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 was told that these would help opoid withdrawals? i was prescribed percocet 10mg for the last 2 years and decided i wanted to quit taking them, ive seen prescription pain killers ruin alot of lives and i dont want something like that to happen to me. anyway i havent been feeling good since i quit taking the medicine and a friend gave me these and said they would help make me feel better, i just wanted to get other opinions before a took them. thanks ## These contain 300mgs of Gabapentin, which is an anticonvulsant that's also used to treat some mood disorders and certain types of nerve pain… and to have any affect, they need to be taken for 4 to 6 weeks, so they really aren't going to do anything to help with withdrawals. Have you consulted your doctor? It would most lik...

anywhere to get tramadol after august 18?
Ive been taking tramadol for aprox 8yrs nonstop other than a 7week break. Ive back problems and my knees are broken down do to years of rough wear and tear on top of many injuries. Ive no health insurance either. Truth b told,i cannot function very well at all without taking the tramadol. So i am checking to see of anyone has any insight or suggestions as to where i may b able to purchase tramadol after the 18th of august which is when tramadol becomes a controlled substance. Im aware that ordering overseas is risky but going without the meds is not an option. I am very worried about the change in classification. I never expected anything like this to happen, had i known and not been ignorant to the possibility of not being able to order tramadol online i would have done something diffe...

Regarding Lyrica, I was prescribed it for fibromyalgia in 2009, 50 mg. twice a day. I took it for three years. I stopped taking it a year & 1/2 ago
I was prescribed Lyrica for fibromyalgia in 2009, 50 mg. twice a day, I took it for three years. It has messed up my life also. Stuttering, lack of memory, my gums hurt for a year, now my front teeth are crooked, and I've been referred to an orthodontist for braces. Really? I'm 63 years old! I'm afraid I'll lose my teeth as some of you have. I STOPPED taking it a year and a half ago on my own. Since I've read all of your problems, now I know why, it's the Lyrica. I had depression, was on anti-depressants. It also caused me to have cateracts, and each eye hemorrhaged one month after the surgery of each eye. I've had blurry vision since, it moves around in my eye like a cloud! We need an attorney that will represent all of us NOW! I even called the FDA. No one ...

Here is no BS guide to Fentanyl withdrawals
My story is like most of yours-I was put on the patch, the dosage was increased, after five years I am in remission and wanted off. I titrated down to 13mcg and made the jump. I have been in some state of withdrawal from 50mcg to now, one month being patch free. My doctor said it could be months before it ends. This drug saved my life then took it way again but in a different context. I am going to cover withdrawals but in short doses. It should only be used for end stage. If for chronic, only for the least time possible I found this and wanted to share it. The worse of the withdrawals is the feeling you have to move, jerk, etc. There is a medical term for it, Read on. .Akathisia, or acathisia (from Greek καθζειν kathízein - "to sit", a- indi

generic 10mg oxycodone IR KVK brand. Any info about known quality of this med compared to other generics?
I have seen so many different opinions and information about companies offering generic oxycodone and the differences in strength, and quality over other generic brands. I have also heard that the FDA allows from 12% to 20% variances in the active ingredient (oxycodone) in their pills. Which if i am understanding this correctly, they can be + or - 12 to 20% of the actual amount of oxycodone per tablet? Can someone with the expertise or knowledge (like a pharmacist or a doctor) explain this to us who have heard this and don't understand? I personally suffer with chronic pain from a construction accident 20 yrs ago in which my back was broken in 7 places along with a lot of muscle and nerve damage which has left me on disability and in chronic pain after 4 surgeries and 7 levels of my...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...
