So I was diagnosed last May with Fibro and have been on several different pain medications, then last month I tested positive for Lyme. I'm on IV rocephin. I feel like alot of my aches and pains have subsided, but my headache's and shoulder pain are fierce. So my rhuemy have me percocets 10/325 to take 4-6 hrs as needed. I make it thru the day fine (I work and can't deal with any side effects from meds) but then when I go home I'm usually so spent and in pain I take one, well that means Ambien CR does not seem to do the trick when I take percocet. I end up with alot of break thru waking up.
What does everyone else use for break thru pain? I was on ultram, that really didn't do too much for me, I've been on vicodine, that was okay, and the tylenols w.codine. I was on Opana 15 mil but we decided I really don't need such long term pain medications right now.
Any alternatives? And no OTC stuff does not even come close
