Hello to all my fellow CPer's...I hope your day is going well. Mine is going better thanks to my new PM Dr. I had told my old PM that my Lortab 10's had lost it's effectiveness, that was 6 months ago!!! So, today at my regular visit I saw a new Dr. that had only been there for 6 weeks. He has been a Dr. that specializes in pain for over 20 years in the Nashville area and he was the only Dr. that did "procedures" on patients' backs.
So, I saw him today because my Doc was gone. He came in and actually "listened" when I told him about the Lortabs not working anymore and that I was taking more and running out too soon. Insterad of getting mad he asked me about other meds and finally wrote me for Roxicodone 15mg. He said they didn't have Tylenol in them and they should work better.
So???? Does anybody take these? and what do u think about them?
spinal stenosis,degenerative disc disease,bilateral neuropothy.
lamenectomy L3,L4..spinal fusion L4-S1
skeyeThanks for the info. I also have a very HIGH Tolerance for pain medications and in jut the first day have found the same as with you. It lasted a little more then 3.5 hours the first time I took it, and about 3 the next time. The Dr. said that these were much better then the Lortab 10's.
I have seen that a great many people here take more than 2 opiates for their pain...I take methadone total of 120mg./day along with the roxicodone 15mg. 4Xdaily for BT pain. I really thought that when I was taking the Lortab 10 3Xdaily that I was taking alot of pain meds. Oh well, all I want is to feel "NORMAL" AT LEAST SOME OF THE TIME...is that even possible?
