It is particularly frustrating when this happens with people who have respiratory problems that the pain makes worse. Our government thinks they know what is better for us then drs and they tell drs what they can prescribe and give them a hard time if they prescribe something the government thinks shouldn't be needed. You can try talking to your dr and asking for something stronger for a short time, I'm not going to tell you it will get you anywhere.
All of the above are correct. You may need a muscle relaxer added to the regimine. They usually will potentiate, increase, the effect of pain medication. You can start low w flexer and work your way up. I have found that Zanaflex works best for me and was a huge difference when I was taking instant release pain meds.
