... for pain but isn't anymore. I'm in college and have hard time concentrating. my eye get tired easily and can't sit in one place for too long because of cramps. I ve tried tramadol, fentenyl patch, nortriptylin, cymbalta, and the whole line of o.t.c.s and none really help like percs but she wont give them to me for long period of time,or anymore since we've tried that already. what's next ??? methadone?? I don't know what to do. I don't want to keep on trying the suboxone for fear of becoming addicted and going through hell to get off it. what r my options? what should I ask her for next?
Hi lainey64 - You don't mention exactly what type of pain you have and/or how long you've had it. To be taking those kinds of pain meds, at your age, is pretty heavy duty! I just want you to be sure that you really need medication that strong, because almost everything you mentioned is a real BEAR to get off of, including Suboxone after too long. I know because I'm a recovered addict, and was taking Percocet, among other pain meds., in college. I went through a long recovery and 30 years later, realize I was taking them more because I didn't really want the inconvenience of any type of pain, whether it be muscle, nerve or headache. And, some was definitely bad. But, I see now that I had a low tolerance for pain, and rather than letting whatever pain I had take the time needed to heal, I just wanted it gone. So, please know I'm not being judgemental at all. Just wish I had concentrated more on getting rid of the source of the pain rather than trying to mask or tolerate it.
I would honestly try some other pain reduction methods on top of whatever meds. you take, so that you can reduce the strength/addictive qualities of the meds. you must take, because anything that's going to work well, is most likely going to be addictive! Just a suggestion. Good luck! J.
