... When switching my breakthrough medication from 60mg/dose Oxycodone to 24mg/dose Hydromorphone, I can tell you that I found the pain relief to be approximately equal, but found the medication lasted only 1/2 to 2/3 of the time. Although it did kick in significantly quicker. Due to that, after a period of time, I switched back to the Oxycodone. I had hoped that since I had... (8 replies)
... I would ask for a retest. When I was prego they tested me and it came back positive for several different drugs. Well being that I was prego I knew it was wrong because I hadn't taken anything stronger then Tylenol.

... Hi Peaches, Was the rapid test confirmed with GCMS or LCMS, rapid test are presumed to be accurate but require confirmation with either Gas chromatography or liquid chromatography.

... No, i dont mind. Do you mean what do i take now, like my pain medicine? I wear a fentanyl patch but when i started taking long acting narcotic medicine there were only two or three to choose from. Now there are many more so that when going to narcotics you dont have to make such a big jump. From occasional percocet or dilaudid orally to fentanyl is a big leap i think (it comes... (37 replies)
... range. All through the 70's, 80's and 90's the 4's were selling for 10 bucks a mg long before oxycontin was ever invented which has a value of a buck a mg on the street. D's have been 10 times more expensive for decades for some reasons I wont disclose. ... (11 replies)

They didn't make an oxycodone product stronger than 5 mg percocet back then and that was used sparingly post surgery. ... (8 replies)

... Just wanted to give a quick update since everyone on here has been so supportive. I met with my PM Doctor today for the first time. He decided to increase my Oxycontin 20mg to 3x daily and use my Dilaudid in between those doses. He said hopefully that will reduce the number of times I will have to use my BT medication. ...

... Lindy, Hey, that's probably why you aren't noticing the oxyIR working, since your on Oxy for long acting pain as well....they both hit the exact same reactors, since they're the same drug. You definitely should talk to your doc about increasing your Oxycontin. You shouldn't need to be taking your BT med regularly, they're only there for backup on days when the pain is... (23 replies)
... Oxycontin 20mg 2 x daily and Oxy IR 20 mg as needed or every 4-6hrs. I used to be on Dilauded, Fetynal and Percocet, but when I was hospitalized, the pain management doctor thought this might be a better combo. He was willing to do the other, but I told him I would go with whatever he thought was best. I have an appointment Monday, so Iíll see what my Doctor says. ... (23 replies)
