I am seeing a pain management doctor and he changed my from hydrocodone 10/325 4 times a day to oxycodone 10mg 3 times a day. The reason we changed it was because hydrocodone had become ineffective.
The first week it did a pretty good job at controling my pain but it has gone down hill since. I called him to get an early appointment than was scheduled so I could see what we could do about it. I have not seen him yet but he has told me since I first started seeing him about 5 months ago that it would be a trial and error sort of thing for awhile. Mostly we seemed to have errored. I am starting feel hopeless that anything will help the pain.
My question is, how much oxycodone is too much or what are other people her on dosage wise? One other thing, he did offer me oxycontin but I really didn't want to go there if I didn't have to as he said it was quite addictive.
I do feel the oxycodone is helping but I feel the dosage is too low.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.. Emmy
