I take Oxycodone 5 mg 3 times daily , any better ideas? Is this addictive or will it harm me more? I have PAD and angio 2 times. Ache so bad I never sleep.

Oxycodone is a narcotic opiate, so yes, it does have the potential of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, constipation and dry mouth.

There are risks associated with taking any medication, there's no way to avoid that. It's really a matter of finding which one works best for you, without causing you a lot of problems or side effects.

What other treatment options have you tried?

See a Neurologist and IF your dx is RLS ASK about MIRAPEX OR MIRAPEX ER. Get off the opiates asap,
