Yes it is ok to add the hydrocodone 10 mg however you should consider speaking with your prescribing physician to have your current pain level re-evaluated and your medication effectiveness also re-evaluated. If you have chronic intractable pain and are not getting good pain control from your current medications - then you need to have a discussion with your physician to discuss some alternatives - maybe you need different medications or an increase in the fentanyl patch - they come in many strengths up to 100 ugh strength and the doctor can prescribe you to change your patch every 3 days or every 2 days or every day and are you wearing a medic alert bracelet?
When you are taking narcotic medication on a regular basis you should have all of your medical information stored by Medic Alert and wear that bracelet or necklace with all of your medical information and always carry a list of all of your medications and prescribing physicians in your wallet with a complete medical history - if you are ever disabled or unconscious, this information can save your life. God forbid you are ever in an auto accident and you arrive at the hospital unresponsive - at least your medical alert ID will provide the emergency room physicians with access to your entire medical file and your physician contacts and family contacts would also be provided. I hope you find this information helpful - Good Luck to you. Angela
