Suffering with kidney disease, taking oxycodone, methadone. Any different combo of narcotics that will help?

I am sufferring from kidney disease and take a large amount of pain meds. Currently I am taking 3 30 mg. oxycodone tablets every 4 hours and 4 10 mg. methadone tablets 4 times a day. Is there a different combo of narcotics that will help as well with the pain only with less pills? I am also allergic to all kinds of anti inflamatories.

I feel you may have got habituated to Narcotic based pain-killers.
You have not mentioned the nature of kidney disease & cause of pain.
However, I strongly suggest that you switch over to Tramodol-Paracetamol combination for pain & mention all the details about your kidney disease & details about the pain.
