i was on and off of vicadon/flexeril/valium for major back pain since december, that was finally diagnosed as degenerative lumbar discs in sept, most likely a result of mctd. when the pain was severe i would end up at the er and was given diluid or moriphine by shot or iv. when the reason for the pain was discovered, i was given a tens unit and fentanyl. fentanyl 12mg - 72 hr patch was too strong and i gladly returned them. i was then prescribed percept and morphine 30mg. both seem to work ok. i dont get 'messed up' and the pain is not a noticable. i take the one morphine in the morning and if i need something in the afternoon, the one percept. i am a recovering alcoholic - 11yrs so i am vigil about taking drugs for anything other than pain relief. good luck and i hope you find the answers to your questions
