    What do you find works for pain medications? I have taken different ones and nothing seems to work only for a short time.

    carol62:
    Percocet and Elavil for me with the option of taking Ultram once in a while: all depending how I feel. Less pain, less meds, more pain, more meds.

    thing for me....i have been on different pain medications the last 10 years...some work for awhile and when they stop i try something else....you name it i have tried it.

    some people are lucky and can stay on one or two for years.

    you didnt explain how bad your pain is?
    do you work?
    what are you taken?

    Is what I take for my FMS, the other conditions I have call for Pain Meds. and they take care of the FMS Pain signals too.

    I am curently on Norco10mg, 6 a day, and Soma, 4 a day, Vistril , for the Histamine problems that can come with the FMS. It also, boost's my Pain Meds. and I think that is why, I have been able to stay on this moderate dose of Pain Med.s.

    I am Never without Pain tho, and I just work to get them at a reasonable level, so I can still get up amd move around. That is so important, for us also.

    Hoping you find something that will help you too.
    Wishing you Well:
