Big Pharma's Lockdown On Legitimate Chronic Pain Patients

Is narcotic pain medicine becoming a thing of the past? Why are doctors across America phasing out the practice of prescribing effective pain medication? Will big pharmaceutical companies ever truly understand what it's like to face the other side of the coin? Lately there's been a musty scent in the air surrounding the use of prescribed narcotic pain medication. Many doctors appear to be running scared as the DEA scours through fields of medical records, inspecting prescribing pads like a mouse scavenges for food in a dimly lit cellar. Should the day come when doctors recommend Ibuprofen to a feeble man who's been involved in a terrible car accident (breaking several bones / requiring extensive surgery), is this doctor at risk of malpractice when there are more effective op...

prestodol / Mexican antibiotic?

Prestodol -- this is a prescription drug I got in Mexico after dental work. It is made by Rayera (the logo is a capital R in a square circle). And under Prestodol it reads Clonixinato de Lisina. I am wondering if this is an antibiotic as that is what the dentist wanted me to take for the removal of a tooth. I live a long way from Mexico and can't go back to check. If you could help, I'd really appreciate it. ## According to spanish Wikipedia, Clonixinato de lisina is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which is used for pain relief [1]. Available in doses of either 125 or 250 mg. It did not say anything about it being an antibiotic. Sounds like the dentist simply gave you these to help with pain. Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back...

Bioflu and Alaxan (Ibuprofen + Paracetamol)

My friend took Bioflu and Alaxan (Ibuprofen + Paracetamol) at the same time. The result was severe allergies on her whole body and face... Also caused dizziness, headache and loss of taste. What can she do about it and how many days will it take for the allergies to be gone? Please give us some advice. ## Bioflu contains Chlorpheniramine and Paracetamol, and Alaxan contains Ibuprofen and Paracetamol, so they should not be taken together, it can be very dangerous if someone takes too much Paracetamol, the NIH guidelines warns that no one should exceed 1,000mgs of it in any 8 hour period, and no more than 3,000mgs in any 24 hour period. As to the reaction, yes, it sounds like she is allergic to some ingredient in one of them, but she should have it checked out by a doctor to be safe. It i...

ardosons vs. Ibuprofen 800 mgs for knee n hip pain

I've been taking Ibuprofen 800 mgs per day for hip and knee pain. However I was recommended Ardosons for same problem and the pain relief is dramatic in just 2 days, taking 1 dose only. My concern is the interaction it may have with the blood pressure medication I am currently taking, Hydrochlorothiazid 25 mg. I know ibuprofen can also raise blood pressure. ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Ardosons is listed as containing the active ingredient Betamethasone, which is a steroid class medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, acne, weight gain, nervousness and insomnia. It can also raise blood pressure and heart rate, so it shouldn't be taken, without your physicians approval. Another issue is that it may cause fluid retention, which ...
