I have been seeing pain management specialists for 14 years. I have had 4 neck surgeries and have severe nerve damage. I have been on 30 mg Oxycotin 2x daily and short acring 30 milligrams of oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Which I need all the time. Because Oxycitin can no longer be chopped up it is safe. But now becuse The short acting oxycodone is the new "party drug" the DEA is making my pain management office reduce their patients oxycodone. I was wondering if this is happening ro anyone else out there and if your offices are offering anything else to replace it because I cannot find anything tnew that helps against severe nerve pain. Why the DEA is involved in pain treatment is beyond me, but even pharmacies like CVS is saying the DEA is only allowing them to order only so many narcotics anymore. Is it just Maryland this is happening to or is a y other state going through similar issues? D
