am currently on tramdol, lyrica, slow release patches for pain and antidepressants. hI live in cronic pain all day everyday, am hoping that there will be a pain killer that comes along soon that doesn't stuff me around as much as what I have been on and now on. have tried so many different things on the market nothing gets rid of the pain just subdues it a bit. I try to keep as active as I can without overdoing it which is really hard. I had a problem with oxycontin was taking 12 a day plus 8 panadine Forte and still working 80 hour weeks driving road trains, spoke to my doctor about getting off oxycontin wanted to put me in hospitial to dry out, that if I cant stop taking them while at work I would be bak on them as soon as I started to do anything. so went cold turkey and kept working, I was then put on the slow release patches. still in pain doctors say to put up with it and get on with your life.
