Good Morning CP friends...Happy Monday..
Can anyone give me more info on the patches...do you like them, what had you been on before you went with the patches.
Right now my doctor is giving me oxy. I started out with 10 mg. It was the best thing since sliced bread. I felt giddy in that I had my "old" life back. I felt really good, my pain seemed to be all gone!!!
But then...slowly it all started coming back. We increased to 15 mg. It was ok, but then very shortly, it seemed to be not enough. Just went back to my rhuemy last week, she increased me to 20. She said she would increase it 2 more times then off to a PM. Its been 5 days, the 20 isn't doing a whole lot. She told me to call her and bring back the 2 future scripts for oxy and she would change it if I noticed it wasnt' doing so good. I will give it to the end of this week, and then call her. So she will bump it up to what ever level the next one is. I have a feeling I will also be asking her about the PM. Is the next one 25 or 30..anyone know?
Anyway...sorry to ramble, but I was wondering if this is something that I may end up trying down the road.
