Practical Pain Management Community Advice

I can't find a Long-acting pain medicine that my insurance will pay for other than morph sulfate which does not work for me at all. Since all the generic oxycontin was taken away...what is left?

Ask your doctor to try you on methadone, be really careful, this is a very strong long lasting pain medication.
Your doctor should know how to manage your pain with this long lasting pain medication and its cheap in price, excellent pain relief from a medication that’s been around since 1947. OxyContin is very expensive and holds a bad stigma even though its a very good long lasting pain med.
When I lost my patient assistance program I lost the OxyContin and I was scared but things turned out okay.

I switched to methadone right at at this time last year... It has change my life!! I take 1 10mg in the morning and one in the evening depending on it being good day/bad day). But there have been quite area days that I haven't needed the 2nd. That's a GINORMOUS change from the number of norcos I had been taking. Also.. I've been on the same dose of dones. Seemed like I was constantly reaching a bigger tolerance to the ever growing pile of my norco pile. I highly recommend the dones.
