 Oxycodone + Naloxone

Oxycodone/naloxone is a combination analgesic drug available as modified-release tablets under the trade names Targin (produced by Mundipharma), Targiniq and Targinact. The oxycodone component is an opioid and is responsible for the pain-relieving effects. Naloxone opposes the effects of opioids but is poorly absorbed into the body when given orally, meaning almost all the dose stays within the gastrointestinal tract and reduces the local side effects from the oxycodone. Constipation was sign...

Take-Home Naloxone Kits

I'm a Journalism student from Western University writing a story about take-home Naloxone programs. Wondering if anyone here has used a Naloxone kit and what your experience was like? ## I am 35 years old and I am percribed 90 10mg oxycodone. I've been on and off of pain meds since I was 16. I was having a lot of back issues since the birth of my oldest 3 children so at that time a friend referred me to a pain clinic in the great state of FLA during the "pill mill" epidemic. My Dr. here in MD agrees with me in saying that I was totally mismanaged being perscribed in 2008 thru 2010 with 30mg oxycodone / 240 a month as well as 90 2mg of xanax.

a51 30mg have naloxone in it

Does percent 30 a 51 have naloxone in them ## Hello, Lydia! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing only 30mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have tried the ir's but the last time they were the a 51s and I noticed they didn't work as well for me ...

Naloxone/narcan experiences

Recently I was given narcan in the emergency room after being nonresponsive for an hour and vomitting while I was unconcious. I had taken 120 mgs of ms contin and 2 mgs of ativan, but in this case it wasn't the pills I had swine flu. That was the reason I couldn't get enough air and couldn't stay awake. Anyway they gave me the narcan and almost immediately I started shouting and swearing and having extreme chills and heat flashes at the same time and extreme paranoia. I also couldn't stop coughing and was breathing very rapidly. I was just wondering if that was withdrawal symptoms from the dose of narcan or if I just had a weird reaction. Thanks for your help. ## Sounds weird or you are alergic! I say alergic cause my wife had the same kinda thing happen to her. ## The r... ...

Updated in Naloxone

My pharmacist notified me that the above med is no longer made. Can I get it by any other name or how can I contact the manufacturer to see if it will be made again? After trying many meds over 10 years it is the only one that works for my wife. Please help. thank you ## My pharmacist told me the same thing here in Michigan about 5 days ago....I called 17 local pharmacies and found (1) that had 150 tablets left and I was able to get them. I was told a couple different things: 1. The drug company was going through a major re-organization and there was a backorder, and 2. The drug is on indefinite hiatus. Either way, it will be very bad for me as well. I'm very intolerant to MANY pain relievers and this medication has worked for me for over 10 years with NO side effects. I was wonderi... ...

can u take naloxone with methadone

I am on methadone and I've got an abscess in my mouth. It's killing me. Can I take targin naxolone or will it interfere with my methadone? ## Targin Naloxone will not do anything to help with an abscess, it is used to prevent opiate abuse.

Suboxone or Naloxone causing hives?

Could my chronic idiopathic hives (of 5yrs) be caused by 2mg Suboxone? I've been on sub for that long. And if so, is it the bup or naloxone?

Buprenorphine + Naloxone / Suboxone 8mg-2mg

I took this medicine to get off of Hydrocodone. I don't even take a quarter of a whole one a day. I usually take a sliver about a quarter of an inch or less a day and that's all.

Zubsolv, Suboxone, Buprenorphine / Naloxone

I have been on Zubsolv, Suboxone, of all doses, for years now. I have reached the point to where my Zubsolv will take literally hours to dissolve and once it finally does dissolve to some extent..enough for me to swallow at least, I have no way of getting it to completely dissolve. So I have to eat with the medicine still very much still in my mouth and throat. Despite using extra water, to try and help the process along, etc. This takes up a great deal of my mornings. Plus I have crohns disease and have much difficulty swallowing in the first place. So I'm simply unable to get anything down. All the way or even more than just past my throat. I have diarrhea as well with this medication and have had many bowel blockages that I have no doubt are due in part to the way the swallowed Z... ...
