What is a common post-surgery IV drug used for pain? It sounds something like laudanum - at least the "um"?
Asked by Emilio Cutcher 1 year ago.

Injectable products for post surgical pain include: Astramorph, Demerol, Dilaudid, Duraclon, Duramorph, Fentanyl, Hydromorphone, Ketorolac, Meperidine, Methadone, Morphine, Numorphan, Opana, and Talwin. You probably got Dilaudid which is the branded name for hydromorphone. This is a very powerful semi-synthetic opiate and narcotic. It is considered about 8 times stronger than morphine and is a Schedule II drug with the FDA. Answered by Mathilda Elliston 1 year ago.

they sometimes use valuim for the pain, they canm also use dilatid, and alot of times if the pain is very severe they use morphene. But usually they only give you the IV drugs for a day or two if they do it at all, because it can be very dangerous and can be very addictive so usually they will give it to you in pill form and thats normally percocet. Answered by Nila Rosek 1 year ago.

dilaudid = hydromorphone No "um" but that's all I got. Valium is for anxiety, not pain but it certainly could be used. Answered by Kerrie Brund 1 year ago.

Toprol Xl Interactions Answered by Deena Nipple 1 year ago.

I looked at the list of meds that you shouldn't take with Toprol. My daughter is on Toprol and she was recently given ibuprofen for an injury per the advise of her doctor. She took it for several days without complications. Why aren't you supposed to take it? Just wondering for future use. Answered by Flor Dubler 1 year ago.

And I take Norvasc with Toprol XL per doc? Answered by Cleora Martillo 1 year ago.

I wouldn't mess with anything till you know how you will react to the medication. Although if you are thinking of maybe a glass of wine once in a while you should be fine, but I would ask my doctor to make sure. Answered by Ilene Lessenberry 1 year ago.

Benadryl may raise your blood pressure. I would check with your Dr. first. Answered by Syreeta Micheletti 1 year ago.

OK, I'm 16 and a sophomore in HS, I have always had ADHD and never rember things and I also have pretty bad anxiety, and any pressure to do anything causes me to almost mentally break down. I took adderall in 5th grade but it made me angry and posse weight and never talk, but I have hard classes this year and I'm failing and I'm trying hard but I can't rember things or study. What are the best ADHD drugs to take that won't cause more anxiety/anger issues or make me loose weight? Answered by Alysha Wotton 1 year ago.

In general the most effective drugs to treat an inability to focus are dopamine agonists.. which are stimulants -- usually amphetamines or amphetamine variations -- ie: Adderall, Concerta, Dexedrine, Ritalin, Vyvanse.. etc. The problem is these drugs do have a high side effect profile -- causing increased heart rate, blood pressure, increased anxiety, social issues, paranoia, insomnia, etc. The stimulant with the lowest side effect profile is , imo, Ritalin. It isn't nearly as potent as the more popular Adderall, Vyvanse, etc. This is an option. However there are non stimulant medications to try for people like yourself. Some examples: Strattera and Intuniv (ask your doctor about these). Some other non stimulants used off-label for add/adhd are: Elavil, Norpramin, Pamelor, Tofranil, Catapres, Duraclon, Kepvay, Nexiclon, Tenex and even Wellbutrin. Out of ALL of these drugs I would ask your doctor about: Ritalin, Strattera, and Intuniv for your specific sensitivity to amphetamines/stimulants. Good luck, Answered by Ethan Kupersmith 1 year ago.
