How long can you stay on presidone? Safely???
Ok so I have been in alot of pain this year. And I am grateful that pain meds do work, however I hate every 4 hrs having to take it. Its a all day cycle that never really ends. And by mid afternoon Im so tired!! But it does work. So I went to ER for pain as usual bc Im in the process of getting to the neuro, and my primary cannot write anythg that work bc he is in a church, witch is a "free clinic". I have been offered the sterdoids before but bc of all the negative thgs I heard, I was afraid to take it. As you all know how the pain works, it contines to get worst and more parts of my body. You know you get to the point where you would try anythg. Well I got to that point. And it was the hardest drug I EVER took. For the first four days I felt like I had the flu. Was so tired but couldnt sleep. I went though so many things. However on the 3rd day I woke up with NO PAIN!! I woke up so happy in the best mood I have been in, in months. I felt like myself again, I could move, I could work. It was priceless. So now they are finished, and within 3 days I can feel Mr. Pain knocking on my door. Witch brings me to the question. How long can I stay on this miracle drug, with out it harming my body? I know that it really changes your chemisty, and hormones. And it also affects you immune system. But I have never had such relief, with less medicine, less often. I realize I cant stay on it forever, but does anyone is there a safe period? Or do you go on and off? And how does it work. And if the oral did such a great job, does that mean the injections would be good for me too? Thanks for your time and responce, Jamie
