Hi guys. My lower back pain is severe again. My 40mg a day OxyContin is not keeping me comfortable at all.
I met my Dr last night and he gave me 30mg each 12 hours but it was not enough in the day. He did not want to try another kind of drug. I took that today and I'm still in pain. I'm in bed now and feel really low. I have 20mg IR Oxycontins for flare ups but these are not helping either. I hope it's just a bad month.
I doubled my dose of the 30mg ( I used to do this with the 20mg and I spoke about it with my dr) So, on the 60mg I have some relief.
Have you had the odd severe pain month? And then go back to your 'normal' horrible pain level?
