I have Fibromyalgia and several hernia repairs therefore a lot of belly pain not to mention generalized pain. My doc wont give me Tramadol because of the antidepressants i'm on. Does anyone know of any other pain medication besides over the counter that will help my severe pain? I can't take IBuprofen.
LOOK IT UP!!!. My niece was in trazodone during her pregnancy and her baby was born with her heart on the outside of her chest. The therapist didn't educate herself to know not to prescribe it to her. If you are pregnant, then I recommend you read up on trazodone and Zoloft because you shouldn't take them. It was her therapist that prescribed the medicine to her, not her OB/GYN. I noticed you put prenatal plus on your list. They fixed it and she lived but they contributed it to the trazodone she was taking.
My body is a tank and handles meds well.
Both the NICE and OARSI guidelines recommend the use of oral NSAIDs at the lowest effective dose [50, 119]; long-term use should be avoided . The recent ACR recommendations list topical capsaicin, topical NSAIDs, oral NSAIDs (including COX-2 inhibitors) and tramadol for initial pain treatment of.
Recommended dosing should not exceed 400 mg/d, and should be reduced or closely supervised in geriatric patients (≥ 75 years) and those with cirrhosis or renal dysfunction. Tramadol may be associated with a risk of dependence or abuse; the prevalence of abuse/dependence over a 12-month period in patients with chronic non-cancer pain was, however, equivalent for tramadol and NSAIDs, and significantly less than for hydrocodone.
Opioids are often considered mandatory for treatment of chronic pain, but many patients would prefer an alternative. Doctors say those alternatives may also work better in some cases. And that's when I chose to take tramadol. GINGOLD: Tramadol. That's considered a safe low-level opiate medication.

For those taking narcotics, breakthrough pain might be a sign that the body is developing tolerance to the narcotic, Ferrante says.

Despite two years of suffering and constant new attempts at treatment (and thousands of dollars), none of my doctors have prescribed me anything but tramadol or valium to deal with the pain I'm in, and I don't take more than 2.5 mgs of valium a night, and I rarely take the tramadol because it doesn't do.
I was planning to try Metamucil caps for trying to lower my cholesterol naturally along with more stringent dieting. And 5 capsules. I cant figure out if the directions say with or without food.

Plus I'm not sure how much liquid they plan on. Being catheterized doesn't bother me, but the electro pads near my anus, and the cath in my rectum bother me as I have just gotten over diverticulitis.
