Could someone please advise me , as I have a BIG PROBLEM.
I'm suffering from Central Pain SYNDROME following a severe STROKE in 2006 .
I was tried on several drugs, but methadone @ 150mg daily is what I've been on for years, which totally destroyed my teeth . In November of 2015, I was told by Pain Management, that because of new federal guidelines that my MME-morphine equivalent MUST BE MUCH LOWER . They started reducing my daily level at that time .Now, 6 months later, I'm now at 20 mg, tomorrow, I go on 15 mg daily, after being on 20 for the last week. I go to the pain clinic Friday and I'm not sure what to ask for, as I need 24 hour pain relief . Could anyone with experience please Help .
I'm in a bad situation, but h happy that I'm getting off of the methadone, after years of dragging the ball and chains around, however, I'm right where I started . Could someone Please advise what medicine that I could possibly go on that could help me for 24 hours, with a lower make number, PLEASE .
Also, how low does one need to be to jump off the done ... ?
Many thanks and may GOD Bless each of you .
Ferrell

If they are talking about the CDC guidelines they have lowered you way below their recommended dose is 90 morphine milligram equivalent . Which with you being on Methadone they could give you at least 60 mg a day of Methadone because that equals 90 mme aday
