Pain Meds

Now that Vioxx is gone, are there any new drugs in America that help pain that is probably similar to carpal tunnel or arthritis (but, is neither)? It's in my hands, from using them improperly over the years. It hurts when I pick things up, almost as if my middle finger is being Click here to enlarge...and there's twitching.

Tylenol Arthritis isn't working at all. Ibuprofen works, but I can't take enough of it to keep the pain away.

Are you taking Glucosomine/Chondroitin? (sp?) DH says that after a few weeks it really does help.

There are some new nerve drugs that can be used along with traditional pain meds. I know that a lot of people from my pain management groups use combinations of medications like antidepressants and some other off label stuff. Can you get into a pain clinic? They really have the best knowledge off medications and how they can work best for you. Some are just pill mills but there really are some great ones that mix meds and other therapies to get you the best care.

I'm sure there will be others on to give you some more pointers.

DH is actually using prescription strength Aleve (Naproxen) and had good luck with that.

I'm really liking the pain control I get with occasional Aleve and my antidepressant.

/end my POV.

I don't know...all my Dr. suggests is Tylenol...you could have an arm hanging off in this country and they give you Tylenol. I was looking for something different in the USA, but there's soooo much advertising for stuff my head spins reading the promos.

Celebrex and Prexige are both newer, safer arthritis drugs but if it's not arthritis I don't know if that will help you.

Celebrex is in the same class as Vioxx and works the same way. I would not take it, personally.

There are many, many prescription strength NSAIDs, talk to your doctor about trying some of those.

Pain interrupts our work, our recreation, and our relationships with our families. Comfort, that is, not being in pain, is one of the goals if a person becomes sick, and treatment by a health care professional for an illness associated with chronic pain is another goal.
