exalgo
Exalgo is very strong but it takes a few days to get up to full strength in the body. I take 2 oxycodone 10mg every 4 hours but after being prescribed exalgo 16mg I just take one in the morning and I'm good all day. Only need the oxy when break through pain gets tough.

oxycodone/sleep apnea
It would be nice to have some kind of warning about comment length. Over half my last comment got cut off and lost, and nothing told me I had gone over any character limit. All that work, and pain, to type it out, and gone!

But different people do react differently to different drugs. It's a matter of you and your doctor deciding if the benefits outweigh the risks.

Although opioids do tend to give me apnea, I need the pain control, and so I accept the adverse effects. I take morphine, with oxy for breakthrough, because the methadone I used t

My daughter was on Oxy (presecribed by an incompetent GP) and after little over a year & Many pills later she became Psychotic from the meds. It was the only medicine she was taking & I watched the progression of the psychosis. I don't care what the drug companies Phony Reports say. Oxy Can Cause Psychosis---and it doesn't wear Off (even after the meds are stopped--we are over a year now!) and there Is No Cure. I hate the pharmaceutical companies they ruined my daughter's life--and her entire f

Also, I started out on 5 pain meds....down to just this one. And after being seen by a Maximized Living Chiropractor (beginning 11/2013) I have decreased the oxycodone by 30 pills a month - 3 months ago.

I am 45, female and have been on oxycodone for 9 years and do not have sleep apnea. The sleep study verified that. sorry, but meds don't have the same effect on everyone.
