    Hi gang;

    Anyone on out there on oxycontin?

    How long?

    Side effects?

    Effectivness?

    How many mg per day?


    I just started taking it. It seems to work well. Only side effects is a little impatient and wirey mood-wise and some itching (no rash).

    I take 20 mg every twelve hours.

    Just curious...thanks!

    I've been taking oxycontin for 10 months. My Dr. started me at 10mg. every 12 hours. It didn't seem to be enough so he said go to 20 mg every 12 hours. The 20mg seemed to buzz me too much so we tried 10mg three time a day. This has helped somewhat although I don't feel my pain is under very good control yet. When I asked the Dr. about increasing it, he doesn't seem to want to even though I think this is a low dose I'm taking.

    I had the ithching at first but it stopped after a few days.
    I hope it works well for you.
