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 ...

Kirkland extra strength muscle joint pain

Just bought Kirkland acetaminophen & methocarbamol combo bottle. However it now has a 094 on one side of the pill. It never had any imprint before. Is this a change or a mistake? ## Gary, I haven't been able to verify the 094 imprint on the tablet. Is this an over the counter product from the US? I didn't know that Costco has a tablet with methocarbamol in it, their website doesn't list it. ## Yes OTC in Canada Costco. I sent an email to the company to inquire - should hear back on Monday - will let you know what they say. ## Ah ok, that explains it. I'd be interested to know what you hear back. They really need to loosen up out here in the US. I'm sure those tablets work great. Thanks! ## My doctor prescribed me Metracarbatol for my Rheumatoid Arthritis. It did ...

opana or fentanyl confused about dosing

Hello. I have been on 25 mcg of fetanyl patch every 48 hours for 9 months and 15mgs of oxycodone 4 times daily for breakthrough pain. I am thinking about getting off of the patch. How much Opana or (Oxymorphone) would be the equivalent of 25mcg of the fentanyl patch? How much Opana or (Oxymorphone ER) would be the best dose to switch to with no withdrawals? ## Hello Gia! How are you? Is the patch helping? Why do you wish to stop using it? You need about 2.8mgs of Oxymorphone to be equivalent to each 25mcg Fentanyl patch, but there are going to be differences in the time release duration, and dosing frequency. On your doctor can help you decide if your doing so would be safe for you, and the best way to do so. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, an...

20-325 oxycodone / acetaminophen

I have been taking qty of 120/mo,10-325 (percocet) for 2yrs with no side effects. My new MD reduced the qty to 90 and all was ok. He then reduced the qty to 60/mo 2 weeks ago and now my back pain has increased so much I can no longer continue my 1/2 mile daily walks. On his progressive timetable that qty is to be reduced to 45/mo which will be intolerable. I think I will be ok taking the same strength for 75/mo or would I be better off taking a qty of 60/mo 20-325 extended release? I am 84 yrs old and do not smoke or drink. ## Has he stated why he wants to lower it so much? May doctors are trying to be extra cautious about how much they prescribe of controlled substances, and why they prescribe them, since they do have to account for every prescription. If the government feels they are ...

Taking Instaflex with Tramadol

This will be my first time taking Instaflex. How am I supposed to take it? I am currently taking Tramadol 50mg for knee pain. In my right knee I have no cartilage left in it. It is basically rubbing bone on bone. I need to know the success rate with both drugs. ## Tramsdol,gambinton,ibroproytin andare instaflex, cantina thèse be taKen together ## Instaflex is not considered a medication, it is classified as a supplement. It contains Turmeric, Resveratrol, Boswella extract, collagen, hyaluronic acid, and bioperine. These are believed to help with joint pain, and inflammation, but Instaflex is not FDA approved, and hasn't been proven to help. Some people report good results with it, and if your doctor approves, there is usually no harm in trying it. Having recently started having...

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...

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 ...

Large Oblong White Pill No Imprint But Scored In The Middle

found some large oblong white pills that were cut in half. They were in a pill box with tylenol and advil. These white ones had no marking except for a vertical line down the middle where they were cut in half. Any clues to what they may be? ## I'm sorry, but if there are no markings, it is going to be difficult to narrow down exactly what these tablets may contain. We can rule them out as being a U.S. prescription medication, since they are all required by law to have unique markings to enable their identification. However, it could be any one of a large number of over the counter items, there is even a small chance it could be a foreign medication. Did you find these in the U.S.? Does anyone else have a idea of what these might be? ## the small white oblong tablets are being sold ...

Pain Medication Shame

First of all, I hate taking pain meds but I was almost completely bedridden for 2 yrs. They gave me my life back and I'll be grateful for the rest of my life. My insurance company dropped me right before I was gonna have surgery to get some relief. So I had no choice but to go with the pain meds. I've been on oxycodone 30/150 per month (5 a day) and MS Contin 200mg 2 times daily since 2009. Had breaks when I could. My point is, nobody knows what my daily life is like. I feel ashamed every month getting refills. Maybe it's in my head but the staff at the pharmacy gives me that "pill seeker" look. I guess all that matters is my doctor trusts me and he knows my complete history. I know I'm not taking them for fun. I'd much rather be normal. Can anyone relate to ...
