... me to 150 mic every 72 hours which did not work at first. I think it was a little bit of withdrawal coupled with the fact that I was needing an increase of the Oxycontin which was due anyway. As I understand it, on the scale the 80 mg dose equals the 150 mics of Duragesic. ... (4 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)

... 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)

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)
