My chronic pain started within a week of starting Pegasys/Ribavirin and having peripheral neuropathy (cryoglobulinemic vasculitis
related) greatly exacerbated. My neurologist and
pain management specialist agreed on 1200mg Neurontin per day and 15mg Oxycodone per day. This combination works far better than the 40mg of Oxycontin I was on for the first couple of months. Some people, like myself, can't take NSAID's (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, ibuprophen, vioxx, etc.).
