Could this be due to the fact that i have a stoma, after having the whole of my large bowel removed many years ago.
Oxycodone - Hi I am now taking Oxycodene modified release but find they are not lasting the 12?
good morning. Although I am not a doctor, it seems unlikely your physical condition is the cause for the extended release pain meds not lasting the full 12 hours. This is the most common complaint among patients on opioid therapy. And most doctors do prescribe a breakthrough pain medication to help when the extended release starts losing its' effectiveness. Maybe your doc can prescribe a breakthrough med for you? Good luck to you chris
Hello, Christine is exactly correct. The Dr. can prescribe something for break through pain. You didn't mention what dose of oxy your are on. If it too low that could also cause it to not last. Be sure to check with your DR before you try anything on your own. Oxy is nothing to play with. Best of luck. Tige
