Opioids are synthetic narcotics that resemble natural opiates like morphine and codeine.
Opioids provide pain relief by binding to or affecting the body's opiate receptors. Some examples of well-known opioids include: hydrocodone, oxycodone, fentynal and methadone.
opioids are a type of drug than when ingested into the body it attattches onto the opiaie receptors found throughout your body. By binding with theses receptors it distorts the way your body generally concieves pain. examples of opioids are: oxycodone, morphine, demerol vicodin, percocet, codeine, and the most notorious illegal one Heroin. They are many other opioids this is just to name a few. And with proper use and minimal abuse opioids hands down provide the best pain relief you can get.
This is a list of opiate-based drugs. ODI's exclusive, patented General Anesthesia Assisted Opiate Detoxification (GAAOD) procedure can be used to successfully treat addictions to these drugs.
LOve this question, and your answer, Karen.
Do you know if there is a long-acting CODEINE tablet or caplet available?
For me, Morphine (MS CONTIN) was about as helpful as a glass of water. Hydrocodone, as in Oxy, gives me very bad synptoms (believe it or not, I am talking severe colitis, for which I was hospitalized for ten days, once), and I saw a COdeine-Contin, but have had no luck finding it available for sale in the US.
So, do you know if it IS sold, anywhere, in the US? If so, where?
I spent a LOT of time researching this and, as of hours and hours later, no-go. Calling the (rude) pharmacist was a fete I would rather not repeat. You would think they would WANT to be hulpful, in order to keep customers, but it was a (larger) chain store, so I guess I get what I pay for.
Btw: I hope you are well-- or as well as can be hoped. It HAS been a while, and things are looking up, and down, dependant on what we're discussing.. At least jaw-surgeries are DONE, for now (knock wood!!).
Again; thank you, Good to see more posting from you!
