Reviews for Oxycodone to treat Chronic Pain

Sort by:

OxyContin (oxycodone): "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"

"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."

"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."

"5years diagnosed. 6 years pain before diagnosis. I'm on disability. I'm taking 3 15 mg Oxy. I take 2 the first hour & one more mid afternoon. I also have 30 Valium available a month. The Valium can boost the Oxy a bit. I also use 5% Lidocaine patches, a struggle to get but worth it. I'm gonna need more Oxy soon and I know it will be a battle. "

"Oxy helped me 120% as the pain would instantly leave me... It was hard getting some as my Dr stopped prescribing but then another gentleman who's contact I got from an acquaintance all the way from Canada helped me out and that was how I got me a fresh supply of some very potent generics from home... He could be reached here.. drtony6 artgmale d0tc0m"

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I've had orbital implants,kneck surgery, and I am a juvenile diabetic since I was a year old now I'm 50. the pain in my head,kneck, and right arm and the neuropathy in both feet r very very painful. I've been on doxycycline x 6 yrs. it works great but if your treating chronic pain take it when it's time don't wait till pain it at its worse it works consistently better."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I was in a severe ATV accident when I was 15 (am now 18), and have currently had 26 surgeries mostly on my right hand. Once I was released a few months later, docs basically turned me from a 3 sport athlete to a living zombie. I was taking over 25-30 different medications everyday; mostly pain meds. I remember just poping them like candy. I was on 80mg of MS Contin x4 a day, 30mg oxycodone x5, 30mg morphine x3, 100mcg's fentanyl, 2mg Xanax x3, 4mg x4 Dilaudid and numerous other anti-depressants that I am still on to this day. I don't understand how doctors can prescribe such obscene amounts of opiates when it's pharmastists who study drug interactions as their profession. Am currently working to become a 3 fingered anesthesiologist :)"

"It's definitely a good breakthrough medicine. I also take 30 mg ms contin 2x a day with 5 mg oxycodone 4x as needed. I feel it works for about 6 months to a year."

Roxicodone Intensol (oxycodone): "Used with my throat cancer and it helped numb my throat to be able to eat. I lost 200 pounds but this helped me survive and be able to eat most foods... Soft ones anyway... I know opioids are a bitch but without these I would have died of starvation"

"Dec 2008 I mentioned to my PCP that I had taken some leftover Vicodin from a dental procedure and how much it helped my chronic pain (fibromyalgia, arthritis, severe scoliosis, several abnormalities in both feet.) I was asking for a low dose of Vicodin to take sparingly and he talked me into oxycontin saying what a clean drug it was and there was no limit on how much you can take. Started with 10 mg ER 3x day and 5 mg IR oxy. Fast forward to around 2013, then taking four 80 mg oxycontin and five 30 mg oxycodone. Now I am being forced off with a 1/3 reduction in one month and told I won't have withdrawal. Not sure what he's been reading but it's been hell with more to come . This"medicine" has wrecked my kidneys, given me PAD, etc. STAY AWAY"

"On June 7, 2016 my pain management doctor put me on 5 mg oxycodone, twice a day with 15 mg of MS Contin at bedtime. So far the oxy seems to be helping me with my chronic back pain but does not last long. When I see him again in 4 weeks I am going to ask for a higher dose or to take a couple more per day. I'm a newbie at the clinic where he is at now and I think he is just trying to see what works and what doesn't since I haven't seen him in about 3 years. The downfalls for this med is I sometimes get itchy and the risk of addiction."

"I have been on oxycodone 15 mg for about 4 years now it was working well and then all the sudden I guess I have started getting used to it so it doesn't work right anymore so what I had to do what I had to tell my doctor I think I got an immunities. The doctor told me he says well you have been on it for a while it's up your prescription and some so he upped it to 40 milligrams in the forties work absolutely wonderful I said stay on this for about 2 years and will flip you over to 60 milligram so I said okay I can tell everybody out here these were awesome for pain do not take them the wrong way because you can get very very addicted to him and you'll have to go to rehab "

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I am really glad to see so many positive experiences. I just wish I could say the same. I have been on Oxycontin 40 mg for 6 years. I cannot say that I have found relief. I have peripheral neuropathy and I take the Oxycontin 40 mg twice a day and Methadone 15 mg four times a day. I am in excruciating pain at least 8 eight hours a day and I have trouble sleeping and now I am having a problem with constipation. I don't really think it is the medications fault I think my dose is to low to handle the amount of pain I am in. My doctor will not prescribe anything stronger."

"This medicine is absolutely amazing for Chronic Pain. HOwEVER, coming off of it is the absolute worse experience I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing. Please don't take this medication for longer than indicated. The relief you are feeling now, unfortunately, is not worth the pain you will experience when you stop taking it."

"My pharmacy switch my regular pain medicine with this new brand. It has not helped my pain at all, it's made me more constipated then any other medicine in my entire life. I'm wondering if I might have a bowel obstruction from this. I have to take twice the amount of this brand versus the other manufacture. And because of laws I'm now stuck with this medicine for 30 days. I will never use this medicine again."

"I have been on both oxycodone 30mg 8 tablets a day along with oxycontin 40mg for chronic pain issues, also 40 mg kadian, and Xanax for anxiety and soma, muscle relaxer. I can honestly say that the dosage worked great for me and I felt as though my quality of life was back and felt like a.functioning person again"

"Worked great after a car accident and i had back and knee injuries. Now since I've been taking so long it doesn't work. I just throw up and suffer in pain all the time. I don't agree with the fact acetaminophen is added. That stuff is garbage plus why add it if we can just go buy it."
