Jag is right you need to talk with your Doctor, May I ask if your having so much pain why are you "getting off pain meds"???? Anyway you should not be "doubling up" or other wise taking your meds in an unprescribed way! When you accept a prescript
ion from your Doctor you are in a sense agreeing to taking the meds as the Doctor prescribes a form of contract if you will! Changing the way you take them, is breaking that contract, and can only get you into trouble with your Doctor in the end, Most Doctors usually do not like or tolerated patients that do that!
So if your pain meds are not adequately controlling your pain then you definitely need to be seeing your Doctor about it! Before doing the self medicating thing! Maybe you should be seeing a Pain Clinic and Pain Management Specialist, if you are not doing that already. I do wish you well!
Good Luck to You
