Ask your dr about pain patches, they last all day and have all different kinds of opiate or non opiate... like a percocet pain patch, tramadol, and several others... ask dr about pain patches.. they are time released.. hope this helps
PS~the only reason why I know is because I asked my dr about them, and he said no to me, but explained them all to me... I hope your dr will do it for you... good luck~
