 5  Sciatica, Herniated discs Dry mouth Sweating Hyper-Verbal I was referred to a Pain Center after I delivered my twins. I had severe sciatica and 2 herniated discs. I was prescribed Oxy IR 5 mg capsules (they no longer make them here) To take up to 4 times/day. They worked wonders. As time went on, they increased the dose to 2 Oxy IR 5mg tabs every 4-6 hours daily. My doctor wanted me to go on the OcyContin 12 hour pills and I refused as I had 2 young children i had to care for in the home. The Oxycodone are instant release and cause no drowsiness and are out of my system in 4-6 hours. They work perfect for a mom of twins. F 45 10 years
 5  As Needed for Migraine's As I take Duragesic 75mcg/hour (FENTANYL PATCH) applied every 3 days for chronic neuropathic neck pain, and represents about 180mg of Oral Oxycodone over 24/hrs, when i take a dose of 40mg of Oxycodone IR at once it can be overly sedating and can effect my motor skills. Therefore following tasks at work or operating a car etc are the only problematic side effects i get other than itching which is extremely irritating, also my eyes become very dilated and I look like a drug addict. Otherwise this medication is exellent. I have the 10mg and 20mg formulations and get 60 count of each. Each Label Says: TAKE 1 OR 2 BY MOUTH EVERY 4 HOURS AS NEEDED. Therefore I take anywhere between 10mg, 20mg, 30mg, or 40mg at once every 4 hours when I needed it for migraine's and Neuropathic Neck pain flareups (which I take DURAGESIC 75ug/hr every 3 days (72h). This is the equivalent to 180mg to 240mg of Oxycodone every 24 hours. Or 320mg to 360mg of Oral Morphine Every 24 hours. M 30 18 months

 5  Back Pain , Neuropathy I started taking this 15 years ago , for chronic back pain. At first , 2 a day , and it helped tremendously. Over the years , after Working on my feet For 40+ years , I developed neuropathy in my feet and lower legs ....They tried several exotic and ineffective drugs that didn't work. I couldn't stay on my feet for more than an hour at a time. Finally, I convinced them that the oxycodone was the Only thing that helped . I have been taking 4 a day for the last 6 years , and they allow me to live a pretty normal life . The only complaint I have is the stigma that the media and the medical establishment have attached to the drug , which is ....If you take it , you're an addict ! They pass out Poison like it's candy , but something "tried and true " like oxycodone, they assume you are an addict , and try to treat you like one ! Don't Let 'Em !! Absolutely a lifesaver for chronic pain ! M 67 10 years

 2  Tonsillectomy Constipation,severe nausea, vomiting. I was prescribed this medication following surgery to remove my tonsils. It worked well for the first 2 or so days. But then the pain got bad enough to need 2 10mg pills ever 6 hours as perscribed. That still didn't put a dent in the pain, it seemed to only work for about 1-2 hours, then I had to suffer through the next 4 before I could take it again. After a day of taking 20mg of the medicine I became extremely nauseated and had a bad bout of vomiting, enough to get perscribed anti nausea medicine for chemo patients. I was told to lower the dose, but the pain was so bad I found myself needing to decide between vomiting and a little less pain or just suffering through. Perhaps it was just an extremely rough surgery, I did everything I was told for recover, probably drank my weight in water each day, just couldn't get the pain to go away. F 20 1 months
 4  lumbarDDD spinal stenosis arthritis Mild consipation remedied with MiraLax which is great stuff, highly recommend. One 30mg wasnt enough for pain relief. Two was too much. Like baby bear 1 and a half was "juuuust right". When taken responsibly and as precribed this med offers great pain relief. During the winter I slipped and fell in the driveway and of course this made for some extreme pain for several days. I took more than prescribed trying to get the pain under control. DO NOT DO THAT! One thing it did which wasnt too much of a big deal is it made me talk constantly. I couldnt shut up. I also felt like I had to keep moving always doing something. The insomnia is what was horrible. I couldnt sleep no matter how bad I wantes to and my body was screaming for the sleep. I know it sounds crazy but it was the second night that I realized it was the medicine causing it. I guess it took awhile to put it together because my mind was constantly thinking of something but couldnt focus on one thing. I never felt that bad physically before. About 6 hours after taking last dose I finally started to settle down and I crashed and slept for 14 hours. I had been taking it for about six months when I did this and havent done it since. Horrible experience. I dont see how people can possibly like that. It sucked. Other than that episode it does great for me. I can function and live my life. I dont get euphoric like some people describe, which is perfectly fine with me. I dont like not feeling in control or not being able to focus on what Im doing. For me it feels no different than when taking an M 43 2 days

 5  Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain Syndrome constipation I take this for breakthrough pain, usually 45 mg in the morning, and 30 mg in the evening. It is fast acting for me, usually I can get pain relief in 30 minutes. Fortunately I don't get high from it like many people do - they are the one's who are abusing this medicine, making it more difficult to get, especially for those that really have a need for it. This year, 2014, it appears that the DEA is making it more difficult to obtain. I've already ran into difficulty filling prescriptions at 2 pharmacies where I've filled it in the past. One said they were going to check with my doc, but they didn't. Another one said the same, then said even so, they could refuse to fill it - treating me like an addict. So remember this when you fill your script. M 58 7 years

 3  Spinal damage/torn discs, They make me feel very dopey/drugged up. And, yet, they don't control my pain as well. vivid dreams. Loss of appetite and loss of energy (I'm VERY tired all the time) (A 214) - 15mg Oxycodone. Initial impressions: Basically, they seem to be strong as hell. I tried taking half (they are scored). But, I ended up having to take the other half, since the pain was still there. It is fascinating how medications work. And, how little differences create such different results. It's the same ingredient as a Percocet - Only without the Tylenol. Yet, Percocets give me energy & make me feel slightly happy : ) I always thought that (the infamous) Oxycontin was such an effective & powerful painkiller. I've since found out, that it is simply a timed-release version of Oxycodone. In any case, I never thought that I would be prescribed it. And, now I discover, that for me: It definitely isn't as great as it's supposed to be. I have a new-found respect for my regular med (Opana IR - Oxymorphone). M 42 3 days

 4  severe chronic pain Sleepiness, overall feeling of being weighed down. I love this medication! I have been suffering from severe chronic pelvic lower back pain due to pelvic congestion syndrome, endometriosis, and polycystic ovary syndrome since I was 19 years old. I only have one ovary left having lost the other to a 6 inch cyst. I also have scar tissue from a diagnostic laperoscopy, emergency laparotomy, and c-section. This drug finally gave me my life back. I can sit in a car without holding my abdomen. I can play with my 3 month old daughter, I can go for short walks around the neighborhood, and I have regained intimacy with my fiance'. This drug has drastically improved my quality of life! F 22 2 months
