  No. All it does is search websites in its directory for search terms. These websites will probably mostly be scam ones.

Has anyone taken Tramadol hydrochloride, Acetaminophen for pain?
I am wondering if it makes you loopy? I have a script for pain, but worried that I will not function well with a 7 year old at home. Any info? I get nervous about painkillers. Thanks!!

  I was recently prescribed Tramadol 100mg tablets for my tendinits, after a month of using these i felt that i didn't need them anymore.... later did i realise that my body had become dependant on them. I suffered withdrawals such as insomnia, flu like symptoms, headaches, restless legs, depression.

I am just passing on my experience of Tramadol, please type tramadol into the 'search for questions' section on yahoo answers for other peoples stories about using Tramadol.

Hope you get better soon. x

how long does it take to be physically addicted to Tramadol?
how long does it take to get addicted to tramadol hydrochloride or ultram? Like how long would you have to take them then stop suddenly to experience withdrawal symptoms?

  That is something hunni that noone can answer really, as it depends on the person.

But you will understand that you are addicted to it if:

Using the medication in a manner not prescribed
Taking more of the medication than prescribed
Reporting lost medication in order to obtain more
Asking for refills long before refills would be due
Using several doctors and pharmacies to get more tramadol
Stealing the drug or asking others who take the drug for a few pills
Thinking about or obsessing over when the next dose can be obtained or taken

Those who are concerned about tramadol addiction should speak with their physicians. Physicians can help determine which methods are safest for reducing and finally ending intake of this drug, while the person experiences less severe withdrawal symptoms. Programs offering ultra rapid detox, which quickly exits the drug from the body and ends physical addiction, best serve some patients. However these people will still require follow up work with a drug treatment program.

what is TRAMADOL HYDROCHLORIDE-(TRAM uh dol) ?

  One of the crappiest Opiate based narcotics ever made in my opinion. And I will say this so someone else on here can interject. It has a 9 hour half life and is a 50 to 100 mg pill. On this half life, if you take four a day your gonna have up to 400mg's in you. If half gets depleted in 9 hours that's 200 left. Than 9 after that 100 than 9 after that which would be 27 hours 50 and into the next day. So if the drug holds a 100mg to 50 mg foundation every 24 hours you can see how it can build up in you. WITHDRAW is not 21 days but it can take up to 21 days to get out of you and I have the most credible sources in the world!

This is a very weak opiate which randomly hits receptors and it gets it's extra punchy feeling of euphoria from it's anti-depressant serotonin channeling properties. Which incidentally can trigger terrible manic thoughts, depression, not sleeping, suicidal tendencies if the blood level is not maintained at a functioning level. Take it with Prozac and your done. Withdrawal can include brain Zaps. Does that sound good? Extreme blood shot ,baggy eyes.

If you are not a person physically dependant on opiates this can be a good drug. I have heard actual pharmacologists refer to it as a joke. To A person physically dependant on opiates this drug in my opinion is a death sentence. One; there are still people that believe the lie it is a non-narcotic, non-opiate. OKAYYYYYYYY! And pigs fly, right?

It is totally synthetic and on a physically dependant person and a person that was a user of this drug for a long time, the withdrawal is hell and in my opinion worse than anything I ever felt. And minded there was nothing else in me! I personally think a person is better off taking hydrocodone. I would not recommend this drug to my worse enemy. I heard a pain managment person say on here withdraw is only two days. Nonesense! The drug will not even be out of your system in two days. And half life has nothing to do with when a drug gets out of your system. Example marijuana has a half life of a few hours but it stays in you a month. Alcohols half life is a half hour per ounce but it stays in you 24 hours.

You need methadone or another opiate to get off this stuff. It is next to impossible to wean off this in the doses it is calibrated in and half life. I have wrote many things on this drug in my previous questions. Look by all means. Type in Ultram sucks on Google. This drug SUCKS! Can it help you if you never took a pain pill, yea. Do I think a person should be on it for years? HELL NO. Should I put the fear of God in people instead of tell them its just wonderful, absolutely! I am not going to lie to you like pharmaceutical giants that claim Ambien is non habit forming .

tramadol hydrochloride capsules are they for arthirtus?
dot
03/11/08
Reply
  yes they can be used for most any pain including arthritis. They are fairly new and expensive..but the main benefit of them is that they do not have codeine or narcotics in them like many other pain killers (Tylenol 3 etc). The benefit of that is that you do not get side effects of constipation or acid reflux or hemmorhoids which are common with long term use of Codeine and other narcotics.

I have had no side effects at all. Ask your doctor and if he supports you, give them a try and see if it gives you some relief.

Taking Ultram or Flexiril while treating chlamydia with Zithromax?
Hey there, I recently found out I have chlamydia so bought the treatment for it Zithromax they gave me a box with 3 500 mg Azithromycin. The symptoms of chlamydia have not yet gone away because im only on my 2nd pill (its one every 8 hours). I sometimes use Tramadol (Ultram Hydrochloride) or Flexiril (Cyclobenzaprine) recreationally basically just be cause I like the feeling, do not try to tell me that getting high of pills is stupid, senseless, dangeroues, etc. I dont care, i am not and addict and will not become one. My dosage of tramadol is usually 3 50mg capsules and Flexiril ill usually take about 50mg. I dont mix them, they are just two muscle relaxants that I like to use. I was wondering if take my zithromax on the same day I take tramadol or flexiril if it will have any negative effects? and if it will heal the treatment of my chlamydia.
Thank you

  Tramadol/Ultram is a non-narcotic analgesic medication for pain. Tramadol HAS NO anti-inflammatory properties. It is prescription only.
Ibuprofen/advil/motrin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which when used at 400mg strength is for pain and fever treatment. When used at 600mg strength is useful as an anti-inflammatory. Over 600mg is not efficatious and has a higher side effect profile like gastric ulcers.

I believe the company that makes tramadol is comming out with a ibuprofen/tramadol combo soon like their acetominophen/tramadol combo called Ultracet. Both are prescription only.

  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

  I don't know about Tramadol Hydrochloride but Tramadol gives you a high. I had Tramadol a couple of years ago and I became high as a kite in the beginning as well as addicted. I would not recommend anyone to take it for a longer period of time, at least not without close supervision from a doctor.

  There a few issues involved in your situation that relate to drinking alcohol.

First, alcohol can raise your blood sugar, which may be problematic since you are diabetic. As long as you limit your intake to 1 or 2 servings, this probably won't be a serious problem.

Secondly, celecoxib is an NSAID (the same class of drugs as aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.) On their own NSAIDs can cause irritation to the lining the of the stomach - for example, elderly people experiencing stomach bleeds while on chronic aspirin therapy. Alcohol is also irritating to the lining of the stomach. When you combine the two, you increase your risk for developing complications.

Thirdly, tramadol is a medication that causes CNS depression, with symptoms such as drowsiness, confusion, and impaired coordination. Alcohol is also a CNS depressant, so in this case as well it can increase the risk of complications with the tramadol.

While none of these are reasons to completely avoid alcohol, they put you in the situation of needing to be especially cautious if you do choose to drink.

It's always a good idea for you physician and your pharmacist to know all the medications you are taking. This helps to prevent dangerous drug interactions and complications.

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.
Angela

Reply
  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.

  My checking on the interaction of tramadol and carbamazepine is that the combination can increase seizures and increases problems with the liver. The possible problem with the liver is monitored through blood work. If your liver profile goes bad, they will stop one drug or the other. If you don't have seizures (carbamazepine is also prescribed for seizures), then you may not be affected, but watch for signs.
I am not an MD, but I think what your doctor is trying has some risk involved, but all medication does. Be watchfull and monitor yourself for side effects, tell your doctor, and require more explanation than you say you are given. You have to watch for yourself in this new world of medicine.
Also. carbamazepine will increase your sensitivity to light and sunburn. You have to be cautious. High PF sunscreen is necessary. Good luck.

What is the difference between vicodin and tramadol?
I have been taking vicodin for a while for back pain/headaches. I am thinking about switching to tramadol because it is cheaper and easier to get. What is the difference between the two?
My question is if I have been taking vicodin for awhile or hydrocodone am I going to go through withdrawel symptoms if I switch to tramadol? Also why does everyone on her always jump to the conclusion that if you have a question about opieds you are an addict?

  Vicodin is a combination of Tylenol and Hydrocodone bitartrate which is an opioid analgesic and antitussive with unknown mechanism of action but it is thought to be related to the presence of opiate receptors in the central nervous system. It has an action similar to those of codeine which mostly involve the CNS and smooth muscle .

Tramodol is a centrally-acting opioid analgesic that exerts its effect through the inhibition of norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake .

Both are used for acute and chronic pain, and both have addiction potential. If your MD is prescibing these medications for you, either should be readily available at your pharmacy. Take precaution whe using Vicodin, because of the Tylenol content. Tylenol is toxic to the body if you take an excessive of 3000-4000mg per day.

Also, I would suggest you talk to your MD about non-narcotic medications that may prevent you fom getting headaches. Beta blockers, Tricyclic antidepressants, Valproic Acid, Calcium channel blockers and Topamax are all known to have some measure of effectiveness in preventing chronic daily headaches. As with any medication, please use with caution, and under the supervision of an MD.

  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.

What is better, Vicodin with a higher amount of Acetaminophen or less?
Is higher the Acetaminophen mg mean more aspirin? I went from 7.5/500mg to 7.5/750mg. And I think the other works better. Which is better? If the Acetaminophen is less is the Hydrocodone more or stronger?

  First of all acetaminophen is not aspirin, it is acetaminophen, which is tylenol. Acetaminophen is added to opiate pain killers because acetaminophen keeps the opiate working longer. In theory, more acetaminophen should keep the pain killer working longer.

  5 tablespoons of Nyquil seems like a heck of a lot.
Yes, that's why they tell you that. Acetaminophen, when used correctly, is great for pain and fever. But in higher than recommended doses, it can cause liver damage. That's why they tell you not to mix medications. In the dose you just described, you were probably close to exceeding the maximum recommended daily dose of it.

It it safe to take Oxaprozin and Tramadol at the same time?
I'm in chronic pain which is why I'm on Tramadol.
I am also on Amoxicillin and Oxaprozin.
Is it safe to take all three at the times they say on the bottle? Or should I take them separately?
Here's the info:

Amoxicillin-500MG (1 Capsule twice daily)
Oxaprozin-600MG (2 Tablets every day)
Tramadol-50MG (1 Tablet three times daily as needed)

  Yes...it is relatively safe, but I agree that you should always check with your pharamacist on things like that...they can pull your whole list of medications and run a drug-drug interaction profile on them.
Tramadol (such as Ultram) is an opioid agonist (means it binds to the receptors of the pain in the brain)
while Oxaprozin (such Daypro) is an anti-inflammatory...means like celebrex / advil ... and works on the inflammation part of pain...
as long as you don't drink while on those medications and not mix them with over the counter stuff such as (Advil - Ibuprofen..) you should be OK.
Once again, check with your pharamacist or doctor when in doubt.

The difference between Tramadol and Ultram ER?
I've been taking Tramadol 50 mg for a while, and recently my doctor prescribed me 14 Ultram ER 300mg, and says to take only one a day. Im wondering what are the difference between these two? Are they the same thing but one has more mg, or are they completely different? And which would be more effective?
So taking an Ultram ER 300mg would be like taking 6 tramadol 50mg throughout the day?
Automusk
11/04/08
Reply
  They are exactly the same drug but Ultram is slow release of 300mg across the day whereas 50mg of tramadol will only last you a few hours. If you have chronic pain, an extended release like Ultram is probably better, giving you a "base"of pain relief across the day, rather than letting it build up. By the way, Paracetamol and Tramadol(or Ultram) work well together and do not interfere with each other.
Add- yes but with the 50mg, your pain level will go up and down (according to when you took the tablet) so if it's long term pain, I would stick with one 300mg tablet a day.

Your question is which is stronger- well the Darvocet is.

But the real question should be- what is more effective for pain.

That answer is- It depends on the type of pain and severity.

Darvocet is stronger.

  I'm sure you can find most of those there. The times I've been there I've bought typical stuff that you can find here over the counter because they are cheaper (cough tablets, ibuprofren, antibiotic ointments etc.) I have seen others buy Antibiotics such as Amoxicillin and Penicillin without prescriptions but be careful when coming back to the US with them because the laws here are obviously different when it comes to prescription drugs. If you are caught with any of these and have no prescription for it you could be in real big trouble. Not only that you just need to be careful when self medicating period.

  The first number in either of the meds 7.5/750 and 10/660 is the miligrams of hydrocodone in the medication. The second number is the miligrams of acetaminophen. Vicodin and hydrocodone are the same drug, hydrocodone is just the generic name whereas Vicodin is the trade name. The med he changed you to has more of the narcotic, and less of the acetaminophin. As far as needing something stronger goes, that would be up to your doc. There are stronger drugs like oxycontin and hydromorphone, but I would hope you don't need those. Take care.

How does acetaminophen reduce fever, and is it bad to use when trying to get over a virus?
I've been sick for about a day now and I have to be somewhere very important tomorrow. Is acetaminophen slowing my healing process?
Storman Norman
04/22/10

  Acetaminophen is an analgesic so there is no way it can affect your healing process. The main mechanism of action of paracetamol is considered to be the inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX), recent findings suggest that it is highly selective for COX-2. Cyclooxygenase (COX) is an enzyme that is responsible for formation of important biological mediators called prostanoids, including prostaglandins, prostacyclin and thromboxane. Pharmacological inhibition of COX can provide relief from the symptoms of inflammation and pain.

Question to Tramadol users?
In the last two months I have been on a medication called Tramadol. I am also on several other medicines (Lyrica, Synthroid, Cytomel, Maxzide, etc.). Within the last month and a half-I'm assuming within the time-frame of my body getting used to the medicine-I have been getting these really horrible feelings of dread and terror. Is this a normal side-effect or could it be a conflict of some kind with one of my other medicines?

Acetaminophen has been linked to Respiratory Disease and Lung Function capacity reduction?
"Oxidative stress may increase the risk of asthma, contribute to asthma progression, and decrease lung function. Previous research suggests that use of acetaminophen, which is hypothesized to reduce antioxidant capacity in the lung, is associated with an increased risk of asthma. We hypothesized that acetaminophen use may also be associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and decreased lung function".

Could High Acetaminophen use be linked to Sleep Apnea as well?
Black Sheep 1
01/13/08
Reply
  The study you cited (McKeever, Am. J Resp Crit Care, 2005) is a population-based study examining the effect of chronic, daily use of pain relievers on lung function. Of the 3 types studied (aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen), the rates were 8%, 4%, and 2% respectively among daily users. Most people use pain relievers for temporary relief. If they suffer from chronic pain, they should seek medical attention.

Sleep apnea is a disorder where patients breath inadequately or stop breathing during sleep. The most common cause is obstructive sleep apnea, where the soft tissue in the mouth/neck collapse and impair airflow. The most common cause is due to obesity, though there are non-obese patients with this disorder.

Presently, there are no studies that definitely link acetaminophen use with obstructive sleep apnea.

Where can I find these meds, without paying a fortune n without a precription, they are tramadol n vicoprofen?
I dont want to spend much, I have neck and back pain and the cost of going to a doctor is too much for me. I also cant find this medicine without having a fee charged or something. I take ultram or tramadol but want to find it cheaper, the vicoprofen works best but I dont want to have to pay for the prescription or counseling etc. HELP!!

acetaminophen 650mg ----------for reducing pain and fever
pheniramine maleate 20mg ---------------antihistamine
Phenylephrine hydrochloride 10mg-----------nasal decongestant
or would that be to much medicen in my body? I weigh 130 pounds 5'5

  Your max dose of ibuprofen would be 800 mg every 8 hours. This can be taken in conjunction with those other medicines in TheraFlu.

You can definitely take acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen together. Often times, I tell people to alternate between them every 3-4 hours for lots of fever and pain.

The antihistamine and nasal decongestant don't have any interactions with the ibuprofen so you can continue to take the Theraflu as directed and the ibuprofen 600 mg every 6 hours.

  Yes you can take those meds together, they are from completely different families of drugs. Although I would not recommend continuing either of them for a long period of time. Long term use of acetaminophen can cause liver damage, but not addictive. Naproxen is an anti inflammatory which will help your father with any pain or swelling he may have right after his fall, it to is not a narcotic or additive but it can damage the lining in the stomach causing pain with possible GI bleed if used long term.

How much acetaminophen is needed to cause liver damage?
I'm currently taking Darvocet and each pill has 650mg of acetaminophen in it. I was told to take up to 3 per day, but that seems like a lot to me. Also, does anyone know anything about the other ingredient in Darvocet? I know it's sort of like codiene, but how so?

  Darvocet N-100 is Propoxyphene with Tylenol. The maximum amount of Tylenol and adult can take in a 24 hour period is 4 Gm or 4000 milligrams. More than that is believed to cause liver damage. Propoxyphene is the narcotic pain reliever in the drug it is probably the lowest on the scale for pain relief.

  Its really fine. In fact, you can take 3 ibuprofen with one extra strength Tylenol, or Medication containing it. Only do this for a very short amount of time, as it can cause liver damage. It has a non narcotic effect on the pain,and I use it very often with hydrocodone with Tylenol.

Is it safe to take the generic for Claritin D and take two Pain Reliever Pills?
Is that too much acetaminophen or is it ok? Does Claritin D have acetaminophen
lip balm junkie
11/10/08
Reply
  The Claritin D and generics for it have the antihistamine and a decongestant. There is not any acetominophen in either the Claritin D or the generic, so you may take a pain reliever or two. When you are taking acetominophen, though, be very careful to keep your '24 hour intake' of it to below 1000 mg. per day. If you take acetominophen, you'll need to take more in four hours to keep the 'pain' away, so add up the milligrams of the pills you are taking. You may want to take another 'pain killer' that also relieves inflammation. Most people take ibuprofem, which can be 'piggy-backed' with the acetominophen for greater pain relief. If you are 'sick' for more than five days with this 'self treatment' you will need to see a doctor, because of the possibility of needing other treatment for you to get better, and to also keep from 'overdosing' on basically 'good drugs' accidentally.

What's the difference between these pain pills?
I was taking Naproxen with Advil, but it made me feel sick to my stomach.

So, the doc put me on Sulindac with Advil, which made me even sicker to my stomach, along with some other bad side effects.

Now, he has given me Tramadol and I feel pretty good right now.

All they are in the same class of drugs or can someone give me some more insight as to the differences of Naproxen & Tramadol?

Anything special to watch out for?

Thanks for any help.

  Naproxin and Advil are both NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. By taking both at once you are basically over-dosing because the two medications are so similar. I'm not familiar with Sulindac. But given your reaction, I guess it is a similar medication. Tramadol is not an NSAID. So you are not getting the overdose effect. Did you tell your doctor you were taking the Advil? If he knew you were taking it he shouldn't have prescribed another NSAID or he should have told you to stop taking the Advil. If you are taking multiple pain relievers, make sure they are not in the same class of drugs.

Tramadol, Flexeril and Promethazine the risk of seizure can I take?
I've taken 3 tramadol earlier today last one around 6pm. It made my stomach hurt so I took a promethazine around 10pm. Now, the pain is back and I want to sleep is it safe to take my flexeril?

  i take Tramadol daily and I have taken Promethazine with it. It may increase the effects of tramadol and the drug interactions site does say it may cause seizures but i think that is very rare. You usually have to have a history of seizures for this to happen usually. It is also associated with large doses of Tramadol, 300mg and up. The Flexeril should be fine too. 9 times out of 10 the pharmacy wont tell you to do anything dangerous but sometimes the drug interaction checker will scare you. It's always good to be cautious though, you don't want to be another Heath Ledger.

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.

I was reading up on anticonvulsants and acetaminophen and how they can cause liver problems. Can a serious dose of Excedrin (250mg acetaminophen, 250mg aspirin, 65mg caffeine), more specifically 8 Excedrin taken at one time, interact with my Trileptal? Aside from the expected side effects, nausea, hyper-activity, and possibly racing heart, will I have any liver problems? Any long term liver problems? Or should I get my ass to the nearest hospital?

  Drugs usually have two names, the generic and the brand
name.

This information is from the drug interaction site of which
I placed the link below:
Interact of OXCARBAZEPINE (in Trileptal, Trileptal Suspension) may interact with ACETAMINOPHEN (in Excedrin Extra Strength)
Oxcarbazepine may increase the rate at which acetaminophen is broken down by the liver. This may result in less effective pain relief due to the diminished amount of acetaminophen. In addition, the increased amount of metabolite (break-down product) may increase the risk of liver damage. Ask your healthcare provider about these drugs and this potential interaction "as soon as possible".

All medications, whether over the counter..herbs.. herbal teas..or medications prescribed by other doctors should
be checked out first with the doctor you are seeing for
this condition and prescribed this drug for you.

Here is the site I got this information from, so you can
check in the future about whether a drug may interact
with any other medications you have:
http://www.drugdigest.org/DD/Interaction/ChooseDrugs/1,4109,,00.html

The liver is a very quiet organ when it comes to a problem
with it. It may show no signs or symptoms that there is
anything wrong with it until the cells die and it cannot
perform the functions it once did to keep the body healthy
and alive. Many people are walking around not knowing
they have damage to their livers until a doctor may
discover it when they are trying to find answers for other
medical problems. I definitely would arrange for a
doctor appointment and tell the doctor about it. It is better
to have a few blood labs drawn than to risk facing having
to have a transplant.
How serious this may be depends on your own body
chemistry, the action of the drugs in your body, and how
often and how much you took of these drugs.

There are two types of blood tests the doctor can do:
one will show if there is damage to the liver, known as
the liver enzymes and the other will show if the liver is
functioning well, known as the liver function tests.
He may even feel to see if your liver has enlarged any and
may do an ultrasound to see if it has developed inflammation.
The inflammation has to be controlled by drugs so the
liver will heal, if not...it can lead to permanent damage and
death of the cells.

Overdosing on just tylenol is very easy to do as many
combination drugs have tylenol in them. Doctors don't
always have the time to explain to patients what drugs
may interact, that is why pharmacies give a paper to
read with your medication when you get it. If you are
not sure about a drug interaction, you can always call
your local pharmacy and ask the pharmacist about it.
Don't be afraid to do this...they have all the information
right there with the drugs they need to tell you this from.

You have definitely taken too much of this medication
at one time...you need to decide whether you should
get in contact with the doctor office now or later...I
cannot make this decision for you.

I hope this information is of some help to you.

  This medicine is used for moderate pain and fever. Propoxyphene is a potent, narcotic pain-reliever and has a sedating effect. It's able to reduce the pain, though it may not relieve it altogether, and also works as a cough suppressant; while Acetaminophen is a non-narcotic analgesic with antipyretic qualities. These two together work on nerve signals in the brain to block the perception of pain and give greater relief than when taken separately, while Acetaminophen also brings down fever.

  You may or may not feel similar side effects with the tramadol. Dizziness, drowsiness and weakness are the most common side-effects of tramadol. Also, contrary to the above responders, tramadol is a synthetic opioid, and can be addictive. I have had several people come to me complaining of having withdrawal problems with tramadol, and I have had to assist them through these issues. Additionally, a serious side-effect which is notable with Ultram (tramadol) which is not a significant issue with most opioid pain relievers is the risk of seizures, as it lowers the seizure threshold in susceptible patients.

You will often have responders on YA tell you that this medication is similar to motrin, or tylenol, but it is a narcotic. When it was originally released, it was felt that due to the composition of the drug it would not have abuse potential, so it is not controlled. This has now been found to be incorrect.

You may have equal, better or less lain relief with tramadol, and equal, better or more side-effects. It may be worth a try, but don't take this medication thinking it has none of the risks of other pain medications.

Good luck with your pain control

Can someone please help me with a question about Midol and Ibuprofen?
Hi, I use medications with ibuprofen like Motrin and Advil to deal with cramps. However, I have recently noticed that I suffer from quite a bit of bloating also so I'm thinking about switching to Midol which is also supposed to help with bloat and fatigue. One thing I've noticed about Midol is that it does not use ibuprofen for pain relief, it uses something called Acetaminophen. Anyway I usually take 1 or 2 200 mg of ibuprofen to deal with the pain but Midol uses 500 mg of Acetaminophen for each gelcap. Does anyone know if the two drugs have equal pain relieving power? Thanks, your answers are much appreciated.
I did say I'm planning on switching to Midol not taking both and I've gone to Midol.com but I'm trying to find out if ibuprophen and acetaminophen have equal pain relieving power or do you have to take more or less.

  Most books say that the typical approach is low dose acetaminophen (500-1000mg) per day which most texts say isn't too harmful, but that would probably assume you were not in the later stages. I hate to say it but in many cases I see narcotics being used such as a low acetaminophen hydrocodone combo. 10/325 or something like that to minimize the amount of tylenol. I have to say this but, opiate pain medications can be very addictive as I cannot suggest someone resort to that unless they are aware of the potential dangers if they aren't already. Oxycodone is not supposed to be harmful to the liver, or at least not that any research has found yet that I'm aware of. So, that is sometimes used if the dr. feels it is appropriate. I would assume that a plain oxycodone pill minus the tylenol would be the best bet if absolutely necessary. I guess it would all depend on what other health problems you have and what parts of your gastrointestinal system are most sensitive. Even the oxycodone while not particularly harmful to your liver can cause constipation and that probably wouldn't be real helpful if your friends liver is weak. It's really tough to find a pain med that is side-effect free... although exedrin has always worked wonders for me, tylenol and aspirin by themselves do nothing, but small doses of caffeine are added to dilates the blood vessels.

I have been making a list of herbal remedies that are safe and effective, and it seems that she may find an answer there. Ultimately, it is up to her doctor to decide what is best suited for your friends case. Try searching the links below and perhaps you may find some info she can discuss with her doctor there.

Mixing naproxen,acetaminophen and fexmid?
I have a lot of muscle pain that flares up occasionally. I had a prescrip for 500 mg of vimovo (naproxen and esomerprazole magnesium) and Fexmid 7.5 mg (cyclobenzaprine). I took the naproxen thinking it was a muscle relaxer and then took two 500 mg of acetaminophen. I checked the internet to make sure that was not a problem and it looks okay. But i would like to take the fexmid (muscle relaxer) but do not want to have an interaction. Anyone know about this? Thanks for your help.

I've tried Britesmile and it didn't do much at all. Anyone know of any other system that will work after taking tetracycline hydrochloride?

  Your NOT going to find anything that will remove that staining.

Zoom Whitening, is the best system out there, that i have seen. I perform the Zoom Whitening Treatment in my office. Plain and simple it wont whiten Tetracycline stains. Nothing will.... Not even, Internal Bleaching. I've seen it (internal bleaching by the doctors) and done it (the Zoom treatment).. and its just NOT going to happen.

what are lincomycin hydrochloride and lidocaine hydrochloride gel use for?

  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!

pseudoephedrine hydrochloride?
I failed a drug test for meth-amphetamine. I don't do drugs, so I was wondering if pseudoephedrine hydrochloride contained some type of ingredient to cause this. I took Sudafed 12 hour sinus relief.

  I dont see why not. They are two completely different medications. Compazine is an anitemetic, antipsychotic and is used for nausea, vomiting and some psychotic disorders. Tramadol is a central analgesic used for management of moderate to severe pain.

Hydrocodone Bitartrate Oral Solution?
I know this is going to sound awful but I figured I should try anyway.

Just recently I was released from the hospital after a surgery. I as given prescriptions for Hydrocodone Bitartrate and Acetaminophen Oral solution and Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen pills but, while taking the dosage prescribed (for the oral solution), we were unable to manage my pain. I later called my doctor who simply told me "take more". My family has a history of having weak livers so the thought of taking such a large amount of Acetaminophen made me uncomfortable.

Anyway, I contacted my doctor who said I would be fine but I was still uncomfortable. While doing my own little research, I found that I could safely extract the hydrocodone from the pills (which honestly led to my boyfriend wondering if I was using it for more then just my pain) but I was unable to find if I could extract it from the oral solution....


My question is.. is there any way to extract the hydrocodone from the oral solution? Would the cold water extraction work?

  They are 325mgs-37.5mg, and no you can't get high off of it, if you want to do this your self, next time go to pill wizard.com and you can find out the source of any pill.
I never heard of anyone selling these, but the price would be very low, like maybe 75 cents not over a doller, but it's almost the same as extra strength tylenol, so why would anyone want to buy some crap like that? Now if you had Viccodon, percocet, oxy's, then ya, you would make some cash.

  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.

NyQuil or Theraflu for a cold?
I am about to go to bed and was thinking what should I take before I do so? I have body aches, feel clammy and have been tired all day. I also feel very horse I guess would be there term? I guess congested in my chest would better describe it. I want to wake up feeling better =) So Should I take Theraflu for FLU & Sore throat or Vicks NyQuil (nighttime) Multi-sympton Cold/Flue relief.

Theraflu contains Acetaminophen 650 mg Pheniramine maleate 20 mg and Phenylphrine hydrochlodride 10mg

NyQuil contains Acetaminophen 500 mg Dextromethorphan 15 mg and doxylamine succinate 6.25 mg

So which is the better to take?

Any difference between different types of diphenhydramine hydrochloride?
I go through quite a bit of benadryl to deal with allergies. Is there any reason why I shouldn't start buying the cheap, generic over-the-counter sleep aids containing the same dose (25mg) of diphenhydramine hydrochloride as benadryl?

  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.

pleurisy and tussicaps?
i have really bad bronchitis and pleurisy. i was prescribed tramadol and benzonatate ( they called it something pearls..they are like little gel caps). Well, the tramadol has not helped with the pain at all. I called the dr. today and told him, and he called me in something called "tussicaps". Has anyone ever heard of this? does it help for pleurisy? the pain in my chest is terrible!! I can hardly take a deep breath. it feels like i am being stabbed all the way through to my back. the prescribtion for the tussicaps says take 2 a day, if i take one and it doesn't help can i take another one a little while later or do i have to wait a certain amount of time? I would call and ask the Dr., but they are closed now and won't be back till after Christmas. Help!!
They did give me an antibiotic, zithromax. They also asked me if i had a productive cough, and i told them that i did..it's green with little thready red in it. I had a chest x-ray but it was clear. they actually gave me 2 print outs when i was discharged..one for bronchitis, and one for pleurisy. so, i don't know what i have but that is what they told me i had. either way, the medicine they gave me doesn't seem to do a thing! it's been about 2 weeks now and i still feel like my chest is going to cave in!

  Bronchitis and pleurisy don't go together. The pain in your chest is more likely to be strained intercostal muscles from coughing. Pleurisy happens when you have pneumonia, atelectasis, chest wall injury, a history of pleuritis from TB, some pneumoconioses. If you had told your doctor you have pleuritic type chest pain I'm sure he would have ordered a chest xray to check for what I listed above and a few more things.What he did order is a cough suppressant. This will reduce the number of times you cough and therefore lessen the strain on your muscles. If you had a productive cough he/she would have asked you what color you are bringing up. But that didn't happen or he/she would have ordered an antibiotic for you and not a cough suppressant.
Do not exceed the reccomended dose of any medicine that your doctor prescribes or you get OTC. Go to an emergency room and let them decide what's best.
God bless you and keep you healthy.

  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
