Yes ,Thank You Zomby.
I also used the Patch,I did not get as good pain relief as Oxy.This was
about 3 years ago.I used 75mg patches every 2 days.
I take Oxy every 8 hours.It used to last for about 6 hours,now I get 4 hours
if lucky.I also take OxyIR every 4 hours for Break through right now.
]On my first post I said I have been using Oxy for over 5 years it has been
over 7 years.I started with 40mg,than 80mg,than 120mgs,than 160mgs,etc.
Hoping to get some sleep yet tonight,even though it is near dawn.
Have a pain free as possible day!
