I want to stop taking oxycodone, but I dont know how. I am affraid to tell my Dr. that I am running out a week before because I need this drug in order to work. With out the medicine I could never work. A few months ago a new Dr. that I have will only let me take 4 per day and after being in pain management being prescribed 6 per day, I have been having trouble only taking 4 and keep running out. I dont know what to do and I have to work to make ends meet.
