Hi Ann. Thank you so much for getting back to me with the kind words. Yes, I am indeed refering to Oxycontin. I am extremly aware that this medication is addictive. But under the circumstances, I really have no choice but to take 2 (10mg) tablets a day. I just took 1 last night for the first time and slept for a good 15 hours or so. I just woke up about an hour ago with another amazing headache.
But last night I also had a really bad headache and it went away within about an hour or so.
Hi. Thank you for your help. There is no way that I can take 2 (10mg tablets) every 12 hours. Again, I just woke up from last nights sleep. So I don't think that I will take them everyday as my doctor had suggested. Thus, I won't have to increase the dose.
However, I don't feel nothing at all when take one. For all I know, it could just be a sugar pill...lol. But they do make me tired and they do seem to get rid of a pounding headache but I can still feel that my headave is just "numb".
I went out and bought a pack of extra strength Advil. I tend to get the worst headaches in the morning and thus, the temptaion to take an OXY by taking an Advil.
If anyone has any suggestions that will get rid of these incredible headaches, I am all ears.
Again, Thank you.
Hi. Just a little update. I stopped taking Oxycotin completely. I went back to my doctor and he prescribed me Tylenol 4's. Yes, there is a Tylenol 4. 325mg of Ace-de-men-a-fen (sp) and 60mg of codiene and no caffiene. I can't drink caffiene for other reasons.
Yes, just taking one of these gets rid of my headaches and yes, it's also a very addictive drug. But it works a lot better than the Oxycotin. If I take one Tylenol 4, the pain goes away for about 8 hours.
