To MethaContin85:

Our streets are flooded with prescription pain killers and narcotics. It's easier to get illicit drugs than it is to find a deal at Walmart... lol but I just want to say @MethaContin85 you are NOT a recovering opiate addict.. All you did was switch dealers to a licensed and insured dealer.. They draw more profit than street dealers but if one of their customers overdoses then they are protected.. Methadone was the first physical addiction I ever had and that was from recreational use... The effects were just as good as Oxy but methadone lasts all day... You are not in recovery. You still feed your addiction daily. They have just led you to believe you are in "treatment/recovery"...

Hi
I am an opiate user, I have RX's from my dr, and have struggled with chronic constipation because of it. My friend recently died because he had chronic constipation which led to a tear in his intestines, he never went to the dr though which probably would have saved his life. I've tried everything and nothing worked. Finally my dr put me on Amitiza, it really saved me. It caused me no cramps or side effects personally. I did have to jump through hoops for the insurance to cover it, and then it's still pricey (depending on your insurance), but it's totally worth it. Hope this helps. I know how terrible it is to deal with pain your entire life, hugs.

How does this match up against 30mg of oxycodone?

To Meh125,

Yea the something that needs to be done is called "parenting". If it had been done there wouldnt be an issue. There are people in real pain and adults that can choose what life they want. Its not up to people to parent your children or suffer because of them.

If I were not on the fentanyl patch I would suffer everyday of my life with chronic nerve pain in my legs and feet and would rather be dead but because of the patch I have a life and can actually be comfortable and even work and I have tried it all so I disagree.

Prince died from fentanyl OD. The drug is not meant for chronic pain. Pharmaceutial companies are making a killing through the legal addiction of people to opioids. Ask for alternatives

Dear chronic pain opioid patients. New research has proven that use of opioids may increase the pain rather than numb it, your bodies addictive response for more. And that chronic pain associated with nerve damage will last longer than without, additionally the patient will also be more sensitive the pain. (Experiments in mice.) I recently tossed (drugs) everything (slowly) after loosing significant amount of memory and bloods came back with liver damage due to the amount of time on fentanyl, valium, amitriptyline, nsaids and alcohol. I want my life back. I go to an integrated pain management team, learn about living with chronic pain. It has been hard, the pain doesn't stop but i am in less pain now without meds and alcohol than before when i was smashed off my face, i could barely stand or walk. I reckon as the s*** (free radicals) is removed from my system my pain is decreasing. Chronic pain can be a psychological monster and with the bodies normal addictive response to opioids it will continue to feed your body with more referred pain to increase the dose, makes you more sensitive to your pain and proven to prolong nerve pain. Dangerous drugs in the hands of depressed chronic pain sufferers is not a good idea. You will die of organ failure before you die from pain.

I also use the patch and I am shocked at the fact some people just want to feel high. I have chronic pain and it sucks that people misuse and don't understand how this affects the people that really need it.... Sorry your life sucks but try to feel high on life... Just sayin.

Not legally, it will say on the package not to eat, or any other way, the patch. I watched a TV show, "Death by Fentanyl" and it showed how ppl misuse it and it is also used to cut with illicit drugs to get people more addicted!! Stick with the correct way and you will be ok.

Some cool are really gullible if they think they can die from just touching a patch it's so stupid but the thing is with patches you never know how strong the piece of patch is u cut off a full patch and people don't think there high off it when they're actually ripped off there tree and choose to do another piece which causes a lot of O.D.'s and then you get the pop who use patches after they have already done other narcotics and the ones who use it for there first time and have no clue it's gonna be there last high

So could the person who wrote this post. You take that risk with the internet. As a matter of fact, your post seems the more likely candidate to have been typed by a child. Spell check comes with every single computer and phone. It's a shame that you did have a grain of good advice, I generally avoid the opinion of anyone who abuses the English language in such a way. How do you expect people to take your opinion as educated when you can't spell, use the right words or show a hint of actual knowledge about anything? Nice to know your opinion on drug addicts but this is not the place or post for that.

Just cause a person like to abuse a drug SOMETIMES doesn't mean your a druggy. Dont sit there and judge people when your on the patch or a narcotic yourself. It controls you too duh if you didn't have whatever narcotic you use ummm you'd have withdrawls .. I'm so sick of people who lie through their teeth acting so perfect and here they call people out on things they do and done.. its easy. If u don't like what the abusers say scroll on

Hi Corinne, I too had spinal surgery. I have rods and screws in my back. Most of my pain, I believe, stems from the first fusion surgery that failed, (i**** doctor) and needed to be redone. This was in 2001. In 2001, I was started on Vicodin, that didn't help, progressed slowly up to 100 fentanyl patches plus Xanax as needed. I was taken off the patches 4 years ago. I am now on 20 to 30 mg of methadone plus 2mg of Xanax and am crying from constant, stabbing, burning, pain. I was a very successful equestrian previous to surgery. The constant low-back concussion from my chosen sport is what caused me to have surgery. I have tried marijuana in every form made. I keep hoping that marijuana will help, if only a bit, with the pain, but it does not work for those of us that need a drug such as fentanyl for pain relief.

I have deeply questioned users of marijuana for pain to find out 1. The level of pain and what you were using prior to MJ. 2. What does MJ do for you 3. What form do you use. 4. Were you able to eliminate any medication 5. Level of comfort after using MJ. 6. Level of what you are able to do while using MJ Can you now work? Rest well? Etc. I am pro MJ for anyone that gets any sort of relief. I wish, and still hope, that I can come up with some combination of MJ plus other herbs to help.

New topic: all of us on opiates get severe constipation. This is what terrifies me. What we get is peristaltic constipation. Opiates affect our nerve system that creates the peristalsis needed to automatically push the food from our stomach to our G.I. tract then, we need to get it out. I know of people who,have been on opiates for 10 years that now have a colostomy from peristaltic constipation. If anyone out there has had any doctor explain, in detail, to you about this, please start a new thread. I had to do my own anatomy research and just confirmed this with a doctor. I also have not met anyone that understands this ramification of using opiates. Unless geneticists can build a new waste system for us, we are f***ed, screwed, rather be dead, like I feel now...... How much more news can we take? And the damn media is solely focused on the abuse of prescription drugs. To anyone else out there: did you know that a very important current drug czar owns the largest chain of inpatient detox in the United States of America? They do not all use the same name, but nonetheless, owned by the same. Just letting you know.

This is the ONLY reason why we care about addicts overdosing and dying. There are many people that have chronic pain. Pain that is not temporary, such as a sprained ankle, or a broken leg that healed. We have damage to our bodies that will not go away. We hate taking drugs such as fentanyl, Vicodin, Percocet, etc. The reason pain management patients are being forced into caring about i*****s that use opiates recreationally is they are increasingly making it more and more difficult for those of us that use our medication, under doctors care, to get them prescribed when needed. No one in chronic pain would want anyone else to suffer as we do. Yet, people that use opiates just to feel high don't care about us. As pain management patients, we are required to have U/A's, pill counts, and increased scrutinization. They don't give a rat's ass about us, yet WE are forced to care about them. As if our lives are not hard enough as it is. I never even knew what Vicodin was before my journey through pain began from failed fusion surgery of my L4/L5. Like I said, we are forced to care about people that use opiates for a high.
