My son has been taking this drug for some time, has MCS and EMI, and now is losing a lot of weight. Found out that he has a thyroid problem. Could taking the drug have caused it? He would love to get off of it, but can't go to a facility because of the MCS and EMI... he's in a delema. Thanks, a concerned mother, Gloria
First I have to ask what MCS and EMI stand for? Is the MCS multiple chemical sensitivity and the EMI educably mentally impaired? He can taper off the oxycodone and do so with little withdrawal and at home. How much is he taking and at what strength?
Whether long term use can affect the thyroid, honestly don't know, but I would be willing to help you with a taper schedule to get off the oxycodone.
