So it's helping!11 Wonderful for that, but not so good for trying to stay awake.

i've only had penicillin twice in my life. 2nd was way worse than the first. i dread to think what a 3rd time would be like.

hope you feel better soon carek.
Thanks, I am feeling better. This antibiotic I am taking is a strong one, and the Dr called in a refill for another 5 days just to make sure it kills off all bacteria. I don't know if I want to go another 5 days though. The only thing I noticed is when I take it no matter if on an empty or semi full stomach, my stomach gets this burning sensation for about 20 mins then it goes away. And my scalp is itchy with some red spots along my hair line. This happened with a real strong antibiotic I took for ear infection years ago. I have taken penicillin and have no allergy to it. That's a scary story Angela....hope you're OK.

The coughing is getting a wee bit better today so I do feel on the mend. I slept better last night.

What's the pain patch you've got, Doozer?

it is helping me sleep. the pain is still pretty intense but at least i am not waking up in the middle of the night. and the nodding off happens alot so i am not sure how long i am going to use the patches.


The patch is a 25mg Duragesic.

Here is the web info:

The DURAGESICĀ® (fentanyl transdermal system) CII patch is a strong prescription pain medication for moderate to severe chronic pain that can provide long-lasting relief from persistent pain.

Through its innovative patch technology, DURAGESIC delivers fentanyl, an opioid pain medication, into the body slowly through the skin, where it works to relieve pain for up to 3 days (72 hours).

Oh wow, that sounds intense. I wouldn't like that nodding off feeling during the daytime. Too bad you can't just use the patch at night. If I really have trouble sleeping I usually chew 2-3 Melatonin tablets about 1/2 hr before bed or when I climb into bed with a book and never fails I nod off.....or I will take Tylenol PM or Excedrin PM. I don't like sleeping pills, I've not found one yet that doesn't leave me feeling groggy the next day and they make me snore real bad.

despite having the arthritis, i have never been one to give in to the need for pain meds so that tells you how bad the last few weeks have been. even after i filled the prescription i was still unsure about using something so strong but i needed something. i have a month supply but i don't know how long i will use them even though it indicates it is not for temporary use.

arthritis sucks, I feel your pain. I have it really bad in my left ankle and foot and my knees are getting bad along with my upper back. Why does this happen to us?

thanks for the hug, Karen. it's just a way of life for me except when the pain is as bad as the last few weeks. alot of which is stress induced.

They do work well. They are a small white minty chewable tablet. Remind me before my trip and I will bring you a bottle!
