Slow release Oxycodone OXYCONTIN is helping
0 Replies
archie8 - March 16

I had a total knee replacement almost 3 months ago and my doctor was kind enough to prescribe me Oxycontin 10mgs for the increased pain post op. I also have fibromyalgia for many years and the op has made my muscle pains in my thighs hips and feet much worse. (I think it has caused my leg pain to worsen) Anyway because I wake up each day like I am 120 years old with stiffness and joint and mucles pains I started taking 2 x 10 mg Oxycontin when I first get up and none at night only Panadol Osteo and my amytripyline. It has been wonderful my muscle pain changes to a feeling of wearing warm stockings up my legs. My only concern is that my GP wont be happy to continue prescribing the oxycontin next time I go see him. I have been reading a lot of this site about other peoples experiences with the new drugs for fibromyalgia and they all seem to either put weight on or have nasty side effects. What do people think. Should I try to persuade my GP to continue the oxycontin. I am 65 and not worried about a life time of addiction....just that I can be pain free and able to walk around like everyone else.
