Discussions that mention combunox

Pain Management board


Thank you Sherri and Kelsey for replying.
I'll attempt to answer. I WAS on Actiq and Combunox. Quit the Actiq, cold turkey, Monday. Not fun, but I'm not dead so that's good I guess. I'm still taking the Combunox but it's not that great. Then again, I have the tolerance of an elephant so who knows?
I had a pain doc that I adored and he was also a Physiatrist. I 1000% believed that he was going to be the one to help me. Unfortunately, the day after the visit with his jerk surgeon partner, I was thrown to the wolves. They called me and told me there was nothing more he could do for more and that he was sending me to another pain doc who specializes in chronic pain control. I was not happy about this but it was out of my control. I just despise the idea of being on pain meds the rest of my life. I'm usually as miserable ON meds as I am OFF. It's a sad existence. Sorry, fell into the "poor me's" again.
I see the new pain doc next month. Until then, I'm pretty much just taking Combunox spiradically in order to stretch the last 30 I was given. Thanks again for your responses!
