pain relief at night

October 23, 2006 at 11:14 am

Going back to work, even part-time will emotionally do a lot for both of you. My neurologist also prescribed Tramadol – for muscle pain. I find that the Gabapentin/Neurontin isn’t enough alone – even in high doses and the combination helps the pain as well as helping me sleep at night. If I don’t take the Tramadol ( Ultracet), I will wake up in pain about 3AM. A pain management doctor also prescribed 10 mg of an antidepressant to help with the sleeping. Now it is rare that I awake in the middle of the night in pain ( I only awake from my husband’s snoring – I wish there was a pill for that!).

Wishing you all peace and health.
