well, before surgery and after I was preferring 10/325 mg Percocets. I was given Lortabs after surgery, but they didn't quite cut it. I am now on 7.5/325 percs. I take two usually at a time, sometimes I try and take one, but we'll see....
If your looking for the best medication to help with you pain you need to take a long acting or time released medication on a regular basis and then a short acting medication for the break-thru pain.
I have done the:
oxycontin/vicodin for BT
duragesic patch/percocert for BT
methadone percocet for BT
with CP you can't really get good paim management without the longer acting medications and then meds for the BT.
