Many docs used to do this, but most have found that this really doesn't do a whole lot. Most found that tolerance was right back to where it was within a short period of time. That being said, Jim we are all different and things work differently for everyone. If this works for you and your doc is OK with it then that is great and I am glad you found something that works for you!
Thanks for not beating me up on this post. It seems like every time I post I get flamed.But yes, I had to do something because my doctor I believe has a phobia of opioids. I know I am under medicated. But on the other hand the price of the medication is so expensive that I can't afford it. Yes, I'm one of those people without insurance. And the nice people at Sprint decided they didn't need my service anymore.Anyway, my pain is under control. It's just like when I was first prescribed.
40 mg OxyContin 2 times daily-three Percocet daily as needed for breakthrough pain.
In closing, Chutz I appreciate you not beating me up. I'll watch what I post from now on
