The first week after my foot surgery I was actually doing better than expected but going into the second week I'm having spasms like crazy. I'm wondering If the meds that I was on during the oper. kept them at bay? I was prescribed 60 Lortab 10/500 and 10 Oxycontin 10 mg. I only took 3 of the Oxy and a few of the Lortabs "bottle is practically full". I'm not comfortable taking the Oxy because I've heard they're bad news and the Lortab 10/500 make me nauseous. I've been on Lortab 10/325 for a about
a year 4x day but they only curb the pain. I think I may benefit going on something else that the strong dose doesn't make me queasy. I know that you cant expect to live pain free but it would be nice to manage.
OK now about the spasms. I have zanaflex 4mg and 10mg Flexeril. I don't really know that much about muscle relaxers and I want to know your advice. The Zanaflex helps but just barely. the Flexeril does work but sometimes knocks me out which is good because my Zolpidem doesn't really help me fall asleep anymore but helps me stay asleep. I'm on more meds now than my 85yr neighbor/buddy.
What are you on and/or have you been on these? Thanks for reading!!!
