Hello all and Ty again for the answers to my previous post "Question about my pain meds".
I was very honest with my Dr. today on how my Oxycontin 20mg every 8 hours was going and how i Hated the TEVA brand. He said that realistically there should be no differance but there is a chance. He then wrote the RX for Brand name only (now to see if WC will pay for this).
He also upped my Lyrica to 450mg total per day now 150mg x 3 per day to help with my SEVERE leg/thigh/groin pain. I will fill my post dated RX tomorow so I will update in a day or 2 on the results of name brand and how it works for me.
I also lost one of my pain pills today and was scared to tell my Dr, I didnt want him to think i popped an extra. Long story short he said no problem and that he would fill my Rx a day early and for one xtra WOW WOW WOW! This was great to have a Dr. trust me soooo much. I feel so much better about our Dr PT relationship now.
Last but not least I broke down in tears explaining to him how i miss out on so much of my life due to my pain. At that time he reffered me out to a sike Dr. that specializes in "people like us" chronic pain, depression, opiod tolerace etc...
Has any of you ever been to one of these Dr's and has it helped you out in anyway.
Sry for the long post today!
God bless and Good day to you all!
