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.

Which is stronger: Watson or Sun Pharma 10/325 norco
1 Reply RSS
Is the norco 10/325 176 made by Sun Pharmaceuticals stronger than the norco 10/325 Watson brand? I was taking Watson and they gave me 176. ## Hello, Debbie! How are you? While there can be differences between generic medications, as permitted by the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, what it really comes down to is what works for you. Have you tried taking this one, yet? If so, has it been helping you? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

I took hydrocodone about 4 hours ago and I have some old tramadol. I have such a bad headache. Will it be OK to take this tramadol? ## You can do so, as long as your doctor approves, but you should be aware that these opioids can cause headaches as a side effect, according to the FDA and the NIH. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

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.

The will only help with issues that have been caused by excess acid, such as gastritis, GERD, pain from ulcers, and heartburn, as detailed by the NIH. What has caused the stomach ache? Has there been any change? Are you on any medications? An I am not aware of any that contain Aspirin. Since it is actually very harsh on the stomach, according to the FDA.

I have pain shooting from my left lower back. It runs down the left side to the foot. Also tingling. I am on 10mg oxycodone + 325mg acetaminophen. I've been on them for I think 3 yrs. So they are not working. My question is how do I go about telling my doctor that I need something stronger without sounding like an addict? Thanks for all answers.
