For Pain: "I suffered multiple displaced fractures of the 11th and 12th ribs and nerve damage and cartilage damage between my chest wall and ribcage. I get injections into my ribcage every 2 weeks and 10mg oxycodone / apap, 1 tab three times a day. Injury sustained 3/28 and pain is still unmanageable and has me unable to go about my day to day as well as I'm cranky and irritable due to the pain. I was hoping I'd of healed by now. Recently pushed myself way to much and re-injured the same area and had to stop the NSAIDS due to stomach issues. Anyone else experience such severe pain continuing on 1.5 months from original rib fractures??"

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have had a neck fusion and I am herniated from L2-S1, stenosis, 3 bone spurs , bursitis in my hips and arthritis. I live with chronic pain every second of everyday! My pain management dr had me on 30mg Oxycodone 6x a day ,and soma. He started me on extampza ER 18mg. It took a few days before I noticed I wasn’t taking as many Oxycodone because the extampza was helping me. I’m now on 15mg Oxycodone 4x a day and twice a day extampza and I feel great! I don’t want to look and feel high, I’m just looking for less pain. While taking extampza I’ll get a burst of the med which I like Extampza gives me exactly what I need! It’s my “got my life back med” there are some days I’ll only need 1 oxycodone! I don’t like taking meds all day every 4-6 hours this is just 2 a day! I’m feeling great!"

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Xtampza works very well for being extended release. I have half the breakthrough pain and flair up's taking this med. Take it around the clock on time. Be patient with this med and find out what dose works best. It changed my life drastically for the better."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have constant, chronic severe facial pain from a head & neck injury that was recently helped in a major way with stimulator implant surgery in Denver. Still need pain meds but much lower dose. Forced to use this drug thru the insurance company's refusal to continue providing Oxy ER. Was put on Xtampza for about 2.5 months, gained 25 pounds FAST without changing diet, extreme headaches with pressure like never before, every joint hurt. Dr said to maintain 18 mg/2x day dose anyway. Took one more week, gained 5 pounds more, and said enough. Got off it using leftover fast acting, now down to just occasional doses for severe breakthrough pain. Found out all my allergies and general body aches the past 13 years have been due to pain meds and my body's reaction to them so once I'm off, symptoms disappear. Wouldn't have known that without Xtampza, BUT my headaches aren't easing after being off it for a month, plus going off Topiramate. Will these headaches ever get better or is this my new normal?"

For Pain: "Um, I just got a call from my mom. She went to check on my sister and found her dead on her couch. The detectives counted all her meds, doesn't look like she overdosed. I guess we'll find out after the autopsy. The strange thing is, my sister was a recovering addict and alcoholic, I believe she was clean for 2 years. But why am I only now finding out about her Oxy usage. ? My mom knows better. I'm really perplexed as to the reason my mom didn't tell me my sister was taking Oxy for her bulging discs. I guess that's water under the bridge. She was 49. R.I.P. Dawn, I love you !"

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I was trying this medication after being on OxyContin for the last 2 years and after getting on a Medicare advantage plan that didn’t cover the OxyContin. It takes 1-2 hours for the onset of Xtampza and it only last 8 hours at best, usuallly 6-7. Nowhere near as effective as OxyContin for relief of chronic pain for me."

Oxaydo (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Recently I was switched to this version of oxycodone because of all the hoopla with drug addicts abusing pain medication. I immediately had problems with breathing and had isolated pains in my side and under my rib cage. I spoke to the pharmacy and was told that it “probably”wasn’t from this med. However it occurs within as half hour of taking this med and does not happen on other oxycodone versions. The doctor are having their hands tied . There’s absolutely something in the additives that are strongly disrupting my upper respiratory and nasal passages. Believe me, I have never even entered the thought of inhalation or other abuse of this med."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Dangerous erratic medication. Package says to take with same amount and same type of food every dose. How can you do that. I can tell you this for sure. Sometimes it works, sometimes you OD, sometimes it does nothing for the pain. You never know what you will get. This medication is going to OVER DOSE PEOPLE!. You can tell the good reviews on here were written by the drug maker. The only thruth-ful ones sound like this."

For Chronic Pain: "This is the only medication that help alleviate my pain enough to be able to get anything done. The ones of us that use this as directed are being punished in general because of all of the problems now associated with it. So many doctors are now afraid of prescribing the correct doses needed and many of us are suffering. The medicine is not the problem, it's the shady doctors that set up to make money, and also people that don't secure their meds to keep them from being taken by someone that they are not prescribed to. This is so typical of our government to not go after the real problem."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Today went off the Fent for good. Doc prescribes Xtampza. I told doc I will try it but no more patches. If the product does not control my pain it too will be gone. I refuse to pay what I pay for insurance, be is pain 24/7 and not be able to find something to control it. The Pharma game of money roulette is over. The 2 major surgeries with hardware, new L5 disk several thousand over 8 years. Nope"

For Pain: "I take Endone for 4 days every month. 5mg every 6 hrs. I have Stage 4 endometriosis (horrid blood loss, 10 pain from under breast to knees, lower back pain & in rectum) I have 2 hot water bottles, & panadol. The panadol takes the heat from my head & feet. The pain goes after 10 mins. I don't take naprogesic as my blood turns a dark brown colour. Honey, lemon & cinnamon drinks help. I also take Endep. Have had many MVA's mostly neck & lower back pain, but now great after chiro. I have Chronic Myloid Leukemia so I take Glivec & soursop to stay alive. Chinese meds help well for endo. I had to go on endone, as the interactions with Chinese meds and CML are unknown. I prefer Eastern meds, to all western meds. After laproscopy the best is endone & panadol. Morphine didn't work for me. Endone side effects are sweaty head & feet, & I remain bedridden & a sensitivity from crumpled sheets. The withdrawal symptoms are negligible, restlessness."

For Chronic Pain: "This is the only medication I actually get some pain relief from. My Dr. has also prescribed 5mg methadone twice a day along with my 30mg oxycodone - which because of all the people who have abused the drug and turned to the street to self medicate with herion - my dose of 4 a day has now suddenly been reduced to 2 a day and replaced the other 2 with 15 mg oxycodone. Which doesn't help my pain at all. And he said because I am apparently 3 times over the allowed limit( thanks Trump). He said he would reduce my intake very slowly so it would be a less painful. It would take one year or more to have me where he wants my dose. But to me very slowly would not be ⬇️ it by 30mgs off the bat. I don't know if I should be looking for care somewhere else? Or if this is about right?"

For Chronic Pain: "I have chronic pain from Lumbar area, a botched carpal tunnel surgery along with now, Chronic Lyme disease etc. Yes, I got more pain issues. I'm what's known as a train-wreck when it comes to pain. I didn't ask for this, No one does! Dr. notes my back is on his top 10 for the 'worst' ever seen. This medicine allows me to function somewhat. "

Oxaydo (oxycodone) for Pain: "It's oxycodone plain and simple. If you ever had a problem with oxycodone, percocet, etc. In the past, you WILL have a problem with this med. I have been on oxycodone of various forms for nearly a decade and see no difference between this and the others. I am a bit puzzled though, why the FDA can grant approval of this formulation in only 5mg and 7.5mg strengths. Supposedly they got denied an approval to market this med in higher doses."

Oxaydo (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "All this is is oxycodone with extra filler as an abuse deterrent. If you don't respond well to oxycodone, Oxycontin or Percocet, then you won't have a favorable response to this med either as it's the exact same active ingredient. I've been on several different meds over the years but always return back to the oxy because it's hands down, the most effective with fewest side effects."

For Pain: "Oxy is great pain reliever. However, getting off it is really hard to do. I wish I had jut had the pain instead of taking it. It does what it says but too good."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Pain: "Using 20mg Oxycontin x 3 tabs a day, its very good for pain, as good as morphine I believe. At first I felt sick, and puked repeatedly, after 4 days nausea settled down. I been on same dose for 5 years, the way I did it is to expect and live with some pain, if breakthrough occurs then lie down, deal with that and do not up the dose, for the most part it works well. There are no prescribing issues as I am in UK and there's no problem here, and it's OC that I get and not OP. Overall a decent painkiller if used sparingly, try to resist the extra breakthrough meds."

Oxaydo (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been on this for 3 months now and considering the horrible time I had with tramadol, I love this medication. My dr. told me it is a safer alternative to classic Percocet and I would have to say I agree. I have a spinal injury so pain is a constant in my life. This has been a nice balance with pain relief so I can function without feeling drugged up or having horrible side effects. I would recommend this to anyone. I do not "crave" it like I did when I was on regular Percocet. Sometimes I even forget to take it for an hour or so after the specified time. My ONLY complaint is that it is hard to find. 3 times I have had to have my pharmacy order it and wait days without meds for them to get it in."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Not only is this a very expensive medication even with insurance, the 18mg capsule twice a day does not help my pain one bit. What is does help me to have are abnormal, very real, and terrifying nightmares that leave me howling for help in the middle of the night, or yelling myself awake if I lie down for a nap. As someone else mentioned, these dreams are hard to wake up from on your own. Nightmares like half man, half beasts after me, a boat ride spinning out of control down an abyss, inanimate bizarre objects coming to life and after me, odd places I've visited before but haven't. I cannot deal with this, not at all, and I will not take anymore of these. At this point I would rather deal with chronic pain, than chronic nightmares and losing sleep. Acupuncture may be my next step since positively nothing medical has helped one iota. More meds have worse side effects, and cheap generics do nothing. So now what. I give up."

For Chronic Pain: "I was on oramorph in dosages of 50 MG and it didn't help AT ALL. However being on oxycodone changed my life. The dose varies from 5-25 MG and I find it effective. This has been the only medication that worked for me. It is more potent than morphine and has been shown to Improve quality of life for many types of pain"
