I was switched from 30 - 40 mgs of hydrocodone a day (have been on about the same dose for 3 years) to 30 mgs ms-contin (15 mgs X 2 daily) with hydrocodone for breakthough pain. The switch was 2 days ago and I have had nausea and a terrible headache ever since. It does nothing for my pain. Anybody got any ideas? How long do you have to be on this stuff for it to do any good? Plus, it seems to cause insomnia at night!
I think I'm going back to my old "blend" and just deal with the highs and lows. At least I can feel somewhat normal. BCBS won't let me go to a "name brand" until I try one of these generics for at least 180 days!
