... How well do the transdermal gels work to reduce pain? ... (9 replies)
... Thanks for that warning. I have been alternating the cream and lidoderm patches. I had just sent for a 90 day supply of the patches (at 3 a day) when I found out about the cream, so I have quite a few on hand. Maybe I should try to continue with that practice. The patches work ok under my shirts during the time I am at work, but the cream works much better at night, when... (9 replies)
... I was put on a lotion of Ketamine, Amytryptiline and another ingredient which I forget. Worked like a charm and kept the burning pain away for 4 hours. Trouble is I went on vacation and wanting to be as active as possible, I used it every four hours and became extremely allergic to it. Got terrible rash which mad the burning all the worse. We tried to reduce the dosage but... (9 replies)

... Daylily - Ugh! Don't you hate it when they change insurance companies on you?!!! Drives me crazy. The employers are just trying to save a buck and don't seem to give a #[email protected]* about the employee's health. :nono: What really drives me nuts is all the TV commercials for health insurance carriers - why do they even bother advertising their plans when the vast majority of...

... Lefty, the pharmacist at the 90 day mail in my insurance uses is great working with me on this. He said there are any number of "bases" they can use. He said that most compounders get used to using a certain one and so they stick with it. He said since they are a large place that does larger quantities (90 days at a time) they have multiple bases. If your insurance has a 90... (9 replies)
... Daylilyfan - Thanks for the info - I will ask my PMD about contacting a different pharmacy that will use the lipoderm base. That would make a huge difference for me if the base could be a lotion instead of an oily gel. Thanks Again! - Lefty (9 replies)
... Lefty, Mine has the addition of the ketamine, which I would really recommend to you. Perhaps the additional ingredients that mine has that yours does not is what helps me with the muscle pain and deeper ache. Mine also comes in something called a lipoderm base - the first place I got it at it came really creamy, sort of the consistency of cake icing, but not sticky or... (9 replies)
... I ocassionally use a compounded gel of Amitriptaline, Neorontin, and Lidocaine for the burning sensation on the skin of my arm/hand. It takes a few minutes to work, but does help to lessen the burning skin sensation. It doesn't do anything for my "deep" bone/muscle pain. The only problem I have with it is that it is mixed in a vaseline-type base. This means that I have to... (9 replies)
... My pain doc ordered a cream for me that contains Amitriptyline, Bupivacaine, Gabapentin, Ketamine, Ketoprofen and Lidocaine I am very happy with how it works. It seems to take about 45 minutes to an hour to work. I do not have the "sensitvity" type pain.... so I do not know if it helps with that. What I find it helps me with is pain that feels like a muscle that has... (9 replies)
... My family Doctor put me on Amitriptyline, it really helps with some of the pain. I take that and I wear a lidoderm patch... helps me sleep at night. I affaid to take alot of the other meds. (9 replies)
