4 back surgeries. Fused from L-3 - S-1 with hardware and fusion in neck with plate. 54 years old. Hydrocodone 7.5/200 3 times a day. Methocarbamol 500mg at night. Is there a transdermial patch or a pain pump that would work better?
Hydrocodone shouldn't be used for chronic pain. There are patches but they are far to strong for what you are used to . Opiate's that are formulated as quick release like anything hydrocodone are to weak for daily long term use. What you need is sustained release opiates like oxycontin or ms contin. Good luck... Dave
