This includes prescriptions, OTC meds, homeopathic therapies, etc.
I take Lyrica (150mg 3xs a day); Tramadol (50mg up to 4xs); Robaxin (750mg two twice a day) and I also use lidocaine ointment, trigger point injections, Ibuprofen. Melatonin to help with sleepless painful nights and sometimes Magnesium. I have tried so many things over the years (14+) and these are the best combination I have found for my body. It is hard to go through different treatments to see what will work best for us or work at all. We are all so different.
I take a high potency CBD oil, amitriptyline, extra-strength tylenol, and use my heating pad.
@A MyFibroTeam Member Thank you. We have Tylenol OTC in the US and Tylenol w/codeine by prescription too. I havent heard of the numbered Tylenols. Unfortunately, all codeine products make me very sick to my stomach so I steer clear whenever possible. When I did have to take it in recent years [ie., postop] I had to cut 1 pill into thirds and space taking it by two hours so my stomach can handle it and even then it's iffy.
For my Fibromyalgia I use Naproxen and take Panadol Osteo because I am not allowed any Opiods.
At night I take Amitriptyline to help me sleep, use Deep Heat Rubbed on my back, heat pads, and Epsom Salts as well soaking sore feet, you can also have a relaxing bath in them as well.
Whatever medication and alternative therapies works for you, won't always work for someone else.
