Does anyones dr believe in long acting narcotics? Mine currently believes that narcotics do not work. however he gives me Lortab for flare only which has only been once. He keeps me on tramadol and darvocet, rotating every 3 hours and I feel like pain killers ARE a food group. I take 2 of one, 3 hours later 2 of the other. Why in the world can I not get something longer acting like vicodin or oxy ... something Id only take 2-3 times a day? Im in NC. Anyone with any advice on a dr that believes in scripting stronger narcotics would be of great help. Im getting sick of eating meds every 3 hours. Especially ones that dont hardly touch my pain. Thanks for any help! Should I take the plunge and go to a pain clinic? Would anyone like to share their experiences with pain clinics and what they prescribe?
