OxyContin (oxycodone): "As a medical doctor with a practice specializing in the management of acute and chronic pain I find, from experience, that this medicine has sufficient pain relieving attributes but in return comes with a high risk of dependency."

"I have osteoarthritis in my hands and back. My knuckles have gotten so big I've had to cut off my wedding band. My job requires me to be on a computer key board 6 1/2 out of 8 hours a day. Without this I may not be working!"

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I suffer from degenerative disc disease. For years I was unable to live a normal functioning life. My Doc had me taking 4/10mg Norcos & 4/30mg Morphine pills daily. While they gave me some relief, I was still in a great deal of pain and felt like I was taking pills all the time. I spoke to my Doc about my continuing pain and the constant pill popping with minimal relief. She told me about Oxycontin. She said that she didn't normally prescribe it and only had one other patient on it but, I could try it to see if it gave me any better relief. I take 3/40mg Oxycontins daily now and the difference in my life is amazing. I hate the way people treat me when they learn that I am taking Oxy. It works wonders so get off our backs."

"This medicine works like heaven. I was taking other medicines and was on pain all the time. Ever since I started taking 30 mg oxycodone I'm back to my normal lifestyle, pain free."

"It is our RIGHT to have medication available for our use. My advice is to use correctly. After several years of increasing my own doses to 20/day (7.5/200 vicoprofin). I decided to quit or die of an O.D. So I went to a specialist who deals with detox using Suboxone or Subutux. Either one will help if you are worried about withdrawals."

"Awesome for pain. Withdrawal is disgusting. The worst stomach flu you have ever had times 10 plus depression. If you only plan on taking it for a couple of days great. For long term NOT GOOD! Please be careful very very addicting."

"I just had my wisdom teeth removed, and I haven't really had any pain. The medicines do make me feel a bit dizzy and tired, but it's really not too bad."

"I've been taking oxycodone 5mg x6 daily for about a year now for fibromyalgia and back pain and it works wonders. Without it my day to day would be impossible. I have a small child to look after and taking this medication has given me the ability to live and function normally. My average pain level is 4, without medicines it would easily be 8 or 9 maybe even reach 10. Wonderful drug, DO NOT take if you are easily addicted to things, if so this drug to do a lot of damage. Please be careful."

"Had an accident in 2004. Had disc replacement in neck, and rotator tear left arm. Been on every medicine that's out there and nothing works. Until now. It's been a blessing to not hurt all day and move around without the pain all day."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I am 58 yrs old. In my teens and early 20s I played sports and have had numerous spine injury's. So far I have had 5 spine surgery, Radiation for cancer. I have lived with constant pain that is unbelievable. My quality of life was poor to say the least although I have be very active in hunting and fishing sports despite the pain. This drug is a life saver, any and every drug can be misused, the government has the Doctor community afraid of their own shadows on this drug, but properly used for folks like me it has no equal. My quality of life without this drug would be zero, side effects are there but manageable. If you are living with severe pain, seek out a Doctor that with prescribe this drug for you, and monitor you for the side effects."

"I am a 3 yr Breast Cancer Survivor and I got severe nerve damage from the waist down from the chemotherapy. I was to the point of taking two 10/500 Vicodins up to 3 to 4 times a day. I am now on 10/650 Oxycodone and it's wonderful! I am a hairdresser and without this drug I could not walk. During chemo I was on the liquid oxy and it works in about 15 minutes. The pills take about 1/2 hour to 45 min. Great Drug!"

Roxicodone (oxycodone): "This medicine has worked wonders on my chronic back pain. I have tried everything from Tramadol to Opana ER and for the price Roxicodone 30mg tops them all if taken as prescribed, and at the same time each day. The only downfall is that you must take the pills more frequently than say MS Contin or Oxycontin where you only need them every 12 hours. However that was my main problem with the Opana, Oxycontin, Etc., they didn't seem to last the full 12 hours as advertised. I was lucky if I got a good 8 hours from them."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have chronic severe back pain from an injury at work. Fractured my T12 and messed up my lower back and a pinched nerve. I have been through Physical therapy, nerve blocks. I am now on Oxycontin 10 mg 3 x's a day, Vicodin 5/500 for break through pain (I take about 4 in 24 hours), Neurontin 300mg 3 times a day and Paxil for depression. Before being placed on all of the above my pain level was at 8-9. Now my pain level is 6-7 except if it rains or is cold then it's a 9. I'm still unable to do anything. Pain increases with any activity despite the medicines, plus I feel faint when I stand up, brain is foggy, poor memory. Hear common noises that I mistake for something else like singing or talking."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I am so very pleased to read all of these reviews. I have been on Oxycontin for just over a year. After one cervical and two lumbar fusions my ortho doctor refused to prescribe anything stronger than Percocet. He referred me to the pain clinic and I am so very lucky to have a knowledgeable doctor. Oprah had a show on prescription drug addicts today (my family all have issues with this medication). I would like to see someone brave enough to stand up for all of us in chronic pain that HAVE to take this medication to simply function. I take 60mg 2x's a day and have felt guilty that is until I happened upon these postings. Now I feel like I can ask my doctor to up my dose one more time so that I can get the full benefit of the medicine."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "Been on this medication for three months now. Having problems with having to urinate in the middle of the night. Also, can't sleep an entire night and the mood swings are unbelievable. Pain wise, it does a good job."

"I don't care what most say, this is the best pain reliever I have ever had for my chronic pain. No other medicine works like this does. Only problems I ever had with it was the one time I ran out a day early and I had some withdrawals so yes it will give you withdrawals but if you are taking the right amount and doing what you are supposed to, and have a good doctor, that won't be a problem. This is a great drug for people that follow directions and are in severe pain. After a year or so, you will get too used to it, that's when you go on something else for a week or bare the pain and take ibuprofen and then when the week is up it will work again. That's how great this drug is, it works again in a few days!"

"I took Oxycodone 325mg, every 4 hours after my facial surgery. They worked very well and had to stop taking after a few days for the effects of controlling the pain where to much for me, I went to regular Tylenol afterwords."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I'm on Oxycontin 10 mg a day, 4 x 10 mg percocet a day, 1 Soma a day. Have bulging/herniated L45 disc, as well as small annular tear on L5S1 disc. The problems on those discs...Without the pain-killers, I would be suffering everyday."

Roxicodone (oxycodone): "I was taking Oxycontin after 2 shoulder surgeries, then I was in a bad auto accident. Even upping me to 80mg 2 x daily wasn't enough. My doctor suggested the Oxyfast for breakthrough pain, so I tried it. This was the only combination that took away all my pain, so I could work and care for my family. Then Oxyfast was removed from the market and my doctor put me on roxicodone. It doesn't work nearly as fast as the Oxyfast which worked in under 10 minutes, this takes 30 minutes and works almost as well. At 29 yrs old I thought my life was over, but these medications gave me my life back. If it wasn't for these medications I don't know where I'd be now (10 yrs later). I have kidney and liver function tests done 2 times a year with no changes from day one."
