I've been taking Percocet 10/325 three times a day, and it's just not working as well as it has been (I've been taking it for about. 4 years now). I don't know what to do, go to longer acting products or maybe just see if she will up my dose to every 6 hours. I've been trying to make it work for the last 1-2 years because I hesitate to ask for more medication even though she is a pain Dr. I don't want to look like some addict, but I'm doing less and less stuff every week. I've got scoliosis in my mid to lower back, fibromyalgia, severe arthritis (especially in my back but also now in both hip joints making walking more than 2 blocks impossible. I take the maximum dose of ibuprofen every day, but now it's starting to affect my kidneys, so I've got to back off some. I take antidepressants from a psychiatrist, which don't work well with like the main drugs for fibromyalgia plus others. My life is pretty miserable at this time from my pain and hopefully I've got a few more years to live, but I need help with my pain or life isn't much of one! Any suggestions?
