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 ...

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
150 Replies RSS
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.

Unable to fill Dilaudid perscription!
1 Reply RSS
i am currently unable to fill my Dilaudid 2mg due to no pharmacies carrying it. My dr has tried everything and feels that Dilaudid would be my best bet for pain control. I have a mass in my stomach and in severe pain. Due to not being able to find the Dilaudid I have to go to the ER every other day for pain injections and hydration. Any advice? ## Beck have you tried a compounding pharmacy? You may also try to get the social worker at the hospital to help you with resources. Can you fill your rx at the hospital where you are being treated?

How Much Is Too much Oxycodone For A Male At Weight Of 225 Lbs
34 Replies RSS
I would like to know what would cause an overdose in a male who is 225 lbs. in weight using oxycodone. I have over 220 5 mg. tabs. ## Please correct me if I am wrong, but to my knowledge, Oxycodone doses aren't usually based on weight, but rather the severity of the pain you're dealing with. I went ahead and posted the adult dosing guidelines below...As far as ODing on oxycodone, I would guess anything over a 100mg, since you can get them in doses of as high as 80mg and oxycontin at even higher doses. For initial treatment the following dosing schedule is recommended: Immediate Release (IR): 5 mg to 15 mg orally every 4 to 6 hours Controlled Release (CR): 10 mg orally every 12 hours. For maintenance treatment: Immediate Release: 10 mg to 30 mg orally every 4 hours. Doses greater...

Risk of cortal aspirin during pregnancy
24 Replies RSS
What can be the effect of cortal aspirin during my 2nd or 3rd week of pregnancy? I am 3 months pregnant now. I am so nervous of what the cortal will cause to my baby? please help me. ## If you are having a normal, healthy pregnancy, then there should really be no effect on you or the baby. The rumors that Aspirin will cause an abortion or miscarriage are false. The reason there is concern about a woman using Aspirin while she is pregnant is due to its blood thinning properties. If she is using close to the time she goes into labor, it could cause excessive bleeding or hemorrhage, which can endanger both her and the baby. Thus, it is very important that you do not use past your third month of pregnancy. Are there any other comments or questions? ## IS ASPIRIN STILL CAN CAUSE MISSCARRGE I...

WHITE ROUND PILL WITH CEMOL WRITTEN IN CURSIVE ON ONE SIDE AND LOOKS LIKE CPL ON THE OTHER, BUT THE P AND L RUN TOGETHER. THIS PILL IS FROM THAILAND ## As far as I know, its basically a Thai Tylenol. It contains Acetaminophen which is found in Tylenol. I got a bag of them when I went to a dentist in Hat-Yai. ## That is correct, Cemol is available in several foreign countries and contains Acetaminophen, though I am not sure what dosage you have. As Cooter said, it is most commonly sold under the brand name Tylenol, it is a pain reliever and fever reducer. You can read more here: Did you have any other questions? ## Got some sort of an antibiotic in Thailand that is white has AMMI on one side, and a design on the other.

## I find that taking a 50mg Tab with 1, 500 mg Tylenol on an empty stomach works best. Drink lots of water! Eat about two hours after. Works well with a 4mg Tizanidine (muscle relaxer too). Sometimes I split the tab to 25mg w/2 Tylenol as a trade off. I have 3 level ACDF Surgery coming up so not taking NSAIDS. Holistic treatments: Epson Salt Baths and products by Dr. Teal Epson Salt Brand. Low cost at WalMart. Heat wrap for neck. Soft cervical collar you pump with air to lift discs up. Lidoderm Patches for nerve pain on arms/neck. Temperpedic foam horseshoe shape neck pillow. Can't lay down without it.
