Bottom line, if I lived on Vicodin I probably wouldn't have the pain.
But then there r the side effects like constiiation.
I guess I feel sad because a cousin of mine asked me why can't you travel to Canada to see my family.
I told him chronic pain & fibro.
Not sure if he quite understands.
But do I want to travel, of course.
It just takes so much out of me & then I get sicker.
Methadone is also prescribed to patients with extreme severe pain when opioid need to be avoided or Don t work!
I don't take Vicodin often.
Only when pain is very great & if other things like Cbd & marijuana don't work.
What did u use to travel for your pain?
I take methadone & have since 2002. The constipation problem is almost avoided by eating apples, prunes, cottage cheese & peaches. . . I eat a lot of fruit & drink tons of water. Every once in a while I have to take something to help, but not all the time. The problems we have just trying to be ‘normal’ would drive a well person crazy 😜
Would your doctor consider giving you prednisone for 15 days, so that you would be able to travel? ( a prednisone taper. 20 mg a day for 5 days, 10 mg for 5 days, 5 mg for 5 days) It would temporarily give you some strength.
