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.
