Is there a chart or bell curve to show how fast, and how long 30mg Oxycontin pain pills provide relief ? There must be some way to determine how much pain relief I should be getting from this one pain pill lasting 12 hours, and when.

Certainly no one is getting a full 30mg. of this pain medicine for the full 12 hours. Can you help me understand why I need to take (1) or (2) 5mg Oxycodone pain pills 2 or 3 times a day until the second Oxycontin is due?

I have very severe pain from Post Polio Syndrome, and my Doctors know very little of the etiology of this condition, nor just how bad this pain is 24/7

It's been 60 years since my original bout with childhood polio, and 24 years now since PPS came knocking on my door.

I know how much Oxycodone I need to get me to a level I can live with, but my Doctors think taking 5 or 6 ( 5mg Oxycodone ) spread out during my day in the 12 hours before I take the night time Oxycontin is too much. I can assure you, I need those pills in between the 2 doses of Oxycontin.

Can anyone help me understand why they take a chronic pain sufferer, and tell them how much pain meds they need.... instead of listening to the patient.

My thoughts are they are far more concerned about their own hides, and not the pain the patient is in, and what it takes to help them.

tell your dr that you would like to try the 15mg oc instant release also taling advil with an opiate makes them work better but should not be a reg thing if you get the 5mg with tylonol /acetiminifen then tell him if u need the tylonol youll take it as needed but they cover their rears so you cant blame them if u become dependant if dr still oesnt listen go to pain managment they will be more understanding they make 15 mg oxycodone ir and even 30 mg irs i know people with minor pain on high doses basiclly find the right dr

Yes, I can tell you why, The more pain medication you take, The more you will need, How do I know this? Pain medication is addictive, My son started out with simple backpain, Advanced to Morphine and Oxycotin, Next was the fentanyl patch, 50 MCG, Then 75 MCG, Then 100 MCG. Now he is dead. It killed him. He was only 39 years old.

It seems to me that most doctors seem to think that you can put up with a little pain for a little while until your next dose is due. I have some damaged nerves in my foot that hurt like hell and all I can get is 5mg/500 Hydrocodone generic for Vicodin( not even the real stuff)and some Gabapentin 600mg which is suppose to be for nerve pain. Niether one of them work at all. I believe that my doctor is afarid of me getting hooked on the Hydrocodone because I went from taking 2 every 4 hours to 1 twioce a day after I told him that there has been no change in my pain level. He won't even let me have the Ocxydone that you are speaking of. If it is suppose to br a bit strongger than what I am taking, I could see taking 1 twice a day. I, like eveyone else do not .want to become dependent on any drug, but at the same time, I do not to be in pain either. I am like you, doctors should not be able to tell you how much pain you are expericening. But at the same time, it is very easy to get addicted to these pain meds and you should not abuse them at all. so going through a little pain before your next dose of pain med is due may not be to bad. I do it every day. It's not very comfortable but it is necessary. All I can say to you is hang in there. I know it's been a long time that you have been in pain and you must be very tired of getting the run around by doctor after doctor. Turn your pain over to God, I am sure that He could provide some relief.

Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules for how long Oxycontin will work and provide pain relief for anyone, since it can vary from person to person.

Yes, I also have to agree with the theories that a lot of doctors have more fears about addiction and getting in trouble with the government, than they do about properly treating a patient's pain.

It is not, however, their fault, since their narcotic prescriptions are very closely monitored and if the government agents do not agree with their prescribing practices, they face severe sanctions, fines and possibly the loss of their license to practice medicine. This means their very livelihoods are at risk. This makes most doctors err on the side of government, rather than what is best for their patients.

It is very sad, but nonetheless true.


Are there any questions I can help with?

What you need is a interdermal pain pump my friend. They put the pump inside your abdominal area with a cathiter that runs into your spinal cord. Instant constant relief with a remote to bolos shoot ya a extra dose if you need it. Youre opiod tolerant so your 30mg oxycotin is pointless on a twice a day scale. More like 4-6 hour lasting. I just had the pain pump put in by the leading world pain dr. Curletta in Scottsdale AZ. His number is 480-889-0255

I am so sick of sob stories from parents blaming doctors or different drugs for their childs overdose. No, I understand, because the more you take means you are breaking the law on the black market, no doctor would escalate from Vic's to 100mcc's of Fentynol, he was buying illegally because he became an addict, used responsibly and these help much needed chronic pain sufferer's, don't go try and get a drug illegalized because your son or daughter used bad judgement starting in the first place, and he should have been in rehab, it's too late now, but an intervention would have been a better try to save his life than blame or fight huge drug companies and ruin Doctors from prescribing it to real patients cause sorry to say but liars, addicts, and doctor shopping are what ruin the lives of pain sufferers
