Pain Relief Overview

An analgesic drug, also called simply an analgesic (American English), analgaesic (British English), pain reliever, or painkiller, is any member of the group of drugs used to achieve relief from pain (that is, analgesia or pain management). Analgesics are conceptually distinct from anesthetics, which temporarily reduce, and in some instances eliminate, sensation, although analgesia and anesthesia are neurophysiologically overlapping and thus various drugs have both analgesic and anesthetic ef...

drug expirations

I would like to know if Hydroco/apap 10-500mg tablets are still good after a year and for how long they are good. ## Medications have an expiration (usually of 1 year) because by law it must have one. If you had these hydrocodone/apap pills in a dark, cool place such as a kitchen cabinet, bedroom drawer, etc. chances are still fine. Most pills are actually good for two years from the fill date as long as they are cared for properly. If you had them in the medicine chest in the bathroom, (a bad place for medication) then they may have lost some or all of their potency. When a medication like this one becomes older, it is not really dangerous to take it, rather it might have lost some of it narcotic and/or acetaminophen properties. DO NOT USE THIS RULE FOR EVERY MEDICATION ESPECIALLY FOR ...

Updated in Hydrocodone

I live in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. Diagnosed suffering from Degenerative Disc Disease, with Cervical Radiculopathy (one bulging disc) and Lumbar Radiculopathy (two bulging discs). These spinal problems are diagnosed by three (3) recent CAT Scans, with radiologist analyses. And yes, I have ALL of the CAT Scan CDs, and radiologist reports. I went to Frank Howard Bynes, M.D., a retired trauma surgeon, and practicing internal medicine M.D., here in Savannah, Ga, for help with severe pain control. I was written valid prescriptions for: Roxicodone 30 mg; Dilaudid 8 mg; Xanax 2 mg; Fentanyl 100mcg/hr transdermal patch; Soma 350 mg; Neurontin 800 mg. ALL, YES ALL local pharmacies, will NOT honor ANY of these prescriptions. I was a previous patient of David M. Nelson, M.D. here in Sava...

Generic Norco m367 10/325

It's no good. I have to take three at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Anybody else have this problem with M367 - 10/325? Has anyone else noticed that meds from certain manufacturers do not work as well for them? ## Recently went to refill my norco script and they gave me M367 10/325 instead of the yellow 10/325. One of the yellow pills would last 4 hours. With the m367 I have to take 3 at a time for 1 hour of pain relief. Let me know if any of you have encountered the same with M367 10/325. Thank you ## I'm sure there are others that have had similar problems, there can be some slight fluctuations from one generic medication to another, so not all of them work well for everyone that tries them. For example, I can take this same tablet and it really hits me very hard, after tak...

Pain clinics in Kentucky or Ohio that will prescribe oxycodone

I am a 34 year old female that has osteoporosis / bone disc degeneration disease, also hereditary problems. I am in pain constantly and need to find a doctor that will help me. ## Did you find a doctor? Please let me know as I'm in a similar position. I've got 3 bulging discs, a pinched nerve and a few other things going on with my back and neck. I've tried everything from physical therapy to injections and no real relief. My doctor refused to give me any more of the pain meds he'd had me on unless I agreed to back surgery and at this time I don't want to do that and I feel he was only after insurance money. But anyway I've suffered ever since. So I thought someone out here could help me find doctor. Any info you may have would be greatly appreciated. ## Did you ...

Bruised shoulder and potential tissue damage

I'm 70 years old and fell off a chair 7 days ago. Now I have a huge bruise over my abdomen. My Dr said it's probably tissue damage. I'm in agony. I think my collarbone may be broke. Why he didn't ask for an x-ray? Any clues appreciated. I'm also on Aspirin daily. Could that cause extreme bruising? ## Yes, Aspirin thins your blood, which could make you bruise easier, or worse than usual, the FDA also warns about other side effects that may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach irritation. Ref: Aspirin Information As to the x-ray, did you specifically tell him that you were having pain in the collar bone area? Have you tried going to an ER for an evaluation, and x-ray?

Why are prescription prices going up so much?

In Dec. 2015I got 120 Hydrocodone/10/325Acet. and 90 Tamazapam 30mg. I paid around $55. Today I only got the Hydrocodone and it was $81.00. I live in a small town and get my prescriptions filled for years at Brookshires grocery. What is happening? The clerk who has been there years didn't seem to know. I will have to ask my Dr. What a good replacement will be in over the counter meds. ## Patricia, all prescriptions are going up and so is everything else. It is a combination of things that are making the prices go up. With more people on Medicaid and receiving free prescriptions, someone has to pay for that, the cost of making the meds, the salary and insurance for the employees, pharmaceutical heads, rent, utilities, etc for the bulidings where the meds are made, etc. You might want...
