Does anyone get by on something that's not a narcotic? My leg is better and have stopped the Cymbalta for that and was hoping I could get back to work. I can't take any narcotics while working does anyone have any ideas what I could try to stop the pain so I can work. I really want to taper these narcotics I take. Anyone use Ibuprofen or something that doesn't make you sleepy?
