Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to wean down on their meds if their pain is improving? I'm having a heck of a time. I have MS, and i get attacks that have me on 400mg of oxyconting and 12 per day b/t of oxycodone 30's. Now attack is over and it's just my fibromyalgia, my health plan chnaged and they don't pay for oxyconting so i went to methadone, mscontin with no avail and the patch gave my hyperpigmentation which is cosigng me a ton of money at a surgeons (cosmetic) office to get rid off. now i weaned myself off the LA meds and only want the short acting ones, they reduced those to 9 due to some new office protocoal of only every 6 hours instead of 4 for short acting meds from now on. Now, after giving up 400mg of oxyconting by myself and getting ill and handling it, i'm trying it with my oxycodone and it's just not happening and i'm going to be out early. shouldn't they be helping me wean down? im at a loss here. i'm at the point where i'm ready to detox, they do that with bup or sub. i'm sick of being pain free or mostly, then withdrawsl cu z i don't have enough medicine and i'll be damned if i'm going to end up on the other board!!! can someone tell me how to wean down or hsould i call my docotr and tell them to help me? the girls at the front office will never let me talk to anyone, they're cases there.i'm so sick of these meds......so sick until i hurt then i'm thankful, it's kinda confusing! I just don't want LA meds anymore unless i'm in an attack, when i went to morphine i called in and said i'm wasted, and i want to be pain free not stoned out of my head. so i weaned off them myself. anybody know of anyting that is not physically dependant? It took a lot to get myself of that oxyconting especially 400mg daily, is it too much to ask for my 12 oxycodone back rather than the 9 they decreaseds it too? those 3 pills make a difference. how many do hyou think i'd need to be on to not go through w/d? i have high tolerance i need at least 2-3 at a time when the pain hits. one does nothing. i'm wondering if i can make my body work at one? is it possible to ewean down and still have them work? i'm sitting here sweating right now for i refuse o to take for w/d. it's not what they're for. thanks.............
