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, and include paracetamol (known in the US as acetaminophen or simply APAP), the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

norco 375 10
In Georgia, can my Dr call in a prescription for Norco 375/10, or does it have to be written? Can my Dr put refills on the prescription, or would I have to see the Dr monthly to get another prescription?

Which is strong 15mg MS Contin or 15mg Oxycodone
I wonder what the difference is between 15MG MS Contin vs 15 Mg Oxycodone. Is there a substitute for MS Morphine..I take 2 30mg MS Contin twice a day and also with that I take 15MG MS Contin twice per day..which of course is 45mgs at a time..with 3 15mg Oxcodone for breakthru pain. I was taking 20 mg Oxycontin 3 times a day etc. But my insurance wasn't paying for the oxy. So what I take now is paid for. Do any of you have any suggestions of what would work better for the pain..since I changed to morphine it doesn't seem to do the trick..this is long..but any answers would be very appriciated..Thanks.. ## Oxycodone is actually one and a half times stronger than Morphine. So, for instance if you were taking 20mgs of Oxycodone, at a time, to relieve your pain, then the equivalent d...

red round pill no markings scored
I received this pill from out of the country. Its a fairly big round red pill. Scored on 1 side with two lines. Its suppose to b Tramadol 200 mg ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? What country is it from? When it comes to foreign pills with no markings, it's likely going to be difficult to determine a positive ID. However, if you can post back with more details, such as what country it's from, I may be able to find something. Thanks! ## i have a red round large pill with 2 scores and no imprint it's supposed to be a oxycodone 30 & its From overseas. is that what it is? ## this is tramadol 225mg slow release. ive seen it as round red/dark pink with either a strawberry, capital R,or 225 marking and scored on the other side. even though its slow release, be very careful of such...

oxycodone 20 mg K57 vs NP14
I don't usually count the pills when I pick up my Rx. This time I did & felt a difference in the thickness. Some are marked NP on one side & K57 on one side & blank on the other. I'm assuming they're from different Mfg Co's but don't like to assume with my pain pills! Also, is it normal practice for Pharmacies to mix? ## I have a bad back and am wondering if being prescribed oxycodone would be the best course of action? ## Yes, these both contain 20mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation and mixing can be normal, if your pharmacy doesn't have enough of one to fill your prescription. There is nothing wrong with it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, ...

Some urgent advice - Lyrica / Lexapro
Hello Ive been on Lyrica apx 1.5 years with varied dose but most recently 750mg (375mg morning 375mg evening). My question also involces Lexapro 30mg AM. I take a myriad of other meds as well. Thursday 10th July I stopped taking my am dose of lyrica and my lexapro....there was a number of events that were taking place and I had forgotten a bunch of times and by that stage I was like bugger it I want off this crap I may as well stay off it now. The lexapro was going to be stopped cold turkey anyway next week. Regardless of reason or whether I was going to stop anyway the way I feel now is deathly. I am moody, snappy very out of turn for me. I am like a zombie except I can feel pain so so so much pain, my eyes blur. I have vertigo, nausea and so on... My GP is away till next week. What id...

40mg oxycontin er look a like pills
I need a 40 mg oxycontin Er pill look alike. They are a light orange almost kinda yellow pill. Any suggestions would be very helpful. I understand the markings will be different and that is fine as long as the color is pretty much dead on. ## I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this, but I don't know who you're trying to fool by doing that. Unless you know of a quality counterfeit, there's really no such thing as a true look alike. The imprint on the pill doesn't lie and would be easily identified by a medical professional or someone who takes these types of pills on a regular basis. Not only that, but you could possibly be endangering the patient who's prescribed these by mixing them with something that they are allergic to or that isn't necessarily t...

did they replace all the original oxycontin with this new crush resistance formula
I heard that all the pharmacy replaced all the original oxycontin (OC) with this new formula that prevents anyone from crushing it. The new pills says OP on the one side instead of it saying OC. And if you still can get the original oxycontin (OC) do you now need to request it from your doctor so he can write you a prescription for the original oxycontin (the pill that says OC on one side instead of it saying OP ## The original Oxycontin has been discontinued and will no longer be available. Once pharmacies are out of their current stock, there will not longer be a supply of it out there. The new Oxycontin OP has been specially designed to prevent abuse, by retaining its time released properties, even if crushed or chewed. Otherwise, for pain, it works the same and still has the same si...
