I was at my doctors today and she took blood because she wanted to check my oxy levels?? She said this is standard for the amount of oxycontin I take (160 mgs a day) to see where my levels are at. Something about making sure I am not in danger for respitory distress. I have never had this done before...have any of you? Just curious if this is something that is normally done or is she checking up on me? I take my meds exactly how they are prescribed so I have nothing to worry about, just wondering...
