Hey guys! I love this site, this is my first post
seeing as most "SWIMS" who are into pharms best connect is there doctors.... My question is:
What are "SWYM" prescribed per month?
How is "SWYM" prescribed to take them?
How quickly does "SWYM" go through them?
What would "SWYM" prefer to be prescribed if the choice were up to them?
SWIM doesn't IV the meds are usually insulfated or swallowed....
Here is what SWIM gets per month:
15 duragesic patches 50mcg/hr : about 10 are used for maintenance so they last the whole month, the other 5 go in about 3 day
200 5 mg Oxy IR's : these last about 10 days , the script is for 1 or 2 pills as needed for pain.
60 Soma 350mg each : these SWIM is not crazy about, they are decent potentiators when I'm in the mood, they last about 20 days. The script says up to 2 pills per day as needed for spams
90 Klonopin .5 mgs : these are taken occasionally with a beer or two when the Oxy is gone. They last all month. The script says 1 pill 3 times daily.
60 Xanax .25 mgs : about the same as the K-pins
If Swim had it his way he'd get OC's 80's for a long acting med and Roxi 15mgs for break through pain.
By the way I am a Chronic pain sufferer. I have two herniated discs T-5 and T-6 with a small herniation at L-5. I also have degenerative disc disease.
So how do others compare for monthly meds?
