I have been taking oxycontin for break through back pain for 15+ yrs. I currently take 90 mg of morphine sulfate ER three times per day to alleviate the pain caused by multiple back surgeries due to spinal stenosis from disc disease and spondylolisthesis. Two yrs ago I suffered multiple fractures with implanted hardware that broke through previous fusions and into my sacral joints. This resulted in two major surgeries, which required fusing my SI joints and hardware & fusions from S2 up through T12. I was prescribed Cymbalta for neuropathic pain over 10 yrs ago. So now I'm taking oxycodone with Cymbalta, which is highly dangerous because BOTH can cause hypertensive crisis when taken individually.
