I have tried chiropractic care, and my doctor has prescribed pain meds such as ultram and ibuprofen 800mg for the athritis.Is there any other options ?
Hello, well hope that the following helps! There is an older NASID called Volltaren. The Voltaren comes in the following forms: Voltaren gel (can be rubbed on joints providing some pain relief), Voltaren XR (Extended Relase),
Voltaren Immediate Release; their is another formulation or derivative of Voltaren, goes under the name,"Cataflam" (Diclofenec Potassium), which literally melts in your mouth. Please note, the Voltaren and Cataflam are not bioequivalent in dosing capacities. Again, know several persons, including myself, that have had great relief with this medication. Best Wishes
morning hector,there are as meny pain meds as there are kinds of pain. most doctors will try all the non-additive meds befor they start you on something additive. with good reason,i might ad.when it comes down to it,my pain management doctor asked me what is worse your pain or withdraw. that a question your gona have to answer yourself... good luck with your decision.
