Prescription medicines are available over the counter in most countries, you can buy some truly effective drugs like Tylex 750 outside the USA.
Warning: If you do not read Wikipedia for hours, do NOT leave the USA to take medicines, you need to be savvy, and use common sense. I believe less than 5 percent of the population is available for this great alternative to getting raped by Doctors and Pharmaceutical companies in the USA.
One of the GREAT reasons to visit another country outside the USA
Buy expensive and great drugs cheaply, without a prescription, and no need for a Doctor to rape you on cost.
I have Sciatica, the solution to do prop up exercises, stretch the muscles so they do not push, and lose weight.
But, But, But, But --- I need a way to have 1-2 days of relief from torturous pain, therefore for the last 2-3 months I have been trying everything from 600 MG Ibuprofen to Celebrex to T.E.N.S. Machine -(I am carrying one, cost 45 USD in my backpack.)
I have tried about 20-30 different pain medicines now, most do not stop the pain, and yes, a good Doctor could nail this faster, at 90-125 USD per try. I am paying about 2-3 USD per experimental drug.
I have injections of Cortisone or Steroid to take, but it is hard to hit the hip joint or correct place, there are 3 different pains, and it is not a fun procedure.
Tylex 750: Co-codamol (BAN) is a non-proprietary name used to denote a compound analgesic, a combination of codeine phosphate and paracetamol (acetaminophen). Co-codamol (or Tylenol w/ Codeine as it's known in the U.S. and Canada) tablets are used for the relief of mild to moderate pain when paracetamol (acetaminophen) or NSAIDS such as ibuprofen, aspirin or naproxen aren't enough alone.
Having fun becoming a Drug Addict, or emulating House MD.
Remember, and do not forget, the Solution to Sciatica is: (I am having an episode that has lasted for 2-3 months.)
The solution to do prop up exercises about 20 time per day, stretch the muscles so they do not push the nerve, and lose weight. (That lose weight probably stops 4 out of 5 of the Savvy, so only about 1 percent of the population is going to benefit from this overall travel tip.
