I am a legitimate chronic pain patient (Interstitial Cystitis
/Painful Bladder Disease and Fibromyalgia), and have been tapering off of my pain meds for
about a year on my own volition. I have gone from 120mg of Oxycontin 3 x per day, plus breakthrough Oxycodone. My health insurance cancelled coverage for extended release Oxycontin, and now only covers the quick release Oxycodone (insane from a chronic pain sufferers perspective, I know), so I am now done to 15mg Oxycodone 4 x per day.
