qty of 120 5 mg Ultram
qty of 60 Norco 10/325
qty of 90 600mg Motrin (my poor stomach)
qty of 15 Ambien (for problems sleeping from time to time)
qty of 90 Norco 10/325
qty of 90 Baclofen (never had this before, ever.)
qty of 60 Pamelor 25mg
(not sure if he will keep me on Ambien once I run out, said it was ok to keep taking what I have left as needed and we will see how things go)
I'm nervous because the tramadol started having almost no affect on my pain and the norco was following suit (I guess I'm tolerant, been on norco for years. I have to hope that the addition of the muscle relaxer Baclofen and the anti-depressant Pamelor will work well as a partner with the Norco.
My old doctor would not order new x-rays or an MRI despite my most current ones being 3+ years old now. He was also not open to trying new medications (they haven't shifted in 3 years now, at all). This new doctor went ahead and ordered the new x-rays, etc.
I don't really have what seems to be muscle spasms...so I'm not sure about the relaxer. I know my past MRI showed a narrowed nerve pathway, among other things.
Has anyone had experience with Baclofen and Pamerol? Did it benefit you? Any advice or experience you could share with me would be great.
I really wanted him to shift me off of the Norco, try something different. He wanted me to try this combination. He said something about there being 40-something anti-inflammatory's and that in his personal experience only 2 of those 40-something helped him.
I just want to be able to get to work and not lose my job. I want my house to be clean...I just want to enjoy my life again.
Wish me luck guys.
And good luck to all of you going through this, it's nice to find a place where people understand.
