Need advice on how best to deal with pain

i am up to 150McG/hour of fentanyl. The 72 hour patches seem to work well for about 36. I experience breakthrough pain after 18 hours. This has gone on for 13 years now. At one point I was up to a gram of morphine a day. That did not touch my pain, and I was crazy from the combination of drugs and pain. Nobody will offer any hope. What the fuck am I supposed to do? i am 62, and would welcome death.

Hello,

You can consider drugs like oxycodone. In severe cases, additional drugs may be added. Consult a pain physician and he will direct you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
