    hi doxy, totally agree with you here!

    That's why i get SO ANGRY at the drug sellers and corrupt doctors in this town who give/sell these meds like candy, we just had 2 docs busted for "selling" scripts, people would line up around the block, come thru the line a couple times, hand over cash (no insur. here!) and walk away with scripts for enough oxycontin to sell that they made in a week what we would be lucky to get from SSDI in a year!

    so many on this board are suffering with no relief cuz their docs are afraid to prescribe what they need, because of situations like this! And also, with the "war on drugs" it is going to get harder for those of us on these meds to get them, while the street dealers have them by the thousands! What a system!

    I was able to work 2 years more with pain meds than i ever could've without, and now, can get a couple of sporadic good hours a day when meds are timed right. (this would be the time LTD comes around with their videocameras, lol!)
    I thank God every day for my meds!
    take care,-- L

    Doxy,

    Pain meds have never helped my fibro pain for some reason.

    The only thing that has is Neurotin and Cymbalta.

    I do have a script for Lortab to take when my back pain is out of control, but when I take it, it helps my back but none of my fibro pain.
