ROXICODONE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Chronic Pain “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.”

For Pain “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!”

For Chronic Pain “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.”

For Chronic Pain “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”
