I have been switched from pain med to pain med so often lately that my head is spinning.
I just started diluid 2mg last night and just like the other meds it works for about an hour and quits. I had just started oxycodone 2 weeks ago and I really did like it but it didn't last very long. I was taking 10 mg 3 times a day. Prior to that I was taking hydrocodone 10/325's 4 times a day.
I told my pm that I thought that if they just upped the dosage on the oxycodone a bit, especially in the morning, that I could get a hold of the pain before it got out of control but instead he puts me on this diluid (sp) 2 mg up to 5 times a day. Its making me loopy and barely touching the pain. Oh why doesn't he take what I say in to account? I feel like he is giving me just enough to chase my pain all day.
Does everyone else have a hard time finding something that works for them?? This is getting to be tiresome and I have been missing work because of the pain as well.
