Baclofen 20, Ketoprofen 150, Lidocaine 50 Cream

Can anyone tell me the prescription trade name for a cream containing baclofen 20 mg, ketoprofen 150(?), and lidocaine 50 mg? ## From my own investigation, pain creams that contain these types of ingredients are formulated in compound pharmacies and therefore do not have a trade name like many other topical prescriptions. These are just generic topical formulas that can vary in ingredients with anything from what's listed below, to other combinations that I have not included here: -Baclofen, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen, Cyclobenzaprine, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine, Dicyclomine -Ketoprofen, Gabapentin, Lidocaine, Amitriptyline Hope this helps! ## My compounding pharmacy calls it Baclo-Keto-Lido 2/10...

small round white pill with NO28

Found a small round white pill that has a score on one side and the other side says NO28. What is it? ## Is there any chance that the imprint says N029 as opposed to N028? I located a round white pill with N029 on one side and scored on the back (just as you described) to be identified as Baclofen 10 mg; which is prescribed as a skeletal muscle relaxant. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Northstar Rx LLC. and the size of the pill is approx. 8.00 mm. I hope this helps! ## I found the exact same pill and I can't find out what it is. If you find out please tell me. I found it in my car and am really worried about it.

baclofen for pain?

I have DDD, scoliosis, which is serious, have herniations and bulging discs in cervical spine and also in lumbar spine. I can't walk without cane. I went to doc today and she gave me a small dose of baclofen,5 mg bid. Will this help my pain? I am taking generic oxycodone 30 mg every 4-6 hours as needed. I used to take oxycontin 20 mg, up to 5 times a day, it worked very well, but I can't take this now, because my medicare will not pay for it. ## Baclofen is a muscle relaxant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. It is used to treat the pain associated with muscle strains and spasms. However, the only way to see how it will work for you is by trying it. Have you experienced any benefits, yet? ## Thanks for your r...

Suggested Percentage of Amitrip/Baclofen/Keto/Lido/Pregab in Ointment

A friend of a friend gave me some Amitrip/Baclofen/Keto/Lido/Pregab ointment to try for severe osteoarthritis hip pain and it’s been a lifesaver. The topical ointment just gives ingredients but no percentage of each. Any help with suggested percentages for the ointment mix would be appreciated.

does balcolfen really work for spasms?

I have major spasms and he gave me balcofen. Its not helping ## Hello, Berry! How are you? Baclofen is a muscle relaxant that can help with muscle spasms, but not every medication works for everyone that tries it. Have you informed your doctor? They may need to prescribe something else. The FDA lists the typical side effects of most muscle relaxants as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No...ask for flexiril or zanaflex. somas are great too but most doctor wont writr a script for them. ## Try Donatal, it really helped me.

baclofen vs soma

I have been takeing soma for muscle spasms for a while know. Another doctor wanted me to try Baclofen 20mg. I found that the Baclofen made me feel a little strange and dopey. The Soma does not. I do like to take the Baclofen at night instead of Soma as it makes me very sleepy and does help me sleep better and longer. I like the Soma for dureing the day because it does not make me sleepy and can function better. When my body feels tired I experience more pain and spasm,hence the Baclofen when need to sleep. Hope this helps ## It is normal for medications to work differently, for different people. Sometimes, when your doctor wants you to try something different, you have to give it a go, for a few weeks and then just let them know if it has bad effects or doesn't work as well for you....

is baclofen the same thing as a soma

my mom has been taking somas and her doctor changed her meds and she is skeptical of new medicene. ## no baclofen is not exactly the same as soma. they are both muscle relaxers but baclofen is a little stronger. i had been on soma and flexeril for over two years and now they have switched me to baclofen. it does work alot better for muscle spasms ## Am wanting to know at what rate baclofen treatment can be tapered off and the risk affects if stopped abruptly ## baclofen work alot better than soma it really releives the pain quicker than soma. ## IMy doctor just gave me Baclodol 5mg/300mg carisoprodol (soma). Strange thing is I can't find any info on this pill that tells me what else is in the pill, btw, they are not as good a reuglar soma. ## i get bad tightness in ny muscles within...

Baclofen and Delayed Period

I recently started taking 10 mg of Baclofen twice a day. My period was almost 3 days late and I'm usually very regular. I was just curious if delayed periods were a side effect of this pill? ## Many medications can cause menstrual irregularities, according to NIH reports, but there is also a chance that it was caused by something else, such as the issue you were taking the medication to treat, or some other issue, stress, or another medication. Are you on any other medications? ## If you normally have intense cramping before menstruation to bring it about, I'd say yes, it is possible. Refusing muscle spasms could be slowing the rate at which your uterus can expel it's lining. I'd definitely ask your doctor or ob/gyn.

Shelf life of Baclofen

My son takes Baclofen for muscle spasms. He was feeling much better and quit taking it. He recently started getting the spasms again and my question is what is the shelf life for this med. I have some left over from the last time he used it and was wondering if it is still good. Being Easter weekend there are no doctors open to get a refill. ## If it is in a pharmacy dispensed bottle, which exposes it to heat, light, moisture and etc. then the expiration date is one year from whenever it was dispensed. It doesn't get dangerous past the expiration date, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work as well as it did when it was new. Is there anything else I can help with? ## But I use to take them but I stop for a while and the bottle said discard after 2013. So I'm...
