There are so many different medications out there for spinal patients. For the purpose of this thread, I am going to eliminate the
nerve (Lyrica, Neurontin), muscle (zanex, baclofen) and others.
I would like to concentrate on the opiate, the narcotic medication that you are taking for pain relief.
This could range from a Tylenol with Codeine to Oxycontin 80mg.
What did you first start taking? What were the results?
Everyone is in different stages of their pain recovery or maintenance.
Over the years, I have been on so many different pain medications, patches, etc that at times its hard to keep tract. But I did, I logged all my medications. This way I would have a journal into the overall success of pain medications
Everyone is different. Some found better relief from pain medication "A", while others find that medication "A" doesnt do any thing for them.
Always keep in mind, that narcotics are never the answer for total relief. Please read The Blend
This was a thread I put together a number of years ago.
Right now, I am interested in hearing from our members as to which pain medication worked the best for them and which ones did not
