  i would take a 30 mg tab & cut it in half. Take that. That should be plenty enough to get him high if he dont have a tolerance level. Do not take both 30 mg tablets together he could get really sick. Do not crush them & snort them either. If u have any questions message me thanks.

  Oxycodone hydrochloride - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with aspirin

Oxycodone Acetaminophen - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with Acetaminophen
Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the threshold to sensing pain. It reduces fever through its action on the heat-regulating center of the brain. The combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen or hydrocodone acetaminophen achieves greater pain relief than either taken separately

What is the difference between oxycodone and oxycodone hydrochloride?
And also could you tell me if hydrocodone is the same as a percocet or what?

  The difference between the two is basically in the chemical structure. For all intents and purposes, they are the same. Another version is Oxycodone terephthalate.

As for hydrocodone, it is NOT the same as percocet. Percocet is a compound of oxycodone and acetaminophen. Dosages can vary; the standard is 5mg oxycodone and 500mg acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is found in Vicodin and Lortab, and many other generic versions. It is a weaker painkiller than oxycodone, and the chemical synthesis process is different.

I see you are asking questions about opiods, just curious, why?

Is oxycodone bad for your liver w/out the acetaminophen?
I have oxycodone hydrochloride (oxycontin) and there isn't any acetaminophen in it so is it bad for your liver still since I know acetaminophen is, but not sure about the oxycodone alone.

  Oxycodone is not bad for your liver at all, in fact, you always want to make sure you get pure oxycodone instead of an oxycodone / acetaminophen pill. The vast majority of people finally know that acetaminophen damages the liver badly, but they don't know that pills with acetaminophen will also cause damage to the body if they're taken on an empty stomach. You should always eat a cookie or 2, or something of that size, before taking acetaminophen and other types of pills. However, oxycodone can be safely ingested on an empty stomach.

Also, just for further information: oxycontin is not exactly the same as oxycodone. Oxycontin is extended-release oxycodone. Compared with oxycodone, oxycontin is formulated differently and it always has some type of coating that is required to ensure the oxycodone is released over an extended period of time.

How long do the effects of an oxycodone hydrochloride 15 last?

  Hi Sarah,

Unfortunately it's almost impossible to answer your question, because this is going to vary from person to person. The duration of effect will depend on whether the drug is rapid or controlled release for starters, but also on how severe your pain is, your body size and rate of metabolism, your tolerance to oxycodone, whether you've eaten/drunk. And so on. At a guess though, just based on my own experience, I would say between two to five hours for a rapid release, and seven to twelve hours for a controlled release.

Sorry that I can't give you a more precise answer.

  Many different companies manufacture oxycodone under their own names.
Oxycontin, for example, is manufactured solely by Purdue Pharma.

The Oxycodone pill with the "M" stamp (M30, for example) is manufactured by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Hence, the "M".

Another example would be Oxycodone stamped with A215, which is manufactured by Actavis US... Hence, the "A".

  No. it is not an opioid (aka Oxycodone or hydrocodone etc). It is an anticholinergic that blocks muscarinic receptors. It is used to treat people with irritable bowl syndrome (IBS). If you take too much it may have a delirious effect, but not that of opiates.

  In a 24-hour urine, 33-61% of a single, 5mg oral dose is excreted with the primary constituents being unchanged drug (13-19%), conjugated drug (7-29%) and conjugated oxymorphone (13-14%)1. The window of detection for oxycodone in urine is expected to be similar to that of other opioids such as morphine.

The OXYCODONE One Step Oxycodone Test Device yields a positive result when the oxycodone level in urine exceeds 100 ng/mL.

What is the difference between oxycontin and oxycodone?
My mom is going thru cancer and has been on percocet (oxycodone + acetaminophen) for a year and recently her oncologist put her on oxycontin every 12 hours and percocet for breakthrough pain as needed. Is oxycontin just a long term or delayed release form of oxycodone or something different entirely? We just want to understand what she's on.

  Percocet is a mixture of oxycodone and APAP (acetaminophen) like you said. Oxycotin is pure oxycodone with a time release effect. Oxycotin comes in much higher doses of oxycodone than percocet.

Is it safe to mix oxycodone and aspirin?
First of all I would like to say that there isn't any need for negative comments, I have a prescription for the oxycodone. I have a lot of back problems and this morning it was just killing me and I had forgotten my prescription so I took an aspirin. I'm very uneasy about mixing anything. It was around 12 or so in the afternoon when I took just one aspirin and it is now nearly 9pm so I was wondering, would it be safe to take the oxycodone now or should I wait for a longer period of time?

  It should be fairly safe to do so. Aspirin isn't prescription where all the big problems come in, that you have two different things working on the same problem and you can get too much of them in your system. If you are interested in pain free living I have the techniques to pass along to you that can bring you out of that pain world. It did me after 40 years of it. If interested, let me know and they will be yours.

  Emme, why not just have the doctor prescribe Percodan rather than Percocet? Percodna such as Watson 3551 has the opiaoid combined with the aspirin already.

Oxycodone and itching?
I have taken oxycodone for about 5 years for breakthrough severe Restless Legs Syndrome in both my legs and arms. While the dose is moderate (usually less that 20mg of an evening) for treatment of RLS and it has never been an abuse issue for me, suddenly, I have developed head to toe itching. I use straight oxycodone without any aspirin or acetomenaphen, There is no rash, but I itch in some pretty personal areas. Benadryl will exacerbate the RLS. Any suggestions as to what and when to take it
It is straight Oxycodone not Oxycontin. I got 5mg tabs so I could easily take only what I need to control the symptoms. Oxycontin did not work that well and make me dopey. I am surprise about the fuss with Oxycodone. I have never gotten any high from it - just might get a bit sleepy. I avoid the benzodiazopine as they make me dopey and may exacerbate the RLS. Had it since I was a kid. I am a 56 year old retired RN (ER and Infection Control) and it is getting worse every year.

  Oxycontin comes in 20 mg., I'm not sure about Oxycodone, thought it was categorized as 325 mg. Acetaminophen with 5 mg. Oxy, or just 5 mg. Oh well, keep up the Benadryl. Also, I don't understand your itching, I have only seen it after Epidurals and Morphine. I don't think you need any Oxy drug at all. You should take the Beta Blocker Propranolol 20 mg. for the restless leg syndrome. Valium or Diazepam works too, and doctors may not know that, I do.

Fentanyl (Duragesic) 100mcg patch is = how many mg of oxycodone?
I tried to use the narcotic converter but got messed up results. I was recently prescribed Fentanyl 100 mcg duagesic patches from my doctor for cancer. He had me on 15 mg of oxycodone 6 times a day. I told a friend recently about this patch he prescribed me and my friend said woah wtf? Thats a huge jump from what you were taking and the strongest drug in the world.

So my question is:

One is this the strongest drug in the world and as dangerous as everyone says even when taken as prescribed and with 2 yrs opiate resistance.

And my other question is, roughly if you compared this drug to the oxycodone i was taking. how many mg of oxycodone is this thing equivalent to, per hour? I haven't taken it yet I wanted to do my Homework first.

  First of all, Fentanyl is NOT the strongest pain killer in the world. Not by a long shot. While it is very powerful, your not in any serious danger as long as you take it as prescribed. The fentanyl patch delivers 100 MICROgrams every hour. The LD50 (lethal dose of 50% of experimental subjects) in rats is about 3 MILLIgrams per kilogram from sources in my medical books. The patches deliver the drug very slowly. 100 mcg of Fentanyl is approximately equivalent to about 8-10 mg of Morphine which is equivalent to about which is equivalent to somewhere between 4-8 mg Oxycodone an hour. The only real worry is post-use withdrawal. Fentanyl is EXTREMELY commonly used in cancer pain treatment and many times is prescribed with an oral opioid such as oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Don't fear using the fentanyl patch, it's very effective and when used as prescribed it is very safe. Just be careful to fold the sticky sides together when you are done with your patch as there is still active drug in the patch even after 24 hours of use. I wish you the best in your battle with cancer.

Oxycodone script refill?
I just got back from a major surgery on my arm a couple of weeks ago and was prescribed Oxycodone, they normally said they wouldn't put me on any kind of painkillers but I can't use any kind of aspirin or Ibuprofen because of the antiplatellet effect and I could bleed a lot easier.

Well now that is over and my counts are back to normal and I only had one refill for the oxycodone. The thing is neither aspirin nor the ibuprofen helps the pain that I still have. What are the chances I could get them to allow me to get another oxy script?

I really am tired of feeling like shit..

thanks

  If the surgeon/physician has "released" you from his/her care, he/she will not refill your prescription. Or at least should not, according to federal law. Doing so will risk his/her license. If you had a followup visit and the doctor didn't schedule another one, you have probably been released.

You don't mention what type of major surgery you had on your arm, or what the surgery was for. Sometimes arm surgery can result in loss of range of motion, stiffness, and pain. And sometimes a Physical Therapist can help you with an exercise program to strengthen the arm, increase the range of motion, and even decrease the discomfort of shortened ligaments and tendons.

You should contact your physician's office to find out if you've been released. If not, you may appropriately ask for another prescription, perhaps in the smallest amount (i.e., 2.5 mg). You may also want to ask about a referral to Physical Therapy.

If you've been released, you may want to ask for another appointment and tell them you're having a lot of discomfort. Not every major surgery goes perfectly well, and there may be complications with yours. Ask the doctor how long you should expect to have this discomfort.

Many people have major surgery and end up dependent on oxycodone. My own brother was one of them. As another poster suggested, be careful with this situation!

  5 mg of oxycodone is not enough for you to feel it. The best method would be to crush the pill and either put it in a gel cap or parachute it (put crushed powder in a small bit of tissue paper and swallow with water) and I didnt really see addiction I was doing over 250mg of oxy a week for 2 months and have been off that for a LONG time with no withdraw effects.

Is it bad to take Dimetapp while on oxycodone?
I was given oxycodone about 3 hours ago for post-operative pain and I've also got a bad cough. Would it be a terribly bad idea to take Dimetapp now? I'm also going to be taking Tramadol later tonight, will it react badly with that?

  do NOT take tramadol with any other opiate or opioid. tramadol itself is a heavy duty opioid, and oxycodone is an opiate. both will depress the cardiac system, and tramadol alone is enough to slow breathing to the point you shouldnt take any other downers. I code blue'd in the hospital on a dose of morphine they gave me that wad too heavy. add on tramadol and i probably would have been dead. as far as oxycodone and dimetapp, if you follow dosing guidelines it should be ok. the thing about opiates like oxycodone is that people in a lot of pain can take doses that would kill a healthy person. if the doctor prescribed you the tramadol and knew you were on oxycodone i suppose it would be ok, if following dosing instructions, but with my personal experience with opiates and opioids, in the hospital and out, legitimate or not, i personally would not take tramadol with oxycodone. opioids and opiates often clash in the body, so just exercise caution. all i can do is attempt to instill knowledge that will help you better judge whether or not to do it. and good luck whatever your choice =)

  oxycodone has no acetaminophen in it like percocet, it is just the narcotic. percocet is the brand name for a pill that contains oxycodone and it does have acetaminophen. an example would be 5/500 the five being the mg's of oxy and the 500 being the amount of acetaminophen. there is oxycontin which is just oxycodone. the contin part of the word just means continuous release and does not contain any other medication. many medications for pain have part narcotic and part acetaminophen like fioricet which is part butalbital and part aceta. fioricet is the brand name for butalbital. percocet has many siblings the exact same medication by a differant name because it is made by a different pharmaceutical company. try webmd.com they have all the info you need. gd lk

  You will be fine,, you may get sleeping and feel a little off balance but you are on a very low dosage,,, 2 mg of oxycodone is not much at all,,,, worry more about the tylenol,, don't exceed 4,000mg a day.
Even if what you meant was 5mg the total of 20mg is what I take 4 times a dday and have for years,,, you really need to stop messing around,,, some people end up having a bad reaction to even a little bit too much,,,,

the way you are trying to self-medicate really is not a smart thing to do at all.

It's how every addict and abuser I have ever known started,, no one ever thinks it will happen to them,,, well it does,,, I started messing with opiates and ended up a heroin addict,, it sure wasn't what I planned,,, I had an spine injury, was in pain and self medicated like you seem to be,,, it's not smart at all

Really the smart thing to do is to NOT listen or care about what I take or what anyone else writes here,, you can't compare medication,,, everyone is different,,,,, some people can take 120mg of methadone at one time and other people 40mg kills them,,, TAKE THEM AS DIRECTED,, it's pretty simple

PS: I hope a doctor did not tell you that the oxycodone would numb the pain,,,,, it's meant to help control the pain to a manageable level not make it go away completely

PS: look at the link from Ginny,, it's a good one

PS PS: You can't compare MS Cotin to oxycodone,, MS Cotin is morphine sulphate,, they are not the same thing at all and as far as I know the are a 12 hour release

  This is not a useful method for pain control. This is an addict's method. If you are taking 12x325 or 8x500 or whatever adding up to 4000mg a day over time, max safe dose, liver damage is unlikely in the absence of alcohol. If you need more than that or are on for years, your doc can prescribe pure opioid.

Does the Acetaminophen in percocet reduce the effect of the ocycodone or increase it?
My doctor gave me 7.5/500 oxycodone/acetaminophen.

How is this compared to the 7.5/325?

I'm guessing the increased milligrams of tylenol subdue the "drunken" feeling of the Oxycodone, because I can't really notice any difference?

Or, am I wrong?

  Acetaminophen theoretically increases the amount of analgesia (pain relief) obtained from opioids (like oxycodone) but if there is an increase, its marginal.

They also put acetaminophen and other drugs in with opioid medications to deter abuse- too much acetaminophen will make you sick and kill your liver (FDA allows 4 grams or 8 500mg pills or 12 325mg pills in a 24 hour period).

The acetaminophen should not have any effect on the sedation or intoxication from oxycodone so 7.5mg w/, w/o or w/ more acetaminophen should all feel the same.

Is 205 mgs/day of Oxycodone too much for a male who does not have cancer nor ever had surgery-only joint pain?
Combined with Valium, Elavil, Neurontin, high blood pressure medicine (Tarka), Colace & previously taken anti-depressants such as Cymbalta and Wellbutrin--- wouldn't 205 mgs. of Oxycodone be considered "too much" for a 45 yr. old male who is only experiencing shoulder & knee joint pain? No cancer or surgery, just pain from joints (scheduled for, but not had joint replacement surgery). Wouldn't this amount of Oxycodone per day cause a fatal overdose?

  It is true that Percocet typically contains anywhere between 325 and 750mg of Aspirin in it, but nothing that exceeds 10mg of oxycodone in it will EVER have Aspirin or Acetaminophen (APAP) in it.

Oxycontin (which ranges from 10mg to 160mg of oxy.)actually does not contain any Tylenol or Acetaminophen. Oxycontin stands for oxycodone continuous release, which is a time release that only contain bindings (for time release) and dyes (for the coating around it) and releases oxycodone gradually over a 12 hour period.

As far as 30mg. oxycodone, that is an the highest immediate release form of oxycodone available and contains pure oxycodone with no bindings and definitely no Tylenol or Aspirin.

I'm sure you know that oxycodone containing pills are the most addicting pills on the market and if not used properly and/or are mixed with the wrong meds (respiratory depressors mostly) you can literally stop breathing. In FL oxycodone claims an average of 7 lives a day via overdoing, so be careful and best of luck to you.

OxyCodone vs OxyContin?
I've been prescribed OxyCodone with APAP for a back injury. A friend of mine offered me an oxycontin. He said it was the same thing just without the aspirin/acetaminophen added in. I'm looking at this from a legal standpoint. If I were to be drug tested would it show up differently or as the same thing? And please no "you shouldn't mess with such and such", I just want an answer to my question. Thanks for any help.

  Oxycodone is the name of the narcotic in Oxycontin.

Oxycontin contains oxycodone, but is 'continuous release', hence it's name.

Basically, the reason you never hear of anyone getting hooked on oxycodone is because it is quite difficult to obtain in a pure form, due to the increased potential for abuse. Generally, a NSAID such as paracetamol or aspirin is added, so an overdose would also cause severe pain due to liver damage. Examples include percocet (oxycodone and paracetamol) and percodan (oxycodone and aspirin).

Also, oxycodone is generally sold under some sort of trade name, so you wouldn't hear the word "oxycodone" used to refer to an addiction, just as someone with a Vicodan problem wouldn't say they had a "hydrocodone" addiction.

Does anyone have advice about migraines?
I've only just begun having migraine headaches, I started getting them when I was 16. At first they were pretty few and far between, but by the time I started my senior year of high school I was getting 3 or 4 a week. I've been seeing a neurologist since, he's the top in his field, I have no known external triggers, (i.e. food, sunlight, smells etc) and so far nothing has worked for the pain. (I've been on Imitrex, zomig, axert, darvocet, vicodin, midrin, demerol, dilaudid, talwin, hydrocodone/Norco, fioricette with codeine and oxycodone hydrochloride to date.) I'm on a prophylactic (Norvasc) but lately I've been having many a week again. Does anyone know what I should do next??

Last night, over the course of about 4 hours, I swallowed about 30 pills of oxycodone/acetaminophen 5-325M. I slept fine and feel fine today. What should I be concerned about? This was not a suicide attempt.

  Go to the ER... NOW... please go soon... Liver damage, kidney damage, lasting affects on your body that could be fatal.

You don't need to take ANY more Oxy for a while.

What would happen if i take Remeron and Oxycodone at the same time?
I am prescribed Remeron for depression. and i recently got into a car accident and was prescribed Oxycodone 10mg for lower and upper back pain.

1) I am not sure if my doctor realized that i was prescribed Remeron.

so i was wondering what negative things could happen before i take either.

  the two drugs are safe together, the reason oxycodone is prescribed so often is because it is safe unless you take 250mg's+ but that's obvious.

if you are concerned, call or email the pharmacy and double check that you got the right med, but if the package has good labeling then you should be ok

What pain med should I take?
I take oxycodone/apap 5/325, 1 every 4 hours for back pain. they work pretty good, and of course I like the feeling I get. I am out of meds till friday, and i am in alot of pain today. I asked a couple friends that "USE" pain meds and they all had different kinds. So now I don't know what to take. They are all high doses so I am going to cut them into smaller doses. i want something as close to what I take now, because I can still function when I take my pain meds, and I HAVE to be able to function, a little high feeling is ok, but not knocked out. Please help and tell me what order you think is best. I take them orally NOT IV, NOT SNORTING the pills are...
1. morphine sulfate SR 60mg
2.methadone hydrochloride 10mg
3.opana ER Oxymorphone HCl ER 40 mg
Thanks!

what are lincomycin hydrochloride and lidocaine hydrochloride gel use for?
miao
02/14/06
Reply
  Lincomycin hydrochloride is mainly used for fighting respiratory tract and soft tissue infections.

there's another type: It is indicated for the infections due to Staphylococcus,Streptococcus Pneumococcus and anaerobes. It may cause enteritis of pseudo-menbrane after prolonged administration. Patients with hepatic insufficiency should use prudently.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is used as a pain reliever. Lidocaine (lignocaine) belongs to a group of medicines known as local anaesthetics. Lidocaine acts to block temporarily the pathway of pain impulses along nerve fibres. This relieves or prevents pain in the area where it has been injected. This preparation is injected to provide local anaesthesia for minor procedures, such as dental surgery.


you can check out these websites. it's good. good luck!

  What you are seeing on the web is talking about exposure to vapors of hydrochloric acid, not about taking pills with a meal. Sort of like saying you can't drink from the municipal water supply because it is treated with chlorine when we know that chlorine gas is poison, especially to babies.

However, if you are still concerned, there are alternatives. You can take digestive bitters (Chamomile, Chickory, Gentian or a product called Swedish Bitters) at the start of a meal to increase your production of HCL. Also very helpful to sip vinegar water with meals. Mix 2-3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar and equal amount of honey in a little hot water. After it's dissolved, add cool water until it tastes pleasant.

  If you live in the United States then the FDA should ensure that any product advertised as containing 25mg dephenhydramine HCL will be the same as benadryl (the pink ones). If you take the green ones it'll have additional ingredients as well.

How much Aspirin do I need to take to get the same effect of Oxycodone?
A low dose pill containing Oxycodone every night was the only thing that got me to sleep. Now I am forced to pick things over-the-counter because my doctor won't give more and I am suffering (not addicted). I got a big bottle of Aspirin... I hope that it is better than Acetaminophen & Ibruprofen. What is your take? What is the most effective out of the 3? So how many should I take, or maybe I should take one of each? Somebody who knows this stuff help me...
what part of "that was the only thing that got me to sleep" didn't you understand? I don't appreciate responses from people who don't read my post. Just make me suffer more.
it is not nessessarily pain the way most people would think it, it is more of a slow torture of insomnia and sleep deprivation that has grown to be a real live pain for me. i am always dizzy, lightheaded and wobbly with a complete lack of enery every minute i am awake. i can not sleep no matter how exhausted i am, i am extremely anxious and irritated. i havent been able to hold a job or do any normal activities in years and this has taken the best years of my life away from me. every day i need at least 12 hours i sleep in order to get up and feel somewhat normal and be able to resume normal activities like hanging up posters in my room, brushing my teeth, etc. I feel am young man and slim but I feel like an obese 70 year old man. my doctor doesn't understand or listen. the only thing that ever worked for me and soothed all my ailments and gave me my life back was oxycodone.
To the spinal surgeon- I only got a bottle of 15 endocets (5 oxycodone and 325 acetaminophen) to originally relieve a stomach pain. then i found it worked for sleep so i only took 1 occasionally over a period of like 9 months. i used em sparingly becuz i thought i might not get more. but wud have liked to use every 2nd day or so. so how could u say my doctor did a good thing but not giving me more?

  Ok, let's leave addiction out of the equation. I don't point fingers. What about dependence? Which can be just as bad if not worse than addiction. The main use for Oxycontin is not to help you sleep. It is generally used for mild to severe pain and if it helps you sleep in the process, then that's a plus. Yes not being able to sleep can cause you to have "pain symptoms". Your body is not getting a chance to so called "repair" itself if you are not getting the proper rest. There are several good medications that you could discuss with your Dr. about taking. I am not qualified to mention them,but I am speaking from experience. You do not want to become dependent on narcotics. Then you really won't be able to sleep. Also, one day you may truly need them for the main reason they are prescribed. By then you may have built up a tolerance and then of course...you need a different (possibly higher) type of pain med or maybe none will work for you anymore. It's a vicious cycle and also one I wish I had never had the misfortune of experiencing. Because just when I finally got off of all narcotics, I noticed some of the pain med was actully causing pain. So I was feeling better than I had felt in years. Now, my luck of course... I have been diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome,(from a recent wrist surgery that was repairing the original wrist surgery) CRPS is one of the most painful things I have ever experienced. However, my tolerance for any medication that could help(until the Dr.'s are done using me as an experimental lab rat because narcotics are generally not a fix for this...torture) is completly ruined. Pain med's may as well be candy as far as my body is concerned. Please trust me, you don't want to live like that. Try talking to your PCP first and see if they have any other suggestions. They may also apperciate the fact that you are trying to avoid narcotics on your own. P.S. By the ay, I can't work either and my walls seem to get in my way too.

Oxycodone and being healthy?
I take Oxycodone everyday for pain management -30mg IR, 3 times daily. I have taken this medication for 3 years now but I am curious as to whether or not I should take any type of supplements or vitamins to maintain a healthy balance in my body. I am a 31 year old male and I suffer from chronic back pain as a result of degenerative disk disease. I do not use acetaminophen, ibuprofen or aspirin products. I do not drink alcohol and do not use any other narcotics or street drugs to include marijuana. I have a good relationship with my doctor and have talked with him before about this issue, but I would like the input of another person who also takes this medication. Take you for your response(s).
I have tried the injections but I didn't respond to them too well. I know that they do help but I like to know that I can get relief right away when it's needed. I would like to find an alternate for managing the pain.

  Have you looked at other pain releiving methods? I am not trying to downplay your pain but have you tried cortizone shots? I had very intense back pain due to DDD and herniated disks and the corizone shots worked great. The first few didn't work but the last one did. As for the question...not sure what the answer is for that.

I got my wisdom teeth removed yesterday, and i feel nauseous. why?
I'm taking 4 different kinds of meds, penicillin vk, diflunisal, oxycodone, and promethazine. the promethazine is supposed to counteract the nauseousness with the oxycodone (percoset), but everytime i stand up, i feel really hot and nauseous, even though its 68 degrees in my house. is this normal, and do you have any advice for me? and also, i'm supposed to be rinsing my mouth with saltwater today, how much salt to put in water for a quick rinse?
i'm positive i'm supposed to be on these, i wouldn't have them without a prescription from my doctor, duh, which means i'm supposed too. one of them is anti inflammatory and pain, the other is just anti inflammatory, the other is just pain, and the last is to not make me nauseous with the pain.

  Nausea is normal after any surgery because of the pain medications and the anesthesia that you go under. Take it easy for a few days, and if it doesn't get better call the dentist. The promethazine helps with the nausea, but it might not help 100%. You might also feel this way because you're not eating like you normally do. Drink lots of water and juice and eat whatever you can.

As for the salt water, use as much as it takes for the water to taste salty. It's not an exact science.

  There is no physiological mechanism by which anyone can become addicted to paracetamol. There have been reports of addiction to combination products where paracetamol is combined with an opioid medicine, but this has nothing to do with the paracetamol component.
Phenylephrine hydrochloride has had cases of addiction however tolerance is more reported and is recognised in most countries as non addictive.
Im more concerned about diphenhydramine hydrochloride which continuous use of this medication can lead to dependency and addiction.

I suggest you seek medical help if you feel you are unable to stop taking this medication
