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

would your dr. consider putting you on one of the long lasting pain patches? i know that there are several. my friend is on a fentanyl patch...i think its good for 72 hrs. and takes vicoden for the break thru pain.
good luck........

I would be when I mentioned it to her, she said, "I don't think your in that much pain yet"...it made me feel like a baby and I just stayed quiet. I guess its because some days I don't need anything, and others I do???
