Meloxicam and Codeine
1 Reply RSS
I am on Meloxicam for arthritis in my hands and codene for restless legs and pain. Can they be taken close together or how far apart? I have had IBS for 40 yrs. I am 82. Please advise. I take one oxycodone at night when I go to bed and it helps me sleep and kills the pain. Never take more than one. I also take one Meloxicam for arthritis during the day if I'm really bad with my hands. Please advise. ## They can be taken together, as long as your doctor approves and has prescribed them both. The FDA warns that the Codeine carries the risk of being habit forming, you may also experience side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Are you on any other medications?

Meloxicam, Tylenol Arthritis, Tramadol

I have osteoarthritic hips and run a restaurant, I am on my feet 5-6 hours a day. I currently take meloxicam 3-4 days a week with Tylenol Arthritis. I need something stronger, would Tramadol 50mg be a better choice? Could I take them both in the morning safely? ## Tramadol is classified as an opiate, by FDA standards, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. As to your other question, it depends on what you want to take it with? I'm sorry, but your post wasn't clear. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you!

I'm in chronic pain please help me. I have SEVERE arthritis, and have a 5 yr old back injury. ## I was also in a car accident, broke my teeth, suffered bruises and lacerations, had a painful hip replacement, another one on its way, and am living in chronic pain. I have been to my insurance, gone through the song and dance of getting a primary, who will not prescribe hydrocodone for the bilateral hip pain, or other residual pain. I am also undergoing the very painful reconstructive dental surgery to remove poorly placed implants that rub constantly up against my remaining infected implants causing me excruciating pain. This is chronic but I hope to be getting them removed. I am considering medical tourism since my insurance doesn't cover implants. They are considered cosmetic. I ...

I ended up at the ER thinking I was having a heart attack. So I didn't take the last two pills of my dose pack. It has now been a full week after my last dose, and I am still struggling with insomnia, nausea, dizziness, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, heart pounding and high bp. I feel better in the evenings, but then it starts over in the mornings. Does anyone know how much longer these side effects will last? Does anyone have a similar story? ## Has anyone else have this problem with lingering side effects? Can you share how long? ## Hi Fed Up - I have had almost the exact symptoms as you except I also had insomnia while taking the pack. (Almost no sleep for 3-4 days.) I finished it though. I had my last one 3 days ago and since then I have gotten a bit more sleep, but now have...

manteca de ubre
14 Replies RSS
what medicational reasons is it used for. ## Manteca de ubre ## Does anyone know the ingredients in this ointment? Is it manufactured by Germa? ## On Amazon I found some Germa Manteca Ubre Plus 3oz. Kind of hard to come by it seems. Is this the same product you're talking about? ## Manteca de Ubre is used for sore muscle or muscle pain. I used it recently for muscle pain from a fall. I missed a step and landed on my legs and ankles. I spent one night quite uncomfortable. I rubbed the Manteca de Ubre last night and slept like a baby. With other stuff I have used in the past it takes about a week or so to make me feel comfortable. This only took one night. ## I used it a long time ago for an infection I had on my toe, under the nail, I put it only one time, at night time and the next ...

I started taking the medication yesterday and took 6, today i take 5, then 4, and 3, etc so for 6 days total. I am taking this along with Augmentinj 875 mg, every 12 hours. I have had a horrible sinus/ ear infection for at least 3 months and haven't been able to taste food or smell anything. Body aches, headaches, horrible anxiety and terrible fatigue. Mid day yesterday I started feeling so much better, my sense of smell came back last night and I cried. I enjoyed dinner so much I could finally taste food. I've never taken this medication before and was afraid to google it. Upon looking I see many negative things. So far I have had a great experience with this steroid pack and wish I would have taken it sooner. I hope my symptoms don't return or i have withdrawals. I'm a...
