That's actually not a 5mg Oxycodone tablet, that's a 30mg Oxycodone tablet and it's actually listed as being an immediate release formulation, so it would be a generic for OxyIR.
And if you were used to taking the 5mg, then this is quite a jump in dosage and you need to proceed with caution. You may experience more side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation.
If it is too high of a dosage, you may also start to show the signs of CNS depression, which could include extremed drowsiness and sedation, shallow breathing and lowered heart rate and blood pressure.
What lead you to believe these were only 5mg tablets?

dude...smarten up. I have chronic issues from a broken back and so on...people that take advantage are the reason why I had to suffer for as long as I did in order to prove I Was worthy of help. Be smart, its not just you it effects...I tried commiting suicide cuz doc wouldnt prescribe anything and ptsd took over, they finally realized the truth and since then I have what I need for help and I am on paper as not able to become addicted since I dont form any withdrawels.

Dude that's absurd..It is impossible to be "put on paper" saying you can not form an addiction to opiates.. They're opiates there fore if you take them long enough and your dose is high enough...I bet my life twice over you'll be addicted.

Technically speaking it is not addicted its dependent and i myself have no withdraws from pain meds either and im on opana and have been for over a year but with the excception of hurting without them i do not get sick. Addicts dont know when to stop.

I can assure you that the person saying they do not withdraw on pain meds is absolutely telling the TRUTH!!!! Don't be so quick to discount how some people react to being on pain meds then are able to go off them without going into withdrawal. I know this to be a fact because I've been taking pain meds for 7 years, EVERYDAY. I've had 4 back surgeries, two of those were fusions, and have several other issues that cause chronic pain. I was taking oxycontin for 3 yrs and "I" asked to taken off of it as I hated being questioned by pharmacists and just sterotyped all the time. I was taking 80mg, 3 times a day and 30mg oxycodone for breakthrough pain. I didn't want to taper down, I just wanted off, so we decided to just use the 30mg 4 times a day and start taking tramadol again. This worked well for me, and I NEVER went into any withdrawal from stopping the oxycontin. During the past several years I've stopped taking the 30mg cold turkey numerous times for two weeks at a time and NEVER experienced any withdrawls. I consider myself to be very lucky because I've heard and seen on shows such as Intervention how horrible withdrawls can be, and I'm incredibly blessed that for whatever reason, I don't have to experience them. I feel sorry for those that have to go through it.

Of course you never went through withdrawls, you were still taking oxy 30's every day haha. The only difference between oxycodone and oxycontin is instant release vs extended. Same opiate. You didnt get withdrawls because you didnt quit haha. Jesus...

Maybe you need to reread my post. I said that numerous time I stopped cold turkey taking the 30mg oxycodone and net went through withdrawl. Read before you post.

Lisa you are still on tramadol correct its non-narcotic but makes the brain think its on opiates that would ease your withdraw from opiates and when in great pain as you said the mind doesnt think about getting a fix.Still you must be one heck of a fighter.

Harry..... yes I was still taking tramadol and if that's what has stopped me from experiencing withdrawls, then I'm very greatful. A fighter I'm not, but thank you. I just try to get through each day with the cards I've been dealt.

Tramadol is now listed as a narcotic. It's the only thing that works for my fibromyalgia back pain and restless leg syndrome. I take marijuana and was always able to get them but now that they are listed as a narcotic I cant get them anymore but the jacka**** will give me somas; they r narcotic but do nothing for my pain or relaxation.

Chronically Painful Says:
I agree with the abuse and selling of these prescriptions causes us chronic pain patients to have a very hard time being taken seriously by doctors!!! I have IC and Fibro and I am in severe pain pretty much constantly. Now I'm unable to get the meds that were helping my pain!! People get your s*** together and stop denying true pain sufferers the relief we need!!!!

Sick in pain Says:
@Cronically Painful, I agree with you 100% .... The ones that actually are in need of the pain medication are unable to get what they need due to these *****s who "fake" a problem or use recreationally. In turn, not realizing what they are doing to the people that are chronically in pain 24/7. It's a sad selfish world when the chronically ill are labeled as drug addicts.

I hope this goes to the person I'm trying to send it to. Thankfully I've made it far enough into recovery that long responses like yours explain how you don't have to personally deal with withdrawal symptoms is really nice. I've never said this to anyone else, cause normally if anyone is saying anything similar to you, they're normally being rude to those who do know what it feels like. Just like some people responded angrily at you, don't blame them, it's hard for us on this side to be nice to those who aren't/haven't been. One last thing, thank you for explaining the way you did about how people may not experience withdrawals and using yourself as the explanation. Thank you very much. Just as you said though, please never forget to be thankful for just how lucky you happen to have been made by nature, it's still a lot easier for you to deal with being treated like me/us than actually being one of us.

Tony...I think your message was directed at me and if so. Thank you for not being rude. I'm truly sorry for those that have to go through withdrawal, I feel for them. I've seen enough shows to understand it must be a brutal experience and It gave me an understanding why people do give up and start the drugs again, as it's much easier than going through withdrawal. I can't explain why I have never had to experience it and I understand why people get angry that I dont. I would probably be upset as well if someone could take pain meds for years daily and just stop cold turkey and go about they're day normally. I've gone off the meds many times but have always gone back on, not because I wanted to but because I would be immobile and my quality of life would be nonexistent. I continue to try other noninvasive options at every chance I get, hoping to not have to remain on pills. I will be 50 in 2 years and don't want to have to rely on pills to function. Right now the combination of medicine and inj's. are working ok at best right now and I'm scheduled to try a newer procedure in two weeks. Anyway, good luck in your recovery, you sound like your doing well being half way through it. Stay strong.
