... claimed 24 hr period?
Welcome to you,
This is an amazing place to connect with people in the same or similar situation you may be in. There aren't many places you can go and find such knowledgeable people when it comes to pain! Anyway, I tried Exalgo ER for a month and it did nothing for me. I've had Chronic Pain for over 30 years and have tried just about everything. These new medications seem to come with 10 pages of warnings and side effects, but don't work anywhere near what the older, proven meds do. Good luck to you, but remember it's your body and if you hurt continue to ask for something that works, not something the doctor just hands you cuz it's new!
I had a very similar experience with exalgo had to raise dose 3x before I noticed any difference. Then after about a yr in exalgo 12mg 2x a day noticed it was lasting less n less time... (never 24hrs for me either) but I've always been nervous to keep climbing the ladder since recovery isn't in near sight.. i suggest you explain to your doctor exactly what you said here. Each drug works differently for everyone. I recently switched to opana er which is calculated to be much stronger than exalgo... I tend to agree bc opana er has seemed to make a huge different & my next step up the dreaded drug ladder :/
Good luck! It has given me my life back I was actually able to jump around with my 3yr old brought me tears of joy for sure.. hope this helps
