How did everyone decide what pain meds to take? I am currently taking 800 mg. ibuprofen 3x daily along with 5/325 hydrcodone only as needed to augment. The only doctor who helped me decide what to take was my neurologist who I've been seeing for 20+ yrs. for my seizures. I've noticed how reluctant doctors are to prescribe lortab as though if I take one I will die or become an instant addict. Lortab really works.
