how do i start a med change conversation with my doctor? i know there are a lot of people who abuse pain meds, and it is hard enough to get a doctor to help anyway. but the meds im on dont seem to work as well.ive been on the same meds since may of 07 and i start to feel pain as soon as 1 hr after taking them. can anyone relate? and if so what did you do to fix the problem? if anyone has any advice i would appreciate it. thank you in advance.
