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 reversibly 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 morphine and oxycodone. In choosing analge...

1 Reply RSS
in Canada what is small a small round white pill with APO on one side and H4 on the other side? ## Hello, Rob! How are you? Apotex Canada lists this as being a pale yellow tablet, which contains 4mgs of Hydromorphone. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 7.5 500 Or Oxycodone Acetaminophen 5-325
3 Replies RSS
which is stronger hydrocodone 7.5/500mg oxycodone-acetaminophen 5-325 ## About the same as oxycodone is about 1.5 times stronger than hydrocodone. ## Regarding the analgesic effect, using a dose conversion, they are actually equivalent. Thus, it would really be a matter of finding out which one is more effective for you, since not every medication works for everyone that tries it. Since these are both narcotics, there is a chance that they could be habit forming and you may experience side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Which has been recommended for you? You can learn more Lortab details here. You can learn more Percocet details here. ## I've been taking hydrocod for chronic pain after a botched surgery, I'm very concerned about my liver ....wh...

Fentanyl overdose

My son used fentanyl patches for pain relief should i be concerned if old patches were not taken off when new patches were put on it wasnt noticed for 12 hrs afterwards ## Hello, Luke! How is your son? Has he shown any signs of possible overdose, which the U.S. FDA lists as possibly including vomiting, severe dizziness, severe drowsiness, somnolence, lowered heart rate and shallow breathing? This is a very potent opiate, so there could still be a risk, even though the prior patch was mostly used up.

Rp white 30mg pill

Are the RP 30 mg instant release like the blue m stamp 30 mg are? I'm just curious cause they switched me to the RP 30 and I don't feel like they work as well as the blue m stamp 30s.. But my main question is are the RP 30mg instant release? ## Hello, Marissa89! How are you? Yes, they are regular release tablets, which should begin to work within 15 to 20 minutes of taking them, though many doctors call them instant, now, since they aren't delayed release. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. How long have you been taking these new ones? Sometimes there can be slight fluctuations from one generic to another and it c...

can I go cold turkey?

I have been on norco 10-325 for 5 years and take 2 to 5 per day. What would be a good schedule to us to taper off and quit using it. I have heard that cold turkey may not be the best way to do it. ## Hello, Steve! How are you? Cold turkey could result in your experiencing withdrawal symptoms, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, fever, chills, depression, anxiety and rebound pain, so yes, a slow taper is best. There's no specific taper schedule that always works for everyone, however, in most cases, the preferred method is to have someone starting spacing their doses farther apart, while gradually taking less and less, usually a change is made every week or two. Have you consulted your doctor? They should be able to help you set up an appropriate an...

White Watson 10mg 325 #853
322 Replies RSS
I just recieved a new prescription of norco 853 10/325. The last script was yellow and the new ones are white. The pharmacist said that Watson changed the color but the pill is the same, does anyone know if this is accurate ## Watson has change a few different medications and the colors are different. But the Norco you're referring to is the same medication that you were prescribed prior. It is just as effective as the script you had filled before this one and it's a good thing that you ask the pharmacist, the pharmacist is correct. ## LuLu is correct and so was your pharmacist. There have been several posts on here recently about various Watson tablets being white now. It seems that some people were sensitive or allergic to the dyes they were using, thus they decided to do away...

Please, has anyone else taken pregabalin and experienced lost of memory and words? I've been on it for 5 years and I'm really feeling messed up and can't remember what happened yesterday and stuff. ## Hello, Robbie! How are you? Yes, those are common side effects of this class of medications, as reported by the U.S. FDA. They tend to worsen the longer you're on them, too. Other typical side effects may include dizziness, headache and weight gain. Have you informed your physician? It may be time for you to try a different medication.

i need to find a doctor in fort worth texas that prescribes pain killers like hydrocodones
129 Replies RSS
Does anyone know a doctor that is good about prescribing pain killers like hydrocodens 10/325 in fort worth Texas? I am a diabetic type 1 that has a lot of pain and really in need of a good doctor that can help me out and not think i am faking pain. ## Due to the new laws that have recently been put in place, you will most likely be better off seeing a pain management specialist and there isn't a very good chance of getting this particular medication anymore. The FDA and DEA are cracking down and aren't letting general practitioners or surgeons treat chronic pain that requires long-term regular treatments. They will only be allowed to prescribe such medications for a short period of time, such as for a few weeks immediately after someone has had surgery or been injured. Learn mo...
