finding that it's just not near as strong mg for mg? I was able to walk the trails before, now on oxyneo, the pain is just to much! I was just wondering if maybe the fentynl patch would be better for pain?
I can totally relate taken 3 x 20mg daily (cotins) to 3 x 30 mg neo's plus now I need breakthru pain meds, gov wont pay for them (neo's) so I have tried (because here in Ontario we r severely limited) hydromorphone ER I got high for 2 hrs and back in pain (wonder bar so what am I to do for the other 20 hrs a day?) and I dont want to get high. So of to a fent patch, tried the lowest dose 12mcg bp went 40% above normal severe headache have to remind myself to breathe and I dont like the high heart rate went right up too... I am not a prude if I want to get high I can smoke a big fattie, i dont need to be high 24 hrs a day cause the ideal of chronic pain relief is just that..pain relief not the "weird out euphoria" that comes with our limit choice's.
I would like to know more about the pain patch also. It's definitely being abused. People actually eat them to get high... Very dangerous and people are dying. This is why pharmacys now want people to bring there patches back after they are used! Some idiots will do anything just to get high and screw up the system for the people who really need it for pain. SAD!
I too was on oxycontin for years. Doctor put me on oxyneo after oxycontin was taken off the market. The difference is like night and day. Oxyneo gives me virtually no relief. I suffer with chronic pain and have for years. Best pain relief is from the Fentanyl patch! I only use the patch in the fall through to spring. Summer he puts me back on Oxyneo. All it does is upset my stomach and I get no pain relief! I sweat in the summer, and have trouble keeping it on, so that's why the pills in summertime. I feel for you, and know exactly how you feel.
Hi I'm a newbie, I took 40mg oxycodone for 20yrs. It seemed to quit working so I asked my doctor if I could try the time release oxy neo 20mg X 2 it doesn't seem to be working at all it seems like it quits working an hour or two before ithe is supposed to. I have had a few unrelated bowl issues so for the last two weeks I have been checking the toilet for blood (unrelated ) well twice I noticed the pills in my stool. I was shocked. Has anyone experienced this?
