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 as ...

Teva's new Oxycontin 80mg pill

So I've been keeping my eyes open for the new oxycontin generic to come out since Purdue lost it's patent. But for the longest time nothing emerged, no company was coming forward with a oxycontin substitute. I just saw that Teva brand has made a Oxycontin generic FINALLY. But I can't confirm a couple of things. First is how long has this generic been available? 2nd is I'm getting conflicting info on if they only make the 80mg pill or I'm seeing they make the 10mg, 20mg, 40mg and 80mg (NO 30's and NO 60's)!! And of course the other question, how much does this generic cost? Are they gonna charge a crazy amount of money or are they actually going to be affordable?? Has anyone out there tried these yet? If so how do they compare to the the old school original OC...

OxyContin for Methadone Withdrawal

I take 100mgs of methadone every day for the past 12 years. I ran out of methadone and can't go to my Dr for 2 days. Will OxyContin 20mg help with the methadone withdrawal? If anyone knows please let me know. ## Hello John. No it will not. I have been on methadone for over 30 years, been there done that. You say you have 2 more days to go to see your Dr. Well, as you know, methadone is a long acting medication. You would be fine the first day, especially taking 100mgs. Without it, you might not feel your best, but won't withdraw. But the second day you may start to get sick. You could try to take it for the second day. Everyone is different. It may take the edge off of feeling sick and your pain, but does your Dr do drug urinalysis? Because if he does and you take the oxycontin ...

23 yrs with rsd n crps

How is hydramorphone and/or oxy hcl ir if I've been on MSIR 30, oxy 10/325, valium 10 3x day ## Hello Billy! How are you? What are the dosages of the Hydromorphone and Oxycodone? I'm sorry, but I'm unable to give you a comparison, without these additional details. Can you please post back and clarify? 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. Valium also carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. ## Hydromorphone is Dilaudid. A step up in opiods. But the oral form is not nearly what the IV form for relief. Maybe a pain pump with Dilaudid? Bu...

Updated in MSIR

I am taking neurontin 800mg 2x's a day, amitriptyline 50mg at bedtime, indomethacine 50mg 3x's a day and tizanidine 4mg 2x's a day and my doctor just gave me lyrica 75mg 2x's a day. I am a 31 year old stay at home mom who has been diagnosed with RSD/CRPS 3 years ago and recently hurt my back. I would like to know if any red flags should be raised. I am worried for my childrens sake because they could be home with me when or if any bad reactions occur. Any advice? ## What is RSD/CRPS? ## RSD?CRPS is called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. It is nerve damage that causes my leg to be in constant pain. I can help ease my pain, but it will never go away. I have gone to several doctors and they say that everything that can be done, short of a spi...

Opiates and lack of physicians willing to prescribe

"First do no harm." The starting line in the Hippocratic Oath. I have been a chronic pain patient off and on for 20 years. Should have been ON for the duration, but idiot overdosers and Congress got involved. Drs. are not fulfilling their path. Legitimate pain patients like myself live a miserable existence. We are not seeking drugs to get high or to sell, but to at least dull our pain. I contemplate suicide daily as a way to not feel the constant pain. There is no joy, no happiness and nothing to look forward to when even the smallest task brings tears to your eyes. Physicians are afraid to prescribe meds they know will alleviate pain because a bunch of bureaucrats, far removed from reality, dictate what they can prescribe. How unreasonable is that? Congress doesn't know me...

Blue pill marked N 23

Found a blue pill, marked N over 23... Cannot locate what this is on any website...was told is was oxycodone 30mg but I believe it could be OTC ibuprofen...any help would be appreciated. ## Right - these pills are most likely Oxycodone 30 mg manufactured by Novel Labs (NDC 40032-431) - they are described as round, blue with imprint n 23. Inactive Ingredients: - Microcrystalline Cellulose - Silicon Dioxide - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato - D&C Yellow No. 10 - FD&C Blue No. 2 - Magnesium Stearate ## It's definitely not listed as being a marking used in the U.S. on any Oxycodone tablet, nor any other prescription medication. I am leaning towards siding with you that it is most likely an over the counter product and the blue color makes me wonder if it might be something...

information on Hydroprofen

what are thr uses of hybroprofen? 2 isomers (active & inactive) of hybroprofen & the effect of each by itself & with another drug. ## Hydroprofen is a combination medication that contains Hydrocodone and Ibuprofen, so it combines a narcotic analgesic with a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. I do not, however, have a list of the inactive ingredients, since this particular one isn't available in the U.S. I'm sorry. Learn more Ibuprofen details here. Learn more Hydrocodone details here. And the possible interactions with another drug would depend on what other drug you are asking about. There are many that it can interact with and I can't list them all. Did you have any drugs in particular you wanted to ask about? ## Can you get hydrocodone without Tylenol or ibuprofe...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Meds In Orange County Ca

I am 50 and work a hard labor job for 25 years. I am in chronic pain constantly. I want a better quality of life and to continue to work. I need a Doctor in Orange County, CA that can prescribe Norco for my pain. ## The main issue here may be due to the fact that you're asking for/looking for, a specific pain medication, especially one that contains a narcotic. Many doctors will see that as drug seeking behavior, it is something they are taught to watch out for in new patients. The best thing you can do is to see a new doctor and make sure that they receive a full copy of your medical records, so your records can speak for themselves. A doctor will be more likely to follow the information and prescribing practices of their fellow physicians. Does anyone know a good doctor in the are...

white oblong pill with l1

Found a white oblong oval pill with L 1 or it looks like a 1 is this oxycodone? no other imprints on it ## Based on the description provided the closest match I'm finding is a round white pill marked "L 1"; which is identified as a 20mg Famotidine tablet, used for treating ulcers, as well as symptoms of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and heartburn. Now I realize you mentioned that your pill was oval/oblong-shaped, so I don't know if this is a definitive match or not. Also with the possibility of the "1" not being a "1" (as you mentioned it "looks like a 1"), there could potentially be other close matches too. Does anyone else recognize this pill as something different? ## This pill is no doubt, as in 95% sure, a benzodiazepine called loraz...

Suboxone use, need help getting off

I have been on suboxone for over 2 years now. I have attempted several times to stop using them but I haven't been successful. I take 1-2mg a day. I have tried weening more than that but suffered terrible withdrawals. I would like to know if anyone has been successful at this or have found another way to stop using suboxone. I thought this was a miracle drug for opioid dependency but its worse than opioid addiction. ## From what I can tell based on your description, I would honestly consider asking a pain clinic for assistance in tapering, since it seems to effect you so significantly. Just keep in mind that you definitely aren't alone on this matter. There are quite a few threads posted here with individuals trying to withdrawal from this dangerous drug. In the meantime you may...
