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...

percocet vs norco
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ...

Generic Percocet. It is a round white pill. Scored on one side and on same side has what looks like a V and on the other scored side the numbers 483
I have a prescription for Percocet/5-325mg tab EN....I got a generic from the pharmacy that reads oxycodone/apap 5-325 M Tab. Is there any difference in these ??? Are they the same compound ( identical )? ## Did you mean a pill with the marking V 4839? If so, then yes, it contains the same ingredients and dosage as the Percocet that you were prescribed, 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Learn more: Are there any other questions or comments? ## Does the ROUND WHITE TABLETS side 1 WATSON 932 have the same ingredients as STANDARD WHIT/YELLOW CAPSULE side 1 : LV 901 ? Thanks ! ## Shirley, no, they are not exactly the same. The one with the marking WATSON 932 contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of A...

antidepressant closest to Tramadol in the brain.
I am a recovering Tramadol addict of 8 yrs. Last 3 I was taking 20-25 a day. Off internet or by phone. Had a source prob in India. Would use pre-loadable credit card called PayPower. Mailed in 2-3 days via USPS. Well in May 2014 I got sick with Adnovirus fr son an somehow that messed with Tramadol. Started having palpitations an skipped heart beat. Very scary. Went to ER. Very humiliating to say you are an addict but my own fault. See Tramadol is VERY addictive. For SOME!! It has antidepressant/anti-anxiety properties in it also. Thats why I liked it so. I was first prescribed it by orthopedic dr for tibial stress fracture. Also fibromyalgia an herniated disc in lumbar. Also had lost a child an it seemed to make me happier. Going back to ER. Dr did tons of bloodwork even on heart. Could...

Ive had weird symptoms such as watery mouth, chapped lips, burning feeling in stomach, nausea, more hungrier than usual, anxiety, crying, leg pain, decrease in sleeping. I will fall asleep and wake up and stay up after a couple hours. Has anyone had similiar symptoms? ## I forgot to add that im having these electric shock sensations thats worse when walking. They are like zaps. ## Hello, Trish! How are you? First of all, what were you taking? Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, it is only available in a maximum dosage of 10mgs of the Oxycodone and 325mgs of the Acetaminophen. There is no 20 or 40mg dosage...

Norco Shortage in Michigan
Is anyone else having problems finding a pharmacy to fill their scripts of Norco? I have been taking them for a few years now for my chronic pain. I always go to the same pharmacy chain, and its always the same doctor who writes my scripts, but since the new law change no one seems to have them in stock. Some pharmacists told me it was a manufacturer back order. We are told not to go without our meds, but yet how is that possible if we can't get them? Anyone knows of a pharmacy that has Norco 10/325 in the metro Detroit area? ## Dear Painfully Annoyed, Yes, this appears to be a huge problem at the moment. I have called every pharmacy in my insurance plan and everyone says the same thing. Your not alone, I was told it is a repackaging issue with the manufacturers due to the new laws....

Doctors Who Prescribe Oxycontin In Oklahoma
I have been in Pain management since 2004 in California and just Moved out there to muskogee Oklahoma... unfortunately there are NO doctors here willing to treat my pain i was on a regiment of 80mg Oxycontin 2X daily 10/325mg Norcos every 4 hours and 4mg IV dilaudid as needed for breakthrough pain... i am in search of a doctor out this way who is actualluy willing to perscribe these meds... thanks ## Well, the first question I have is, how are you checking with the doctors about getting help? The reason I am asking is because if you're calling various doctor's offices and asking if they'll treat you and prescribe specific medications, then you will pretty much always get told no. When someone does that, doctor's and their staff are taught to see it as drug seeking behavi...

I have caught cvs and other pharmacies lying about not having oxycodone is stock, shortage 2012
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...

morphine sulfate er help
Need dr in pittsburgh pa.. been taking ms for awhile want to stay on ## You're not looking for a doctor; you're searching for a drug dealer. I will skip the lecture about the fact that addicts like you make it more difficult in general for people with legitimate chronic pain get the proper medications. Instead of looking in the "Physician" section of the Yellow Pages, try flipping through the "Drug Addiction Treatment" section. You need help,not more drugs. ## Hello, Criss! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. General practice doctors will not be able to prescribe it for you. And if you go in asking for a specific medication, th...

How are you? No, Fentanyl is the strongest narcotic available, it is even stronger than Oxycodone. 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. However, you may need a medication for breakthrough pain, in addition to the patches. Most doctors will prescribe a low dose Oxycodone or something similar. Have you let your doctor know that your current regimen isn't hand...
