Back Problems board


I have tried, Flexiril and Skelaxin....which of course are both muscle relaxers, neither did anything except make me feel really funny, almost like a out of body feeling...and sleepy...groggy........Was on Keppra... it didn't do anything for the pain, and made me loopy and sleepy, and seemed to make my head hurt.... Then on Neurontin....it gave me horrible headaches and my blood pressure increased.. so they took me off it....of course I felt sleepy most of the time when taking it, and it didnt do anything for my pain.....Was also at one point tried on Ultracet. 500mg.... it didnt touch my pain..... Now my PM Doc has perscribed a drug called Zonegran... it works on the same line as the Keppra, and Neurontin.....and from the beginning I have been taking 5/500mg Vicodin 1-2 tablets every 6 hrs... as needed for pain...... I really dont know how much the Vicodin does for my pain, because it knockes me out, so then I don't think about the pain... obviously....but of course my doctor told me thats the whole basic idea of the Vicodin, it doesnt actually work to relieve the pain, it works in your mind, to basically make you not think about the pain...So hopefully one day we can all find what works for us... and we can all be pain free...Take Care... :angel:
