I'm not sure. I haven't voted yet, but I think I'd probably stay as I am. I'm on a combo of narcotic and non-narcotic pain meds. I think the only reason that I'd have cause to change from a narcotic to a comparable non-narcotic would be if I'd encountered a large amount of stigma over being on an opioid medication... the junkie/drug seeker image that some CP sufferers find themselves tarred with. I've never been subjected to that, so I'd have no reason to change...and I like what I know :)
