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...

No One Will Tell Me If The Doctor Has Ordered To Take Much Pain Meds 2 Tabs Morphine 15mg And 5 Hydrocodone 10 325mg Aday Gabapentin 800mg 3 Times Car
will someone anwer this question for me doctor will not lower meds and i am not awake enought to take them as ordered. doctor will drop me if is order our not followed ## If you are sleeping that much, then yes, there is a possibility that you are taking too many medications, but only you can really decide that. What type of doctor are you seeing? It really makes no sense for him to refuse to lower medications, if necessary. What is his reasoning for it? Most doctors are far too conservative the other way and are afraid of prescribing too much. ## For anyone else in this boat, the doctor is referring to the fact that when he gives you a u.a., you had better have the opiates he prescribed in your system or else he will think you are diverting your medications. Also this post sounded trol...

doctors who prescribe oxycodone in seattle washington
Severe Back pain - ptsd - severe head aches. looking for doctor maybe VA will VA perscribe.. also they lost my medical records ## Hello, Brandon! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain, no one should have to suffer. However, there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. I know most VA hospitals have pain management programs, so you could try contacting them. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## VA will not prescribe opiates. My Dad suffers as well and they just overload him with NSAIDS and recommend neck surgery. We are not sure that would be a great idea for someone 70+ with PTSD and no discs between C5, C6 and C7 ## I can relate, also have ptsd and back problems, all i can say is this: getting on the opiate tra...

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

What Does A Generic 10mg Percocet Look Like
i know what the yellow ones look like but do they have some that are round with no markings on either side and are white,is this a percocet? ## If there are no markings, then it is not a legal U.S. prescription tablet, of any type. Under federal law, they are all required to have markings to enable their identification, in case of emergency. If this one has no markings, there are 2 possible options of what it could be. The first and most likely is that it is some type of over the counter product, because they are not required to have imprints and there are many that meet this description. The second is that it could be a foreign medication, since they are not regulated as strictly as those approved in the U.S. and Canada. Where was it found/obtained? ## Is there any that's small yel...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds.

Enantyum and pregnancy.
can enantyum be used in a pregnant woman in her 8 week of gestation who has alot of headache, backache and lower waist pain?. ## Hello, Anne! How are you? No, this is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and they usually are contraindicated during pregnancy. It would be best to consult your doctor to see what is safe for you to take. Usually, Paracetamol is safe for most women. Though it may cause some nausea and dizziness. Is there anything else I can help with?

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
i have post sirgical lower back pain. was in 50 mcg pat. ch and had side effects ans so decided to wean off. i finished with the 12 mcg patch a week ago and am still suffering from peroidic nausea, irritability, daily joint and muscle pain, but the worst is the consistant restless leggs. it is driving me crazy. my doctor says that is not withdrawal. is he right? i don't think so. if it is withdrawal, what can i do about it and how long will it last? i am going crazy. ## Of course it can be from the withdrawal, your doctor might be surprised if he talked to some former addicts and learned the various things they suffered, when withdrawing from their drug of choice and you don't have to be abusing a medication for such things to happen.
