Sorry, I can't find anything under that name in prescription databases or otherwise. If there are no imprints on the pill, then it is not a prescription drug from the US, of any kind. All prescriptions sold legally in the US must have, by law, a unique imprint for ID purposes.

And I am afraid that since I can't find that name listed anywhere, I am unable to tell you anything about this, sorry.

Without Rumoquin NF I literally could not get out of bed and walk in the morning for almost an hour. I lived in Mexico for 8 years and suffer with arthritis in all the joints of both legs and my right hand. This is not a pain killer. It is the best anti-inflamatory I have ever used. When I returned to live in the US I had enough for a few months and figured I could get something comprable here. After running out and my doctor not giving me anything except telling me to take glucosamin with condroitant and MSG or something like that which did absolutely nothing at all, I contacted a friend still in Mexico and she mailed me a few bottles. I took 2 the 1st day they arrived and by morning I was OK again. I take one a day. One of my grown sons hurt his shoulder at work, took 2 and had the same results, no pain plus his knee stopped hurting from a previous injury. There is no controlled substance in it and there was no problem bringing it across the border. It costs 99 pesos (about $10) for a 30 day supply. The ingrediants are Fenibutazona,Metocarbamol &Dexametasona. This is of course in Spanish. Not for use by pregnant women or children under 12. I can give you the name of the Lab that makes it and their address if you want. It has not even shown up on any of my lab work here which I do on regular basis for other health issues. It has not interferred with any of my other medications either. I have not suffered from any side effects.

Verwon Says:

It cannot be purchased in the US, it is not approved for use here by the FDA, so it is not available in any stores or pharmacies here.

My aunt in Mexico sent Rumoquin NF to my mother for her aches and pains, however it was first tried by my husband who has tendanitis - from construction work. He has just been on it for 6 days. First 4 days he took 2 pills a day and now he is on only 1 pill. He definately felt the pain lessen in both his arms without any side effects.
I was searching the website trying to find out as much info. on this as possible and to see where more can be purchased, but now I understand that since it hasn't been approved by our FDA that we can only purchase it in Mexico. If later it is found that we can purchase this in the US, please let me know and I will do the same. Thanks, Judy

Maria Says:

I understand concern about our FDA not having approved Rumoquin yet but let me say this. Our FDA has very lengthly processes before it approves anything and then it is not fullproof. I am 60 years old and I remember very clearly woman in the late 60's taken a birth control pill that had Thlidomide (sp?) in it. It was approved by our FDA and thousands of babies were born missing limbs that was proven to be caused by the Thalidamide ingredient. There have been other examples of this happening throughout my lifetime. All I can tell you is my doctor knows I'm taking it and knows it works. She has had many lab test done on me and there has been no evidance of any interferrance with other medications she has me on such as diabetes, high blood pressure, water retention, cholesterol medications. There has also been nothing found in my liver or kidney function. The only thing I know for sure is if I don't take it I am in terrible pain from the inflamation around the joints in my legs and hands. As I said before, there is no controlled substance. It is not a pain killer. It is an anti imflamatory. How they put the right combination together in the labs in Mexico and we can't seem to do the same here is hard for me to understand since I am used to thinking everything is done better here in the U.S. but that is obviously not always true.

Marti Says:

I am a nurse, I bought a bottle of this in Mexico. Let me tell you, it works, but you should be aware of a few things. The three ingredients are (english equivilent of the mexican words) methocarbamol (aka robaxin, brand name), phenybutazone, dexamethasone. Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant, similar to flexaril, but much less sedating. Phenybutazone is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (think naprosyn, ibuprofen), dexamethasone is a potent steroid (used not for muscle building but for anti-inflammatory purposes). The relative doses on all three are small by US comparisons, but I have found it quite effective. ***However, DO NOT USE THIS MED FOR LONG TERM!*** Dexamethasone (decadron) reduces your ability to fight infection and causes osteoporosis, also long term will suppress your endocrine system. Phenybutazone can, in rare cases, suppress your bone marrow, leaving you very vulnerable to infections. A week, even a month, would be okay, more than that, I would be very, very wary of.

Marti (Nurse) reply from 7/13/2007
Do you mean that you may only take Rumoquin one entire week or one entire month and that is it. Will you clarify the manner for best results of taking rumoquin?

Maria Says:

When I first started taking it I took 2 tables the first day. I immediately woke up without symptoms the next morning! Then I took 1 tablet daily for about 2 months. Experimenting on my own I cut it to one table every other day, then one table every 3 to 4 days. I have gone as long as 2 tablets every two weeks before I started having the pain return so that is how I take it now. I have been taking it since 2000.

I have some problems with my knees and someone told me to try Rumoquin NF which is manufactured in Mexico, where I am based. Question: What do I need to know to make sure the problem I have has something to do with rheumatoid

Maria Says:

I would think only your doctor could tell you if it's rheumatoid. Mine is not. I just have regular arthritis but it's sever in my hips and less sever in my hands and knees. If your doctor says that an anti-inflamatory would help then I would ask about this medicine. It has made all the difference in the world to my daily life.

James Says:

This is considered a dangerous drug as it contains Decadron [a steroid], Robaxin [a muscle relaxant], and Phenylbutazone, a very toxic non-steroidal drug that is not longer sold in the USA because was found to be too dangerous and can cause severe anemia and GI side effects. This is an irrational combination of medications.

Verwon Says:

Thank you for your information James.

Yes, these drugs are very dangerous. There is a reason this is not approved for use in the U.S. as he stated in his post.

I would also like to make sure that everyone knows that obtaining medications from outside the U.S. that are not approved for use here and that you do not have a prescription for is an ILLEGAL activity.

There is a lot of pills and information they don't want us to know about. God forbid them to help us all. They would'nt make any money and thats what it is all about is the MONEY. Read THE NATURAL CURES books that are out there. It makes so much sense that it makes you sick to your stomach because its all under their control to make the money.
