Avelox (moxifloxacin) as an antibiotic (5 pills x once per day)

Tramacet (Tramadol + Tylenol) as a pain killer (30 pills total)

I didn't get much of anything. The pain killers helped, but they weren't all that strong. The antibiotics were a necessity haha

I was prescribed the meds below and needed all of them. I'm a big wuss! I took Robaxin before my surgery and I still take Robaxin on occasion for my pinched nerve. I'm sure my pharmacist had a few questions for my poor husband!

-Robaxin 750 mg

-Xanax (1) had to take the night before

-Pepcid (1) took the morning of

-Percocet 325 mg had to get another prescription :/

-Keflex 500 mg antibiotic

-Zofran for nausea took the morning of

1st BA-

Lortab for pain
Antibiotic (I don't remember what, maybe Keflex)
Phenergan- anti-nausea

2nd BA-
Emend (anti-nausea) right before surgery, not prescribed but given before surgery. I had the option to decline.
Phenergan or Zofran- Anti-nausea. I don't remember which.
Vicodin- pain medicine
Percocet- pain medicine. I paid to stay over night in the hospital the first night. I was prescribed percocet for that night.
Flexeril- muscle relaxer

Also purchased arnica at my preop appointment.

First BA I wished for a muscle relaxer. Second BA I was so incredibly glad for the muscle relaxer and the pain medicine.

1) Prochlorperazine 10mg (anti-nausea)

2) Cyclobenzaprine 10mg (muscle relaxer)

3) Cephalexin 250mg (anti-biotic)

4) Hydrocodon-Acetaminoph (pain)

5) Senekot Extra Strength (constipation)

I only took the anti-biotics and one Senekot pill when I got home. No need for pain meds, muscle relaxers, or anti-nausea med. Easiest recovery ever! ; ))))

Vicodin for pain. Took one day of surgery and 3 next day then switched to Ex-Tylenol.
Valium for muscle soreness/relaxation. Used day after surgery, then quit.
An antibiotic - not sure which one. I took all of those.

I was lucky to have little pain, just tightness. I was able to ice, and did that frequently.

Flexiril as my muscle relaxer which was my savior. Only drawback was it made me EXTREMELY irritable. I got vicodin but hardly used it. I actually saved most of my supply for recreational use. Lmao! And also Zofran for nausea.

Tramodol 50 mg (took 3-4 of them, made me sick to my stomach each time)
