Re: Drug Of Choice.

well, before surgery and after I was preferring 10/325 mg Percocets. I was given Lortabs after surgery, but they didn't quite cut it. I am now on 7.5/325 percs. I take two usually at a time, sometimes I try and take one, but we'll see....

Re: Drug Of Choice.

to be quite honest, nothing, not even percocet, really cuts my back pain. It makes me high so I don't care as much, and takes the edge off when the nerve is stabbing like a knife.

I'm curious. Has anyone found a drug that actually RELIEVES the back pain? To what degree? Some or completely takes the pain away?

Good question.

Re: Drug Of Choice.

If your looking for the best medication to help with you pain you need to take a long acting or time released medication on a regular basis and then a short acting medication for the break-thru pain.
I have done the:
oxycontin/vicodin for BT

duragesic patch/percocert for BT

methadone percocet for BT

with CP you can't really get good paim management without the longer acting medications and then meds for the BT.
