Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) board


good early morning eveyone:wave:

For my RSD pain I used to take:
Lyrica 75mg 3xday,
Ultram 50mg 4xday,
Cymbalta 60mg 1xday,
and Ambien cr 12.5mg at bedtime

Then a few months ago I had to switch doc's (the doc I had moved to florida at the end of December) so I started seeing his assosiate I'm starting to think that was a mistake.
the pills I was on weren't really helping all that well but they were atleast taking the edge off the pain and making it bearable.

but when I switchted doc's he changed my pills:

he had me on:
Ultram 50 mg 4 x a day
Cymbalta 60 mg 1 x a day
and Ambien 12.5 mg at bedtime

I asked him if he could give me something stronger just to help on the days
when I can't handle the pain anymore and he said no and looked at me like i was addicted to them I had been given Vicaton and Skelexon on different occasions and I would only take then when the pain and burning in my leg got so intence that I couldn't handle it any more. I don't like how they make me feel drugged the next day so I only used them maybe 2 x a month sometimes more depending on the weather and what all I had to do that day.

so now he has me on:
Ultram ER 200mg 1x a day
Cymbalta 60mg 1 x A day
and Ambien 12.5 mg at bedtime.

I am also on other meds for other conditions (I have diebetes and ashma)
so along with the pills I take for the RSD I am on

Glucotrol 10mg 2x a day
Avandia 4mg 2x a day
Glucophage 500mg 2pills 2x aday
and Prinivil 10 mg 1x aday
also I am on:
Pulmacort 200 3 puffs 2x aday
Alburteral 17g 2 puffs whenever needed

and being on the 200mg dose of Ultram I get neusous sometimes and can't eat.
