Why don't you just change doctors to someone who may be more willing to work with you? As a paying customer, you have a choice with whom you spend your money, and in the end it's his loss for not wanting to help you.

I would strongly recommend seeing a pain management specialist since they are at least more knowledgeable and understanding of these types of medications and what true chronic pain patients really have to go through.

Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. However this process is usually done under the supervision of your doctor.

If you need assistance finding pain management specialists in your area, I'd suggest visiting the link below:

I hope this info helps!
