... 15 mgs of oxycodone to 5 mgs. 3 times a day. I take Nucynta 100 mgs ER two times a day. My pain never lessens below an 8 or a 7. Is there a solution for me? I take LORAZEPAM 3 times a day as needed. My Dr. tells me he cannot increase my meds because of my age and I am on oxygen. ... 1 1/2 Liters. Also, I am one of those patients that medicine works opposite on me. Very hard to find a pain medicine that works. Can you help? Thank you.
I expect that he is reducing your narcotic pain med for exactly the reasons he have you. If you already are having problems with your breathing, enough to require oxygen, he's reducing your narcotics since they're known to suppress your breathing. I would discuss your pain levels with your Dr. He may be able to prescribe a non-narcotic pain med for you.
