This pain med is a lifesaver, but trying to get it is like pulling teeth. I have psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, sleep deprived, back surgerys, other types of arthritis, and am pretty much in pain constantly. Am also taking Morphine. I recently moved to North Dakota- a state where they don't believe in pain relievers!! What are you supposed to do?

I was on Hydrocodone before. It did it also. J ... Show Full Comment
