I fell down some stairs around Christmas time and hurt my back badly. I go to physical therapy twice a week but I'm still in so much pain. I was prescribed Vicoprofen 10mg six times a day. In addition to that I take Valium 5mg four times a day. I have taken both of them only a handful of times because I'm so scared of becoming addicted. I'm tired of being in pain. I would love to hear about alternatives to the pain pills and muscle relaxers.
