The problem with taking Loratab (hydrocodone--also known as Vicodin) is that your body gets used to it. So the longer you take it, the less effective it is. Ask your doctor if he can prescribe a different pain killer. I go back and forth between vicodin and Percocet for my migraines since after a while the vicodin just doesn't really help. I wish I could help more. I know how hard it is to be in pain and not have your pain medication help. Good luck.
I have very bad pain. It is geting worse. Pain that is. I hurt myself 5yrs ago. I broke my ankle very bad. I had to have my little toe taken off to. It put more weight on my other leg. So I'M on Loratab 7.5. My Doctor say's it will get worse. The pain is so bad sometime I CAN'T SLEEP. Anything I can do? YVONNE
I have chronic pain with my fibromyalgia, and have tried all I can for the pain, I think I finally have a combo that works, i take cymbalta for the derpression and pain, and Lyrica for the constant pain, they recently put me on muscle relaxers, but haven't noticed a benefit, so sorry you are hurting, let me know if you need more help. I would say if you are on that med for 5 years, you probably should switch for a bit, since our bodies seem to get use to it over time.
Hi...I just started taking, "Concentrated- Cherry Juice"...It has healing properties. It is Anti-Inflamitory.....High in antioxidents.....helps with head aches and artheritis.....I get it at the Meijer store up here where I live. It's probably at other food stores too. You take two table spoon fulls. Or eat about 6 cherries a day...I've read up on this stuff. You could try. I'm not sure on real bad pain...But it's natural.....I'll also pray for you, that the Lord sends you healing lights...cyndi
If you are in a great deal of pain then you really need to go and see a doctor for what ever it is hurting you. I am sorry that you are hurting.
Well go and ask your doctor when I had a tube in my stomach and my appendix taken out I got oxycotton and it helped out alot but I advise you ask your doctor
Lortab is like vicodin.....kinda weak move to percocet, but that is a stronger opiate and will be addictive eventually moving to oxycontin, even more addictive and troublesome!
