Is it ok to take robaxin (methocarbamol) & narco together ?

Yes: These medications can be used together although there is a significant risk of constipation as well as difficulty with memory, concentration, and confusion. An important step is to explore why you need these medications. Robaxin (methocarbamol) and narco are symptom treatments. It is always better to get rid of the problem than to treat the symptoms alone. ...Read more

Don't  want narco I wanted to know if there's something better to use so I don't get so sleepy during the day?

Medicine subs: OK- that sounds fair. So what else would work? Some medicines used for pain other than narcotics- many of them cause sleepiness. For headaches (is that what you have?) perhaps magnesium or propranolol would help.

Maybe your question is- what would be the best medicine for symptom ______ ? If so, let us know. ...Read more

I have found nothing thus far helpful for my fibromyalgia except narco which was short acting so I came off them .. Is there a extended relief form ?

I have found nothing thus far helpful for my fibromyalgia except narco which was short acting so I came off them .. Is there a extended relief form ?

Narcotics/Opiates: There are extended release forms of opiate pain killers. For many, chronic opiate use is not really the way to go. You will find relief, but you will likely need to continuously escalate the dose over time. Then, over some years, you could be on high doses of opiates but still with pain. Then, you will have withdrawal symptoms without them. It may thus be better with non-opiates for fibromyalgia. ...Read more

Yes I an 18cm long 8 CM wide 6cm deep access cut out yesterday on my hip. They gave me 10/32 narco. Nurse said I could take 2 at a time every 4 hrs?

One every 4 hours...: If you can get by on one every four hours and only if you need it, you would be better off. When it comes to opioids (narcotics), using the least you can to take the edge off the pain is best. Remember to drink plenty of water (enough to keep your urine clear) and to eat food with plenty of fiber to improve circulation, detoxify and help avoid opioid-induced constipation. Also may add a stool med. ...Read more

I took Imitrex (sumatriptan) at 8am and again at 10:15am and i still have this migraine is it okay for me to take a narco?

You need a plan: You should have a written and clear plan with your provider each step of the way as to what to do if your headache does or does not get better with stepwise medicine. Whoever is prescribing your medicine should want to know if it is working or not, so you are not left wondering what to do next. Even your medicine bottles should tell you--does the Norco say to take it if Imitrex (sumatriptan) fails? Call doctor! ...Read more

Be careful, as Lortab also contains tylenol, (acetaminophen) an overdose of which can cause liver failure and death. talk 2 ur MD ...Read more

Tramadol: Tramadol may be safer but there is still a risk.
