Topic: Pain killers & nausea -- any suggestions?
To control my back pains, my doctor moved me from percocet onto oxycontin pain killers. The idea is to use a time released version of the oxycontin (2 20 mg tablets every 12 hours) and then supplement with 5mg tablets for any breakthrough pain.
I've noticed that when I take the main dose every 12 hours, I get very drowsy and feel somewhat nauseous (sp?). I think it might be better if I try balancing the dosage out (maybe 1x20mg every 6 hours so it is level loaded) or something. Wondering if anyone else has any ideas about how they have timed their pain killers to deal with similar issues?
