My PM has a new rule - only one controlled substance can be written per person. As of now, I take Oxycontin 20 MG x 3 times a day. I asked about breakthrough pain and was told the doctor will no longer write for breakthrough pain. As I type this, my back smarts pretty good and have nothing to take.
I was told that if they need to, next month they will bump me up to Opana ER. I'd rather stay with the Oxycontin with something for breakthrough. I hate the idea of being on something stronger when something less strong usually works. It's just on days where I've over done it, I tend to hurt more.
Anyone else out there have this type of issue? I think all the bad press about narcotics is starting to scare him about writing the prescriptions. His new motto is "Less is Better". Sorry, but as someone who hurt's like crap, the right amount is the amount that provides relief!
