Reported Results
Benefits:   IT WORKED FOR RELIEVING SOME OF MY NECK AND BACK PAIN. PLEASE NOTE, MY CAUSE OF PAIN WAS DUE TO SURGERY PAIN AND NOT YOUR NORMAL KIND OF BACK PAIN. I MUST SAY THAT IT JUST KIND OF TOOK THE EDGE OFF OF THE SEVERE PAIN I WAS FEELING. AS TIME WENT ON I BEGAN TO HEAL AND FEEL MUCH BETTER AND NOW IT TENDS TO WORK MUCH BETTER.
Side effects:   SOMETIMES TROUBLE BREATHING AND TROUBLE URINATING. ALSO, FELT DROWSY DURING THE DAY. THE BREATHING AND THE URINATING PROBLEMS STOPPED AFTER ABOUT A WEEK ON THIS MEDICATION. AS FOR THE DROWSY FEELING, I STILL EXPERIENCE THAT AND TRY NOT TO DRIVE WHILE ON THIS MEDICATION. I EXPERIENCE NO OTHER SIDE EFFECT EVEN THOUGH I AM STILL TAKING THE MEDICATION.
Comments:   DUE TO A SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT, I NEEDED TO GET BACK SURGERY FOR MY CONDITION. THE TYPE OF SURGERY I HAD WAS CALLED ANTERIOR CERVICAL DISKECTOMY AND FUSION FOR CERVICAL DISC DISPLACEMENT. THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED OXYCODONE ALONG WITH NAPROXEN. I RARELY TOOK THE NAPROXEN BUT TOOK THE OXYCODONE FOUR TIMES A DAY FOR TWO MONTHS. AT THIS TIME, I STILL TAKE THE MEDICATION ONLY WHEN I FEEL I NEED IT - APPROXIMATELY ONCE OR TWICE A DAY.
