I am just now taking this medication, but feel like I am having to take more hydrocodone 10's. I got off the fentanyl patches for the same reason. I am scared I may take too many and overdose......? Does anyone suggest anything? Also, I wake up in the middle of the middle of the night in severe pain.

What dosage and frequency of taking them has your doctor recommended?

You should be following that and, if it isn't handling your pain, then you should contact them for assistance.

You can learn more Exalgo details here.

I know pain is miserable, but a fatal overdose would be even worse.

You have to be really careful with the Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen, since you can't exceed 4,000mgs of the Acetaminophen in a day, going over that creates the danger of toxicity overdose from it.

What other medications have you tried? Are these the only ones, or have there been more?

You really need to talk to your doctor about how and when to take your meds--Exalgo is time release so you should only be taking it once a day. I started taking Exalgo a few monthes ago when the MS Contin and Opana stopped working, and am at the max 16mg dose. I have severe leg pain that no doctor has been able to determine the cause and had a spinal cord pain stimulator implanted last year. If you are not getting help from a reputable pain clinic, that should be your first step. The staff are trained in pain management and are much more knowledgeable than primary care doctors. Hope this helps.
