Avatar f tn B6 I take 2 B6 a day to help with anxiety. Buspar This is supposed to help with anxiety, but I don't know if really does or not.

Enablex This med makes it so that I can go without needing to pee every fifteen minutes. Iron Supplement This is for anemia. Lexapro This is my main anti-depressant for bipolar disorder. Nexium This helps my acid reflux and ulcers.
Avatar f tn I can't do massages because the fibro pressure points are too painful to be touched. I've tried everything- countless medications, light exercise when I'm not bed ridden, smoking pot, change in my diet, hell I even allowed someone who was convinced I had demons to perform and exorcism. The point is I am open to anything- just preferably something not too expensive as I am out of work. Has anyone else been dealing with this? What do you do to help with the pain? Or to help stay positive.

You may want to sit down with your doctor or therapist and see about getting a blood panel done to determine if this is the case.
1826775 tn?1321636672 Not very well yet but i can walk, thank god. I got into a pain management clinic and they perscribed me 10mg oxycodone (percocet) and 10mg methadone. I am very concerned with the methadone as i have researched it and discovered the severity of the withdrawls. It seems that it is nearly impossible to get off without horrific detox symtoms. I have talked with the doctor at the pain clinic and expressed my concern, and he advised me to go from 30mg per day to 50mg per day!
96108 tn?1197694930 He should go back to the psychiatrist and ask for counsling as well as medications, and trial on other medications as well if depakote makes him too tired. He should be on top of this, and you should do what you can to convince him it is essential before he hurts someone, and regrets it the rest of his life.
Avatar n tn Hello, I've been on Wellbutrin XL 300mg (2mos) and prior to that, I was taking wellbutrin sr 100mg 1x/day (1.5 yrs). I take wellbutrin for depression and anxiety which I've suffered with since I was a teen-ager (I'm 33 yrs old) but only started treatment after the birth of my daughter who is now 2 1/2 yrs old. Wellbutrin works well with depression and anxiety but lately I'm very short tempered. I could be feeling great then something slightly annoying happens and I start to boil.
Avatar n tn Learning how to accept that fact, changing our lifestyles and adjust to life-long pain management and medications can be very challenging. It is often filled with frustrations and to some degree, disappointments. A key factor for chronic pain patients is locating a physician that you confidence in and makes you feel comfortable. One that will work with you to find that right combination of medications and correct dosage to best control and manage your pain and symptoms.

Avatar m tn My prescribing physician does not treat me with anti-anxiety medications. I do take diazepam once in a great while for severe muscle spasms as the usual "muscle relaxers" were not very effective for me. But that med is prescribed in addition to pain medications. It is not what I call a primary medication....just a "helping" one. The local clinics in my area are very reluctant to prescribe anxiety medications.

I have been in and out hospitals and they finally found medication that works the best for me. I am up cooking cleaning taking care of my son.
Avatar f tn I have been thru pain management many times. Each time, the narcotic medications initially work well, then I must increase the dose myself, due to what appears to be increasing tolerance of the drug. I have used the Fentynal Patch, which nearly killed me when my Dr. told me to wear one on each leg at the same time. I was then put on methadone. TI was told I could take methadone safetly for many many years.
2183581 tn?1369941147 I finally broke down and paid cash to see a pain management doctor in desperation hoping that he could help me get off the couch. It was a wonderful experience and well worth it he talk to me as if I was a human being not a drug seeker, and really listen to my problems. The outcome was a prescription for methadone I had severe anxiety about taking methadone because of the bad reputation that it has. Needless to say I took the perscription and got it filled and started taking the methadone.
Avatar f tn Hello, I want to add something, but this is NOT to be taken as "advice" or a recommendation! It's just something to think about. The response to your question (above, where Philnoir responded, "Finally, the fear of pain has been known to boost actual pain perception") got me thinking... I'm wondering if your surgeon may want to temporarily prescribe an anxiolytic as an adjuvent to your opiod therapy? As long as you don't take enough of it, or too long, to become addicted?
Avatar m tn and then went to prescribe my Lortab 10/500 plus some medicine called Baclofen 10 MG; which, from what I read is to help alcohalics stop drinking and its a anxiety medication (I have never been depressed.) So, this afternoon, I went ahead and contacted a Pain Management Center here in Las Vegas and schedualed a appointment for next Monday. What I want to know about Pain Management is as follows 1.
Avatar n tn I was interested in finding out more information on been hooked on pain medications. I discovered I am a drug addict. Please don't laugh. This website has been most informative. I have been taking loritabs on and off for years. I started taking them when I was at my mothers house for headaches. She'd give them to me freely. She was on 10's for back pain and the doctor would give her as many as she wanted. She would give me several and I would take 2 to 3 at a time.
Avatar n tn Are you feeling anxiety, shaking, trembling, etc? How about dizziness and lightheaded and stumbling all over the place? You stomach will feel like it's going to bring up lunch and you'll have sweats, too. But, that's really sporadic and will go away. It's the headache! UN - F -INGBELIEVABLE!! Excedrin does help take the edge off. See if you can get some valium, too. Will talk later and post on the other one too. I hate to hijack this thread - I know ours is full.
Avatar f tn Suboxone is prescribed for detox from various opiates. Most "Pain Management" docors prescribe opiates for "Chronic Pain" and if you run out of your pain meds and they are of an opiate type, you will get very ill from the withdraw of such meds. And Oxycodone is an opiate. As long as you are only using the Oxycodone and other prescribed meds, a drug test via blood and/or urine should not be of concern.
Avatar n tn I'm currently in pain management and am quite young (21 y/o) living with chronic pain. Two major car accidents, and one sports injury lead to 4 herniated/ruptured discs. I've had steriod and epidural injections (6 in last year), radio-frequency, and disectomy, and nameless other procedures. P/M put me in chiro after p/t ended. Currently on skelaxin and desiprimine for spasms and nerve damage however nothing for breakthrough pain.
Avatar n tn Getting medications to breech the blood brain barrier is challenging for Doctors. Obviously they know best about pain medications so you need to be honest and open with them including letting them know how much of each you are consuming. Anxiety can be a problem for post surgical patients and your statement regarding your cat should concern you personally. As a owner of numerous cats over the years your cat seems unusual.
Avatar f tn I was told to just wait till I see them to get any help with my pain now. They were giving me pain meds, and helping me with my anxiety, but now they will not treat me because they think I need pain mgt. I wish they would help me till I see the new doctor, but I have tried to call and leave messages, and they won't even call me back. They said that I was on too many meds, and they decided one day to cut me off.
Avatar f tn I have been seeing my pain management Dr. for almost 4 years. Was previously at the methadone clinic for 5 years before seeing my phsycian aka: Pain mgmnt. Anyhow I go bi-monthly in December they gave me a urine test. The only things I took was my Methadone which they prescribe me and 3-4 days back took a 30mg roxy and a 1mg xanex which is not prescribed to me. So took the oxy on Thursday & the Xanex on Friday or Saturday and my urine test at the pain management was the following Monday.
199177 tn?1490502134 Acupuncture also may be an acceptable alternative to or may be included as part of a comprehensive pain management program. Chiropractic Treatment and Massage Chiropractic treatment is the most common non-surgical treatment for back pain. Improvements of people undergoing chiropractic manipulations were noted in some trials. However, the treatments effectiveness in treating back and neck pain has not been supported by compelling evidence from the majority of clinical trials.
1168110 tn?1272685917 It has taken me 10 years to get my TSH level from 127. down to 16, all the while fighting to keep the hives at some sort of management. I have been struggling more to get it below 16 in the past 6 months, and it just stays at 16 - 17. Is there anyway I can lower this TSH with some kind of vitamin cocktail? In addition to needing the sinus surgery, I also need to get some surgery done to the thyroid, as the thyroid is grossly enlarged.
Cat What do you suggest people take for moderate anxiety? Do you try supplements or go straight to an antianxiety medication?
679393 tn?1226544772 I'm on 2 anti-depressants per day, 2 migraine meds per day and 2 if I feel one coming on, 2 sleep medications per day because I cannot sleep due to pain, a muscle relaxer and Percocet 10mg/325mg as needed (lately 2xdaily, 60 USED to ast me 4 months!) My latest pain Dr. said that she has no more answers. My new PC Dr. will not prescribe pain medication. I am ready to quit permanently because I cannot live this way. I have pain EVERYWHERE!
356518 tn?1322267242 I wish I knew the actual number or even an estimate of how many legitimate patients do without pain management because of the ones who lie and cheat to get medications to get high off of. I will bet the numbers are astounding!
Avatar f tn I am not comfortable telling any one how to taper off medications. This is a question that can only be answered safely by your physician. Withdrawal symptoms can be grueling and some times dangerous. Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn ) Pretend that you are the Pain Management Doctor. Put yourself in his shoes for a minute. 2.) Ever consider it to be a blessing that you may never be allowed Big Dog Hard Pill Drugs again? 3.) Go to a brand new doctor and say "You know what? Controlled substances and me just do not mix. Are there some safe, effective medications that you can prescribe that are NOT controlled substances?" You said "I have no quality of life without the meds." Is that really, really true?
