I have been taking 2,60mg OC for a year now, along with percocet for breakthrough pain. I got my life back and was able to do more activities. example: clean house better, keep laudry up- the basic everyday things. The past 2 months, I have not been able to do these things without my pain level increasing to the point of having to stop or limit my duties. Does anyone know why? Do I need to ask Doc to increase or change?? I do not know what to do. Help me Please!!!

You may have a new injury or condition, or your brain and body may need a longer acting medication. If you do NOT have a pain management doctor, you may need to switch to one. If you are already being treated by a pain management doctor, discuss these issues with him/her and see a) if there is an additional medical problem and b) if you need a medication change to something longer lasting.
