Codeine Overview

Codeine is an opiate used to treat pain, coughing, and diarrhea.[3][5] It is typically used to treat mild to moderate degrees of pain.[3] Greater benefit may occur when combined with paracetamol (acetaminophen) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as aspirin or ibuprofen.[3] Evidence does not support its use for acute cough suppression in children or adults.[6][7] In Europe, it is ...

Is Kratom good for pain

I have been on 10 mg oxycodone and codeine #4 for 10 years and now I'm sick of it. I was told kratom is good for pain. Does anyone know if it really works? Pain meds don't work any more and I want off of pain killers. ## I have been looking at kratom forums on the web seeking alternatives to pain pills. I'm getting mixed opinions on it being effective for pain issues. There are online vendors who feature an option of buying a few different strains which you can sample. Most forum users are seeking a way to detox from the pills using kratom to cope with withdrawal symptoms. ## I believe that Kratom is the best pain reliever on the face of the Earth. I have been a Chronic Pain patient for 20 years and have been prescribed Everything Possible for severe pain. Kratom works bette...

Doriden/glutethimide availability

Does anyone know where one could obtain glutethimide or it's brand name Doriden (CIBA Company)? Am in Canada where Doriden was discontinued in late 1980s and I was told Doriden discontinue was international. Perhaps there is now a generic form containing glutethimide available now as I would assume CIBA trademark rights would have by now expired. As the benzodiazapine replacement meds for Doriden are more addictive and dangerous (especially if mixing with alcohol & other drugs) it sure would be great to be able to go back to Doriden or glutethimide which were more effective and safer. A shame that the public was switched over to benzodiazipines (i.e. lorazapam, diazapam) when a better/safer product was available all in the name of profits and economics. Any help out there is mos...

Codine&dextramethanol

prescribed after removal of benign brain tumor, told it was highly addictive and patient must be weaned slowly-need full list of possible side effects, including rarely occuring, anything that might explain irratic or aggressive behavior ## I don't really know of that chemical combination you mention, but you can read more about Codeine to get an idea of one of the ingredients (Yes, Codeine is addictive). And then if you go down the page there is another list of other combinations of drugs which contain Codeine. Hope this helps. ## Codeine has been known to cause mood changes, depression, hallucinations, and confusion, as side effects. However, given that brain surgery was involved, there is also a possibility that it is related to the surgery itself. While we have learned a lot abo...

codeine phosphate

little white tablrt t ## Can anyone tell me if Codeine Phosphate 30 mg tablets will relieve the pain that a percocet 10/325 will? ## yes..maybe no. We all react differently, to different medications...and have differing situations ( how long taking? ) However, in light of finding this very wonderfully run website...here's my 2cents: Yes, it will, it usually works at a very much lessor effective rate because it has to be metabalized (?) by your liver...into morphine. So, 30 mgs will work compartivly with a percoset 7.5...in my body. I have been in pain management for 26 years...perfect record & results: Intractible tenent chronic pain from a left hip shattered into many pieces...twice, and broken severely twice...the final brake came with a bonus injury! I compound fractured my l...

round white pill 115 R

The white pill imprinted "115 R" is 30mg of codeine phosphate. Hope this helps. ## My friend had a pill with 115 on it and she said it stops pain in your tooth. Can you please let me know if it's for that? Thanks. ## From what I've been able to find, this is a British pill that is listed as containing 30mgs of Codeine. The NIH warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Is anyone else familiar with this tablet? ## Can anyone help identify a very small white pill with R on one side and 115 on the other? Does this pill contain Codeine?

Lertus Cd Codenia

These pills are GOOD! I just got a prescription from mexico (50mg of codeine). I only took half tho cuz 50mg of codeine is a lot to take at one time. It worked great for several hours. ## Just wanted to post the medication dosing guidelines for Codeine, in case you didn't know: "The usual adult dosage for tablets is 15 mg to 60 mg repeated up to every four hours as needed for pain. The maximum 24 hour dose is 360 mg." "Adult doses of codeine higher than 60 mg fail to give commensurate relief of pain and are associated with an appreciably increased incidence of undesirable side effects." "When the patient no longer requires therapy with codeine sulfate, doses should be tapered gradually to prevent signs and symptoms of withdrawal in the physically dependent patien...
