is Soma considered an opioid? ## No. It isn't related in any way to opioids. It is related to an ancient tranquilliser called meprobamate which was widely used in the 1950s but hardly at all since benzodiazepines hit the market. Another name for carisoprodol is ISOMEPROBAMATE. An amount of your Soma/Carisoma is metabolised by the liver into meprobamate so as well as being a superb muscle relaxant it does have a slight tranquillising effect. Barely noticeable though it does tend to potentiate the triazolo-benzos like alprazolam. I wonder where the notion that it was an opioid came from? That's one I never heard before! ## soma is not a opiate, IN FACT IN THE USA IT IS NOT EVEN A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE!. i never understood what all the hype was about, they only putt me to sleep. BUT... ...

 Dirame Propiram
Propiram (Algeril, Dirame, Bay 4503) is a partial mu opioid receptor agonist and weak mu antagonist analgesic from the ampromide family of drugs. It was invented in 1963 in the United Kingdom by Bayer[1] but was not widely marketed, although it saw some limited clinical use, especially in dentistry.

 Targiniq Er Oxycodone Hydrochloride + Naloxone Hydrochloride
The combination oxycodone is an opioid analgesic available as managed-release tablets under the trade names Targin (produced by Mundipharma), Targiniq and Targinact.

Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution

Morphine sulfate oral solution..... 100mg per 5ml How much shoud be taken to ease chronic back pain. ## From what I could gather, patients who have not been receiving opioid analgesics should be started on morphine sulfate in the following dosing range: Â Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution: 10 to 20 mg every 4 hours as needed for pain. "The dose should be titrated based upon the individual patient's response to their initial dose of morphine sulfate. This dose can then be adjusted to an acceptable level of analgesia taking into account the improvement in pain intensity and the tolerability of the morphine by the patient." I know it's not a direct answer but everyone responds to these drugs differently, so it's probably wise to just give it a trial run at a specific ... ...

I found a pill and need to know what it is. Does a opioid 30 mg have 324 on it? ## Hi Chicky, After doing a lot of digging on the internet, I couldn't locate an exact match to your pill. Pretty much all of the closely related descriptions and images I saw were of oblong or capsule shaped pills. The lack of available information leads me to believe that your pill falls into either one of the following categories: discontinued, Illicit, over-the-counter, or of foreign origin. Is it something that could've been brought back from overseas? ...

my pill is white with M357 on one side. This pill is suppose to be a muscle relaxer, I have lower back pain - didn't help at all. Any response? ## Your pill is vicodan, or, rather, a generic made by Mallinkro chemical company also known as hydrocodone, which is a narcotic, Schedule III controlled substance, and is also an opioid (synthetic formula of opium-based morphine). The M357 refers to the strength, which is 5 mg of hydrocodone, and 500 mg APAP, which is acetamenaphen--it reads, as hydrocodone/APAP 5/500 mg. It is used for mild to moderate types of pain, and the acet. portion is for inflammation. I have not heard of its use as a muscle relaxant, per se. Flexeril, Skelaxin, or Soma would be much better for a muscle relaxant in your case, it seems. All three are non-narcotic, th... ...

What Is Oxycodone Hcl
1 Reply RSS
What is the difference between tramadol hcl 50 mg and oxycodone 30 mg tablets ## Tramadol is a centrally acting analgesic of the opioid class, but it is not classified as a narcotic. It really doesn't work as well as the actual narcotics do, for some people. Oxycodone is an actual narcotic and is much stronger and more effective for a lot of people. Since they do share similar characteristics, the side effects that they both can cause are very similar and can include: nausea, dizziness, constipation and drowsiness. Are there any other questions? ...

Oxycodone addiction and abuse relief on the way
2 Replies RSS
Searching the internet, a biotech company in Australia has developed an oxycodone patch that delivers oxycodone via a patch. Controlled release so minimal euphoria and near impossible to extract. Much smaller amounts of opioid needed to achieve the same therapeutic results as well. Proof of concept trials on racehorses showed 100% success rate. For details: phosphagenics.com/documents/PhosphagenicsTopicalOxycodonePatchAlleviatesPaininRacehorses.pdf or slideshare.net/IAH100/iah-global-oxycodone-press-release-22-may-2014 Very promising stuff ## Hello, Irma! How are you? Thank you for your very informative post. This could be a fantastic breakthrough that may help many!
