I tried cutting back from a 10am/2pm/6pm to 1/2 of 1 in the 6pm .I have fybromyalgia, anxiety/neverousness, carpell tunell, need fusion in c5/6/7 in neck ,torn rotators, mid back pain and can't exercise other than walking.I don't have insurance and my $ is almost gone.
Wantshelp2: I did it after some shoulder surgery, so I could function at work...but it wasn't any fun. It's hard work. First, cut down NOW to 2 x day for about 10 days....then try 1 x day for as long as you can stand it. If you can't take it, then try taking 1 1/2 1 x day for about 10 days....and then cut back to 1 a day for a while. When you're really ready, 1/2 a day for one week. Don't ask a Doc for some substitute---you'd be trading one nightmare for another. Eat good food and stay busy. I know it sounds corny, but it worked for me. (I still hurt, though...) Good luck!
Man, that's a tough one because if you taper-off the oxy, which I (and a lot of other people on here) can explain how to do, your still gonna be stuck with some bad-ass pain to deal with. I'd try methadone clinics, charities that might help with your meds (I'll research this and get back to you ASAP), some pharm manufacturers might help with payment... there's a lot of options, I just need a bit to scope them out. Just remember you're not alone and there are a lot of people on here who care and have a lot of knowledge. Do you have any access to a doctor, the one who wrote the original scrip... Need a little more info on the situation, add me as a friend if you are more comfortable talking privately... Hang In There! Colin M. Zimmermann
