After years of living with this injury, I eventually broke down after multiple kidney infections and started to utilize opiates maintain function. I've been able to categorize my 7 different types of pain.
I need to find an alternative to the mentioned medication due to the risk of theft. My primary care physician will not write prior authorizations - despite multiple requests.
Does anyone have a list of similar medications that do not have the same stigma or street value ( I've had to fire helpers) ?
Hydromorphone ( I found this to affect my breathing ? so it's off my list)
Fentanyl (patch was not effective and produced serious cognitive side effects)
Thoughts when able?
