Methadone stronger than oxycodone?
I switched from 10 mgs. methadone 3 times a day to 10 mgs. of oxycodone 2 times a day. The methadone worked for pain but made me nutty. Oxycodone is better for that but this dosage doesn't seem to be helping me as much as the methadone did for pain. I am going to the doctor to try to get the oxycodone up to 20mgs. Should I ask for 3 times a day instead of two? My pain is unbearable right now. If I take more than I am supposed to he will count it and i will get in trouble. I don't want him to think I am a drug addict either. He is a good Dr. and he knows my pain. But I don't want to push it with him. I really think that oxy will work at these doses and we can stick to this medication. Should I dare ask him or just go back to methadone for pain relief but remain nutty? Help! Also, is Methadone really considered stronger that oxycodone?

My family is having dinner tonight, a lovely Saturday for them. I was invited, but there isn't enough gas in the car to go over. I spent 20 minutes today listening to my Mom's epic struggle to find the right light bulb for her bathroom and how difficult that was, then the fight she and my Dad got into over the light bulb. She finally gets around to asking how I am, and when I tell her how much...
Thank you for all of this pain that never leaves my body. Thank you so so much for helping me find this forum and friends on DS, and all of the other wonderful people doing their "Time" in "Hell on Earth" with me! I am considering my "Time" as a full payment for my castle and automatic gate opener to Heaven! In Jesus Name I Pray. Thank you! Amen. I am a True Believer in God and Jesus Christ!...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
