  • 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 Migraine headaches: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain in lower back: Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: This one caused cluster headaches and rebound headaches. Be sure to let your doctor know if you are having trouble. I knew it was going to cause this issue but the doctor insisted I try it her way. I had to balance if I wanted to deal with the headaches and ease the back pain or to suffer the back pain to prevent the headaches. Sucked either way I did it.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Migraine headaches: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain in lower back: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Since I have started taking this medication again I have started getting the rebound headaches back plus now I can have a continuous headache for up to 4-5 days. I now have to decide on weather I want relief from my back pain and being able to be up and do thing to taking the risk of getting these headaches which in turn can keep me in bed fighting off a possible migraine. Switching the relief of one pain to a maybe that I will have a different one to contend with and decide which one is the worse one to deal with and keep me from trying to live as normal a life as I can. I also have to pay over twice the amount for the pain medication as I did for the oxycodone. With out any income this is a greater burden on me to come up with the money. I am disabled and can't work and have no income.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • 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.

Advice & Tips: I believe I may have developed a tolerance to Lortab and it does not work as well as it might have in the past. It helps tremendously for pain and I take as few as I am able 1-2 a day typically. Frequency depends on activities. It is helpful when I struggle with diarrhea because it slows my bowel down. I notice no impairment whatsoever and can function fine.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Stomach upset
