need help new dr wont provide breakthrough meds
Hey guys its been a whille.I switched drs and due to pain havnt been on computer but I realy need your help,advice and input. I was previously on oxycodone 20mg IR 4x daily which worked great. Then I switched Drs and she put me on the fentanyl patch 50mcg an hour. It takes forever to kick in and about the time it does its time for a new patch change.Then comes more problems because I feel pain and withdrawl for 24-36 hours till the new one kicks in.Plus Ive tried different brands and NONE of them stick.I follow the patient insert and dr advice and clean and dry the area 1st and even tape it and it still doesnt stick..Last month I ran out early from losing 3 patches! So theres some of my problems. Heres my biggest problem.My dr doesnt believe in breakthru meds! And this patch DOESNT cover my pain unless Im sitting still like a vegetable.My house is a wreck and my 80 year old grandpa has to help get kids ready for school in the mornings and help with meals because Im in to much pain to do just about anything.For such a strong opiate, it sure x*#&s for pain! Thats another thhing Im only 31. If she puts me on fentanyl now what will I do when Im 50? Im trying to get into a dr with a good reputation for pain patients but hes a gp.Id like to avoid pain management as Ive already done that because they want to do injections and Ive already had them and they didnt help and caused bad reactions.What do I do?How do I find a decent dr to either take me off this patch and provide shortacting meds or leave me on it and provide breakthru meds without sounding like a drug seeker?Im at the end of my rope Im sick of crying everyday and staying in bed.Im in so much pain Ive considered taking my life to end this pain.Ineed help guys please respond as soon as possible.All advice is greatly appreciated.And btw no I cant go back to the dr who provided the oxycodone I wish I could.
