1686743 tn?1306009051 For the last year I have been taking15 mg Morphine2 times a day, and 5mg Oxycodone HCI For pain in back and hips, and knee. At this dosage I have been getting some relief.Could one say that I'm chemically dependent. I'm 6 ft tall and 172 lbs. What is the suggested dosage for 61 yr old? I just had surgery in my chest and the pain level is 10 by times 10. they increased the oxy to 10 mg every 4 hrs and the Morphine 3 times a day 30 mg a day. with little effect.
Avatar m tn Omg, I' m trying to stop using oxycodone this is day 2 of not using and i can't take feeling like this. I've been hooked for 2 yrs and can't stand the person i've become, lying, stealing, hurting myself and others that care about me. My whole body is shaking, Ihad sweats real bad last night, restless legs, chills all symptoms, feeling worse today what hell will I have to endure tonight. wish I never took one pill. Trying to be strong but about to break!
Avatar f tn I take 1 Oxycodone 4 times a day, and 2 Tylenol 3's 4 times a day. I do not think I have experienced and drowsiness on these medications, but definitely bursts of energy, and constipation, itchiness, and nausea, but thankfully no vomiting. I also take a muscle relaxer with those call flexeril (or something looks like a little yellow baseball homeplate) and that helps with the sleepiness a bit.
Avatar f tn to take for being sick, which helped. Then I was put on oxycodone 7-325 , plus muscle relaxer and nerve blocker. But am off all meds. now and went thru some awful withdrawls. I tried to get help with going off and was offered "methadone" and I choose to do it on my own. Not an easy task. After so long the pain meds. won't work, then what? Myself I am glad to be off them as there was alot of side effects. I started out on vicodin 500mg.
Avatar m tn And I would love any additional suggestions on how to deal with w/d symptoms besides just taking a hot shower and ibuprofen. I have a muscle relaxer...I guess I could take one of those and just sleep. What is my best way to go about doing this successfully?? I need this to be over so I can be a happy person again.
Avatar n tn I already took 10 mg of oxycodone and didnt realize the second meds I have is a muscle relaxer....should I wait for other stuff to wear off or can I take both together?
Avatar f tn I have tried to quit this cold turkey and it didn't work I dealt w the cold sweats and the shakes and being sick and the diaria or however u spell it but once the real pain hit in I try but u always fail... What can I do to help w these with drawls it's driving me crazy to be quite honest... I was gonna take tramadol once a night because I read it helps w the with drawls but I don't want to them go through tramadol withdrawls I wanna be drug free for good SOMEONE PLEADE HELP.
374225 tn?1269902862 ] --- I hurt my back again, not terribly (not a trip to the ER) but bad enough I wasn't moving at all for 4 days. A doc-in-the-box got my whole story that I had been taking oxycodone and soma and the normal stuff but hadn't taken it for about 8 weeks. He asked how my pain was and I said, "Worse". He said, "Stupid!" apparently you need to keep the pain at bay or it will cascade. Anyway...
Avatar n tn And the way the Oxycodone is for me is almost like a muscle relaxer/pain reliever/attitude adjustment lol. I have a very very stressful job and I normally take a 1/2 of pill a few hours into the day just because it kind of makes me focus and block out the stress of deadlines, meetings etc...
Avatar m tn That happened to me when I took a muscle relaxer. I felt like death. Drink fluids, take a warm bath and try to sleep it off. Stay away from the Oxyg!
Avatar f tn One of the medications she has been given is Toradol, and Norflex (a muscle relaxer) plus a lot of other medications that I can't remember. I just wanted to tell you that I had also heard of the rebound headaches and that the neurologist and the specialist hospital stated that narcotics are not good medications to use for migraine headaches. I hope you all feel much better!
Avatar f tn I also have a crap ton of vitamins, melatonin, tums, and a weak muscle relaxer. I've looked into going to a sub clinic, but it's just not a financial possibility right now...I had to leave my job about a month ago when my mom had two heart attacks, which forced her to have a minor heart surgery, and she needed extra help. So I have no medical coverage right now, and as she's physically disabled, after rent and bills we've got about $100 to last us the entire month.
Avatar f tn Hoping to just quit the opiates with the muscle relaxers, chlonidine, ambien, vitamins and eating healthy). 3. Will the muscle relaxer help with that spine-clench thing that makes me want to snuff it every time it happens? I don't want to be on any meds anymore once this is over. The chlonidine and Xanax really help with the anxiety, my heart rate and bp (they've been sky high through all of this even though I'm young and generally healthy). But, I don't want to take the Xanax anymore.
Avatar f tn Also ibuprofen, melatonin and tizanidine (mild muscle relaxer) for sleep. All drugs I mentioned are prescription only except ibuprofen but they are NON HABIT FORMING and you will not develop tolerance/addiction to them (this according to my doc.) They work great! You should have no problem getting these scripts either. Good luck.
Avatar f tn If it's just pure oxycodone, then chances are it's not you, the brand name percocet MIGHT make you feel better than the pure oxycodone, because, as my doctor explained it to me, the APAP acts as a catalyst and it can boost the efficacy of the oxycodone by almost 50% in some cases. In other words, if you take one percocet (with the tylenol built in) you might need one and a half or even two of the pills without the tylenol in them to get the same result with regard to pain control.
Avatar m tn jerry, i cant wait til i get to day 34. i am almost thru day 8 and physically i feel great. no more rls, muscle ached, diarrhea and i am sleeping better. takes me a couple hours to fall asleep but the past few night have been good. I do hate waking up because i still have that morning craving the minute i wake up. its weird i almost wake up and pop right out of bed...heart racing. just a weird feel i hope will go away soon.
Avatar f tn So he takes 6-8 10mg/325mg of oxycodone a day, 1-2 10mg of cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer) a day, 1-2 ambien at nights and now the dr just added 2 10mg of methadone a day. By night he is slurring his speech, falling asleep. I am so angry about all these pills. He ends up buying oxy off the street because he runs out of his prescription before the time to refill. Is he being overdosed? He is very defensive when I try talking to him about this. That's his addiction.
Avatar m tn I went to PT, was on muscle relaxer Robaxin and Ultram and then Percocet for pain. Muscle spasms is what it felt like, constant on the lower right side L5-S1 area, above buttocks. Had an MRI in December, found herniated discs and bulging discs sitting on nerve roots. First appt. had me take a urine test and spoke with doc, he also had to review my MRI. I had a steroid shot in lower L4-L5 area, didn't help. He put me on Cymbalta in Feb.
Avatar n tn Maybe you need a muscle relaxer for sleeping. Or something that people take for periodic limb movements. Is a jaw considered a limb-not sure. Good luck with your problems.
527890 tn?1263786727 She stated that she has never dealt with an HIV+ person, POSSIBLY misdiagnosed with RA/AS, and she is going to have to research. I am hoping there is someone out there like me. My med list includes Soma (muscle relaxer), Ambien & Temazepam (alternated nightly for sleep), Lomotil (chronic diarrhea), Viramune & Truvada (HIV meds), Marinol (appetite), Valium (stress from the pain), and Percocet (started for peripheral neuropathy).
Avatar f tn I wanted to post something on the topic as I am a Chronic Pain patient who has become pregnant. I'm currently in my 23rd week of the pregnancy and am having trouble finding a Pain Management Provider who will see a pregnant woman, or a high-risk OB who will treat Chronic Pain. I have been told that Maternal-Fetal Medicine Speicalists will provide pain relief for pregnant chronic pain patients, however I been told that mine will not.
Avatar n tn I have been on medication for the past 3 years too - Hydrocodone and a muscle relaxer. I researched on line to see how the drug(s) could affect a baby - however didn't find much information to satisfy any detail questions I had. There sure is a lack of information about the topic! I saw my Doctor for the first time on Monday- My first "real" appointment as a prego! (9 weeks / due Sept 11th) I had asked the Nurst pract..
Avatar n tn I went to pain management and they gave me oxycodone and those did not seem to even work. As I sit here I haven’t had one pill within 24 hrs and it’s hard. See I want off them, but I want something to take the pain away, which the 10/325 doesn’t even touch, the pain. I am only 35, tomorrow is my birthday and I want to eventually get my life back, be me, and take control again.
1272082 tn?1343107140 I'm using Tramadol with a Bentyl. Tramadol is for pain and Bentyl is a muscle relaxer. The combination seems to be helping the POTS too. My pulse rate is staying somewhat normal and I'm hardly having the high tachy. I'm down to using them only twice a day. My foot is healing. It's not as painful as it was. I'm starting to move it a little and put a little weight on it on a bath scale.
Avatar n tn My dr rx'd phenobarbitol (which is for seizures), Valium (for the anxiety), Bentyl (for the stomach cramps), a muscle relaxer (for the leg cramps, Ativan (for break through anxiety), and a multi vitamin and magnesium. I was there 5 days. I left on Friday. And to be completely honest, I thought I was ready to go. I thought I had gone through the worst of it. I was wrong. Now I find myself detoxing still at home. I have horrible diahrea and nausea and stomach cramps.
Avatar f tn I have lightening bolts going through my feet daily, I have pain in my legs daily, I have pain in my head daily but that is due to the paratrigeminal neuralgia which I have been told is not related to MS period. I am currently on Oxycodone and I hate it and I am going to try to leave a message with the stupid receptionists at my stupid doctors office and she might call me back if she can figure out how to use a telephone...odds are against it...
Avatar f tn It has been going on now for a month and a half. Went to gyno and she said it was because I had uterine fibroids and one very large rear fibroid. She gave me a muscle relaxer/anti inflammatory prescription med, some no estrogen birth control, pain meds, and told me to use heating pads, keep legs raised, and pain should go away. It did not go away stayed the same and got worse depending on the day.
Avatar f tn I went to my suboxone doctor and he did a cortisone shot, trigger shots, mri, and prescribe a muscle relaxer. The muscle relaxer helped a bit, but the no amount of NSAIDs or suboxone seem to help with the amount of pain I was having. The same doctor urged me to start Percocet which I declined for a few weeks until I couldn't take it any more, so I gave in. The Percocet barely helped with keeping the withdrawl away at 10mg 4x a day. Plus, the longest it seems to work is 1-2hours.
Avatar n tn I know there are other medications you can take for your RLS, like the quinine or zanaflex one of the best of all muscle relaxer prescribed for RLS and cramps. It is usually prescribed for patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis or spinal injures resulting in paraplegic. These patients truly suffer from terrible problems with cramps and RLS and spastic muscle movement. I telling you I believe your problem to be an out of control addiction to Vicodin.
Avatar f tn I need medicine to get me through the day. I take soma a muscle relaxer 350mg. 1/2 a tablet and zydone7.5 with tylenol400mg. 1/2 a tablet as late in the day as I can. When I say late I mean I wake up lately with a headache that would put anyone without FM down for the count. I take a hot shower and stretch the most I can in the shower and that helps with it. I go as long as I can. I drive where I have to go.
