I had been taking Vicodin (Hydrocodon)Valtarin, & others with out having much pain reduction. I was up to 10 of the 7.5 Vicodin aday. My PCP then put me on MSContin 15mg at bed time only. I noticed a big difference, I cut my vicodin down to 4 aday. Then my PCP changed it to oxycontin, it didnt seem to help much, I had increased pain, but them my pharmasist told me I needed to get my pain under control again & to take 2 of the oxycontin, & take the vicodin for the break through pain. My pain is much more under control now, but I havent been sleeping well. I only have a few more days of the oxycontin, & then I will be able to go back on the MSContin. The MSContin seems to help a great deal more, it especially lets me sleep all night long, & it also reduces the break through pain during the day.
