are so darn conservative when it comes to prescribing oxycodone
. Many even prefer to give dilaudid
(hydromorphone) or morphine or methadone, over oxycodone for this very reason.
So, yes, your 30mg of oxycodone is very, very powerful... and to compound the problem (making it worse) is that it ruins it's OWN tolerance, too! before you know it, that 30mg just won't cut it. There's something about that leap, going above 10mg. That's why so many doctors refuse to give more than 3 percocet a day.
