Diskettes are only: to be used in drug treatment programs, not for the treatment of pain. In programs, the diskette is generally dissolved in water, in part to assure that you are taking your entire dose under observation and not "cheeking" or "lipping" the dose to use later or divert to others. They are not supposed to be prescribed for pain patients. If this is prescribed, talk to MD; if not, STOP & get help.
