Can you take Soma with Naltrexone (50mg) and Buprenorphine (8 mg, twice a day)?
Technically they are opiate blockers. Meaning I cannot take painkillers, because I will not feel relief from them. My neurologist prescribed them for the Fibro pain, he said they don't know why they work for it, but they do. They have helped a lot with the pain, but there are still days where the pain is so bad that nothing I take helps.
I am happy that your PCP and specilist stay connected. Far to many times they don't. That can spell disaster. Yes,KUMedical is good. Two thumbs up. Wish we lived closer. To far to go for me.
Yes Joy, all doctors but the one at KU med center are all connected. When I go to the doctor they can see my med list, just like all the other specialists. The Neurologist is the one that prescribed the Cymbalta, Naltrexone, Buprenorphine, Sonata, and the Requip. They either print a list of current medicines or ask if they are all current and usually go through them all. My PCP gets notes from all the specialists, and some of them even forward the notes on to my neurologist. This system that the hospital/doctors have us pretty neat. My PCP gets notes from KU too.
First question...is your doctor aware of all these meds prescribed to you? Do they go overall youcurrent meds you takeT every o ffice visit? It should be done especially if you see different doctors. Always more a current list of names and doeages and who prescribed them. Always a best bet. I can tell you for a fact most doctors d o not communicate with each other any more. So you meed to take charge of some things.
