Dear Family, i just want to know if anyone has been prescribed these meds. I was given Vicodin (Hydrocondone-Acetaminophen)for pain recently. It only gave me severe headaches. After 3 tablets I stopped taking it and told my doctor. Today she gave me oxycontin 20mg twice daily. I haven't taken it yet. Has anyone else taken this for pain? I have battled with chronic pain all of my life (since 7 yrs. old when i was in two auto accidents). I have had all kind of pain medications (including Darvons at age 7). I woulld like to know some of the experiences others may have had using these medications. I know they have to be used with caution, but does oxycontin time-relieve pain successfully? Thanks for the imput.
