OxyContin (oxycodone): I have a bullet lodged in my back near my spine, this medication is very helpful in relieving the pain but use with caution I would not recommended this for daily use regardless of the severity of your pain.

Roxicodone (oxycodone): I have been given many choices for my breakthrough pain medication while being on methadone but I have always stuck with the oxycodone. I chose oxycodone without Tylenol because Tylenol causes major GI upset since I suffer from Gastroparesis (delayed stomach emptying). I find it to be very effective in the combination I'm on, the only downside of oxycodone I find with myself is that if it's taken by itself it can cause insomnia which I find to be very annoying.

OxyContin (oxycodone): This helped during oral surgery but made me sleepy...it did not help at all post surgery for rotator cuff surgery and gave me migraines. I felt like a zombie and had lucid dreams.

OxyContin (oxycodone): Initially it was beneficial in easing my chronic pain until I had a recent back operation. Now I am being brought down from a dosage of 120mg per day & now down to 25mg per day. Coming off it has been particularly stressful coping with the withdrawal factor but I have recognized the withdrawal symptoms & learning to cope with them on a daily basis with the help of my GP who has also become my counselor & is helping me with this painful regression of dosage. It has been a period of 4 mths so far & I am hopeful of being totally free of the medicine within that same time frame. Although it helped me to get through the pain until the operation, it has been a very painful process of withdrawal. If possible, an alternative medication would be advisable

Have been taking oxycodone IR 15 mg for almost 3 years now one tablet every four hours for chronic pain. It helps for my back pain. If it was not for this medication I would not be able to work. I have had very few side effects...mainly slight itching. It has helped me so much.

OxyContin (oxycodone): I've been on Oxycontin for 8 months. I take it to help with RSD pain in my shoulder that radiates all down my arm and into my hand. I have trouble taking high doses of nerve medications like gabapentin, so a narcotic is necessary. It definitely helps a lot. However, it does not last 12 hrs. I have oxycodone for breakthrough pain. I also have tried taking 3 doses of Oxycontin a day (per Drs orders) and that keeps it from running out. The problem with a triple dose is drowsiness; I started to have trouble tolerating that. But, overall this has been a lifesaver for me.

Roxicodone (oxycodone): After an injury with a chainsaw. I was put on morphine. It made me feel "thick" & groggy. It also didn't cut the pain. I asked my Dr. To put me on oxycodone & Oxycontin. I found this to be better at reducing pain without the brain fog.

It's helpful when I need a boost in getting work done. When my pain is so unbearable, most times the medicine does not work.

I am prescribed Oxycontin 30mg (oxycodone timed release) 3 times a day and oxycodone IR 5mg 3-4 times a day for breakthrough pain. I suffer from severe trigeminal neuralgia which is horrible pain in the face. They do work really well for pain control. The only issue sometimes is getting my pharmacy to fill them. Some pharmacists look at you like a junkie because you are on pain meds and its annoying. I hate that nonsense! The OxyContin 30mg are soo hard to fill because they are rare and my pharmacy always has to order them which is fine with me. But they do work great for pain. The only bad part is how your body becomes physically dependant on them and you get sick if you dont have them. Its not an addiction but a dependence.Big difference!

I have severe pain due to arthritis and nerve damage. I had broken my heel on my foot. It didn't grow back right. I have had pain ranging from 5 to 8 for 3 years. I was taking tons of Norco for the pain with no relief. Dr switched me to 10mg every 4 hours now I can actually get around. They work great.

Roxicodone (oxycodone): Very effective. I have 3 bulging discs in my neck, 2 herniated discs in my lower back, and torn ligaments in both knees, had surgery on right, the left is next but still very painful, from a major car accident, left me disabled. I take 60mgs Oxycontin 2xdaily and 30mgs oxycodone 4xdaily. And it has been a life saver, thanks to my compassionate Dr. Who understands my chronic pain, I can actually live my life. And take care all my adopted animals that need me.

Very very effective. I take 2 10mg tabs a day with tramadol. I don't know how it would work without the tramadol but I would say pretty good. The only downside is the constipation that comes with most narcotics but it's a small price to pay for a pain free life.

I use 30 mg oxycodone three times a day. It helps with pain and keep me motivated to keep working. I have arthritis and Crohn's disease. The pills keep my pain in control and interesting the side effect is constipation and it helps control my frequent bowel movement. This medication is knocking two issues with one stone. Only bad thing is withdrawal if you run out and didn't get the refill in time. It's not as easy as other meds that has auto refill, always have to get a paper prescription for each refill. But the medicine really helped me for years.

I was prescribed Oxycodone 8 months ago due chronic pain from Lumbar Stenosis and, also, OsteoArthritis of the knees. My prescription is for 5 to 10 mg as needed every 12 hrs for severe pain. So far, this is the only medication that has made a difference. It has made it less painful to walk and move around. I take a teaspoon of MetaMucil or ground Psyllium powder every other day or so to keep my stool soft and regular. My doctor now suggests switching to the extended release version, Oxycontin, but I am hesitant to do so until I do more reading of the experiences of others.

This rating is for the oxycodone medication (30mgs) I have been receiving since Jan 2014. Prior to that, the rating would of at least been an 8! I've tried 3 different manufactures since Jan. without any good or decent results! One was Not only un-effective but also made me itch like crazy! What has happened to the formula? Will it ever be back to the way its been for the last 6 years? This medication made a huge difference in my quality of life! Diagnosed with a spinal cord disease (TM) in Dec of 2000 I experience severe & chronic back pain and after a few years of trying different medications we (Dr & I) found oxycodone 30mgs and during the past 6yrs I take that 4-5x a day if needed and break one in half for the breakthrough.

OxyContin (oxycodone): It is a real shame that the oxycontin ER has been reformulated. I started taking 40 mg 3 times a day 5 years ago after having to quit my job after 45 years of service and going on disability. It gave me so much relief that I was able to do things I was unable to do for a very long time. After the reformulation I went through real bad withdrawals because the medication was no longer as effective as it had been. I finally got through that and now I am struggling with all of the problems I had before I started taking it. I'm still taking it but I am suffering with severe fatigue and can barely get out of the bed in the morning and have very little energy. I can no longer work in my garden or walk my dogs & have to learn to live this way again!

OxyContin (oxycodone): OxyContin seems to work really well for pain. But there is that is a few cons about this medicine for me is that my body would get used to to it and I would need to up the dose. I went from 10mg (2x a day) all the way up to 30 mg (2x a day) It has always only lasted tops 7 hours instead of the advertised 12. It without question has never lasted 12 hours. When I started taking this medicine by the 7 hour my legs would really be on fire again like clock work. So 2 pills would last 14 hours instead of 24 like the manufacturer says. So if you take this medicine make sure you get some breakthrough medicine. Make sure you take Exlax with this medicine. You will be constipated.

OxyContin (oxycodone): I have chronic pancreatitis-cause unknown (I do not drink alcohol). The pain from this disease is constant and severe. I take Oxycontin 30 mg twice daily and it is very effective in controlling the pain and keeping it, for the most part, at a tolerable level (about 4-5 on the 1-10 pain scale). For occasional episodes of breakthrough pain, which can be very bad, I have oral Dilaudid 2 mg. I do not take this often, only when needed. It helps me avoid trips to the ER for pain control. Dilaudid is not often prescribed for home use. I'm under the care of a pain specialist. Neither my GI nor endocrinologist can prescribe schedule II narcotics. Chronic pancreatitis is one of the most painful diseases a person can have.

Best medication for chronic pain. 5 bad lower discs, 1 mid back, 1 removed C6-C7 neck, pinched nerves, sciatica and rheumatoid arthritis. After about a year of therapy and different meds we got to Percocet 10/325 and although not 100% pain free it allowed me to get my life back. Problem I have now is since I've changed jobs and have insurance with Kaiser. Getting a Doctor to put me back on them is almost impossible even with my previous medical records.
