What dose of oxycodone would have the same pain relief effects as one dose of fentora 800mcg?

What dose of oxycodone would have the same pain relief effects as one dose of fentora 800mcg?

It depends: Even among experts the notion of opiate equivalences can be considered controversial especially if one becomes overly specific. Genetic and other contextual variable including the amount and duration all play a role. This is not a question for you to try and figure out.

May I take an oxycodone 10 mg for pain relief after being on 4mg suboxone daily for 7 days?

Yes and no: A single oxycodone tablet will add some additional narcotic effect, but if the goal is to reduce dependence on opiates, taking more oxycodone goes in the opposite direction. You should have a treatment plan with parameters for how to manage your pain that your doctor and you agree to together. ...Read more

If I am allergic to nsaids can I take oxycodone-aspirin? What are my actual options for pain relief? Also allergic to acetamenophine

Depends: If your allergy is to a specific nsaid like naproxen (more rare), then yes. If your allergy is not IgE-medicated, but rather causes hives or perhaps other side effects such as gastrointestinal discomfort, then yes. Side effects could be treated. If your allergy is to all nsaids (such as in a aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease), then no unless desensitized. See an Allergist to differentiate. ...Read more

How does dihydrocodeine compare to oxycodone in the relief of moderately severe chronic back pain?

How does dihydrocodeine compare to oxycodone in the relief of moderately severe chronic back pain?

Opioids aren't great: oxycodone is a much more potent analgesic than dihydrocodeine. The problem is that opioids are often not good for chronic pain. They often don't provide lasting results. And lots of patients get dependant on them.
If you have PTSD and chronic pain and have had back surgery, it's important to get multidisciplinary treatment that helps you maintain your function. You need mind-body care ...Read more

I have spinal stenosis with sciatic pain from foot to thigh. Now, I am having severe pain up to groin. I have been usingfentanyl patch and oxycodone with no relief. What should I do?

See, below: If you are using oxycodone regularly (daily) than you are going into withdrawal despite a more consistent level of fentanyl provided by the patch. That withdrawal at the end of the oxycodone dosing interval is exacerbating your pain. Another trick that is not well appreciated is the use of ultra low dose Naltrexone (0.25 mgs 1-2x daily) also the other drugs per answers given by the other docs. ...Read more

Never took oxycodone before. What dose would be good?

What doc prescribed: If this was prescribed, the dose the doctor wants you to take is on the prescription, and your pharmacist can further explain how to use it. If it was not prescribed, then ZERO would be the right dose for you. These are not questions anyone should be asking anyone other than the prescriber and their pharmacist. Strangers who do not know your health history are not the best source of information. ...Read more

Been in pain clinic for years. Having trouble coming off of the oxycodone. Was taking 60mg every 6 hrs. I'm down to 7.5mg every 4. Almost out. Help?

Most likely because: In my experience the most likely cause is an opiate use disorder not recognized. Indeed, I would assume so given the doses, duration of care, your age, and troubles you are having in reducing the dose. Patients who have opiate use disorders benefit from medication assisted treatment whether they have pain or not. Check out DrRotchford. Com and elsewhere for information about same. ...Read more

Is oxycodone or other narcotics any good for pain from diabetic neuropathy?

Is oxycodone or other narcotics any good for pain from diabetic neuropathy?

As a last resort: While narcotics are very effective against a wide variety of pain syndromes, their side effects, tendency to cause tolerance, and addiction potential make them agents to use only if more targeted treatment (such as treatment for neuropathic pain) has failed. Often, narcotic medications must be written for and monitored by a dedicated pain clinic. ...Read more

I heard a good combonation therapy for trigenial neuralgia syndrome is gabapentin and oxycodone is that true? This personally worked for me

I heard a good combonation therapy for trigenial neuralgia syndrome is gabapentin and oxycodone is that true? This personally worked for me

Yes and no: The gabapentin, or other antiseizure medications like it, will usually do a good job preventing the shocks in your face. Oxycodone is a very addictive narcotic. If your symptoms are so bad you need narcotics, then you should consider surgery. I do a "keyhole microvascular decompression" which allows most of my patinets to go home the day after surgery, with over 90% cure rate and no numbness. ...Read more
