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.

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression

I am wondering if anybody else out there has taken Hydrocodone and noticed that symptoms of depression are alleviated? I find that many of today's anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs come with unpleasant side effects, whereas while taking Hydrocodone they aren't there. The caveat to all of this is that yes, I know that Hydrocodone and opiates in general can be addictive. So long term use would result in withdrawal symptoms. I'm just wondering who else might agree with me on this? ## I have taken dozens of antidepressants as well as been prescribed antipsycotics and other meds for off-label usage, and nothing has worked effectively over the past 15 years. I will take hydrocodone for a chronic pain condition, and, YES, oh my goodness, YES, it seems to make me immune to a dep...

hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 mallinckrodt

I have been taking 5-500 acetaminophen for my rheumatoid for a few years now with no issues and good blood test results every 3 to 5 months. My new insurance company just changed it to 3-325. I've taken about 80 over the past few weeks and have developed thick red painful rashes on my thighs and waist at belt line. They are made by a different company as well. I made doctor appointmntment but its 4.5 weeks away. Any advice or thoughts. this is the only change in my diet or medicine I can think of. ## Hello, Danny! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you're having. Actually, your insurance company cannot change your medication and/or dosage. That can only be approved by your doctor, even if there is something that they don't cover, or something is unavailable, any chang...

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. Mexico will not allow Oxycodone into the country by mail. Is there any legal way around it, and cheaper? ## I teach english here in Chihuahua Mexico and none of the pharmices here have oxycodone so my doctor gave me Liberaxim it's 2 milgram morphine doesn't take my pain away please help ## I have tablets that are supposed to be 20mg oxycodona tablets from Mexico made by Biogentech.

Please help.. I have been on narcotics for chronic back pain for 19 years and just moved to VA. I need to find a good Dr. that is not afraid to continue with my meds.

What does tramadol from mexico look like?

I saw a DR assistant and she prescribed a medication for me-- Her name is on the Rx bottle with the abv. Aurobindo -- not sure what this means...help ## Hello, Clinton! How are you? Arubobindo is the name of the manufacture of those particular tablets. The FDA classifies Tramadol as an opioid, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I need help identifying a pill from Mexico. It says it's tramadol 50mg and it's in a light tan capsule with no imprints. Is this a legitimate brand? ## I have these generic Tramadol pills from Mexico and the brand says Paliadol, but they are plain white pills with nothing on them. Can you confirm this brand? ##...

Hydrocodone/apap 10-325 manufacturers

For some 6-8+ years now, i have been taking 7.5/325 Hydrocodone (HYDROCO/APAP); generic name Qualitest. The pill is colored (pinkish/orange) with a "v" inscribed on one side; not 100% sure of Manufacturer; possibly NORCO or PAR P.; Qualitest has ALWAYS been the most reliable version of Vicodin/Hydrocodone. At any rate, much to my surprise several months ago, i had a script filled but when i opened vial, it was filled with WHITE (Watson) tablets; i was told that Qualitest was no longer available. The next morning (basically every morning) i awakened with a significant amount of pain and got myself up to take my normal/regular dose but after more than enough time for what would have relieved the pain; i felt NO relief whatsoever; after a second pill, i started to feel nauseous and...

Can i alternate Tylenol 3 with codeine and norco?

Just need to know if I can alternate between norco and Tylenol 3 with codeine? I cannot get any more detailed than that ## Hello, Jenny! How are you? That can be done, as long as your doctor has prescribed them both for you and approves. Note the word ALTERNATE. They should not be taken at the same time. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Are you on any other medications? ## Can I take 1 tablet of Norco 7.5 plus 1 tablet of tylenol 4? ## Not recommended, especially not at the same time. Norco contains one opioid ingredient (Hydrocodone), whereas Tylenol # 4 contains Codeine, which is another opioid ingredient. Also, they both contain Acetamino...
