Pain Relief Overview

An analgesic or painkiller is any member of the group of drugs used to achieve analgesia, relief from pain. Analgesic drugs act in various ways on the peripheral and central nervous systems. They are distinct from anesthetics, which temporarily affect, and in some instances completely eliminate, sensation.

Looking for a Pain Doc that will prescribe me stronger meds

I had 2 back surgeries in the last 2 years and the 1st failed(lumbar fusion), pain only gets worse and my doctor does not prescribe anything stronger than 5mg Oxycodones 4x day, I explained that they don't get the job done but he insists that this is the strongest he can go!!! Please help me, I am at Palm beach county but work in Broward so any of them work. Thanks ## To be honest; you are really fortunate to have found a doc to prescribe THAT much narcotics in this day and time!! There are ppl all over with severe pain that cannot get any narcotic pain control. Whatever you do; DON'T mess up with that doc unless you HAVE another to take his place! You could ask for other meds to take with your controlled drugs; like muscle relaxers, steroids, ect. Take care, God bless..

Pain control problems with Fibromyalgia

Have tried Lyrica, Gabintin,Cymbalta,Prozac. Only Percocet with a little Valium seems to help a bit. That is starting to become ineffective.Cant exercise due to incompletely diagnosed back issues pending an MRI. What else can I do or try? I am losing mind from constant pain! Please help... ## Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, so it may be the Oxycodone that's helping you. It is available in higher doses in both regular and time released formulations, without the Acetaminophen. Have you ever asked your doctor about trying it? ## Sorry for not answering sooner. Forgot I o posted this thread! I guess it's the Fibro Fog. Anyway my dr won't go past the level of Percs unless I go to Pain Management dr. Tried that once & they treat everyone like junkies. Has anyone...

rhodes pharm 30mg oxycodone

Hi, After 12 years of taking the blue 30's the pharmacy gave me these big white tabs. My question is why are the blue more potent than the white from Rhodes Pharm. Is it the quality of the ingredients? The brand Roxi you cant find anymore why is that? ## Generic medications are allowed to differ from the name brand in the amount of the active ingredients by as much as plus or minus 20% as decreed by the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984. They also don't have to measure against each other, just the name brand, so some generics may be slightly stronger or weaker than another. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. The name brand is ...

Rhodes pharm / NP 20 oxycodone

Yes I'd be very grateful if someone could help me ASAP. I'm a five-time cancer patient Survivor in about to go on hospice. I have a question regarding Rhodes Pharmacy that makes a white round pill with NP on one side and the other side 20. When I looked it up it said that it was oxycodone hydrochloride. It didn't say if it was instant release or extended release which I really need to know? The other question is if it's just like Roxicodone but just a different Pharmaceutical Company and if it's just 20 mg of oxycodone with no other active ingredients but normal fillers and stuff? I'd appreciate as many replies ASAP thank you so much! ## Were you referring to the tablet with the imprint RP 20? If so, yes, it contains 20mgs of Oxycodone, in an immediate release fo...

Fusion surgery pain management

Had back fusion surgery. Only 6 weeks of low dose norco. Ended up with nerve pain in my foot (zapping shocks that will take the strongest person down). Ortho doc said It would go away possibly in 6 weeks, maybe longer. Ortho surgeon they will never give anyone any opioids past 6 weeks no matter what. He tells me to go to pain management but he does not recommend or refer for any one of his patients to a pain management clinic. Says he does not want the responsibility of that. Truth is he doesn't want docs asking why he give very little pain meds or have his patients being referred back to him. He said to go to my regular doc. So I did see my regular doc and they said I have to go back to my surgeon as it's his responsibility. One time the pain was so bad I went to ER, they said ...

Oxycodone I8

I get 10 mg. Endocodil in Mexico made by BioGenTec. It is supposed to be the same as the oxycontin prescribed to me in the U.S. However it is not the time released version that I prefer, and is very expensive.
