I take an Oxycontin 10 mg. every 1-3 days. I am struggling, trying not to take anymore than that for now. If I can get by on it then I want to. It hasn't been easy. This drug has been a God-send for me. I take one, and for 12 hours, I don't have any problems. My life is almost back to normal for those precious 12 hours. I am sorry it doesn't work as well for you. Hopefully your FP will keep looking for the right meds to work for you.
