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...

reddish brown pill 51 imprint

This pill is oval and only has a 51 imprint on it. It is white in the inside and has no other numbers but 51 no other imprint or anything. ## This may be a long shot, but there's a 200mg Ibuprofen tablet that's brownish-red and oblong with l2 on one side and blank on the other. If you hold it upside down it could appear similar to 5l, depending on the condition of the tablet? For verification, the National Drug Code is 49035-517 and it appears to be a product of Walmart. Perhaps you can contact your local pharmacy and/or poison control to see if this sounds like a possible match. Whereabouts did you get it from? ## How would a 5 look like a 2, even upside down? Seriously.... Type a "2", then turn your phone upside down and look at it. Does it look like a 5? ## David is c...

800mg ibuprofen i10 pill for toothache

Hi. I have a really bad toothache. I took one i10 pill about three hours ago, but the pain is still killing me. Can I take another one? ## No, it would be best to not take more than prescribed, or to take it more often than you've been instructed by your doctor. The FDA warns that taking too much of can increase your risk of experiencing stomach ulceration, bleeding, liver damage, and hypertension. Have you visited your dentist, yet? They will be the best person to consult on what can be done to rectify this issue. ## I have a severe toothache and have been taking ibuprofen 800mg 3 to 4 times a day, for two days so far. Is this harmful? Is prescription ibuprofen considered an antibiotic? ## It’s the recommended dose but if your toothache is really bad I would go to a dentist t...

L522 oval white pill

What is an oval white pill with imprint L522? ## L522 is Ibuprofen 800 mg manufactured by Perrigo Pharmaceuticals. (NDC 10768-7522). It's a prescription strength NSAID pain reliever. (Normally, an over the counter tablet of Ibuprofen is only 200 mg). ## I’ve been prescribed the 800mg one by my Dr. it is just a slow release version, that’s what he told me. Rather than take a few 200mg now and then, the slow release works in your body continually.

Doctors pain medications

No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to you people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people like you all the time who go from practice to practice with your stories trying to get narcotics. You 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 your 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 con...

white round pill i 135

White round pill, top half says I, bottom says 135..... The back is blank. What is it? ## Hello, Chase! How are you? I'm sorry, but I don't see a listing in the NIH databases for a round tablet with this marking. Could you please double check and post back? I do see one for a tablet with a marking of IP 135 that is round, and white, which is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals, they list it as containing 200mgs of Ibuprofen, which is used to treat pain, fever, and headache. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. ## Allopurinol. Hopefully, because it was just given to my daughter by Walgreens, however, the pill she got from CVS last month looked larger. We've been looking...

Need to identify an orange colored pill with 44-333

Orange Caplet with 44-333 stamped on the body ## A long orange pill with 44-333 stamped on one side of the pill ## Hello, I have been searching all over but I just can't seem to find a pill that matches your description. I was able to find a pill that matches all of your description except instead of 44-333 as the imprint it's a 44-393.

Drug test false positive for THC

I took a drug test for employment & an oral swab was used. I do not use any illicit drugs but I was contacted & told my test came up positive for THC. I do know some people who use marijuana but I understand that it is very rare for a test to come up positive for second-hand smoke, especially with an oral swab b/c it is hard for them to detect marijuana to begin with. I take Ibuprofen at night. Could this have caused it? ## Ibuprofen has been known to cause a false positivr under certain circumstances. You need to ask to re-take it or to perform a more specific test on the previous sample. ## It is very easy to detect THC? I did just read that iboproffin can even show a false positive for LSD of all things? ## I'm on Klonopin and Ranitidine and I keep failing for THC on my t...

Ibuprofen Melfen Can I Take It For A Tooth Pain

hi im dieing will pain nd all i have is melfen 400mg film coated tablets ibuprofen for my tooth ach is this any harm tanks ## Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it's often used for dental pain, but I am not sure how much it will help, though it may take the edge off. Learn more Ibuprofen details here. The main problem with a tooth ache is that it is going to keep lingering and returning, unless you see a dentist and get the underlying problem taken care of, such as getting a cavity filled or having a root canal done, having the tooth extracted or whatever is required. Have you visited a dentist yet? You need to do so as soon as possible and make sure that you tell them what you were taking to treat the pain, before they do anything. Additionally, check with your regul...

Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, and Tylenol

Can someone please explain the difference between Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, and Tylenol? I’m already maxed out on maximum Ibuprofen at 1600 mg a day spread out 4xs a day and a (really low dose of Gabapentin 200 mg 3xs a day) for forearm pain. The Ibuprofen isn’t enough when the pain hits hard and fast despite having a high tolerance for pain. ## Acetaminophen (also known as paracetamol or APAP) is the same thing as Tylenol. Tylenol is just the retail "brand" name. It is not an NSAID. It can be hard on your liver but typically won't cause ulcers or bleeding. Ibuprofen (brand name Advil) IS an NSAID which can increase your risk of bleeding, raise blood pressure and increase the chance of cardiovascular ailments. Tylenol and Ibuprofen are safe to take together and c...

tribedoce dx inj.

How often should I take the inj's.? ## Hi Sidney, When administering anything in this fashion, I think it's probably wise to consult a doctor first just to make sure you're doing everything properly. However, dosing guidelines for the Tribedoce Dx Inj. Solution suggest that patients apply it via deep intramuscular inj. once every 24 hours for up to 5 days. This dosing information is provided by a pharmaceutical company down in Mexico, where the product appears to originate from. But I'm sure there are plenty of doctors here in the US that would be knowledgable about how to get the most out of it, if that's one of your concerns. Hope this helps! ## Where is Tribedoce DX available? It really helps my Mom with her Arthritis and partial hip replacement. ## I tried taking...

Artribion Vitaminado availability

Is it available in Boise, Id? I received some from a friend in California, and it is taking care of my pain. ## I have used this for quite some time. It helps alleviate inflammation and tightness which can be brought on from heavy lifting which is why I have turned to it. Ibuprofen & Motrin is pure utter garbage which is nothing but lethal chemicals! ## @Marla, Artribion Vitaminado appears to be a product of Mexico. I'm also in Boise and have no clue where to find it around here. My guess is that your friend in California probably had to visit Mexico to even stumble upon it, unless of course they got it off the internet. It's certainly not illegal (simply containing OTC vitamins B1, B6 and B12 - which you can find together or separately at virtually any health food store or ...

Bioflu and Alaxan (Ibuprofen + Paracetamol)

My friend took Bioflu and Alaxan (Ibuprofen + Paracetamol) at the same time. The result was severe allergies on her whole body and face... Also caused dizziness, headache and loss of taste. What can she do about it and how many days will it take for the allergies to be gone? Please give us some advice. ## Bioflu contains Chlorpheniramine and Paracetamol, and Alaxan contains Ibuprofen and Paracetamol, so they should not be taken together, it can be very dangerous if someone takes too much Paracetamol, the NIH guidelines warns that no one should exceed 1,000mgs of it in any 8 hour period, and no more than 3,000mgs in any 24 hour period. As to the reaction, yes, it sounds like she is allergic to some ingredient in one of them, but she should have it checked out by a doctor to be safe. It i...

myprodol and coxflam

Can I take myprodol with coxflam at the same time? I have RA and for the first time in a few years my wrist is swollen and very painful. I do not want an inj. ## No, Myprodol contains Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, and Codeine, while Coxflam contains Meloxicam, this both it and hte Ibuprofen are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories that are used to treat the same conditions, and it isn't safe to double up on them, due to the risk of liver damage, liver failure, stomach damage, and stomach ulceration, according to NIH reports. It would be best to stick with one, or the other. What type of shot have you been offered and why don't you want one?

Is there anything else I can help with? ## Ifijusttook two 200mg Advil’s can I take an I7 pill and hour later or is it harmful ## DON’T!!! Those are both ibuprofen, max daily dose is 2400mg. Suggested dose is 600 every 6-8 hours. The Advil (200mg each) are a quick release type and should not be mixed with generic longer release 600s or 800s.
