Skelaxin opiate

Common Questions and Answers about Skelaxin opiate


I called a million places and found a doc that prescribed Suboxone (an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> blocker that helps with cravings and withdrawals). I saw him, he was supportive and i was on the road to recovery. 2 problems: I didn't get any counseling in addition to the drug therapy and than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> new doc prescribed Fiorcet for my migraines. Those made me feel great, energized, etc. Uh-oh. Also, he wrote han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> rx's on a regular piece of paper that was printed out, no different than a printer you'd have at home.
Hi there... It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> very common for most Drs. to move their patients from a short acting medication to a long acting one when they move from the "acute" pain phase...which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> up to three months to the "chronic" pain phase, which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> thereafter. I'm confused on why you wouldn't do well on Oxycontin if you do well on Percocet. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> the exact same Opiate. Oxycodone. The only difference an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> that it lasts longer. Obviously the Percocet has Acetaminophen in it..
I've been on several different muscle relaxers including Skelaxin and Flexeril. Skelaxin did not help me at all but Flexeril did. The Flexeril worked great for many years until it stopped and I had to switch to a new med and that's when my Dr put me on the Soma. The Soma does work great but I struggle to keep it under control.
After many failed therapies and medicines such as Tramadol, Diclofenac, most NSAIDs, anti-depressants (Cymbalta, Zoloft), Lyrica, steroid injections (Kenalog, Depo Medrol), and Skelaxin, I believe it's time to see a pain specialan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>t, someone who know what they're talking about when it comes to pain. I tried some of my left over hydrocodone from my wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>dom teeth extraction, and its the only thing that has helped, and I didn't notice any bad side effects like many people say.
I have found through taking many different meds for my back that zanaflex worked really well...I have used skelaxin but never helped...BUT everyone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> different.... I am so glad u were pain free all night...Back pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> the worst!!! Hope an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> gets better!
I can't imagine someone being moved from only taking Hydrocodone which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> low on the totem pole of medications all the way to something like the Fentanyl patch which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> one of the strongest medications out there. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> ONLY for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> tolerant paitents... You have plenty of other medication choices to move to and see if than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> helps.
Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> way you do not keep having to tirate up your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> medication and keep the tolerance at a low level. I haven't had to change my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> dosing in over 3 years. Also, there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> so much more to chronic pain management than just medications... There an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> daily exercan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>e, yoga/stretching, physical therapy (easy to learn and do at home), massage, acupuncture, TENS unit (found used online), ice, heat, biofeedback, counseling, injections, steroids, nerve ablation, etc.
I haven't heard of the majority of what an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> being tested for so I'm curious as to what shows up. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> only morphine and heroin? Or would other things such as Oxycodone show up? On the website of the lab I use, it states only those two - that's why I'm asking! I've never been to pain management before, I just didn't know if than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> was a standard test or if they are searching out specific drugs etc. Does Quest Diagnostics automatically test for things such as Oxycodone, for example?
I just can't believe that 3 months after my last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> that I'm still having than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> one withdrawal symptom, which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> constantly getting more severe in occurrence and intensity. Obviously the MRI's next week will tell more, but I can't stand the constant muscle contractions, especially when I lay down to go to sleep at night. I'm dying for any answers as to a potential cause. Nothing make any sense.
Here's the Thomas recipe - I think I stole than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> from Vicaddict's last post on the subject: "1.

Or, many times there can be some lingering nerve pain but than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> best helped by actual nerve pain medication. an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> (like the Norco) an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> not really meant for that type of pain. Nerve pain meds are Neurontin, Lyrica, or Cymbalta. There are also muscle relaxers to take as needed that can be helpful. These are Flexeril or Amrix, Robaxin, Skelaxin, Baclofen, or Zanaflex... The key an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> making sure you are open to any/all pain relief methods and not just stating that you need an Opiate.

How do you suggest that I deal with my chronic pain? I've been prescribed Skelaxin 100mg/4x (as needed) and I haven't taken more than 50mg (breaking one in half) at a time...and not daily....I'm wondering if taking one here and there will help with my weaning process and there after. I refuse to take them daily because I'm not trying to trade one addiction for another.. any suggestions would be appreciated....If more info an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> needed, please let me know....
Just FYI but "Dr. shopping" an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> only when a person an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> getting Opiate or controlled substances from more than one Dr.. Everyone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> allowed to go and get other opinions or go see another Dr. and just TALK to them about what their treatment would be and whether they would be a better match.. What you can't do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> be getting Opiates from your current Dr. and they still be active and then accept more from a new Dr. without terminating your care in writing to the previous Dr.

Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> a recipe for at-home self-detox from Opiates based on my experience as well as that of many other addicts.

Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> the hardest for me because it constantly reminds me that I could relieve the pain with an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span>. However, I do not have any vicodins at my dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>posal. I had about 10 left when I stopped using and had Mike hold them--then I had him get rid of them so I wouldn't constantly think about it. My doctor would call me in some in a minute, but I am still committed to seeing than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> through. The forum helps a lot--but it's still hard.
Never took the stuff again. Skelaxin an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> a muscle relaxer that was the least sedating for me. It also did not seem to do anything for me, so again, I stopped taking any muscle relaxers. If you need the sedating effect to help you sleep, I found that flexeril did a great job for putting me to sleep. Just be careful because it also has a hangover effect for some people the next day, kind of like Benadryl. Have you told your doctors that the meds are not helping your pain?
I'm also supposed to be taking Skelaxin muscle relaxer 2x daily and Napraxon 2x daily. I get very sick from the Napraxon and previous to that took Nabatone (think I'm spelling these all wrong, sorry) I know I need an anti-imflam. , but they all make me nauseous. I am very all natural, I hate having than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> injury. I feel like I've had the flu for 6 months!! I took maybe one pain reliever , once a yr. before all than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>. My tummy an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> just not happy w/ these meds.
I took Soma which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> like Skelaxin to help the first two days with that. I know you said the Skelaxin did not help you much with that. Maybe you could try taking some Tylenol PM at night to help you sleep?? If you do decide to do than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>, don't take the Tylenol PM with any other sedatives you might have such as the muscle relaxer. Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> can depress your respiratory system too much and that would not be good. Sorry, I know I am rambling on!!! The nurse part of me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> coming out!!!
I had skelaxin as well and tried it but it made me a little nauseous. It did help with the aches. Good luck. I know you can do than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>!
Most sub doctors wont prescribe sub for tram becuase its not considered an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> but it does not hurt to call around your local area and ask you may find one that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> very knowledgeable about addiction that will help.
I truly think that not enough an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> know about Ultram yet. Just from hearing stories hear, I'd say it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> very addictive for some. I get hooked on Opiates just by looking at them, but had a total different reaction to Ultram. It made me shaky and I lost my appetite. I did not get a buzz at all. I had no problems when I quit taking it. But I did have a seizure on it that was attributed to the Ultram - and I wasn't abusing it.
Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> indeed an addictive drug. It's not an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> and for that reason it's somewhat overlooked as a serious drug but it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>. If your gf an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> slurring her words and passing out, she's on too high a dose. and of course, getting scripts early or getting them from multiple sources are classic signs of addiction. It's great she has you in her life. You should definitely encourage her to seek help or even just her prescribing doctor.

There are other things you can take and treatments you can get that might help. You know if you take an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> now, than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> soon after WD, you are going to ran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>k going through WD again. YUCK! : ( I am proud of you. Keep hanging in there! You're doing great!!!
and a muscle relaxer like Flexeril, Robaxin, Skelaxin, or Baclofen. an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> not very good at those types of pain so most people are on these types of meds in addition to any Opiate they are prescribed. May I ask what your pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>sue an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan>? I have had 3, two-level, cervical fusions and still have severe herniations in my upper thoracic as well as lumbar region.
It contains an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> so use it! (The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Opiate</span> does not cross the blood/brain barrier but really works for withdrawl symptoms.) Drink plenty of water and gatorade. Nyquil without the decongestant works for a lot of people. Take it at bedtime with Melatonin 3 caps to start. Keep posting here as to how you're doing. The forum never sleeps...

As an up-date, I have been taking a muscle relaxer called, Skelaxin that my doctor prescribed to me. It seems to help when the pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Isan> severe.
