I think if I get Opana it would be the ER...since I'm thinking about
changing from Methadone....but, I might just try the Opana IR and stop taking the Oxycodone 30 mg. That might be wha they want to do first.... Heck, I don't know....I'm just going to ask about
trying something else besides the Methadone...I've been taking it for over 4 years and I think I need to try something else...if only to take a break from the Methadone... My Doc has never talked about
changing for that reason, but I have read that many Dr.'s like to switch it up so the patients don't get a high tolerance... and I think I've already gotten to that point with it.
As far as the Oxycodone goes....well, it does help. But not that well.. she may want to keep it the way it is,,,
I have been a spectator for so long..Now it's time to participate.......
