The orthopedic I'm going to had put me on narco and valium and it was working for me. It kept my pain down to almost nothing and I could still function. He said lets try non narcotic. I said ok but I would like to stay with the valium because it works great for muscle spasms. And he changed both anyway to tramadol and flexeril. Now thanks to him not listening to me or care of my input I now want to vomit with every swallow. I have a horrible taste in my mouth.
