I have been suffering with severe Osteo Arthritis and fybromyalgia and Spinal steno-sis for about 15 years now and just now last year got a really good Ruematologist who now has me on Oxyicodone 5/325 every 8 hours as needed for pain,but the problem is the pain is chronic and before that law was passed I was taking 5/500 Hydrocodones from another doctor who was my Pain Management doctor until this doctor took it over. Does anyone know what the rules are about Hydrocodone and Oxyicodone when it comes to the strength of Mgs, are there rules about that too? This 5/325 is barely touching this pain and I'm having a hard time coping because it doesn't help it as much as the Hydrocodone 5/500 did and since they cut back to this 5/325 it really isn't helping much. My pain of a morning when I get up is unbearable and the soreness alone I experience is like I have been exercising allot and got really sore,but I'm not. Does anyone know more about the rules on theses Meds since this new thing took effect about the no refills thing? Is it also the Strength they are controlling too? and can the doctor maybe increase my Mg? If anyone can help, I would appreciate it very much if they know about this.
