So sorry that you are in that much discomfort. From day one, my rhuemy gave me a script for darvocet and has no problem with letting me use it daily if needed. It is a godsend on those days that the pain is elevated. Many times I will cut it in half just to take the edge off. I also use the voltaren gel, it helps but it doesn't last like the darvocet does. The gel is great for a quick fix and to help with the inflammation of the joints. I hope you find something that works. I truly believe that we do not have to suffer daily to have a better quality of life. Good Luck!
Hugs and Angels,
DX - sle and carpal tunnel
RX - plaquenil, prednisone, lisiniprol, etolodac, darvocet and flexeril when needed, hormones and vitamins.
