Doc prescribed Tylenol#3 for pain as needed. Thought it was an unusual choice. Anyone else use it? How did it work for you?
I haven’t heard of using Tylenol 3 for Fibro pain. Please do let us know if it helps.
Hi Sam. I know my doctor tried me out on several meds in the NSAID family that Ibupofin is in but they didn't knock out the fibro pain. I believe that fibro pain is from the nerves and requires meds that target that area.
Oh shoot, wait, you're taking Tylenol 3 for fibro pain? That kind of sounds like using a bird's feather to move a bowling ball. How is it working out for you? I am quite interested to know. I hope it helps. But don't lose faith if it doesn't, as there are other meds your doc may try.
Yes my Doctor prescribed it for me and three days later I went back and told her we need to try something else. She put me on Norco and it was a much better choice for me.
I find any med impacts you to be constipated so you should change your diet. Before I had tramadol and tried that for a while but did not do much to help with the pain.
I have used the Tylenol 3 once so far. Didn't help much. Made me sleepy. I am trying a new doc in July so I think unless I get a bad flare I will wait til then. I don't know if it's worth trying to get something different from the current doc with a new doc appt coming up.
