Hey Bucky: I don't know everything about your case, but from what you have told and my own experience, I think Methadone might be the best too. I had the same thing happen that you did with the Oxycontin. My tolerance went through the roof. I was only on it for a little over a year, and I was taking 160 mg TID. Also, I had Oxycodone (Oxy IR) for breakthrough pain.

I'm now on Methadone and have been for almost three years. Once my doctor got my dose titrated up, I haven't had a dose change and I take no BT meds. Sure, there are some side effects, but I'm on Social Security Disability, so I'm able to cope. The one that does bother me the most, is I can't drive for any long distance. I get very sleepy. I have to take a minimal amount of my Meth before leaving and that helps. Once we are at our destination, I can take more and get out of pain usually. I take 60 mg TID or 180 a day.

If I can help with any other information please let me know. Good luck with this.
