OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I was given oxycontin after morphine tablets didn't do much for the pain I was in. 90mg SR morphine and topped up with oramorph throughout the day. Then transferred onto oxycontin which was prescribed for me in a 40+20mg dose of slow release and topped up with the liquid form for through the day, but when I needed a repeat prescription I was told that I wouldn't be given any more. Even though I had taken these for over two months and the morphine for the four months previously. After reading some of the articles I shouldn't have been taken off these straight away. So much for being professional doctors or just wanting to save money over patients welfare.."

For Pain: "To treat my breakthrough pain, I find that oxycodone is one of the more quicker working narcotic pain meds. Downside to that is I find it seems to wear off in no longer than 4 hours."

For Chronic Pain: "I first became disabled in 1978 I was started on codeine and Darvon. the doctor alternated these every three months. Around 1987 I was switched to Lortab. Around 1997 I was switched to Oxycodone. Mainly so I would not have to take so much Tylenol. (Tylenol has never helped me for anything) I have successfully been taking Oxycodone since. I have never abused it. (I need it for severe pain) If I don't take it for a day or two I kind of feel like I have the flu. (this happens when I forget I have medicine for the pain, I just sit and cry until I remember or a friend asks me If I forgot again.) I have never had any withdrawal symptoms (except for the FLU symptoms)."

For Chronic Pain: "I've been on Oxycodone for almost 2 years now. I was prescribed 5mg as needed, before my major spinal surgery in 2016, and post-surgery I developed permanent nerve damage, cervical radiculopathy, and have degenerative disk disease. I now take Oxycontin 15mg 3x daily, and Oxycodone IR 15mg every 4-6hrs for breakthrough pain. Yes, you develop a tolerance, yes, it can be VERY addictive - but it WORKS, and relieves severe pain tremendously. Please take this responsibly - those that really need it, do not need to be pigeonholed, or treated as suspects. It's terrible. You deal with severe pain on a daily basis, and that in and of itself is a nightmare, then you have society caught in an epidemic - due to those that can't control themselves."

For Chronic Pain: "I have been in construction for 42 yrs. And was in two car accidents in which I suffered broken neck. Upper vertebra broken. Lower back broken. At a point I could no longer work thru the day. I need to still support my family as I'm not ready to give up. I have used Oxcodone . 10mg. Low dosage's . Without these medication I would not have been able to continue with a productive life. This overdose issue I get. But there are those of us that actually have benefited greatly from it.. Without I wouldn't even be able to make it a few hrs a day and end up in bed.."

For Chronic Pain: "Switched to oxycodone from hydrocodone for chronic neck pain. Was on hydrocodone for 3 years and it worked with the pain management great. Only thing that concerned me was having the acetaminophen in it and liver damage it could cause, so I talked to my Doctor and we agreed the oxy would be a better choice. It helps me get through the days of excruciating pain and lets me live normal life again."

OxyContin (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "I am a double amputee with both hips totally replaced. Degenerative arthritis was the reason for the replacements. I am 64 and oxycodone 10mg. three times daily returned my life to me after 11 surgeries. Four months ago, my PCD (primary care doctor said he could no longer prescribe them. I have been in a wheelchair since the removal. Being in a nursing facility was my only option. I get to see a pain management doctor soon and hope I can get my meds back, along with my life."

Xtampza ER (oxycodone) for Chronic Pain: "Horrifying. The onset for Relief is 2 to 3 hours. Then it runs out of pain relief within 5 to 6 hours! If they are trying to hit the abusers make drug and alcohol treatment accessible!!! And the cost is 3 X's More than oxycontin...?!?!? Go figure...."

For Chronic Pain: "The brand shown worked very well for me. Would only need one when in pain during the night. I can manage the days but at night without this it would be no sleep and pacing all night . Even a half worked well sometimes but other times I would have to take the other half. I suggest taking as little as possible to just ease the pain and nothing more."

For Chronic Pain: "I've been taking Oxycodone Acetaminophen 10-325 four times daily for approximately 15 years. This has worked wonderfully until 3 months ago. What I found strange is that at this same time the price for Oxycodone is now 30% less cost. Why decrease the cost of oxycodone if we have an epidemic? I'll tell you why, it's because they changed the formula. What I believe the pharmaceutical companies did was change how the drug is released in the body. For the past 3 months all I this medication does is get me high. Before the change it did not affect me in that way. Even doubling up on the med doesn't help for pain. All that happens is I get high. No wonder non-addicts are seeking out heroin."

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"
