Discussions that mention vicodin

Pain Management board

My GP has been presribing mt pain meds. 1st Vicodin and now perocet 7.5 mg. He said my "next step" would be Oxycontin. I am a little scared to take that leap. At what point do you go to a PM doc and do you have to get a referral from you GP ? Are PM Doc's more in the know about how to manage chronic pain ?
