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. Analgesics include paracetamol (known in the US as acetaminophen or simply APAP), the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ...

Hydrocodone refill on 1st of month, can I refill on July 31st?
2 Replies RSS
My pain specialist prescribes Hydrocodone 7.5/325, 90 pills per month. He gives me scripts that are post dated, 3 months at a time. My refill date is the 1st of every month. My question is this... the script is a 30 day supply and since July has 31 days in it, can I get them refilled on July 31st instead of waiting until August 1st? Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help to my question.... ## Hello, Clatono! How are you? Yes, you should be able to get it filled on the 31st. Ultimately, it's up to your pharmacy, but there shouldn't be any problem. 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...

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...

Hi all. I have intractable pelvic RSD, peripheral neuropathy, lumbar facet spondylosis. I live in California and am about to have to change insurances at the end of this month. The new insurance has ridiculously high Rx prices. I go to a PM for all my pain meds, but my primary dr has in the past managed them for me. My question is if anyone knows if I get an Rx for the 60mg Oxycontin twice a day like usual from my PM and then my primary to write a script for 40mg 3 times a day and then I can go to 2 totally different pharmacies and fill one with my insurance and the other at another pharmacy and pay with cash, will that flag the DEA and cause my PM to get a notification of "Doctor shopping"? I am just trying to have enough meds to get me through an extra month until my husbands ...

Is expired acetaminophen toxic
1 Reply RSS
Can 8 year old acetaminophen chemically change into something harmful and toxic? Thanks, I can't buy any at the moment and this is all I have. I will be taking 1000mg. ## No, it does not become toxic after expiring. However, medications do lost effectiveness over time, so it will most likely be worthless to take and you should just dispose of it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Percocet Detox Day Five
1 Reply RSS
Day 6 of withdrawals from Percocet 30's... Was doing about 5 a day... Weined down to 2 per day... If I was to take 1/2 wld it reset everything I have been through already for 6 days... Slept only about 15 minutes in about a 9 hour period, restless legs and couldn't get comfy... I had diarrhea all night and have not eaten a good full meal in 6 days... Just don't want to damage any progress I have made... ## No, it won't be a complete reset, unless you'd start taking it regularly, again. It can often be a good way to mitigate the withdrawal symptoms, doctor's often have their patients skip days, while lowering their dose, to taper off of such medications. Thus, if your doctor approves, you can do that. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so ...

Any luck? ## @Sucky vacations, Wow, sorry to hear about what happened to your 10 yr old along with the meds being stolen. If I were you I'd look into filing a police report that you can present to a local doctor in the meantime to at least show them that you're telling the truth when you mention your story, upon asking for a new prescription. However, with the scarcity of pharmacies filling prescriptions for these types of medications in Florida, going to the emergency r...

Looking for a compassionate pain mangement doctor in or near Columbia SC Responsive and willing to write pain medications when needed
3 Replies RSS
I'm looking for someone near Columbia, SC. I have been seeing doctors for chronic back problems for years with MRI's etc. I experience routine moderate to severe pain and the only person I have right now to see me quickly and right me prescriptions is my primary care who prefers I go to the specialist and that is what I want. The specialist I have found have been amazingly uncaring and unsympathetic despite ackowledging there are multiple issues. I just saw a neurosurgeon who is referring me to a pain management clinic and I found out it takes 1-2 weeks to see if they will even take your case....absurd and uncompassionate from a pain management facility as far as I'm concerned. Imagine a major flair up......will I have to wait 1-2 weeks to get any relief??? It's ridiculo...
