Back Problems board


Hi guys :)

I will try and make this brief....just had my MRI done, as I posted on another post, I have 4 bulging discs, and arthritis. My GP had me on Vicodin 5/500 and Soma. These 2 meds worked very well for me controlling my pain.

My problem is this, my GP ref. me to my pain med doc. She put me on the Xodol, 10/300, which is supposed to be the same thing as the Vicodin but a little stronger........this med sucks.......sorry, but it does nothing for my pain, the other did so much better for me. Then she switched me to another Mus. Relaxer, this is the 3rd one I am trying and it sucks....she said she does not feel comfortable giving me the Soma. I have never hurt so much in my life..........this is so wrong..............anyway, thank you for letting me vent............ohhhh these doctors........are driving me flippin crazy!

Back to my question, has anyone had any luck with this med?

Thanks guys.....hugs to all :)
