Can you tell me what dosage you were given? Mine was only 15mg the lowest they have. I was hoping they would try oxycotin on me, the ER type to give me more of a constant relief. I hate the ups and down of each med wearing off in about
3 to 4hrs. I was given Morphine when I had my heart attack in 2002 and it did little for me at the time, so I should have known better when they gave it to me this time. It makes me sleepy, but the pain is still there. One thing that I do like about
it is that it seems like Im not as foggy with it as I am with the percocet. I read the same responce somewhere else about
having a clearer mind while on it. I just called my PM and they said they would leave the Doc a note, so Im guessing it will be a long waiting game again. This group used to do alot of PM work, but has since droped doing it because they are so busy doing Epidurals now. They took me on as a special case at the request of my PCD, of which Im greatful for. My PCD just moved his office and Im going to let him get settled in before I make an appt for more Epidurals, of which he said he would refer me for. I have as yet to actually meet this new PM Doc and he agreed to write the first two script
s without seeing me, based on the information my PCD office sent them. They said they would require a visit after the second refill was written. So right now my PCD is writting the script
for the Percocet and the PM is writing the script
for the MSIR. I will be glad when the PM takes over my pain management completly. I will however, keep my PCD informed as to what is going on, as he has been an excellant Doc to deal with, and we have been with him for 15yrs or so. He is to the place to where he is uncormfortable giving beyond the Percocet script
, so that is why he has refered me to this PM Doc. The state of Kansas is very strict on Pain Meds right now, and Docs are tucking their tail at the expence of their patients. I guess this is becoming a real problem across the whole country too!
