    I have had Degenerate disc disease for 20 yrs! 7 years ago I went on oxycontin. It works very well, but makes me feel like I have had too much coffee! Does anybody else feel wide awake 24/7! Most people get groogy or buzzed. I never have felt anything but wide awake and have to go down In mgs. at night and take Anbien to fall asleep! Never had to incresae dosage- actually went down to get sleep!
