Taking with or without food? I have read some say take on a full stomach while others say take on an empty stomach. My script reads take either way. I would appreciate any feedback on this question... thank you in advance :)
Oxycodone, what works best for pain relief?
Added 8 Nov 2012:
I have been titraiting from 120 mg oxy and am now down to 37.5 and want to get the most out of the oxy for my pain, as I am not tolerateing my pain very well at all.. thank you, pamee
You can take it either way. I think it works faster on an empty stomach, of course. They recommend that you take it with food if it makes you nauseated. Food can make it a little slower to take effect but I wouldnt say it is stronger one way or the other, it is just a matter of how fast it gets into the system.
Hi Pamee! Guess what? I've never taken oxycodone. Go figure. I wanted to stop and say "Hello." The only thing I've taken even close to oxycodone is vicodin. I can't take it without eating good solid food or taking compazine. I'm a wimp when it comes to vicodin. I'm sure by now, you already figured this thing out and also, our friends gave you personal experience with the med. (Yes, I'm talking about them behind their back:P)
I'm going to pack for Ohio. My daughter and I are leaving the 17th. I haven't done anything yet. eeeek Holly's going to be p--- d! I'll talk to you later and thanks for all your support.
God bless you, Pamee.
