Since honesty is the best policy, I will say that I got a script yesterday. My doctor dropped it from 10/500 to 5/500 and gave me a small amount to get through the pain I'm having. I'm disappointed in myself but at the same time I felt like the pain was intolerable. Just this CYCLE...... Probably won't post for awhile. Feeling like a dog with its tail between its legs.

dont be so hard on yourself kelly and just try to take the script as directed. and be careful with taking alot of those ive read they can be toxic at around 8 in one day, im not a doctor though. ive also never had a legit reason for taking them other than my recent surgery which got me right back into it, im sure someone will give ya better advice soon, dont "not post" though.
Hi Kelly: Sorry you are having so much pain with your back. Hey I know all about back pain. I shattered mine 4 months ago and spent 2 months in the hospital. Its hard to live with pain. The problem is we cross the line with the pain meds because we use them for the high and not just for the pain. If you can take them as directed maybe you wouldn't be so hard on yourself. Have you told your doctor that you have a problem with the meds? I know how hard that is to do but maybe he could help you so you only take them as directed. It is such a horrible cycle with the meds. You love them and hate them at the same time. You need to keep posting though. It really does help to talk things out. I hope your OK today. Again I'm sorry your having a hard time. Take care.
thank you everyone for your kind words, support, and advice. I picked up the meds yesterday and I felt like a frickin crack head! I took one.....and felt no pain relief after 2 hours. I took another one.... then it kicked in but I felt "sick", nauseated....
I hope this isn't another cycle for me. I dont like the way I function on pain meds.
