I have been on Roxicet for about 9 months. My new PM doctor did not like the fact that my pain was coming back after 3 hours from taking the 15mg Roxicet. He put me on Oxycontin ER 40mg 1 tab twice a day. I told him that I had a bad reaction to kadien (severe migraine headaches), and I cannot use any patch as I have tape/adhesive allergy.
What seemed like 1 hour after taking the first Oxycontin my neck where the fusions are starting hurting really bad and I started a headache. I am also very nauseous. I have had the headache for 2 days now along with the nausea. The pain in my lower back shooting down my right leg is GONE! I can actually walk with no limp (first time in 3 months). Did anyone have this type of problem? Does your body get acclimated to the medication and the side effects will dissipate?
