So about five years ago, my monkey Albert was building a deck on the back of my house when he fell on his back. Bruised up some ribs and stuff pretty good but nothing broken. For the next few years he would have pretty nasty spasms about every four months in which he would get a short script for Percocets or a cortizone injection. Both worked fine.
6 months ago, Albert was rear ended in an auto accident that seriously aggrivated the old injury to the point of being chronic. Worst days he would have to take 6 or 7 percocets...good days only a couple. But last month, Al's doc
told him last month that he was going to refer him to a pain-management center.
I took Albert there this morning where he was told by the docs that they were going to switch him to Saboxine for the relief of pain. Anytime that Albert has ran out of Percocet, he has only experienced pain. No sickness, vomiting, sweats...nothing but just pain.
After doing much research, Al can't seem to find much about the drug
being used for pain relief...just withdraw from the Percs.
So...is Al being duped by the docs 'cause they just think he's addicted or is Saboxine truely usefull for the relief of pain?
