my msir 30mg and fentanyl 100mcg. patch i have been on same dosage for about 1-1/2 yrs. lately the msir isnt helping for breakthrough. if i ask pain dr. to increase msir dosage do you think he will, or say i have to lower dose for a while to lower my high tolerance to msir. i dont want to hurt anymore than i am allready, but sometimes i have to take two msir 30mg to make pain bearable, if i walk for short while.maybe there is a another drug to replace msir
I am 49 and have chronic back pain using msir30mg.&100mcg. fentanyl patch?

i also am on colonipin1mg. twice daily . cymbalta 60mg. 1 daily. neurontin 400mg. 3 at bedtime . and restoril 30mg. 1 at bedtime. still cant sleep but short periods, maybe 2 or 3 hrs at atime then im up again on internet in pain most of time unless i take two 30mg. msir which lasts maybe 2 hrs. then all i can do is lay down. which i am really bedridden for most of evry day, except for short walk to kitchen or bathroom.
there are definatly other meds you can take (pretty sure opana is a stronger but i would have to look at the ingredients and dosage and all) or you can try and stick with the msir and just ask for a dosage upped (if you dont want to be in pain you definatly cant lower your tollerance pretty much at all unfortunatly). also (as bad as it sounds) you can try and add something like valium or klonopin since this can help with pain (this is off lable since this is an anti anxiety med). another thing is im not sure if you would have to lower your pain med dosage inorder to add this since some narcotics multiply the effects of others... i havnt had cronic pain so im sure other people on this forum will be able to give additional input
