Insurance will no longer pay for OxyContin er .i have had this work for my pain for years with no upset to my
Stomach,and with no change in dose 15 mg 2x daily, and it works well enough. I have tried all of the neurological suggestions : tricyclics helped but made a mess out of my stomach making me as uncomfortable as my pain, and to work the dose was going to need to be increased because I quickly got used to it, cymbalta, Gabapentin, many ant inflammatories...
Everything either made me so lethargic I couldn't leave the house, and backed up my digestive tract. I Gave them all a good try. Not being able to drive on some, uncomfortable weight gain and dry mouth are some of the symptoms.
One of the suggestions I've been given is Xtamptza er,
I can't find much information on this, for instance can I switch right over to this and just stop OxyContin ,
I did this once when they insist I try MS Contin er , but that hurt my stomach ,too, and didn't work well for my pain, and always needed a laxative , this seems to happen to me with everything but the OxyContin.
Sorry this is long. I hope someone has experience with the XtampzaER
