Pain relief medications

Common Questions and Answers about Pain relief medications


662727 tn?1225053347 I think I will talk to my doctor and see if there is an alternative medication to control the pain and discuss withdrawal with him. I know there are medications that can help with that. I know I couldn't go cold turkey. My previous doctor said I would just have to find the right level of pain control versus side affects and offered no alternatives. But I have a new doctor who may be more helpful as the pain is getting worse and the tablets less effective.
Avatar n tn As you know Meloxicam (Common Brand Name, Mobic) and Ibuprofen are NSAIDs. Each can be effective in reducing pain and inflammation. As with all medications, their effectiveness often depends on an individual's reaction (metabolism). That being said I have found some research on the two which actually indicates that Ibuprofen is lightly more effective for most ppl. There may be conflicting research/studies - I can't locate it.
329994 tn?1301663248 I was prescribed Butrans patches to take with oxycodone IR for long term pain management on top of all of the other bladder medications, antidepressants, and other meds and It was a miracle in itself. It helps dramatically, just leaves a rash on my skin due to a adhesive allergy i have, but DEF go for Butrans.
Avatar m tn This is an option but not necessary as there are other pain medications you can use to control your pain. There are alot of CP patients that do go off of their medications for a period of time so they will work better when they begin taking them again but as I said this is not something you need to do but of course you can. If you do this your pain will be worse as the pain is not being controlled any at that point.

Avatar f tn What is the best pain relief to take when you have Hep C ? I am not on treatment at this time and i have chronic back problems as well as the pains and fatigue associated with the virus.
Avatar n tn Check with a pharmacist, but I think Tramadol pain relief is = to the pain relief of a similar dose of codeine.
Avatar f tn Has anybody heard of methocarbamol 750mg 2x per day for pain? I was taking something else nub*****tone anybody? when i went to refill the nu*******tone they gave me methocarbamol said the doctor changed it.

Avatar n tn hr pain patch for 3 years now, one patch every 48 hours instead of 72 because they only provide me with 48 hours of good pain relief, along with Percocet 10/325 for breakthrough pain for some serious spinal issues. herniated disc, disc fragment impressing upon and displacing the S-1 Nerve root, thoracic herniation at the T-8 and T-9 Level, along with neckpain. I also been diagnosed with multi-level DDD. My question is, my Dr.
Avatar n tn Hi, Take some OTC pain relief medications for the pain. You need to see your doctor or breast specialist at the earliest. Go to the ER if the pain is too much and does not respond to warm compresses and local application of analgesic creams and OTC pain relief medications. Let us know if you have any doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing and what your doctor has advised. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Avatar n tn This may cause overdose depending on your body stature and weight. Overdosing of narcotic pain medications can be serious. Please consult your pain medication doctor or go to ER for pain relief. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar f tn Anyone have luck with other pain medications other than Percoset for nerve pain?
Avatar f tn You can have a GP put you on these medications with out a diagnosis. Narcotics do not work as well on MS pain. My MS specialist sent me to a pain clinic.
1855076 tn?1337115303 I have a hard time remembering what each medicine is, generic name versus brand names. I'm once again having a hard time controlling the pain. I have come down to a very small dose and I haven't been using anything long acting. My goal was to see if I could manage on nothing or very little and it's very clear that my quality of life is nonexistent on such a low dose. I'm taking oxycodone 10 mg. every 4 hours. I essentially get about an hour to 1.
Avatar f tn Currently I am on Neurontin 1200 mg a day, Soma 300 mg a day, Midrin prn for the really bad headaches and Lortab at night for pain. I do not like to take meds and honestly these don't take the pain completely away. I haven't had surgery yet, still seeking out opinions. I have been through 2 rounds of PT, but this was before I knew I had Chiari. The first round was hurtful to me as they did mechanical traction and made my symptoms worse.
Avatar n tn However, persistent or recurring cases are likely to require treatment which depends on the type and severity of the infection. Over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen or paracetamol may help. Oral antibiotic may also be prescribed to prevent infection. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I'm breast feeding my 1.5 month old and need to know what pain relief is safe while BF. I've been having terrible back spasms and am at the end of my rope. Tylenol does nothing for this pain! Anyone have any suggestions?
Avatar n tn over the years i guess i have developed a high tolerance to pain meds nothing helps. i do not like taking RX pain meds due to i have 2 very active childern and i dont want to miss a minute of there lives. i do not sleep at night because when i roll over and lay on my arm i wake up hurting. am i'm the only one that has this issue? is there others like me? how do they cope? is there any relief?
Avatar n tn The plain truth of the matter is, NO good pain management doctor is just going to prescribe pain meds for anyone without first doing a series of tests and evaluations to see what their problem is.
Plant I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of pain relief I could take with sertraline(zoloft) and Bupropion XL(Wellbutrin XL). Thank you.
Avatar n tn I saw my primary care physician on Wednesday and got some surprising news. Ladies look into all the medications that you are currently taking. I too was experiencing pain in my arms, shoulders and legs that felt as if I had been working out for days. When I spoke to my doctor about this he told me that the medicine I was taking for my Cholesterol, Lipitor, was known for muscle pain. Great to know I spent $70 plus each month to make myself hurt a little more.
Avatar f tn I have been on several medications trying to keep these symptoms in check ... prozac, buspar, elavil, topamax, Trileptal, and I've had immune globulin IV treatments. The last three meds worked for a while, but not anymore. Steroids cause hysteria in me. Since stress is a trigger (during a flare up) my neurologist wants to try buspar. Have not done that yet. My sister is completely bedridden with polyneuropathy. When this gets bad, even my clothes irritate my body and I shake.
Avatar f tn I hope everyone had a great holiday. Ours was wonderful. I am also feeling a lot better. I have been switched to Oxycontin 10mg. These seem to be helping a great deal. Yesterday, I went ALL DAY and didn't have to take anything in addition to keep the pain under control. My Dr told me to take the percocet for breakthrough pain and I am still taking Lyrica 150mg three times a day.
370181 tn?1595629445 Hi there, It sounds to me like you need to find another doctor or a pain management clinic who will work with you on finding the best pain relief options, including careful use of opioids. It seems to me you've exhausted all other options and your research is solid. If it were me, I would "fire" the doctor who refuses to treat you as a partner in your own treatment.
Avatar f tn NO! Dogs can't metabolize ibuprofen (advil). You can give him tylenol for a short time, but he will be much better off with an anti-inflammatory from your vet. I had two dogs that ended up with severe arthritis. The first took rimadyl daily for 5 of his 13.5 years due to hip displaysia. The last couple of years we switched to deramaxx when the symptoms got more severe. BIG difference with the deramaxx, but it's more expensive.
Avatar f tn My problem was that the tension in the small muscles of the neck and head, the massiter muscles, suboccipitals, etc., became so tight that, not only did I have pain in my upper back and neck, but I also had these pounding headaches. The first 6 or 7 discs of my vertabre were out of alignment as well. Over several months Iwe did traction, (which helped aLOT), and my PT would massage the small muscles that were causing such major pain.
