There is no identifation on the bottle of what the pills were only that said take 1-2 from every 4 hours for pain. whatis it?

3M has discontinued making Norgesic Forte. I am trying to find out why as I have taken this medication for years? Additionally, I am trying to find out if any generic forms of aspirin, caffeine, & orphenadrine (Norgesic Forte) exist? Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. ## I can't find information on why it was discontinued, it could have happened for many reasons, such as lack of sales or safety issues.

M on one side and 3354 on the other. Round pill half white and the other yellow. ## Hello, Maxiumus! How are you? So far, I've been unable to find anything that matches this description and with that dual coloring, I'm tending to suspect it might be something that's available over the counter.

Decolgen or Nasatap Tablet

Is it safe to drink Decolgen or Nasatap tablet for my colds while taking Myrin-P Forte? ## Hi max, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between the active ingredients in Decolgen and Myrin-P Forte. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate.

why was orphenedrine compound forte discontinued

I am trying to determine why orphenedrine compound forte was discontinued and if there is a replacement. ## You can still get Norgesic which is orphenedrine citrate, the same main ingredient as in Norgesic Forte. I took Norgesic Forte for my migraines and it worked wonderfully. When it was taken off the market, my dr switch me to regular Norgesic and had me take 2 excedrin along with it. This completes the ingredients that were in Norgesic Forte and give me the same result. ## Thank you for the information regarding orphenedrine and excedrine. What dosage orphenedrine are you using? ## Please correct me if I'm wrong, but apparently Orphenedrine is only available in dosages of 60 to 100mg; both of which can be taken every 8 hours according to the "general" dosing guidelines I...

why was it discontinued norgesic forte

I get pains down my leg usually when the weather changes from warm to cold and when it rains. I have always taken Norgesic Forte as soon as the pain starts and it always takes care of my pain. I can no longer get Norgesic Forte and the substitute my Pharmist told me to ask my Doctor for does not work. What other medications should I ask my Doctor for. I am in pain daily ## Hi Barney, Sorry to hear about your situation. I can't find any information on why norgesic was discontinued, but I think if you were to look into other Rx pain management options, there's always the usual list of narcotics to choose from; Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Percocet, Norco, Dilaudid, Opana, Fentanyl, etc...Your doctor would probably know better than anyone else, which of these medications might be most a...
