I heard a good combonation therapy for trigenial neuralgia syndrome is gabapentin and oxycodone is that true? This personally worked for me
Yes and no: The gabapentin, or other antiseizure medications like it, will usually do a good job preventing the shocks in your face. Oxycodone is a very addictive narcotic. If your symptoms are so bad you need narcotics, then you should consider surgery. I do a "keyhole microvascular decompression" which allows most of my patinets to go home the day after surgery, with over 90% cure rate and no numbness. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

None: Can't really think of an OTC med strong enough to quell the pain of a broken limb. Usually narcotic pain relievers would be used. I never recommend NSAIDS like Advil or Aleve when you need healing as they do relieve pain, but they also interfere with the healing process, potentially prolonging the healing phase.You're pretty much left with Tylenol (acetaminophen). If no choice & really need relief, use an NSAID. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Narcotics: Unfortunately, narcotics act to decrease mast cell threshold such that an itchy rash occurs commonly. This does not usually correspond to a true antibody-mediated allergy. The good news is that morphine does this the most, so some people tolerate other narcotic pain medications such as Fentanyl even if morphine causes hives. An Allergist may be helpful in generating safe and effective options. ...Read more

Self Medication: You do not specify the type of medication. I may take a couple of advil (ibuprofen) before I do something athletic, but i would neve take a prescription medication prior to a workout, or tryout. Too many reasons to list here, but masking real pain, fatigue or euphoria, drug testing etc are just a few. If you are up to the sport - go do it. If not, see a sports medicine physician for help. ...Read more
A cardiologist has told me that consumption of liquor (limited) is a good medicine for a heart patient. How true is this?
Is fioricet(plain) and norco10/325 a good combination for tension/migraines? It seems to be the only thing that has worked for me. My new dr disagrees
Not a good plan: Fioricet ; Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) are habit-forming medications, and migraine can be a very long-term problem. Beyond conventional meds, many nutritional interventions may help, such as adding magnesium. Coq10, riboflavin (vit b2), and herbal feverfew. Eliminate coffee/caffeine, and monitor your diet for food sensitivities. Biofeedback and other mind-body approaches can help too. http://tinyurl.com/y883ulg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
