After numerous surgeries, including 4 cervical spine surgeries, it got to the point that the only way to reduce the pain level was to take large doses of narcoticts. Not long ago I was taking 96 mg of Dilaudid and 100 mg of Methadone daily plus about 8 others Rx’s. Got a morphine pump and soon added prialt. It took months to get off the oral narctoics and my brain is still not producing certains chemicals which cause many different problems. Got the Prialt level too high and had lots of side effects. REduced the prial to about 3.8 and mixed it with dilaudid. This has been working well the last few months for the chronic pain in my neck, shoulder, and arm. The pain in my right hip (from piriforis surgery in 96) has been slowly increasing since starting the prialt.
I can say that prialt is the only rx I ever took that relieved severe pain in my cervical spine. I went from an average of 6-9 down to 3-5. Has been a GOD send. Do have side effects but the benefits far out weigh them.
On a side note I take Toradol for kidney stones. the shots work the best andit much more effective than narcotics.
I would love to hear from others that are taking Prialt or that are thinking about it. Feel free to send an eamil. due to my situation I usually check my email about once per week or two. so if you want a reply remember it may be a few weeks.
Also would like to find updated information about prialt, side effects, studies. etc.
I look forward reading my replies. GOD speed and never ever give up.
