I know this might sound lame but I would really like some advice with it. I suffer from Fibromyalgia (chronic pain) and have tried just about everything out there to try to alleviate it. It's been 11 years, but for the past 3 years I have settled on just 2 5mg/325 percocets a day. I know that's not a lot, compared with what some people take, but it takes off the edge and that's all I can do if I don't want to get addicted to much worse (not that they'd prescribe more). I know I'm addicted though - even at that low dose.
I've moved now and have started with a new doctor. He said last time I saw him, he doesn't think 'percs' are the best and he'd like to try something new. I've already tried them all and I'm as content as I suppose I'll ever be.
I'm worried that he's going to take me off these and prescribe something else like neurontin/gabapentin (which made me sick). Just wondering if anyone has gone off this low a dose and has had problems with withdrawal and if so, what I could ask my doctor for help with so that I can weather the storm. I know I can't function until I take a percocet in the morning - so I can't imagine it's going to be easy.
Thanks for any advice
