all my dr seems to give me is tylenol 3 with codeine, it does nothing for the pain and keeps me awake, i need something better, cant take nsaids or those kinds of meds as due to my asthma.what other pain meds r out there i could mention to my dr?
Eve54, are you seeing a family dr or a pain management Dr? Often family practitioners just wont prescribe anything stronger than Tylenol#3 and maybe Vicodin and it doesnt sound like those did anything for you. Both of those medicines make me feel sick but I can take Percocet and other oxycodone products but a lot of family practitioners wont prescribe them-they are a higher Scheduled drug (Schedule 2, where Tylenol#3 and Vicodin are Schedule 3-the lower the number the higher the abuse potential. Schedule 1 drugs are illegal drugs with no medical purpose) You might ask for a referral to a pain management Dr. They are more likely to prescribe the stronger medications than your family Dr.
