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 ...

n358 on one side and 10 the other

Want to make sure pharmacy gave me the correct medication. I had taken some pain medication that has M367 but today the pharmacy gave me a pill with the letter "n" on the left side and "358" on the right side of the score line. On the other side it has number "10". Just want to make sure I got the correct medication for pain. Not more or less of what my Dr has been giving me. I take a 10mg dose. I am supposed to take 10mg of hydrocodone and 325mg of acetaminophen. Want to make sure that is what I got today. ## I had to double check also. They are hydro 10s. No worries. ## RE: n358 hydrocodone Why do people always say "I found this pill"?... B.S. why can't they just say I got this pill, trying to make sure it's what I think it is or bought or whate...

upside down v on one side 36 05

If the V on the other side of the pill is upside down, does that mean it's fake? ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? No, that does not necessarily mean it is a fake, that can vary, depending on how they fell into that particular pill press at the particular manufacturing facility. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi I'm Stephanie I have a similar issue I have a bottle of pills of alprazolam 2mg marked Y on one side and 21 on the other rectangular form I had broken a few in half and when I went to piece them together I noticed that they didn't match up on both sides so I went ...

Mallinckrodt cheap hydrocodone returns!

I'm sure they're more than a few of you out there that might be returning to look into basically the same problems with Mallinckrodt Pharm"s Hydrocodone/APAP 7.5/325, commonly referred to as Norco. About 4 years ago, Mallinckrodt dumped a bunch of this product on the US market. I have been taking Norco for about 12 years & have always been at about the same dose and never had any problems until I ran into this brand. I've had Actavis, Watson, & Qualtest brands with relatively no noticeable difference. Then four years ago, I filled my usual prescription and came home to find a different shaped tablet with M366 on the side. Almost immediately after my first dose, first came the stomach ache, then the headache, and eventually the feeling of withdrawal. I went to the...

Mallinckrodt Hydrocodone

I have been using brand name Norco 10 325 for some time. recently because of the DEA I cannot get them and nowi mallinckrodt s the only drug my pharmacy sells. I have read so many bad things about them on the internet, frankly I am about to have a nervous breakdown as I recently had rotator cuff surgery and I have to have the pain control to complete my therapy. I have heard good things but everyone says that the one to say the good things are crazy. help!!! ## I understand your concern, however, the only way to know if they will help you, or not, is to actually try them! You're not doing yourself any good by getting upset over it, please calm down. :-) It isn't that the people on either side of what you've read are crazy, it's that everyone is different, so some may not...

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...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado

I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

Pain medication seeking

No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people all the time who go from practice to practice with stories trying to get narcotics. Patients need to go to drug rehab, find a psychiatrist, do physical therapy, lose weight, and get a job!! This is no way to live and we do not want to jeopardize our licenses feeding into addiction. I have personally been in three serious car accidents (none were my fault) and have had back surgeries, injections, PT etc. but have NEVER taken controlled substances except for two days after surgery. I have chronic back pain but I exercise and take care of myself and go on with my life!! Evidence-based practice tells us that narcotics are no better and pain control than ibuprofe...

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...

small round light yellow pill blank on one side and a triangle on the other

What is this pill? It came from the Dominican republic and I'm told its an OC 40mg ## It's not any Oxycontin/Oxycodone that I'm familiar with. Can you provide a better description of the triangle? Is it just an outline, or a full triangle? Learn more Oxycodone details here. ## Its an imprint. Its from the Dominican republic so I don't think you'd be familiar with it if you're only familiar with American pills. ## Yes its real oxycodone 40 milligrams ... it has a triangle on one side ## Hey Jason how do you know what that pill is. I was cleaning out an old bag and found a couple in there. They are small and off white with just a triangle imprint. Never seen one before. But I heard its Oxy 40mg. Is that possible ## Did you find out what it was? I just got one and a...
