    I am on knee surgery and have been really strung out in the past on hydrocodone and oxycodone. That said the meds were somewhat effective still I cannot get them any longer. I read a lot on these forums about dihydrocodeine, codeine and tramadol . Are these the most effective non oxy/ hydro based drugs? I have been in a lot of pain in recent years and really need something stronger then the prescription strength parracettamol I have on hand. Thanks,

    Lucyinthesky.

    I vote for alcohol as the best non-narcotic pain reliever. Not every day though, don’t want to ruin your body, or your mind.. Drinking lots of water helps your kidneys, and eating veggies and high quality protein is generally good for you.

    Tramadol is the most potent non-opioid pain medication. It works like a mild opioid and antidepressant at the same time (inhibits reaptake of norepinephrine and serotonin in the brain). carisoprodol also works well for many types of pain. It produces muscle relaxing, pain relieving, and to some extent anti-fever effects.

    Pain anywhere in the body is very sore. Sometimes it can cause serious trouble at some point in our lives. Foremost medical specialists don’t recommend opioids for all kinds of pain. They prefer other than opioid pills rather than first.

    I’ve definitely had a lot of success with Tramadol myself, but I make sure not to over do it

    My experience of hydro wasn’t nearly as dramatic or hardcore as yours Lucy, but still, I know what you mean. Being denied medical care when you are seriously in need, is traumatizing. People in this world can be so cold. Keep strong you may not feel it now but time will heal your wounds that is for sure.

    The modern approach to pain management often involves combination therapy that attacks it from different angles. Getting back to normal life after surgery is always tough due to the pain and other mental trauma! Getting the correct meds with the proper dose will eventually take you to the peace and path of healing!
