I was prescribed hydrocodone 10/325 for severe back pain and they did nothing for the pain, not even when I took two at a time. The doctor then prescribed dilaudid 4 mg, this too did not touch the pain at all. I took the dilaudid back to the doctor and had them dispose of them. They then prescribed oxycodone 5mg. These do nothing as well, I took two at once and just got a stomach ache. I stopped taking all pain medications as they just were not working. Yesterday, I found an old bottle of vicodin 10/325 that I had from a previous surgery and even though they were expired - I took one and it worked! Within an hour I had more pain relief than I have had since I began seeing my current pain doctor. I wonder if it is possible that someone at the pharmacy is substituting my prescriptions with some kind of look alike placebo?! How would I go about finding out? Can I get the oxycodone I still have analyzed? And if so, where would I take them?

Hello, Maynard! How are you?

No, there would be no way for your pharmacy to know what you were being prescribed, or if you might not use a different pharmacy at some point. Your doctor couldn't possibly know, either.

Some medications just don't work for everyone, due to different manufacturing processed and/or different excipients.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?
