Today's topic is a Healing Well topic: What pain medication gives you the best pain relief??

Over the years you may have tried many different meds, but which one seems to finally work for you??

For me, the Percocet and the Lyrica work for me. I have been taking Percocet for years and just started back on the Lyrica and I finally found a combination that works to relieve my pain. I have to take the Lyrica twice a day and the Percocet about every four hours up to four or five a day. Last year I went through heck with pain until I finally decided to give the Lyrica a try once again. I had taken it years ago and it didn't work well for me. But this time, it works like a charm.

Thanks for letting me share. Come on, tell me about you!!

Gob Bless.

Vicodin HP which is 10mg of vicodin and 660 of tylenol two at dinner and 1/2 in the morning.
I throw up celebrex, lyrica, neurotin (sp wrong sorry). And can't wake up from ms coitin (hubby
almost had me at emergency room as he couldn't wake me), and so doctor got tired of using
me as a guinea pig for pain medications of which I'm glad about and so stuck for now
with the vicodin hp.

I tried topomax and it tried to kill me!
I used to take vicodin 5/325 but they did nothing
The doc gave me dilaudid 4mg and I was too scared to take them
I am now on percocet 5/325 3x per day and I think I may have found something that actually works. Not only does it get rid of my pelvic pain but it greatly reduces my neck pain to something close to managable!

Hysterectomy at 25

4 laproscopic surgeries since 24

Cervical stenosis in C3 & C4
