So, no matter what pain med you are on or want the doc to put you on, don't expect to be pain free. It can help you get through your day easier though.
Good Luck,

unless they have changed the dosage, oxycontin doesn't come in 15 mg, nothing less than 10..

If you check the likes of RXlist you'll see that OxyContin currently comes in both 10mg and 15mg tablets in the US. Since the dosages are often different in different countries, it also comes in 5mg tablets in the UK.

checked it out. Why did they bother? 5mg is what you would get in on perc? One would have to be really little, or opiate naive for that to do any good......or is it to customize a larger dose? Or is this related to the fillers?more doses, less fillers from combining different dosage pills to get the dose you want?

Thumbs down

The lowest I've been is 8. The worst 9. I've tried gabapentin, amitryptaline, fentanyl, codeine, morphine and regular painkillers such as paracetamol and ibruprofen but nothin seems to help me. The doctor said that the fentanyl would make me pain free bit really hasn't done much apart from make me ridiculously sleepy! But drugs that don't work on one patient may work perfectly on another, that's just the way these things are...
