: Kimberly: what diseases?, how much oxycontin/day?, what strength? Have you considered a possibility that you are developing an addiction? Narcotics are THE WORST way to treat chronic pain and conditions.
:I have degenerative disk disease, among other lumbar back disorders that cause me to be in constant pain. I take 30mg, 3x a day, and no, I do not think I am developing an addiction. I'm not sure I agree with your statement about narcotics being the worst way to treat such chronic pain, especially when it is well-monitored under the care of a Pain Management doctor. It can be trouble in the wrong hands. I was only looking for some information, and I appreciate your input.
