I have on oxy for many years due to my pancreas. I still have problems with it but want off oxycontin. I dont have pain every day anymore. I am droping 10 mg every week. I am on 30 durning the day and 20 at night. I dont know what to do when I get to 10 mg. I will cut off and how do I handle the vomiting. I vomit blood because I also have hital hernia. Need help any advice? I already take vomiting meds and they dont help my pancreas.

Hi there,
I'm not a medical professional, but with you vomiting blood, I would go tell your doctor you want to come off the oxy and get his/her advice and assistance and go from there.  Is that an option for you?  

Good luck.  Keep posting, I'm sure others with more info will chime in.  :)

With your medical history, you definitely want to taper under the supervision and guidance of your doctor, and I agree that you need to let your doc know asap about the vomiting of blood.

Good luck to you!

Im not sure I understand your question. Are you vomiting because of your hernia or because of the pain medication?  Either way...vomiting blood is a serious issue that needs to be addressed by your doctor...not an internet forum.

In terms of the Oxy...your dose isnt that high so you should be fine coming off it once you formulate a good plan with your doc. Wish you the best.

Thank you for responding to my question. I have chronic Pancreas problems. I have been on oxy for five years. I am now down to 20 mg at night and 30 during day. My question is when I wean off completely will I still vomit because I did do a slow taper off. When I vomit sometimes I vomit blood,. I am frequently hospitalized. I have been out for two month almost. I am doing good now. but at the last 10 mg. How bad will the withdrawl be since I was on for many years?
