Reviews for Oxycodone

Sort by:

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."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Only thing that actually worked on my chronic back pain and for broken collarbone. Too bad idiots make it harder on those of us who actually need pain relief."

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"

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Medication takes 3-4 hours to work no matter what you eat while taking it. When and if it starts to help with the pain, it stops in 3 or 4 hours. Sometimes it comes on so strong that I have a panic attack. I figured I would adjust to it, but after a month I have not."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been on pain meds since Oct, 2007. Just started Xtrampza ER and it takes 4 hours to work then it hit's hard, break into a bad sweat and in 3.5 to 4 hours it stops working. This should be taken off the market."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I suffer from severe, chronic back, neck and shoulder pain. This is one of the worst medications I've ever taken. The nausea and dizziness is awful. If that were the only negative side effect, I think I could live with it though. What I found extremely disturbing was the psychological effects. After only two doses, I had terrifying nightmares that were difficult to awaken from. I, uncharacteristically, felt like Alice in Wonderland in an extremely unpleasant manner while I was awake. I can't believe this medication is on the market. Not to mention, it did absolutely nothing to help with pain."

For Chronic Pain: "I have been on oxycodone for 4 years. I was in a bad car crash with many broken bones. My right collar bone was splattered in such a way as to do nerve damage to my right hand and both feet. My feet are on fire 24/7 as if I were sitting to close to the fireplace. I take three 10mg per day. The current government has now made it impossible for me to get any more, because of the junkies. If I don't get it ...the burning is indescribable. I CAN NOT TAKE THIS PAIN IT IS 24/7...and never lets up. I never take more than prescribed dose..."

For Chronic Pain: "N.Y. allows the extended release form only to treat chronic pain, and it doesn't work at all! It USED to, and now it doesn't. Internet said it is because the pharmacological formula was changed, making it less effective and less attractive to addicts."

For Chronic Pain: "I was treated for my chronic pain for 17 yrs with oxcodone. Now at age 65 my very intelligent physician in Phila.DEA shut his small office down. I have no medical records ,without proof of failed surgeries & damage to my body I’m left to suffer in bed and to lose weight .I only have a life of unmanaged severe chronic pain & insanity.My GP does nothing to help my suffering. The DEA must stop their uncontrolled actions to close all knowledgable dr who know that the older Citizens are suffering till death "

For Pain: "This is a double edged sword. When I was 13 years old and had a nasty fall and my tibia and fibula sustained compound fractures. My surgeon ordered oxycodone/apap for the first couple weeks, and I took it when I was really hurting and it was useful. A year later I had to have my ankle growth plates closed as the legs were not growing in sync. So I was in 2 casts, and the new surgeon wrote for the controlled release/Oxycontin and breakthrough immediate release. And multiple orders with lots of these and increasing doses turned into a time bomb. I'll be on buprenorphine for the rest of my life now, and I think that this drug is useful sometimes but overprescription has created a crisis. Be careful when you need this drug."

For Pain: "Been on it for 28 years and it has gave me my quality of life back. I take Morphine and Oxycodone and if it wasn't for the meds I would be in a wheelchair and unable to function and in a nursing home and lose my quality of life. Best thing that I have taken that kept me going this long and able to do what a normal person can do but still have restrictions."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Severely hurt my neck all the way to my lower back. Was recently prescribed 30mg IR twice daily. I want to say this: For people suffering tremendous excruciating pain it is an amazing excellent medication because it takes my pain away right away. However, for me it is way to strong and can’t function on it and when taken at night I can’t wake up in the morning. I have made an appointment to go back to my doctor and go back on Vicodin. To anyone reading: please don’t abuse or take unless you really need it, and for those taking it just to get high out there, stop! You are ruining it for the responsible people suffering and are risking their well being for your selfish actions. I was responsible enough it was too strong for me. Please listen!!!"

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I find oxycontin very effective but it took some time to get it to where it was most effective. I found most surprising that higher doses caused more pain. My doctor is great. He worked WITH me to adjust it many up & down on dosage. Best of all WE were able to find a low dose of Oxycontin & Oxycodone combination that has worked consistently for over a year now without adjustments. Fiñd a doc that is also a real partner in your health care!!!!!"
