Is Oxycodone the right medicine for severe leg pain?

I have been having pain from by buttocks down the back of my legs. My MD told me to take a oxycodone and a baclofen it help but when I got up to eat I felt like I was going to pass out. My husband helped me to bed and took my B/P it was 74/45. 8hours later my BP is 104/44.
