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...

I have caught cvs and other pharmacies lying about not having oxycodone is stock, shortage 2012
292 Replies RSS
Well today I officially caught a cvs here in Ga lie to me. A friend of mine filled his Meds yesterday. I go in, having a history with cvs, a recent one, and am immediately lied to. The pharmacist comes over and tells me they haven't had them in stock for months, without looking at his book or computer. At this point I stated an employee I know the name of told me shipment came in Thursday. He lied again. I then told him friend had filled yesterday morning. He said it was impossible. I then said I saw the bottle with my own eyes, it had their address on it, and even told him what brand they had since my friend just filled his there. Pharmacist lied to me yet again. I then asked him why he wad lying to me and that I am tired of being treated like a criminal because I am 30 with a hand...

Are they just like norco's ## Hi, Mustie! How are you? Yes, these tablets contain 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Norco. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Learn more Norco details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## my advice to anyone taking hydrocodone is to also ask your doctor for a script of ultram. I have taken these two for over a year. Although I have only found one generic that is as effective(white watsons). Even with them the ultram makes the pain relief last longer. I get the 10's and I split them in half and take a whole 10 ultram. I get 100 hydrocodone and 90 ultram. I have a herniated disc ...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
339 Replies RSS
I have been on Dilaudid for over 2 years now and I can't seem to get off of it. I'm under a doctor's care, but anyone who is on it knows it's very addicting! I think like everybody else, it's no good if you take it orally. It's only effective other ways. I always run out of Dilaudid before my prescription is ready to refill and recently I bought some oxycontin 40 mg. to see if they could replace my 4 mg. Dilaudid. However, I did 1/2 of a 40 mg. and I felt nothing. An hour later I did my 4 mg. Dilaudid and really felt it. But they are very short lived, that's why for cronic pain they like to give these stupid time release pain pills. How many mg.'s does equal the same amount of dilaudid? I also would like to know if anyone has ever tapered off of Dilaudid?...

i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

Suddenly Unable To Find Pharmacy Fill Morphine Mscontin
8 Replies RSS
I live n north Atlanta, ga. And suddenly no pharmacy (been to 6 so far) will fill my scripts. And each has a different reason than the next, yet none accusing me of any wrong doing. Been on severe pain control since .2005. No new meds at all... Why? ## What reasons have you been given? There have been a lot of problems on the east coast recently. A lot of issues are due to the fact that the limits on how much of these medications any pharmacy can order in each month are now being strictly enforced. This is causing many pharmacies to run out and they can't order in a new supply until the following month. ## I have had the exact same problem and I don't know what to do. I am almost out and still trying to find. I live in Loganville. Have you had any luck finding? ## Suddenly stopp...

need a pain dr. in south georgia asap. I say a pill mill jusdt because they prescribe good amounts usually but I am a completely on the up and up and have alot of back problems compounded by fibromyalgia and so on. ## It looks like law enforcement has been cracking down on the pill mills over there, so they may not be as generous as they might have been in the past: n regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results: {link removed because site no longer exists} You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another:

Need Help Finding Doctor To Prescribe Either Oxycodone Vicodin Or Methadone10mg For My Chronic Pain
99 Replies RSS
I have been suffering from chronic pain for 7 years and have always been on and off pain meds from tylenol 3 to 90mg methadone at the worst of any ever taken. I decided to dose down & get off of methadone as I did not care for the "clinic" enviroment per say as I was using more for pain then for addicition. I found a dr that prescribed me the pain meds for breakthrough pain and the pill form of methadone 10mg was what I chose but now he is gone as he lost his license which sucks for me because NO ONE will give me anything, not even the methadone unless I go back to the stupid clinc and I so don't want that... DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A DR. that would prescribe anything or just something to get me through life with less pain? I am in the twin cities of Minnesota and I will dri...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
401 Replies RSS
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...
