I have Robaxin for muscle relaxer and I take Tylenol 3 for pain. I take them three to four times daily. I was on Cymbalta and have recently switched to Effexor, which has helped depression immensely. I have found Vicodin gives me migraines and is too strong. Tylenol 3 works great as long as you keep it controlled because it does contain a small amount of codeine.

I take flexaril I used to take zanaflex but it didn't work I take 600 gabapentin and 5 flexareel and just added Aleve I have loratab when I had shoulder surgery in May but I don't take it because it's addictive doc said Tylenol 3 with codine is less addictive and what I take now I take a prescription Aleve which is coated to help my stomach I used to take it years ago and quit because I couldn't handle the stomach pain I think for the first time in years I am on the right path I take the Tylenol 3 only when I am having a bad pain day I have tried a lot if meds over the years and nothing really helped until now

Stoped takeing both . Tryed tramadol was on a very low dose it did nothing for me . They never did increase it . Tryed other things nothing helped . Then shots in my spine and hips that did help for about 4 weeks of a time. Until they messed up the last one . Hurt me bad never went back for any more after that . Now I suffer everyday ! Some days really bad some days a little better but always in pain .heating nada and Aleave and all iv been doing for years now .
