Like what I should ask the doc for
slim69210; I don't quite agree with the Pharmacist you talked to. Twice I have had my ER medications changed to the IR which normally last 3-4 hours and it was done with the total amount of milligrams of the medication and has worked just fine. Now keep in mind you don't want to take extra but make sure you take it prior to the severe pain breakthrough. But also the doctor has to make the real choice and they have a cross reference to help them from drug to drug and milligram to milligram. Because of all the new government and Dea regulations. So the best you can do is when it is time let your doctor know that your Insurance has changed what they well pay. And ask the doctor what would be the best way to keep you out of pain. It should work out for you But you're really wasting your time it's going to be up to your doctor. Best of luck to you.
