I take 100mg oxycontin twice daily and 10mg oxynorm for breakthrough pain as needed, is this a high dose ? as im still in some pain but not as severe as it has been.
It's a moderately high dose. I would talk to your doctor and tell him or her that you are still in pain. They will probably up the Oxycontin or change you to something else all together. The maximum dose of Oxycontin you can take safely according to the FDA is around 640mg but RARELY will a doctor go that high. I would just recommend being honest about your pain with your doctor and see what he or she thinks you should do. Hope this helps. Good luck to you! Also remember that pain management doesn't always take away ALL the pain. You will still most likely suffer from pain but pain management is to help relive as much pain as possible.
