Today I had a wonderful appointment with my pm doc today. In 2009 I first started with these doctors,the doctors had before these were awful. They made me change from methadone to ms contin 60mg 4xday. They never gave me a reason for changing my meds except to say they did not prescribe methadone. So I been plotting along not getting the relief I so badly needed. Prior to them taking me off of methadone I had been taking methadone for years with no problems.
Today I asked my doctor if she would prescribe methadone 10mg 3x day. She gladly did it and advised me that it was much stronger tha morphine and to be careful. She also gave oxycodone for bt pain. I finally faceel "normal" again. I cut back on the bt meds as I dont need them like I did when I was on morphine. I wish I had said something back in 2009, but by then I was afraid of asking for anything. It took me a while to realize that these doctors really cared how I feel.
I could not be happier.
