I use Aleve or it's generic naproxen, it works well for me. Tylenol hasn't ever been effective for my back pain, or really anything for me.
My doc recommends staying away from Tylenol in general because it's in so many things. That way there's not too much risk of overdoing it. Like Annette we keep it around for my husband as he prefers it.
My first draft was very sarcastic and calling her to task for taking someone else's Rx. Then it turned into an editorial about how this is an example of why the drugs are over-controlled and difficult to procure by chronic pain patients.
I was really on a roll, but decided I had jumped to too many conclusions and posted the generic response you see above. Maybe I should quit reading the webmd boards on insomnia nights.
Please contact the provider who prescribed the hydrocodone for the back pain. They will be able to answer your question, as they already are aware of your underactive thyroid. (I'm assuming the hydrocodone was prescribed to you for this back problem.)
You're not kidding, that sounds like a corporate spokesmodel warbling over there. My husband has D-2 and I've used sometimes, especially early on, and it was very helpful. But now the tone has changed.
Well I don't think anyone will argue with you about leaving this landfill. If anybody finds a new home, let us know. Or should we start talking about building our own discussion board?
