I apologize if this topic has come up before, but I'm new and still finding my way around.
As I said in another post, I started OxyContin yesterday for shoulder/neck pain, and by mid afternoon today it was apparent that, for me, it is quite side effect-heavy. I experienced some fatigue w/Percocet, but it seems worse w/Oxycontin (20 mg every 12 hours, roughly equivalent to the amt. of oxycodone I was taking w/Percocet). Lots of nausea. I also feel really...foggy, generally speaking. Lethargic. And I was able to just lay around the house today, but I don't really have that luxury most of the time. So I'm wondering...does this get better? It's working wonderfully for the pain - the first time in months that I've gone more than an hour or two without my pain level at an 8 or 9 - but I'm wondering if people are able to function while taking this med.
