... 10/325 mg. hydrocodone 4 pills per day if needed for uncontrolled pain, but only take 1 or 2 a day if I go shopping or do extra physical activity. The hospital that owns the doctors group I go to has ordered them that if their patient takes 2 or more pain medicines they have to see the pain specialist which costs $45 every 28 days and he makes you sign a contract that's degrading and makes you feel like you're doing something unlawful. You can't take any over the counter medicines for anything nor can you change pharmacies without telling him first.
I really want off the patches if at all possible even though they really control my pain. Thanks for any ideas and suggestions.
