I would just like to say that if you are a legit chronic pain sufferer then there will be a medication prescribed that will do tue same as before. There is no way the patients would be made to suffer needlessly by our government as they know that a very serious class-action lawsuit would happen if chronic pain sufferers were not given there medications. If you are using a oxycontin type medication then we all will continue to recieve a very similar type of opiate for chronic pain.

You are correct in that the largest dosage of OxyContin in a single tablet is 160mg. However, according to the FDA, "With pure opioid agonist analgesics, there is no defined maximum dose; the ceiling to analgesic effectiveness is imposed only by side effects, the more serious of which may include somnolence and respiratory depression." The maximum dosage of OxyContin (or oxycodone) is patient-specific and dependent upon your previous exposure to opioids as well as, of course, the side effects.
