Can I take something with my oxycontin so that I don't feel like throwing up all the time?

In brief: Yes, however

If an opioid is prescribed for an acute event with a fixed time-course i will generally add a nausea medication.
If the opioid is prescribed for chronic pain i would decrease the dose until tolerated. If the lowest dose still causes problems i would switch medications. Over time opioid induced nausea, itching, and sedation tend to decrease.

An antinausea medicine like Zofran or phenergan may help.
