From this study (4 years ago):
I have to take oxycotin 20mg and any other pain killer because it doesn't stops my pain. I'm under high blood preasure medication, diabetes medicine, I have arthritis and I live under too much pain. My doctor never give me advice about how to manage my medicine, meaning I don't know if there is something wrong about taking so many pills and if they really work because I don't feel that my pain eases with the oxycotin so I take it and I have to take over thw counter pain killers as well, my doctor recently gave me vicodin, so I take oxycotin, metoprolol, vicodin, and the diabetic pill, everyday I take all of them day and night. Am wondering if my doctor should teach me how to take the medicine because I take them all at once but the pain is still there, are these medications interacting between each other or interfering they action, so that is why it doesn't work?
