As I mentioned in my subject I finally got my scripts "adjusted"....I now get Oxycodone 20mg TID #90 MsContin 100mg TID #90 and Klonopin 1mg TID #90.... I feel that instead of giving me sucha high dose of MsContin that he shoulda just gave me what I used 2 get Oxycodone 30mg 4-6 x's a day but the dr told me he doesn't prescribe the 30mgs anymore which is funny cuz I'm friends with a couple people who also go to my dr and I've been seeing this dr since late August 2012 and my other friends have only been seeing him for a year or two and their injuries aren't not even in the same zip code as mine but yet they ALL r prescribed the Oxycodone 30mg TID #90 and the MsContin 60mg QID #120!!!!!!!!! I confronted the idiotic sad excuse for a "dr" and he blatantly lied to me and denied that 1st off he doesn't prescribe Oxycodone 30mg to ANYONE no matter what the injury may be and 2nd off that he doesn't accept cash payments for dr visits because its now illegal in the state of NJ..now all of the people I know who go there STILL r paying cash except for 1 guy..all the people I know sell their Oxycodone 30s and the MsContin 60s and the Xanax 2mgs and make A LOT of $$ in the process obviously....they all have it set up so that they're all seen on the same day and the 1 guy who saves some Oxy MsContin and Xanax for when they've gotta go to their appt and he leaves a couple of those wax paper cups that you get by the water cooler and he urinates in em and hides em somewhere in the bathroom so when the other guys go in they use his....sorry about that I got off topic so I asked/begged my idiot "dr" that if he's not gonna gimme the 30s to please increase my 20s to 4-6x's a day but the headstrong heartless piece of trash wouldn't do it because it would be too high of a quantity so I suggested that he do it for just the Oxy 20s biweekly and/or every 3 weeks but he still wouldn't do it and that's when he raised the MsContin from 60mg #60 to 100mg #90 like wtfs he thinking !!!!! He'd rather gimme 300mgs altogether of the MsContin 100mg than just gimme 1-2 of em a day and raise either the quantity of the 20s or gimme my #%^*! 30mgs back again..I'm relatively new to the MsContin I'm not sure which generics r better than others so far I've tried Mylan Mallinckrodt and Watson once..does anyone have any suggestions on which generic(s) r the best..I get the generic Amneal for my Oxycodone 20s and that works very good it helps my lumbar and my thoracic..the only bad thing now is that my stupid script insurance won't cover the 20s they want me to try the 15s which I already did when I 1st started seeing the "dr" or he has to gimme the 30s which he won't so I was forced to have his incompetent inept idiotic retarded despicable heinous staff appeal the denial saying that I throw up when I take the generic 15s..people please think of something I can say and/or do to get what I soooooo desperately need!!!!!!! Thanks

Chronic non-malignant pain in NJ.....

Dear Pain killin -

I'm really sorry that things are not going the way that you think they should.  It's helped me to realize that people in chronic, non-malignant pain need to just be appreciative cause the good Dr. doesn't really have to give us anything.  The decent PM doctors of the recent past have been manipulated, lied to and deceived with every kind of tale that you can imagine and plenty that we wouldn't even believe!  I honestly wish you the very best though.  It is hellish to be in severe pain and have the dog ACTUALLY eat the scrip .... the tales that are very believable just get a laugh and a smirk.  A tough state of affairs my friend. We just can't afford to say but so much.

I SORTA DISAGREE WITH SOME OF WHAT U SAID

Those PM drs CHOSE the PM specialist profession so they're obligated to help u MANAGE ur pain NOT let u suffer because they were greedy and believed the obvious lies told to them by addicts!!!! chronic pain sufferers shouldn't be penalized because of the money hungry fueled "poor judgment" they made!!!! heck they went to school for over 8yrs to get their degrees and they get paid crazy amounts of money for what they do not to mention all the bonuses from the pharmaceutical companies that they get..I see way more truly injured people not get what they should and the lying addicts get whatever they want..the PM field is soooo CORRUPT its a disgrace!!!! they need to get rid of their god complexes and start taking that oath they swore to follow WAYYYY MORE SERIOUSLY

Sorry to hijack but I can't figure out how to create my own topi

Hi.I tried for 30 minutes trying to find out how to create my own topic and finally gave up.I desperately need advice for my dad asap.he's new to this pain pill business.he's prescribed 40 mg oxycontin twice a day.he's having trouble with it lasting all day,so his Dr said to cut them in half to take 4 times a day.Dr said if not crushed the time release would still remain.so is that true?also,how do would that work,since it's 40mg cut n half would it release the whole 20mg for 12 hours or 10mg at first and then0 mg later.if so how much later?and how long will the pills last?and how long will they take to take effect and how long will they lastorry for all the questions there's just a lot of conflicting info on the web and everyone here seems knowledgeable and experience.and I apologize again for hijacking this thread,not very internet or tech savvy.thanks everyone for listening

ItsWhatever this is what ur dads gotta do

He has 2 ask the pain dr 4 breakthrough pain meds so when the OxyContin starts 2 go away he can take the breakthrough meds..the best breakthrough meds r Oxycodone 30mg 3-4 times a day pending on how bad his pain is..the dr might start him off with 15mgs which r pretty weak if ur pains severe n he'd probably need at least 4-6 a day so thats what u guys should definitely do..the dr lied if u break a OxyContin in 1/2 it'll take away the time release n it'll only last 2hrs of halfway decent pain relief if ur lucky!!!! ur dad should also consider in addition 2 the breakthrough Oxycodones he should either ask 4 3 40mgs of the OxyContin a day or 2 of the 60mgs a day..MsContin is also a very good controlled release pain med I've had the 40mgs of OxyContin for YEARS but I def think the MsContins more potent and strong n lasts sorta long depending on how high the mgs r..I hope this helps u n ur dad..I'll pray 4 u guys

How can you suggest dosages needed?

Older people are most often prescribed less of a dose to keep them from further injury. Less is more when you are in danger of being a bit intoxicated from high doses.  Never tamper with oxy er tablets.

Meds ajusted

Its really a "all over the place" kind of post..................I should know as i have been one of the origanal "all over the place kids!!!" Just do not focus on just the"30s" and you will get 15s or so and a main MS Contin and be fine..I have the same thing with my doc.You will never get what you want.....But if you try sometimes you get what you need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

rckr dan

I get the oxycodone 20s TID but I need em to be adjusted to at least QID!!!! The 30mg is great for the chronic constant acute pain that I suffer from..The MsContin 100mg TID helps but when I used to get the OxyContin 40mg BID along with the morphine and the oxycodone I never ran out....now when I just saw my idiot sad excuse for a dr the 1st thing he said to me was what med r we going to lower today!!!!!! I'm like r u fn kidding me I'm BARELY making it through with the already SUPER LOW AMOUNTS ur giving me so after arguing with him he didn't lower any of my pain meds he instead lowered my fn klonopin 1mg from TID to BID which equals out to #30 less pills!!!!!!so instead of getting #90 I get #60 when I used to get #60 of the 2mg klonopin n it worked wonderfully for my severe ptsd..idk about everyone else but for me the more stressed out I am the more my back hurts and not to mention that I'm in the middle of a disability case where I stand to get over 250K because I was injured b4 the age or of 21....I was actually injured when I just graduated HS I was late 16yrs old when I was injured so the state has to go retro from my age now 27 (about to be 28 on 11-18-15) all the way back to how old I was when I 1st got soooo badly hurt..and if this foolish pathetic pitiful excuse for a "dr" keeps lowering my meds for no damnd good reason I'm going to be denied again and I DESPERATELY NEED THAT $$$$!!!! if anyone has any ideas and/or advice or HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS it would be greatly appreciated =D

Yes honestly

 I think your dose is high for your age bro.  You have many years to go and you just can't keep upping the meds...try stretching or walking....ice or heat...non narcotics...tens unit...so many options...I'm not trying to be rude..just honest...I am in my 40s

Your diagnosis ? If you don't mind...you just might be needing a large dose..
