DO YOU HAVE ARTHRITIS? IF SO WHAT FORM

MANY DRUGS TALKED ABOUT HERE ARE CALLED DMARDS = DISEASE MODIFYING ANTI RHEUMATIC DRUGS SUCH AS METHOTREXATE, ARAVA IMURAN
THEN THERE ARE THE ANTI TNF/BIOLOGICS SUCH AS ENEBREL HUMIRA REMICADE

THEN THE CLASSIC NSAID'S
IBRUOFEN, DIFENE/VOLTROL/DICLOFENIC, NAPROYSN. ARCOXIA, CELEBREX

PEOPLE DO TAKE PAINKILLERS BUT MOST CAN TAKE ANALGESIA WITHOUT TAKING NARCOTICS.

I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON THE SEVERITY OF THE DISEASE AND ALSO IF THE PATIENT HAS OTHER MEDICAL PROBLEMS.

I MYSELF AM CLASSED AS AN "OPIOD TOLERANT" IVE BEEN SICK FOR ABOOUT 7 YEARS AND AM ON PAINKILLERS SINCE THEN STARTING ON LIGHTER STUFF BUT IN MAY 2004 I BECAME VERY ILL AND NEARLY LOST MY LEG AND THE PAIN AFTER THE ARTERIAL CLOT WAS GONE WAS TERRIBLE AND THIS HAPPENED SEVERAL MORE TIMES I WAS ALSO HAVING ABDOMINAL SURGERY THROWN IN WITH IT AT THE TIME I AT FIRST WAS ON TRAMADOL AND SOLPODOL THEN DF118's AFTER ALL OF THAT

THEN IN APRIL LAST YEAR I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SEVERE PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS, THIS ALONG WITH LOTS OF PAIN FROM OTHER MEDICAL PROBLEMS I NEARLY WENT INSANE I WAS IN AGONY SO I WAS PUT ON OXYCONTIN AND OXYNORMS I WAS ON 80MG OF OXYCONTIN TWICE A DAY AND 20 OXYNORM AS I NEEDED IT, I WAS GETTING SOME RELIEF BUT BY 8 HOURS ID BE IN AGONY AGAIN SO I FINALLY GOT A CONSULT WITH A PAIN MANAGEMENT DOCTOR WHO ALSO HAS RA SO HE UNDERSTANDS WHERE IM COMING FROM HE STARTED ME ON DURAGESIC(FENTANYL) PATCH AND ACTIQ(FENTANYL LOLLIPOPS)

SO NOW IM ON LOTS OF MEDS ILL ONLY GIVE THE ONES RELEVANT TO ARTHRITIS

IM ON DIFENE 100 MG EVERY 12 HRS
DELTRACORTRIL/PREDENISOL 15MG
IMURAN 25MG EVERY 12 HRS
ARAVA 20MG
DURAGESIC/FENTANYL PATCH 100
ACTIQ/FENTANYL POPS EVERY 4 HOURS 600-800MICROGRAMS AS NEEDED
