Pain Medication

Pain Medication

Hello warriors
I wanted to know what pain meds you are taking and are the very effective?

Ive tried a few, honestly yes and no, some work some days and not others, i currently have tramadol for my worst days, thats been the most helpfulfor me, but i know for others it hasnt. It really is dependant on your body and its all chemical reactions. I have the attitude of 'anything is worth a try'.

I am now on the highest dose pain patch. I previously took 8 to 10 panadeine forte and amytriptaline. That helped a bit, for a while. Now i am on the patches and no other drug for pain. It takes the sharp edges off, to a level where i can cope. There is no rise and fall of the drugs wearing off. This method is the best one i have found. My body is using the drug quicker than is advised. So i change it every 4 days instead of 7.
One of the problems with oral drugs is that when you're in a bad fog cycle, its extremely hard to remember to take drugs regularly and on time. Ive relieved so much stress and pain, just because the drug is being administered in a constant slow rate through my skin.
Cant tell you have much relief i have now. Highly recomend a pain patch. The one i am on doesnt make me drowsey as its not morphine.
