I am sorry you have bad arthritis

did the 3/500 help your arthritis? that drop of 500 to 325 is really in tylenol or acetamenophen dose

you can take a 200mg ibuprofen with your oxycodone 5/325 which could help your arthritis pains better.

make sure you take your pain pills with food in your stomach already, never empty stomach

and with plenty of water

and make sure you are not constipated by your oxycodone.

have you tried celexa for your arthritis?
