Advice & Tips:
This medication was started for the pain from both my knees and back of which are from an injury from the US Military. I refused to take narcotics for many years because I am an alcoholic and the chance of abusing this type of drug were strong. And yes it did not take to long for me to abuse the drug, just like I knew I would. Amazing but I did it anyhow, but after the abuse I felt so guilty that had to do something and I had to do it fast or I was going to head down a path of no return. Well I shared my abuse with the extremely nice friends on Patiencelikeme, and that is where I got the feed back and non-judgemental responses that I needed. So I immediately stopped the abuse and after a week or so went back to taking the medication as prescribed by my doctors. I know the chances and what the affects can be should I abuse the medication again. But I also know that I have people to talk to should I have any desire to do so. So thanks to you all for the positive feedback, and I did not receive a negative response and I will go forward as I need. There is no longer a need to suffer if I am in pain and can rely on doctors and friends for the relief I need. Love You All Tom F.
