I used to take two 20mg oxycontin and four 7.5/500 percocet a day and still was in so much pain that I could not do anything. If I cut the grass in my small yard I was down for three days in terrible pain.I could not sleep for days due to pain I now take three 5mg methadone tablets a day and allthough I am not completely pain free I can now do some chores without fear of day's of recovery.
