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. Analgesics include paracetamol (known in North America as acetaminophen or simply APAP), the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as the salicylates, and opioid drugs such a...

Doctors pain medications

No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to you people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people like you all the time who go from practice to practice with your stories trying to get narcotics. You need to go to drug rehab, find a psychiatrist, do physical therapy, lose weight, and get a job!! This is no way to live and we do not want to jeopardize our licenses feeding into your addiction. I have personally been in three serious car accidents (none were my fault) and have had back surgeries, injections, PT etc. but have NEVER taken controlled substances except for two days after surgery. I have chronic back pain but I exercise and take care of myself and go on with my life!! Evidence-based practice tells us that narcotics are no better and pain con...

Oxycodone vs OxyContin For chronic pain

I am currently on 4 30mg oxycodone ir a day and 2 2mg dillaudid a day. I've had 2 major surgeries and I'm I'm only 24 and day in day out in extreme constant pain. My question is would switching to OxyContin the new formula be as effective? Does it have the same euphoria or is it less effective than what I'm on? If anybody can help me out with that I would appreciate it. ## One thing I can say right off the bat is that Oxycontin is an extended release formula of Oxycodone. Some people say that it's not quite as potent as its immediate-release counterpart, but offers much longer relief in return. I do think though, that you'd have be your own best judge when it comes to that, since everyone is different. The thread linked below seems to have good information compar...

150 mg. a day Oxycontin / Oxycodone habit for 4 months

Well unfortunately I really messed up and started taking OC twice a day 12 hours a part. I worked my way up to taking 40-60 mg in the morning and 80 mgs at night. i originally started using after severe depression and anxiety and wanting to feel better to fill an emotional void left by a really bad year in my life which led me to start using. No BS here, I wanted to feel better and unfortunately started using and am on week 14 of my addiction. I have had enough though and am just writing to share my story and experience and will continue to write during my detox. I feel ashamed, nervous, scared, and angry that I began using. It is against everything I knew and knew better. I finally came to the conclusion that I need to stop and came clean with my wife who is being totally supportive. I...

Oxycodone/Percocet generics! Which are most effective?

Hello, First, let me start by saying that I am somewhat opiate naive. I am not in pain management and hopefully won't need to be. I've had scripts here and there for norco and percocet. It is the generic percocet, or more specifically the oxycodone, i'd like to discuss here. Over the past year i've had issues (such as a broken elbow, recurring kidney stones, and a staghorn lodged in my renal pelvis [kidney]), that have lead to several prescriptions for percocet from a total of 4 different manufacturers. Mallinckrodt 10/325, Amneal 7/325, Rhodes Pharmacy 10/325, and AuroBindo 10/325. I've read a lot of reviews about the aforementioned generic manufacturers. The majority of them have been negative especially for Rhodes. Mallinckrodt and AuroBindo are the only two that ...

Is Ol Tram really Tramadol?

Hello, i just received tramadol 50mg. from HAB pharmaceuticals. There are no markings on the pills. Round, white pills. Blister pack says Tramadol 50mg. is it really Tramadol? The pack also says "Ol Tram". ## Hi anned, From what I could gather, OL-TRAM is reported to be a foreign brand name of Tramadol. However, I think its legitimacy depends on where you ordered it from, since as you may know, many of those sketchy websites can often be unreliable. HAB pharmaceuticals has had some complaints in the past, but as I look at their webpage, they do strike me as being a real pharmaceutical manufacturer that produces real meds out of India. So my assumption is that it's probably real Tramadol, but in reality there's no way of being certain if there are no markings to verify th...

Will Synaleve help me?

I haven't had my period in over a year now, and I have been having a sharp pain on my lower abdomen on my right-hand side. Also, I have pains like needless on my tummy, they come and go.. I was given synaleve pills for that. Will that help? ## Hello, Mathabo! How are you? Synaleve is listed as containing Acetaminophen, Codeine and Meprobamate, so it is an analgesic used to alleviate pain. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and constipation. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. However, it will not help you get your periods. Did the doctor provide you with a diagnosis? ## I had lower back spinal surgery 3-4 years ago. Since then I get pain down my left leg into my foot and toes, which really becomes terrible at times, especially when...
