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...

reddish brown pill 51 imprint

This pill is oval and only has a 51 imprint on it. It is white in the inside and has no other numbers but 51 no other imprint or anything. ## This may be a long shot, but there's a 200mg Ibuprofen tablet that's brownish-red and oblong with l2 on one side and blank on the other. If you hold it upside down it could appear similar to 5l, depending on the condition of the tablet? For verification, the National Drug Code is 49035-517 and it appears to be a product of Walmart. Perhaps you can contact your local pharmacy and/or poison control to see if this sounds like a possible match. Whereabouts did you get it from? ## How would a 5 look like a 2, even upside down? Seriously.... Type a "2", then turn your phone upside down and look at it. Does it look like a 5? ## David is c...

Doctors pain medications

No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to you people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people like you all the time who go from practice to practice with your stories trying to get narcotics. You need to go to drug rehab, find a psychiatrist, do physical therapy, lose weight, and get a job!! This is no way to live and we do not want to jeopardize our licenses feeding into your addiction. I have personally been in three serious car accidents (none were my fault) and have had back surgeries, injections, PT etc. but have NEVER taken controlled substances except for two days after surgery. I have chronic back pain but I exercise and take care of myself and go on with my life!! Evidence-based practice tells us that narcotics are no better and pain con...

white round pill i 135

White round pill, top half says I, bottom says 135..... The back is blank. What is it? ## Hello, Chase! How are you? I'm sorry, but I don't see a listing in the NIH databases for a round tablet with this marking. Could you please double check and post back? I do see one for a tablet with a marking of IP 135 that is round, and white, which is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals, they list it as containing 200mgs of Ibuprofen, which is used to treat pain, fever, and headache. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. ## Allopurinol. Hopefully, because it was just given to my daughter by Walgreens, however, the pill she got from CVS last month looked larger. We've been looking...

Ibuprofen Melfen Can I Take It For A Tooth Pain

hi im dieing will pain nd all i have is melfen 400mg film coated tablets ibuprofen for my tooth ach is this any harm tanks ## Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it's often used for dental pain, but I am not sure how much it will help, though it may take the edge off. Learn more Ibuprofen details here. The main problem with a tooth ache is that it is going to keep lingering and returning, unless you see a dentist and get the underlying problem taken care of, such as getting a cavity filled or having a root canal done, having the tooth extracted or whatever is required.

Additionally, check with your regul...
