I have Ankylosing Spondilitis. I've suffered with it for over 20 years! I'm 45 now....I take Voltaren for the inflammation to my joints....I take Prevasid to keep me from getting an ulcer from the Voltaren....I take Morphine sulfate to battle breakthru pain....I take Oxycontin for the main pain....I take Methotrexate to battle the AS.....I take Sulfasalazine to battle the AS...I take Xanax to battle the depression and anxiety brought on by the AS.....as you can see, its going to be one long trip! But its good to be alive!!
