... management. He only takes it occassionally, but there is a clear change in him mentally. If he stops it altogether and/ or changes pain medication, how long will it take for this to clear up? This is ruining our marriage
Dear mrs b,
If he only takes it occasionally then he should be able to change to a different medication. Please don't take this the wrong way, but it sounds like you have tried different pain meds. I have been thru this with my husband. He would act so bizarre that it actually scared me and my daughter. He was taking morphine, but not like the dr. prescribed. I found out he was actually stealing my pain meds. He wouldn't remember and wouldn't believe us, when we would tell him. I finally video taped him. He is now on suboxone, and his pain is doing alright. Anyway. dont let his behavior to go on as long as I did. For his own good, call his Dr. right away! Do you have the same PM doc? Just tell the nurse, or the doc. if you can get him/her, not the receptionist (things get lost in translation) and make sure you give them details. If your afraid, let them know. they can work around you calling some-how. Sometimes oxy or hydro codone can make some people very anger & aggressive. I will add you as a fan and you do the same, then we can privately communicate. Sorry for the long answer, but I just had a 2 week family vacation ruined by my husbands actions... Hope this helps, Sweetpea
PS let us know what happens, good luck!
