... day without any fears & pain,I have been off & on pain meds since 1986,before i ever was taking this drug i would always avoid friends & family,but when i take them i seem to come out of my shell,I don't abuse the drug at all,could my body be missing a chemical in the oxytocin family? This has puzzled many Dr.'s that i have seen and they will only prescribe for about 2 years then push on to another Dr. for fear of the DEA coming down on them.Any help here please... Mike... I have also had 3 operations on my back on the L5-S1 Vertabre... also the Dr.'s would do Chem19 on my blood and everything came back normal another thing the Dr.'s couldn't figuare out. 1 Dr. told me it's like i could oxycodone for the rest of my life and be fine and not have a problem with,compared to someone who takes asprin everyday and still has a heart attack or get's cancer,
Hi mike, you are just more concentrated, no aches and pain to distract you. Plus opiates up the feel good hormones in your body, that will elavate your mood. Big decision to discontinue pain meds, but you are in the right place. Let us know how you are doing or anymore queastions.-K
So what you are really saying is the doctor that agreed to give you the meds you need for pain was killed in a plane crash, & since you no longer have insurance it realy does't matter becuse you can't afford ro get a script because of no insurance. Is this right? I had a similar experience with my old pain management clinic with the FDA/DEA coming down hard on them. I went to my PCP doctor, & he got on the phone until he found a doctor who wasn't scared of the FDA/DEA in script writing. My previous doc had me on Methadone for chrontic pain(it's a long story)& initinally agreed to take me off of it & put me back on the 4 to 6 hour meds so I could function. I suffered badly with chrontic pain weaning myself down to a dose where I could switch, but by then the FDA had scared the pants of of them too & they said they didn't write any pain meds for 4 to 6 hour pain meds. Only long acting -slow released type drugs. So I did the taper & suffer horrendoulsy for nothing! I was given Embeda (which was pulled from the market 6 weeks later)& had a terrible allergic reaction to it & was told the next day well then I would have to go back on methadone, but only 1/2 the original dose! Poo on them! I have a new doctor for my pain management now who has me on oxycodone 15mg every 4 to 6 hours as needed.I also am on lyrica for my fibro pain. I don't know what to tell you about getting help without the insurance. Their are patient assistance programs with the drug company's, but I'm not sure about with pain meds. Maybe Maso would know Hope he comes on here & tries to help you out. If you can't work, can you get state aid program help you with some of it?Just some thoughts...

I've been taking 15mg oxycodone 3x for several years. My Dr recently raised me to 20mg oxycodone 3x.
