Re: Oxycodone-Is 20mg a big dose

hi,

well is it helping you is the important thing. It may just right for you. but no you are low and with this drug the lower you can stay the better-if your pain level is acceptabe. I also take oxycontin but 60mg x 2 a day; but Ihave been at cp sice 2007 and have been on many different meds, etc-this is so far working well for me and i hope for you too. living in pain is not fun; neither are the meds I MUST take to function at some level.

Re: Oxycodone-Is 20mg a big dose

are you talking about plain old short acting "oxycodone" or actual long acting form "oxycontin'? there IS a huge difference there. have you actully been on other narcotics before or is THIS your first go round with any? that too would make a huge difference in what would be considered a "big dose" for an individual? how often is this actually dosed per day?

just what is your actual pain generator that you are trying to manage? but simply really knowing whether or not you are dealing with the short acting or longer acting form, along with how many times per day you are allowed to take it really would help tons here. marcia

Thanks bama and feelbad for the responses. I have just started OxycontinLA. I take it twice a day. I use vicodin for break thru. I have noticed a difference, which is a good thing. I am also on flexeril,neurontin,celebrex amd celexa.
Thanks again. painfulneck

Re: Oxycodone-Is 20mg a big dose

My doctor has told me oxycontin 20mg is not a strong dose. I wish it was good enough for me...I've started with 10mg oxycontin....then right away to 20mg...then in 2 weeks up to 40mg oxycontin. I guess my pain is so severe. There was not even a tolerance issue I believe or perhaps it's tolerance after 2 weeks?.

Keep in mind, you will eventually need to increase your dose to a higher dose.
That's how narcotic pain meds works.

All the best for you.
