I hope that this is the right forum to ask this question. I was a bit in a hurry so I couldn't make sure of it and possible previous responses.

When the response is binary, glimmix does a very good job giving odds ratios of about an interaction in a logistic regression model.

But when the response is ordinal, I get the following error

 ERROR: Least-squares means are not available for the multinomial distribution.

when I try a line like this

lsmeans treat*time / oddsratio ilink slicediff=time;


What can I do in such a situation to get the odds ratios in slices?

I have seen that slice or lsmestimate statements surprisingly work for such a purpose in a plm procedure after glimmix.
