Can I supplement my oxycodone pain management with morphine?

Can I supplement my oxycodone pain management with morphine?

Why?: You must discuss this with your treating doctor. They both fall into the opiate class of compounds and both do nearly the same thing. Oxycodone does however have some more desirable properties and may have fewer negative side effects. Sometimes the two are given together, it really depends on the clinical picture. ...Read more

I need better pain management meds for chronic pain from shrapnel inside me that can't be removed.I currently take tramadol and oxycodone?

Many wish there was: Many chronic pain sufferers wish there were better choices! Medical marijuana is a worthy possibility and - lucky you! It's legal in your state. Other than that - I was trained in a VA pain program in the dark ages and we used hypnosis training, lots of education, individually selected exercises, therapy and it was great! You might find the pieces and create your own program. Wishing you well! ...Read more

Hi I'm having sever back pain due to straining a muscle. Can I combine baclofen and Iboprofen together for the pain? I am using diazepam 5 mg bd too

You should not . . .: Good evening. You should not mix and match your medications without first contacting your doctor (the ones who prescribed these to you). Also, in my experience, Diazepam is as good a muscle relaxant as Baclofen (if not better). Either can be taken with Ibuprofen. Best of luck. ...Read more

Can i take sinalgen (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen) and nimesulide before a herniated disc l5-s1 surgery?. I take this 2 for pain

Can i take sinalgen (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen) and nimesulide before a herniated disc l5-s1 surgery?. I take this 2 for pain

Varies: The hydrocodone product is ok to take right up to surgery with the exception that most anesthesiologists prefer a patient not to take anything by mouth approx 6 hours before surgery. The nimesulide is an NSAID which inhibits inflammation, but also inhibits platelet fxn leading to risk of increased bleeding. I usually recommend no NSAID for 7 days preop, but surgeons preferences vary. ...Read more

How long is it safe to use Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain relief? I've had excruciating pain from mouth ulcer on back of tongue for a while, doc prescribed Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen).

Pain: Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) should only be used for short term pain relief. I would say 4 to 5 days max. How long have you had this pain? Was it an MD or DDS that looked at the sore and gave you the Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)? Mouth ulcers should heal within 7 to 10 days and rarely are they painful enough to take strong narcotics. I would recommend that you see your dentist. ...Read more

My pm doctor wants to switch me from Methadone to Nucynta (tapentadol) for fibromyalgia pain relief. I'm also taking Cymbalta. I don't feel like Nucynta (tapentadol) will work ?

Research suggests: That use of narcotics in fibromyalgia may be a bad choice in the end and drugs such as Cymbalta, Savella, (milnacipran) and Lyrica offer better longterm success. Yet, the Methadone needs to be handled, and a better switch at this stage would involve suboxone. I agree with you, going to Nucynta may not be a wise decision. Try to see a pain specialist. ...Read more

I am prescribed Ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) for my chronic pain. I take 3 tablets per day. Since, this medication is not a narcotic, will it cause me constipation?

Possibly : Ultracet (tramdol and acetaminophen) is a combination of a narcotic and acetaminophen (Tylenol). It may or may not cause you to develop constipation and if you do you will deal with it. Every time a doc prescribes a course of therapy there a risk/benefit or on the one hand but on the other hand argument. You as the patient have to decide if the pain relief out ways the constipation if you develop it. ...Read more
