here are some ideas on handling side effects of pain meds and some stuff I do to relieve pain other than just pills. You might find some of this helpful but I have questions too about pain management I hope someone can answer. I’m up against it. And the CDC is tightening up again. Friggin alcohol kills more people. No one is addressing the pain problem driving people to the pills in the first place.
Don’t get wrong idea…I’m on anti-inflammatory diet, alkalizing supplements, do pilates class, pilates at home on the mat, drink tons of water, get other types of exercise, use the non narcotic pain patch and anti inflammatory alcohol based tonic called Pennsaid before laying down on a bag of ice.
HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS…DOES ANYONE KNOW?
I’d like to change to suboxone because the big secret is that it works for more than just opiate cessation, it helps the pain. The bioavailability is such that you can get by on really really low doses. lower doses than a transfer chart would suggest!!!!! But doctors are limited to only having 100 pain patients on Suboxone. WHY? Does anyone know?
I read yesterday that Obama is pushing to raise that limit to 200 per doctor to deal with the heroin epidemic and pain pill problem.
Can anyone answer some of these questions for me or offer insight into suboxone for pain management? If they cut me off, I’ll have to visit Mexico and Cuba after all. Even though Cuba will be open for cruise voyages on May 1, I wasn’t planning on going because I already live at the beach and drive an old car. hehe
