Anesthetic Overview

An anesthetic (or anaesthetic) is a drug to prevent pain during surgery. A wide variety of drugs are used in modern anesthetic practice. Many are rarely used outside anesthesia, although others are used commonly by all disciplines. Anesthetics are categorized into two classes: general anesthetics, which cause a reversible loss of consciousness, and local anesthetics, which cause a reversible loss of sensation for a limited region of the body while maintaining consciousness. Combinations of an...

what is the tribedoce dx injection used for
Post a Reply Share
Besides the DX the box I have say “lidocaina” which I am assuming is Lidocaine, a pain relief drug. My wife wants to use this for hip pain from hip displacia but I just want to make sure that there will be no harmful side effect. Seeing that this also had a corticosteroid in it, Dexamethasone, I am inclined to NOT inject her with it because that is a class of drugs that can have serious side effects if used incorrectly or by the wrong person.

Butesin Picrate - compounding
23 Replies RSS Share
Hello. I'm from Australia and had been sorry to learn that Butesin Picrate cream was removed from commercial sale. My daughter (a registered pharmacist with Pharmaceutical Compounding exp.) recently suffered burns while she was home cooking: I said my "often quoted regret" about the cream's discontinuation. We have - between us - located the original (1%) pharmaceutical compounding instructions for it and provided it's not large scale manufacture I can arrange to put you in touch with the compounding pharmacy - only in limited supply for individuals though (like many of us who grew up with this cream in our mothers' first aid boxes!). One ingredient (apparently) had cancer-causing discussions at scientific circles... and that's part of the PR disaster that pr...

Is Suboxone harmful before surgery?
3 Replies RSS Share
I'm having surgery on my wrist tomorrow morning, but I took 2 mgs of Suboxone at 10 am this morning. Will I be ok with anesthesia and pain meds during surgery? ## It will prevent the pain medications from working, in most cases. That's why you are usually told to stop it several days, before surgery. The FDA warns that it also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache. How are you doing? What happened? ## What did they use for your surgery? I had a forearm injury on a Friday and was lifeflighted last year (September) and surgery was the following Monday. I was in too much pain to ask and wanted to know what the sergeants used which lasted for 10 days afterwards. Hopefully your surgery went...

The letter k looks similar to @ but with a k. ## I really want to know the answer to this question too!

Was my daughter overdosed?
Post a Reply Share
My 9yr old daughter passed away after having her tonsils and adenoids out. We're still waiting on the autopsy to come back but we got the postmodern toxicology report and it said she had midazolam 72 ng/ml and morphine free 34 ng/ml. Was she overdosed?

Help identifying a topical compound with the following abbreviations: LI 2.5%, PR 2.5%, CY 0.1%, GA 6%, AR
1 Reply RSS Share
What is "LI 2.5%/PR 2.5%/CY 0.1%/GA 6%/AR"? I found it in my mother's medicine cabinet and she doesn't remember what it's for. ## These are specialized ointments ordered by a doctor and filled by a compounding pharmacy, but going by what I've learned, my best guess from what you've listed is that it contains Lidocaine (which is as topical anesthetic), Pregabalin (which is used to treat nerve pain), Cyclobenzaprine (which is a muscle relaxant), and Gabapentin (which is also used to treat nerve pain.) However, you can always contact the pharmacy to be sure. They should be able to tell you the precise ingredients, in case I'm wrong, as well as why it was prescribed. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, irritation, drynes...

Meditator/Ketamine for depression
34 Replies RSS Share
I will go to the states to take ketamine treatment for depression. Ketamine is probably a great pill for depression, as recent research indicated. By the way, i am searching for friends who may have the same problem and same opinion--want ketamine--in states. I already tried to commit suicide 4 times. I entered in Japanese military forces for about 6 months, I've done Shikoku Henro meditation everyday 2-8 hours. i don't exercise everyday, due to these struggles. My mind is so much better. However, I feel my limit recently. final solution is ketamine, i recognized. Why I still have heavy problem, maybe I try to juggle too much heavy stress simultaneously. these stressors make me really sick. If you are interested in my article, be my friend please? You can post back on here. {edi...

Lidocaine patches
2 Replies RSS Share
I have very severe and advance DDD and have been taking MS-Contin which has been helpful. However I always have severe pain every time I walk around 15 steps or so due to severe muscle spasms. For 12 years the only relief I would get would be to stop walking and try to stretch the muscle in my back and the spasms. After a few more yards I would have to stop walking again. I have been on every muscle relaxant that has ever been made with no help. I am at a point that I will soon need a wheelchair when I leave my home. This past weekend I had a chance to try Lidocaine patches and I could not believe when I started to walk my pain was gone. While my doctor has no problem writing a prescription for them my Medicare part D provider (Cigna) will not pay for them because the FDA has only appro...
