappy but take an IR and within 1/2 hour I am fine. I do not feel "high", I can function normally and even care for 3 grandchildren I am now raising. So, without this medication, I'd be on short term pain medicines that do nothing but make you sleep. I was on Roxicodone for a year as well and they took me off at my request and because I needed pain medicines for the long term I thank whoever is responsible for finding this medication for us, who depend on it, to let us lead normal (best of our ability) lives.

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: I have been on Hydrocodone 10 /500 and Norcos 10/325 for a year. He recently moved me over to Percocet 10/500. I was still taking 4-5 at a time 3 to four times a day and functioning fine, going to school and taking care of my kids without a hitch. I could not afford to take them anymore at 100 dollars with no insurance for a script.

oxycodone for Pain: I'M 21 YEARS OLD AND HAVE A LOWER BACK PAIN FROM BEING OVER WEIGHT AS A CHILD. I HAVE LOST THE WEIGHT BUT STILL HAVE THE PAIN. I HAVE TAKEN 3 x 5MG OF OXYCODONE AND IT HELPS ME WORK A FULL DAY.
OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: As a pharmacy technician, the advice in this column recommends that unused portions of the drug should be flushed in the toilet. This is an incorrect myth. Drugs flushed in the toilet can contaminate our resources and water supply. Any drugs not used should be turned into a pharmacy so proper disposal can be taken care of.
Editor's Note - Only about a dozen drugs, such as powerful
narcotic pain relievers and other controlled substances, carry instructions for flushing to reduce the danger of unintentional use or overdose and illegal abuse.
The FDA worked with the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) to develop the first consumer guidance for proper disposal of prescription drugs.

oxycodone for Pain: I've been on oyxcodone for 3 yrs due to metal in my neck and lower back. Had surgery 2 years ago. Still have stiffness, and neck and lower back really hurts when it's cold, due to the metal in my back and neck. Oxycodone has really helped me.
OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: To keep this within limits I will not get detailed on the benefits of Oxycontin. As you can read on the other forums it works. I take 80mg 3x a day and it works great. Been on it for 5 years now and liver test done last month was excellent. I am tired of the bad rap this medicine gets though. There are even sites devoted to its removal by people who have lost loved ones who abused the drug. While I feel for these people, no one told anyone abuse this wonderful drug. When taken properly this medicine works excellent with little to no side effects. It is said that you become dependent on this medicine but it is meant for long term and a good doctor will bring you down properly. So withdrawals should be minimum. This is a true wonder drug.
