This post is for anyone of you who can perhaps advise me about starting oxycodone or not. As I have said I have been on 30 mg. codeine for many years but for quite a while this has not been helping much at all - perhaps easing symptoms for about an hour before they break through again. What are the pros and cons of oxycodone? Can you have augmentation on it and does it work for quite a while before this happens. What do you do if there is augmentation? I see my doc on Monday and I have already had my serum ferritin result which was 189. I suppose at this level there is no need for iron. My RLS is primary - my mother suffered it and both my daughter and son have it. What a thing to pass on to one's family!!!!
Anyhow I would love to hear from you. I have been on pramipexole, gabapentin and Lyrica in the past but was unable to take any of these because of severe side effects.
I worry about taking opioids constantly but RLS is completely out of control with flailing and jerking arms and legs during night and very little sleep.
Thank you so much.
