Best medications you have had?

May 29, 2017 4:53 PM

What are some of the best pain medications you have tried? My favourite for fibro and restless leg syndrome is oxycodone however my new doctor will only prescribe me hydrocodone 10mg. I also enjoy the steroid injections (cortisone??) that won't even last about a week-- but they are amazing!! Sucks you can't get them more often.

dilaudid By IV. So sweet. But not fast injection. If done fast it burns like fire in your veins.

My trio of Oxycodone Gabapentin and Tizanidine work well but wear off fast. There's about a 3 hr window where I feel a little human. I take the combo 4 times a day. I wish I could find something that's long lasting where I wasn't eating meds all day.

Overcomer-- Do you go to the doctor for the injections or what?

I was on oxycodone and gabapenyon but unfortunately my new doctor wont prescribe me oxycodone. I am on Hysingla ER (hydrocodone with NO Tylenol) and it works well...just makes me too sleepy.

Pharaoh. My son is alergic to Tylenol. He got the same as you did. (sorry can't remember the name right now) I'm on the Narco (hydrocodone with Tylenol)

Dilaudid comes in pill form (not as good as the shots) it's what I get in the hospital. (the shot form) it is nasty stuff. To much can really do damage to your system. Its pain managment they came up with for the terminally ill (like cancer patients). So you have to be careful with it.

The best pain relief I get is taking 2 aleve, 1 flexaril and a 30mg of morphine. Doc told me that combo is ok. I only take it maybe once a week cuz I try to save it when things get really bad. I don't want to get immune to it and have it not work any longer.

Humira for my RA

The only time I get legitimate relief is in the ER with ketamine IV. It's not narcotic and will stop a flare up in its tracks. Too bad I can't do it very often because I can't find a Dr to do it in an office setting. If anyone knows of one in the D.C. Metro are please let me know. Also MS Contin with cymbalta and nycenta helps control milder daily pain.
