Reviews for Oxycodone

Sort by:

OxyIR (oxycodone) for Pain: "Recently my doctor changed my breakthrough pain medication to Oxycodone 20mg from OxyContin 20mg. Immediately I noticed a huge difference, and for the first time in four years felt that my pain controlled. Now I'm taking OxyContin 80mg twice daily with Oxycodone 20mg every four hours prn. Overall oxycodone provides the quickest and most effective pain control above all oral narcotics I've taken. However I do caution long-term users of increases in tolerance, monitoring if ever more medication is needed to achieve the same effect. I first noticed an increase in my tolerance two weeks of taking 4-6 tabs daily. I gradually increased my dose until I was needing double my starting dose. Within one month my tolerance increased by two-fold."

For Pain: "I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 3 yrs ago. I'm 49 and it has completely turned my life up side down. So much pain continuously and I am on Humira, methotrexate and Plaquenil. For pain I have had just about everything Norco, 100mg Fentynal patch and what has worked the best was Oxycontin. It has at least opened a window where I can function and actually spend time with my family. I'm currently taking 2 x 80mg but fixing to tell my doctor to double it up as he said we need to find where we need to be. Anyone suffering from this disease knows the great pain associated with it. God bless if you do and hope this helps."

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Pain: "The best by far of pain medication I have taken. I like that it lasts all day. I take the 30mg for osteoarthritis pain and neck degenerative disk pain. It makes me able to live my life. The BEST!"

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "When they changed the formulation it does not work as good, or as fast. It upsets my stomach and gives bad headaches. "

For Pain: "Oxycodone is relatively effective at relieving moderate pain. It is somewhat fast acting so relief comes within a reasonable amount of time. Down side; pain relief does not last very long and the side effects can be difficult to tolerate. The dizziness and nausea associated with taking the medication actually last longer than the pain relief."

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Pain: "Best medicine I have used. I was told to take it every 4 hrs 15mg tab. It usually wears out after 3 hours though I need to talk to doctor about this. But other than that I like it with mild side effects. The worse being mood swings and at night hallucinations."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "Very effective at managing my pain that stemmed from a spinal injury and subsequent spinal surgery. It has been the only medicine that manages the pain after trying all the other non-narcotics as well as nerve pain medications."

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Pain: "I have been on Roxicodone for almost three years due to my compression fractures and other chronic back pain. It worked very well in the first 6 months, but I then built a tolerance and cannot stay out of pain all day. Would recommend the extended release."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "This medication is the only one out of so many that have been prescribed over all the years that I have suffered with my condition. (Severe degenerative bone disease, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, etc.) The negative effect I experience is constipation for which I use Benefiber."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "Without this medication I wouldn't still be doing my dream job of working with animals (a very tough job even for a healthy person). Before I was prescribed this I tried every single other medication there was without success!"

For Pain: "Because of stomach issues, I am unable to take NSAIDS. However, I have severe osteoarthritis and some rheumatoid arthritis, with multiple joint replacements, not all of which have had a satisfactory outcome. I am very judicious about using the oxycodone and check in regularly with my Doctor. It's been a God send."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "My right hip and pelvis were both surgically modified when I was 5 years old. 30 years later here I was in so much pain I could no longer sleep and I was starting to have thoughts of hurting it worse just for that few seconds of relief immediately after. I went to the doctors and tried way many pain killers until he put me on Cymbalta 1 cap 1 a day and 60mg Oxycontin 3 times a day. This worked well other than the super low energy add some Dexedrine and I was good to go but now almost a year later it has stopped working. "

For Pain: "LIKES: It works on post surgical pain. While it makes me a bit tired I can still function and work. It does not make me nauseous. DISLIKES: It makes me so itchy I cannot function and need to take a 25mg hydroxyzine with each 10mg tablet. The histamine release is so aggravating that wearing clothes is just short of torture and every pore feels like it has a live nerve in it. My bowels have stopped completely. The CONS outway the PROS on this one for me. I have read a lot on how addicting this is and I cannot understand why - while it certainly did work on the pain, it made me feel miserable."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "I'm 66 yrs and have had back pain for 46 yrs. My doctor had me on Percodan for about 15 yrs then he switched me over to Oxycontin when the Percodan didn't help. I'm on 10mg twice a day. I have Degenerative disk disease from L1 to L5 plus a fractured tail bone (from a fall). My doctor does not want me on them but I cannot function with the pain. Doctor is so scared that I will die if I take too many even though I would never abuse them. I have tried acupuncture, cortisone shots and most of anything that would ease the pain but Oxycontin does the job. BUT they take a long time to kick in."

For Pain: "My Mother is prescribed this medication for pain from several different issues. They range from 4 rotator cuff surgeries, to bone grafts, and a couple other pretty gnarly issues. She's tried the other medicines with little to no results. I remember the week her doctor started her on oxycodone and it was like she was given a second chance at life. She could move about as she pleased (as opposed to being bed ridden with pain), she could make dinner plans, go on trips to see family members, etc etc etc. "

For Pain: "I had shoulder surgery 6 weeks ago and it helped me tremendously the first 5 days after my surgery. I had to take it regularly every 4-6 hours to help with the pain. It worked wonders. It made me nauseous if I didn't take with food and made me a little dizzy and light headed so no driving while on this medicine until you get used to it. Other than that it was very helpful with my pain."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "I've been in severe pain for about 8 years and I'm only in my early 30's. Have been told by too many doctors that I have fibromyalgia but cannot function on Lyrica. Been on Oxycontin 60mg twice a day for almost 3 years now. I was able to work and take care of my child. But lost insurance and can't pay the for Oxycontin. So I haven't been able to work. "

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Pain: "If not for Roxicodone (oxycodone) 30mg tablets I'd have unbearable back and leg pain from a disc herniation. This medicine makes the pain go away, 99.9%! I need 90-120mg/day. I also take Aleve 440mg, once every 2 days. I need something without acetaminophen for the health of my liver. Roxicodone has given me a life."
