Hi all i am a 32 year old male, with chronic pain l4-l5 l5-s1 ddd, few other things. Here we go, I was taking 100mg er mscontin x3 daily and was referred to another pain managment place here locally. So, she changed me to 75mcg patch q 72 hours. I was also given 15mg ir morphine for inbetweens. I started monday and @ hour 60 i was hurting so bad, but didnt wanna call whining when it was not even day 3. So here it is saturday morning and believe me, i thought it was in my head but it isn't these things dont work for 72 hours.
Not only is the 75's not working but they arent doing what they are supposed to do.
I guess in the morning i'll call the number that was given to me, but, I am scared. This is the reason I have never liked switching meds, what works for some doesnt work for others. I am this close to going to the ER, but weirdly, my heart isnt beating like crazy nor is my bp off the charts. Most of the time when i go to ER my bp is around 180/100 or so.
