Pain Relief Overview

An analgesic, or painkiller, is any member of the group of drugs used to achieve analgesia — relief from pain. The word analgesic derives from Greek ν-, "without", and λγος, "pain".[1] Analgesic drugs act in various ways on the peripheral and central nervous systems. They are distinct from anesthetics, which reversibly eliminate sensation. Analgesics include paracetamol (known in the US as acetaminophen or simply APAP), the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ...

I have read all the posts and found that the best way i found is on the 29th of aug i talked to the pharmacy manager and explained the dilemma i was facing and she told me just to transfer all my other scripts to her location and then drop off my oxy script and methadone and that they would order them for me if they were out.Bam ten days later i got a call yesterday that they had my script filled and to come pick them up.Hope this helps those having problems getting their meds filled.Good luck and god bless. ## That was actually a very good idea, because pharmacies are usually allowed to be more lenient and helpful to their regular customers, so by transferring all of your prescriptions to them, you basically made yourself a regular customer.

what are side effects from mixing hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 with oxycodone
3 Replies RSS
What are the side effects from mixing hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 with oxycodone acetaminophen 5 325? ## I have mixed both but not taken at the same time a few hrs later I may take one and I have had no side effects although I have been on both medications for years so my system maybe used to it. ## It is virtually doubling up on the same medication, so you really should stick with one or the other. Mixing them creates a much easier risk of overdosing, either on the narcotics or the Acetaminophen. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Has your doctor prescribed them both? ## What is it exactly aectehicmine codine syrup what is it for

Lyrica does work

Lyrica does work for myself. But I started having side effects. Double vision, being tired all the time, confusion, didn't even remember my age and that might be a good thing. But the drug is awesome for taking the nerve pain away. Just pay attention to side effects. Cindy ## Mu husband was on Lyrica for 30 days until he started experiencing severe side effects, i.e. dizziness, chest pain, weight gain, double vision, confusion, memory problems, tiredness. He was admitted into the hospital with the chest pain, in fear he was experiencing a heart attack. He has been off Lyrica for 3 weeks now and is still experiencing nausea and dizziness. How long did your symptoms last after discontinuing the med? He is getting very discouraged. Resa ## I had an orthopedic surgery on my ankle 8 mont...

Fake 10mg hydrocodone Compare pictures
5 Replies RSS
"Here" is the link to a picture of mine (left hand side) and the same one I found online next to it. The one I have is on the left. The one on the right is a picture I got off of the web. Every single picture I could find online looked the same shade of yellow and had the same font as the one in the left. Besides the different appearance I can tell a difference after taking the yellow V(on one side) 3601(on other) versus taking the white "Watson 853"(all on one side) which I have both of at the moment. I posted on photobucket the one I have and one from the web side to side. When you compare them mine is a slightly darker shade of yellow. It is also very lightly speckled with dark spots. The spots on them almost look like they got there from being in someone's pocket...

a peach pill with 3605 on one side a v on other side
104 Replies RSS
i have a teenager i found an oblong peach pill with 3605 on one side and a v on the other side help ## The pill which you are describing is Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone (325 mg - 7.5 mg). Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone is a combination of two types of pain medicine to treat moderate to severe pain. For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## If you "find" pills and do not know what they are for, it is best to flush them and walk away. If it isn't perscribed to you, leave it alone. Addiction is a vicious cycle that often ends in death. Is losing your life worth a high? think about it.... ## Stephan, she's worried that her kid is using the pill. She can...

morphine dr?

Anyone know a good Dr in Utah who can prescribe opiate meds? My husband has verybad bbulging and herniated discs in his back, arthritis in his spine and fibromyalgia and usually takes 60mg morphine e.r but since moving here we can't find a Dr that will fill his RX they all want him to do physical therapy when it doesn't work... ## Hello, Buddhagrl! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. He might be creating part of the problem himself, if he's calling doctors or going to appointments and asking them to prescribe this medication. It is a highly addictive, controlled substance and most doctors will view that as being drug seeking behavior. What he needs to do is set up an appointment with a pain management specialist and make sure that they g...

Specifically and Correctly writing a Norco/Percocet Script
Post a Reply
Hello. I have a doctor who I have seen for a long time who writes has regularly written me scripts. Sometimes it is for norco and then sometimes the next month she will do percocet. Both are 10/325 everytime. The question I am asking is how can I ensure that the Pharmacy will have the specific Noroc/Percocet that I am looking for. For example, sometimes Walgreens will have the white Watson 853's which I don't like. Sometimes the CVS will have the white A333 Percs which I do like. Is there a way my doctor can specify on my script which brand/manufacturer she wants to perscribe?

Hydromorphone came up as oxycontin ua
2 Replies RSS
My UA at the my pain management Doctor's office came up positive for Oxycontin, but I am prescribed Hydromorphone 4mg x 3 & Hydrocodone 10/325mg x 4 - why is that? ## Hello, Marie! How are you? Unless they use an actual certified one, which most don't due to the expense, then false alarms are actually very common. Most narcotics are distantly related and produce very similar metabolites in the body. They should be able to send your sample out for more precise lab work that would eliminate that issue. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Marie, I hope that this is not cau...
