kansas city mo pain medication prescribers
77 Replies RSS
I am uninsured and have a referral to a pain management clinic, but cannot afford the clinic. I would like to know of any cheap doctors who would prescribe the narcotic pain medication I need to be on in the Kansas City MO area. ## Hi, Kat! How are you? I'm sorry, but under the new regulations that were put in place this year, if you require narcotic pain medications on a long-term basis to treat chronic pain, you're going to have to see a pain management specialist. PCPs are no severely restricted in what they can prescribe, how long they can prescribe it and why they can prescribe it. Do you qualify for any type of assistance to help paying for the clinic? ## Hello Verwon, thank you for the reply. I am currently trying to get Medicaid but I know the clinics do not take Medicai...

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
680 Replies RSS
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

can percocet AND Flexeril be taken together
40 Replies RSS
I take Percocet and Flexeril and was told by the doctor to wait a couple of hours before I take one or the other. What are the possible side effects, positive and negative. ## More than likely he advise to space them apart because they can both cause central nervous system depression. This can cause your breathing to slow and be shallower, a slower heart rate and etc. Using them both together can also worsen some other side effects, that they both can cause, such as drowsiness, dizziness and nausea. He is probably trying to minimize this for you. If you use them as he instructed you to, you may be able to get better pain control. Many doctors prescribe a muscle relaxant, like Flexeril, along with other pain management medications. Reducing the tenseness in the muscles can help lessen th...

Fake 10/325 Endo Percocet (Banana)?
4 Replies RSS
I recently picked up some 10/325 Percocet and the imprint looks legit but the pills break apart extremely easy. They're either very old or fake. I notice that immediately around the edges looks really rough...almost like they went through the washer or something. Is there an easy way to tell the difference between old pills and fake pills? I can break them with my hand really easily but it seems like you'd be able to do this if they were put in water or something. ## If you got them from a pharmacy they are legimate. Sometimes the appearance and consistency of medications change with different manufacturers. ## Sounds like the ones that just about took my life. If they didn't come from a pharmacy then its definitely not worth the risk of your life! The edges have a bit of a ...

Percocet vs Tramacet
107 Replies RSS
Hi. I'd like information comparing Percocet(oxycodone/ acetaminophen) and Tramacet (tramadol hydrochloride/acetaminophen). Is Percocet a stronger, or more powerful pain killer than Tramacet, and if so, by how much? eg if you have been taking Percocet are you likely to get the same effect from Tramacet? Is there a chart somewhere that compares or ranks all pain killers comparatively? If so please tell me where. Thanks - good health to you all ## The Tramadol is not actually a narcotic, it is derived from an opiated, but it is not actually one, so it is therefore nowhere near as strong as the Percocet, which contains a strong narcotic Oxycodone. ## She asked about Tramacet not Tramadol. Tramacet is an opiate as is Percocet. As for the chart listing different opiates and their strength...

can i take a percocet 10mg after taking a little piece of su
1 Reply RSS
I took a lil piece is suboxen around 830 am and now my tooth hurting and i wanted to no if its ok to take a percocet. 10 mg now for my tooth remember i only took a lil corner of the suboxen ## The Suboxone usually blocks the effects of other opiates for approximately 3 days, after taking it. The FDA classifies these medications as narcotic analgesics, so they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Does it have less Tylenol than other brands and are they just as strong as other brands ## Hello, Chazzy! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Alvogen and they list it as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen/Tylenol and 5mgs of Oxycodone. 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. I still have several left from the time I had a kidney stone and they worked great for me. Is there anything else I can help with?

how to tell fake percocet a333's
36 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...

What Is Stronger/Longer lasting Than 10mg Percocet
22 Replies RSS
My primary dr has me on 10 mg percocet, 2 every 4 hrs for chronic/severe leg pain but it has lost it's effectiveness. I have appt w/pain mgt clinic on the 18th for the 1st time and am hoping they rx something stronger & definitely something that lasts longer. I haven't slept a full night in almost 2 years due to waking up in pain, taking meds, waiting for them to kick in and waiting to fall asleep again. Does anyone have an educated guess on what they may rx or what works well for this problem? Just curious and very excited at the prospect of having this pain under control. ## There are actually several time released medications that they may choose from. The most commonly used contains Oxycodone, it's called Oxycontin. There's also a time released Morphine available...
