Reviews for Oxycodone to treat Pain

Sort by:

"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."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "OxyContin allowed me to recover from cancer surgery without any complications. I did have some unpleasant side effects like constipation. But it was totally worth the pain relief I got from surgery."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I have suffered RLS since about 5 years of age. Now 78. Nothing would stop it - neurologists tried all usual medication, permoglide, rivotril, etc. Then saw new GP in 60's who also suffered badly and he had in desperation tried oxycontin with great relief. Suggested I tried one 10 mg tablet before going to bed or when travelling as passenger in car - this was intolerable. Found tablet worked like magic and although reliant on it still take same 10 mg but one tablet first thing in morning and one prior to going to bed - about 1 hour before. Found it does not always work at night so I can be up until 3 am walking the floor nearly going insane as pain in legs is so bad. However, 90% of time I do get incredible benefit."

"I was given oxycodone for pain relief in the hospital after hip replacement surgery. The pain relief was okay, but the side effects of nausea, confusion, and weakness made me feel wretched. Who wants to throw up repeatedly and feel pathetic after surgery? As soon as my surgeon swapped oxycodone for tramadol, the bad side effects disappeared. Tramadol's pain relief was comparable or better. I'm amazed by all these high ratings because many friends had similar bad side effects with oxycodone."

"Ok, I've used Oxycodone for the last 2 years, when I got in a bad car accident. I stayed at a hospital for 3 weeks. I was given 30mg Morphine, 2mg Dilaudid, 2mg Ativan, and 50mg Promethazine every 4 hours, IV. I got sent to a pain management doctor, after talking about what happend, he gave me a script for 10mg Methadone 3x daily, and Oxycodone 30mg for breakthrough pain 4x daily. From 10/10 pain, with these amazing pain killers, my pain is now just 1/10. Thank you Methadone, and esp Oxycodone."

OxyContin (oxycodone): "I was in a near fatal car accident when I was 18, I was on Morphine for 6 months. After 30 years it is catching up to me. I am in some pain now most of the time. With Oxycodone I am able to make it through the day, and work. Caution during use, if used for over 90 days, dependency could occur easily. Please be aware of this."

"I'm 20 years old and have been suffering from severe testicular pain for the past 9 months. Not to mention pelvic and groin pain as well, all from a sports injury. While I recover, my Pain Management has put me on Oxycodone 10 mg four times a day (along with extended-release morphine). I can't tell you how much Oxycodone has been a lifesaver when it came to bringing down the severe episodes of breakthrough pain I have. Really lowers it on a tolerable level so I can function! I tried Tramadol and Vicodin prior to this, which provided very limited relief. But I really trust this medication. Highly recommended for any male suffering from severe testicular pain - and any pain patient in general."
