The safest way to cut back on your Oxycontin is to talk to your doctor who prescribes the medication for you.
Tell your doctor what you would like to do and why you want to cut back?
Taking less of a scheduled 2 Narcotic is a good goal to have. But it is best to call your doctor to get professional medical advice before doing so.
Also, your doctor knows why & how long you have been taking the Oxycontin.
We as members would just be guessing if it's okay to cut your prescription in half.
Play it safe and give your doctor a call.
Best of luck.
