Pain Relief Overview

An analgesic or painkiller is any member of the group of drugs used to achieve analgesia, relief from pain. Analgesic drugs act in various ways on the peripheral and central nervous systems. They are distinct from anesthetics, which temporarily affect, and in some instances completely eliminate, sensation. Analgesics include paracetamol (known in North America as acetaminophen or simply APAP), the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as the salicylates, and opioid drugs such as...

convert hydrocodone into oxycontin
Post a Reply
I was taking 3 10 mg oxycontin a day along with 8 norcos 10/325. I have been given oxycontin 20 mg three times a day to replace the 10 mg oxy and the vicodins. Is this enough to assure no wd from going totally off the vicodin or do I need a higher dose of oxy to cover it. I am not sure of the conversion from the vicodin to the oxy. Remember I was originally on the 10 mg oxys three times a day along with the vic. Thanks.

hydrocodone pills m365
Post a Reply
My doctor writes my prescription for Hydrodcod/Acetam 5-325 and the maker is Watson. When the drug store filled it last week it has M365 on the pill. I have taken three on three different days and noticed there was no relief. I took one pill 3 hrs ago and there has been no relief. That is the reason I took a pill out of the bottle and found the M365 stamped on the pill. If they are suppose to be the same - why is the pain still there?

Which Is Stronger 30 Mg Of Morphine Sulphate Er Or 10 Methadone
87 Replies RSS
I am in a confusing debate with ex husband which is stronger 30 mg of morphine sulfate E.R or 10 mg of methadone? ## Methadone is stronger than Morphine, just as an example, if you were taking the 30mgs of Morphine, the equivalent dosage of Methadone would only be 3mgs, so it's a roughly 1mg to 10mg ratio. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was on Methadone tablets for 13 years with a NY pain mgmt doctor who worked alongside an Orthopedic surgeon who originally diagnosed my lumbar-sacral pain from DDD (L5/S1) and nerve damage in my legs, plus osteoarthritis in hips and spine. My Methadone dose began at 30mg/day, and at it's highest 10 yrs later, was on 150mg/day. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2009, and lost 130 lbs by 2010. My Methadone dosage was able to be brought ...

oxycontin 10mg 2x a day vs. hydrocodone 5/325 every 6 hours
3 Replies RSS
I suffer from cervical stenosis and severe back pain that may require surgery. I am also suffering from a mental illness/deep depression/anxiety. I take several meds for the latter. I had been prescribed hydrocodone 5/325 every six hours, and that worked great for my pain, and I didn't sleepy. Now since changing Pain Mgmt Specialist, he prescribes OxyContin 10mg 2x a day, and this makes me so sleepy, especially with all of my other medications. This new doctor said hydrocodone was not good to take with my mental illness, but he gives me OxyContin? I don't get it, clearly the OxyContin is worse for me if I'm sleepy all the time, at least I could function and stay awake on hydrocodone. I don't know what to do, my physiatrist has even written a letter stating the hydrocodon...

what is this p500 pill
4 Replies RSS
It's a white oval pill with P500 on one side and blank on the other. Sites are showing me pink oval pills like that that are acetaminophen/propoxyphene but none white, and other sites are coming up with a white oval pill with P on one side and 500 on the other as an antibiotic. ## Just out of curiosity Tai, whereabouts did you get it from? My research also yields the same two examples you already mentioned. It seems strange that something with what appears to be a common imprint can't be easily identified when others of similar description can. Pliva Inc. is the manufacturer of the Acetaminophen/propoxyphene napsylate (pink version). And part of me wonders if their tablet used to be white at one point or another, as I understand manufacturers may alter shapes and colors without ...

Generic Oxymorphone

Had my Dr change my ER med to Oxymorphone. Went to Walgreens and they told me NO generic. Talked to the other Pharmacist, he looked it up and BAM, they had them from actavis!! Saved me 80.00!!!! So, the Pharmacist dont even know they have them ## I'm glad you were able to find it and save so much money! But you do have to go a little easy on the pharmacist that wasn't aware, especially at a large store like Walgreens. He has a lot of duties and may not always be able to keep up with all the new drug release information. There are more important things he has to give priority to, such as keeping up on new drug side effects, interactions and warnings. Ordering the stock and etc. It can be a pretty hectic job.
