@M1911A1;Sister, you and the Chief need to know that there are several other drugs which could be of some help, for chronic pain.
None of them is on the "prohibited-drug list."
But you need to see a rheumatologist (pain specialist), because they are all prescription-only.
Strange to say, even mere Tylenol can be helpful, if you take enough of it, often enough.
See a rheumatologist, please.
Friend, I cannot take those drugs your speaking of and I’m way to familiar with them and THEY WILL KILL ME. An RA doctor cannot help me, ask the past 7 in the past 10 years I have seen. I have Ehlers-Danlos, google it! 😊
The prohibited drug list was made by politicians, don’t have time to go there now. My body cannot take pharma drugs I’m allergic to them.
Thanks for trying to help, always appreciated when someone helps!
