> Hi Anna. I can certainly say that I have been there with pain medication. That is what started it all for me as far as dependency is concerned. Why are you on pain killers? What are you taking? With me, it was Hydrocodone. (Lortab, Vicodin, Lorcet, etc.) Cough syrup too. (Codiclear DH, Protuss, etc.) It became a nasty habit that got so bad that I pretty much hit bottom. I have known for years that I have ADD, and I know that many people with ADD that do not recieve treatment, medicate themselves with substances. The pain killers actually helped me concentrate, like a stimulant. And they kept me awake, not drowsy. Anyway, I feel good about my treatment and my Ritalin medication which I have taken as prescribed. The Ritalin has helped with my cravings and, for the most part, eliminated my impulsiveness. I hope you find what you are looking for in terms of your happiness. You may need to continue to see doctors until you find what works for you. Good luck.

Hi SB, I.m on doloxene cos I have lyme disease, crohns disease and pancreatitis. Sounds like a lot but basically i just ache all the time and am too tired to do anything.The doloxene acts like a stimulant for me too. I was addicted to pethidine after a three month stay in hospital and when i came out they put me on physeptone(methadone) to help with the pain. Fortunately i got off that a year ago cos i do have a tendency to increase the dose to help with mood and energy.....The doloxene is a much less powerful narcotic.What do you mean the ritalin helps with your cravings?
bye, anna
