Codeine Overview

Codeine is an opiate and prodrug of morphine used to treat pain, coughing, and diarrhea. It is found naturally in the sap of the opium poppy, Papaver somniferum.[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...

doriden

I used to take Doriden for bouts of insomnia but I heard it was discontinued. However, I asked my pharmacy about this and they said they would order it for me. Can it be ordered? ## Hello, Alicia! How are you? Yes, it can be ordered, it wasn't discontinued, just basically replaced by medications that have been deemed safer, so it is rarely prescribed today. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No thank you. ## Hello. I had been prescribed Doriden (generic -glutethimide) for a number of years but was forced to switch to a benzodiazapine as I was told the manufacturer Ciba had conducted a worldwide product discontinuation due to poor sales. I did however read your post reply confirming a pharmacy could order this medication upon request? Was curious if you had any additional inf...

what does M mean on a pill

White Round Pill With A Number 3 On One Side And M on the other side ## Acetetophomin 300 mg + codeine 30 mg. ## what does a round white pill with an M on one side and 30 on the other side mean? ## Hello, The m on the pill is an imprint which is an identifier and I would love to help you so I just need to know one detail. There are two different pills that I found with an M and a 3, but one of them has a square around the M and the other one has just an M and no box. These pills are completely different so I just need to know which one you have so I can provide you with some additional information. ## The M is probably the manufacturer, like Mallinkroft. (Sp?) ## The one that I found has a box around the M

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!

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

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...
