I had surgery in May for disc replacement in C5 and C6 and was taking 10-325mg of Norco for pain, on October 12th I had a disc replaced in L5-S1 and my surgeon put me on 10-325mg of Percocet and Valium 10mg. I have been depressed at home and went to my primary care doctor who prescribed 7.5-500mg of Lortab, I was taking the other meds 2 every 4 hours for pain and have been dropped to 1 Lortab every 4-6 hours, this is not controlling my pain, my doctor feels I have been taking the Percocet for too long, 2 months, he also took me off my Valium 10mg and changed it to Klonopin 1mg, half to 1 pill twice a day, I have been in a lot of pain for a few days now since changing dosages and feel anxious and depressed, is this acceptable or should I go talk to my surgeon again and have my meds changed back?

Hi I know you said you were on valium 10 milligrams and he took you off of that and put you on klonopin 1 milligram. I can tell you for a fact that that 1 you do not have to worry about because klonopin is a stronger benzo diazapine then valuum is any day of the week I promise you. For the past 7 years I have been prescribed klonopin for my seizures nothing else works except that that's how strong it is. I am epileptic and I'm also a recovered addict that has been clean for 5 years but I could tell you everything there is to know about anything. But seriously you should stick with the Klonopin because they will help you more than valium but if 1 milligrams not working for you then you need to tell him if he could please up it to a little higher dosage so that way it works for you. But you also don't want to get addicted to them but if you been on value then I'm pretty sure you know about all of that and you probably need to be on a benzo regardless. But yeah seriously about the volumes just talk to your doctor about the time to think of the Klonopin really does work way better than any valium even if it is a 10 milligram. Basically to be blunt about it klonopin is just about the same exact thing as Xanax so you should be straight with the klonopins

Marie, if you require meds for long-term pain management, you are actually going to have to see a pain management specialist now. Under the new laws, your general doctor and surgeon will only be able to prescribe them for a short period of time following surgery and then they can no longer help you.

Learn more pain management details here.

The best thing you could do would be to ask them for referrals now, to avoid them having to cut you off without any advanced notice.

A specialist will also be able to help you get better control of your pain.

Do you know of any clinics in your area?
