Reviews for Oxycodone to treat Pain
OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have been on Oxycontin for about eight years now, and I rate it as lifesaving. I can assure you that with four spinal surgeries and a failed hip replacement, no other drug including morphine has given me back the quality of life that Oxycontin has."

Roxicodone (oxycodone): "I've been on Roxicodone for about two years now and this is the ONLY short acting medication that has worked. I have been through all the short acting or break through medicines and Roxicodone is by far the greatest. I am on high doses due to having gastric bypass and not absorbing as a 'normal' person would. I need to have my tailbone removed as it's broken and swinging around back there. Not to mention it's broken at a 90 degree angle or angulated. INSANE pain. "

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I've have been in severe pain for 25 years. I've been on just about everything for a back injury and my doctor finally put me on 20mg oxycontin twice a day and hydrocodone 10/650 for break through pain, every 8 hours. I've finally got my life back and my family. God bless the makers of oxycontin."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "My Primary Care Physician put me on Oxycontin for about a year and a half prior to having shoulder surgery. I had recently started a new job and did not have enough leave time to have the surgery. The only reason I survived and was able to work and have a half way normal life with less pain was through the use of Oxycontin. When I was finally able to have the Rotator Cuff surgery, my Surgeon said I would have to be off of Oxycontin for at least a month prior to the surgery because he could not give me anything stronger for pain after surgery and feared I would have a tolerance and that Oxy that would lessen the effect. No problem, I just stopped taking it. That was when the honeymoon was over."

"I have been ill for 40 of my 52 years with my rare condition called Autonomic Nerve Dysfunction(POTS). The pain I suffer from this condition is so bad I roll around the bed in pain , cannot walk and am bedridden at times and am unable to think straight. I started Oxycodone 3 years ago because my pain level reached 10 at times. I take 40mg of slow release every 24 hours (plus other drugs) since another tumor was found. I've added 20mg at night because I cannot lay on my arm until sorted. I DO NOT drive with this in my system, but other than this I've had no side effects. This drug gave me back my life and I can actually smile again."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "In 2000 I had 4 surgeries to repair an anal fistula. The surgeries were successful in that they did repair the fistula but they also left me in severe chronic pain. Pain in the rectum area is very difficult to treat. I've been to numerous doctors in Columbus, where I live and only 2 were willing to prescribe Oxycontin. When I was taking the Oxycontin the pain was much better and I could actually sit down at a desk and do a job. Then the last doctor took me off because I'd been taking them for so long and now I can't find a doctor to prescribe them again. Consequently I'm back to suffering with terrible pain because doctors are afraid to prescribe Oxcontin in Ohio unless the patient has cancer, which I don't."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I fractured my L1 in 2/08 and have had chronic back pain since, in addition I have had 7 knee surgeries. My doctor is recommending knee replacements, but I'm only 36 and in no hurry to have it done. I've tried every kind of pain medicine there is. I found that Norco 10mg worked well but only lasted 3 hours or so and I was developing a tolerance to it. My family doctor finally referred me to a pain management doctor and he suggested oxycontin. I was hesitant at first becuase of the stigma associated with it but decided to give it a try. What a differance it's made in my quality of life. I take 1 x 20mg tablet in the morning and 1 in the evening and live pain free. I still take the Norco for break through pain, but don't need it often."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have been on this medication for about 3 years. I had to go off of due to being pregnant and breastfeding. This medicine has worked wonders. I have tried so many different things and this is the only one that has made it so I can go out side and play with my kids instead of saying not now mommys back really hurts. It was to the point where it was getting hard to get out of bed. So thank you for making it possible for me to function again, and feel normal."

Roxicodone (oxycodone): "I have taken this medication for severe sciatica nerve pain and neuropathy and over all it has been the best pain reliever I've ever taken. Far better than lortab that really does nothing for this type of pain. I also have degenerative disc disease and it helps with this also."

"I have been on several variations of opiate medications since the age of 17, when it was discovered that I had herniated two discs badly in my lower back while training for the military. I am currently 22 and have gone through pretty much every med on the scale ( vicodin, morphine, oxycotin, oxycodone/roxicodone/percocet, hydromorphone, etc.) and I have found oxycodone has worked the best for short to mid term relief. Be very careful with these opiate medications to aviod addiction. Also watch out for the tylenol content, as it can damage your liver long term. Currently taking 30 mg roxicodone 3-4 times a day for 4 damaged lubmar discs and its a great help in getting me through my day closer to normal than it otherwise would be."

Roxicodone (oxycodone): "I have degenerative disc disease and I'm in constant pain. My doctor gave me this medicine and it works very well. I can do now what I could not do before. I would recommend this medicine to anyone in severe pain."

"I have had severe pain for the last 5 years and only in the last 2 years have found out what I have, severe osteoarthritis and sublexating patella. I have been on several pain medications and found that at the moment the best combination is 100mg Tramadol and 10-15 mg Oxycodone and a muscle relaxer every 6 hours. "

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have been taking this drug for two years now. I take a 20mg pill twice a day. I also have 8 norcos a day if needed for breakthrough pain. I have severe Crohns Disease and these medicines have been the best thing that has happened to me. My frequent bathroom trips are now maybe only twice a day. They also help me have an appetite. My major pain results from irreversable AVN of my elbows and knees. Before this medication I could not get out of bed due to the severe pain."

"I've had moderate to severe joint pain for 6 years, now. I was given Propoxy for my back pain, but it didn't take away the joint pain. I was given oxycodone to try, and no more joint pain. I can't take propoxy and oxycodone at the same time, which would make me completely pain free! I have degenerative joint and disk disease, osteoporosis in left hip due to SI joint arthritis, sciatica and depression. I take only a half of Oxycodone."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "After trying all kinds of pain medicines, I was about ready to give up. I was having issues at work, couldn't take care of my kids let alone myself because of the severity of the pain. My doctor decided to try me on Oxycontin and it has been a miracle. I can play with my kids again. My productivity at work has increased three-fold. I am not calling in sick all the time and I am enjoying life. I start clinicals in the fall. Miracle."

"I have degenerative disc disease and arthritis - dads got RA, I probably do to. It is very effective against chronic pain. I can play with my kids and surf. There is no reason to treat this very effective medicine as an outcast. Sure, it can be misused, but for real chronic pain sufferers like myself, its nothing short of a God send. Take as little as you can and still maintain effectiveness."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for 30 years. I have been through all the NSAID drugs, Celebrex , etc, Methotrexate injections, gold shots, Aspirin in mega doses. I finally found a Doctor who understood. He prescribed oxycontin 40mg 3 times a day for my pain. I still have pain, but it is liveable. I am on disability, and am also able to hold a part-time job. I don't struggle to do simple things like take a shower or do the dishes. This medicine has changed my life."

"I am a nurse. I was severly injured in a car crash in 1989. For years I suffered with the pain. Tried Physical Therapy, epidural injections, the works. Have had two back surgeries and three leg surgeries (for reconstruction). In order to function I really needed something that worked. After all of these years, the physician finally put me on this medication three months ago. I am finally pain-free with NO side effects."
