I have been prescribed oxycontin 30mg ER for several years due to chronic pain after breaking 10 vertebrae in a serious accident about 10 years ago. Just found out my new health insurance plan will not cover oxycontin 30mg ER. What would be the best comparable pain medicine to oxycontin 30mg ER?
I hope that you got your meds figured out to help your pain. I had an insurance issue where they lost my reapplication and was on Oxycontin ER 20mg 3x day, and as you know cannot afford the cash price, and so the Dr basically gave me 10mg Oxycontin IRs and was able to afford that until it was fixed. Its horrible that Oxycontin is so expensive for verified disabled persons. I understand it being expensive to keep abusers from easily obtaining it, but those of us who suffer true pain are the ones who end up punished. I had a 6x rollover accident and ruptured every lumbar and cervical disc, now I can't be surgically touched to fix the adhered to spinal cord ruptures compressing my spinal cord and stupidly believed a spinal cord stimulator would help relieve some pain and discovered it actually aggravates nerves that are compressed. Good luck to you, I feel for you and hope your pain is better controlled.
