I have been having major problems with muscle pain that is unbearable due to being run over by a car and a torn ACL. Also, work related pain due to lifting heavy trays I also have arthritis. I've been taking brand name Soma which helps with all of my pain until they put me on the generic which make me so sick to my stomach, I can't stand it. Doctors won't prescribe the brand name because they say it's addictive. I've been taking it for years and find it not to be true. I've tried so many medications and none have worked. I'm 69 yrs. old an I need some relief. Can you please help me get back on my brand Soma?
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I'm not allergic to any medications. I take gabapentin,, depakote,and aricept. I've tried oxycontin(sent me to the hospital) vicodin(makes me sick) Hydrocodone
(makes me sick) So I guess I could say I am allergig to all pain medications except the Soma. I'm in so much pain I'm going to the hospital almost every week for a shot of morphine-witch doesn't work. So I need some serious help. I live in a small town and no doctor will prescribe anything because of the new laws. I need some serious help and I'm not getting it here. Good god,I'm much to old to be a junkie! I take that-no on is too old to become addicted.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I think that covers it. Other than the chronic pain I,m a really healthy. Oh, I have a very mild case of COPD.
