Taking Hydrocodone Neuropathy


Hello, I take hydrocodone 5/325 for L3,4,5, disc pain and CIPN. It is not doing well for me. I was bumped up from 600mg of Neurontin to 800mg 2 months ago. All of March I was in constant pain, in the balls of my feet especially. I am wondering if the Hydrocodone needs to be increased since the neurontin/hydrcodone doses together aren't working. I will not see pain management doc again til May, any advice is very appreciated. Thanx :)

Can you call them to explain the issue and see if you can get a sooner appointment?

It's hard to say which one might need to be increased, or changed. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, constipation, mood swings, and weight changes.

Are you on any other medications?
