Reviews for Oxycodone to treat Pain

Sort by:

"I suffered multiple displaced fractures of the 11th and 12th ribs and nerve damage and cartilage damage between my chest wall and ribcage. I get injections into my ribcage every 2 weeks and 10mg oxycodone / apap, 1 tab three times a day. Injury sustained 3/28 and pain is still unmanageable and has me unable to go about my day to day as well as I'm cranky and irritable due to the pain. I was hoping I'd of healed by now. Recently pushed myself way to much and re-injured the same area and had to stop the NSAIDS due to stomach issues. Anyone else experience such severe pain continuing on 1.5 months from original rib fractures??"

"Um, I just got a call from my mom. She went to check on my sister and found her dead on her couch. The detectives counted all her meds, doesn't look like she overdosed. I guess we'll find out after the autopsy. The strange thing is, my sister was a recovering addict and alcoholic, I believe she was clean for 2 years. But why am I only now finding out about her Oxy usage. ? My mom knows better. I'm really perplexed as to the reason my mom didn't tell me my sister was taking Oxy for her bulging discs. I guess that's water under the bridge. She was 49. R.I.P. Dawn, I love you !"

"I take Endone for 4 days every month. 5mg every 6 hrs. I have Stage 4 endometriosis (horrid blood loss, 10 pain from under breast to knees, lower back pain & in rectum) I have 2 hot water bottles, & panadol. The panadol takes the heat from my head & feet. The pain goes after 10 mins. I don't take naprogesic as my blood turns a dark brown colour. Honey, lemon & cinnamon drinks help. I also take Endep. Have had many MVA's mostly neck & lower back pain, but now great after chiro. I have Chronic Myloid Leukemia so I take Glivec & soursop to stay alive. Chinese meds help well for endo. I had to go on endone, as the interactions with Chinese meds and CML are unknown. I prefer Eastern meds, to all western meds. After laproscopy the best is endone & panadol. Morphine didn't work for me. Endone side effects are sweaty head & feet, & I remain bedridden & a sensitivity from crumpled sheets. The withdrawal symptoms are negligible, restlessness."

Oxaydo (oxycodone): "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."

"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): "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): "OxyContin was a godsend when I was recovering from invasive cancer surgery. I never needed an increase In dosage and I was able to stop on my own without my oncologists help."

"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."

"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."

Roxicodone (oxycodone): "I recently had 3 very painful surgeries within 3 weeks. It's been a month & one week since my last surgery & I've been on Oxycodone IR 15mg every 3 hours (max 8 pills per day) ever since. I am a recovering heroin addict so this is a very slippery slope however i am now being tapered down VERY SLOWLY by one pill every 2 weeks until I can be off of them completely. I have a very patient & understanding pain mgmt dr. This med works extremely well as a pain reliever & is also very calming. I see the potential for addiction & the only downside is how fast tolerance develops. After a month & a half I feel like I need 30mg every 3 hours to do what 15mg did before but still it eases my pain & that is all that counts. I have zero side effects too!"

I finally found a great Doctor that went thru everything from lowest non narcotic to the fentynal patches. oxycodone has given me a life back, I take two 15 mg. tablets every 8 hours. they take 45 mins. to take effect for me. I can walk, do some things around house not just lay in bed.."

"I used this during cancer treatment in 2015 to alleviate the sharp pain in my right lung (tumor). For the worst pain I was taking 2 X 40 mg/day. I was able to wean myself off it after about 6 weeks but now 2 years later the cancer has become active again, so I'll take 20 mg to see how I go. It does cause constipation."

"Broke my elbow in 2 places and fractured my pelvis. DR prescribed 10mg four times a day or for four weeks. Elbow never bothered me but the pain in my pelvis was unbearable. This did not relieve any pain. I stopped taking the oxycodone after 5 days and switched to scotch. The scotch worked wonders."

"Oxycodone. And, my reaction to it. I had bilateral inguinal hernia surgery yesterday, June 21. All went well during the surgery and in recovery. Several hours later while resting at home, the soreness was getting to me. I decided to take one of the prescribed pills as the directions said take one or two tablets every 4 hours for pain. I took it just before going to bed. And after perhaps 30 minutes had lapsed, I started to experience delusions of my body sinking into the bed, my body was sliding off the bed, thoughts of being suffocated, and those were frightening enough that I woke up Jane who assured me that “no, you are falling through the bed.” I was now awake when vivid images of extension ladders started dancing together and singing about “bilateral hernias.” They were literally were swirling about the room in front of my eyes. Frequently, I found myself staring at my raised arms while my hands and fingers carried on incoherent sentences and conversations. At times while awake, the dimmed lights in the bedroom were dancing and I was carrying-on muttering conversations with myself. These awake experiences lasted for hours. They were not just uncomfortable and distressing, but frightening as well. I have decided to not take another Oxycodone pill. 6/22/2017"

"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."

"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"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"So far the best when it comes to pain... Only quite addictive from the little research ive been able to put together so far and it's starting to freak me out a little bit but so far it's all good since I met my new Dr after the last one started charging me ridiculous amounts of cash just for me to get a refill and it's not cool!!!"

"Full hip replacement. I take Oxycodone 20 mg every 6 hours,when I first started taking, it gave me headaches but my pain control was great, in about a week, the headaches were gone. I would highly recommend this pain med, I have been taking them for a month and my mind is clear, don't feel tired from a scale of 1 to 10 my pain is about a 2 or 3 with the pain meds. I would like to warn you if you wait too long out to take your meds you will regret it. I take 20 mg every six hours, one night I slept about 10 hours and woke up with intense pain."
