back problems since 1993 most resent surgery 4/26/2011
I have been taking Roxicodone 15mg 1 tablet every 6 hours, but I have a new doctor and he has put me on Morphine Sulf ER 30 mg atone tablet every 12 hours and plus the roxicodone same dosage. My question to my doctor was I was tired of taking so many of the roxicodone and only wanted one or two tablets to knock out the pain. I hought he mention, and this is why someone should be in the room with me cause I forgot, but I thought he said Oxymorphine and a low dosage.I dont think 30 is a low at all to start on something especially morpine. He is trying to get my pain level to a level that doesnt fluctuate up and down all day long. So what is anyone opinion on this topic regarding medicine. So far my 2 tablets of morphine Sulfa ER works with 1 tablet of 15mg of roxicodone and then a time where I may take 2 roxicodone and still 2 morphine tablets. Any advise so I can tell my doctor I want just one pill?
