im in the middle of the worst flare I've ever had. Been overwhelmingly painful for about a week now. On enbrel methotrexate and prednisone. Was taking hydrocodone 5mg but yesterday pain doctor changed to oxycodone 7.5. He said my sedimentation rate and inflammation was out of control. I'm not too good at taking all of pain Meds in a day that I'm supposed to. Guess have fear that next day could be worse. Any suggestions other than take the amount in a day he prescribed. I've been breaking the pain med in half and trying to take smaller dose every 4hrs instead of taking a whole pill then waiting 8 hrs. Told me I could try methadone along w the oxy until everything calmed down. Also my rheumatologist is changing from enbrel to ???. Unfortunately she wants to wait until next appointment in a month. Any recommendations for a biologic ?
