I have severe chronic pain. I have been seeing a pain management dr. for 12 years. I have been on the duregesic patch 100 mc for 4 years. The patch works great and has given great results. The past year it is not working that much. I asked my dr could he up my dosage maybe to 125mc of duregesic patch. He told me no that the dea does not allow. I know this is wrong and now have been scared to complain anymore about my chronic pain levels, they at an 8 now of scale 1-10. What can I do, he drug test everyone after your visit so he knows i am not a drug seeker. I am just stuck and the pain levels creep up every month.
