Hello to everyone. I have not been to this new site since it has changed. It sure is different. I hope everyone has been doing okay.
I have a question about my pain meds. I currently go to pain mangement and take hydrocodone 10/650 4 times a day and flexerils as needed. The flexerils really leave me "hung over the next day" and the hydrocodone just does not always do the job. I work a full time job and have two children so taking anything really strong is just not an option. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what I could ask my doctor about changing my meds to. I usually have flareups about twice a week and the hydro's just don't cut it when this happens. I have been taking hydrocodone for about 2 years so I know that I have built up a tolerance but I just don't know what I could take that would allow me to function normally.
With the flexarils some people have suggested Zanaflex. Does this leave you that "hung over feeling"
Thanks for any advice.
