Helen, yes my day is pretty full. I get up at 5:30 and take my meds, then another dose at 9:45 in the evening. I know in the mornings when I get up, I have tremendous pain then it goes down by noon. Evenings it starts all over. I am going to go in next week and see if we can work with the dosage. Thanks for the info.

I'm not sure what the average is but, since actually the oxy only lasts
about 6 hours it depends on how long your day is.  I explained to my pain
specialist that I was up and going at 6 which would be my first dosage, then
the pain would start again by 12, so at 6 p.m. it would start again.
Therefore, I needed an amount for 3 times a day.  He agreed totally and had
no problem prescribing it for three times a day and, as I said previously,
something for breakthrough pain.  Also, I was prescribed valium as a muscle
relaxer.  Good luck with your doctor and I hope he understands that you need
a higher dosage in order to keep you at a more comfortable level.
