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... ...

Mpathia in RI: I have read so many things and there is definitely something going on behind the scenes.

In RI, "pain Management is considered as Cortisone shots & maybe Lidocaine, etc. These meds become ineffective over time & can cause irepairable damage. What is the alternative? According to the guidelines all people on pain killers are addicts. I am not going to dispute that, however, there is no other options you can take. Tylenol is about all you will get.

DEA Cutting Opioid Supply in 2017
2 Replies RSS
My PM Dr is telling all patients he can no longer write Oxycodone beginning Jan 2017 because the DEA is controlling the supply and it will be virtually impossible to find. Does anyone know more about what is going on? I'm in Atlanta GA and I have had chronic pain since 2009 and have no idea what I will do. ## This is correct, the DEA is reducing the amount of almost all schedule 2 pain medications manufactured and available in the U.S. by 25% or more starting in 2017, this information was published in the Federal Register and a press release from the DEA itself. That doesn't mean it's going to be impossible to find, but it may become much more difficult, since that will also further limit the supply that any pharmacy will be able to have in stock each month. Sadly, I can onl... ...

Gabapentin for opioid withdrawal
2 Replies RSS
I am an opioid patient and when I can't get relief a friend told me that taking 400mgs of gabapentin helps the sickness. Is this true? ## Yes it does help, 600 pregab 2 times a day helped me a great deal. I have tried many times to come off opiates over 20 years in fact, never much success. But was able to come off completely with pregab just be warned, if taken for to long they are also addictive. ## Pregabapentin are stronger than gabapentin, and i meant 600mgs pregab, you can also use gabapentin it just depends how much opoid you are on, mine was a bad addiction. ...

Contrave and use of opioids for pain
1 Reply RSS
How long do I need to be off Contrave prior to having a significant orthopedic procedure which I know I will need opioid pain meds for after? ## Hi Cherlyn, The half life of Contrave's active ingredient 'Naltrexone' and its metabolite (naltrexol) are reported to be about 4 hours and 13 min. However for the simplicity of keeping track of time, I'd probably just average it at 4 hours. And you'd probably want to double check with your doctor/surgeon on this - but I've heard from some medical professionals that it can take up to 3-5 half lives for a medication to leave your system. IF this really is the case (and I know everyone is different), 5 half-lives for Naltrexone would add up to 20 hours (or pretty much a full a day). 4 hours is a relatively quick half-life c... ...

Alprazolam (G 3721) for opioid withdrawal
2 Replies RSS
WIll an alprazolam G 3721 pill help alleviate opioid withdrawal symptoms? I'm going through it right now. ## Hello, Mack! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Greenstone Limited and they list it as containing 1mg of Alprazolam. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Yes, if your doctor approves of your taking it, it can help with some of the symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and etc. that can occur with opioid withdrawal. Though it likely won't do much for rebound aches and pains. Is there anything else I can help with? ## This tablet is absolutely identical to Pfizer Xanax 1mg (see PDR, code UPJOHN 90) & is manufactured on the same pro... ...

Transitioning from opioids to suboxone

My hubby and I started suboxone 9/9/16. Been taking opioids for a few yrs and have a high tolerance. I waited 24hrs before taking the sub. 8mg starting out. It did not help with the withdrawal symptoms... My husband waited 36hrs before taking his (same dose) we both were miserable for 3 days... Taking one 8mg a day and still no relief. Ended up relapsing bc we couldn't take it anymore. Needing help to get back on track. Why didn't the sub help after taking three doses?? How long should we wait before taking the sub again? After we took opioids again we did get relief from withdraw symptoms... ## It would help if we knew how much opiate you have been taking and what exactly it was. For example.... Like 30mgs of IR morphine three times a day for five years. Sub will start to stack... ...

prescribing opioids and the House of Representatives
Post a Reply
I was watching the House of Reps today on Cspan. They are still discussing what to do with this. I hear them saying how all the doctors, police, all their pertinent people will be there. But of course we are left out of the equation. No one cares what happens to us. My heart goes out to all in this situation I find myself in. Has there been any efforts on petitions, or legal suits? How about a good old fashion sit it in Washington, DC? I have written to anyone I can think of from President Obama to local senators, to lawyers requesting litigation, I have tried News channels and newspapers. They either refuse to return my calls or they take around the issue. WE NEED TO UNITE!! We need have out voices heard. Any one with me? My life is pretty much over at this point. I would rather be dea... ...

I am a T7 paraplegic with severe spasticity and chronic pain due to a bullet in my spine. As of February I have been looking for a Dr that is compassionate and will take me on as a patient. I have been taking a 100mcg/hr fentanyl patch every 72 hours along with 30mg of oxycodone every 6 hours for the last 9 years. Actually it was reduced from a patch every 48 hours and 30mg of oxycodone every 4 hours 2.5 years ago. I left my last pain management Dr after a disagreement with his new Nurse Practitioner and no willingness to help or see me on his part. I am currently in desperate need of a new pain management Dr. My primary care physician chase managed my pain medication for the last 9 months and can not help for much longer as my retirements are beyond her scope of practice.

Morphine Sulfate Oral Solution
2 Replies RSS
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 ... ...

How long would it take to go through a withdrawal from these opioid pain meds such as norcos??? ## Hello, Becky! How are you?

It may take anywhere from a few days to over a month, or so. The FDA lists the withdrawal effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, fever, chills, headache, diarrhea, rebound pain and depression. How long was the person in question taking it and how much were they taking? ...

 Targiniq Er Oxycodone Hydrochloride + Naloxone Hydrochloride
Oxycodone/naloxone is a combination analgesic drug available as modified-release tablets under the trade names Targin (produced by Mundipharma), Targiniq and Targinact. The oxycodone component is an opioid and is responsible for the pain-relieving effects. Naloxone opposes the effects of opioids but is poorly absorbed into the body when given orally, meaning almost all the dose stays within the gastrointestinal tract and reduces the local side effects from the oxycodone. Constipation was sign...
