Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia treatment oxycodone

fibromyalgia

Avatar n tn I learned this the hard way and most of my friends assume I am a pill mill addict because of what they have read and seen on the news recently about oxycodone. As long as they see that you are able to do more things with them, they should be grateful that their friend is able to engage more with them in life. There are many chronic pain patients that need to take some sort of sleep aid to counter the alertness brought on by some medications.
Avatar n tn i had to go through a detox for 3 days, then went to an outpatient treatment facility and started suboxone treatment..I was in suboxone treatment for 8 mths. i stayed clean the whole time from opiates, but abused pretty all other drugs to compensate, my tricky brain was at work, tricking me to move the addiction/problem to other drugs..and of course it worked cuz i am powerless over any and all substances..
Avatar m tn I have been on oxycodone off and on for about 3 years now. Ive been with 3 different doctors (all in the same clinic mind you) and they have all have transferred somewhere else. Im going on my 4th in mid January. Ill try to keep this short. Ive had 3 MRI's done on my lower and mid spine. I also have pain in my elbows. wrists, butt cheeks, knees etc. The 1st doctor cut me off cold turkey, he thought i was selling them.
Avatar m tn My question is - I was on suboxone for the pain and it did not work. So I have a new doc appt next week, and am certain he will give me oxycodone. Should I go to a different pharmacy? I thought there is a central database where any can see that I just got subs filled last month. I plan on telling my new doc that I even tried them for pain. I don't want to get into trouble. It's been a long, rocky road with sciatic nerve pain, chronic back pain, and fibromyalgia. Any comments are appreciated.
7810280 tn?1394406026 Like anyone else in my situation, if I wean off the OC, I won't be able to move! There is NO surgery or treatment for DDD. I've had the PT, the injections/epidurals.....nothing helps and very often, it's accompanied by sciatica! UGH! I also suffer from severe anxiety and the thought of not having my pills causes panic. But I hate my life, my body, everything. I desperately want to be pain free and off these meds! Can anyone help?
Avatar n tn As luck would have it a friend quit taking her extended release oxycodone and percocets, and gave me literally hundreds of each: percocet 10/325, oxycodone extended release 20 mg. I started taking more and noticed that if i just take a lot every day, I don't ever get a migraine, at all. So I'd say I'm taking btween 80-100 mg. total a day. Last week I tried to stop, because I am getting close to my due date and don't want to have a baby born addicted. Well the withdrawals were awful.
1351082 tn?1479843732 I've been on oxycodone for about 3 years it started when I got shingles and I ended up with the postherpetic neuralgia where the pain doesn't go away it's the burning in my chest so they tried all kinds of tests on me burning the nerves in my spine nerve blocks etc anti seizure medications and none of it worked after a year-and-a-half they finally put me on oxycodone on top of that I have fibromyalgia so I have all over body pain and then year-and-a-half ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer so
Avatar f tn Therefore, 5 mg of oxycodone is about 16 mg of hydrocodone so oxycodone is about 3 times stronger than hydrocodone. However, geminigirl is right in that everyone is different. I have read that some say hydrocodone works better for their pain than percocet and viceversa. For me, percocet works a lot better for my pain. Hydrocodone does not come without acetaminophen...yet. There is a drug in development called, Zohydro that would be a long-acting form of hydrocodone without acetaminophen.
220965 tn?1189759423 What are some of the best home remedies for stopping Oxycodone use? I have no money for the suboxone. I have been taking 5/325 8-10 a day for around 2 years prescribed by my VA doctor and I want to quit and I have tried but the withdrawals got the best of me? Any help is much appreciated.
Avatar n tn Question for anyone who has FM and chronic HCV/and or HCB. Does treatment of any kind; peg int w/rib, other newer tx help eradicate the extrahepatic manifestation of this disease? I was dx in 1989 w/non A, non B hepatitis after admitted myself to the emerg room. Every bone, joint, muscle, tendon, and ligament was excruciatingly painful where I needed help to get outof bed, walk up stairs, button my clothes, (everything.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed 15 months ago when my youngest was born via c-section and was given Oxycodone for the pain, became dependent on them and had to go to a facility to get help to stop them (my choice)...I didn't want to be chained to meds the rest of my life but the pain is just unbearable. I am very depressed and anxious right now with all of the moves, being separated, still trying to accept my diseases and limitations, etc. and with the stress in my life right now...my pain is exacerbated.
Avatar n tn She did a few things in her office and said that i had Fibromyalgia(keep in mind that she never took blood at that point). She then gave me a prescription for OxyContin 20mgs three times a day and 15mgs of OxyCodone immmediate release for breakthrough pain. After that, she did some blood work and said everyhting was fine. to make a long story short, she upped my dosage to 40mgs of OxyContin three times daily and 30mgs of Oxycodone for breakthrough pain.
Avatar f tn Hi People, I have been on oxycodone for about 3 years after a bad accident left me with multiple spinal fractures. I am better now but a while back I got up one morning and had intense pain in my feet. I could hardly walk. Next it was in my wrists just where my arm and hand join. I was thinking arthritis maybe but the doc did tests and I dont have the markers. Next they tested for Ross River Virus, then MS, nothing.
Avatar f tn My spouse has chronic, debilitating pain and sees a pain specialist who prescribes him a 30 day supply (120 tabs) of 10/325 oxycodone/month for the past few years. Six of my spouse's sibblings and his father all suffered (died) directly and/or indirectly from chemical addictions. I accidentally discovered that my spouse is also getting another 120 tabs (2 week supply) of 5/325 from his PCP.
Avatar n tn Over a year ago was in a car accident and my muscles and joints hurt so bad most of the time its hard to have a normal day. Its not arthritis or lupus and Dr's are now saying fibromyalgia..I also have extreme burning in my joints and neck is this also a symptom of fibromyalgia?
1047234 tn?1253547296 I have Fibromyalgia and am RH negative, as well!
Avatar f tn Have never abused my meds Am presently on 60 mg. oxycodone every 4 hours (round the clock ... don't sleep due to pain.) Also was on 75 mcg. fentanyl every 48 hours. Just went to 50 mcg every 48 hours. Not sure how that will work. (I asked to decrease meds.) I've started cutting back on my oxycodone as well. I am definitely having withdrawal symptoms. I had the beginning of withdrawals once and it was horrendous (due to script late in the mail.
975514 tn?1325001538 section_id=27670#sec_27670 I urge you to introduce yourself below and tell us a little about what brought you to the Fibromyalgia/CFS Forum. Again, welcome to MedHelp and the Fibromyalgia/CFS forum!
Avatar f tn None of my docs has ever suggested that the oxycodone was bad for my liver- in fact, they have said otherwise. One of the reasons I've been on oxycodone instead of an oxycodone formulation with tylenol or ibuprophen in it (like Vicodin) is to eliminate tylenol or ibuprophen which can be bad for the liver. I hope you get some relief soon (have they tried an epidural?). Sounds like you need prayer yourself- done.
Avatar m tn A radical group of doctors and law enforcement have submitted a petition to the FDA that would effectively eliminate treatment of chronic pain with opioids. The maximum treatment would be 3 months and the amounts prescribed very limited despite the amount of pain suffered or the amount of medication you currently receive. You may read the petition here: http://www.citizen.org/documents/2048.pdf And respond to the FDA here: http://www.regulations.gov/#!
Avatar f tn Tramadol and oxycodone belong to the narcotic analgesic group and are given for severe fibromyalgia. Narcotic analgesics block the transmission of pain signals by binding to the opioid receptors in the central nervous system. The actions in the central nervous system are also responsible for side effects such as sedation, respiratory depression and intoxication. Using narcotic analgesics for a long time increases the risk of dependence. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn i have had fibromyalgia since 2001, i was on vicadin for many yrs. they did not help manage my pain, i am now on 10.mg oxycodone 3 times a day, they are not touching this horrific pain, i have asked my dr. to try another pain medication but he will not. i am not a dr. but i do no that there are many, many other & stronger pain meds. out there that he could try 7 see if another would work, i always have thought that with having fibro it is trial 7 error, how can i convince my dr.
Avatar f tn I was let go whats the chances of me getting another pain dr. I've got fibromyalgia, DDD,thinning in my padding in my spinal cord. She fired me and I've been on 15mg of oxycodone. Dropped cold turkey its killing me and I'm scared what can I do. Will i be ably to get another pm dr?? I know i screw up but my pills were stolen from my daughter.
Avatar n tn I've tried gabapentin several times in addition to being on oxycontin and oxycodone (and some other meds at the same time.) I did find it helped with the pain but I had a bad side effect in that it made me slur my words (to the point people thought I was drunk and I don't drink.) Also, you cannot stop it cold turkey due to a seizure risk but it's not like you have withdrawals like you do with narcotics. I would also make sure you see how it affects you before driving.
Avatar f tn Coadministration of oxycodone with serotonin reuptake inhibitors has been associated with development of the serotonin syndrome. The mechanism of interaction is unknown. Unlike other analgesics such as phenylpiperidine opioids (e.g., meperidine) and tramadol, oxycodone is not known to possess serotonergic activity and has not previously been associated with the serotonin syndrome.
Avatar f tn He is 33 years old and has stenosis in his cervical spine, quickly advancing arthritis in his cervical spine and low back, and has additional pain from having multiple knee surgeries (one of which was botched by kaiser), a complete thyroidectomy (due to thyroid cancer 6 years ago), and a car accident in the past which rotated his sacrum. He has also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn Or would other things such as Oxycodone show up? On the website of the lab I use, it states only those two - that's why I'm asking! I've never been to pain management before, I just didn't know if this was a standard test or if they are searching out specific drugs etc. Does Quest Diagnostics automatically test for things such as Oxycodone, for example? Meaning do they automatically test for the "expanded opiates" even though they weren't ordered by my doc?
Avatar n tn You should definitely seek consultation with a Rheumatologist, preferably one with much experience in the diagnosis and treatment of fibromyalgia. He/she may also wish to consult with a pain specialist in an attempt to sort out the root causes of your multiple pains. You should also consult with a Cardiologist, preferably one with experience with pulmonary emboli and pulmonary hypertension, although treatment of the latter often lies in the purview of a Pulmonologist.
