My rheumatologist told me a few months ago that my fibro pain was so severe that he thought I needed a narcotic, so he's been prescribing Lortabs to help. I've tried lyrica, but it makes my appetite get out of control and I'm in the losing stage, don't need to gain more weight, especially after having been on prednisone for 6 years.
The end result is that the days that I take one or two lortabs when I first wake up, I end up having a real good day. Then I take another one in the evening, as it seems the pain gets worse when I'm in bed, or inactive. Maybe I just feel it more.
My only concern is that I'll start relying on it. I only take it when the pain is extreme so as to not start taking more the the prescribed amount.
I'm curious about any experience you guys might have had with this kind of pain control. Thanks.
