I’m a long term migraine sufferer and have tried just about every prophylactic treatment there is, beta blockers, Botox, you name it. I have never had any luck. The ONLY thing that helps with my migraines are triptans and sometimes excedrin. Don’t buy the migraine version of excedrin, it’s more expensive and same active ingredients as plain excedrin. Also don’t use on a regular basis because it will cause rebound headaches. Eletriptan is my favorite triptan but I also use imitrex sometimes. The bad part is insurance limits how much you can have per month. So I alternate between the two.
    GD how much do I HATE insurance companies??!?!!??? Just imagine a world where you went to your doctor, then to your pharmacy, and (assuming you even have insurance) they just pay their part of the cost, huh? What a socialist, crappy system that would be, where insurance companies couldn't step into the middle, take their $$ cut, and, oh yeah, decide whether or not you could have the meds your doctor wanted you to have?? Ugggggghhhhhhh!!!

    @calgal99
    Sorry for the reply over a year later. I was involved earlier in the thread, but I guess I lost track. I filled a prescription which was a topical ointment, and they filled it, but the papers stapled to the script said “Plan Limit.” This was a tiny tube marked 15g. I said to myself, wow, this must be some expensive stuff if they are only going to pay for one tiny tube. It is like a quarter of tube of toothpaste. So, out of curiosity, I looked up the price. I expected it to be north of $700 - $800. Not at the pharmacy I used, but at others on the web, the same size tube was under $15! I guess I should be happy, but WTF? They won’t refill a $15 med even once. I have a relatively low dose of a popular pain killer. Can you believe they will cover it if I take the version with Tylenol, but if I want the same med, without the dangerous Tylenol (I only say dangerous, because I take it 3 times a day). So if I don’t want to take 500mg x 3 of Tylenol every single day, I have to pay for the whole thing! And even though it is a generic, it is a lot more than the $15 tube.

    Between the insanity with squeezing doctors (this is a pain specialist) to not give pain killers for more than a week, the pharmacy told me it is “back-ordered.” I asked what time are we talking about. They told me “it could be a week, it could be months!” Obviously I can’t just stop taking it, so my doctor was nice enough to re-send it to another pharmacy. My state is all electronic prescriptions. Nothing, even non-controlled meds are sent by electronic prescription. It is a pain in the neck, because if it is out of stock, you don’t have a paper prescription to take to another pharmacy. And the big name chain cannot even transfer anything controlled to another of their own stores!

    Also, my daughter has to take a schedule 2 medication. The pharmacy that I have been using for 20 years filled it once, but the next time I needed to fill it for her, they flatly said “No, we won’t fill that.” It had nothing to do with me. I know all the pharmacists, and the assistants, etc. and have a great relationship with all of the staff. They just made a decision, at the corporate level, to not bother. I was able to fill it elsewhere, but same hassle with her doctor having to resend it to a different store. And it was not one of the demonized meds. It wasn’t even a pk. These pharmacies are starting to get the same pressure that the doctors are getting.

    I know with my pk’s, they start to ration them, and towards the end of the year, they have problems getting certain meds. I don’t understand the thought process behind the government forcing manufacturers to stop making meds, and create shortages. I would never go on the street for my med, but I know people that would. They are really helping the problem. We are not talking about 80mg 0xy. It isn’t even any size 0xy. The dosage is so low, I used to get the same med from my dentist! The whole system is going off the rails. Sorry for the rant, especially so much later, after the thread sort of stopped.

    I thought it was worth posting that if you jump through all the hoops, get numerous MRI’s (all with large deductibles) and have a doctor that will help with chronic pain, now you have to deal with the pharmacy hassling you too!

    I can recommend a couple things for pain. Corydalis extract for one, its not probably going to take away all severe pain but its very good for mild or medium pain and it also helps you go to sleep. I always use the crystals which are more concentrated. About 1/16 tsp is all you need, maybe less. If you get the 10x or 40x which are weaker, just use the amount they tell you. I use a tiny spoon of crystals might be 1/32 lol. Besides that there is california poppy, said to help a bit, there are a couple others I can't think of at the moment.

    Its not sold locally you have to look online. I got mine from ebay but the morons who run it ban stuff all the time so no telling if its still there or on amazon. Look for corydalis online if its not there, crystals are best because the less concentrated stuff doesn't taste that great.

    Gullible, I just want to say a quick thank you- I checked out Corydalis on your recommendation and have been taking it about a week and I can see some improvement.
    It's not like a huge sweeping wave of relief (God, don't we all wish for that feeling?!?) but it does help take the edge off of mild to moderate pain.
    Thank you for sharing it with us!

    Edit to add: @Dosbabe, I found mine on Amazon. Good luck and I hope it works for you.

  7. Hello, hello! I can't take NSAIDs (like aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen, etc.) because of stomach issues. I can't take opioids or opiates because they make me feel crummy. (Small doses of codeine DO help immensely, but doctors aren't writing it much anymore.) So, I take Tylenol. And every afternoon I take 4 teaspoons of Everclear mixed in 7Up. 4 teaspoons. No more, no less.

    It helps as much as anything else....

    I had never heard of corydalis,had a quick search and one said, "Corydalis as a remedy for fibromyalgia." If that is true I'd like to find some,any sites where you can buy it?It could end up being seriously helpful for some of us denied regular decent pain relief.

    @brandnewday

    Hi there!

    1 of the very best non opiod pain relievers I've ever had, still use, is Toradol/Ketorolac but only in the injection form... The oral form is no better than Advil or Aleve but the injection.... oh my it's like magic!!

    The thing w/this med is you can only have an injection like 2x a month.. Some docs won't scribe it for self injection use at home because you can destroy your liver if used too much but if you have a good relationship w/your doc ask him/her to give you a shot the next time you see him/her.. You'll feel relief pretty quickly. If you like it you could ask your doc to give you or call you in a script for some so you can give yourself a shot at home.

    The thing w/this meds is you have to inject it into muscle & the medicine burns, but only for like 10-30seconds.... I've had this by iv & in various muscles all over my body. The least painful place to get or do the injection is your butt muscle, kind of high up near your hip..
    It's not hard to give yourself the injection either. You just load the syringe, wipe the area w/alcohol & let it dry then quickly poke yourself in the bum & push the medicine in slowly...

    I have severe chronic pain of several kinds body wide & because of something really bad the a surgeon did to me w/o my consent or knowledge I now also have migraines to add to my list...
    Compounding my fun physical/health issues is the state I live in which is the #1 strictest as far as scribing pain relief or benzos... Everyone was basically made to go completely off or downgrade to things that don't work well for severe chronic pain... When all I had to worry about was my spinalchord injuries/surgeries the med was fine as long as I had the Toradol injections & diazepam. Together the 3 meds worked synergistically & helped all of my symptoms... But now I can't get the adequate amount of the pain reliever or the diazepam so I have to help myself.
    I do get the injections though, thank God... I would be a flat out wreck w/o them. If you need an emergency back up to have on hand Toradol/Ketorolac injections are AH-MAZING!! And, they are just a very strong anti-inflammatory so not even in the opiod class of meds at all. Docs are just Leary of scribing it because yrs ago the NFL got busted because their docs were shooting up the players way too much & too often, resulting in many of them having permanent liver &/or kidney diseases.. So let your Doc know you know this is just an emergency back up for you to have at home. If he'll scribe you 2-3 a month or a box of 10 every 3 months, that would be great.

    Also, I have my doc give me a shot every month when I go in for my monthly visit so I can save my home stash as much as possible.. It comes in different strengths & I get the stronger one which is a 60mg in a 2ml vial... If your Doc will let you have this ask the pharmacy for the thinnest gauge needle that will work for an inter muscular injection into your bum muscle.. The needle doesn't hurt going in but I'm a weenie & have a lot of scar tissue buildup in my body so so I ask for the thinnest gauge so I don't get too grossed out...

    If you have any ?'s about this med let me know. It has been a huge life saver for me over the years, esp now when all docs won't scribe regular pain meds... I also alternate Advil or Aleve on the inbetween days but remember you absolutely cannot take any anti-inflammatory like Advil/Aleve 24hrs before or after a Toradol injection & you definitely can't take any when you get a shot...
    Hopefully you'll get a few days to weeks of relief from these injections..
    On a very rare once in a blue moon occasion if I give myself a shot & am not doing any better w/in 24 hrs, I will give myself another injection. So 2 injections in a 48hr time slot. Sometimes if I have to do a 2nd injection I'll only use 1/2 the vial so 30mg's/1ml. This seems to do the trick!

    Anyhow I wish you the best of luck in finding something that helps you. I hope your Doc will give you an injection of this & if you like it, he'll allow you to give them to yourself at home! I've never tried anything that works as well as a Toradol injection that's a non opiod, it's that good!

    Happy fall! Take care,
    SP
