I'm sure we've all tried about a zillion different pain meds, prescription and non. What all have you tried? Which ones worked at least a little? Which ones didn't work at all?

Well- I don't think the advil, tylenol or Ibroprofen work at all....I usually have to resort to vicodin, percocet and somas. Although, TTC, you can't really take those last three- so I will sometimes grin and bear it with heating pads and hott baths.

I agree about the over the counter stuff. Right now Vicodin usually works but my last two period have been so painful even that didn't work. I absolutely love Ponstel. It's just an anti-inflammatory but it actually worked when two darvocet didn't. It also lightens your flow

Percocet, hydrocodone, dilaudid, soma, and tramadol is just about all the works for me.

Percocet is the one that works the best. I've been perscribed Vicoden, and had Morphine and something stronger that I forget the name of in the ER for it though.

They tried to give me morphine, just a small dose, and as they were pushing it with saline we were watching my arm swell and turn all blotchy red, as I'm trying to say I can't breathe. THAT was an experience. The worst part is that no one understands endometriosis so eventually anyone who has endo eventually ends up being treated like a drug seeking addict.

I've had morphine once and it wasn't pleasant for me either. I felt like I was having a heart attack and couldn't breath. I forgot about tramadol, it works too if I catch it early enough.

It is really sad that we all eventually end up getting treating like addicts. It makes me so angry

Me too. Everytime my pain is unmanageable at home my GYN's office sends me to the ER and the ER has it noted that I can't have ANY narcotic pain medication. If I went in there carrying my head under my arm, the wouldn't give me anything.

Does your doctor know they have that on your record? Mine would go ballistic. I've been lucky so far, he's been on call every time but one that i've been. His office is in the hospital.

Advil always did wonders for me. The 800MG kind. I responded pretty well to anti-inflammatory drugs. Aleve worked okay. Tylenol DID not work. I feel like I got some prescription drugs but I don't recall the names of them.
