I wear a 100mg Duralgesic patch and have percocet and liquid morphine for breakthru pain depending on the severity. The patch works very well and unless I am in attack I usualy don't need the other medication. But I will tell you this: When I am in severe pain my partner will put the dropper of morphone in my mouth FOR me if I am unable to do it myself.
If the dosage of medicationor maybe the medication itself is not working for you, maybe you need to discuss changing the medication or increasing the dosage with your doctor. You shouldn't have to lie about what is required to relieve your pain. I know that some people have to but I haven't had to so far in my experience.
I wish you well and as I said, feel free to e-mail me if you need someone to talk to who understands. Good Luck.
