It's basically Percocet, Narcotic Pain Killer. Yes, they can screw you up, but as long as you are taking it under the direction of a Doctor, I wouldn't worry.

Don't start using them recreationally however, and watch your alcohol intake when popping those suckers, bad news.

I've had it when I got my Wisdom teeth yanked a number of years ago. They definitely kill pain

I hear it can affect your grammar and spelling abilities. I'd stay away from it.

You could do that any night of the week. Personally, I wouldn't take those pills for pain.

They are time release, so don't chew them. That will jack you up. I've never personally had one, but I know the deal. My problem is, unless it is a capsule, pills and I don't go together very well. Hell, I chew up my blood pressure pill so I don't choke on it. Evidently it is pretty easy to get hooked on, so unless I am dying, and it doesn't make a damn, I will never take one.

Well, I suppose that is an option! It got so bad in my native southwestern part of VA, that there was an article in the Roanoke Times and they called it "Hillbilly Heroin". Huge problem with it there at one time. Not sure how it is now.

I've been on it for three different surgeries. ( ACL patella graft in '02 and two shoulder surgeries in '13 )

It works very well for dulling pain. The problem some folks have with it is the good feeling ( don't give a shit and being carefree ). Alcohol does intensify the effect and I limited myself to one 12 oz beer.

If used as prescribed and not upping doses yourself, it is fine to take. If you have a control problem ( meaning you could allow it to take charge ), then it's not a good pain management option.

It works, but I wouldn't drive on it. You get pretty jacked up and they could hit you with a DUI if they decided to be anal.

The side effects are not bad, that's the whole problem. Take it as directed, don't have more than a single beer (or similar), and you'll do fine.

We bid a oxy plant a couple of years ago, the thing I remember about it: It had a D.E.A. office area in the plant.

I was told to take some when I had an implant done....did not do a thing for the pain but did stop me from taking a crap instantly ! I don't bother now if I'm told to take them ...I'll deal with the pain.

If your back is out of whack, take the painkillers, BUT also stretch.

Search for stretching exercises. Back in October I pulled my back and went to the gym to stretch it. They have a fitness stretching station



I did all stretching exercises, and it helped. If you choose to stretch ensure not to hyperextend. Also working out your lower back will help.

Can't stretch, certainly not like shown....extra vert in my lo back, called Spondalitis L6 I have two bones growing together as cartilage is missing

but I do have a weight lifting bare bar, and over my shoulders and do some trunk twisters every once in a while.....

Thanks guys, I read that link on that OXY stuff....interesting....

I not told the Doc about my decision so far, want to reach some conclusion before I open my mouth.....
