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...

Big Pharma's Lockdown On Legitimate Chronic Pain Patients

Is narcotic pain medicine becoming a thing of the past? Why are doctors across America phasing out the practice of prescribing effective pain medication? Will big pharmaceutical companies ever truly understand what it's like to face the other side of the coin? Lately there's been a musty scent in the air surrounding the use of prescribed narcotic pain medication. Many doctors appear to be running scared as the DEA scours through fields of medical records, inspecting prescribing pads like a mouse scavenges for food in a dimly lit cellar. Should the day come when doctors recommend Ibuprofen to a feeble man who's been involved in a terrible car accident (breaking several bones / requiring extensive surgery), is this doctor at risk of malpractice when there are more effective op...

Is There A Representative For All Chronic Pain Patients

Is there a rep. for the ppl. who were controlled on 3 OxyContin OC a day, who now suffer and have proved the new OPs DON'T WORK? NO MATTER WHAT PURDUE OR FDA SAY? We need a rep. for us chronic pain patients, who were controlled and NOW SUFFER & CAN'T DO MORE THAN LAY IN BED CRYING. ## Unfortnately, other than reporting your complaints to the FDA, there isn't much else you can do. I'm sorry you are having such a frustrating experience with it. Have you tried to talk to your doctor about using any alternative medications, such as Fentanyl, or the time released Morphine? ## I've been on fentanyl for 15 yrs until they changed patch, it didn't help that's why my dr.put me on OxyContin and that lasted 5 mo. Till they changed to OP, then they stopped working.So ...

Greatest Pain Med Doctor Helps People In Pain With Narcotics

I found this great Pain Specialist who actually helps people with legitimate problems that have found that they are only helped with Narcotics. This Doctor does not treat you like a drug fiend and actually believes you when you tell the truth. He then prescribes a reasonable amount of narcotics to help make your life better. Once you have proved you are honest you don't have to take a drug panel every month either and he writes a 3 month supply just like with heart medication. Sound Like a dream? It is; at least from my 20 years of experience of being a pain patient. Why can't people who have real medical problems get real medical help when they need it? I think some Doctors need to get their butts sued and medical licences lost for lack of proper care of people in 24x7 agony! T...

Chronic Pain patients must get organized to lobby for their rights.

People with chronic, intractable pain are being discriminated against and it is imperative that we join forces to fight for our civil rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Please send information on existing associations and organizations that can help or how to establish one that can help pain patients fight for their rights with petitions, letters; emails to send to these state and federal politicians that are determined use prescription drugs, doctors and pharmacies to further their political careers. Drug abuse is not the same as opiate dependent because of chronic pain management and there are over 100 million people living with pain and many of us are unable to live without medication. If the deaths from abuse seems high, the suicides from pain patients that are un...

lupin norco 5 325

I take Norco 10 / 325 and they aren't doing anything. I think I was even having withdrawals sneezing diarrhea and come to find out CVS carries Lupin. At first I thought I was building up a tolerance to the pain medication but it was like overnight. This can be traced back to when I got the medication from CVS from the manufacturer Lupin. I have about a 30 day supply left and can't get anymore but I definitely will not be going back there. I will be calling pharmacies to see who does not carry Lupin. ## Omg im so glad im not alone on the pupil brand. I literally hurt all over and they wear off in about 2 hours. I'm having a hard time finding my yellow ones and when i do call looking for them im treated like crap. I just want to cry. I have severe disk degeneration and need 5 ...

Stil Pane side effects

HI, I AM TAKING 14 STILPANE TABS A DAY & I WANT TO STOP. WHAT SHOULD I DO? I AM A MOTHER AND A WIFE. ## Have you consulted a doctor for assistance? Stilpane contains 370mgs of Paracetamol, 185mgs of Meproamate and 8mgs of Codeine. And if you have been taking that many of them in a day, there are actually 2 possible problems. The Codeine is a narcotic, so it can be habit forming and addicting, a sudden cessation of it, in such instances, will cause withdrawal effects, such as fever, chills, nausea and vomiting. However, the most concerning ingredient, wit your level of usage is actually the Paracetamol, long-term use of just regular amounts can cause liver and kidney damage. Amounts over 4,000mgs in a day can be toxic and, in some cases, this have resulted in death. With the amounts ...

Doriden/glutethimide availability

Does anyone know where one could obtain glutethimide or it's brand name Doriden (CIBA Company)? Am in Canada where Doriden was discontinued in late 1980s and I was told Doriden discontinue was international. Perhaps there is now a generic form containing glutethimide available now as I would assume CIBA trademark rights would have by now expired. As the benzodiazapine replacement meds for Doriden are more addictive and dangerous (especially if mixing with alcohol & other drugs) it sure would be great to be able to go back to Doriden or glutethimide which were more effective and safer. A shame that the public was switched over to benzodiazipines (i.e. lorazapam, diazapam) when a better/safer product was available all in the name of profits and economics. Any help out there is mos...

Camber Pharmaceuticals Generic Percocet

Just got Camber Pharm generic Percocet at Walgreens instead of the Actavis brand. It's giving me an upset stomach and causing me to feel weird. Has anyone else had a similar reaction? ## What is the dosage? Can you please post back and clarify? Is it the yellow tablet with T 194 imprinted on it? (NDC 31722-194, 10/325 dosage) Or is it another variation of the dosage from Camber? Percocet is a narcotic analgesic. The FDA warns that it's risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. Editor's note: the information below is from message # 294 which displays the inactive ingredients (fillers) as listed on the manufacturer's website. Inactive Ingredients: - colloidal silicon dioxide - croscarmellose sod...

small white pill with a m in a circle on one side and a slash on the other side ## small white pill with a circled m on one side and a slash on the other ## I need to know what a small white pill with a M in a circle and a line on the other side, Because my niece is living with me and I will not tollerate drug use in my house. ## Hello, The pill you are describing sounds an awful lot like the logo of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, when you say the M is in a circle do you mean that it's outlined by a square perhaps? I provided a picture below of what I'm referring to. Also are you sure that there are no other markings on the pill other than the score and the letter M? Perhaps some letters or numbers above the score? If the pill is what I think it is and has no other markings it is...

Round white pill V 2110

I'm confused about this round white pill with a V on one side and 2110 on the other... Is it a high blood pressure med or Percocet? ## Hello, Cara! How are you? Vintage Pharmaceuticals lists this tablet as containing 10mgs of Amlodipine, which is used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What is this pill? It's a white round pill with V on one side and 2110 on the other. I would like to know if this is a Percocet 10mg?
