... pain. I am currently seeing a pain specialist, but we are still trying to find a medication that works for me. I have tried ms contin, which I didn't like because it made me too drowsy. Right now, I'm on the fentynal patch, which I really like, but for some reason, they stop working early, which has become extremely frustrating. I want to switch to something else, but the doctor seems pretty persistant that I stay with the fentynal. I don't know what to do. I am so frustrated. I've heard from other chronic pain sufferers that oxycontin works well, but the doctor says that it is too short-acting for me. This doesn't make sense at all to me, since he had me on ms contin. I've found that doctors don't like to prescribe oxycontin because it's very addicting, but I've also heard it works very well. So, I need some advice. Anyone got any suggestions?
