how long does 5mg oxycodone last

I would like to chime in here. If all possible do not take oxycontin er. I have been on them for 7 years now. I was taking Norco for a muscle disease I got for chemicals when I was in the army. I had a heart attack later on and my doctor at the time said I had to take these OXY. That it was safer if I knew what I know know I would have punched him in the mouth. I was on 140 mg er. I am now chemically dependant on them. It's miserable up and down wake up in the morning in full blown withdrawals. I have been self tapering myself off of them. This is a very very miserable. I am now down to 10 mg 3 times a day. Getting ready to go to ir's. I dropped 10mg ever couple of weeks to get here. I will never take another opiate when I can get off. If you are in my boat I am here to say you ... ...

Oxycodone HCl 5mg doesn't last long enough

Hey! So a little background on myself, I have been dealing with back pain for over 5 years, and finally switched to a new clinic who has confirmed that I have MS and Ankylosing Spondylitis Reactive Arthritis. I also have 2 discs out of place (L3 and L4). My doctor recently started me on Oxycodone HCl 5mg every 4-6 hours, but not to exceed 4 per day. Well here is my issue: they last a whopping hour and a half tops. So then I have to sit around in pain while being a stay-at-home mother to a 2 y/o, for at least another 2 hours. But I don't want to take more than prescribed, and I am not sure what to do at this point. Is there anything that lasts longer than this?? Thank you in advance! ## Hello, KLM0116! How are you? It is normal for your doctor to want to start you off with the lowest... ...

how strong is a 5mg oxycodone pill

I am taking 5mg (blue tablet) twice a day for back discomfort. I’ve been on it for quite s while I would say couple of yrs. I want to know if it can cause me to have a seizure every so often. They can’t find out any cause for them. I have no history of them or no one else in my family has seizures. I never ever had them before. I also get hot flushes through my whole body that last about 5 minutes or so every once in awhile. I want to go off them. How do I go about it. Is there a pill less strength than 5 mg(oxycodone). ## That is the lowest strength that I am aware is available, though if it is a regular release formulation, you should be able to cut it to lower the dosage, with your physician's approval. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habi... ...

how long it take for oxycodone to wear off

How long does feeling last he took one and 5 325 oxcodone his arms here but the not the feel he took at 6pm ## Hi Connie, It's a little difficult to understand the entirety of your post due to grammatical errors, but immediate release oxycodone has an estimated half-life of 4 hours - At which point only 2.5mg out of the 5mg would still be active. I believe this is why typical adult dosing charts suggest taking 1 tablet every 4-6 hours as needed for around the clock pain relief. 5mgs is also the smallest available dosage of oxycodone (at least to my knowledge) - So you could always talk with your doctor about going up to 7.5mg or 10mg if the 5mg isn't sufficient. I hope this helps! ...

is it safe to take 5mg of oxycodone

I take 5mg of oxycodone about once a day for a TKR, I don't normally mix drugs and alcohol but I was bored so I waited 16hrs before I had 3 mixed drinks, each mixed drink I had was in a tall glass with less then a 1/4 of hard liquor and a lot of ice and to the top with pop and it took me 5hrs to drink 3 drinks and now its been 5hrs sense my last drink so how long do I have to wait to take a 5mg of oxycodone and no I didn't get a buzz from the drinks and I'm still myself (normal). ## Brenda, It sounds like you already know the answers, you're just looking for permission to justify imbibing and ingesting a powerful narcotic opiate/opioid. MOST folks here are genuinely attempting to provide valid information not to pass judgement on anyone's behavior. Someone with a min... ...

How long do i wait after taking oxycodone and Tylenol3to res

How long after taking last Tylenol3and oxycodone 5mg can i restart my suboxon ## Hello, Charles! How are you? You must be in full withdrawal from everything else, before you can take Suboxone, otherwise, it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been on oxycodone 10mg and 10mg opana er . I tapered, I'm down to only one oxycodone 10mg and 1 opana 10mg. I have my suboxone but after reading several posts I'll have to admit I'm scared to death to take it. Does anyone think If I j... ...

Oxy Ir 60mg Oxycodone

what color do these pills look like? ## There is no 60mg of the instant release Oxycodone, it is only available in 5mgs. There is a time released tablet in 60mgs, called Oxycontin, which would have the marking OC or OP on one side and a 60 on the opposite side. The tablets should be red. This is a potent narcotic, so it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## there is oxycontin 30mg instant release but that is as high as instant release goes. ## oxycodone does not just come in 5mgs. They also come in 10s 15s, 20s, and 30s. I know cause I've had all of them within the last year. I suffer from chronic pancreatitis. Oxycodone does not come in 60mgs.

oxycodone and alcohol

I take 5MG oxycodone 2x a day. Last dose was yesterday 4am and 3pm. Is it safe for me to drink next day, late afternoon? ## Hi survivor, According to research from, drinking alcohol with oxycodone in your system can cause potentially dangerous side effects such as difficulty breathing, confusion, dizziness, slurred speech, and impaired cognitive function. For those reasons they recommended that patients avoid alcohol during the course of treatment. The interaction between these two drugs also categorizes it as having a "high interaction potential". This may mean that even just a few sips of something could do you in. Better to play it safe in my opinion. Hope this helps! ...

How long will my pain medication last

I was prescribed 120 pills on April 17th. The dosing guidelines say to take 1 pill every 6 hours. When should I run out of medicine? ## Generally when you get pain meds from Pain Management or any other doc really and it will be taken on a regular basis, they give you what they expect to last 30 days and if you take 1 pill every six hours that should last 30 days. Patients get confused when they receive pain meds that state take one or two every 4-6 hours as needed for pain and say get 60. The Doctor generally still expects that bottle to last 30 days no matter what the instructions say. The Doctor or nurse really should make that clear. Anyway, you should have enough for a month. ## I am prescribed 30 5mg immediate release Oxycodone to take every 6hrs. How long will that prescription l... ...

Oxycodone keeps me awake

I have taked oxycodone and hydrocodone over the last 30 years due to chronic kidney stones (I have passed, or had removed, well over 50 stones in my lifetime) and a severely scarred ureter on my left side. Often I go several days without having to take a half of a Hydrocodone 5/325. That is my "go to" dose when my side starts to ache, and it usually takes the edge off. If not, I will take another half, or if it seems to be getting worse, an Oxycodone 5mg. They work just fine, but if I take an Oxy near bedtime. I won't get to sleep for about 6 hours. I don't feel agitated or hyped up, I just can't get to sleep. During the daytime, if I have to take an Oxy, I don't feel much other than the pain subsiding and a little bit of a euphoric feeling. I am very fortunate i... ...

5 mg oxycodone withdrawal

Was on Norco 10-325 on and off for a few years due to back problems. Had l4/l5 Laminectomy and was sent home with 5mg oxicodone. It's been 16 days since surgery and I tapered down from 2.5 yesterday.

5 mg oxycodone withdrawal help

I've tapered down from 20 mg oxycodone ( for 3 months for back pain) to 5mg for the last eight days. I want to get this process over with, of course. I could drop to 2.5 for week or just stop oxycodone now and prepare for the symptoms. My dr has given me adavan and clonidine. Advice please. ## So, you sent from 4 x 5mg per day to 1 x 5mg per day? Is your pain under control? 3 months isn't that long of time. If I were you, I'd change to 2.5 mg 2x per day then cut it to 2.5 once a day then that is it. ## When you think u tapperd down enough dont do none for 2 whole days then after 48 hours take a little bit, but dont get all loaded. Just take the edge off a little so you will sleep and wake up almost normal. I'm about to do it, hopefully i can quit. It's a mother f***e... ...

Ran out of Oxycodone 3 days early.

I take 2 5mg oxycodone tablets 3 times a day for the last two years., sometimes a couple extra over that. I had a disk problem with major pain. My back has been doing much better for about 8 months now, I can actually walk again without my left leg giving out on me. Now my problem is I can't get off these damn things. I had tapered a couple months ago down to nothing and didn't have the awful withdrawal symptoms I have heard about, some discomfort but not terrible. I thought I was done but as life goes another issue popped up and I ended up with a kidney stone, never experienced such pain in my life, so I had to reach for the oxy again, very disappointing. I never realized when I started taking this med just how addictive they really are and my doctor never explained this to me ... ...

I have been on Oxycodone for the last bunch of years for a work related back injury.I had been receiving the 5 m.g/325 tecs,but last time they refilled my prescription,I was given a smaller APO on one side and 5 with a line underneath it than 325 under that on the other side.They are quite smaller than the Tecs,they don't feel like they are controlling my pain when needed,like the Tecs did.I live in Canada,I just feel like these are a placebo and there trying to get me off the Oxycodones.Are these pills real,I don't receive any relief. ## Have they not helped, at all? Or do they just not provide as much relief as the others did? They contain 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen.

Getting a new prescription for oxycodone.

I have been given one prescription for 5mg of oxycodone after a spinal fusion surgery on L4&5, one prescription of 5 mg oxycodone for total hip surgery, and another prescription for the same for shingles within the last four years at different times. I used all the pills at those times. Now, there are days that my back where I had the fusion kills me that I can barely walk. Do I go back to the orthopedic doctor who did the surgery? With all that's going on with these controlled substances, will I get them without a problem, or do I get them from my primary care doctor if I show him the bottles? Over the counter does nothing for my back pain. I am 72 years old. ## Hello, Ann! How are you? Do you have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, speaking to them about your pain, so they c... ...

I Have Been On 5 Mg Oxycodone For 2 Yrs The Last 4 Days Taking Tramadol And No So Far Am Fine Out

I have been on 5mg oxycodone 3 to 4 times a day for 2 yrs. 5 days ago i started taking tramadol instead, I am out of the woods yet with the oxycodone addiction ## It can take several weeks for all possible withdrawal symptoms to disappear, especially after being on it for so long, so you should still proceed with caution. Did your doctor recommend the use of Tramadol? Because it can also be habit forming. ## Be very careful with tramadol!!! It's prone to giving seizures. I NEVER had a seizure in my life and I'm 42 now. I took Ultram/tramadol and I had a full blown seizure ## 4% of the poulation become as addicted to tramadol as H, and the withdrwal is the same...

How Long Does it take for fentanyl 25 mcg withdrawals to start and stop

i have been on fentanyl 25mcg for about a yr. i am decreasing to 12.5 mcg for a week and then no more patches after. how long will it take to considering the info. will it take for the withdrawal to start and stop. i understand everyone is different. i will be taking valium 5mg for a couple days to ease the effects. any info would be great. ## Yes, everyone is different, so it really makes it hard to say, because it is going to vary. I stopped heavy doses of Oxycodone and Morphine cold turkey, after being on them for about 6 or 7 years for pain management and my withdrawal symptoms lasted for about a month. Hopefully the Valium will help. Has your doctor given you any other advice? ## Thanks for ur info. Several yrs ago I stopped fiorcet w codeine (on it for 4 yrs) and it took about tha... ...

oxycodone vs tramadol which is more effective

5mg oxycodone vs 50mg tramadol which is more effective for pain? Is tramadol safe for someone who is not supposed to have nsads? ## Hi Bill, Please don't take my word alone for this, but I've heard other patients say that 100mg of Tramadol is about as potent as a 5mg Oxycodone. Even though everyone's tolerance is different, statements like this certainly go to show that Oxycodone exhibits far more powerful analgesic effects than Tramadol. However, if you're thinking of switching between the two I'd definitely recommend discussing this with your doctor first, just to be sure you're taking what's truly considered to be an equivalent strength for the desired effects. To answer your last question about Tramadol being safe for someone who isn't supposed to hav... ...
