Nubain availability

Years ago Nubain could be ordered anywhere in the world and come in two days by ups. I couldn't believe it, then all shut down. So if it's not a class 4 drug why is it impossible to get? Acute pain is depressing my life changes. Now I suffer everyday. What can I do? ## Need help finding nubain for chronic pain in my knees and lower back. I've been looking, however unsuccessful. Can someone please tell me about its availability? ## What state are you in? I live in Tn. I do not have problems getting it. ## This is crazy, ten years ago Nubain could be delivered to your door. Now that it's gone they put me on morphine and it ruined me. Isn't there an honest pharmacy that dispenses Nubain without any hassle? I took it for depression and a brain/spinal injury. ## Who presc...

Drug Classification Of Nubain

Years ago Nubain used to be a popular and effective drup for pain. It was the only thin that relieved my mom's back pain or my migrain headaches. I am a nurse and haven't heard of anyone getting Nubain in years so I asked an MD recently. He couldn't give me an answer. If it's not classified as a narcotic and relieves pain, why aren't more doctors prescribing it? ## Nubain contains the active ingredient Nalbuphine, which is still considered an opioid, though you are right, it is not classified as a narcotic and doesn't fall under the controlled substances act. I am not sure why it isn't used more often, though it may be due to the fact that it was found much more effective in women and it can actually increase pain in men. This fact actually resulted in the U....

Nubain - bad effects

This past Friday, I had an allergic reaction to Nubain. Within 5 minutes of the injection I was experiencing all over body burning chills. Within the next 20 minutes, 911 was called. 4 EMT's arrived to find me on the bed having convulsions and screaming. It too 2 of them to hold me down so benedryl cound be administered. I was taken to the ER where for the next 7 hours I screamed and convulsed, the movement was totally involuntary. I could not stop shaking. The screams were caused by the pain over my body which felt like I was on fire and being frozen at the same time. I had difficulty breating, also. It is now Wednesday and I am still fighting the reaction...I still have spasms, chills, shaking, memory loss, vision loss in right eye, pain over body and extreme sweating. I contacted...

Nubain nightmare

I had a bad reaction to Nubain when recovering from surgery, back in my room on morphine IV drip. The nurse gave it to me and I think she was incompetent or worse. It wiped out the morphine and I immediately felt the impact of my surgery post-op. I was miserable for hours, they gave me emergency pain intervention to bring me back to where I was before she gave me the Nubain. It was a terrible experience. ## Wow, that's terrible, very sorry it happened to you. Did they provide you with any explanation for it?
