Thanks for the correction on that one. I will ask my pain doc about Phenergan, Norflex and Ketamine transdermal.

Yes, unfortunately, I am VERY tolerant. I weigh about 180 (5'7") and the 300mg Demerol did not even PHASE me!

> Gabatril is not a neuroleptic, it is actually an anticonvulsant. I would highly recommend a neuroleptic (Phenergan would probably be the best choice, because it has very little propensity to cause dystonia, and it is one of the most studied for pain management).
