It's one thing to call the
doctor and have them prescribe a change in the
dosage or how often you take it over the
phone, but I think when you're looking to change to a new med, it's best to do that in person.
I'm sure you know all the different pain
medications that are used. Maybe you need to be on a long-acting medication and then have something for breakthrough pain
. There are so many different medications that you can use and so many different combinations.
