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...

ibuprofen and hydrocodone/acetaminophen

Hi, I got 10 teeth extracted yesterday morning. For pain I was taking hydrocodone, and it makes me so sick with an awful lot of nausea and throw up. I don't wanna take this medicine... still got pain... Can I take ibuprofen instead? Thanks. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? It will not likely provide as much pain relief, and due to the risk of bleeding it can create, you should double check with your dentist to be sure it is safe for you. The FDA lists its other side effects as possibly including headache, dizziness, and stomach irritation. Are you on any other medications? Will you be getting a partial soon? ## Just got my gallbladder out and it seems the norco 5-325 only helps for a short time; so I was wondering if I could mix ibuprofen with norco? ## Can Norco & Ibuprofen be take...

Side effects of Ibuprofen

My partner has been taking two 200mg Ibuprofen every morning for about 3 years. He has become quite lethargic, lost his appetite and is sleeping 12 hours per night. Is it the tablets? ## It is really hard to say, those aren't typical side effects for that dosage. The NIH lists them as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is he on any other medications that you know of? When was the last time he consulted a doctor? ## I was in a car accident when i was 17, i am now 57. My head went in the back of the drivers seat and broke my nose. There were 5 of us in a little Pinto and we hit the curb on our side of the road and spun went airborne and hit a tree head on. They never checked my spine after that and when i got to be abt 3...

Expired Ibuprofen

Is it safe to take ibuprofen that expired 3 years ago? What are the pros or cons? That’s all I have to ask. ## It doesn't become dangerous, but it may have lost some efficacy, according to FDA warnings, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. Overall, it usually best to dispose of expired medications, and purchase a new supply. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? Specifically, regarding your question, it might be milder than it originally was so that's a pro, but it might not work as well as you need, which could be a con. You should also take into consideration any other medications you are on, and if your doctor ...
