I have been in pain from fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel, bursitis, endometriosis, and hip/back for over 15 years. I have been to doctors and pain clinics. I have been on tramadol and cymbalta for years and tried vicodin for about a month but didn't like it cause had to take it every 3-4 hours. In addition I have had numerous injections - steroids and other things - and physical therapy. Well, a friend gets this medication, dolophine, for maintenance and has given me 10mg a few times when my pain was severe. It absolutely helped me for at least 12 hours to feel completely functional and normal and pain free. I asked my primary doctor about it and he said I would have to go to pain clinic for it. I went to pain clinic but didn't ask for this specific drug cause people tell me you should never ask a doctor for a narcotic by name or they will think you are a user. I have never been addicted to any drugs. It seems crazy. I am a 50 year old mother and on disability and could probably have a normal functional life with just 10 mg of this stuff once a day.

come straight out and tell the pain management that thats the only thing that works for you. if asked how you got it, say that you was in such severe pain and you was given one for pain when you were staying over at a friends or familys for the weekend. that might help. get better
