Hi, Dr. Ashori here to help you. Give me a moment to read your question and I will reply to you shortly.
Because it's a short-acting opioid the doctors are unlikely to write it due to the pressure from the government to prevent addiction from such medications.
They are more likely to give you morphine which is longer acting or methadone. The latter is harder to get off of so morphine is safer and does a great job for pain control.
