It is not known for increasing pain. In fact, it is known for the opposite, for handling pain that other pain meds don't.
I wasn't saying that the pain is increasing I was saying I still have pain. I think it's simply a factor of the conversion from my prior meds (i.e. too small dose of Fentanyl). We all know docs want to start out as small as possible.
