I have been suffering from chronic pudendal nerve pain for over 10 years. I've been to the pain clinic, seen various specialists, etc. I was put on norspan and fentenyl patch and whilst on these medications, I was also taking Endone 4 times a day. The morphine levels reached to 200 mg daily and it came to the point where I couldn't function mentally and physically anymore. I decided to go to detox. The detox was my personal choice, also a suggestion from the Doctors. I got detoxed and wow...I didn't need medication for nearly 2 years. All of a sudden, I had a number 10 pain 24/7. I couldn't cope and went back to my GP. I also walk every day as my personal physiotherapy regime. My Doctor was upset that I needed to take strong opiates again, but hey....we're only human and not robots. I'm currently on Endone 5mg once/twice daily, panadeine forte and Palexia SR 50mg. Unfortunately, I don't get good results from the Palexia SR. I was prescribed the Palexia 50mg IR (immediate release) and this gave me up to 2 hours of pain free relief. Palexia SR is not affective for me and I will need to go back to the immdiate release. I find Endone is very good for me, although I'm very careful not to take more than 2 tablets a day.
