I can tell you something you may not be aware of. My doctor gave me Loritab (generic version) and an anti-inflamatory (sp) for my lower back pain. The x-rays determined I had pinched disks and a curvature in my spine. The pain pills relieved the pain, but the other tablets seemed to do some healing. The two medications in combination worked brilliantly. I also had a lot of chiropractic work done and I am now pain free and free of both of those pills.

[QUOTE who="????"]ultram[/Q UOTE]

Ultram is way too strong for simple back pain. It may be one of those "extended release" pills that will addict quickly. Tons of side effects also. I wouldn't recommend them. Consult your doctor.

i take ultram and it isn't too strong and it isn't addictive, isn't for me anyway. i take it when i really need it and not otherwise. i take it maybe once a day and sometimes not even that often, it is one of the only things i have found that will help with my pain.

Ultram is NOT a strong drug. It's usally given insted of Lortab because most doctors don't like giving out the stronger stuff.

Ibuprofen is good for inflammation. Mobic is a good arthritis medicine as well. Aleve which is over the counter. They work miracles.

How old are you, if you don't mind me asking? Seems like there's an awful lot of back pain going around these days to people who don't do a whole lot of work.(not saying that's you..just in general).

I had surgery on my back going on 4 years ago, but before that...I lived with back pain for many, many years. I camped, worked, moved things, split wood, raked leaves, cleaned my house and worked out. Was I in pain? Yes...but I went to the chiropractor, got adjusted and gave it a week or two (sometimes 6) to heal up.

People...we don't need pain pills for everything. People are so afraid of a little pain....you want to live a pain-free life? Get real! It's never going to happen. Stop the madness with the pain medication, PLEASE...for your own good and the good of your family.

If you have some back pain, take some ibuprofen. Something back there is swelled up. The ibuprofen will reduce the swelling. Put an ice pack on it..sleep with your knees bent. That means put some pillows under your knees.

Once the pain stops, that means the swelling has gone down. This may take a little bit to happen but after you REST your back then you can put some heat on it to heal it.
Ice reduces swelling and heat heals. Trust me on this. I did it for years.

Did I eventually have to have back surgery? Yes...but I did cruel and inhuman things to my back when I was young. I did stuff I shouldn't have done all in the name of exercise...but I made it til I was in my late 40's and finally I gave in to surgery.
I am now free of back pain, but it does flare up every once in a while. It has taken a while to get it to the place I can really exercise, but I am now able to do moderate exercise.
Don't get hooked on pain medication. You'll never get enough of it because you'll have to increase it to higher levels.
It's best not to start it at all.

I have tried several types of pain pills, tramadol was a good one it worked and it was non- narcotic, I was sent to a pain clinic and the results were horrific, they had put me on hydrocodine it worked but then they switched me over to oxy-codine which is street name percocet, this stuff drove me crazy!!!!! I became very irratable and disoriented, then they gave me some benzo type pill that made me cry every day!!!! My advice to you is to get a non-narcotic pain pill, the others will drive you crazy. I am having a hard time getting off this stuff..........just saying

Pain clinics need to be shut down. They are bad. Just like what you said.

to all of you people who act like no one needs pain meds....try a chronic condition (one that doesn't stop) I have had degenerative disk disease and arthritis in my back for years...tried chiropractic, physical therapy, ice, heat, sleeping positions, tens unit, back brace, etc. and guess what it still hurts, every day, all day, for over 10 years...I've always been the happy easy going type, but when I caught myself questioning if life in pain every day was worth living, I knew I needed to be on something. It's not the pills that people like me get addicted to, it's the breaks from the pain.

sometimes otc just won't work. i would much rather take tylenol or advil if it worked but nothing like that helps. needing prescription meds for pain doesn't make you an addict, some people know how to take meds without becoming an addict

I don't think nobody is downsizing someone with legitimate, chronic pain...but seriously...there's not THAT many people in your shape.
Pain clinics are making a killing off people who have a little ache. Young people shouldn't have chronic pain...they haven't lived long enough to acquire it unless they've been in a terrible accident and how many fit that criteria?
