Re: Two very different doctors' visits

Hopefully others on oxycodone will respond. According to the book "Clinical Management of Restless Legs Syndrome", the usual dose range for oxycodone is 2.5 to 10 mg taken every 4 to 8 hrs.

I don't have access through my other resources yet, since it was only published on Friday. Even Google Scholar doesn't list it yet. Maybe in a week or two.
