Re: Question about doctors and pain meds

hi little bear,
i love your name here. it's cute.
first ask the doc, all he/she can say is no. if you have never asked before i doubt they will think you are getting ready to be an addict. i go to my internist for the one pain med i take for arthritis.
second, don't tell anyone you take it. nobody's business but yours and your docs.
last, addiction is a body mind thing. some days i take nothing and some days i take up to 3. been on the same med and dosage for 13 years. skipping days is no problem.
sometimes we need to break the cycle of pain. clinical studies have proven this promotes healing. listen to your body and do what feels right for you, no one else.
peace,
blue
