Could I take 300-15 codeine / apap with carisoprodol 350mg?

Yes and No: Carisoporodol should only be used for a short term and not chronically for pain. It is very similar to benzodiazipines such as valium and ativan (lorazepam). These medications can interact with pain medications and cause worsening of side effects and respiratory depression. I would discuss this with your pcp. ...Read more

Tell me about pain medication like aspirin and codeine?

Tell me about pain medication like aspirin and codeine?

Dose dependent: Aspirin is good for mild pain, treats fever, and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent when used chronically. As the dose is increased, there is progressive issue with upset stomach and peptic ulceration. Codeine is good for moderate pain. As the dose is increased, it causes nausea and constipation. It is addicting. The drugs are combined to get a better total effect at lower doses. ...Read more

Is the medication Soma (carisoprodol) good for back aches?

Is the medication Soma (carisoprodol) good for back aches?

Cautious with soma (carisoprodol): Soma (carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant. I tend to be very cautious with Soma (carisoprodol) and have never prescribed it for back aches for two reasons 1) there are much better treatment modalities out there 2) it has substantial addiction and abuse potential. I might continue it if a patient's been on it for years and years from another doc, but will never use it as a first, second, or even third line medication. ...Read more

Two hours ago I took 4mg diazepam. When will it be safe to take pain medication containing total of 30mg codeine.

Two hours ago I took 4mg diazepam. When will it be safe to take pain medication containing total of 30mg codeine.

4-6 hours: Diazepam and codeine have additive sedative effects. So to be careful not to get interactions, I would wait 4-6 hours before taking the codeine. You must be careful as they both can make you tipsy, stumble or fall. So to prevent any side effects separate their use by 4-6 hours. ...Read more

Can I take a half of a acetaminophen-codeine # 300-30 and a 500 mg tylenol tab before going to bed I broke my arm and have reduced my pain medication to one half tab morning and night.

Taking: Taking too much tylenol could be dangerous. That amount you listed is reasonable, but any more then that could be dangerous to your liver. You can take advil (ibuprofen) instead of the tylenol and it is safe with acetaminophen/codeine. ...Read more

Had 1 12oz bottle of alcohol (5.9%) forgot was supposed to continue my pain medication. Codeine#3. When can I take that after having alcohol?

Right now if...: Both codeine and alcohol can make you drowsy, dizzy, lightheaded, spacey etc. So it is advised to avoid combining them as they will have an additive effect. But one beer should not affect you that much. As long as you are not driving, operating heavy machinery or performing surgery tonight it should be safe to take you pain med now if needed.

An addicting med.: An addicting pain medicine for headaches. I would recommend you don't use it. I would do my best to understand the cause of your headaches. May just need new glasses, control your blood pressure, address the stress of life/job/responsibilities rather than complicate with an addicting medication. It would be my last resort, if ever at all. Go to a headache specialist, or interventional pain doc. ...Read more

Seizures caused from depleation of good sodium in my body. Caused from over medication of drug soma. Went into hospital, they brought sodium levels up through i.V's. Taking Depakote 500 mg. 1x per day to avoid seizures. Suggest support groups, effects on

Seizures caused from depleation of good sodium in my body. Caused from over medication of drug soma. Went into hospital, they brought sodium levels up through i.V's. Taking Depakote 500 mg. 1x per day to avoid seizures. Suggest support groups, effects on

It: It is probably true than anyone can have a seizure under the right conditions. These conditions include poisoning by prescription or recreational drugs, withdrawal from prescription or recreational drugs (including alcohol), brain injuries, general illnesses, and abnormal levels of blood salts (electrolytes -- including sodium). When people have seizures with provocation, they are not considered to have epilepsy, and usually don't require long term seizure medication.

People who have a tendency to have repeated seizures with little or no provocation have epilepsy. The diagnosis is made by history, and supported by results from tests like brain-wave recordings (eegs) and brain imaging (usually mri). Epilepsy usually does require long-term use of seizure medications like depakote, or other interventions like epilepsy surgery.

Taking Depakote for a provoked seizure is an unusual clinical approach. Depakote can be given for other reasons. Since Depakote use can be accompanied by serious short term and long term side effects, it is important to see a doctor to develop a better understanding for its use in specific cases. ...Read more

Having chest, neck left arm, shoulder blade pains, when I take codeine phosphate or nytol tablets, can these medications cause heart problemsj?

Not usually, but..: These are not typical side effects. But as I like to say, every medicine has killed somebody sometime. Rarely, any drug may cause an unexplained or unusual reaction in a few people: nobody knows why, and it is called an idiosyncratic drug reaction. Of course, not taking medicines has killed a lot of people too. Apparently these two medicines and you do not agree. Do not take them. ...Read more

Can someone be hospitalized for bronchitis if prescription medication is not relieving chest tightness? Medications prescribed on 1/24/12: albuterol inhaler, cough sysrup with codeine, nebulizer treatment at urgent care facility on 1/24/12 only, predislon

See your personal MD: Medications prescribed are working against each other. Albuterol is a broncho dilator which helps you to cough up mucous. Codeine is a cough suppressant making it harder for you to cough up mucousrather than an urgent care center, it might be a better idea to make an appointment with your doctor to get you on proper medication. ...Read more

Will Soma (carisoprodol) show up on a drug test?

Depends: On whether they test for it. In some areas where abuse of carisoprodol is common (and it is one of the drugs that are "pushed" in pill mills (together with alprazolam/xanax) along with opioids. On routine 7 or 10 panel tests that look for opiates, benzos, cocaine, amphetamine, marijuana, barbiturates, PCP etc) it is NOT tested for. It is, however, a highly abusable and dangerous drug. ...Read more

Can Soma (carisoprodol) show up in a 6 panel drug test?

Not likely: Soma (carisoprodol) is not specifically tested for. However, I wonder about the motivation of this question. Soma (carisoprodol) can be mis-used. Have a frank discussion with your doctor about it's proper use. Focus on getting help for your symptoms and not on obtaining a medication. You are in control of your health. Don't become dependent on a medication. ...Read more

Help can codeine sulfate and hydrocodone show up as the same in a simple drug test?

Help can codeine sulfate and hydrocodone show up as the same in a simple drug test?

Yes: Drugs tests look for 2 essential chemicals when they look for opiates - Codeine and morphine, which are similar compounds and they are both converted into each other. Hydrocodone is metabolized into Codeine which is then transformed by acetylation to morphine. These are the final common pathway products for most, but not all, opiates. Oxycodone produces relatively little, is has separate test. ...Read more

Can you tell me for example if someone is on pain meds, say codeine based or whatever, opiates. Will they show as up readings of illegal drugs?

Tests can't tell the: Difference, they only can say what chemicals are present. There is a specific metabolite of heroin that can be detected in urine tests within 1-2 days of use, but otherwise, no matter whether the person is using prescribed or street drugs, what shows up are Codeine and morphine, and several intermediate products, depending on what drug you are on.
