Hydrocodone for Moderate Pain

I have taken hydrocodone for back pain and arthritis for a few years. I've also taken hydrocodone post-surgery. I find hydrocodone to be a wonderful drug for moderate pain. While hydrocodone doesn't erase all the pain, it makes an arthritic flare manageable. Hydrocodone also makes my back...

Meloxicam for Oestoarthritis

I am currently taking meloxicam for osteoarthritis. I don't have a long history with this drug, but I've taken it long enough to know a bit about its efficacy. My dosage is 7.5 mg once a day. All things considered, meloxicam has been a good drug for...

Using Clindamycin Post-Surgery

Ibuprofen Is A Helpful Pain Reliever

I've taken Ibuprofen, both OTC 200 mg and prescribed 800 mg, for many years. My experiences with this drug have mostly been OTC, but in the last two years my doctors has prescribed the 800 mg dose. I find Ibuprofen to be one of the most...
