Suggest Treatment For Osteoarthritis
Further details needed
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The provided list of medicines contains drugs given for various reasons; they are not for pain alone. Meloxicam, toradol, demerol are pain medicines whereas flexeril is a muscle relaxant. The other medicines are not pain medicines. Before commenting on whether a combination is reasonable, I would need to know all the complaints you have and the ailments that you are being treated for. Based on that I would be able to suggest which combination is most reasonable to take.
I would await your response. Let me know if I could help further.
Meloxicam - osteoarthritis pain & inflammation due to osteoporosis (congenital) & KFD
Toradol - same
Demerol - same + 17lbs of steel in spine from T3 down due to severe scoliosis & car crash
Flexerill - chronic muscle spasms due to multiple major surgeries
Following is your answer to my daily meds & ailments they treat:
Zoloft - anxiety & mild depression
Maxide - water retension, congestive heart failure
Lasix - congestive heart failure
Protonix - severe GERD
Florastor - colon balance to manage ulcerative colitis
Synthroid - hypothyroidism
Zantac - GERD & allergies
Allegra - allergies
Singulair - allergies & asthma
Zyrtec - allergies
Claritin - allergies
Mucinex - to thin excessive thick mucus
Symbacort & Flovent - asthma
Above are the only meds I need to use with any regularity. However, if there is a disruption in the conditions these are prescribed to treat, I do have prescriptions for meds that are prn & they are as follows:
Zofran - nausea due to GERD and/or anaphylactic allergic reactions
Epipen - used to counter analphylaxis
Dexamethasone - same
Prednisone - same
Benedryl - same
Mesalamine - ulcerative colitis pain
Rhinocort, Nasacort & Flonase - inhaled allergens, sinusitis & inflamation
Pro-Air - asthma attack
The medicines need to be taken
Thanks for the clarification. It is evident that you need to take these medicines for the various medical conditions that you have. The combination seems fine. Let me know what specifically do you seek to know from me.
Meloxicam, toradol, demerol are pain medicines that you take. Ibuprofen (another pain medication) or meloxicam and Zoloft have drug interactions as there may be an increase in the risk of bleeding. But with the others I do not see any such risk with the mentioned medicines. You therefore have no reason to worry and can continue with the latter two.
