OXYCONTIN: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Pain “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.”

For Chronic Pain “Only thing that actually worked on my chronic back pain and for broken collarbone. Too bad idiots make it harder on those of us who actually need pain relief.”

For Pain “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.”

For Chronic Pain “Severely hurt my neck all the way to my lower back. Was recently prescribed 30mg IR twice daily. I want to say this: For people suffering tremendous excruciating pain it is an amazing excellent medication because it takes my pain away right away. However, for me it is way to strong and can’t function on it and when taken at night I can’t wake up in the morning. I have made an appointment to go back to my doctor and go back on Vicodin. To anyone reading: please don’t abuse or take unless you really need it, and for those taking it just to get high out there, stop! You are ruining it for the responsible people suffering and are risking their well being for your selfish actions. I was responsible enough it was too strong for me. Please listen!!!”

For Chronic Pain “I find oxycontin very effective but it took some time to get it to where it was most effective. I found most surprising that higher doses caused more pain. My doctor is great. He worked WITH me to adjust it many up & down on dosage. Best of all WE were able to find a low dose of Oxycontin & Oxycodone combination that has worked consistently for over a year now without adjustments. Fiñd a doc that is also a real partner in your health care!!!!!”

For Chronic Pain “Both meds Oxycontin & Roxicodone are some of the best pain meds on the market-HANDS DOWN! I’ve been on as much as two 80 mg Oxycontin & six Roxi 30’s a day & was on that regiment for 8 years. I have had 5 back surgeries & have rods from the bottom of my neck to the top of my ass . I have all kinds of nerve damage in my left leg & feet & cramp something awful if I don’t take meds. I took all that medicine with 3 Soma daily-3 zanex bars daily-100MG ZOLOFT DAILY-Neurontin 900mg daily-And as I said to start, both those pain meds are highly recommended & trust me, I have the experience lol”
