... effectiveness has suddenly stopped. it is as if i am not even taking the pill. is there such a thing as developing a immunity to a specific narcotic?
absolutely, this is called tolerance and it happens to everyone who has to take opiates chronically. If you are definitely going to have to take opiates for the rest of your life then I would suggest that you try and get on methadone. Methadone is extremely difficult to get tolerant to and it is a very potent pain killer... Good luck... Dave
