    I went to a new doctor today, first new doc I have seen other than the rheumy that diagnosed me.

    My Rheumy had me on the following: 2 tramadol 50mg, 3 hours later 2 darvocet 100/650, 3 hours later 2 more tramadol, 3 hours later 2 more darv and so on throughout the entire day! and ambien CR @ night. This is the latest concoction.

    Ambien CR is still working for me.

    The new dr said he agreed it was way too much tylenol in the darvocet. To stop taking the tramadol and the darvocet and he gave me 180 Norco 10's per mth so I can take up to 6 a day.

    I really liked him, as I was seriously concerned about the meds I was on with the tylenol and they just werent working anymore.

    So hopefully I will have more pain relief soon!!

    I am thinking percocet might work better than norco for my type of pain, Im sure he will add if need be next month. To me, percocet has more of a relaxing effect than hydro.

    Did you take hydro? Which do you like better?
