Im on Oxycontin 40 mg 2x day and vicoden 7.5 4 x a day. These were working great along with my epidural injection I had on Aug 27. But now the epi has worn off, Im back in work full time where I sit all day and I am in excrutiating pain. The vicodin does NOTHING for me. The Oxy works great but that wears off by 10:00am from me sitting. I see my PM DR on Oct 21st. Is it possible to take the oxy 3 x's a day or would the patch be a better option for me. I cant go out of work again or I WILL be fired no doubts about that. Im on thin ice now.
