View Full Version : trouble finding a long acting pain medicine

09-16-2012, 09:07 AM
I have OA, RA, Fibro, Sciatica nerve damage, degenertive disc disease...I am currently on percocet for pain. I am trying to find a long acting pain medicine. I have tried oxycontin and fentynal patches. The oxycontin made me to "loopy" and I got headaches from it. The fentynal patches helped somewhat, when they stayed on. I am wondering if there is anything like this: I could take it at night, it would help me sleep throughout the night, wake up with less pain and just take a percocet for break through pain.
