Re: Is There an OTC pain reliever that works as well as Vicodin?
Simple question, need some pain relief and the doc says no more Vicodin.

Is there an OTC pain reliever or OTC cocktail that is (1) safe, and (2) provides pain relief that will compare to the pain releiving qualities of Vicodin? I don't care about the euphoria aspect of it, just want the pain relief.

Thanks!

DO NOT GET HOOKED ON KRATOM, it's only sold online, it's expensive, you have to take ALOT of capsules to the equal of one dose of Vicodin and withdrawals are the same as Vicodin, IT'S TERRIBLE SND NOT WORTH GETTING IN TO. TRAMADOL IS NOT WORTH IT either, the side effects are the same as coming off of Vicodin and does not help with pain AT ALL unless you take in heavy doses then you are at risk of SEIZURES!!! You're best bet is to just stick with Aleve or Tylenol and if you're worried about withdrawal symptoms of the Vicodin talk to a pain management doctor and get help and get Suboxone!!!!! Please!!!! It's the best thing you can do for yourself :)

I've used Kratom off and on for 5 years and I never had a day or a week or a month where I felt I needed it. When your tolerance gets too high, you lay off it for a few weeks or whatever.

Additionally, I'd like to share how I deal with pain, besides Kratom when it's really bad. I have lower back pain, like everyone else. Nothing has worked except this stretch I do that is hard to explain. Basically, I put both hands on a table, locked elbows. Bend the knees slowly so that you transfer all weight to your arms. You're basically standing on the edge of the table with your arms. Slowly lean forward as far as you can and release all muscles except your arms.

This is essentially stretching your spine using gravity. You likely will even feel your spine "pop" some of the time. I think of it as a slinky. You stretch the slinky and it pops back into place, then slowly let it go and it's back to normal. Good day.

If your stuck with OTC only, then you cannot beat a large dose of ibuprofen and acetaminophen. If you can, a few ounces of vodka too. Seriously, this is the best you can get OTC. Huge dosages of the pills mentioned above will make a difference. But, start figuring out how to solve your pain long term such as surgery.

Poor russian farmers only had home brewed vodka to numb their pain from worn out bodies, and it worked to a high degree. Obviously, you cannot guzzle vodka and then go to work but at home, have a few ounces every hour.

Okay, let's try this again. I can't do the medical maryjane because (1) I'm in Texas and (2) my job won't allow for it. Same thing with the bourbon, not a bad idea but I am subject to drug/alcohol testing regularly so both of those are out. However, would a shot or two of bourbon with say, ibuprofen, increase the pain relief effects of the ibuprofen? What about Aleve, or other OTC pain meds? Are there some OTC pain meds that can be taken together, safely, that will increase the pain relief when taken together? Thanks, and thanks for the replies so far.

I used MM in CA for severe chronic back pain. It brought me back to life. Now living in IL waiting to get MM here. For now I'm using Tramadol 2x's a day, icy hot at bedtime and eating foods daily that are known for their pain relief qualities. Example: cherries, ginger, garlic. Find more by looking up foods that relieve pain. I hope you are finding some relief. hiding

You can buy Kratom at some Snook shops . I got mine in Pomona CA . Call smoke shops in your area and ask if they sell it . It really worked for me.

Hey there I'm going to tell you right away I can't see typos from the voice typer that I'm using so please be aware that will probably happen and it happened in the last sentence where it says died I meant to say why he died but anyways I hope that you read this and that you get what I'm hoping you get out of it I hope you get this message because I really truly think this might be the best advice you've got on this thing. I've been on vicodin aka hydrocodone for 2 years I accidentally dumped over and over a weeks worth in the sink one time and couldn't take it out because of the bacteria Actually it was just under 2 weeks worth because I had received Because I had received my prescription early two weeks prior to that or actually about a month prior so it was two refills back um they didn't want to give me any more early even though I could take pictures of them in my sink and prove it to them so I went two weeks almost without any of my prescriptions and I Out of an act of complete total crazy desperation not to mention withdrawals I went to the store and spent my last seven dollars on fair back and body extra strength not any of the other ones it has to be there and it has to be back and body extra strength or just regular back It has to be extra and it has to be bayer BACK AND BODY I knew in my head it was going to be this stupid thing I did with that $7 that was mine when that was all I had but I had to take the chance because my back muscles had almost completely seized up with my spine. I was almost unable to step almost unable to move I was about to be paralyzed and not have any meds or be able to do anything I wouldn't be able to walk crawl sit up step anything if my muscles all seized up. I had my muscle relaxer of flexeril aka cyclobenzaprine but without the pain being taken away they could not do their job. I bought that stuff and I went home and within 2 hours there was no pain at all whatsoever I almost don't even need to use my prescription anymore for that particular problem anyways I hope this helps I w ant you to know that I know that this sounds ridiculous I know that it sounds like there is just no way on earth that pill can relieve the kind of pain you need to promise you it probably can I have never seen something over the counter that directly to the pain away I cried in happiness
I promise you that what I have is not something that should be treated by over the counter drugs there's just no.. this problem was from severe abuse it almost killed me it's worse than most people to get working I cannot even barely do dishes without having to sit down I have a very very serious serious problem with myself and my physical abilities I am just able I do receive disability and my life is no joke sometimes my house goes on clean for a month and a half because I cant move or do anything this medicine is beyond any explanation it took it completely away it was I don't even know how to explain it I had my eyes were like wide open telling everyone oh my god this like you don't know what this did so I suggest you go out and you get yourself some of that they are back and body it's a little pricey but hey
that medicine that. are back and body took it away like the pills it was un freaking believable like it shock to me not only that but it took away the withdrawal symptoms too and that spoke volumes I reported it to my doctor and just everybody I was like why died shock

Re: Is There an OTC pain reliever that works as well as Vicodin?
Given that Vicodin has a codeine derivative in it - and a pain reliever like Excederin - the answer is usually NO. The tiny bit of codeine boosts and potentiates the OTC pain reliever in the drug. That is why it is effective in people who are able to take and benefit from Codeine. However those who are allergic to Codeine are usually allergic to Vicodin, too. Personally if you are going to use such a medication - you are FAR better off taking a real Narcotic and/or a dose of ibuprofen as needed. 800 mg of Ibuprofen and morphine or ibuprofen and oral demerol work quite well. The narcotic blocks some (not all, but major portions of) the pain, the ibuprofen takes down inflammation and swelling and relieves temps if you are running one. The combo is quite effective and doesnt knock you on your arse, either.

Don't use tramadol. The withdrawal even after 15 days use sucks ass.

Tramadol is the worst thing you can ever take for long term treatment. I just went through the worst withdraws after four years of taking it for my arthritis. The only reason I had to stop was this ulcer I developed last year has not healed. I felt like I was going to die for the first week. Good thing medicinal marijuana is about to become legal here in Florida. I was browsing here to see what I could do for my pain in the mean time.

Vicodin and all opiates are extremely addictive and will actually make you pain worse over time. Marijuana is safer but not for everyone. if you can exercise is the best thing.

That's four OTC 200mg tablets but I have a prescription for the 800mg single tablet. No difference.

NEVER EVER aspirin with either of those!!!!

In order for your body to regulate your pain, you MUST suffer it.

try to find some time for heavy exercise, running, etc.

You need to work hard for it, it isn't as easy as a pill.

We've tried aloe juice, which is a tremendous natural anti-inflammatory. Twenty years of stomach issues went away (quitting booze, helped a lot, too). Cat's Claw worked for us as well. I've found GABA to be a mood-booster and Yogi Tea "Bedtime Soothing Caramel" is made with poppies, which puts you in a nice mood for deep sleep. We've tried Boswellia and Bromelain, too. Black cherries are in season, as well. But for achey joints, sadly, the only real solution seems to be to get your whole frame sweating from exertion.

I didn't read all posts so if answere exists my bad.

What is your original pain prob.

I've taken v 10s for over 10+ years for super chronic headache.
5 Yrs 24/7 kidney stone pain. I had to stay in front of the aches.

I always ran out week 3. I have a high pain tollerence but most on this post know how inhumane the monkey on the back can be.

I did it all. Meditation breathing walking anything to kill this musclesketular physical problem

I watched a shark tank episode. Showed a yoga company wanting partnership. They introduced a crippled guy. Overweight on crutches and he came on stage ran did a flip and the splits. Wow

I youtubed yoga and headaches. Been doing 5 mins 3-4 times a day and I could tell an amazing difference.

I now take a half furring the day and more if needed and night.
I didn't run out this month. First time in years.

Take it for what you paid for it. Mine was extreme stress tension and fecaled on my life st physical walking and stretching three groups of nech shoulder and upper back worked.

Go to pain mgt if you still hurt. Tramadol is wus stuff with same monkey on back for zero relief 4 me.
