: Has anyone had nausea and sweating as side effects of oxycontin? I have the Morphine Pump but at times I have to take breakthru meds and it seems that it makes me very nausated.Perhaps it is the combination of Morphine and oxy.,but whatever it is,it's not pleasant to say the least! Medicine is crazy, you take one med for one thing and then something else to overcome the effects of the previous medication!!!! I would appreciate any info. Also has anyone taken the time release morphine caps? Perhaps that could be a better solution than oxycontin.Again thanks.

I have a morphine pump but use MS Contin 3 times a day and then use immediate release morphine for breakthru pain. This works for me well. I do suffer from the sweats but it is in direct connection to the pain I am in. I have been a pain patient for 8 yrs and at time I do not realize the pain I am in and then I have to deal with drenching sweats. I have never used Oxycontin.
I am interested in the pain success you have had with the pump. Mine has been marginal at best.
