    Plain old Excedrin helps me, but I can't take more than one tablet a day or I have some bathroom side effects.

    If I'm too achy, a half a hydrocodone tablet helps. That's all I can use in a day because more than that gives me a headache.

    I'm one of those people who react strongly to medications, so that's about all I use for pain. Also, I'm lucky as severe pain is not my main CFS complaint.

    When I have severe pain I take a combination pill that has magnesium and potassium in it. Take a tums for the calcium and a Musinex DM. It has to have the dextramathorphan. Works every time.
