  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: None
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I don't know how this treatment got put under the "depression" treatment category. I can't delete that although I would like to. I ONLY use it sparingly for Fibromyalgia and I find even a small dosage causes a headache which rather defeats the purpose. Not as useful as it was before.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Breakthrough pain: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: My liver enzymes soared, most likely due to a reaction to Cefdinir (an antibiotic) so on the advice of my doctor, I eliminated as much meds that contain Tylenol as possible. We switched from Hydrocodone to Oxycodone for that reason. I think it was in January 2013, but I'm not 100% sure of the date.

  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I only take it on the REALLY bad days, when the pain is so bad it makes me cry. It doesn't help a lot, but takes the edge off. It helps me sleep better when the pain is very bad. I won't take it if I have to drive, so many times I can't take it when I'd like to.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain in lower back: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 4 x 325 mg-10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I don't recommend regular use of this medication. It is highly addictive and only moderately efficacious in relieving pain. I learned this the hard way, as I had a doctor who hated seeing me in pain and she encouraged me to take up to 4 a day. Back in 200- 2005 I often took 2-3 a day, for up to 3 days in a row, more when I was in bad shape, until I noticed how stopping taking it seemed to exponentially increase my pain. These days I take it VERY rarely. I can't remember the last time I took more than 3 in one week and usually I go weeks between needing any at all.
Cost: < $25 monthly
