keto baclo cyclo flurb lido

I'm cleaning out my medicine cabinet and came across this old RX (cream). It doesn't say what it is for. Can ypu tell me what this RX is used for? ## Hi Suzanne, Based on my research, I believe the abbreviations you mentioned are supposed to correspond with the following list of medications: Ketoprofen (Keto), Baclofen (Baclo), Cyclobenzprine (Cyclo), and Lidocaine (Lido) Apparently the cream itself is meant to be used for inflammation and pain. However, I am unsure of what "Flurb" is supposed to stand for. Do you have any other clues as to what this particular ingredient may be? ## Flurbiprofen is a NSAID that has been available since 1988. It is rarely prescribed in oral form as it has been known to cause spikes or fluctuations in blood pressure and reduces the effecti...

pharmacies won't refill my ketoprofen

anyone else having this problem? I looked on the internet and can't see that it's been banned. ## Hello, Cricket! How are you? What reason are they giving you for not filling it? Ketoprofen is classified by the FDA as being a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. ## Hi. Yeah, I've had the same problem. My pharmacy says that their suppliers can't get ketoprofen. The Pharmacist can't get any answers as to why ketoprofen isn't available either. I am allergic to opiates, and other NSAIDs I've tried don't work anywhere as effectively as ketoprofen. So, this is a real problem for me. I would re...

Pain Management cream for arthritis

DermaTran compounds a cream that I use to help with my arthritis. This is the only cream that I have used and gotten relief. It costs me $60 a tube and I am 92 yrs old and live on Social Security. The VA says they can not help me and I need some help in lowering the cost. A tube lasts me about 2 months. ## Hello, John! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, DermaTran is a chain of compounding pharmacies, which means what you're getting isn't actually a specific name brand medication, so there is no assistance available for it. I wish I had better news for you, but unfortunately, I don't. The only suggestion I can make is to check with other compounding pharmacies in your area and see if they may offer a cheaper price. Does anyone else...

keto/lido/cycl cream with a heating pad

I recently got keto/lido/cycl cream that was prescribed to me because a year ago I got whiplash from a car accident and it still hasn't gone away. I was wondering whether or not I could use the cream with a heating pad as for I use the pad alot? The cream is exactly 10% ketoprofen 6G, 4% lidocaine 2.4G, and 1% cyclobenzaprine 0.6G. I would very much appreciate anyone who could answer me. Thank you! ## Hi Jessica, thank you for bearing with me as I did not have a chance to reply back to your other thread. Because there is Lidocaine in the cream I would avoid using a heating pad unless you can get an okay from your doc or the compounding pharmacist.
