I often see that people take these meds but don't know what the names of them are so I can ask the doctors if they would help me sleep without so much pain. If you take them please can you give me the name of the medication you take and if it helps. Thank you. X
Bacclofin & lots of beer
Please how are you coping with it. Those that aren't getting enough medicine to control pain, what do you do?Let's talk 🦜
I've been on Narco 7.5 mg for 5 months 3 x a day. That's all and finally am getting 10 mg a day. I won't know until this Sunday if it works. I can only fill one prescription a month period. It doesn't matter if there's an extra day in the month and I'm short
The pain gets so bad I want to croak 🐸. Now we aren't going to do thanksgiving or Christmas because it's been so hard… read more
Lumbar spondylitis with bulging discs is my condition, I'm prescribed norco 4x daily. My friend thinks I should just smoke cannabis for pain relief. It is not sufficient. But I cannot convince him. Therefore I'm a druggie in his eyes.😔

My friend had been diagnosed with severe arthritis in his lower back. He goes to a pain clinic where he receives two strong prescriptions (Norco & Tramadol) for the pain but they only give him little. I feel like he needs something for inflammation but he can’t take NSAIDS because they make him bleed terribly. How does his doctor know it’s not AS instead of arthritis? If it is AS, has anyone tried acupuncture? If so, has it helped. He is very depressed and I’m worried about his mental… read more
