A doctor's opinion on pain medication seeking

No one wants to prescribe controlled substances to people on an ongoing basis because it is wrong!! I am a provider and see people all the time who go from practice to practice with stories trying to get narcotics. Patients 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 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 control than ibuprofe...

Can You Chew Ibuprofen?

I chewed ibuprofen and it made my mouth burn and now my stomach isnt feeling very good. Was it bad for me to chew it instead of swallow it? ## Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and these are well known to cause irritation and/or damage to the delicate lining of the mouth, stomach and esophagus. That's why they are distributed as coated tablets and the instructions usually direct you to swallow them whole and not to crush or chew them. So, yes, it was a bad idea. Even with the coating on them, NSAIDs can cause or irritate conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Are there any other questions? ## I chew it and i didn't hurt me, is it different for other people or something? my headaches go away faster... ## i can't swallow pills, so, i chewed up a...

Does Ardosons contain Ibuprofen?

I want to know because they say not to take ibuprofen with the covid-19 being here in the US. ## No, Ardosons is listed as containing Indomethacin, and Methocarbamol, but the Indomethacin is an NSAID, so it is in the same drug class as the Ibuprofen. Given the lack of information, I'd say its best to be cautious, though there shouldn't be a problem if you don't have the virus. Ardosons typical side effects may include nausea, stomach irriation, increased risk of bleeding, and sedation. Is there anything else I can help with? Remember to stay safe!

Ibuprofen manufactured in the United States

I'm looking for liquid gel Ibuprofen 200 mg which is actually made in the USA, not not made outside the country for patients in the USA. ## Most medications are manufactured in foreign countries, now. However, there is nothing to worry about, because it has to meet the same standards as any other medication available for sale in the U.S. Ibuprofen is a NSAID that is most commonly used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. Its typical side effects may include nausea, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. At this time, it is not advisable to take it for coronavirus symptoms, as they are unsure if warnings about it possibly worsening symptoms are accurate, or not. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...
