You share a frustration so many of us struggle with.
Start with percocet.
Stay there for a few weeks.
Increase dose and frequency.
Ride the slow climb up, up, up …
Then dive for the bottom
Where, after four months
They decide you are becoming addicted
And it’s time to drop the med.
That’s ok – there are others – long acting ones
Morphine — allergic
Fentanyl — allergic
honestly there’s a couple others I can’t remember …
New slope – opana (oxymorphone)
Start this next weekend.
Hopefully I can exit this ride with this latest med…
I’m running low on the percocet.
