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 suffer chronic pain from PHN (post herpetic neuralgia), Fibromyalgia, SLE,and Arthritis. Started out on very low dosage and over time the dosage has been increased to 20mg ER with 7.50/750 Vicodin generic for breakthrough pain. It works very well for me. My problem is the cost!
