Palexia SR 50 mg

I was prescribed Palexia 50mg for a chronic neck problem. I had amazing results after all else failed. However, the Dr then gave me the SR meds when he renewed the script and I have unpleasant side effects, which I did not have on the original meds. (Not SR) They were prescribed as 1 a day. Do I have to take them every day like chronic meds or can I take them like pain tablets... when I need them? ## Hi Les - does it say anywhere on your prescription leaflet whether you are supposed to take your medication every day as a form of pain prevention, or whether you should simply take a dose as needed for pain? I've seen immediate release pills for breakthrough pain. Long acting (sustained release) pain meds are intended for around the clock pain relief. Are you familiar with the phrase ...

What Is Om 75 Orange Pill Compared To

What is the Om 75 Orange pill compared to cause even though i know that it is a narcotic i want to know what it is like or equal to that i am already familiar with ## This tablet contains 75mgs of Tapentadol, the name brand for it is Nucynta and while it is similar to a narcotic, it actually doesn't act like straight narcotics do. Therefore, if you are familiar with Tramadol, which is a very similar type of medication, it would be closely compared to that, but it is known to be a little more potent. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I found a small oval.orange pill w 75 on one side in my sons stuff, what is it please

Tapentadol Dose Compared To Suboxone

I am coming off of 4 years of suboxone and have not been sucessful in stopping...so im hearing it is easier to withdraw from pain pills...experienced that myself years back..i would like to know the comparable dose of 2mg suboxone to a 100mg Tapentadol...thanks ## Hi Michele, Just to clarify, are you hoping to use the Tapentadol to help with withdrawal from Suboxone? Or are you wanting to switch medications? Either way, this could have negative effects since using Suboxone (buprenorphine) together with tapentadol may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. I wouldn't recommend starting the Tapentadol with the Suboxone still in your system. In regards to detoxing from the Suboxone, usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking th...
