Extreme Back Pain

kls Says:

Any suggestions for something stronger than vicodin? It really doesn't work anymore. I take two 7.5mg doses every 4 hours 3 x a day and A LOT of motrin.

Wow! Does your doctor know that you are taking the Vicodin and Motrin?

It is really not good to be taking both of those. The Vicodin contains Acetaminophen and the Motrin contains Ibuprofen.

As to what else you can use for pain, there are many other options on the market, if the Hydrocodone in the Vicodin is no longer cutting it.

One option that would be stronger is Percocet, which contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone.


However, you may wish to cut down on the Acetaminophen, especially with the amounts of it and the Ibuprofen you have been using and the Oxycodone is also available, in several formulations, by itself:


You can also check out the various types of narcotic opiates here, so you know what to discuss with your doctor:

I have severe chronic lower back pain and take 2 15mg Morphine Extended Release tablets every 8 hours and 2 10/325s of hydrocodone every 4 hours. I went to my doctor and told him that the hydrocodone pills are not helping with the break through pain so he gave me Percosets, they are not working either. The last visit with him he said he really couldn't help me with anything else. Is there a stronger dosage of Hydrocodone (Vicodin) I can take or maybe something stronger then the Percocet.

Oxycodone works better than hydrocodone. Also, try vitamin D3, CBD (legal medical marijuana that's pure & clean with no THC), turmeric & weight loss. A round of prednisone now & then will help too.
