Reviews for Roxicet to treat Pain
"I was prescribed Percocet a number of times for surgeries and a bulging disc. The last time I went to the pharmacy they gave me Roxicet and swore they gave me the wrong medicine. It is exactly the same medicine as other oxycodone I have received in the past but did not work the same way (less pain relief). It has to do with the mixers/additives. I see a number of others who have had the same problem. This affects people differently so you might have a trial and error process. For me Roxi equals very little pain relief."

"I was prescribed Roxicet 5-325 for pain relief after major abdominal surgery and I have to say this was amazing! I've never had such complete relief from any medication before. One tablet every 4 to 6 hours kept me completely comfortable. It made me a little sleepy, but that was fine given that I was recuperating from surgery. It would probably not be suitable for me to take while working. The only real side effect I experienced was a little nausea, which I learned to minimize by taking it with food. Overall, the most effective pain medication I've ever used."

"Have leg pain from a pinched nerve and it's not helping much. I also have nausea, headaches and dry mouth from it. One Benadryl usually knocks me out so I would think this would work better but it doesn't."

"Helps more than other medicines that I've tried. It does help, but with everything going on, there's really not much that I've found to take away all of the pain, but at least I can be functional in addition with using the Fentynal transdermal patch."

"I have been taking this medication for 9 weeks now. I injured my lower back and will require a spinal fusion of L5-S1 and L4-L5. I will be waiting for this surgery to get approved for a long time. This medication help quite a bit with all the pain associated with my back, except the nerve pain. Thank God the nerve pain is intermittent. I have noticed that the longer I take it, the less amount of relief time I get. That is to say, when I started taking it I would get about 6 hours of relief. That time started shortening rather quickly down to 2 hours now. My doctor put me on Tramadol at the same time now. I alternate taking 2 of each every 3-4 hours and the relief is amazing. I get about 75% pain relief with that combo, Versus about 50%."

"I've had chronic pain in my shoulder for years which is a result from a pinched nerve in my 5th vertebrae which causes my entire left arm to go numb. Roxicet has made a real difference in my life because sometimes the pain is so unbearable that it wakes me out of a sleep when I don't take them. It get a thumbs up from me."

"This medication has been a life saver for me. I have lived with pain my entire life. Only after the birth of my twins did it become something I could not live with. Every joint and muscle in my body feels like someone is stretching them out with with saver pressure. I am not able to sit still because of the pain but the more I move the worse it gets. Frustrating. I cannot take Advil/Aspirin. I could not live nor take care of a family before this medicine. I have no side effects except RELIEF. I am so thankful this drug has literally given me my life back and I have no side effects good or bad. A "

"Works great. I weigh 250 pounds and require 2 x 325mg tablets every 3 to 4 hours to relieve the pain. Am using to relieve pain due to shingles. Pain has been going on for 6 weeks and is just as bad as day 1. Guess I'll just have to wait it out."

"Roxicet has been extremely effective in relieving my occasional severe pain. Thirty milligrams eases the pain completely and lets me get back to the important things in life, like work or family time."

"As a long time chronic pain sufferer who has tried every preventative drug possible. This medication, whether in the form mentioned here or without the tylenol gives by far THE best, and most all purpose relief - with no side effects at all. It's a pity the press has made many doctors reluctant to utilize this medicine which gave me my life back relieving the most physical pain, and having a good, and not at all depressing effect on brain. I am not speaking of a "high" just the reverse of the exacerbation of depression one often feels when medicines do not work, and have the effect of worsening depression."

"Although Roxicet is identical to Percocet and Oxycodone made by other manufacturers, the tablet is not easily split into two along its score line, and, inconveniently, a sharp, heavy knife must be used if only half a dose is required. Oxycodone marked 512 is easier to use."
