Re: High tolerance to Pain meds. HELP PLEASE!!!
I too have been on the narcotics rollercoaster ride for a few years now. At presentI am stable with fentanyl 25mgh, with daily doses; 4-10mg percs, 3-10mg flexeril, 6 fiorocet, 3-600mg gabapentin and 10mg valium as needed. My pain is now under control. It will vary from person to person for total pain relief. I funtion as a normal person does. In fact, I do drive profesionally with no problems. Some others would not be able to handle the meds for pain as I do and there are others whom I couldn't handle the meds that they are on. DO NOT be afraid to talk to your PM about relief from pain. If it takes a combination to get there, at least you can be pain free. There is no need to suffer unless you enjoy it.
