    I really want to follow the Drs. prescription.
    The narcotic won't last the 12 hrs. it's supposed to and I don't want to take it now. This is only the 1st day on the increase to 20mg twice a day. I was on 10mg three times a day. Took the X-Tylenol.
    I have to go thru mor days like this.
    Help Please !

    Thank-you for being here. I had to give in.
    I'll try again tomorrow.
    I do appreciate the time it takes to post. I don't get to do it often. It means so much to have your posts.
    Love and Huggs, Selma

    Speak with a nurse and explain med is not lasting 12 hours,
    that you are having too much breakthrough pain. Be prepared with you pharmacies phone number b/c nurse will ask for it. I'm on an nonsteroidal anti-inflmatory and it
    is working for me. Remember it can take a lot of trial and errors before the meds are right for YOU.

    Please call your Doctor's nurse Monday - you may be pleasantly suprised or greatly disappointed, but your doctor needs to know what works with you and what doesn't.

    God Bless and lots of soft hugs,
