So I am on 7.5 vics 4 to 5 times a day and they work for 2.5 hrs than the pain returns and leaves me waiting till the next dose for relief. I also use a heating pad and a tens unit. My questions is what can I get that will help with the BTP or switch to another med? I am allergic to percocet and fetnyl patches are out because I get really cold at times and put on alot of clothing and then get over heated, not to mention I use the heating pad alot and frankly the patches scare the he** out of me!! My pharmasist suggested taking 600 to 800 mg of motrin in addition to the vics but need to run by the doc on wednesday. What do you think?Any ideas of what doc might give me?
