My wife & I seem to have a host of meds laying around the house. With her being in the medical profession, it's quite easy for us to get our hands on samples of virtually anything. I've also had chronic lower back pain for a number of years, & my wife has had some sort of degeneration in her rotater cuff so there's always something (tried in the past) laying around, and sometimes those drugs help; Cataflam, Ketoprofen (similar to Ibuprofen), Ultram, & even Ativan (similar to Valium), Skelaxin (a muscle relaxer). Did any of these actually work or did the activation time coincide with the length of that headache? There's no thelling. I've yet to find a replacement for Imitrex, but I can use more than my insurance company thinks I should have, in a month's time. I find it interesting that in my case, NO drug seems to work at night except Imitrex, and that none of them are effective with repeated use.

On another note, is O2 found at the welding supply shops as safe as medical O2?
