... he doc had me take 40 mg. of methadone in the morning, then put on the patch. That was it! I didn't have any withdrawal from the methadone at all. I guess the Duragesic 100 patch was enough to cover me. ... (19 replies)
... mg. a day. Tried that for a month and it was better, but not much. I am now on Duragesic patches, 100 mg. and doing better. ... (15 replies)
... Everyone responds differently to different meds and doses. I'd just have a discussion with your doctor at your next appointment about how you have had an increase in pain lately (also specify if the pills aren't lasting as long as they used to, such as 4 hours instead of 6 hours or whatever). Yes, for chronic pain which hasn't responded to other treatments a long acting med... (14 replies)

... the doc did not adjust the dose, they just switched me back to the norco. During my last visit, I asked the doc to possibly switch me back to the oxycontin at a higher dose and take me off the norco but instead she put me on the fentanyl patch. I do know that the dose of oxycontin was the minumum. ... (4 replies)
... At 9 to 12 Norco per day you are taking near poisonous levels of acetaminophen. It seems unusual to go from Hydrocodone to fentanyl. When you tried Oxycontin, did they try adjusting the dosage ? (4 replies)
... It doesn't seem to be controlling the pain anymore so my doctor recommended the Duragesic patch. I've never heard of this patch so I'm trying to research it but cant find out how it compares to the hydrocodone. ... (4 replies)

... don't know what excuse he gave you for not doing that, but since the patch did not work, he could have raised the morphine or considered a different opiate like oxycontin or methadone. ... (7 replies)
... The make MSC in strenghts of 15, 30, 60, 100 and 200, you had plenty of room to adjust the dose. OxyContin comes in 10, 20, 40 and 80, notice the lower strengths available, because it's a stronger med. ... (8 replies)
... Weaver, To answer your question about different pain meds and names etc. You should first probably know that there are many "Brand" names that people get confused about. For instance, Lortab, Norco, Vicodon, are all Hydrocodone. You mentioned being on 5/500. This is a low dose of Hydrocodone and 500 mg of Tylenol. They make Hydro up to 10 mg and anywhere from 325 mg of... (10 replies)

... Hi Everybody: I'm not sure if I'm writing this to everyone or I'm writing to Tina and Hopeful, but I wanted to add a couple thoughts based on Tina's previous note. I think they just come from the fact I've been on the medication (Methadone) as well as several others over the years, so I've learned a lot by experience. As far as medication to sleep, Klonopin helps and tends... (9 replies)
... Hi chriztene, DAW means "Dispense As Written" and you may also see DNS "Do Not Substitue". If your doc writes DAW on your Rx, then some insurance companies will cover the cost and you just pay the higher co-pay. Some insurance companies, though, will not do this. Mine, for example. If I want brand name and a generic is available, then I would have to pay the higher... (29 replies)
... had a small increase which just pushed the side effecst over the edge. I had tried LA morphine sucesfully, but again lack of insurance had me back on meth, tried Duragesic and it simply didn't work so I had a pump implanted last year when I was 38. Treating pain with advance pain control system doesn't have an age requirement. ... (10 replies)

... Pandag...You might want to talk to your doctor and consider switching to Methadone. I have been on it for over two years after being on Oxycontin, Duragesic (Fentenyl) and and many short acting meds. It's one of the stronger meds in use and I feel it does a great job in controling my pain. I take no break through meds and Meth makes you a "Non clock watcher" that so many... (2 replies)
