It works for the pain, some what, better than others. I am one of those cases where the meds make me ITCH. I feel like I have little bugs biting me. I was at bingo tonight and wondered if someone there had given me lice or crabs the way I was itching. It is the meds. Checked the bad things, itching is a side effect.

I've been on oxycontin for 8 years with also immediate release oxycodone. I have shingles and soft tissue damage. I exercise a lot I work full time and I try to keep a normal life the medication allows this because it keeps me relative pain free. I have to work hard not to increase my dose. Considering the options this is worth it.

To "Just Me", Thank You for responding to my plea for help finding a pain management doctor. I really do appreciate you taking the time to post that information. I had almost given up what little hope I had left. I just want my life back.
