... already had lumbar fusion surgery. My pain is continuous.but I live alone and have to work. What can I try to ask for that will ease my pain all day without making me sleepy. In the past when I had insurance i the pain clinic did try me on percocet and they did not help.nor have any injections. Im desperate and need prayer to make it each day. My name is lisa. Thank u
I would explain to the doc that the lortab is not lasting and you don't want to be sleepy at work, what does he recommend. You could ask about longer acting pain medicines such as Oxycontin or Avinza. Just explain that they were recommended to you by a friend. There are other non narcotic pain medicines that you could ask about as well such as Lyrica or Cymbalta. I would ask him about the non narcotic options first in fact as they are less likely to make him think you are drug seeking.
