Reviews for Roxicodone

“FYI-as other sleuths such as myself have discovered: the CAMBER brand oxycodone (I get prescribed 15mg) are JUNK! For the last two months, this is ALL my mom and pop shoppe have had in stock allegedly and I’m telling you, they are BOGUS or FAKES. My doc has even written on my scripts DO NOT fill with CAMBER BRAND and the pharmacy still has, so I was stuck with them. Plus, sarcasm, it’s so easy to just transfer a CONTROLLED MED script to a NEW pharmacy-LOL- they’ll give you the junkie glare or straight up lie and say they don’t carry it. Lol. This whole nightmare has become such a blatant and laughable joke really. We (legit pain patients) are on to ALL of you playing this game with our lives. The jig is up.”

“I have to laugh when I read some of these comments . Why do I itch ? Because you are taken too much ! Listen I take 7 pills a day of oxycotin 80 mgs and 15 pills a day of roxy 30mgs because a doctor years ago decided it would be the best thing for me and it was the worst thing he ever did to me . I take over 210 80s a month and 450 30s that's is 660 pills a month yes one month ! I would tell anyone do not take these meds I am so addicted to these now and now with Obama and the DEA against them doctors are being told to take ppl off them well that's great now I deal with the withdrawal and it's terrible please please please if you really need the meds take them with caution they become so so addictive doesn't matter who you are”

“Very effective. I have 3 bulging discs in my neck, 2 herniated discs in my lower back, and torn ligaments in both knees, had surgery on right, the left is next but still very painful, from a major car accident, left me disabled. I take 60mgs Oxycontin 2xdaily and 30mgs oxycodone 4xdaily. And it has been a life saver, thanks to my compassionate Dr. Who understands my chronic pain, I can actually live my life. And take care all my adopted animals that need me.”

“Taking this medication as prescribed gives back quality of life with in days of first use. The least you take ,the more effective in pain reduction. For anybody using any opiate for recreational use has no idea what the complications ahead in time. Not only losing everyday enjoyment. BUT revolve around becoming physically dependent (dope sick) on medication day in day out . Trust me you don't need the extra stress, NO body that takes this medication prescribed by a doctor, wants to suffer not only from chronic pain but then physically/mental stress that comes with opiate use . I do not work in the medical field , this is all from personal experience. Hope this information helps out in anyway ! CREDAD”

“I was on Percocet 10/325 and the highest dose. It was killing my stomach but since my doctor changed it to just roxicodone without acetaminophen I feel much better. It definitely helps with the pain. I take a lot less pills now because I'm on the right dose. I haven't had any bad reactions either so far. Been on this for almost a year now.”

“After an injury with a chainsaw. I was put on morphine. It made me feel "thick" & groggy. It also didn't cut the pain. I asked my Dr. To put me on oxycodone & Oxycontin. I found this to be better at reducing pain without the brain fog.”

“Been on and off of it for intractable pain and trigeminal neuralgia for 10 years . I was taking 30 mg every 4 hours or 6×day. That work for me for a long time until my doctor of 14 years retired and it's been downhill from there. Now I'm only prescribed 30mg 3 times a day and thinking about what are the options I have because when you're on these drugs for so long you don't have adequate relief or adequate medication it just leaves you and I state of withdrawal and increased sensitivity to pain”

“Bed bound 5+ years for injuries and spinal micro fractures complicated by significant OA and bone spurs. Now with Roxicodone I am up and walking, doing, being! I was under medicated during the war on opioid abuse, an anesthesiologist made adjustments and within months I regained strength. 30mg 3x day has given me a measure of my freedom back.”

“I have had chronic back and neck pain since 2002. I have had back surgery twice and neck surgery once. I have tried a lot of different options and the OxyContin, Oxycodone combination has been the best for me. Since the onset of all this "Opioid crisis" has happen it has been harder and harder to get my meds. The old saying "don't let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch" says it all. That's what the government has done, let a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch. People that need these meds need them and with the way it is now doctors don't want to give them out. If I could I would get off them in an instance but my life is miserable without them from the pain I have so here I am, stuck getting what I can to get at least some relief.”

“I have been given many choices for my breakthrough pain medication while being on methadone but I have always stuck with the oxycodone. I chose oxycodone without Tylenol because Tylenol causes major GI upset since I suffer from Gastroparesis (delayed stomach emptying). I find it to be very effective in the combination I'm on, the only downside of oxycodone I find with myself is that if it's taken by itself it can cause insomnia which I find to be very annoying.”

“I've had 10 surgeries on both of my legs. I just started going to a doctor this month and they gave me roxys. They work more than any other medicine out there. I'm so happy I can now take my son for a walk and do things that I couldn't before. I want to thank my doc for taking my pain away.”

“I've delt with chronic pain the last 11 years, since I was 23. And as anyone with chronic pain knows, it's never going to completely go away. We just want a break, some type of relief from the constant agony. In the wiiiide variety of opiod pain meds, roxicodone has brought me the most consistent pain relief paired with my muscle relaxer (Baclofen). I swear I've tried just about everything, trying to find that "happy medium" I personally try to find the least amount of medication I need to be on to function. These seem to do that for me, aside from fentanyl patches and then a med for break thru. Everyone is a bit different though, and our tolerance for medications and how our body metabolizes it varies as well. But for me, it works!!”

“I initially suffered compression fractures of L1, L2, & L3 with fractures of the vertebrae & 20% disc space loss between L1 & L2 & L2 & L3. Only 8 months later I had the unfortunate experience at a sporting goods store, a 240lb shelf fell directly on my head knocking me out cold for 30 seconds. That also led to a fractured C5, nerve damage, & a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). I was lucky enough to get in to see 1 of the best pain management doctors, who was working out of a hospital in Denver at the time, and he put me on Roxicodone 30mg x 6/day and I've never had a more effective medication! It truly made the pain vanish & I could go about my day as normal. I moved to IL & they drastically lowered my meds & switched me to Dilaudid & it isn't nearly as effective!”

“Have had back problems for 25 years, my doctor has me on 30 mg 2X a day. My doctor is so scared of the DEA that it took a lot to get this. I really need 3 a day but he wont hear of it. I wish he would give me this and maybe something else for the break through pain but he will not do it. Just glad I get this much.”

“This has given me a quality-of-life that I did not have! I am able to enjoy time with my child again, do some hobbies I wants had to quit and it helps me not to just barely get through the day but to enjoy parts of the day again.”

“I broke my back and had an artificial disc to put in and then device failed and I was put on roxycodone 30 mg and oxycodone works better for me than hydrocodone and even better than the Dilaudid the Dilaudid and hydrocodone doesn't last not an hour for some reason on me if I got Dilaudid through an IV it would hit me hard and take away the pain for about 30 minutes and then it would will go away fast the oxycodone for whatever reason works better for me”

“I'm 20 years old and have been dealing with Testicular Neuralgia, which causes severe pain in the scrotum, for more than a year. Vicodin didn't sustain my pain nearly as much as Roxicodone does. My Pain Doctor prescribed me 15 mg of Oxycodone (Roxicodone) six times a day. This medication has literally given me my life back. It simply takes my pain away for hours and I can function 100% better. I take this along with MS Contin and a muscle relaxer. 10/10 rating!”

“After working with the top Doc in the field of Pain Management (Philadelphia ) for years, I ended up on Roxicodone. We literally tried everything available/appropriate before resorting to narcotics. Some things worked for a while & then stopped, some meds caused awful side effects. Roxicodone works well for me;it doesn't provide 100% relief, but is better than other things I've tried.”

“After being on methadone for tonsil cancer and going through radiation the methadone only made me sick in the stomach with no pain relief, Roxicodone has not gave me any bad side effects and I'm even on Xanax but I do not abuse them and take them as little as possible, however the Roxicodone liquid seems to take your pain and bad thoughts away so you may not even need your nerve pill, it also tastes like a good cherry flavor but boy is the radiation painful to the throat. I'm trying to wait the pain out but it's pretty severe. But the Roxicodone takes a good deal of it away and is much better than methadone in my opinion.”

“Prescribed 30mg 3x daily. Used to be on Opana 40mg. Opana was definitely a better solution because 1 pill a day is better than 3. New formula causes stomach problems for me, but now I am on roxicodone and it does great for my spinal disc pain Just wish I didn't have to take 3 a day”

“Have chronic back pain bulging disc in L1 and S5 along with lumbar thinning due to osteoarthritis which I have in my hands knees and ankles, also Fibromyalgia. I am prescribed 6 daily 10/325 Vicodin. When I have a"Flare up" they do not work. Doctor called this in for me 10 mg. I just took the 1st pill about an hour ago and I am pain free. Unfortunately he will not put me on this medication regularly, this is just to get me through until I can get another MRI to make sure nothing has changed in my spine. ”

“I have taken these as a med for breakthrough pain in addition to oxymorphone 30 mg ER. The roxycodone is quite beneficial in helping to control my chronic pain. I would rather have the brand name with these but it is too expensive.”

“Itchy, itchy! I've found opioids analgesics are the best for my chronic pain. Roxicodone caused pruritis for me. That might not seem like a big deal. However, when dealing with pain that's been constant for years, a side effect like non stop itching is one more thing that magnifies the pain. Then there's pain, itching, and more loss of sleep. There were a couple of remedies. The doctor rxing a different medicine. Or taking an antihistamine to overcome the itching. In today's current anti-opioid environment, doctors seem more likely to throw up their hands, and say, "Well I guess you're just not a good candidate for opioids!" Which just isn't true. Switching worked like a charm for me.”
