Hello All,

I have had the pain pump inserted and a few weeks ago I was
reading on here some of what people had in their pain pumps.
I can not find the thread, and I can not remember what this
particular med was. People were so pleased with it, and advised
that I should at least ask about it.

Any thoughts out there?

Hope someone can help, Thank you!
Have a well day!

Have you tried the Search function.

I know there are a couple of Posters here with Pain Pumps.

Good luck with your search or maybe someone will come along with the answer.

edit:Search "pain pump medication".There are many Threads.

Hi d58 - Search should help you as Rick & Abilene said.

I think you'll find the most common pain meds used are either morphine or hydromorphone - some doctors will also use varying amounts of bupivacaine, as this is meant to help with uptake of the opioid & I believe some doctors use clonidine for the same purpose. I'm a little different as my pump is more for dystonia than primary pain management, and I have a combo of high dose baclofen/low dose morphine.

Another drug again - not something I have any experience with, and indeed not sure we have anyone here who uses it, is ziconotide (prialt) which was developed from the cone snail toxin.

D58, most drs use Morphine because it is cheap. They can put Dilaudid in one but it is very expensive & they tend to not use it much especially if Morphine is an option. Prialt I would never agree to, its too dangerous. Back many, many years ago I believe Stella Marie had it put in her pump & they nearly lost her. I would have my pump removed if Prialt was the only thing left.

A lot of drs are sticking to one pain medication in the pumps because if a combo of meds is used & the patient starts having problems they don't know which medication is causing the problem.

Good luck.
