I have been on them for ten years. Would it hurt to ask to be up to the 2 mg. They also started me on endocet 5mg. They really do help with my pain but I think i need a higher dosage. i think I'm taking to much tylenol. I have been on these for eight months now.
As with most medications that are highly sought after for abuse, you need to keep a well documented diary as to your daily struggles, feelings, when the meds begin to wear off, etc. It will show you doc the seriousness of your condition and your determination to deal with it in other ways then upping your meds.. Simply going in and asking for an increase is often met with apprehension on the part of the doctor. The more you can show him how pro active you are in your own care, the more willing he will be to help you out. I would also ask your doc to refer you to a group counseling forum to help deal with chronic pain, depression, and anxiety. There is an underlying cause for being on these meds for so long. You need to start digging in to the reasons why, and come up with some solutions. Meds only suppress the underlying cause, please try to find the best solution for you. If you ever need to talk, I am here for you.
