Reviews for Oxycodone

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have 4 herniated disc in my neck, two failed right shoulder rotator cuff surgeries, back surgery on L5 and esophageal cancer that has not spread (thank God). I'm starting on Xtampza ER in a few days for this chronic pain and was very nervous however, it's time. I was taking four 15mg oxy IR. Down to four 10/325 Percocet and will now be trying two x 18 Xtampza plus one break through. After reading some of the real comments from people switching to Xtampza, that the drug actually works I feel more confident. I will report back once I'm taking to give full and honest report. I will give honest report back as I'm not looking to get high - I just want to manage the pain so I can live a sub par but somewhat normal life, what I have left. Good luck to all of you with your pain management issues"

For Pain: "I played Racquetball almost 50 years. Played pretty aggressively. It kept me in shape for my work level. But, I had operations on both knees, one shoulder and the other shoulder needs an operation. Racquetball is always rough on feet. It's been over 10 years since knees were operated on and they need the knee replacement operation. Oxycontin is the best pain reliever. No tylenol or advil since I have had my limit on those drugs Tylenol and Advil are a killer to the body anyway. The nurse at the PM tells me that different people will have a drug that works best. Mine is Oxycontin....the pain is relieved and you are not impaired."

For Pain: "I have had sciatica for 15 or so years. Went to neurosurgeon, actually 3 and was not convinced surgery would help. I have a leg length discrepancy and my tail bone didn't form correctly. I tried everything. P.T. Chiropractor nothing helps. Tried Gabapentin it just made me exhausted. Oxycodone has worked for me."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "After years of trial and failure to control the chronic pain this med has done what none other has. I been on 150mg lyrica 3/day, Morphine ER, fentanyl patch, and many other meds for over 15 years. All those other meds became ineffective and offered little relief. Now, 2 months into twice daily use of xtampza I finally have a new baseline. Though I still take other meds and a breakthrough pain killer occasionally I don’t feel as though there’s no help. It’s not cheap, and my various prescription coverage still didn’t cover all the costs. I still firmly believe I’m better off with this medication and if offered to others it may be what you’ve needed for a long time."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I was just switched to Xtampza ER, took my first dose this morning. My doctor did not mention food at all but I always read about the meds I take. In BOLD they say to take this Med with food. If you take it in the morning before eating you will get maybe half the dose. The oral bioavailability goes up by as much as 150% with a high fat/high calorie meal. I called the manufacturer but they were unable to tell me exactly what is a “high fat/high calorie meal”. I ate some walnuts, two slices of Ezekiel bread toasted with butter and about a cup of Promised Land chocolate milk. They also say that you should eat the same amount of food with each dose to maintain even blood serum levels. My guess is it is this lack of knowledge that is causing some patients to find this drug ineffective of erratic. I’ll probably settle on 1/4 cup walnuts, couple of eggs (boiled) and maybe a Boost Plus (or chocolate milk). In any case it seems to be working."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "In a word...awful. I've been on 2x18mg Xtampza ER for over a month now, after my sadistic insurance co refused to cover Oxycontin, which I've been taking 2x20mg since 07 for severe pelvic floor pain. While Xtampza designed to avert abuse, it most definitely IS NOT designed for any credible chronic pain relief. First and foremost, it's doing very little for my pain. It takes FOREVER, like 2+ hours(!) to work, and lasts 3-4 hours, at best. I'm being generous saying it "works", since it barely takes the edge off my pain. I still have to take breakthrough meds, even while this junk is supposed to be in full effect. I regularly experience strong side effects described by other reviews, including headaches, nausea, sleeplessness and high anxiety. It's amusing to hear the claims of this med being "exactly the same" as Oxycontin - the one thing that actually worked."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been on opiates for 15 years now, because of a degenerative condition on my C5 and C6 disks, and a sterno-clavicular joint with constant sub-luxation and arthrosis. 3 years ago I was prescribed Oxycontin 20mg 2xdaily and for breakthrough pain I simply chew 1/3 to 1/2 of a 20mg Oxycontin tablet. Less side effects than morphine and much better pain management combined with Celecoxib and Paracetamol. I do not overmedicate when I do not need it, since I had such bad experiences with tramadol addiction, that stuff was vile. Sometimes I take it a few weeks in a row and pause when I can to lessen the habituation and I never will get dependent. 42 pieces of 20mg Oxycontin tabs is enough for like 2 months of quality life as it very effectively takes the edge of the pain that I have every time I am standing or being active for more than a few hours in a row. Besides some pruritus (itching) from time to time and the occasional constipation I get from Oxycontin all is well. A 8+ out of 10 from me !"

For Chronic Pain: "I had an unfortunate automobile accident two days before my daughters wedding, that changed my life. I have been taking Oxycodone for chronic pain in the neck, shoulder, disc. Last year the clinic drug tested me and accused me of not taking the meds, they said I was selling them. Since then they cut me back to two 20 mgs a day from four 20 mgs a day, could you imagine what I have been through, they increased it back to three 20mgs a day, but I have to take tylenol and 800 motrin to control the pain. The oxys last about 3 hours. I hate the government for what they have done to us chronic pain sufferers. We need a voice to protest, because they are making everybody suffer due to the overdoses of many."

For Chronic Pain: "For years I have taken a small round green pill known as oxycodone 15 mg but I recently had my script filled and have a new manufacture by Rhodes that is a white oblong pill and it does not help at all for my pain"

For Chronic Pain: "Other than being a surviving multi-system, multi-trauma patient with chronic pain from breaking my neck, back, and compound fractures both of my legs from a forty (40 ) foot fall off a ladder, I’m a healthy 56 year old guy! Lol Unfortunately, after getting this pill, yesterday, for the first time, from my pharmacist, I found them far too small for my bear paw fingers! I take 5-8 at a time. Just while counting them out this morning for the first time, I dropped 3 of them! I can’t have that happening with 7 dogs roaming our household! I’ve already notified my pharmacy. As for the medication itself, it did what it was supposed to do, which was to take the edge off of my extreme discomfort! Thank you. Please stay safe, healthy, sane, and sober. Peace"

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I am a 62 year old mom of 5, wife for 35 years. About 20 years ago I was being treated for chronic bilateral back pain with sciatica, herniated disc, lumbar degenerative disc disease. That being said, I was prescribed 80 mg of Oxycontin 3 times daily with Oxycodone 30mg immediate release for break through pain. It was life saving!!!! I was able to function, work at our business, take care of my family and do everyday tasks. Now, because of the "OPIOD CRISIS", my Dr. tells me, I no longer can take this medication, and has taken me down to 30mg of Oxycontin 2 times per day and 20 mg Oxycodone up to 2 times daily! BTW, since the very first diagnosis I described, I now have Scoliosis of thoracolumbar spine and postural kyphosis of the thoracic region. So, from someone like myself, I don't abuse, sell, or give out my medication, why do I along with so many people like me, have to be taken off a medication that offers them to live a somewhat productive life with almost bearable pain???"

For Chronic Pain: "Medication seems weak. For what it is it's not up to the task. I have had 10 mg tabs made by Sun Pharma, Red in color that have more analgesic affect. It's not tolerance. I know the difference. These are not up to par. Like a placebo !"

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been on Xtampza ER 18mg 2x a day, also on oxycodone 10/325 3x daily. This morning I thought I would try something different. Acetaminophen boosts oxycodone, so I said to myself that tylenol probably would boost an extended release for of oxycodone and guess what, 0% Pain. I take 1.5 oxycodone and 1 xtampaza ER and another tylenol capsule, extremely loopy but wow does it help. I take for Broken disc, herniated disc, torn ACL, torn Rotator Cuff and Vascular problems as well. Just take 1 or 1.5 Oxycodone and one 500mg tylenol with the xtampza."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Very disappointed. Was on morphine sulfate 100mg. My doctor wanted me to try Xtampa. Not impressed. They just gave me headaches and stomach pain with no relief from my chronic pain, plus with insurance it cost me $273.00 will not use this again."

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Been on and off of it for intractable pain and trigeminal neuralgia for 10 years . I was taking 30 mg every 4 hours or 6×day. That work for me for a long time until my doctor of 14 years retired and it's been downhill from there. Now I'm only prescribed 30mg 3 times a day and thinking about what are the options I have because when you're on these drugs for so long you don't have adequate relief or adequate medication it just leaves you and I state of withdrawal and increased sensitivity to pain"

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "My doctor prescribed OxyContin after I'd been hit by an 18 wheeler, rolled down an embankment, and fractured my spine. I'd been taking high doses of acetaminophen for years and had liver damage from Halothane gas and then acetaminophen. He wanted me to take a single dose opioid so that I wasn't taking more acetaminophen. Taking OxyContin was incredible. For the first time in years my pain was under control. I took it for 3 years... Until the "guidelines" went into effect. I successfully weaned myself off with no help and without incident. However, I've been bedridden for over two years because I've now exhausted all other things that have been suggested. Injections quit working, I've been to PT numerous times, taken anti seizure meds, psychotropic meds, and now I've given up. Unfortunately, I'm back to high doses acetaminophen just to take a shower or sit up and chat for 1/2 hr. "

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Moved and had to change Doctor Was given Xampza twice daily I have found this medication horrible. It does not work on a consistent level, any relief that it gives it quickly fades. 12 hour relief is a joke, maybe 6-7 hours. B/P has gone up, needed to increase my Atenolol 25mg. Nausea soon becomes a constant companion with headaches to add to original chronic pain. This has been my experience, I also see many others have issues with this medication."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. It spread to my bones and lungs. I started with morphine and it just didn't hold the pain. My doctor then changed my prescription to Xtampza ER 13.5. That didn't hold for 12 hours. Went to 27 ER. It held for about 6-7 hours. If anyone has stage 4 breast cancer and are comfortable please let me know."

For Pain: "Another effective med if only used occasionally so tolerance stays low and side effects are avoided. 10 mg is my 'big gun' if ibuprofen won't touch the pain."

For Chronic Pain: "Oxycodone has been kind to me. I have suffered no side affects that I am aware of. I take my meds as prescribed and it works well for me. At times I have to take Tylenol with my oxycodone. I am allergic to NSAIDs so it is important to keep my pain under control safely."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I've been a chronic pain patient 5 years now. doctor said try Oxycontin. It would last longer. Tried it for a week. Bad Choice for me as my pain in morning was a 10 but after trying this pill pain dropped to a 7 which is not terrible but it's not good. Pills were supposed to last 12 hours nope. Bed time took pill and it helped me sleep. But I would wake up five times a night scratching myself. I think Oxycontin bad choice. The oxycodone fast-acting pills work better because they work super fast. Oxycontin not what advertised. I expected more out of this medication. I need fast acting meds period. I would say give Oxycontin a chance may work for you but don't get your hopes up like I did. On top of that most won't cover it because of the government. The government is pushing back and do not want anybody on these powerful medications And I can't afford to pay out of pocket at $3000 per 100 pills. that just can't happen and that is just way too much money . Especially if on Medicaid or Medicare that are disabled."

For Chronic Pain: "I have lumbar and sacral issues due to an injury sustained in an auto accident in 2012. I have degenerative disc disease and 3 herniated discs. Oxycodone has made it easier to live a life and keep my dignity as I was nearly bedridden for a year. I have a p-450 cytochrome issue. I'm currently on oxycontin er 15 mg twice daily and oxycodone 10 mg three times daily for breakthrough pain. I currently take the kvk tech brand (they're little pink pills) I've had different generics and they are not created equal. amneal, aurobindo, camber, rhodes, mallinkrodt are complete garbage and have more side effects than you can shake a stick at. My top three are Kvk tech, qualitest and alvogen in that order. I have had radioablation therapy, injections, massages, acupuncture, tens unit, the whole 9 yards just about. I had a fusion two years ago and don't have the best mobility but I am able to function and play with my children and go on walks with my wife and I couldn't ask for anything more."
