Reviews for Oxycodone to treat Pain
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."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have been on oxycontin for about 8 years now and it decreases my chronic neuropathic pain dramatically. I have very few side effects and am glad it helps and makes me able to enjoy life more fully."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I've been taking Oxycotin now for about two years. I've been through just about everything else you can think of due to the 5 ruptured discs I have. Pain blocker, nerve deadening, etc and even physical therapy but I've haven't found anything as useful as Oxycotin. It's been relatively side effect free for me and I can function pretty well day to day because of it."

"I've had 3 aortic aneurysms. The last operation also involved a patch placed over a surgical hernia caused from removal of the two lower ribs on my left side. I've been using oxycodone for the past 4 years and aside from insomnia when I take it in the evenings, I am very pleased with the way it controls my pain. I take it only when I am in pain and limit the dosage to 10 - 20 mgs. (10 mgs per dose, occasionally twice a day). With this usage, I haven't had dependency or addiction."

Roxicodone (oxycodone): "I have severe osteoarthritis and advanced joint degenerative disease. I have been on many different kinds of medicines in the past including Methadone and I think the Roxicodone 30mg. is by far the best. This medicine you can actually function on and be totally out of pain!"

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I'm a chronic back pain sufferer who's endured extensize physical therapy, endless pain medicines, muscle relaxers, antiepileptic/antispasmodics, etc., before reluctantly undergoing surgery - Anterior lumbar fusion with posterior stabilization. Unfortunately surgery failed to relieve the pain. OxyContin's been a life-saver for me (80 mg 2/daily Percocet 10/325 for breakthrough pain)- Nothing short of miraculous in it's ability to allow me to perform daily tasks I was unable to perform previously."

"I have 2 herniated discs and a pinched sciatic nerve in my lower back. My doctor put me on oxycodone 15mg 3x a day. It works wonders, I have had back pain most of my life. I can actually do the things that were hard for me to do before. I don't feel addicted to them either. There are some days I don't have to take them at all and then I have those other days where I can't move. Great drug."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I played football in college and took a severe hit in the back. I now have 4 bulging discs, and 2 deteriorating discs in my spine. The doctors gave me Oxycontin right away knowing the pain I was in. That was 4 years ago and today I take (2)80mg, (1)40mg, and (8)Percocets 10/325's daily. Last summer I was able to run a 5K race. Oxycontin has given me back what was stolen from me in college. I am 90% pain free, and have no regrets about being on this drug. I can't recall ever having any side effects."
