carpal tunnel help
I have been on gabapentin for a week know not having any relief. Doctor prescribed it for carpal tunnel. Any suggestions for me need some relief fast unable to sleep due to the pain. Thank you! ## Hello, Bella! How are you? Gabapentin is not an analgesic, so it will not work that fast to help with pain. It is an anticonvulsant that can help with some types of nerve pain, due to the way it acts on brain chemicals, but it will take about 4 to 6 weeks to reach its full efficacy level in your body to see if it will help you. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Actually when taking gabapentin you will get pain relief both immediately and as it builds up in your system. I got this information from bo...

Does anyone know a pain Dr.that prescribes methadone in kansas City, Kansas. I a m fighting to save my arms and legs and cannot function without my medicine. I have 9 weeks to find a Dr.before I need more medicine please help. ## Hello, Petrified! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you'e having.

i was on subutex 8mg and ive been reading about these new subutexs with the 8 and the arrow on them. i got a different kind there zubsolv 5.7 mg/1.4 mg ? i dont understand is one of these pills equal to a 8 mg? there small white round tablet imprinted with 5.7 on the front? ## Subutex contains just the narcotic Buprenoprhine as the active ingredient, so an 8mg tablet of it contains that much of the Buprenorphine… Where the Zubsolv is actually an equivalent to Suboxone, because it contains the Buprenorphine (in this case 5.7mgs) and Naloxone (in this case 1.4mgs). Learn more Subutex details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. So no, they aren't equal to the 8mg Subutex tablets. This medication is a narcotic opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause s...

diffrent doses of oxycodone
which is stronger oxycodone-acetaminophen 10-650 mg oroxycodone 15mg 1mm rel?and are these same as generics you get because if insurence? ## The 15mg immediate release contains 15mgs of Oxycodone, it is the generic for OxyIR. The other one you mentioned contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 650mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Percocet. Thus, in reference to the Oxycodone, the immediate release one is stronger, however, which one is better for you depends on what condition is being treated. If your condition involves swelling that is contributing to the pain, then the one with the Acetaminophen will be more helpful, since it can help reduce inflammation. Side effects are similar to both, since they both contain Oxycodone and may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constip...

where can I find methadone in columbus OH
Where can I find a doctor in Columbus Oh that will prescribe methadone for chronic back pain? My doctor gives me percocet but it just doesn't help. ## What other medications have you tried? And what is the dosage of the Percocet? The reason I'm asking it because Methadone should really be the last resort medication, for several reasons. The first is because there are other stronger and safer options available, such as Morphine or higher doses of Oxycodone. Learn more Morphine details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Another is due to the fact that Methadone is so very highly habit forming, so most people never get off of it, even if they're just using it for pain. Learn more Methadone details here. ## I take percocets 7.5. I go to a pain management clinic and that is...
