Allergic to morphine, vicodin, codeine, nsaids. Chronically ill, looking for pain relief. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is useless. Tramadol ok? Other suggestions?

Painful situation: You have a difficult problem which is not uncommon. You need a concerned physician to review the reactions and what alternatives are available for treatment. Ideally you could see an allergist and a pain specialist to resolve this issue. Also i would be looking into alternative methods of controlling pain such as stress reduction meditation and even possibly acupuncture. ...Read more

What are some mitochondrial disorder support groups in existence?

What are some mitochondrial disorder support groups in existence?

Look online: Since mitochondrial disorders are still considered rare disease entities, support groups at a local level would be very dificult to find. I suggest you go online to some of the big centers in the us who deal with the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders (ie. Children's hospital of philidelphia, cleveland clinic) and see if they have online support groups and parental geoups. ...Read more

Expert opinions? Which is stronger, hydrocodone or tylenol (acetaminophen) with codine?

Expert opinions? Which is stronger, hydrocodone or tylenol (acetaminophen) with codine?

No such thing as: "stronger." it is a misnomer to talk about strong and weak opiates, although doctors do this too. It depends on dose and side effects. Codeine is relatively impotent - takes 30 mg to equal 5 mg of hydrocodone, but at those same doses they do pretty much the same thing. However, Codeine has way more potential for side effects, especially at higher doses, so it is more poorly tolerated over 60 mg. ...Read more

Can there be addiction support groups for chronic pain patients?

Can there be addiction support groups for chronic pain patients?

Depends: There seems to be a confusion in your mind about physical dependence and addiction. Addiction is psychological dependence on the substance not for controlling the pain but feeling good. Pain is not the issue in such cases and usually illegal means employed to obtain the substance. For such persons there are detox clinics followed by support group. If you obtain opioids for pain, no need for group. ...Read more

What's the least organ damaging/most body friendly of the OTC painkillers? Tylenol, (acetaminophen) Advil, or Aleve? (I realize those are brand names...)

What's the least organ damaging/most body friendly of the OTC painkillers?  Tylenol, (acetaminophen) Advil, or Aleve?   (I realize those are brand names...)

All are safe: None will injure you used as directed. Some folks get elevated liver function tests from even a little Tylenol (acetaminophen). Advil reversibly damages the kidneys if you get dehydrated on the stuff. Same for Aleve. Some folks get liver sensitivity to any of these. I would choose the one that gives you the best pain relief, drink plenty of water, and not worry about this. ...Read more

Dental Major Infection/Pain, Tyl#3 or Tramadol, Ibuprofen not working?

See a dentist ASAP: You must treat the source of the infection, not only the symptoms. Therefore, you need to clean out the inside of the tooth to remove the bacteria which is the source of the infection. The pain medication cannot reach the source of the infection. Ask your dentist for more information. ...Read more

Excedrine migraine, tylenol, (acetaminophen) aspirin, and Aleve don't work for many other ideas?

Migraine management : Any headache must be viewed as a valid medical disorder and the headache assessment must be comprehensive. Once a diagnosis of migraine has been made, effective management of migraine involves three specific strategies: 1) patient education, 2) nonpharmacological management, and 3) pharmacological (medical) management. Rec.: see an orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation. ...Read more

Can you take 1 ibuprofen 600mg 4-5 hours after taking 2 extra strength tylenols (acetaminophen) that are not working well?

Can you take 1 ibuprofen 600mg  4-5 hours after taking 2 extra strength tylenols (acetaminophen) that are not working well?

Yes: But don't do this on a regular basis. Normally, it's recommended that you take 4 tabs of Ibuprofen 600 mg a day and 4-6 tablets of tylenol (acetaminophen) 500 mg a day. So if you combine both, i'd suggest 2 each of the tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen per day on alternating doses. Don't drink alcohol with it. Drink lots of liquids. If you develop stomach upset, nausea, vomiting or fever, go see yourdr take care! ...Read more

Is tylenol (acetaminophen) dangerous for people with hepatitis c?

Low dose recommended: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is generally not a problem for people with liver disease, so long as you take a relatively low dose (not to exceed 2 grams in 24 hours). In general, hepatitis patients do not have to worry about adjusting drug dosages until they start getting chronic liver problems. When these problems begin, they should avoid other anti-inflammtory drugs (like ibuprofen, aspirin, etc.) besides tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read more
