Riddle me this? How do two doctors send a diabetic home with steriods for an undisclosed condtion? And never did they mention and changes I might need to be aware of, being a diabetic. Not to menation, the fact that they couldn’t figure out or even consider psorisis now that I have learned more about it, it’s pretty common. I’m not a doctor and I wasn’t aware of this disease. What I have become aware of, is if you catch it early you can take steps to minimize the breakout hence pain. I’m considering taking further action.
On the day of your facet joint injection, DO NOT TAKE any short acting “as needed” pain medications such as: Percocet, Roxicet, Roxicodone, Oxycodone, Oxy IR, Vicodin, Lortab, Norco, Hydrocodone, Lyrica, Immediate release Morphine, Dilaudid, Codeine, Propoxyphene, Darvocet, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Naprosyn, Naproxen, Aleve, Tylenol, or any other over the counter remedies for back or neck pain.
WHAT IS OKAY TO TAKE: Your regular long acting pain medications such as: MS contin, Morphine ER, OxyContin, Oxycodone SR, Oxycodone 12 hr., Avinza, Kadian, and Methadone. We do not want you to be skipping these because this can cause withdrawl symptoms.
