I get pains down my leg usually when the weather changes from warm to cold and when it rains. I have always taken Norgesic Forte as soon as the pain starts and it always takes care of my pain. I can no longer get Norgesic Forte and the substitute my Pharmist told me to ask my Doctor for does not work. What other medications should I ask my Doctor for. I am in pain daily ## Hi Barney, Sorry to hear about your situation. I can't find any information on why norgesic was discontinued, but I think if you were to look into other Rx pain management options, there's always the usual list of narcotics to choose from; Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Percocet, Norco, Dilaudid, Opana, Fentanyl, etc...Your doctor would probably know better than anyone else, which of these medications might be most a... ...

why was orphenedrine compound forte discontinued
I am trying to determine why orphenedrine compound forte was discontinued and if there is a replacement. ## You can still get Norgesic which is orphenedrine citrate, the same main ingredient as in Norgesic Forte. I took Norgesic Forte for my migraines and it worked wonderfully. When it was taken off the market, my dr switch me to regular Norgesic and had me take 2 excedrin along with it. This completes the ingredients that were in Norgesic Forte and give me the same result. ## Thank you for the information regarding orphenedrine and excedrine. What dosage orphenedrine are you using? ## Please correct me if I'm wrong, but apparently Orphenedrine is only available in dosages of 60 to 100mg; both of which can be taken every 8 hours according to the "general" dosing guidelines I... ...
