I have been on subs for over a yr now. a couple of days ago i broke my right hand now that im not high all the time i can feel the pain. the doctor gave me ibus but they really arent helping. is there anything else i can take to help??
Dear TearBear, welcome to the site. Please call your subs dr, he/she will likely up your dose of subs, or have a plan for this type of occasion. As you know, subs blocks opiates, so, you would have to be off subs for a few days to get opiate based pain meds to work, and then go back thru withdrawal in order to restart subs. Normally, the subs dr will up your dose, but you have to call him/her so tht they will write you mo subs if you run out due to taking more. It depends on the dr, but usually, this is what they do. The pain from a broken bone does start getting better after a week or so, i am so sorry you are having to hurt like this. Some drs have plans for patients who break bones or need surgery while on subs, call and ask yours. Patti

Why would my doctor recommend taking nortriptyline for severe joint pain in my hands when I'm on Pr?
