i have back pain and need neck surgery .the ms cottin is not working anymore i dont want to have the surgery till i absolutly have to . my fusion was a joke in my lowerback im in constant pain . im 39 years old.
I wish I could answer that question. I have not had that. I have taken the rainbow of narcotics . I am currently taking Methadone for chronic pain and it works. It doesn't make me loopy or high but it does work at controlling my pain. I just take to much. I want to get down to 40mgs a day then gradually work on getting back on 10mg a day. Good Luck..Kim
If you are going to be on opiate pain killers for life then I would suggest methadone as the way to go. There is almost no tolerance with methadone meaning you can stay at the same dose and get the same effect for years at a time. I know people who have been at the same dose for 20 years.
Opana is oxymorphone and is stronger than morphine. You run into the same problem with this drug as you do with almost all opiates and that is you get tolerent to them. This is why methadone is so useful for chronic pain suffers... Good luck... Dave
