  • Effectiveness
    Major (for surgery)
  • Side effects
    Mild (dizziness, drowsiness)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I suggest not to use percocet, which is a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen, but to use oxycodone and acetaminophen each on its own. It's easier to titrate the exact dose of each medication when you take them separately. For example, after my surgery I took 10 mg of oxycodone 4 times a day, and acetaminophen usually once a day (1000 mg). As the pain from surgery subsided, I reduced the dose of oxycodone and took more acetaminophen. I never took more than 3000 mg of acetaminophen in 24 hours to make sure that it doesn't damage my liver.

Advice & Tips: Oxycodone is very effective for mild/moderate pain of various types. Unfortunately, the pain of Optic Neuritis (the permanent variety) is not easily soothed. Any kind of opiates are going to cause severe constipation that can lead to intestinal impactions, so I recommend getting on a regimen of fiber and/or Miralax as a maintenance and preventative.
