My pcp and I are trying a new routine for the pain. I am now on Tramadol 3x/day; Klonopin every 6 hours; and Nortriptyline at bedtime. I was able to wean myself off of my Cymbalta, percocet, and Lunesta. For now this is working, and I also go to a pain management doc. that gives me the medial branch blocks in my lower back when I need them. I also tried acupuncture as per my Neuro-surgeon suggested, ( he tried it and got good results!) this past couple of weeks for neck and headache pain, I will see how long the effects last!!
We take so many things, it is nice to give some up once in a while if they just aren't working, even if we add new ones...we are just looking at what is best for each of us. Good Luck to you .
Also taking regularly: Advair, Toprol, prednisone 10mg., Crestor, and Humira
