OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have taken this drug for over 20 years for chronic pain. If I stop 1 person from starting this drug, then this has been worth it. Initially it was the best pain reliever I ever tried. Problem is it is very addictive and stops working. The only way to sustain relief is to increase the dosage. I started at 60 MG and wound up at 200mg. Unfortunately at that dosage over the years causes brain cell deterioration. Remembering things becomes difficult, like family functions. In time you become a walking zombie and numb to everything around you. You will lose interest in life and become drug sick if you Don't take your pill on time. Your relief will no longer be there because it stops working after time. I am off now and have my life back."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Have had chronic pain since I was 14 (now 60). Have tried every RX suggested, multiple pain clinics, too many surgeries to count, exercise, meditation, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, with nothing gained but side effects or increasing tolerance. I have been taking Oxycontin for 10 yrs and have since been able to put the pain on a back burner and get back to my life. The 'pendulum swings' as they say, continued back & forth medical opinions on treatment of chronic pain. The insurance companies now seem to be in complete control again and cost becomes the number one consideration in prescribed treatment. Matters not what my Dr. says or recommends, the cost is such that as of this month I can no longer take Oxycontin. I am so tired, back to bed I go"

For Pain: "I have been using 5 milligram oxycodone 30 milligrams a day for 10 years straight. No addiction issues no craving more it still works. I've got C3 through C6 bulging discs in different directions. I don't crave more I find it if you take it when your body dip takes the pain in other words just because it's 8 a.m. there's no reason to take 10 milligrams my bottle says 10 milligrams every 8 hours for pain. But if it's 6 a.m. I Take 5 milligrams and then I don't need another pill so later as long as I do not ever take more than 30 milligrams in 24 hour. By doing this I've been able to maintain pain relief and not need anymore the medication is still effective. Not all people are addicts"

For Chronic Pain: "For me oxycodone works great. It's not the best drug out there but it helps. I have chronic back pain for over 15 months and finally doctors are letting me try this. For me it helps, it gets me moving, it gets me walking and I can finally sleep. It works really fast . Most of the time within 17_30 mins. Keeps my pain away for over 3 hours which is not bad. I have arthritis in my back plus my spine is narrow. Not much else to say. Oxy helps me 90 percent of the time. I have nothing bad to say about it."

For Pain: "Following my surgery, I was given Oxycodone instead of Percocet "to protect my liver ". Oxycodone had an immediate effect that lasted just 30 minutes, and then the pain returned each time. What was worse is the psychotropic effect of this drug on me. While taking Oxycodone for 4 days, I was depressed, restless and constantly brooding about the ills and suicides of others. Oxycodone was very bad for me, and it's psychotropic and near-hallucinatory components must be exposed. I switched to Tylenol with Codeine and felt back to myself the following morning."

For Chronic Pain: "I have five neurological conditions, spinal and cervical stenosis, depression and anxiety. It took 3 years to find a Dr. in Boston to give me Oxycodone. Works well except for constipation. Took 5 MG's 2 x daily. Can't get them anymore because of addicts. Now bedridden and miserable."

For Chronic Pain: "Hey there, I was on oxycodone 30 mg and oxymorphone 20 mg ER for 7 years . In western New York there has been a horrible problem with these meds in particular. They then tried to switch me to the fentynal patch and percocet for breakthru, WHAT A NIGHTMARE. Dr. was finally convinced to put me back on my oxy s. I could not get out of bed or have any kind of life without them. Going to be back performing again on Broadway this fall. Thank GOD for Oxy's."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I've had myofacial pain syndrome/fibromyalgia for 16 years. Been taking 10 mg oxycontin 3 x/day and 15 mg roxycodone 4x per day. Physician dosed only 18 mg 2x/day. I could feel some pain relief, but lasted only 4-5 hours and I was dizzy the whole month. As dose wasn't high enough, I had to use all my "rainy day" meds saved over time to compensate. Reps need to help physicians better understand the dosing procedure. I too will ask to go back on traditional meds. Also, eating a "high fat" meal first thing in morning is really difficult to face. (Per package insert, high fat meal increases some of the chemicals associated w/ maximizing relief)"

For Chronic Pain: "Scheduled for knee replacement mid March. Surgeon, contacted by me, for extreme pain in left knee making walking, sitting, standing, sleeping, etc. very difficult. He responded by contacting local pharmacy requesting a prescription for me ordered as Roxicodone 5 mg tablets, 40 pills. Have only been on medication for 24 hours and so far have seen NO improvement in the pain level. I have tried everything I know to compensate for the pain but, the pain has increased in intensity. In fact, I'm writing this memo at 6:30 a.m. so as not to wake my husband who is sleeping quite soundly after being up with me for several nights trying everything he knew to help me get to sleep! In addition to the oxycodone, I've tried tramadol and hydrocodone."

For Chronic Pain: "I have been on Mallenkrodt Oxycodone 5 MG for 3 years and they worked perfectly until November of 2016. They've been horrible since then and cause jitters, don't work, cause withdrawal symptoms 4-5 hours after taking them, & are suspiciously bad. The problem is the drug company and Walgreens try to convince people these side effects and sudden drastic changes in the way the pills work are in the head of the patient and bully them into fearing looking like a drug seeker. The FDA also doesn't care if they work right because they want to scare people into not using them. I seriously feel helpless and am so frustrated by the shadiness of all companies/parties involved. Steer clear of Mallenkrodt"

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have stenosis with degenerative disk disease. On low dose and have not had surgery. xtampza is better than not having any pain relief but not by much. Very slow onset, lasts perhaps 8 hours (same as oxycontin) and unpredictible relief depending on diet."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have severe lower back pain. It's mechanical and stretching helps but it's not enough to stop this kind of pain. I started on bupe but it was not enough. I tried Oxycodone at 10mg not helping. OxyContin that lasts many hours at around 40mg works. If I do stuff around the house or walk for a while I need to take 20mg oxycondone on top. I have done this for two years. I think this is a good drug. However, I'm thinking about going back to bupe as the stretching may have helped over the last year. I won't know unless I try."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "For Chronic Pain: I take 40 mg oxycontin 3 times per day. I had c3-c7 laminectomy, fusion, two plates. Degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, severe spinal stenosis, regional pain syndrome, bulging disks at t4-t5 and pinched spinal cord in 3 places with severe nerve damage. I was on Morphine Sulfate 30mg for 3 years, now I take the oxycontin with occasional breakthrough meds. I have found 90% of the time, if I take my meds at the same time every day it works just fine, with the occasional bad day here and there. Overall it has worked well for me. I have been on it for a year now."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Did not notice any relief in pain. I did develop welts on my face, hot eyeballs, itching like crazy, nauseated most of the times. I also felt as though I constantly had the flu. I would like to back on Norco 10/325 x 6/day or oxycodone 15mg /6 day. oh- severe constiptation. Really disappointed!!"

For Chronic Pain: "I have a lot of pain from neck surgery and a list of back problems that have changed my life like so many of you understand. My problem is that I have taken 30 mg a day for 11 years and it just does not work anymore. I can't get a higher dose or a change that might help because its something new. It helped at first but I just want to stay home and do nothing. I feel hopeless for the future and just don't know what to do . No Dr. wants to give these drugs"

For Chronic Pain: "Was given oxycodone about a week ago for severe abdominal pain and let me tell you! The headaches I'm experiencing now are so horrible that I can't function. The pain still is present and I've become nauseated all the time! Going to GI tomorrow and pray they give me an alternative pain medication until they can find out what's causing my abdominal pain"

For Chronic Pain: "I have chronic pelvic pain from endometriosis and chronic back pain (lumbar radiculopathy, spinal stenosis, bulging and dried out discs) that began after tearing a ligament near my spine. I was prescribed one 40mg ER tablet every 12 hours. While it did reduce my pain to a 3 from an 8, it also gave me a horrible headache, made me nauseated, caused me to feel hot, and made me sweat. After only 3 days on this "medicine," I had to stop taking it because I could not tolerate those horrid side effects. The only reason I gave it a 3 out of 10 is that it did relieve the pain, but the benefits did not outweigh the nasty side effects. This stuff seemed like pure poison to me. TAKE THIS MEDICATION WITH EXTREME CAUTION"

Oxaydo (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Absolutely terrible medicine!! Does nothing for pain. Ibuprofen 800 is about the equivalent. Not to mention constipation. Asked to be lowered from these to 5mg regular oxycodone & my doc wouldn't do it. Needless to say I'm in the process of finding a new doctor. If you have a choice between Oxyado & anything else opt for the latter."

For Pain: "I am a 53 year old Mom with an 11 year old daughter. I suffer with lower back pain from L4 disc surgery in Sept '16 and fibromyalgia. Advil just does not touch the pain and it also triggers acid reflux. Hydrodone made me severely nauseous. Oxycodone is the ONLY pain medicine that gives me relief. It does not make me sleepy or cause acid reflux. I DO take a stool softener on an every other day basis to prevent constipation & that works. Previously I had been on it for 2 years prior to surgery for sciatic nerve pain. After surgery I had NO problem weaning off. If you wean slowly, 1/2 pill reduction at a time, it's not an issue. It has been a lifesaver for me."
