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...

round dark blue pill m box 30 from Canada
49 Replies RSS
So I bought a couple pills that were supposed to be on oxyCodone 30 milligram but I'm not sure what they are. The pills are round and very dark blue, instead of the usual a 215 pills which are lighter blue or the M box 30 milligrams which are very light blue. ## I would love it if somebody could please tell me what they are. The pill again is dark blue, round, with a boxed m on one side and a 30 on the other ## It is oxycodone 30 mg. Its made outside of of country. Thats why it looks a little different from the a 215 or lighter m 30. Hope this helps ## Actually, these have been asked about on here before and from chemistry evaluations I've found, they have come up as fakes with an unidentifiable ingredient, thus taking them could be very dangerous. It doesn't seem that they ...

oxycodone 10mg IR vs hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5-325
4 Replies RSS
I ran 1 1/2 day short on my oxy IR and have left over hydro from dental surgery. Is how much hydro can i take until its time for my refill ## I alternate oxycodone and loracet to manage my pain and it seems to keep my tolerance down for each drug. And as far as the dose of loracet take as prescribed because to much Tylenol is very bad on your liver. I would look at it like this use your loracet as a get me by until u can fill ur oxycodone. No more 4000mgs of Tylenol in 24 hrs. ## @Dalejrfan, Although only a doctor can legally advise you on what/how much of something you should take, the general adult dosing guidelines for Norco usually recommend 1 tablet every 4-6 hours as needed for pain. I would just encourage you to contact your local pharmacist to verify dosing instructions first. I...

Fentanyl Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting
130 Replies RSS
My doctor has had me on the 100 fentanyl patch for 1 year now. He is going to take me off it. Can you just stop taking it with out side effects or withdrawls. Please tell me the proper way to get off this patch. Please help me, I have the doctor appointment tomorrow and want to know what to say. So far it sounds like his plan is just to take me off cold turkey. I am scared of withdrawls I am a mom of 5 kids and need to be ok. Please help. ## No, it is not safe to go cold turkey. I have had a doctor tell me that no one has ever died from withdrawal. Fentanyl withdrawal can slow or even stop your breathing. I have been on a 350 mcg dose of fentanyl patcheds every 48 hours for 10+ years. I was in a serious car accident w/ligament & tendon injury, then they thought chronic pain/arthriti...

how to tell fake percocet a333's
57 Replies RSS
how can you tell bad percocet 10mg/325 pill? any way to test to make sure they are good? ## Hey Bob; thats a real good question. and the sad part is they come in all shapes and sizes based on the manufacturer and brand...overall the will be a long a oblong shape pill with the numbers clearly written on it. except in the case of watson where it says watson right on it... another way to determine a real one from the fake one is by the price. if you see a ridiculous price like $2 ($60 for 30) a pill chances are you getting a placebo...the average cost of 30 pills is anywhere from $500 to $700. anywhere in that price range you know that you are good. ## 500 to 700 bucks for 10/325 percocet? ## People are making fake a333 and others... watch out ## Yep, I know for a fact because my pupils do...

how does dilaudid compare with oxycodone?
16 Replies RSS
I am searching for information on how dilaudid compares with oxycodone ## myrin p ## white pill m on front,no.5771 ## For the first poster, Oxycodone is the strongest narcotic pain killer on the market that you can get in pill form. While Dilaudid is really a stronger medication, it is considered so dangerous that it is only available by prescription in a max of 10mgs, so for those who suffer chronic pain, the only option available in pill form to provide sufficient pain relief is Oxycodone. ## Zohaib, Myrin P is a new antimycobacterial treatment for Tuberculosis. ## Gary, M 5771 is Methadone 10mgs, generic for Dolophine. The side effects for this are similar to those of other narcotics. ## Diladuid is not that strong once you get used to it. Whoever told you you can only get a script f...

pink oxycodone 10mg
14 Replies RSS
I have a friend that takes 24 pink percocets a day 720 pills a month an her doctor prescribed them to be taken like that can that harm her. ## If this is what her doctor recommended for her, then I'd imagine she must be in some serious debilitating pain without it. However, what really concerns me about this doctor's approach is that each percocet tablet contains a minimum 325mgs of Acetaminophen. At the dosage she's taking in, that's an alarming 7,800mgs of Acetaminophen within 24hrs. Enough to cause some serious liver damage. Her doctor may have ignored the warning label, but it's been clearly stated by the FDA as well as drug manufacturers NOT to exceed 4,000mgs of Acetaminophen within a 24hr period and NOT to exceed 1000mgs in a single dose. These numbers a far b...

Fentanyl 50 Mcg H And Morphine Sulfate Cr 30 Mg Tab Togather Together
18 Replies RSS
Can fentanyl 50 mcg/h and morphine sulfate cr 30 mg tab , be taken togather at the same time ? ## Have you consulted a doctor? Where they prescribed to be used together? Since these are both controlled release medications, they are rarely used together, in this manner, due to the risks it can cause, since they both cause depression of the central nervous system. This is usually only done in cases of very severe, chronic pain, where the person has already built up a tolerance to the narcotics and is no longer getting effective relief from them. Normally, if someone is using the Fentanyl patch and requires a medication for breakthrough pain, they are given a regular release or instant release medication. ## Did a doctor prescribe these? If so, did one doctor prescribe the morphine and one...

Generic Opana ER
78 Replies RSS
Wanted to share with everyone how happy I am to have finally received the new generic Opana ER 20mg tablets from my pharmacy. I had found Opana to be very effective for my chronic pain and was very sad when they switched it over to the new formula as it wasn't nearly effective as the original octagon shaped tablets and caused stomach aches. These new generic ones seem to me to be as effective as the original formula had been. The tablets I received show to be made by Global Pharmaceuticals and are a small, round, green tablet with G73 imprinted on them. I'm happy to report that these are just like the original formula. Now I no longer have stomach aches from taking those plastic pills that Endo is selling. I sure do hope that these remain as they are, but I have read a couple ar...

advil for headache with xarelto
Post a Reply
I've had a migraine for almost 2 days. Past issues with these headaches are typically only resolved by taking ibuprofen. Problem is I am taking xarelto and I was told to only take Tylenol if I need pain relief. I have been taking Tylenol and it is not helping one bit. I thought my doctor said "occasionally" no more than 600mg of Advil would be okay, but I can't seem to reach anyone on the weekend. Please help!
