I have read alot of post's here at the site, and you all have alot of good feed back and common sense in your reply's. I have a question about my meds, I have been on methadone for about 2 years now, Started at 30mg and now at 80mg a day. I get cervical and lumbar injections about every 4 months. The methadone has got to the point, that it is not working. I dont know if 80mg a day is a high dose or not. I have tried kadian before, but did not last even 4 to 6 hours. My PM said if I want to switch to a IR pain med some day he would aprove it. He did not say what meds would be IR, I would like to stay with the methadone but dont know if 80 a day is high. Any input would be nice from others before I see the PM in a couple of weeks.
Meds, 20 mg of methadone 4 times a day, Lyrica 100mg 3 times a day, Some 350 once a day and other meds for my Thyroid cancer.
Cervical fusion 4-6,Lumbar DDD 4-5, Left wrist fusion, Thyroid cancer,and Type 2 diabetes with Insulin injections.
