I feel pretty much like Jag, I would love to be off these pain meds and the baclofen for the muscle spasms, but But I just don't see how I could manage, I would be in the recliner or my adjustable bed 24/7 as that is the only way I get relief from the pain, and even sometimes then, that doesn't cut it! So I have adopted the attitude that these pain meds are just like BP meds or high cholesterol meds, or any of the other meds that you have to continually have to take to keep the treated condition undercontrol! In reality it real is the same thing! You take a med daily or more often to control you high BP or Cholesterol, and you take meds to control your pain, if you don't take them, then your BP or Cholesterol will go right back up to unacceptable limits, and if you don't take your pain meds, then your pain goes right back up there to unacceptable limits! The only difference is that you don't feel the High BP or Cholesterol, but they can kill you! But with the Pain, you feel it right away, but it probably won't kill you but just make you wish you were dead. I take that back, because for some people it just might kill them! Anyway that attitude and way of thinking works for me! I just look at taking pain meds, like taking any other type of med to control an undesirable condition!
