I've been taking 240 Percocet 10/325 for over 10 yrs with 60 mg MS Contin twice a day for breakthrough pain. When I'm out of the blue my doctor sends me to a pain management specialist because he says he can't write for any narcotic over 120 tabs a month. I go to this new doc who wants to inj. something in my spine in an area he calls the sweet spot, and that I have been over medicated by my other doctor but only after a MRI which I had and I went back after my scan and it turns out I don't have a sweet spot. My thecal sac is 5.4 and gets worse the lower it goes. So he sends me to a surgeon with a script for Percocet 15 mg and it's not touching my pain. I was wondering if I should request something stronger? I was at least able to function with my old med plan but I'm not certain if I should ask to have my current management plan increased since he thought I was over medicated before, I wasn't sure if they made a Percocet 30mg rapid release?

You'd be very lucky if you get your doses upped. Legitimate pain patients are being weeded out, under-treated for pain because of all the opiate hysteria. If you are on a 15mg plan, most likely you should stay there. Your body will adjust. I would look into kratom or medical Marijuana to ease the pain, and definitely withdrawals as they lower your meds. It's happening to everybody. Sorry sweetie. Good luck.

They make Roxicodone 30 milligram, which I'm almost positive is what you're taking when you say Percocet 15mg..so to answer your question.. Yes they do have them.

Percocet only makes 2.5mg 5mg and 10mg strengths its a combos drug with acetaminophen now once you get to 15mg 20mg and 30mg the drug name is oxy ir and or endocet the difference between them is that oxy ir only has oxycodone in it there is no acetaminophen its just oxycodone its meant to be taking more of without the worrying of tylenol damage to the liver it is alway fadt acting the 15mg oxycodone chancees are you have the ir immediate release for if they are not qorking ask your doctor to either up the strength to 20mg or 30mg or to up the dosage instead of taking 1 maybe take 2 or 3 but ask.your dr before you do anything

The MS Contin 60 are supposed to be taken every 12 hours as they're time releases. The Percocet or oxy whatever he prescribes is for breakthrough pain, not the other way around. I've also been on MS Contin for 12 years and have been able to wean my dose down depending on my activity and rarely do I need anything for breakthrough if I make sure I don't go over the 12 hours on the morphine.

Hi - Don't let anyone inj. anything. I had that done for pain MANY times and it was USELESS - Plus the risks outweigh any possible benefit. Not to mention the deterioration if they use steroid inj's. too.

Just stick to your pain meds. Find another doctor, and try to only use the dose that alleviates your pain. I ran into the mistake of constantly UPing my dose of Oxys and before I knew it they were no longer working. I was only taking them to not be sick, like a junkie! I was upped to 16 80mg oxycontin with breakthrough 20mg OXY IR / per day... Not joking! THEN - when I told the doc that was even failing - They threw me on high dose methadone!!!!!

So just be careful. YOU WILL get to this point if you are not cautious!!!! Never in 100 TRILLION years did I EVER think I would be where I am at - and it happened.

There is an instant release yes. But it's oxycodone (they are without the Tylenol or other additives ) they do help but for only a short time. I'd ask for something that is extended release along with the instant release. I take 60 MG a day of oxycodone and 90 MG a day of extended release morphine. Before adding the extended releases was added my pain only went away for a short period. The thing about pain management is that they kinda have to start out slow they are being watched like hawks by the DEA at the moment. But most definitely keep a pain diary and complain complain complain about the pain. If you tell them everything is okay then they will just leave things the same. The point of pm is getting that pain under control and they know this so don't be afraid to let them know how you are feeling!

My extended release is every 8 hours. I think maybe that's just how it's set up for you. Not everyone's is 12 hours apart.

I'm glad u replied to this post, I have been in P.M. for several years now and the first clinic was a joke just jumped into burning nerves (57 total) telling me it would re leave my pain issues anywhere from 2 to 6 years all it did was make the pain worse and cause a rare side effect of killing the muscles around said nerve, when 2 months after all these nerves have been burnt go by there is no relief this Dr wants to start over telling me the dead muscles are just a side effect I have to deal with, thru all this all I had for pain was hydro 5/325 3X a day(every 8hrs) and no matter how much I begged I was to the point of using a cane and in tears pain but he wouldn't for the 2 yrs I was there even up it. I ask for second opinion where I am now is better except they dont seem to understand the intense pain they started me on hydro 10/325 I was only on them for the first month I said it wasn't doin anything for my pain she said "I didn't think they would so here you go maybe this will help we will change you to oxy 10/325 if these don't help in a couple months we will work on something else" that was almost 3 yrs ago the last 2 visits was with a different Dr in the clinic and I didn't have to mention it I have been reduced to a walker and feel like a the lil tomatoes in a sewing kit he actually had the nerve to ask if we should just take the pain meds away completely instead of change them or up them or something like that...but reading ur comment gives me hope that maybe I can go to my Dr with names and it mite help...so thank you so much!!!

I'm very angry and disappointed. Since January of this year my pm specialist (what a joke that word is used) has so screwed with me in regards to changing my meds for my pain. Just saw her last week, took my wife along with me for for her input & to try & keep me from breaking down crying, weeping like little baby!! How demeaning does that feel? Now she is passing the buck to my primary care Dr. Pretty sure she's washing her hands of me. Now I've got a month of more anxiety to look forward to until my yearly physical. Not worried about the actual physical though. Worried about him dropping me as well, even though I've been with him for many years. I'm overwhelmed, as is my wife of 20 plus years. If not for her support through all this, who knows... I can't hit these keys fast enough to get out all the anger and frustration that people in our position share with me. Oxycontin, the non addictive miracle narcotic of the 90's isn't modern medicine... Just wonderful... Know who it's wonderful for? We all know - The drug companies. Had I known way back then I would have invested, they came out of the recession pretty well. We could all go on longer rants about this situation we're forced to live with, I'm fairly certain. It is kind of cathartic to share this. Like I said before, I could rant for hours. Uhh Ohh, time to take my meds!!! My regards to all of you other patients.

To all you people with back pain, I had surgery on my lower spine (L3-L4) three years ago... I'm in about as much pain as before the surgery... And if any 'pain doctor' wants to give you injections, laugh at him and leave the room...Crooks! Injections are useless, the lessening of the pain lasts for up to 3 weeks and then nothing, and afterwards the pain you have in your back will be twice as bad as before! The insurance companies pay these pricks thousands of dollars to make us feel worse. Amazing. And yet the government wants to go after those of us who can barely stand up from the pain we experience on a daily basis by not allowing us to figure out with our doctors what meds might help us lesson the agony. Shameful.

Our lives get worse because of the people not in pain that are addicted! I have always been good, never taken more than prescribed, but have not had an increase in 13 yrs! I was lucky back then to have a Dr. who listened, and I was put on the Fentanyl patches which is great to have a small amount in me constantly. I'm on Percocet as well, but I comply with my Doctor, which now includes a contract and drug panels. My issue is Workmans Comp! They are using the system to try to get me off. They claim the dangers, but we all know it's because they don't want to pay for the name brand for me. I'm told the Judge and insurance Co. want everyone off of opioids. Do they sound like Doctors? My Doc says it's ok for me to be on them, I finally found a Pain DR to see and write a report, (workmans comp insisted) and he recommended to try alternative treatments, but if they don't help he doesn't recommend cutting the meds. So far acupuncture helps my neck, but not my lower back. Now, because of walking with the cane for all these yrs and being in pain everyday, I'm shorter (53 yrs old), have both shoulders needing surgery, carpal tunnel in my right hand, and the worst is my hips that need replacements. My life is hell in pain, and anxiety when I have to deal with Comp, and that includes sometimes monthly when they play with me and don't approve my meds at the pharmacy. I worked hard all my life, stopped working way past the time I should have, led a good life helping people, never doing wrong, so it hurts being treated this way. Why do we have to live in pain? No one who doesn't live in pain understands.

That really sucks to be so young and be in this awful state of agony. I get lame pain killers from my GP bless her. The so called 'Pain Doctors' only want to give you injections in your spine that are useless and mostly cause deeper pain after a couple of weeks. They'll give you at the most 2 months of pain pills here in NYC. It's surprising to me that people here are able to get stuff like morphine? Jeez.. They'd laugh at you if you asked for something that strong. The whole situation is insane and I hope you feel better my Dear. I found that doing physical therapy helped to some extent. Meds are better of course to knock out the pain. I'm concerned to keep the amount I take to a minimum in order to maintain some sort of efficacy.
Good luck to you.
