    Hi,

    Do any of you have problems with one day your pain meds work really well and a day or two later they don't? I have this all the time and the doctors always look at me like I'm crazy. Right now I still hurting badly after taking a Percocet about 1 1/2 hours ago. Yesterday I felt good all day from the percocet.

    Just wondering........

    Thanks this website is a great thing to have!

    I use 2 different muscle relaxers. One day I use one kind then the next day (or week) I use the other.
    Sometimes I use one in the morning and another in the evening.
    I do that with my sleep meds as well. I keep changing otherwise my body gets use to whatever I have been using and then doesn't work.
    I think when you are on anything long term it is good to change every now and then, if possible.:)

    Yes, I have had this experience. My doctor has me on Morphine (a lower dose), which helps most of the time for my sharp pains (morphine doesn't help the achy pains). Last week I was in a flare for several days and the morphine didn't help me at all. Once I rode out the flare, the morphine helped more again.

    I guess we just have strange bodies.
