You'll end up taking less oxycodone during the day, because you'll only take it for breakthrough pain, if that is
even necessary. Oxycontin is
the extended for
of oxycodone, and I took them for
quite a while, with good success. I now am on Hydromorph Contin and Dilaudid for breakthrough.
A little about me...I broke my tailbone in Dec 2007. I had part of it surgically removed in May 2009, and here we are a year later in more pain than before the surgery.
