  • Effectiveness
    None (for breakthrough pain)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: If you are still in a lot of pain after taking this, nor find one to be enough; perhaps bring it up to your doctor. Honestly, I need a larger dose, and more frequently. Unfortunately, most of the time, doctors aren't going to budge... Even if you have a legitimate need for it. People are allowed to suffer all too often. If my pain gets even worse, I rarely break down and take more. They don't understand a patient taking opiates develops a tolerance. (rendering the tiny dose less effective, or not effective at all).
