I've been taking various rx.s of meloxicam 15 mg per day, ketorolac 10 mg q 6hrs; alternating those per pain level-not taken together-or the same day; and now have temp. Stopped those two and temp. Taking oxoycodone /acetam. 5.325 1 q6hrs. Due to now having ACDF -cervical fusion. I know I will need to keep taken medications, but I do not want to keep taken ANY of the above since they have many side effects and their potencial For dependancy. I would need to know the alternative, any ideas?
I take Celebrex which is an NSAID which is relatively safe compared to others.
All NSAIDS can cause gastritis and ulcers, with bleeding. They all increase your bleeding time, and they all can effect your heart. The only one you named with a potential for dependancy is oxycodone. Dependency is a natural reaction to narcotics, and its not something terrible. All it means is you can't stop it abruptly. It is not the same thing as addiction.
