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...

difference between 30mg oxycodone and oxycontin
I keep searching and STILL don¨t have a straight answer. I am currently on 30mg, 3 times a day of OXYCODONE (legally prescribed) for horrific back pain..... ¿WHAT is the difference between the 2, if any, besides the NAME? oxycodone AND oxycontin........ PLEASE help me out! thanks! thanks!! ## Its the same drug - Oxycodone. One is time released (Oxycontin) and one is immediate release (oxycodone). If they changed your meds from Oxycodone 30mg 3xper day (total of 90mg a day) to Ocycontin it would be probably be 40mg 2x a day with breakthrough meds. ## Pita's comment is basically true. Though OxyContin is technically oxycodone hydrochloride - a slightly different formula, but yes -- essentially the same drug. The major difference is the time-released delivery of OxyContin as ...

I have a very bad neck injury and I'm taking 4 x 10mg oxycodone a day for pain. I've moved to Springfield recently and all of the doctors offices tell me "Oh, our policy is never to prescribe narcotics."

I need help anyone know a good doctor with in 200 miles of Springfield Mo. who will prescribe oxycodone? ## I can provide you with links that may help you in your search for pain management doctors that specialize in prescribing narcotics; however, there really is no way anyone can know ahead of time what these doctors are or are not willing to prescribe, as that is based on the doctor's...

I have been taking endocet 10/325 for yrs . Several my pharmacy has been out and given me oxycodone 10/325. I find I have to take 2 oxycodone a to 1 endocet . Why is that ? They say its the same I don't agree ## Hello, Molly! How are you? So you were taking the name brand for years? If so, then it does make sense that the generic may not work as well for you. There can be slight differences in the amount of the active ingredients, between the name brand and generics, so if you're used to the name brand and then receive a generic that might be slightly lower, it would only be normal to have such a problem. For most people the differences are negligible and have no real effect, but this happens to people that take something for a very long time or for those who are sensitive to me...

endocet vs oxycodone
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS AND MY DRUG STORE RAN OUT AND GAVE ME ENDOCET ?SAID IT WAS THE SAME THING BUT MY BODY TELLS ME THAT IT'S NOT THE SAME.HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS CHANGE? ## in reply to jim, i have to agree, i have been taking oxycodone for a while now, and got a new script for endocet, and it does not do anywhere near as much as the last prescription did... ## Well, I am not sure what you were on previously, since you just say Oxycodone, but Endocet is a combination drug containing both Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. The reason you may be having a problem, however, is due to the fact that generic meds ARE allowed, by law, to differ from name brands by as much as PLUS OR MINUS 20%. They also DO NOT HAVE TO BE EXACTLY IDENTICAL. I know the doctor...

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...

jacksonville pharmacies that will fill oxycodone
looking for a pharmacies that will fill a prescription for oxycodone in jacksonville flordia ## Good luck with that. I went to 63 pharmacies in Jax trying to fill a legitimate rx (MS / 22 yrs) with cash in hand, before giving up. I normally fill it through my insurance company's mail order pharmacy, which has never been a problem (because it's not based in Florida)... But this new wonderful healthcare system of ours has resulted in me getting dropped from my plan -- and now I'm one of the 28,000+ people who don't have insurance yet because of that website snafu in early March when I enrolled/paid. I've never been a government naysayer, but this is beyond unacceptable. Out of meds and getting sicker, but totally helpless.
