My meds were doing ok with pain management until the weather changed. I have some days where it works but any kind of front (which there have been alot) moves through and I am taking everything prescribed plus tylenol and my pain levels are too high.
White Beard, I think you are onto something with the oxycontin not lasting long enough cause I take it around 8am & 8pm but by 3 in the afternoon the pain gets really bad and even the oxycodone doesn't cut it enough.
I use Medco for my prescription meds so I will check their website to see about any generic ER meds available.
The Avinza I was using was to be taken 1 daily. It wasn't lasting long enough so doc had me try 2xday and that was too much. Got very nauseated & light headed. Couldn't do anything but lay down and wait for it to get out of my system.
