Comment:
I am using oxycontin for cronic back pain since i had spinal fusion surgery. I now have problems with my sacroiliac joints and other problems that the fusion did not fix. I take 20 mg. time relase tablets twice a day and i find much relief, although i do experience some break trough pain in between my dosing time of every twelve hours.
