I am not abusing these pills!!!!" but I think the stigma attached to opiate pain relievers has really freaked the doctors out. I feel like because of the few doctors that over-prescribe, there are many that under-prescribe. Some days I am fine...I don't even need the calmoseptine and advil is fine. But, others, I need a vicodin, calmoseptine, a bath and a heating pad and I guess I don't see that there is anything wrong with that unless it becomes abuse.
However, I have heard realy good things about tramadol as well. My mom takes it for her various ailments, so my next step will be to ask about that as an alternative. I think that unless your doctor has experienced the burning, pain and discomfort themselves, they really have NO idea how awful it really is. Let us know what you and your doc decide!
