Synalgos-DC Overview

Dihydrocodeine is a semi-synthetic opioid analgesic prescribed for pain or severe dyspnea, or as an antitussive, either alone or compounded with paracetamol (as in co-dydramol) or aspirin. It was developed in Germany in 1908 and first marketed in 1911.[3] Commonly available as tablets, solutions, elixirs, and other oral forms, dihydrocodeine is also available in some countries as an injectable solution for deep subcutaneous and intra-muscular administration.

We are trying to find Synalgos, which my wife has taken for over 30 years for migraine management. A few years ago it went off the market and returning 4 years later under a different manuf. We have just been notified that it will once again become unavailable (Sept 2009). Why is it that this happens? and what if any options do we have. We ahve tried numerous other meds but nothing works like synalgos, which causes her little if any side effects. ## We need to get this back on the market. It is the only medicine that works for my cluster headaches. I tried other narcotics and they make me very spacy. we need to get this back on the market. ## In reply to your comments on Synalgos DC. i have been on this drug for 30 to 35 yrs. It's the only drug that works.I am looking ieverywhere fo...

Has everyone given up on contacting Caraco Labs, the manufacturer of Synalgos-DC? We have called several times but most recently, all we can get is in answering machine. Prior to the answering machine, a woman took the calls and each time we spoke, she gave a different date as to when Caraco would be marketing this wonderful pain medication. Our pharmacist tells us that every night when he sends in his orders, Synalgos-DC is always on the list. I think he has given up, too, for he hasn't tried to call in a couple of weeks. When I checked FDA.gov, the medication is still listed. Does anyone have any recent news about what's going on with this medication? ## Our local Walgreen's says it should be off of backorder about 2/1/10. We'll see. ## Well,, my pharmacist says the co...

synalgos dc availability

Hello, I have been taking Synalgos DC for about 20 years and I also am suffering without it. I recently called Caraco Pharmaceuticals on March 29, 2010 and was told that the drug would be available to wholesalers this week and that pharmacies should be able to get it. I called my pharmacy and was told they do not see it yet. I am so frustrated. Like so many of you I can't wait to get this medication. It helps me so much. My doctor is giving me Tylenol with codeine which does nothing really for the pain. So frustrating! Keep calling because the last time I spoke to Caraco she said to me that she hopes that will have enough to go around which was this week March 29th because there is a demand for it. They acquired it from Mikart Pharmaceuticals in Atlanta, Georgia I was told by Caraco...

36 Pat Says: Report Abuse Wednesday, 1/13/2010 6:25:12 PM I got some information that may help some of you..I am having major dental surgery, and for pain, I think vicodin is useless, so I was thinking about asking for Synalgos DC, so I have done research.. There are several companies that offer dihydrocodeine than caraco..PanAmerican Pharmacuticals offers Panlor DC And Panlor SS..Purdue Pharmacuticals offers DHC Plus Capsules, Zerlor tablets are made by Zerxis Pharmacuticals..I also wrote an E Mail to Caraco asking them what the problem was, I told them where I live and when and if they were going to stock the medication. I also asked why they have in their product list if they aren't offering it..I will let you know if I hear anything back. This Caraco Pharmacutical doesn't se...

Caraco is the manufacturer, their phone number is 1-800-818-4555. My sister has been taking this since 1991. the company is currently out of stock, but I will be calling them Monday morning ## I have tried tracking this drug through drug stores, with noone having a supply, but some say that it will be back after a manufacturing delay. When they don't say. I am going crazy, as this is the only drug that ever worked. ## did you ever wonder why they are out of stock....could it be because they were shut down by the fda for issues with quality products!! just google the company name and you will see for yourself. i personally would NEVER ever buy anything from caraco. They found metal shavings in the pills when the fda did an inspection. I would hope that you are more concerned for your...
