Breakthru pain doses

How many times a day should you take your breakthru med before you decide to raise the dose of the long acting drug you take?

Re: Breakthru pain doses

I would think that would be a question you would direct towards your doctor in my personal opinion. Each doctor has different opinions and ways of doing things. You might give him a call.

Re: Breakthru pain doses

Good question! You might want to try posting this on the pain management board for more responses. I think it might depend on the type of meds you are on. If you are talking pain patches vs pain meds etc.
Hope you get your answers!

Re: Breakthru pain doses

A lot of variables for me. Some days I don't need any. Weather, activity, the way I sleep, etc. can up the need for break thru pain meds.
