What pain meds are best at night for sciactia?

I have such bad sciatic nerve pain in my entire left leg from l5-s1 disk protrusion contacting and displacing my s1 nerve every night. I also have t11-T12 extrusion that i think causes lower back pain and tummy pain. Lastly both my arms and hands go to sleep and hurt every night. i didnt have a mri on my neck so i dont know if there is a disk hernitaton there. I'm on Vicodin and melatonin before bed but I still feel pain. What's the best nerve pain med that may also make me sleep? Or else I'll still take with melatonin if needed. Thanks, Michelle


  • see your doctor and tell him. only you and he can make these decisions.
    I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
