i dont want my dr to think i need it all the time, i just need to have something when its gets to much for me to handle..im always in pain, cant take it any more... what to do please help!
can you take an asprin type pain killer? They have 600 and 800 mg Ibuprofin. You need a script for that. It's non-addictive. If you just take the recommended dose for a few days or a week, it should break the cycle of pain. I've found that just a few pills can break the pain. If that doesn't work, then U can talk to the doctor about something stronger, and should be able to get it. I hope that it works out for you-Take care, and let me know how you're doing.
Yes! A good doctor does not want you to be in pain. If your doctor may think you "need it all the time", so what? Maybe you do. If your doctor gives you pain medication that does not help enough, ask him or her for something different. Also, taking too much Tylenol can cause severe liver damage and death. So, it may be better for you to stop taking that
Hopefully, your doctor will help you find out the reason you are "always in pain". WHAT is the root of the problem? Try to get help with that ASAP, as pain is our body's way of telling us something is wrong.
Try to remember that our doctors are here to help (not judge) us. We are all different and react differently to medications. You are paying your doctor to HELP you. If he/she doesn't do their job, find a new one!
Eve, SL is right. You can't just keep trying to take more and more OTC stuff to help your pain problems. You should have a doctor following you are this OTC stuff is meant for short term use, and is actually more dangerous than using narcotics for long term use!! I'm not sure what is wrong with you except that you are in a great deal of pain, but too many people have needed liver and kidney transplants because instead of talking to the doctors, they took the OTC meds upon themselves. Look at acetaminophen, they took almost 60 years to admit that the dosage was way too high, and that it killed your liver. AT least the FDA watches script drugs, and checks them out frequently for people calling in and telling them side effects. Please, get a doctor involved with your pain meds, whether you continue to take acetaminophen or aspirin, or ibuprofen!
