    How much pain med will doctors give you per month for fibromyalgia ? Can you post what he writes and how much ? My doctor gives me 30 Vicodin per 2 1/2 months for now.

    I didn't realize you are still on the vicodin. Are you still having pain from the hip replacement?

    I have a friend who had her knee replaced which is "supposed" to be a more complicated procedure and she was only needed to take the vicodin for two weeks. After that tramadol and then just the ibuprofen/Tylenol.

    Hope things are going okay with your hip. Makes me hurt just to think about it.

    Take care.

    Are there any medications that would help with pain and inflammation? I know you don't usually like to go that route, but just a thought.

    It's just amazing how soon a person can recover from something like that. Do you get physical therapy or is that recommended.

    How much/what strength etc. totally depends on you the patient, your history, pain levels and your Dr.

    I don't understand how your Dr. is writing your script. - what it says.

    I've had a script written for as much as 8 vicodin per day (the max on 5/500), or Norco, 12 per day (which is 10/325) - 325 mgs of Tylenol. That doesn't mean I needed that much everyday but my Dr. would always write for as much as I was allowed to take. Of course this wasn't how it started out.

    I do think it started w/3 per day or 90/month
