The issue in GetHuman-marysmai's own words
I've been taking Methadone ** mg. * times a day for pain control due to Fibromyalgia for about * years. This medication along with Cymbalta, Gabapentin & Baclofen has helped control my pain & allowed me to be more active. About * months ago my Dr. advised me that the CDC is telling Dr's to get their patients off Methadone due to the narcotics crises. He lowered my Methadone to * times a day & added Oxycodone. He prescribed this to be taken along with the Methadone. So I was taking Methadone * X's a day & Oxycodone * X's a day. I was so overdosed that I couldn't function normally. So on my own I took the Methadone every * hours during the day & took * Oxycodone at bedtime. I could barely get by with this. My pain level was much higher. Then yesterday I had a Dr visit & my Dr. lowered the Methadone again. Instead of every * every * hours-(**) pills, he prescribed * every *-** hours (**) pills. He said he might have to lower the dosage & I told him that I would be in a lot of pain because I'm barely getting along now. He said the CDC doesn't care if I'm in pain. And the CDC has told Dr's that they can't care about their patient's pain level as well. I just can't believe that. Yesterday I had to take the Methadone twice a day & I had the Ozycodone to take as well but my Dr had not told me how to take the Oxycodone along with the Methadone. I tried calling his office but could not reach anyone. I spoke to my pharmacist but he said I should talk to my Dr. I can't live like this. I've had Fibromyalgia for about ** years. Is there any truth to what my Dr is telling me? I need help!!!
