Not sure if Medicare covers anything stronger. I wearing my TENS unit almost from the time I wake up till I go back to bed. Lidoderm patch as well. I have a degerative dic disorder, ostioarthritus, bersitist etc. Vicki
Im sorry to tell you this, however, I was an oxycodone user (percocet, roxicodone, oxycontin) for 3+ years. I just had to goto rehab to detox from them & stayed 14 days & now I'm now in IOP (intensive outpatient). I have been on nothing for 12 days now. This is the important part of my answer, I have like 7 bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, bone spurs, disc tears, narrowing vertebrae, bone growth over vertebrae, etc. The pain pills deplete your endorphins that help you to have pain tolerance. Also, the pills will make you mentally make you hurt WORSE, to make you take MORE PILLS!!! I can HONESTLY say that I hurt WAY MORE WHEN I WAS ON THE PILLS!!! I still hurt now but so much less .. The best thing I could do was GET OFF THE PILLS!!! Good luck to you!!
