... the dose. 10 mg 3 x a day. I was weined off over a 6 wk period by my pm doctor. I am done now but have so much back pain I can't work sleep it is so terrible. I won't go on them but how long b4 the pain stops from receptors.?
After 15 years its hard to say. I was on tramadol and 30mg oxy x 3 a day for seven years, I went thru full wirhdrawal that was hell, neurontin ended up saving my life. You may mention it. It is specifically for nerve damage and worked wonders for me. Non narcotic too. If u had nerve damage prior, you prolly always will have pain. Im sure its amplified right now from covering it up for 15 years with narcotics. I wish u the best dear, and wish i had a time frame for u.
So sorry to hear of your pain but I am quite sure there is no date for pain to stop if there is damage. You may want to ask doctor since I am assuming you wanted off the narcotic meds if there a good cream for your pain to use like lidocaine or something or patches. . Pray you can find comfort.
I use lidocaine ointment for some of my pain. I slather this on liberally and it does help with the pain. I prefer the ointment over the patches. I tend to sweat and the patches don't stay on. Instead of 12 hours on and 12 hours off I can use the ointment up to 4 times a day. The main reason is the ointment is generic and costs me a $10 Co-pay while the patches cost me a $60 Co-pay.
