Well everyone is different, but I think they are wonderful. I get them from a compounding pharmacy. You do need to refrigerate them. The first couple of times I used them I found them to be a little irritating but that went away. I've been told they do get into your system, but I can't feel it.
They don't make me sleepy or affect my mental state in anyway like oral Valium would. I don't use them every day, just when I need to. I hope they help you. Make sure you PT is someone who understand how to relax the pelvic floor- some pelvic floor PTs only know about kegels which won't help you at all. Gift HB25 an upgraded membership! I had them belladonna but ended up returning them. I would recommend perhaps not using them if you are starting PT. The therapist will use your pain as a guide to identify problem areas.
The PT was amazing for my pain. My PT would identify trigger points, which is essentially the most sensitive area within a larger area of pain - I never knew such an area existed. It's just a small spot usually. She would put pressure with two fingers on that very sensitive and painful part for about 1 to 2 minutes, until the pain disappeared. Once it disappeared, she would press harder for another minute or so, which was initially painful again at the beginning but the pain would fade after the minute passed.
Then she would remove her fingers and whala! In between appointments I could get my husband to do the same if I had pain. Eventually the pain goes away for good. But if you mask your pain with drugs, I think maybe your therapist would be at a disadvantage. I can't say enough about the good PT did for me. I would hobble my aching self into the PT office, not even sitting down in the waiting area because it hurt too bad to sit, and 1 hour later I would skip out of that office kicking my heels up.
I don't know where I'd be if I hadn't had PT. Gift DaisyDukes an upgraded membership! I have the Valium suppositories and they can be a life saver on days when nothing else seems to help. As OP said, they come from a compounding pharmacy, and the ones ,y dr prescribes are 10 mg Valium and 50 mg lidocaine.
It says on the bottle that it can make you dizzy or drowsy, but I have used them for a couple of years and never had a problem and I am very sensitive to medicine. I suggest taking it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before using it, as inserting a suppository straight from the fridge will really wake you up! I am in pelvic floor PT fo the second time.
Last time I had a very hard time tolerating the therapy and the PT told me to use a suppository before each session to try to make it easier. This time my PT hasn't gotten to any internal,work yet, but has said she will want me to use the, for that too. So I would just let your PT know you have them and ask what she wants you to do. I hope the suppositories and the PT help! Gift 9pets an upgraded membership! Thank you ladies for your replies!
I've used two already, and I can definitely see a difference! Thank you for the helpful tips! I have a good tolerance to meds, so I don't feel too drowsy, but relaxed and no pain! I'll be starting PT soon, once the office calls me. Ready to start and get back on the road to recovery!
