There are many long release pain medications on the market that will help you. You need to ask your Dr about your options and go from there. There are many different strengths and kinds to choose from and your Dr will know which one may be right for you. Good luck:)

Hi Hightolorance,

I agree with Sandee1818. I notice you post began with "hi doctor." You have posted on the pain management forum and not a location where physicians will read your posts. It is my "guess" that a physician would answer much the way sandee1818 did.

I wish you the best and hope you are able to see you physician soon to obtain a medication that will offer you better pain control. Please feel free to post again and take care. Tuck

Hello and welcome. Do you have a Pain Specialist? If so, I would recommend using a Fentanyl Patch. It is designed for ppl like you with need for around the clock pain control. It also is a very strong medication and you will not need as much. I was using pain pills and they were wearing off before the next dose was due. After switching to the Fentanyl that all stopped. I am now comfortable with my pain control. Good luck.
