I suffer from severe daily headaches and am under a pain management Dr's care, he has me on at 1st percocet,10/750 then roxycodone. I want to get off, my concern is that i am taking approx 6 pills a day of the roxy and i cant tell what is the true headache or what is the rebound headache from the meds. Even with taking them i still have a headache on a daily basis w/ the meds is a 5-6 w/out it a ten plus. i need help to ween myself off so i can deal with my true pain. you are talking to a 48 yr old woman who never did drugs in her life i didn't get thus age to get hook on legal drugs. I NEED HELP.
First of all if the medication is your concern your just going to have to tell your doctor that you want to handle the pain on your own. There are medications out there that are non-narcotic the problem with doctors is i dont think they are use to someone saying i want to deal with my pain cause pain is something that is hard to deal with. If you want there is also therapy and other means to help your pain. You are right you didnt come this far in life to be addicted to pain medication and you didnt come this far to die of liver disease. I wish you the best of luck and i hope only the best for you ms.suffering.
