Me: I feel worse now than before we started treatment. I'm too tired during the day and hate having to drink more and more caffeine energy shots just to make sure I don't hurt myself or someone else in a car accident. Maybe the oxycodone is affecting my sleep too much? Maybe I could switch to a low dose of codeine? Or maybe switch back to tramadol?
Doctor: Let's just stick with what we're doing. I'll see you again in six months.
