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."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have chronic back pain from degenerative disc disease. I have disc herniations from L-2, L-3 down to L-5, S-1; along with spinal stenosis-different moderations depending on the disc and spinal arthritis. To answer someone's question about how many OxyContin 80 ER pills can be prescribed per day. Legally, the answer is 4- 2 in the morning and 2 at night-which is what I receive; at one time they made 160mg OxyContin but they are no longer produced in the US. To whomever said they were prescribed 8 of them a day- illegal or not from the US. It is an extended release medication meant to last 12 hours. I will be the first to say when they switched to the new for Formula, I didn't feel as though they were as effective and went from 2-4."

For Chronic Pain: "I've been taking oxycodone for roughly 5 years....I've gone a few weekends without it before because I've ran out but never experienced any withdrawal symptoms. It works great if you take it exactly when you need to and don't exceed your prescribed amount or take it early. I've been living with chronic pain for years...have had a complete joint replacement on one side and and anchor placed on the other side of my jaw. The surgeries help immensely but I'll still always be in pain. Been taking the same dosage of 10mg 3x a day for the 5 years and yes my body is used to the effects so it doesn't work as well but it works well enough and I refuse to take a higher dosage or more pills per day because...well let's face it..this medicine is scarey"

Oxaydo (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "HORRIBLE medication. This is my first review for anything but I felt I had to say something. I was on oxycodone 10/325 for years for chronic pain and never had a problem with side effects. Since being on Oxaydo, from day one, I've felt sick. Stomach pain and burning, nausea, constipation, horrible headaches and bouts of dizziness not to mention I'm in more pain now than ever. I've barely left the house since I started this crap. While I think an abuse-deterrent is a great idea, something is not right with this medication."

For Chronic Pain: "I suffer with severe chronic neck and back pain from herniated disc, lumbar lateral recess stenosis, cervical stenosis, osteoarthritis of the facet joints, and nerve damage etc. This medicine gives me better quality of life than I wouldn't be able to live if I didn't have it. It gives me the ability to get up and have a somewhat normal day as as normal as it will get without this medicine I would be bedridden"

For Pain: "I have been on 4-5, 15 mg oxycodones a day for the last 2 yrs and I finally have my normal life back. The prior 12 yrs I was in and out of the ER and hospital more than I can count, I just know in 2014, I was in and out a total of 14 times, with a GI surgery and in 2004- 2006 it was about 128 days total with a surgery. I have a very odd birth defect in my GI system. Without the pain killers, I would end up in the ER 1-9 days every couple of weeks with level 10+ abdominal pains that would cause uncontrollable vomiting for more than 11 days at a time. No fluids would stay down, nothing. I would be bedridden to the point the paramedics would have to come carry me out the house to the ER."

For Pain: "I take these occasionally for breakthrough pain, but I am prescribed tramadol for everyday chronic pain. I get almost instant relief from oxycodone and when its been about 30 minutes its completely effective, the pain is completely gone, which is a little different than tramadol. Tramadol takes about an hour to kick in. In my own experience I strongly suggest you understand the extreme risk of addiction of this drug, I know too many people that decided they were done with oxycodone for something more potent, and develop some dangerous (and very sad) habits. If your doctor wants to prescribe it, ask questions about the drug and don't take more than prescribed by your Doctor."

For Chronic Pain: "I have been taking oxycodone, 15mg tabs, 4 times a day, for a couple of years, for severe joint, neck, & back pain. My Doctor says this is the maximum dose for the drug. I am a 300 pound, 5' 6'', 75 year old, male. The medicine works at about 85% to 90% level, for about 4 hours for me. I think I need to increase the dose to every 4 hours or 6 hours a day or move up to 20mg tablets."

For Chronic Pain: "I can't believe reading about people taking dosages above 10 mg. I had 3 back surgeries and 45 radiations. My entire back is rods and screws. I never took more than 7.5mg. Twice a day. To hear someone needs 60mg is crazy. Unless your on your death bed. I couldn't even imagine getting more than 20mg"

Roxicodone (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Itchy, itchy! I've found opioids analgesics are the best for my chronic pain. Roxicodone caused pruritis for me. That might not seem like a big deal. However, when dealing with pain that's been constant for years, a side effect like non stop itching is one more thing that magnifies the pain. Then there's pain, itching, and more loss of sleep. There were a couple of remedies. The doctor rxing a different medicine. Or taking an antihistamine to overcome the itching. In today's current anti-opioid environment, doctors seem more likely to throw up their hands, and say, "Well I guess you're just not a good candidate for opioids!" Which just isn't true. Switching worked like a charm for me."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been taking Oxy ER 20mg 3x day plus up to 8 Oxy IR 5mg for the past 7 years. It has been a Godsend for me. I was in bad car accident in 2008 in which I suffered from a bruised spinal cord plus it worsened already bad Degenerative Disc Disease,Arthritis and Spinal Stenosis. In June 2009 I had a spinal fusion on my neck levels 5-7. After both I was left with horrible arm , shoulder and neck pain and mobility issues in my neck. I work a lot on the computer and meeting with people, If not for the medication I would not be able to work. I still have some pain but it is more of a tolerable background pain instead of a full nerve toothache Please folks use responsibly, many of us need it to live and function. I worry it will go away"

For Chronic Pain: "I've been taking Oxycodone, 60mg every 4 hours pretty much around the clock now for several years. I've been lucky and haven't suffered bad side effects. I've suffered from severe back pain from trauma, (car accident), 2 hip replacements, & most recently & worst of all RSD/CRPS from shattering my wrist last year. My doctor says that Oxycodone does'nt work for nerve pain, only musculoskeletal pain. I think it takes the edge off so I can function. Otherwise I'd be curled up in a ball in the corner somewhere. I tried Gabapentin and Neurontin but the side effects made me crazy. My doctor says that I'm on too much every month when I see her, and because I am addicted, I'm afraid she'll take me off the medication. It just works too well for me."

For Chronic Pain: "I have displaced discs and chronic disc degeneration and chronic pain throughout my cervical spine with shooting nerve pain all the way down through my buttocks and arms. Taking Oxycodone helps tremendously. Works well with Neurontin. Sometimes need to take a Naproxen to keep ahead of the pain, and anyone with chronic pain knows that you will never always stay ahead of the pain. A word of advise: don't overdo it and get up to a higher dose if you can help it because getting back down to a lower dose means that you will have to "vacation" and experience horrible pain to get the tolerance controlled again. That said, Oxycodone is a wonderful medication. Please don't use this recreationally. Real sufferers need this medication."

For Pain: "My sig other was being given roxy 30s daily by his friend and partner at work. His wife and he were both prescribed 180 a mo. At first my man was flying he worked 8-18hrs a day on call for weeks at a time on top of his 40-60hr schedule. it was insane. Then his friend started smoking them and didn't have the extras very much anymore. This is where HELL came into our life. My man was addicted no script. He was miserable sick and in fear of the awful sickness that loomed constantly. He was mean. They both deteriated and lost their jobs eventually. It ripped our family apart. When my guy was let go he payday loans so deep they took his entire paycheck. His friend died on his bathroom floor last year. Our family was torn apart."
