Re: Is prescribing 3 different pain meds common practice?

To reiterate, more than 2 PAIN meds is unusual. One long acting, one short acting for bt.

Some PM Docs will add a muscle relaxant to the mix.

Another thing I'm seeing some of, although still rare, is a long acting med combined with a short acting med with Actiq thrown in for extremely horrific bt.
