Do you get nauseated with your pain meds, suffer from constipation, or itching. I take promethazine (25mg) and it works well for the nausea.
What pain meds have you tried to date and what side effects are you experiencing? Take benydrl for itching if you have problems with that. Currently I take dilaudid, a synthetic morphine and it is the only thing that truely helps ease my pain. If you get constipated I find Miralax works great without any cramping or discomfort that other laxitives have. It is a white powder, tasteless, and can be mixed with any drink. Gycolax is the generic brand, which I use because it requires a prescription and cost much less than the over the counter Miralax. I am also curious about herbs and would like to know more about them. Lyrica does help with fibromylacia it is very expensive even with my health insurance $60.00. I have much experience and knowledge about pain meds and other drugs as well. My daughter spent the majority of the last five years in hospitals until she passed a year ago. I was her patient advocate and her caregiver. During this time I spent several hours everyday doing researh on trusted medical websites which I found to be very informative. Please reply if you think I can help.
Cindy, I have tried Oxycodone at it's lowest strength and my Doctor isn't going to give me any more narcotics he says. I can wait to Fire him anyway. I don't like him and it's not because he won't give me any narcs.
I am allergic to Morphine, Vicodin, Ultram, Ibuprophin, Mobic.... Yeah that pretty much covers that pain killers except to Tylenol and Gamapentin.
I took Benedryl in the hospital ER because I got an itching because of the Morphine plus I was jumping all over the place the nurse threatened to tie me down if I didn't calm down... hehehehe
