My husband failed for both morphine and benzos but I am positive tylenol (acetaminophen) with codeine was all he took.?
Morphine OK. Benzos shouldn't and could not be there if that is all he took.
What are my options for pain management if I can't take tylenol, (acetaminophen) codeine, morphine or narcotics?
Excellent question. I'd start with a good history & phys. incl osteopathic hands-on exam.Traditional treatments incl TENS units, NSAIDS (oral or topical), steroids, spinal stimulators, nerve blocks,rhizotomy, etc.A better alternative for many pts. is to have dr. that can find the ROOT CAUSE of the pain & fix it w/ treatments like manipulation/prolotherapy/neuroproltherapy, removing foods which cause inflammation, etc. Read more...
