torbutrol
vetrinary pain med for felines ## I give torbutrol 5 mg. to my dog. The vet gives me 10 pills and charges me $40. each time. Is there a way to get this medication for less? ## I agree - my dog needs this every day and it's 30 pills for $95. Does anyone have an alternative medicine or a website for this? Thanks. ## Ask your vet if the 10 mg. pills would be any less expensive and break them in half - they are scored. Also, if you can afford it, ordering 100 pills at a time is sometimes less expensive. ## You're being ripped off by your vet. I have a holistic vet and I am told they are $1.00 a pill and I have to cut them in quarters (1 pill for 4 uses - only when needed). I don't know your vet, but mine is Holistic and I'd never trade my dog's vet for any other Vet. ## ... ...

torbutrol 5mg
My vet will give a prescription, however, she cannot afford to lower the price of torbutrol 5 mg. Right now I am paying 107.00 for 10 pills and my guy takes it twice sometimes 3 times a day so I really need to get it cheaper. My husband is disabled and on the liver transplant list so I am already paying for medications that are horrible priced. Can anyone tell me where to find it cheaper? ## Hello, Jenny! How are you? I'm sorry that the medication is so expensive and about your husband's condition. I hope he gets his transplant very soon. As to getting it cheaper, have you tried any of the pet medication websites? You can usually order from them and have your vet fax in a prescription. The prices are generally much cheaper, since they don't have the overhead that a veterinar... ...

Turbatrol-vicodin-the same?
I have been taking Vicodin for back pain.... Is Torbutrol the same as Vicodin ? Can I take this? ## Hello, Oliver! How are you? No, they are not the same. Vicodin contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, while Torbutrol contains Butorphanol and you should only take it, if your doctor approves. This is 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 with? ...

Val Torb Syrup For Dogs
does val torb syrup make a dog rest better? and does it have side effects ## Torb/VAL syrup is the opioid Torbutrol (butorphanol) dissolved in V.A.L. syrup. It's usually prescribed to treat mild pain. The V.A.L. syrup is also said to contain B-vitamins, but I've heard that it is mostly added to hide Torbutrol's bitter flavor. As far as side effects go, central nervous system effects (such as sedation, confusion, and dizziness) are considerations with butorphanol. Nausea and vomiting are common. Less common are the gastrointestinal effects of other opioids (mostly constipation). If your dog has been resting a lot more than usual, it's likely due to the sedative effects of the medication. It can often make the animal extremely drowsy so be careful with its use. If need be,... ...

Pink Small Round Pill 0 5 Mg 251
small round pink pill on one side scored other side 0.5 on top 251 on bottom ## Although I can't verify my findings, research I gathered leads me to suspect that this is butorphanol (brand name: Torbugesic or Torbutrol) which is a pain medication that doubles as a cough suppressant. I don't know for certain, but it's most likely to be this. Do you happen to have any pets as well that were taken to the vet? I'm also just wondering if this is a veterinary pill for bronchitis in dogs. If this is the case, then we may have a match for butorphanol. Hope this helps! ## where did you gather your facts on this or did anybody never confirm it? ...

Val Torb For Dogs
Val-Torb was given to my mini doxie for a chronic condition. He weighs 16 lbs and the dosage was 1.5mls 3 times a day but it made him horribly sick and shaky. As soon as I took him off he was OK. Has anyone out there had a problem with this medication? ## What this stands for is Valium, which is a Benzodiazepine that's used for its calming effect and Torbutrol, which is used to relieve pain. Learn more Valium details here. Learn more Torbutrol details here. I don't know what the dosage should be for canines, because veterinary medications are not my speciality, but it sounds like it may have been too much of the Torbutrol for him. Have you contacted your vet? A lower dose or different medication may be necessary. ...

?UNKNOWN?
little round white pill, with 636 on one side, and with FD on the other, it can be split in half on the FD side. ## Sorry, this isn't listed in any of the prescription databases, not even the professional ones. I would have to say it is probably an over the counter item, which aren't regulated and kept track of like prescription drugs, or a foreign med. ## I know that it is some kind of veterinary medication... I just found a bottle so old the label was entire blank, however i tried reading what i could and I think it said torbutrol ## it is torbutol...its a painkiller given to dogs and cats.... i think they rangefrom 1 to 10 mg.'s ## it is methocarbamol 500mg ...

Where Can You Purchase Torbutrol Other Than A Vet
My vet can't get torbutrol anymore. Where else can I purchase it. I have looked everywhere and can't find it. ## Torbutrol is a brand name for Butorphanol tartrate; however it very likely may have been discontinued, just as the other brand of this drug has: Butorphanol (Stadol) is a morphinan-type synthetic opioid analgesic developed by Bristol-Myers. The brand name Stadol was recently discontinued by the manufacturer. IT IS NOW ONLY AVAILABLE IN ITS GENERIC FORMULATIONS, manufactured by Novex, Mylan, Apotex and Ben Venue Laboratories and is available only as Butorphanol tartrate in injectable,tablet, and intranasal spray formulations. SIDE NOTE: Butorphanol is most closely structurally related to Levorphanol - just to suggest another alternative. Based on this information, it s... ...
