    I have been using Oxycontin for 7 years for chronic back, and leg pain from an accident 19 years ago. I was on Vicodin off, and on for 12 years until I had surgery on My back 10 years ago, but it did not fix the nerve damage that was already done. Started on 10mg 2x a day, it barely helped, Dr. increased to 20mg 2x a day that helped for about 4 years, then had to increase to 30mg 2x a day. Recentl ... Show Full Comment

I think I have tried just about every pain medication there is on the mark ... Show Full Comment

    Oxycontin has been a godsend for me. I'm able to do normal, daily things. However, after two solid years of taking the same amount, I find that its effectiveness has worn off. But I'm afraid to increase my dosage. One side effect I'm noticing is complacency. Some days, I feel that I just don't care about anything and will sit around in a daze, and that scares me!

    I had a 15,000 lb. forklift crashed my right foot almost 9 yrs ago. I have been in constant pain since then. I have been seen by up to a dozen Drs. including the head of the Neurological dept. at Mass. General in Boston. I've done everything that have suggested - nerve blocks, lidocain infusions, P/T and more meds. then I can remember. The only medication that has been of any help - has been t ... Show Full Comment
