I was prescribed vicodin and I built up a tolerance after one bottle.. I can take 1500mg and feel no side effect or nothing what so ever which is very scary. I am on 5mg oxycotton and 600mg oxaprozin now for my pain. The question is what happens when I build up a tolerance to oxycotton? This seems like the best drug on the market for solving pain problems but im only 21 and I dont what to build up a tolerance to meds like this especially when I will probably going to need a double fusion when I'm around 25-30. Thats when I definitely will need it. How many pain meds are out there? I take the oxy very sparingly and it works very well. I don't want to exhaust my options before the real hell begins.
