I recently (last week) had a large non-cancerous tumor removed from my knee. In order for the doctors to get it all out, they had to take my knee apart (get in all the joints, flip the knee cap up and clean under it etc) and put it back together. I have been prescribed Oxycodone for the pain. However since I have been taking it I am waking up from sleeping with having horrible nightmares. Has anyone else experienced side effects like this while on Oxycodone? Also any tips on dealing with the dreams? They are so vivid and honestly disturbing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Pain killers generally have side effects that include odd dreams, in many cases they are nightmares.

Oxycodone and nightmares
I am having the same side effect from taking oxycodone after my c section. I am now afraid to sleep as my nightmares are so disturbing and vivid. I am going to call my doctor in the morning to have my meds switched to something else.
