Discussions that mention tylenol

Pain Management board


Welcome Justin!~
I may have missed it, but why cant you continue the Norco? Did your doc not want you on it? So glad to have you here! My doc didnt want to do the Oxy route because of contract issues, but he did agree to getting me compounded meds that are just pure hydrocodone. Thats what Norco would be without the tylenol. I use them for break tru meds and Im on the patch. Im SO SO glad to have a doc that doesnt make me go under contract. Ive heard conflicting issues about this, but i trust him completely, and have no fears at all. Hes been around foreve, and seen it all. As long as Im honest with him, he will always be there for me.
Im on 50 Fent patch and now the hrdo 15 mg 3x day. Maybe your doc would do that if he doesnt want to go to the oxy. It was a great option for me, and i live in a Tiny town, and we found a pharmacy that compounds only a few hours away. The doc calls in the script, and it takes maybe a day to make, and they ship it to you.
I asked my doc about it after I told him my ex- bro in law who owns a pharmacy, told me about it for an option. Can you ask your doc about things? discuss what maybe youve read or seen? My doc isnt intimidated be me always looking for new options or suggestions. I hope you can get the relief you are seeking, and please stay and let us know how you are coming along. Feel free to ask anything, too. there are the most amazing ppl here who have the utmost knowledge, Ive ever seen.
Glad you came here! it will be a pleasure to share your journey, and get to know you better~

egads !!! I HATE KADIAN, I have found "for me" that it is the most addictive prescription drug I have ever had. I am fighting right now to go OFF the Kadian. My meds come by mail and they were late due to a holiday..I went into a withdrawl that I could not believe. (I am a spinal cord patient who was injured on the job water skiing in 1972,,over 30 years now.) After five solid days and nights of vomiting and going from bath to bed I seriously thought about suicide..but since I love life..that wasn't a great idea..so I fought my Dr. to get back onto Norco, which I have used sucessfully for over 20 years. I have NEVER had a withdrawl from Norco, even when abruptly stopping it due again to mail and insurance..etc. I want to find a med that does NOT have the Tylenol in it..since I kinda like my liver and kidneys..but have not found a alternative that both me and my Docs like. I have a inplanted pain pump..which was "supposed" to help..just my luck it is faulty..and will have to be replaced if I want to try a pain pump again...to end this I would like to know of others who have had problems with KADIAN..as far as I am concerned it is the worse pain drug out there.
Hey CoraMegan,
Welcome to the boards! I miss Santa Barbara, I used to live there, and I miss everything about it. Volleyball at Goleta Beach, La Tolteca, UCSB water polo...:D Now I live where its pretty much always the coldest day in the nation, in the winter.
Anyway, sorry to hear about your accident, and maybe you can try what Im trying. I was on hydro for a few months, then the fentanyl patch and now my doc and I are trying straight Hydro. im still on the patch, as well. You can ask your doc about it, and Ill bet for sure there are pharmacies that make compounds there. Plus i saved a ton of money. i live in a teeny town, and found a compounding pharmacy, ill bet anything you can find one. Mine is about 4 hours away, but they send mine to me overnite for free.
All he does is write a script for the strength, ect and a lot of times they mail it straight out. Mine is 15 mg straight of hydro, w/ nothing in it. I cant take Tylenol, and Im the same as you. Id rather save my organs, Im only 45.
It cant hurt...I approached my doc the day after someone suggested it here in a post, and he was happy to do it for me. They can also make it short acting or long acting, i think. Anyhow, nice to meet you:wave:

Justin! I am speechless! Actually I am not allowed to post the words I am thinking rght now!! I am sooooo sorry for the treatment you've recieved, and I am also sorry to say it happens, I would bet that most people on this board has had more than one similar type incidents, and that is sad! I also think you are being run through a lot of drugs and shouldnt be. You said the Norco worked, only needed it during the day and it was the 10/325, that isnt bad at all and if you could get at least that until you can arrange to switch docs or establish some time/trust with the one you've got (if ya still want him).Then maybe in time you could get the compound hydro as your needs go up or when the time comes you should get off the Norco that has the tylenol in it. Plus if you could just get the norco for now it would give you the relief you need to fight for your rights, these **** docs get you all screwed up pill wise and in so much pain you are worthless and cant think then your STUCK with it and they rule every aspect of your life! Trust me I have been there too many times, get your norco that should make the doc happy and you relieved and STRONGER! then you can plan to get a good doc and someone who is compassionate and helpful not power hungery! Izzy's Mom's compound hydro is cheaper than mine (I just got lucky today) but not by much, as I look at it my pain meds are my insulin or oxygen, they are necessay for me to think and function and TRY to get back to normal and the hydro is the only med that does that for me, sounded like it was your only good med too.So for now just get OK and your norco will help you get there then you will have the power to get better meds better doc and work on getting EXACTLY what you need to go back to as normal a life as you can have, maybe a new normal but it HAS to be at least ok. Know what I mean? As you experience this "new" life with difficult experiences you will learn to deal with them better,fewer and faster, I promise. Plus you got all of us and our experiences to help you hopefully lessen the impact of your negative experiences and definately INCREASE the positive! Good luck and keep us informed! Oh ya you already know to keep us informed, ok, try and feel alittle better because we are all in this together! We got your back!:angel: :wave:
I think your right Justin, I just didnt know if you HAD to stay there. I posted on this thread on 2/13 "You said the Norco worked, only needed it during the day and it was the 10/325, that isnt bad at all and if you could get at least that until you can arrange to switch docs or establish some time/trust with the one you've got (if ya still want him).Then maybe in time you could get the compound hydro as your needs go up or when the time comes you should get off the Norco that has the tylenol in it.

Trust me I have been there too many times, get your norco that should make the doc happy and you relieved and STRONGER! then you can plan to get a good doc and someone who is compassionate and helpful not power hungery!"
I just kinda thought this would keep the doc's fears down (forget the PA) and give ya a chance to maintain while ya look for and get a new doc. I have friends from Texas (hopefully the Austin, Temple area) I will ask them for some recommendations for you and let you know ASAP. Just remember COURTESY AND PAIN RELIEF ARE YOUR RIGHTS ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE PAYING FOR IT (from a doc)! Take Care.:angel: :angel: :wave:
