I am stuck with Motrin right now because I can't handle all of the other pain killers the dr has given me. I have oxycotin, vicodin, flexeril and a few others, but I end up feeling so wierd. I end up putting up with the pain because of it. Maybe with everyone's advice I could come up with something. I am also going to mention the anti-inflamatories to my dr. I do have celebrex, but my stomach couldn't handle it after a while. I now have to take nexium because of the topamax and the motrin I take. Do you just get used to the feeling after a while? Thanks once again. I know I can be a pain
Prednisone is a drug that you CANNOT just quit taking. You must be weaned off prednisone.
