... prescribing me 150 oxycodone 30 mg @ 5 a day and neurontin 800. Well i moved and i am now seeing a pain management doctor and he wants to try sumthing else. My 1st visit with him was last Tues and he is trying oxycodone 10 mg @ 4 times aday and oxycotin 40 mg @ 2 times a day. Been on this regime 8 days now and its not working out. Before i was feeling no pain, living a normal life doing normak activities. But not i still fill pain, and having to give my legs rest (sitting down) often. I see him on Friday, i was going to suggest doing 120 oxycodone 30 mg @ 4 a day and 60 oxycotin 80 mg @ 2 day. Wud this be a good regim (spelled wrong sorry) that maybe to be like it used to?
What he is doing is the way chronic pain should be treated. You need the long acting drug plus something for breakthru pain. When you see him again, he will increase the extended release drug . Do not suggest anything. That puts up the red flag of drug seeker. Tell him what you can't do that you did before the change.
