Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Hi, just wondering if anyone here takes methodone and how well it works? How long have you been on it and what dosage? What were you on before and what made you decide to go to methodone? Please tell me all you feel, good and bad about it...and for those who have considered it, why didnt you start taking it? For everyone else, just chime in your opinions! Please! I am having horrible, horrible pain...I've tried fentanyle patches and they worked pretty well but my hubby will not let me use those again b/c he is afraid of malfunction/leakage and overdose.
Right now I'm on 60mg oxycontin X 3 day and 20mg IR oxycodone X 4 day ( or 1.5 to 2 pills if needed0. First, I'm still in so much pain, it's off the charts...sitting about an 7/8 on the pain scale while reclining and goes to 10 or more with activity and while sleeping. I'm so scared that my options are running out. I know some take oxy 4 times a day instead of 3. My doc has mentioned a dilaudid pain pump, but he also mentioned methodone.
So, that is where my question comes from...I've researced it a bit and found that it does great with pain contol for severe pain patients when everything else has been tried. But, there is bad stigma accosiated to it b/c it's used to help break herion addictions. I've also seen where it's AWFUL...like the most awful drug ever to come off of.
Also, last question, what is the largest IR immediate release med you've heard of? I can take two of my 20mgs and feel like I took candy. It's so darn frustrating!!
