After trying hard for almost 4 months David has endured long enough some nasty side effects to Oxycontin and/or Oxynorm. Pain relief has been very good but thos side effects are too much and outweigh the pluses. Together with a spell in hospital over Christmas its been rough for him. Oh yes and yesterday's endoscopy revealed bits we'd rather it hadn't
Wonderful Dr James at pain clinic is changing Oxycontin 70mgx2 daily and Oxynorm 10mgx2 daily to a lower dose + putting him on Butrams patches. First apt with GP is Monday then we will know what dose consultant is looking to.
Not a combination I've come across before so any advice what to expect be greatfully recieved. Assume as with all strong meds it will be lower to start with.
