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?

I am curious if anyone here has ever used wild lettuce extract. It has been compared to morphine but is not addictive. Just wondering if anyone has ever tried it and had success with it before I go shop for some on ebay.Thanks
I have a mass in my right pinkie finger that I felt was a blood clot but then I saw the hand surgeon today who said it is a mass but of unknown kind....I have had this thing for well over a year...maybe even two or three....I was only worried when it hurts and that is sometimes....I felt it was blood clot....he wrote on the statement for billing that it is benign mass....the options were to leave...

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!
