Nures2, I have been taking some form of pain medication for years now...and even though I have been taking Methadone along with Oxycodone IR 30mg. for a couple of years I have to say that Oxycontin scares the begeebies out of me. I know that it's Oxy in Extended Release form but it still scares me. Let us know how it works for you...I'm so glad that your Dr. gave you something else....hopefully it will help you alot.
