    Default need help with oxycodone


    this is my first post here and i really enjoy in this forum

    I want advice about my case please

    First thing I had cancer Hodgkin's lymphoma in the 4 stage with bone involvement
    I am now in chemotherapy treatmeant

    I use oxycodone IR to relieve pain 20 mg every 4 hours from more than 5 mounth

    And I think I'm addicted to this painkillers

    and i Took this if i hade pain or sometime i didn't had pain

    And I want help in this

    and i want to did n't take these medicen

    In other words, if I leave it now would cause me withdrawal symptoms
    but maybe after 2 day i feel pain from cancer and must take it again and feel again withdrawal symptoms

    my friend told me that the addictive is least problems of cancer patients
    he mean as long as you had cancer, painkillers addiction is not considered a problem in itself
    you in the disease biggest from addiction

    thanks you

    I'm sorry no one answered your post. When you take the oxy when you don't need them that is addictive behavior. Are you taking them the way the doctor ordered? Make sure you are only taking the prescribed amount. Your friend is right addiction or dependence on the oxy can be dealt with later, your primary concern should be dealing with your cancer. You absolutely can go off of the oxy later on. Watch that you don't take any more than the doctor prescribes to you. If you you don't want to take them anymore, discuss alternatives with your doctor.

    Please take care of the pain and your will have the best counseling and help withdrawing from your meds when needed....there are many medications that may require people tapering off of...perhaps none you are on for your condition..but not just opiates or drugs like Valium for instance ..It depends on the drug, how long you have taken, etc.
    These forums are here to help but talk to your dr about concerns and he and the cancer team can help you not feel ashamed to be out of pain!
