My new neuro took me off Demerol, which I have been taking for close to 9 years without any side effects. He told me he doesn't like it. I finally asked him why and he said there is a mineral in it that can cause seizures. I think by this point that if I was going to have seizure it would have happened. I looked it on WebMD and it is says "Tell your doctor immediately if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur: severe stomach/abdominal pain, seizures, change in the amount of urine." I have never had any of this. So he first put me on time released Upano, one tablet pm time released. Didn't last. So we switched to time released Oxycodon 2 times a day, helped with pain, but my stomach did not tolerate it. Now I am on Vicodin, doesn't last, stomach sick. Have any of you had problems with pain meds? What do you all take?
