My pain is excruciating, and I was on vicoden for years, It has helped me to live. Where other meds did not. This is my 4th day, and I hurt so bad. The PM doc put me on 25 mg Lyrica, and 25 mg. meloxicam. I am waiting for relief. Thes past days,OK,I was off from work. Tomorrow I go back. It is a physical job. I hope it does not get screwed up.
I did not abuse my vicodens,4-5 a day, no more. I made sure of that, and I still had some pain, but it has helped to dull my pain and let me fuction. Why do the doctors feel the need to get people off vicodens, prcocets,etc, if they are working to help the pain?
