cbear, Being overmedicated is not an uncommon thing...alot of patients, especially CP patients are overmedicated. Most of the time we just want to be out of pain and we don't care what we have to do...after a while we don't realize what we're doing to ourselves. Of course, some of us have no choice and have to take a multitude of meds. I am so glad that this way is the right way for you... You're lucky to have such a caring Dr. on your side that saw what was happening and took the correct steps to help you.
I wish more Dr.'s were like that.
