Advice & Tips: Started taking in 2005 not long after I had a spinal tap that was horrible. In 2011 I was up to 6 a day at 20 mg. Wasn't working as good. Doctor wanted me on Oxycontin but insurance [medicare] refused to cover it. The only option available was Methadone which I did not want to be on. A note : Oxycontin is now illegal in Canada. I got my yearly prescription coverage book from my insurance and was amazed to see that as of 2013 Oxycontin will now be covered. Corrupt system we have. Medicare is bad. We need a universal healthcare system. As soon as I was forced on medicare things got even more complicated. Doctors told me they could no longer see me. I was treated like trash. My husbands mother is retired now and she is being treated the same why. We shouldn't be afraid to go to the doctor.

    Mild
  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 4 x 325 mg-5 mg/5 mL Daily
Advice & Tips: Stopped taking due to peaks and valleys caused by taking short acting med. Therapist recomended changing to a constant level pain med, so now am on Fentanyl patch. I think the Roxicet worked better when it was at it's peak, but I'd rather not have the ups and downs and the desire to take more Roxicet because of pain returning. Fentanyl patch lasts 3 days.
