They do not make me sleepy. I have experimented with higher dosage still no relief as my GP said would they would help. Also take Tylenol 4. I get miner relief taking it. At first he prescribed me hydrocodone 325mg 10 mg. that pain reliever did work better. A new law in our state changed the way they were prescribed and I would have to get a written prescription for them every time so he switched me to the Tylenol 4. I also alternate regular Tylenol and Advil along with the prescription drugs.I have been diagnosed with low bone density I am a male 51 years of age. My doctor did another x-ray on me and found A compression fracture. He sent me to have an MRI I have five bulging disc's and calcification in the area of the compression fracture. My back hurts all the time. So he is sending me to a Nero surgeon my appointment is in two weeks I just need to know how to answer his questions I have to work but I have to have some relief from this constant pain that never goes away the intensity varies with what I do during the day but the pain never stops. I'm cautious of any kind of back surgery from friends and acquaintances that I have not had good results with their back surgeries. Just need to be able to talk with this doctor and find out if there is a drug solution for my issues because I fear that they are not going to go away on their own and they will probably get worse as I age. And again as I said have to work. I'm in a sales job there is some lifting some heavy but mostly it's standing and helping customers but just the Mandane task of bending over a computer to type in information can be excruciating. I feel I have not detailed enough. Can you can help me with how to ask and answer questions with this doctor that I will be seeing it would be greatly appreciated.
destin16; you're doing just fine the way you put it here. Your worrying too much my friend.If I understand right this doctor well also have all your test results at the appt. And know that you are truly in pain and when you go take the list of medications you are taking now, And which are helpful which are doing nothing. This includes any of the over the counter meds you have been taking.
And you well be just fine say it like it is, And that you really need some relief from this pain and some sleep. Don't mess with your medication the Flexeril well work more for spasms then pain but you are not to go over the 10mg tablet or take more often.Let the doctor know that this is messing up all parts of your life and more so your ability to continue to work. That it is getting harder and harder to even sit and do computer work let alone stand all day and lifting is getting almost impossible. Don't worry just take this list like I was saying so you don't forget what all your taking and what you have taken and has not worked at all. Best of luck Chuck1957
