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 ...

diluadid2mg why don t they tell you that it takes a good 50 min to work
2 Replies RSS
I have been given diluadid2mg. and ate alot of them, because they didn't seem to work. I finally realized that they (diluadid2mg) work in about 50 minuates. Why don't the doctors tell you that? ## Hello, Sally! How are you? You should never take more than what has been prescribed, doing otherwise puts you at risk of an overdose that could be fatal. Additionally, there are almost no oral medications that work instantly. They all take time to work, because they must be digested and then processed into your blood stream. This is 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. Unless a medication is designated as instant release, it will usually take at least 20 minutes t...

Pain relief for herniated discs in my T5-T6 & T9-T10
3 Replies RSS
After multiple (5) trips to the emergency room for severe back, spines & stomach pain I was finally given an MRI & X-RAYS which revealed I have 2 herniated discs & arthritis in my back. The herniated discs are located in my T5-T6 & T9-T10 area. The emergency room doctor who ordered my tests did perscribe me 5mg oxycodone to help subdue the pain until I was able to see my Dr monday. She also explained in grave detail what to expect from this medication & possible side effects along with becoming dependant to the medication if not properly taken. But before my MRI & X-RAYS were taken the emergency rooms prescribed me over 8 different non-narcotic pain medication, a steroid along with an anti-inflammatory medication. Now my doctor is having me go to physical therapy...

Is It Safe To Take 20mg Of Percocet And 4mg Hydromorphone Together
21 Replies RSS
Is It Safe To Take 20mg Of Percocet And 4mg Hydromorphone Together every 4 hrs? ## I'm sorry, but there is actually no 20mg Percocet tablet. Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone and is only available with a maximum of 10mgs of the Oxycodone. Did you mean just a regular Oxycodone tablet, like the generic for Roxicodone, which is available in a 20mg dosage? Have these both been prescribed by the same doctor? Many times, different narcotics are prescribed together, to try to help someone get better control of pain. A lot of times a person may given a regular release of time released narcotic, along with an instant release or regular release, respectively, so one can help control their pain faster, while the other one has the chance to kick in. When using 2 narcotics together, ...

I have small white pill with 54 733. I know it's Morphine but is it extended release or immediate? And can I break in half or even fourths? In a lot of pain right now and I am at work. Need some relief. Thank you!! ## The pill you have is Morphine sulfate (15 mg); NOT an extended release version.

what does a 10 mg generic percocet look like
11 Replies RSS
Show me how the 10mg with no 325.want to see color size ## I'm sorry, but once a medication is available as a generic, it is manufactured by many different companies. All of the tablets are different and have different markings, so I cannot possibly post details on all of them for you. However, if you have a tablet that you are questioning and post back with its description and the markings on it, I will gladly check for you to see what it contains. Additionally, all Percocet tablets contain Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, if you are looking for information on one with the Acetaminophen, then it is just an Oxycodone tablet. This is 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 constipat...

I have Hep-C and am taking oxycodone-acetaminophen for severe knee pain. Meanwhile, my liver is getting worse. My "doctor" a P.A. says there is no oxycodone without acetaminophen. My hematologist says there is...and that I should be on it. Who's correct here and what should I do? ## There certain is Oxycodone available without Acetaminophen, it is sold under the brand names Roxicodone, which is a regular release formulation and an instant release one called OxyIR, both of which are also available as generics. Learn more Roxicodone details here. If you're just seeing the PA, that may be the issue, as they do not have as much knowledge as doctors. I'd suggest you ask to see an actual doctor to discuss the issue. Is tehre anything else I can help with? ## Oxycontin is a...

Difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 vs white pill same strength but u03. Both say sub for norco.
106 Replies RSS
Just want to know difference between both pills, beside Manufacturers. I was taking Hydocodone-Acetaminophen 10-325 yellow pill #1096 on one side a V on other side. I was then switched to a white oval pill with the same strength, but has U03 on one side. both say substituted for Norco. ## Hello, Chula! How are you? That is the only difference. When a medication is available for generic production, it is usually manufactured by several different companies, because this creates market competition to help keep prices down. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Even though both are ge...
