Safe period of time for oxy?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently taking 10mg of oxycodone hcl. I take it every night to stop my nerve pain in my foot I've had since a motorcycle crash a few weeks ago. My concern is i don't want to have the oxy totally destroy my system. I know it's only one pill every 24 hours. But it still concerns me. Am I safe taking one at the same time every night until I can sort out my foot pain?

    Hi Dinik,

    Firstly I am very sorry to hear of your accident, I too had a motorbike crash in 2012 and have been left with severe pain ever since and I am lucky to be alive.

    10mg is quiet a low dose and if it’s helping with the pain then personally I would keep going with it, when you want or feel you no longer need them speak with your GP and they can reduce the dose to 5 mg then 2.5 if you are feeling the need for them.

    I hope this helps but any think you want to ask or know just let me know.

    Best regards and a speedy recovery.

    Sorry to hear about your accident.

    You're doing the right thing by reducing before it increase when your body gets used too it & you need more and more.

    This stuff very nearly killed me & totally destroyed my life.

    Good luck & take care.
