For the last 4-5 years I've been taking 4 5mg oxycodone/325 mg acet. I feel off a 3 story building back in 1982, it took a few years before the pain hit me hard. My pain never goes away totally. Reading a lot of the other Q&A's where people are taking so large amounts, but I'm getting all my medical thru the VA and they told me the 5mg is the max they will give me. In February I see my primary Dr., hoping she increases my number of tabs. Do you think this would help or am I going to tough it out. I've been on social security disability for 5 years after losing my other the road semi driving job.
