Well, I did it...at the suggestion of many of you and with much thought I went back to my doctors originally plan to take Oxy 10mg in the morning and then another Oxy 10mg at bedtime, for the benefit of 24hr pain relief.

 Most of you know that I was not taking the morning dose for various reasons...so I am going to give it another try and I just took it and I am getting ready to head to work so we will see..I'll update once I get home.

 

I hope everyone has a good day.

      Lucky...please do consider that one day...will not be enough to see how things will work for you, so please be patient, and give this med some time over a couple weeks period before coming to a conclusion on it.

    As with all here,... "Good Luck"...we wish you the very best.

       Take care,

I agree with SE, give it a few days to see the full benefits. My fentanyl patch took a whole week to stop the side effects from being to great to see the benefits. Try to have some patience and let the meds work for you before you give up. I hope that you get the relief you are looking for sooner rather than later.

Hope you have a good day!

SE and Montymom are right you have to give it some time to see how it will really work.
 
I am sorry, I dont mean to sound like a bully of course you dont have to give it time, its up to you.  I agree with the suggestion that you give it some time.
 
Good luck and let everybody know how its going.
