Customer Question

I am home bound and unable to immediately see my doctor. I've been diagnosed with CHF and degenerate disk disease along entire spine (Cervical radiculopathy). Consequently I experience frequent muscle spasms. I currently have a deep spasm on right side of L1 a bit below pelvis. Tizanidine is not relieving my spasm and pain is debilitating. How may I get a prescription of Percocet for pain and a few valium to help loosen this deep spasm?
JA: How long have you been using Tizanidine? Has it helped at all?
Customer: 4mg Bid daily for about 2 months (QD) for a couple of years) as a maintenance to minimize severity of spasms along spine. However occasionally this deep spasm hits hard and I need acute help to loosen it.
JA: Have you used anything besides Tizanidine for this?
Customer: Tiz. was prescribed to minimize spasms from neck to pelvis and normally controls issues.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have an ICD implanted and an episode of AFib a while back & type 2 diabetes.
