David was put on Oxycontin 70mgs about 9 months ago with a 'spare' 10 extra if he needed. Oxynorm for breakthrough.
Initially he felt awful and didn't think they were right for him. Turned out it was withdrawal from stopping Fentanyl. Consultant had said no withdrawal likely but...
Monday this week I put in a script for the 40 mg tabs which always have to be ordered. Someone in Pharmacy forgot and suddenly their was a language barrier.
Meantime he took 30mg x 2 and what a difference in 3 short days.
His tiredness and listlessness had lifted. Still pots of pain but he felt well.
Going to try on this dose for a while and see if he lasts. Maybe drop another 10mg.
Maybe this climate is starting to do what we moved here for.
