drugs

I was wondering does any one know what drug would be safe to take for pain, I am in 7 th day of detox. from hydro. and had surgery just about 4 weeks ago on my elbow. and I def. still have pain. I have been taking meloxicam (antiinflamitory) and tylenol , some times about ready to scream, pain can be pretty intense some times. They fixed my tennis elbow so they where scraping my bone and cleaning cartlidge. So you can understand alittle of it.

My daughter offered me a darvecet I told her no!  Any suggestions?

thanks so much ,

None are safe to take.  You run a risk of addiction with all of them.  Go Over the Counter meds and stay there.  Opiates are bad news, even Darvocet.

Darvocet can be very addictive and is of little pain relief value.  That is the truth.  Try something else.   I am so impressed with your post --- I can almost guarantee that you will make it ---- I can always tell by an addicts willingness to do the hard stuff --- flush the pills and cut off their supply -- you have done both which tells me that you WILL make it -----  What you did was awesome -- you are taking a stand and making a statement that the pills will not continue to control your life --- Yes, it may be hard but you will be prepared.  Please keep posting Sundance -- You can do a lot of good for those who come behind you.   All the best.

Ty ,

This was my first attempt and God willing my only, I flushed over 50 of them down the toilet and my Dr. hasbeen informed by me of all of it. He will not be writing any more scrips for them. I figured my point of view was even tho the dr. wrote a scrip for 240 pills a month to me and yes i said 240 a month for over a year and alittle under that for over 2 years. I had to take responsability for my self to do this. I just pray that all can do what they need to do to have peace. I woke up one day and said enough.

So do you think Darvocet is ok? or what is some of them that is ok. So I make sure my dr. is not giving me something to screw me up again. I swear they get kick backs LOL

I think as long as you stay away from Opiates you should be fine.   There are quite a few OTC meds and also some prescription med that are non Opiate -- i.e. Lyrica, etc.  Congratulations on Day 7 -- that is awesome ---  You are through the worst of the W/D's and will probably only have to deal with a lack of energy for awhile.  Hope you will stay away from the pills -- each time you withdraw it gets harder to do it.  All the best.
