Just curious if anyone has had problems with tolerance to the opiate pain meds after long-term pain management. How does your PCP or PM doctor handle this issue? I was prescribed MS Contin 15mg x 3 a day with Oxycodone 15mg for breakthrough for almost 3 years by neurologist. I decided to go off all meds with the help of Burtrans 10mcg. Have not taken any opiates for the last year. Chronic pain (cervical disk disease, cervical radiculopathy, and avascular neucrosis of both hips) is now getting too uncontrolled and may have to go back to opiate intervention. I am just afraid of the tolerance issue again.
