Marty- You are absolutely right. 4000mg is way too much for someone with kidney or liver function problems. NSAIDs burn a hole in my stomach. Have you tried vioxx? 50mg once a day took the EDGE of the pain off for me and made (maybe it was in my head) the V much less fun. Wish I could invent something that worked. sorry.
Lynn- The minimum amount of tylenol in perc is 325mg. I can be much higher than that depending on the brand etc. AT 325mg and 20 percs per day thats 6500mg of tylenol. Re-read what I wrote above. not good. what makes the difference in your day that causes you to take 20 as opposed to 2?
Joanne- I'm a sissy too. My average (when I have them) is 2-6 vics per day. I think one reason I am able to finally put up with the dope sick is I have no more. My suggestions above are only what has worked for ME in the past. Everyone is different. I also have the threaght of losing my licence if I am caught obtaining drugs illegally. I worked too hard to let that happen.
Keep trying everyone! wish me luck too.
Are you on antidepressants? What kind of pain do you have?
i got a hold of some 10 mlgrm methadone. if i use these, say, 3 one day, 2 next day, 1 for a day or two, then 1/2 then off, will it work?
You know, codeine doesn't work the best for me either...but compared to having NOTHING they work great. If you ever feel the need to get rid of them - let me know. I'd be more than happy to be pain free for a couple of days.
