Re: help needed truely unsure what to do

Dear living rock, If I were you I would ask the PM dr face to face again or call & leave a message asking the dr to call me & if i had to give reason i would say pain keeping me awake most of the night. And, I would say to his face or his ear that the oxycontin is not lasting but 16 out of 24 hours & that in that 8 hour period of time that I hurt too much to sleep & it is really an issue now & what can we do to fix it. Going to a new PM dr is too hard, having to wait for the trust to build, etc, I would give my dr another chance before leaving & ask directly what can we do this is affecting my life too much to ignore now.

P.s. Have you ever tried 20mg 3 a day or asked the dr about that option? Of course, they would have to be prescribed that way b/c oxycontin cannot be broken or cut.
