doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island
234 Replies RSS
I am looking for an MD or Pain clinic that will prescribe pain medication in Rhode Island. I have 4 herniated discs, nerve damage in my leg, severe migraines. My former Md said that he could not longer prescribe due to the regulations, I dont want to have to move, that would be crazy to have to go through that, but I also do not want to continue living night and day in Agony, with not one Md that has any compassion, it seems all they care about is to look out for themselves, I only take 2 pain medications that I believe are both in class 1, but when you talk to a doctor about pain, they tell you to take tylenol. I am tired of theses doctors just caring about themselves, if you have a patient like myself, that has the MRI's and Catscans to show what my pain level is, they should be a...

Winadeine-F 325/8mg vs Tylenol #4 for pain relief
1 Reply RSS
I currently take tylenol #4 for chronic back pain. Will taking Winadeine F 325/8mg provide the same level of pain relief? ## Both of these medications contain Acetaminophen with Codeine, but Winadeine-F is not available in the U.S. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have a white oblong/football shaped pill that has a big V and 22 65. Is that a generic drug for tylenol 3s? ## No, this tablet is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 10mgs of Baclofen, which is a muscle relaxant that is used to treat the pain caused by muscle strains, sprains, and spasms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

half red half yellow ## How many milligrams of Tylenol and how many milligrams of codeine are in Tylenol 6 ## From what I can find, there is no 600mg tablet on the U.S. market. The maximum available here are the 500mgs tablets. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Acetaminophen as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and headache. Cam, I cannot find a Tylenol 6 listed in the U.S. databases. Where was it prescribed? I will keep searching for you, though, it is possible I have missed a listing.

K8 green oxycodone pill with tylenol
1 Reply RSS
Can I take a Tylenol 500mg with this (k8) oxycodone pill? I've been told I can but don't want to if it's gonna harm me. ## Yes, you can, if your doctor approves, it does augment that action of the Oxycodone in some people that take it. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. There is actually a combination medication available, the name brand for it is Percocet, though a generic is also on the market, it contains Acetaminophen/Tylenol, with Oxycodone. Are you on any other medications?
