I have had RA for 6 years without success on any treatment. For the past 8 months have taken lortab 10/500 for pain x 4 a day. I weaned myself off for 4 days now and about to start low dose naltrexone. I am afraid of a flare up with the RA--what do you folks take for pain? I cannot take NSaids or steriods
I take 50 mg Tramadol twice a day (brand name Ultram) Its not an NSAID and to be honest, i am really not sure what class of drugs it is. All I know is that I can take it without being drowsy at work. But just like other pain relievers, it works best when its kept at a constant level. When it wears off I get break-thru pain.
Check out this link to see a list of possible drugs for trating the RA. Many of them are NSAIDs but several are not.
Hope this helps,
