I am not sure if you chronic painers i call US. Well theres an herbal medicine that when taking after the first week or 2. It allows you to take 1-2 of your dosing instead of maybe 5 or 6 a day well after continuing with this medicine after a week or two you can take just 1 or 2 a day to reach the same as 5 or 6 would do previously. The medicine is called DLPA DL-Phenylalanine, i got a great site to buy them 300 500mg capsules for only 20 bucks. I have been taking it and it makes me so energetic and feeling great ive never had anything like it. Ive been basically a lab rat to off narcotic drugs from my fam doc. Check with your doctor first but to me this really really helps me cope w/ everyday.
