A doctor's opinion on 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...

Does Ardosons contain Ibuprofen?

I want to know because they say not to take ibuprofen with the covid-19 being here in the US. ## No, Ardosons is listed as containing Indomethacin, and Methocarbamol, but the Indomethacin is an NSAID, so it is in the same drug class as the Ibuprofen. Given the lack of information, I'd say its best to be cautious, though there shouldn't be a problem if you don't have the virus. Ardosons typical side effects may include nausea, stomach irriation, increased risk of bleeding, and sedation. Is there anything else I can help with? Remember to stay safe!

Can You Chew Ibuprofen?

I chewed ibuprofen and it made my mouth burn and now my stomach isnt feeling very good. Was it bad for me to chew it instead of swallow it? ## Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and these are well known to cause irritation and/or damage to the delicate lining of the mouth, stomach and esophagus. That's why they are distributed as coated tablets and the instructions usually direct you to swallow them whole and not to crush or chew them. So, yes, it was a bad idea. Even with the coating on them, NSAIDs can cause or irritate conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Are there any other questions? ## I chew it and i didn't hurt me, is it different for other people or something? my headaches go away faster... ## i can't swallow pills, so, i chewed up a...

Ibuprofen manufactured in the United States

I'm looking for liquid gel Ibuprofen 200 mg which is actually made in the USA, not not made outside the country for patients in the USA. ## Most medications are manufactured in foreign countries, now. However, there is nothing to worry about, because it has to meet the same standards as any other medication available for sale in the U.S. Ibuprofen is a NSAID that is most commonly used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. Its typical side effects may include nausea, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. At this time, it is not advisable to take it for coronavirus symptoms, as they are unsure if warnings about it possibly worsening symptoms are accurate, or not. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

melt tabs

Are there any ibuprofen tablets that melt in your mouth? My 14 son still can't swallow pills! ## An option you might consider is Junior Strength Ibuprofen - chewable grape flavor. Basically a Junior Strength is 100 mg, whereas the adult strength is 200 mg. So you would just up the dosage of children's to match what the adult dosage would be in milligrams (basically 2 to 1).

ibuprofen 600mg and ulcers

I have had ulcers (bleeding) but am fine now. Can I take Ibuprofen 600mg? I am concerned that it may cause bleeding again... Also, is ibuprofen 600mg a narcotic? ## No, it is not a narcotic. This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, and, yes, it does increase the risk of bleeding, stomach irritation, and ulceration, or worsening existing ulcers, according to FDA reports. It would be best to check with your doctor to discover what medication is safe for you take. You may need to stick with one that is milder, such as Tylenol/Acetaminophen. Is there anything else I can help with? ## You might have seen this on another post but am asking about Ibuprofen and Tylenol (no other variations) combined. My post was moved to a not as appropriate post as I was hoping it would be... Is it...

photosensitive medicines

I need a list of photosensitive medicines for display in a tanning facility. ## I have photo sensitivity to many pain relivers RX and over the counter. Can Ibuprofen be one of them? ## My ankles and lower part of my calves have a reddish type of rash. My friend said it could be photosensitvity from prescription medicines I am taking. Is this possible? Thank you. ## I'm sorry, I don't know of any comprehensive list of all of them, but there is a basic list provided by the FDA. Roberta, what types of issues do you experience? Turbo, it is possible, but it would be unusual to have it limited to just your calves, and ankles. What medications are you currently taking? Do you have an allergies that you are aware of?

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...

prestodol / Mexican antibiotic?

Prestodol -- this is a prescription drug I got in Mexico after dental work. It is made by Rayera (the logo is a capital R in a square circle). And under Prestodol it reads Clonixinato de Lisina. I am wondering if this is an antibiotic as that is what the dentist wanted me to take for the removal of a tooth. I live a long way from Mexico and can't go back to check. If you could help, I'd really appreciate it. ## According to spanish Wikipedia, Clonixinato de lisina is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which is used for pain relief [1]. Available in doses of either 125 or 250 mg. It did not say anything about it being an antibiotic. Sounds like the dentist simply gave you these to help with pain. Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back...
