I had my doctor's appointment yesterday and talked to her about the fact that increasing amounts of lortab are still not seeming to touch the pain I'm in and that I don't feel like they are the answer to my fibro pain, but that getting off them has been hard to do also. She prescribed me clonidine to take while I taper off over the next 2-3 weeks. I have been taking 4 10's a day, and yesterday I was able to take 3 10's and 2 clonidine without much distress. I will try to stay at 3 for a few days and then take it down to 2 1/2. I am grateful to you for showing me it is possible to take matters into our own hands when medications aren't working for us any longer, even when it seems impossible to get off of them! I should add that I have been having some pain relief from gabapentin but also weight gain, so she added topamax to the gabapentin (which will give me a higher dosage of nerve pain relief but keep the weight gain down--maybe even give me weight loss), so I'm still working on getting pain relief, I'm not just giving up on pain relief all together.
