Namenda/Pain meds

July 22, 2009 at 12:00 am

Hi Linda – It does help to have some humor when we are going through so much. I did see my internist yesterday (actually she is the physician assistant to my internist) and she has not heard of the Namenda for nerve pain, but she is sending me to a pain management doctor and she said maybe he has heard of it. She did give me Vicodin and said not to take them every day. She put me back on Cymbalta, but at a lower dose. I tried it before and it helped, but the side effects were terrible. I had a lot of sweating and dry mouth with it. I see the pain management doctor at the end of the month, so I am interested in seeing what they do for the pain. I do hope your still going good with the Namenda. I’ll keep you posted about the pain docs. Hope you have a good day tomorrow and remember to laugh, it’s the best medicine. Sometimes when you are in pain, the last thing you want to do is laugh. I now have a light at the end of the tunnel, which is comforting. I watch Joyce Meyers a lot and I get a lot of chuckles from her. We need to have a format for funny stories to help lift us up. Well, that’s it for now, will keep you posted. God Bless.
