    Ok im asking for some support today! Latley had some bloodwork done and liver panels came back highley abnormal! this happened last winter so my Dr. took me off the antiinflamatories.................................................later rerun of bloodwork came back fine! so now it was ok to take 1 pill a day (anti) 750mg's! so i followed those instructions with no problem!..............................But now after recent blood work there has been a drastic cut in pain meds. and the 1 (anti)! I know it's for my liver Health but i also know that the pain level is going to be out of control!! if i do anthing other than lay around!....................................just makes me really sad that this DD is so unpredictable and just when you think that your doing ok then something eles happens!

    Don't get me wrong i have nothing against taking less pain meds! so far i'm doing ok with the first cut of Darvocet 100 mg 3 times a day ! and the anti! But now she has cut my other pain med in half also!..............................Tramodal from 8 tabs a day to 4 tabs a day! half to go back in for another blood test on the 3rd of Aug!......................................I'm just frustrated!! and need someone to talk to! thanks for your time!..................................sisland

    Did she say this is a permanent cut back on your pain meds? By Aug. 3rd you will know how the cut back is affecting you so you'll have to tell her.... jeez I don't understand these docs, makes no sense to me. Wish I could help you more!

    Hello
    I Have been on Tramadol for many years, It's a genaric ultram. But yes the word from the nurse is no Tylenol-no aasprin- so i think what is happening is that I had to have my Gallbladder out about 14 years ago ..............................and now my liver does all the excreating (sp) But any way if we can get by with taking a lower dose then thats all the better for liver health. I think your fine with that dose!

    I just worry about winter when the temp goes below 40 degrees! i really need the antis- and the davocet!......................oh well life goes on!! thanks for your concern!.......................sydney

    There are pain meds out there that contain no tylenol but I'll be darned if I can think of their names right now. Maybe do a post asking about them??? I sure would so you can be armed with all the info you need when you see her on the 3rd!

    Is that with a long O? That is how my name is pronounced. Mama found it on a tombstone when she was 8 months along... true story....

    Anyway.... wishing you well and hoping the bottom doesn't drop out AFTER your appt. on the 3rd which has happened to me many times.
