I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you with you question.
Oxycodone doesn't cause weight gain. Maybe you don't burn too many calories because of your pain and have to take care with your diet. It makes sense to take 2 Oxycodone a day, because it loses its effect after twelve hours. 30 mg twice a day is far too much, though! This is a dosage we use for cancer patients. I would take two or ther 10 mg pills a day an put i.e. ibuprofene on top if this isn't sufficient enough.
Yes, Oxycodone patients sometimes retain fliuids. You would see that in your legs that would develop edema.
It's not a real weight gain when it's water.
Are we done, or is there still a question left?
