TMJ, maybe you need to talk to your doc about trying a lower dose of oxycontin to start with. They also make a 10 & 20mg. I just started the 20mg along with oxycodone for bt. It is going pretty smooth so far. There are also other extended pain meds out there besides oxycontin too. Just living with your pain isn't the answer. Please talk to your doctor about your pain levels and maybe between the two of you some relief can be found. Good Luck!
I talked to my dr. last week and this week. I started the oxycontin but then got so afraid of what it does to you as I've been on it before. I affects my body so much. I can't void, i can't have a BM, I am nauseated, I am sleepy, I have fallen down the stairs, i can't drive. by monday I was crying and decided I can't do it, what kind of life is that, no better than before. So I will just take the oxycodone as necessary.
