My name is Mike and I have been in pain management for around 9 months now.I am the owner and operator of my own tree business in florida. I have been injured many times and the last one really sent my pain to a new level mainly in my legs. Before over the counter medications helped. My doctor started me off on vicadin 750mg and progressed to roxycodone30mg 3x day and percoset 3x very quickly. I am afraid because my tolerance builds really quick and my doctor isn't shy about increasing my dosage. Another fear is that these drugs will eventually hinder my ability to run my business efficiently. I have been through withdrawl once before and am very scared of it. I guess my question is will the switch to methadone hurt my ability to function, do business and manage my employees? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
