I'd agree to ask for something for breakthrough. Its odd your doctor did not automatically give you something to begin with for BT. Some people even think that methadone stops other pain medication from working. but thats not necessarily true. It works, it helps pain, it just doesnt give you euphoria because that sense is being 'blocked', the receptors. I take 30mg oxycodone also, and Im about to ask to switch to something else, after about a year and a half I just feel its not working as well, obviously, tolerance if Im using 30mg oxycodone, and not one at a time, 2 to 3 at a time. But do ask again, ask them until they give you something, or explain to you some sort of explanation in their thinking.
Alot of people are fearing or scared of methadone, because people associate it for herion withdraw or addicts, but thats just not true at all. Its a great pain medication, matter of fact my pain management doctor has different brochures for any controlled/extended release medication that people might have bad views of, which are from fear mongerers I believe. But anyways he has a brochure for Oxycontin, Methodone, and Im not sure the other, but it might be fentynal I believe. Because they always have the most publicity of course people think their the worse, but its just because people use it and it works that they have a bad wrap. a medication wont get a bad wrap when it doesnt work because no one or not many will use it to SEE or sense any side effects. Dont you somewhat agree?
Nice to talk to you, by the way if you didnt know Im Chris!
