Oxycodone Pain Control Tonsillectomy
Pick your Pain Pill: Oxycodone works differently in different people. Because of variability between people and their pain receptors, different opioids are worth trying if you feel your pain is not significantly better. Your physician may first try increasing the dose or shortening the dosing interval. If this fails to work, your physician can consider a switch to another agent which may work profoundly better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am on Oxycodone for 2 progressive diseases. The past few days my meds aren't working. Can/Should I be admitted to the hospital for pain control?
Probably not: Chronic non-cancer pain is best treated outside of a hospital. The long term treatment will not be intravenous meds. It's best to find the right treatment which works in the patient's usual environment. ...Read more
I take Oxycodone-30 mgs several times daily. Been having SEVERE, lengthy pain flares & meds not helping. Can I ask to be admitted for IV Pain Control?
Talk with doctor: Certainly, if you are having acute pain issues and things are not well controlled then, switching to another strategy may be indicated if you're max'ed out on this regimen but that should be a decision your doctor offers.

If I get oxycodone from my pain management doctor and my primary gives me oxycodone same kind can anyone tell?
I understand that new regulations in effect say that only a pain management specialist can prescribe Oxycodone on a reg. basis? Is this valid?
It may be: I'm not sure of your locality/State rules - but our society is definitely concerned about abuse and illegal dealing in such drugs. If your doctor won't Rx it - that's enough for you to either get a referral to such a specialist or find other methods. You may thank this policy in the future - that's a dangerous path for regular use and can ruin your life. Best wishes! ...Read more
