I currently take Oxycontin, with Oxycodone for BT. My doctor is getting cold feet lately. She upped my Oxycontin (60mg, 3x day), but took away my BT meds. It's not working on my pain.
I'm starting to think that Oxycontin isn't for me, and I'd like to take just short acting meds instead. The immediate relief works better for me. I don't mind taking meds every four hours either. I don't know how to present this to my doctor. What dosages could she prescribe for me so it doesn't add up to too many pills, and is Oxycodone the best short acting med?
Any and all advice is appreciated. Thank you.
