I have no problem with opiates, and use them when necessary to deal with chronic pain, but my wife, who suffers from ongoing acute bouts of intense pain (several times a month) rather than persistent daily pain, gets nauseous and ill when she takes anything that is opiate-based or derivative (hydrocodone, oxycodone, buprenorphine, etc.). She needs something strong when these attacks come, just to function, but since she is highly sensitive to opiates she doesn't know where to turn. Neither do I.
I am looking for some type of prescription pain killer that is not opiate in any form. Does anyone know of anything??
