    I have heard good and negative things about them, just asking for some feedback. I heard they don't work as well as the OC and make people sick to their stomach. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I was just prescribed CODEINE CONTYN 50 MG. and they are working better for my pain. I take a Zantac if my stomach feels upset. That stopped after the frist few uses. I could not take Oxycontyn before. There's different meds we can try.

    I personally think the oxycontin is too strong to take and prefer to start at the bottom of the strength chain of pills and work up to see what works for me.

    I also add to the pain meds stuff like Neurotin and Cymbalta to help, as well as a muscle relaxer like Zanaflex or Elavil at night.
