Reviews for Oxycodone to treat 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): "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): "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): "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"

"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): "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): "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): "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): "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): "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."

"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): "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!"

"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?"

"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"

"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 ."
