herniated disc

For you guys who also have herniated disc, what do you take for the pain?  My dad has it and I’m not sure if his pain reliever is helping him.  I wanted to ask that so that when we take him back to his doctor, I can talk to him about your meds and maybe get my dad a better med than what he’s prescribed to.  Thanks.

First off, what’s he taking for the pain?  I had an herniated disc in my lower back and was prescribed ultram.  Excellent drug in helping me manage the pain.  I take 50mg for every 6 hours is enough to get me through the day.  For very bad pain attacks, I take 100mg.  This, at least for me, is the best pain relief drug, it makes me feel “normal”, and it gets me in a great mood.  Do talk to his doctor for a better help.
