My pain mgmt doctor thought I should try the long lasting pain meds. I pretty much tried them all, including oxycontin and opana. I couldn't take any of them. I had severe side effects for the whole 12 and 24 hours. So I have to stick to the every four hour medications of Oxycodone. Like clockwork, every four hours I need it, plus I take Lyrica 200mgs twice a day. This is for my fibromyalgia and occasional bad back pains, leg pains and foot pain. I do have a back history as well.
Anyway, I wish you luck with your endeavors and hope you find a combo that fits your needs well. May God bless you.
