BMOM RE IVY

I know, right? :)   She (IVY) was our  CP champion cheerleader. Shes right though, what if someone saw what the addiction specialist said, and accepted it as truth? Sure doesnt help our fight as CPP. Go IVY!

Without spewing misinformation, he/ she wouldn't have a job.

Obviously cut from the same grain as those who produced "Reefer Madness."

Terminology

I would also have thought that an addiction specialist would know the differnece between the terms: Dependence, tolerance, addiction, and abuse.  They are not interchangable.

The first 4 weeks you can continue your current dose. After the first 4 weeks they take you off any IR meds. The only IR you can take is oxy with the trial (only for the first 4 weeks), which includes percocet. They will put you on a dose thats related to what you need. Dose is from 20mg to 160mg for the test medicine. If they are anything like where I am going they will help you out and get you on what you need.

 

Hope this helps

Me too

testrunner,

I am in the study, it has only been a few weeks, they will convert the amt your taking to the study drug, they seem super relutant to give any IR. I am going to an unschedualed appt to up my night time dose and I am telling them I have to have IR for as soon as I wake up...Mid afternoon and most everynight in the middle of thr night. I am having slight headaches and some light nausea. I am very opiate tolerant so I'm not sure what is going on. I really hate doing this but I have no choice it is a money thing. So in desperation I have to do this for the free meds. Good luck to you and let me know how things are going, believe me I am right there with ya!

Greetings

Unit 20

I had to get off the patch that worked super good, although it never lasted 7 days, but now I am forced to be in this study oxy/neltrexone it has been a hassle, the dose is wrong, I have to keep going back, having major break thru pain from one 12 hour does to another, and believe me the dose does not last anywhere near 12 hours, it releases so slow takes forever to get relief. Better than nothing I guess. When told the Researcher person that I most likely am going to need IR oxy she told the doctor that was present, (out of the side of her mouth)  bit the bullet! I guess she thinks I am slow or something..GPA 4.0 for 3 years straight thus far, or maybe it was my tatoo sticking out that she precived I was dull minded, I don't miss much....beside me defending my intelligents.....Oh I'm not the best speller !Tongue out I told her bit the bullet easy for you to say! I get really enraged when people say that, especially if they have not experienced what chonic pain is and does to a person.

Peace

Bevis whoever,Do you all live

Bevis whoever,

Do you all live under a freaken rock, I can see your soap boxes are made of sand, I do believe your all on a pitty trip, it messes everything up for us, what about us, I get the pain thing, I have had chonic pain for about 9 years, don't worry I really don't need to be communication with so many narrow minded people. Like I said before maybe ask your PHD's if people with chonic pain especially newly dignosed have a tendency to over medicate become addicted due tolerence issues. Anyone on these kinds of medications, try to just stop! Beside pain see what else happens ....maybe hardcore withdrawl....duh....with use (tolerence) addictions happen, maybe not like a typical herion addiction where your going be standing in the rain waiting for a fix...WAKE UP PEOPLE pharmacuticls are a major problem in our society! Pain or no pain if narcotics are taken on a regular basis with higher doses and  we obey tolerence, we have a physical addiction to the drug. WHO has been lying to you guys! No need to reply to me, I'm out of here! I never needed to come on these sites anyway, and boo whooo, now I know why! You guys are in more denial than the street addicts!YellTongue out

Don't let the door hit you on the way out...you have not quit, you are banned. G.

None of us are in denial, but

None of us are in denial, but we do enjoy using the proper terms and while it's true that if we discontinue our medication we will go through W/D. Nodody here has ever disputed that fact.

I think most CP patients do take offense to the way some people come in and throw words around, or say that they are "specialists" but then use the word addiction instead of dependence. And there is a difference between the two.

I can't speak for anyone else, but several of us here have witnessed addiction within our own family or from people close to us, and so we do know the difference and it is huge, in some cases it clearly defines reasons why we are certain we will never let ourselves take that same path in life, and why we are so adamant about seperating or making the distinction between the definitions.

Ok, I so want to respond to post #37, made me SO angry....but see that Goat banned him/her, and so won't waste my breath (or typing skills)...man there is so much I want to say, but wont. Thank you goat for saving me a coronary!!! (And saving everyone from being subjected to another novel sized post)

P.S. I dont know where he/she got the information, but as an addiction specialist, he/she should know better. I mean I dropped out of high school and I know better. No excuse for spreading such misinformation.

Specialist

Unfortunately, I have found that persons who are addiction specialists, are sort of like recovering alcoholics, when it comes to their attitudes about controlled medicines.  Also, how can he be a specialist, when he is still in school .  He said: " I guess she thinks I am slow or something..GPA 4.0 for 3 years straight thus far, "  You know, in medical schoold, they often steer the person who graduates with a 4.0 into research, because they can't work with patients.
