I thought oxy cotton was the strongest. My mom has a tumor on her liver and she is on pain meds but don't she need the one that has less Tylenol?
She should have one with no Tylenol. Percocet and vicodin have tylenol in them. Oxycontin is great for cancer patients. Its not the strongest however. I would say the fentanyl patch would fit that category, with something for break thru pain. If she is having a lot of pain, make sure the drs give her enough pain medicine. Don't let her suffer.
Curious; Was the Dr who prescribed it consulted on his decision to prescribe this?
I agree with kaismama, Fentanyl would be better and for breakthrough pain, Dilaudid. When my dad had cancer they had him on the fentanyl patch and it seemed to help the best.
