All she wants is narcotics, are there any other medicines for pain that are not opiates?

Dear StressedOut,

Glad to hear you will be talking to the doctor later today. I hope he can provide you with more options.

I know opioids are very addictive. I hope you can find the right balance for your mom. I'm not sure if she needs another type of therapy either physical therapy, massage therapy or gentle exercise.

Please keep us updated. Take care.

You really need to talk to the doctor who prescribes her pain meds. She may need pain management.
