Reviews for Oxycodone to treat Pain
OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have suffered RLS since about 5 years of age. Now 78. Nothing would stop it - neurologists tried all usual medication, permoglide, rivotril, etc. Then saw new GP in 60's who also suffered badly and he had in desperation tried oxycontin with great relief. Suggested I tried one 10 mg tablet before going to bed or when travelling as passenger in car - this was intolerable. Found tablet worked like magic and although reliant on it still take same 10 mg but one tablet first thing in morning and one prior to going to bed - about 1 hour before. Found it does not always work at night so I can be up until 3 am walking the floor nearly going insane as pain in legs is so bad. However, 90% of time I do get incredible benefit."

"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."

"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."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "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."

"I'm 20 years old and have been suffering from severe testicular pain for the past 9 months. Not to mention pelvic and groin pain as well, all from a sports injury. While I recover, my Pain Management has put me on Oxycodone 10 mg four times a day (along with extended-release morphine). I can't tell you how much Oxycodone has been a lifesaver when it came to bringing down the severe episodes of breakthrough pain I have. Really lowers it on a tolerable level so I can function! I tried Tramadol and Vicodin prior to this, which provided very limited relief. But I really trust this medication. Highly recommended for any male suffering from severe testicular pain - and any pain patient in general."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I had three surgeries in 3 weeks and oxy really kept the pain under control. I have since run out and the Dr. doesn't want to refill so I'm now suffering along with only Tylenol. :)"

Tried all other types of meds but none made my life worth living again like the oxycodone.. Although I'm prescribed 5 a day I find some days don't need all 5..wish ppl would not abuse meds because have made it hard for the ones who do!"

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I'm 19 years old and have been suffering from severe testicular and groin pain for the past 5 months, due to a sports injury. It prevented me from doing the things I had previously loved doing, I couldn't go back to school, and I'd be in bed all day. But now that my pain doctor has put me on OxyContin 20 mg twice a day, I feel like I'm getting my life back. This medication keeps my pain at bay. Before, I'd be going through an average of 8/10 pain everyday, but OxyContin miraculously brings it down to a 2-3! I really mean it when I say OxyContin is a Godsend for a male who's going through testicular pain caused by numerous problems. Best of all it doesn't make me tired so I can properly function throughout the day!"

"I have been taking Oxycodone 30 mg for about 4 years now. I have chronic pain issues (arthritis, scoliosis, neuropathy, bulging disc, bone spurs and many other pain causing conditions). I also have been diagnosed as having rectal cancer Oct of 2014. I have had only one bad side effect with this medicine and that is constipation. I now take Miralax every day and I no longer have constipation. This medicine does take away the pain. I am glad I no longer take Vicodin as it was wrecking my liver and kidneys because of the Acetaminophenin."

"I recently snapped my fibula in half in a bicycle accident. I went a few days without any sort of real pain medication and was in extreme pain. I went back to the doctors and he gave me this medication. The pain has certainly deceased quite a bit. It helps to take this with food."

"I have been on pain meds for a very long time. (13 years) from an injury at work. I used to take (after years) 5 Oxycontin 8 mg tablets per day which was fine until they changed the formula. They don't really help any longer. I have 4 herniated discs in neck and after 3 surgeries it still is not healed or healed correctly. My neck injury causes me severe headaches as well. I am now on 30 mg Roxicodone which is wonderful for all my pain ailments however it has to be a certain brand. If I don't have the correct brand I will get physically nauseous. I must be allergic to something the manufacturer puts in it. The ones that do work for me have saved my life. I am able to function with pain relief. My opinion they work the best."

"I took my first one tonight, only 10 mg but it has been good on my severe lower back pain. I was on Transtec 50.5 mg patch. But these were not working in the right way or long enough. I hope this new medicine helps."

"I have rheumatoid arthritis and it causes me a lot of fatigue and pain, but thanks to oxycodone, it helps me to keep going. I have been taking it for about seven years but, only regularly since having rheumatoid. I take 15MG about every four hours. I also inject methotrexate and Enbrel once a week."
