Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: The week before last Thanksgiving I was taken to the hospital (for a 3 day stay) due to a bleeding ulcer. They figured out that it was somehow related to a massive spike in three of my liver enzymes, which in turn was part of a reaction to an antibiotic (Cefdinir) I was given to fight off a sinusitis infection that we had a hard time getting rid of. In the hospital, after being put on a different antibiotic via IV drip, those levels returned to normal very quickly, and I have not had any repeats since then. Nevertheless, my doc and I decided I should try to avoid Tylenol. Due to my bariatric bypass weight loss surgery a few years ago,, I am only allowed Tylenol and/or narcotics for pain relief. So avoiding Tylenol meant I am restricted to narcotics for any pain relief. So I switched to Oxycodone from Hydrocodone (which I had been on for about twenty years, off and on) as Hydrocodone has Tylenol in it whereas Oxycodone has some versions that do not have it. So getting rid of the Tylenol while still controlling my fibro pain was one side benefit. It also helps some of my other types of pain (i.e., headaches that nothing else I took or did touched, a broken femur (cracks, not broken all the way through, 2 of them, about 2 inches above my artificial knee and a broken rib (the broken bones are all recent as in the last month or so), pain from my pinched Sciatic nerves and bone spurs, and a number of other pains that the Hydrocodone did not help much. It also seems to calm my anxiety(ies), although I won’t take the Oxycodone for that, it is nice to have them eased up a bit when I’m having to fight pain. I also won't take them for my insomnia, but if I have had to take one before bedtime, I find it much easier to fall asleep.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 180 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication helps very well for break through pain, and gives me the ability to control my pain without having a lot of unwanted side effects. It also gives me an increase in energy for some reason, or maybe it is because it takes the pain level down and allows me to achieve my daily tasks pretty much pain free.
Cost: < $25 monthly
