I have MS and trigem neuralgia and have terrible pain. Tried gaba, baclofen, norco, (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) elavil, tegretol, otc, etc...What is the best pain med for this?
Trigeminal neuralgia: Sadly trigeminal neuralgia is a poorly understood disease that has an even worse track record for treatment. Most patients suffer from this disease without much relief. There is a growing body of evidence looking into Lamotrigine as a treatment. Ask your prescribing doctor if this is an alternative. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I'm taking Amitryptyline, Neurontin (gabapentin) and Naproxen for severe back pain and spasms. Is it safe to take methocarbamol as well?
Yes: Fibromyalgia has no specific effect on intestinal function, but all narcotic pain relievers are constipating. Drinking more water and taking a stool softener or fiber supplement is usually adequate to correct the problem. With long term use, the constipation may go away. Tramadol has little effect on the part of the brain that causes pain medications to be habit forming, so often safer option. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How often is a narcotic pain reliever prescribed for fybromylgia and ulcerative colitis? Nsaids make uc symptoms worse and neurotin doesn't help much.
Arthritis: Sulfasalazine is used primarily for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis or ulcerative colitis. Mobic (meloxicam) and advil can be used for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis. Not sure what your condition is, but i would not take advil and Mobic (meloxicam) as those are same class medications. Sulfasalazine is sulfa based drug and is somewhat different from advil and mobic (meloxicam). ...Read more
Neuropathic pain: responds to many different agents. Its important that the treatment not exacerbate (amitriptyline) nor end up being worse for you (tramadol) than the disease / condition. Serotonergic syndrome and seizures can occur with Ultram. Elavil will cause anticholinergic symptoms and may actually worsen some types of neuropathy. Venlafaxine may help but it is not a top choice in my practice. ...Read more
What can be taken for bad muscle and joint pain besides nsaids? nephrologist and gastroenterologist both said no nsaids and tylenol (acetaminophen) doesn't help
Try topical therapy: To minimize side effects, topical therapy like heat, massage, capsaicin cream &lidocaine patches are often helpful. It's important to remember that some degree of musculoskeletal discomfort is to be expected with age, and getting our mind to focus on other things is really important. Gradual exercise helps. Stronger pain meds should be used only occasionally due to life-threatening side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can any doctor offten to a person that takes omeprazol (for inhibiting stomach ulcer), tramadol that has 10mg hcl?
Hydrochloride: Most medications exist in a "salt" form and HCl salt is the therapeutic form of tramadol. It is made so that it can have a therapeutic pH for its intended function. It will not be harmful to the stomach as it is. You should not combine it with an anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprfen when there are stomach symptoms. I hope this clarifies your doubts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do some of your doctors say it’s ok to take tramadol and fluoxetine together - and some don’t ?
Serotonin syndrome: Tramadol has SNRI properties, so it is serotonergic. When combined with other serotonergic meds like fluoxetine, there is potential for serotonin syndrome. Depends on the doses, really, and the individual's tolerance to serotonergic agents. Some docs are more comfortable than other co-prescribing serotonergic drugs. I've safely co-prescribed these, but I've always been vigilant about monitoring. ...Read more
I have an Ulcer pain and it won’t stop since 5pm and it’s 11. I’ve taken antacids. What else can I do to help stop or reprieve the pain.
Good analgesic: Tramadol is one of the only non-narcotic pain "killers" on the market. It is good for mild to moderate pain but is fairly short acting, clinically providing pain reduction for 2-4 hours, on average. It comes in an er (extended release) form for patients with chronic daily pain. Ask your doctor for advise if this agent is right for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No inflow: Venous stasis is caused by valve problems that allow blood from deep high-pressure veins to enter low-pressure veins just under the skin. These veins enlarge, letting fluid through the walls (swelling), letting blood through (discoloration) and finally having so much back pressure that nutritious arterial blood cannot enter an area of the skin resulting in ulcers. It is treated by laser ablation. ...Read more
