Hi Pat, it's nice to see you again
I haven't taken oxycontin myself, but I'm sure others here must have so I'm bumping this up. Are you finding it's helping with your pain?

I have taken both 15mg [not strong enough]and 30mg [to strong at times]I love the idea of constant pain relief but
if I take pain releaver when I dont need it I get very nauseated so for me xtra strength vicoden works better even though I have to wait for it to kick in I am in control.

Hi everyone, My computer broke down so I have not been on lately. Would you believe that the Oxycontin is really working for me!!!! I take 30mgs in the AM and 30mgs at night. This is the best that I have felt in 5 years no joke. I have high hopes that it continues to work I will keep everyone posted. Thanks for all the replys it is good to hear from you all again. Pat

Hello,Every time I check into this bulletin board, I see the heading to your note and I cringe just a little. I just want to share with you my second hand experience with OXYCONTIN. My daughter was in a terrible accident in March of this year. She was hospitlaized for over 3 months. During that time, she was given many pain meds including Oxycontin. This one was the hardest for her to get off of. It seems to be pretty addictive. I hope that your doctor warned you of this and any other potential dangers. I'm glad to hear that you are feeling so much better, just be careful.

My doctor had me on this once and I was afraid because I had read so much about it being highly addictive. Well it turned out it didn't work for me.Best Wishes to you,
