Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (13 months ago):

  • My physician said to me when she started me on Zoloft 50mg a day, That there is some interaction between the zoloft and both Oxycodone 20mg / day and Methadone 20mg /day. I've noticed that my pain level seems to be higher than normal and for longer time periods than what I had been experiencing these past three or four months and also that when I use the oxycontin 5 mg for "break through pain it doesn't even come close to doing anything literally zero coverage if that's possible. I ifrst thought that mabye I got a bad batch of pills mabye ones that had expired perhaps?- or they are very nearly ready to expire as the effect from them was nonexistant.

    I do not believe they are supossed to give you oxycodone and methadone at the same time and 20mg a day is not very much, your doctor probably thinks he's passifying you! I am also told that the oxycontine is the management and the other breakethru. I dont really see the logic. you'ld think the stronger med is for when the weaker med fails. depending on your problem like mine I have to yake muscle relaxant with my meds or I just hurt worse!


    jimmy on Apr, 29, 2013:

    you probaby don't notice because oxycontin is the same as oxycodone. oxycodone (percocet) has acetaminophen (tylanol) where oxycontin is just the pain reliever but time release. If you are like me the pain meds by themselves cause cerebral hemraging (pressure increase in the cerebral and spinal fluid) same thing just hurts the most where the problem is! For instance, if you have had bad back problems. My case my brain feels like it is trying to explode out of my head! It also has become popular for doctors to imediatly say your hurtting because of depression! reflect back on your life very carefully and get a second oppinion from a very close friend, determine if you are depressed because of the pain or did the pain come out of a depressive streak? Be causious, I have tried every anti depressant out there just to passify the doctors with negative side effects from all of them. Never let them try you on cymbalta, after one and a half weeks I found myself picturing with sutch clarity that It felt real, I was going to go out and shoot myself then I realized I handed my life over to God and hadn't been on that trac until I had started the antidepressant. Not long after I visited a friend unknowing to me that his wife had just comitted suicide in her car and I was just intime to help him clean the car up so he could sell the memory away. Guess what I had learned she had been taking 'cymbalta'! She was a Christian as well and he didn't see it comming! So unless you actually have a problem with depression, be careful. If you don't have a chemical imbalance medications will create one. Find a church that has a Celebrate Recovery program and deal with the issues before you get to deep into medications. Don't just stop what you are taking because what I say, try the recovery program and weene yourself of those things if that works for you, there is always a chance someone there may have some good insite to your situation. Worth the try!
