Why Was It Discontinued Norgesic Forte

Barney Says:

I get pains down my leg usually when the weather changes from warm to cold and when it rains. I have always taken Norgesic Forte as soon as the pain starts and it always takes care of my pain. I can no longer get Norgesic Forte and the substitute my Pharmist told me to ask my Doctor for does not work.
What other medications should I ask my Doctor for. I am in pain daily

Hi Barney,

Sorry to hear about your situation.

I can't find any information on why norgesic was discontinued, but I think if you were to look into other Rx pain management options, there's always the usual list of narcotics to choose from; Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Percocet, Norco, Dilaudid, Opana, Fentanyl, etc...Your doctor would probably know better than anyone else, which of these medications might be most appropriate for your condition.

Outside of that realm, I would just be open to trying other more natural alternatives that can be used as a form of adjunctive therapy - to be used alongside your current regimen of medication. Powerful anti-inflammatory herbs/roots/spices like Turmeric root, White willow bark, Cayenne, Copaiba, Ginger, Garlic, Licorice, Cinnamon...and many other plant-based sources, may be beneficial for giving you that added sense of relief.

I hope this helps!

You can still get Norgesic which is orphenedrine citrate, the same main ingredient as in Norgesic Forte. I took Norgesic Forte for my migraines and it worked wonderfully. When it was taken off the market, my dr switch me to regular Norgesic and had me take 2 excedrin along with it. This completes the ingredients that were in Norgesic Forte and give me the same result.
