I have been in pain from fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel, bursitis, endometriosis, and hip/back for over 15 years. I have been to doctors and pain clinics. I have been on tramadol and cymbalta for years and tried vicodin for about a month but didn't like it cause had to take it every 3-4 hours. In addition I have had numerous injections - steroids and other things - and physical therapy. Well, a friend gets this medication, dolophine, for maintenance and has given me 10mg a few times when my pain was severe. It absolutely helped me for at least 12 hours to feel completely functional and normal and pain free. I asked my primary doctor about it and he said I would have to go to pain clinic for it. I went to pain clinic but didn't ask for this specific drug cause people tell me you should never ask a doctor for a narcotic by name or they will think you are a user. I have never been addicted to any drugs. It seems crazy. I am a 50 year old mother and on disability and could probably have a normal functional life with just 10 mg of this stuff once a day.
