Have you told your pain doctor about the fact that your current pain meds no longer work for you. Based on your current meds, there are still several options on changing to a different drug or increasing your dosage so the meds are more effective. If you are going down the path of taking strong pain killers, you should make sure you are getting adequate pain relief. There is no point of taking these strong drugs and facing all the issues that come with taking those types of drugs, especially if the pain is still there and the drugs do not really work for you. Either the pain meds work well for you and you are seeing the benefits from taking them or do not take them at all, as you will be still facing all the risks and side effects that come with long term opiod use.
