Well, it works very well.My only complaint is that it makes it nearly impossible for me to sleep.I have to take my last dose about 5 hours before bedtime. ( they don't last anywhere near as long as advertised. ) Plus my Dr. prescribed a sleep med for me. Otherwise I would never sleep. My pharmacist said that pretty much all pain meds do this. I was on Hydrocodone before. It did it also. J ... Show Full Comment

I WAS PUT ON THIS DRUG AFTER EXPERIENCING NO PAIN RELIEF FROM MY FIBROMYALGIA PAIN. I STARTED WITH A 10 MM. TABLET THAT OFFERED LITTLE RELIEF AND AM NOW ON 20 MM. TWICE DAILY AND I THINK HAVE FOUND PERHAPS THE DOASGE THAT GIVES ME TOLERABLE RELIEF. I SUFFER NO SIDE EFFECTS, EXCEPT PERHAPS A LITTLE FATIGUE(SLEEPINESS) IN THE AFTERNOON. FOR THE PROPER USE, THIS IS A VERY GOOD MEDICATION!

I have been raking oxycontin 40 mg tablets for about 7 months now. I take 1 tablet every 4 hours. I just got cervical disk fusion and have several lumbar disks that are herniated. I have a sort of mixed review on this medication because it does not take away the pain but does something to my brain that let me tolerate the pain eventhough it is there and I can feel it. I don't want to increase ... Show Full Comment
