Just wondering what the next dose is of oxycontin from 40mg? I had been on kadian 100mg twice a day for about a year and then when I got this different insureance, my copay is $250 for it, so I tried ms contin for a month and then asked to switch vback to oxy b/c ms contin has never helped too much. However this time, I'm on 40mg oxy three times a day with 20mg oxycodone IR four times a day and my pain has increased. My foot is constantly feeling like pins and needles now. I really believe the herniation is worse than before. I go back to the doctor in a week and need to ask for an increase, but was wondering the next dosage of oxycontin? Is it 60 or 80? I so hate to go up due to the tolerance issue...it makes me nervous not having anywhere to go up. I've been on fentanyl patches before, which did well, but my hubby will not let me use those anymore b/c he is afreaid of rupture and overdose.
thanks and God bless you all
