Think holistically: Medications are one way of controlling nerve pain. Pain is a complex holistic process. You may be able to decrease need for meds by addressing other issues. That includes nutrient status, stress or emotional trauma that may have accompanied or pre-dated the injury, and movement and use of the limb. It's a complex topic. You might look for a doc who does integrative or functional medicine. ...Read more

Same thing can occur with generic versus name brand medications. You happen to have better response to lortab.

Can narcotic pain pills diliuid, oxycodone, nucynta (tapentadol) cause hallucinations in a 72 year old women she says she's having them ?

Absolutely YES: Why is a 72 yr old women taking dilaudid, oxycodone, and/or nucynta, (tapentadol) for chronic back pain? Not only are there GI effects such as nausea and constipation, but there is risk of sleep apnea, delirium, and cardiac arrhythmias. In my opinion, you need to find a geriatrician and get this under control. ...Read more

Addition of caffeine: For these types of headaches, without getting into prescription medication, and anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen, combined with caffeine(i.e. coffee or Mountain Dew) often helps.

What is better for pain after shoulder surgery: lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or percocet?

What is better for pain after shoulder surgery: lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or percocet?

Depends: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) contains hydrocodone and Percocet contains oxycodone, two different opiates. On a purely mg to mg basis, oxycodone is usually stronger but different people react to different opiates differently. If it were me i would start with percocet. You might also the anesthesiologist ask for an "interscalene block" which can give dramatic pain relief for the first day or so. ...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

Can I take Advil (ibuprofen) for Hematoma pain control post op gallbladder while taking Cipralex, Clonazapam, and bupropion?

Advil (ibuprofen) can be: taken 3 times a day. I'd try 400 mg. If you go with 600 mg (3 pills) you may want to check kidney function periodically with a blood test. Advil (ibuprofen) can inhibit prostaglandin E2 at higher doses and reduce the blood filtering power of the kidney. ...Read more

There are various herbs but this is not my specialty. Recommend following up with a pain management specialist and/or homeopathic specialist. There are also doctors of natural medicine possibly in your area. ...Read more
