I have chronic back pain and just had surgery. It is excellent for the pain. The medication does wear off for me in about an hour/ hour and a half, but it is a good medication for the short term. I am very cautious because I know it is "very" addictive and hope to be done with it soon, when I have recovered.

I used this drug for 6 mo. in 2004. If I remember right I was taking 60 mg a day am/pm, after surgery for a herniated disc I knew I had to come off of it. I had asked the dr. and we started "weaning" off the med. I was able to come off of it on my own, sure it sucked for a couple days but you have to come off of it.

I've already become tolerant to the dose. Can't take too much because of liver issues though. I'm also on morphine, and take the oxy for breakthru pain, but it just doesn't work like it used to. Too many years on it I suppose. Doc won't give me 10mg pills instead of the 5mg. He doesn't know I have to take at least 40mg of the 5mg's to get any relief. I'm sure I' ... Show Full Comment
