I am still in considerable pain, especially when trying to eat and in the am upon awaking. Is the pill a strong pill?? Is it the same as oxycontin? what are the various doses available? Is there something similar that would be effective?? Do I have to take it for a few days for it to build up to it's desired effectiveness... Consider me a " pills for Dummies " candidate and please give any info you think important I know. THANK YOU... I hope you all feel better soon...
