Spinal antinociceptive synergism between morphine and clonidine persists in mice made acutely or chronically tolerant to morphine. (1/3414)

Morphine (Mor) tolerance has been attributed to a reduction of opioid-adrenergic antinociceptive synergy at the spinal level. The present experiments tested the interaction of intrathecally (i.t.) administered Mor-clonidine (Clon) combinations in mice made acutely or chronically tolerant to Mor. ICR mice were pretreated with Mor either acutely (40 nmol i.t., 8 h; 100 mg/kg s.c., 4 h) or chronically (3 mg/kg s.c. every 6 h days 1 and 2; 5 mg/kg s.c. every 6 h days 3 and 4). Antinociception was detected via the hot water (52.5 degrees C) tail-flick test. After the tail-flick latencies returned to baseline levels, dose-response curves were generated to Mor, Clon, and Mor-Clon combinations in tolerant and control mice. Development of tolerance was confirmed by significant rightward shifts of the Mor dose-response curves in tolerant mice compared with controls. Isobolographic analysis was conducted; the experimental combined ED50 values were compared statistically against their respective theoretical additive ED50 values. In all Mor-pretreated groups, the combination of Mor and Clon resulted in significant leftward shifts in the dose-response curves compared with those of each agonist administered separately. In all tolerant and control groups, the combination of Mor and Clon produced an ED50 value significantly less than the corresponding theoretical additive ED50 value. Mor and Clon synergized in Mor-tolerant as well as in control mice. Spinally administered adrenergic/opioid synergistic combinations may be effective therapeutic strategies to manage pain in patients apparently tolerant to the analgesic effects of Mor.  (+info)

Characterization of the analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of ketorolac and its enantiomers in the rat. (2/3414)

The marked analgesic efficacy of ketorolac in humans, relative to other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), has lead to speculation as to whether additional non-NSAID mechanism(s) contribute to its analgesic actions. To evaluate this possibility, we characterized (R,S)-ketorolac's pharmacological properties in vivo and in vitro using the nonselective cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors [indomethacin (INDO) and diclofenac sodium (DS)] as well as the selective COX-2 inhibitor, celecoxib, as references. The potency of racemic (R,S)-ketorolac was similar in tests of acetic acid-induced writhing, carrageenan-induced paw hyperalgesia, and carrageenan-induced edema formation in rats; ID50 values = 0.24, 0. 29, and 0.08 mg/kg, respectively. (R,S)-ketorolac's actions were stereospecific, with (S)-ketorolac possessing the biological activity of the racemate in the above tests. The analgesic potencies for (R,S)-, (S)-, and (R)-ketorolac, INDO, and DS were highly correlated with their anti-inflammatory potencies, suggesting a common mechanism. (R,S)-ketorolac was significantly more potent than INDO or DS in vivo. Neither difference in relative potency of COX inhibition for (R,S)-ketorolac over INDO and DS nor activity of (S)-ketorolac at a number of other enzymes, channels, or receptors could account for the differences in observed potency. The distribution coefficient for (R,S)-ketorolac was approximately 30-fold less than for DS or INDO, indicating that (R,S)-ketorolac is much less lipophilic than these NSAIDs. Therefore, the physicochemical and pharmacokinetics properties of (R,S)-ketorolac may optimize the concentrations of (S)-ketorolac at its biological target(s), resulting in greater efficacy and potency in vivo.  (+info)

Cannabinoid suppression of noxious heat-evoked activity in wide dynamic range neurons in the lumbar dorsal horn of the rat. (3/3414)

The effects of cannabinoid agonists on noxious heat-evoked firing of 62 spinal wide dynamic range (WDR) neurons were examined in urethan-anesthetized rats (1 cell/animal). Noxious thermal stimulation was applied with a Peltier device to the receptive fields in the ipsilateral hindpaw of isolated WDR neurons. To assess the site of action, cannabinoids were administered systemically in intact and spinally transected rats and intraventricularly. Both the aminoalkylindole cannabinoid WIN55,212-2 (125 microg/kg iv) and the bicyclic cannabinoid CP55,940 (125 microg/kg iv) suppressed noxious heat-evoked activity. Responses evoked by mild pressure in nonnociceptive neurons were not altered by CP55,940 (125 microg/kg iv), consistent with previous observations with another cannabinoid agonist, WIN55,212-2. The cannabinoid induced-suppression of noxious heat-evoked activity was blocked by pretreatment with SR141716A (1 mg/kg iv), a competitive antagonist for central cannabinoid CB1 receptors. By contrast, intravenous administration of either vehicle or the receptor-inactive enantiomer WIN55,212-3 (125 microg/kg) failed to alter noxious heat-evoked activity. The suppression of noxious heat-evoked activity induced by WIN55,212-2 in the lumbar dorsal horn of intact animals was markedly attenuated in spinal rats. Moreover, intraventricular administration of WIN55,212-2 suppressed noxious heat-evoked activity in spinal WDR neurons. By contrast, both vehicle and enantiomer were inactive. These findings suggest that cannabinoids selectively modulate the activity of nociceptive neurons in the spinal dorsal horn by actions at CB1 receptors. This modulation represents a suppression of pain neurotransmission because the inhibitory effects are selective for pain-sensitive neurons and are observed with different modalities of noxious stimulation. The data also provide converging lines of evidence for a role for descending antinociceptive mechanisms in cannabinoid modulation of spinal nociceptive processing.  (+info)

Pharmacological studies on root bark of mulberry tree (Morus alba L.) (4/3414)

Pharmacological studies were done on the root bark of mulberry tree and pharmacological effects were compared with the clinical effects of "Sohakuhi" in Chinese medicine. n-Butanol- and water-soluble fractions of mulberry root had similar effects except for those on the cadiovascular system. Both fractions showed cathartic, analgesic, diuretic, antitussive, antiedema, sedative, anticonvulsant, and hypotensive actions in mice, rats, guinea pigs and dogs. There appears to be a correlation between the experimental pharmacological results and the clinical applications of mulberry root found in the literature on Chinese medicine.  (+info)

Incidence of analgesic nephropathy in Berlin since 1983. (5/3414)

BACKGROUND: Phenacetin was removed from the German market in 1986 and was replaced mainly in analgesic compounds by acetaminophen. Our objective was to examine the effect of this measure on the incidence of analgesic nephropathy in light of the changes in other end-stage renal diseases. METHODS: We therefore compared the proportion of renal diseases in all patients starting dialysis treatment during three 18-month periods: 4/1982-9/1983 (n=57); 1/1991-6/1992 (n=81); and 10/1995-3/1997 (n=76). RESULTS: On the one hand, the proportion of end-stage analgesic nephropathy decreased significantly from 30% in 1981-1982 to 21% in 1991-1992 and 12% in 1995-1997 (P=0.01). On the other hand, type II diabetes increased significantly from 7% to 22% (P=0.01) and 29%, (P=0.001). Using the chi2 distribution test to analyze the frequencies of seven diseases at three different time intervals, however, showed that the changes in renal-disease proportions between 1982-1983, 1991-1992 and 1995-1997 were not significantly independent. There was a significant median age increase from 52 years (CI0.95 44-58) in 1982-1983 to 63 (CI0.95 55-67) in 1991-1992 and 63 (CI0.95 60-66) in 1995-1997 (P=0.003) for all patients starting dialysis but not for those with analgesic nephropathy [59 (55-71) vs 64 (53-67) and 61 (50-72); n.s.]. CONCLUSION: The decrease of end-stage analgesic nephropathy since 1983 may be partially due to the removal of phenacetin from the German market in 1986. However, considering the general increase in numbers of dialysis patients, their higher age and the increased incidence of type II diabetes, the decrease in analgesic nephropathy is not a statistically significant independent variable. Altered admittance policies for dialysis treatment have yielded a new pattern of renal-disease proportion which interferes with changes in the incidence of analgesic nephropathy.  (+info)

Prevalence and treatment of pain in older adults in nursing homes and other long-term care institutions: a systematic review. (6/3414)

BACKGROUND: The high prevalence of pain in older adults and its impact in this age group make it a public health issue, yet few studies of pain relief focus on older adults. Residents of long-term care facilities have more cognitive impairment than their community-living counterparts and may have difficulty reporting the presence and severity of pain. This systematic literature review was conducted to determine the prevalence of pain, and the type and effectiveness of interventions that have been used to treat pain in residents of nursing homes. METHODS: Studies were identified by searching MEDLINE (from January 1966 to May 1997), HEALTH (from January 1975 to May 1997), CINAHL (from January 1982 to April 1997), AGELINE (from January 1978 to April 1997) and the Cochrane Library (1997, issue 1) and by performing a manual search of textbooks and reference lists. Studies of any methodological design were included if they estimated the prevalence of pain in nursing homes or other long-term care institutions or evaluated interventions for the treatment of pain in residents. Of the 14 eligible studies, 12 were noncomparative studies, 1 was a comparison study with nonrandomized contemporaneous controls, and 1 was a randomized controlled trial. Information on several factors was extracted from each study, including study design, number of patients and facilities, main outcomes measured, methods used to identify and detect pain, prevalence and types of pain, and interventions used to treat pain. The strength of the evidence provided by each study was also assessed. RESULTS: In the 6 studies with data from self-reporting or chart reviews, the prevalence of pain ranged from 49% to 83%. In the 5 studies with data on analgesic use only, the prevalence of pain ranged from 27% to 44%. Only 3 studies, with just 30 patients in total, evaluated an intervention for the treatment of pain. INTERPRETATION: Despite the high prevalence of pain in residents of nursing homes, there is a lack of studies evaluating interventions to relieve their pain. The authors make recommendations for future studies in this area.  (+info)

Evaluation of lidocaine as an analgesic when added to hypertonic saline for sclerotherapy. (7/3414)

PURPOSE: The efficacy of sclerosing agents for the treatment of telangiectasias and reticular veins is well established. The injection of these agents is often associated with pain, and it is not uncommon for sclerotherapists to include lidocaine with the sclerosants in an attempt to reduce the pain associated with treatment. However, there are concerns that this may reduce the overall efficacy of the treatment because of dilution of the sclerosant. Patient comfort and overall outcome associated with treatment using HS with lidocaine (LIDO) versus that using HS alone was compared. METHODS: Forty-two patients were prospectively entered into the study and randomized blindly to sclerotherapy with 23.4% HS or 19% LIDO. Study subjects and treating physicians were blinded to the injection solution used. Injection sites were chosen for veins ranging in size from 0.1 to 3 mm. Photographs of the area to be treated were taken, and the patients rated their pain. They were then observed at regular intervals for four months, and clinical data was collected. Thirty-five subjects completed the full follow-up period, and photographs of the injected area were taken again. Three investigators blinded to the treatment assignment then evaluated the photographs and scored the treatment efficacy according to a standardized system. RESULTS: In the HS group, 61.9% (13 of 21) patients rated their pain as none or mild, whereas 90.5% (19 of 21) of patients in the LIDO group had no or mild discomfort. This difference is significant, with a P value of.034. There was no difference in the overall efficacy of treatment between the two groups. The groups had similar rates of vein thrombosis and skin necrosis. CONCLUSION: Although lidocaine is often used with sclerosing agents, there are no previous reports in the literature to evaluate its effectiveness in reducing the pain experienced by the patient. In this study, patients receiving LIDO experienced significantly less discomfort at the time of injection than patients who received HS alone. There were no differences in the effectiveness of treatment or in the incidence of complications between the two groups.  (+info)

Ketamine-induced peripheral analgesia in rats. (8/3414)

AIM: To examine whether ketamine may directly act at peripheral nociceptors to produce analgesia. METHODS: Wistar rats were anesthetized with urethane. As a nociceptive flexion reflex (FR), C responses from the posterior biceps semitendinosus (PBST) muscle was evoked by electrical stimulation (2 ms, 80 V, 2-3 pulses, 0.5 Hz) via a pair of stainless steel needles inserted subcutaneously applied to the two toes of ipsilateral hindpw. RESULTS: Subcutaneous injection of ketamine (36 mmol.L-1, 5 microL) into the ipsilateral hindpaw produced an inhibition of C responses. At 9 min after application of ketamine, injection of naloxone (1%, 5 microL) into the same area annulled ketamine-induced inhibition. CONCLUSION: Ketamine as a dissociate anesthetic acts on peripheral nociceptors to produce analgesia, which is related to activity of peripheral opioid receptors.  (+info)

BioAssay record AID 130353 submitted by ChEMBL: In vivo antinociceptive activity was determined using mouse acetylcholine induced abdominal constriction test following subcutaneous administration; range (0.23-0.70).
Choice of a narcotic painkiller should be determined by a number of factors, the main ones are etiology, intensity and type of pain. It is also should be taken into account the patients age and individual characteristics.. Effectiveness of anesthesia depends not only by the analgesic itself, but also by route of its administration. Narcotic painkillers should be administered by the most effective, convenient and least painful way.. Parenteral administration of narcotic painkillers can be an effective way to achieve the required level of analgesia in patients who cannot get the desired effect by oral or transdermal route of analgesic administration.. Subcutaneous and intramuscular are the main parenteral routes of administration of narcotic painkillers. In those cases when it is necessary to quickly stop pain syndrome, intravenous route of analgesic administration is used.. Spinal administration of narcotic painkillers (epidural and intrathecal) is used in some patients in the presence of ...
FRIDAY, Feb. 20, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- High doses of powerful narcotic painkillers appear to be linked to a higher risk of depression in patients, new research finds.. The study focuses on a class of prescription narcotic painkillers called opioids, which include drugs such as Oxycontin and Vicodin. While most people use the medicines to ease pain, widespread abuse of narcotic painkillers is also a growing concern.. The new study involved 355 patients in Texas who reported low back pain at an initial medical visit and still had the pain one and two years later.. Although the study couldnt prove cause-and-effect, people who used higher doses of narcotic painkillers to manage their pain were more likely to have an increase in depression, the researchers found.. Learning more about the link between these painkillers and depression, along with what dosage might put patients at higher risk, may inform prescribing and pain management by doctors, wrote a team led by Jeffrey Scherrer, an associate ...
DMSO produces analgesia in rats on tests that typically only detect the analgesic effects of potent narcotic analgesic drugs (i.e. the hot-plate and tail-flick tests). There seem to be two components of this analgesic effect; one component related to a local effect and the other component related to a systemic effect. If only the feet are exposed to DMSO, the rat becomes analgesic on the hot-plate and tail-flick. If a greater surface body is exposed, the rat becomes analgesic on both the hot plate and tail flick indicating a central action, because the tail did not come into contact with the DMSO. In one study on patients the authors conclude that the analgesic effect of DMSO arises from a central, not local, analgesic effect. The analgesic effects of DMSO are not consistently blocked by naloxone indicating that these analgesic effects of DMSO are not consistently blocked by naloxone indicating that these analgesic effects of DMSO do not have the same mechanism of action as morphine.*Methyl sulfoxide
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioid painkillers double the risk of birth defects in pregnant women - an alarming fact considering that more and more women, ages 15 to 44, are being prescribed narcotic painkillers in the United States.. In a recent study, the CDC found that roughly 39 percent of pregnant women enrolled in Medicaid and 28 percent of those enrolled in private insurance were prescribed opioids despite the well-known risks to the developing fetus.. Opioid painkillers, such as codeine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone, are prescribed to treat moderate to acute pain. However, due to their highly addictive properties, the development of a physical dependence on opioids is a common issue, and well known to healthcare providers. Overuse of prescription painkillers has become a serious, life-threatening problem throughout the United States. The number of addictions, deaths, and even motor vehicle and other accidents associated with the use of the ...

Experts say that occasional intake of Painkillers does not cause harm but regular practice may lead to serious health conditions. Surveys have proved the
Is someone really an addict if they have been prescribed medication for pain and can no longer function without the substance? They are certainly dependent on the painkiller but they are not necessarily an addict. They may well need clinical help coming off the substance due to the physical withdrawals they may experience. If they have maintained using the painkiller as prescribed and have not varied from the prescribed regime I would suggest they are not an addict in the sense of addiction diagnosed as a disease. The addiction as a disease model states that an addict will have lost the ability to control the use of the substance. That once they take the first one they will be compelled to consume more alongside being obsessed to use more. They will continue to use the drug despite negative consequences.. So it appears there are two issues running side by side here. Those that are using prescribed painkillers addictively and those that are using painkillers as prescribed but are struggling to ...
What You Need to Know Before You Take Any Painkillers. Do you use any form of painkillers regularly? If you answered yes, there are a few critical things you should know. Since painkillers are easily accessible, many people have made them their best friend. It is common for many people to take painkillers every time they develop back pain and or muscle pull. Although there are times when painkillers help, if not used well they can lead to health problems. If you are a user of painkillers, you need to read the information below before you open that packet.. Opioid painkillers. Many people have a tendency of using this category of painkillers for wrong reasons. Opioids are painkillers such as Morphine, Oxycodone, Vicodin and Tramadol. Opioids are mostly used to cure back pain. They are also used for relieving chronic pain. Although they are effective in what they are supposed to do, they pose great danger to your health. If you use Opioids for a long time, you will end up becoming an addict. These ... Why compound pain creams are great alternative and should be implemented ASAP.. Amid growing concerns about a nationwide epidemic of painkiller addiction and abuse, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has come out with new federal guidelines on the use of powerful drugs like OxyContin and Vicodin. The guidelines are designed for doctors and aim to reduce the overprescribing of opioid drugs.. Prescription painkillers should not be a first-choice for treating common ailments like back pain and arthritis, according to the new guidelines, which are voluntary for doctors to follow. Instead, patients should be encouraged to try physical therapy, exercise and over-the-counter pain medications before turning to opioid painkillers for chronic pain. Opioid drugs include medications like morphine and oxycodone as well as illegal narcotics like heroin ...

Worried that your painkiller could trigger a heart attack or dangerous stomach bleeding? New reports on painkiller risks, based on reviews of dozens of studies including hundreds of thousands of patients, indicate most patients should try naproxen, an older anti-inflammatory drug. Experts say it doesnt raise heart attack or stroke risk - a major worry for older people - and naproxen is inexpensive because generic versions have been around for years. Available over the counter, its taken by millions of Americans. The drawback is that like most painkillers, it can irritate the stomach, so doctors say some people may also need to take one of the newer acid reflux drugs. I do think we should start with naproxen in the vast majority of cases, said Dr. Steven Nissen, head of cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic and president of the American College of Cardiology. Its about balancing the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal risk. The new reports were published Tuesday ahead of schedule on the ...

The tail flick test is a test of the pain response in animals, similar to the hot plate test. It is used in basic pain research and to measure the effectiveness of analgesics, by observing the reaction to heat. It was first described by DAmour and Smith in 1941. Most commonly, an intense light beam is focused on the animals tail and a timer starts. When the animal flicks its tail, the timer stops and the recorded time (latency) is a measure of the pain threshold. Alternate methods can be used to apply heat, such as immersion in hot water. Alternately, a dolorimeter with a resistance wire with a constant heat flow may be used. For the tail flick test, the wire is attached to the tail of the organism, and the wire applies heat to the tail. The researcher then records the latency to tail flick. Researchers testing the effectiveness of drugs on the pain threshold often use the tail flick test to measure the extent to which the drug being tested has reduced the amount of pain felt by the model ...

Analgesics (pain killers) are an important component of medicines ability to reduce suffering.. Multiple analgesics are available and vary from Aspirin (the old favourite) to morphine and its synthetic derivatives.. However all analgesics are not equal. Analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs are often confused and sometimes not used appropriately. Prednisone is an excellent anti-inflammatory drug but has no direct analgesic effect. It produces results by reducing inflammation and hence the process causing pain. Other anti-inflammatory drugs have been developed to produce a similar effect.. Side effects that can be present with long term Prednisone use.. Aspirin has an excellent analgesic and an excellent anti-inflammatory action.

WebMD Health News. Opioid painkillers - also known as narcotic painkillers - are powerful drugs that can effectively treat pain when needed. But they are also potential killers: in 2013, they were linked to 16,000+ deaths, more than any other drug or drug class. And nearly 5 million people could be addicted to the drugs, says a new report from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.. The report, called The Prescription Opioid Epidemic: An Evidence-Based Approach, offers a number of solutions to the problem. One is to expand access to an addiction treatment called buprenorphine. Experts will discuss the reports findings at a forum co-hosted by the Clinton Health Matters Initiative and Johns Hopkins at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17.. Andrew Kolodny, MD, chief medical officer for Phoenix House, a national nonprofit addiction treatment agency, was one of the experts who helped draft the report.

An herbal cocktail comprising of seeds, stem and leaves of seven African plants extensively used in South-Western Nigeria for the management and treatment of inflammation and tumor of the breast was investigated for analgesic and anti-inflammation activities. The analgesic properties of the ethanol extract was investigated using three in vivo mice test models (mice constriction, hot-plate and formalin-induced pain test) while anti-inflammatory activities of the same were evaluated using the Carageenan and egg albumin-induced oedema test systems in vivo. Present findings indicated that the cocktail at a concentration of 400-1600 mg kg- produced significant inhibition (p,0.05) response in both phases of the formalin pain model. The acetic acid-induced abdominal constriction also showed a dose dependent pain inhibition pattern directly related to the amount of extract administered.

Dr KK Aggarwal, Vice President CMMAO and Immediate Past National President IMA. Dr Ravi Wankhedkar, National President IMA. A four-month-old baby reportedly died at a hospital in Delhi last week after administration of a painkiller injection in a case of alleged medical negligence. According to the family, the baby had suffered a cut in the upper lip for which a minor surgery was done and they were informed that the doctors were planning to put a stitch to treat the cut to which the family agreed. Because of persistent crying of the baby, a painkiller injection was given by the doctors to provide temporary relief from the pain caused by a stitch in the upper lip.. The doctors took the baby away and administered some pain killer following which he became completely silent.

Abstract: Pain is a distressing feeling caused by damage to different tissues. Consequently the person reacts, and tries to remove the painful stimulus. On the other hand, prostaglandins contribute to the emergence of pain. These compounds are formed and secreted by cyclogenase 2 or COX-2 enzymes. It is through inhibiting these enzymes that most of the analgesic medications act. Thus, this study aims to investigate and review some of the scientific findings on analgesic effects and possible active ingredients and analgesic mechanisms of these herbs. Result: Nowadays one of the methods to control pain is using non-steroid anti-inflammatory medications. Although the analgesic effects of these medications emerge relatively fast, but their side effects are considered to be a limiting factor in their usage. Therefore researchers are constantly in the search of new medications with less side effects. In recent years the tendency to use herbal medications has significantly increased in the treatment ...

We found that 27% of the women and 18% of the men reported a regular monthly use of at least seven analgesic tablets during the last year (continuous regular analgesics use). Besides poor self-rated health we found in both sexes that increasing age, poor self-rated fitness, and smoking were related to a continuous regular analgesics use. Nulliparity, low level of education, overweight/obesity, binge drinking, and abstinence were associated with a continuous regular analgesics use for women, while underweight and marital/cohabiting status were associated with a continuous regular analgesics use only for men. ...
There are several different types of painkillers. They come in both natural and synthesized types and most are available in various strengths. First of all, the pain relief that is given by analgesics works by blocking the pain signals from travelling to the brain or they interfere with the brain […]
Results At baseline 84% of the patients used analgesics. Of all patients, 77% used acetaminophen, 36% used NSAIDs and 16% used weak opioids. At baseline, analgesics were used irregularly and at an suboptimal dose. Analgesic use after six weeks is described in Figure 1. The maximal daily dosage was used in 93% of the patients that used acetaminophen, in 66% of the patients that used NSAIDs, and in 44% of the patients that used weak opioids. Combinations of analgesics were common. No serious adverse events occurred. In 39% of the patients NRS-pain was ≤5 after six weeks. Despite NRS-pain,5, a further step in the analgesic protocol was not accepted by the patient (n=14) or not prescribed by the rheumatologist (n=13), the latter mostly due to contra-indications or side effects. Statistically significant and clinically relevant mean improvements from baseline were 19% (p,0.001) for pain and 12% (p=0.002) for activity limitations after six weeks. ...

TUESDAY, May 9, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Commonly used painkillers such as Motrin, Advil and Aleve might increase your risk for heart attack, even in the first week of use, a new study suggests. Overall, these drugs and others known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) increase the risk of a heart attack by 20 to 50 percent, compared with not using them, researchers found.. For most people, however, this represents only a small increased risk -- about 1 percent a year, the researchers said. Still, from the viewpoint of public health, even small increases in risk of heart attack are important because use of NSAIDs is so widespread, said lead researcher Michele Bally. Shes an epidemiologist at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Center. The increased risk of heart attack associated with NSAIDs was seen at any dose taken for one week, one month or more than one month. And the risk rose with higher doses, the study found.. NSAIDs are widely used to treat pain and inflammation ...
PARACETAMOL is a commonly used medicine that can help treat pain and reduce a high temperature. However, the common over-the-counter painkiller can interact with some other medications - including drugs to prevent stroke and even type 2 diabetes medication.
Not all pain is equal, and neither are painkillers. Pain is one of the most common symptoms and its presence is almost ubiquitous in all diseases and injuries, hence this is an important area for all healthcare professionals to note.

Research published in Europes leading reproductive medicine journal Human Reproduction today (Monday 8 November) shows that women who took a combination of more than one mild analgesic during pregnancy, or who took the painkillers during the second trimester of pregnancy, had an increased risk of giving birth to sons with undescended testicles (cryptorchidism) - a condition that is known to be a risk factor for poor semen quality and testicular germ cell cancer in later life. [1]. The researchers from Denmark, Finland and France found that women who used more than one painkiller simultaneously (e.g. paracetamol and ibuprofen) had a seven-fold increased risk of giving birth to sons with some form of cryptorchidism compared to women who took nothing.. The second trimester appeared to a particularly sensitive time. Any analgesic use at this point in the pregnancy more than doubled the risk of cryptorchidism. Of the individual painkillers, ibuprofen and aspirin approximately quadrupled the risk of ...

The over-prescription of opioids and other painkiller medications is fast becoming a public health threat. Jacob Vigil, one of the lead investigators of the study, said that over-prescription often leads to non-prescription opioid and heroin use, resulting in addiction.. But besides being more prone to abuse than other painkillers, opioids might also affect brain health and cognition in the long run, even if taken in recommended doses. Multiple studies also found that opioids can affect hormone production and lead to poor gut health.. For these reasons and more, scientists are beginning to look into more natural painkillers and herbal remedies for pain relief that can be promoted in place of opioids. Natural painkillers, including herbs and medicinal plants, also do not pose serious health risks.. One such natural painkiller is cannabis (Cannabis sativa), a plant used to create a range of medical and recreational drugs. Past research suggests that cannabis can be used as a painkiller instead of ...
Events - Research Design Considerations for Single-Dose Analgesic Clinical Trials in Acute Pain - - - - - - This webinar will review the recent article in Pain by Cooper et al that summarizes the findings of a meeting convened by IMMPACT, the Initiative on Methods, Measurement, and Pain Assessment in Clinical Trials. The article looked at key considerations and best practices governing design of acute pain studies. A single-dose analgesic study is usually the first step in a clinical development plan to establish the safety and efficacy for an acute pain medication. This first study should be conducted in an established postsurgical model to determine proof of concept, the effective dose range, analgesic properties such as time to onset of analgesic activity, magnitude of analgesic activity, and duration of analgesic effect. The relationship between dose and efficacy/safety also can be defined. Inclusion of a placebo arm allows for determination of the treatment effect and relative safety versus an
Natural News) A recent study published in the British Medical Journal revealed that some of the most commonly prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), otherwise known as painkillers, may significantly increase the odds of heart attack within a week or a month if high doses were taken. To carry out the study, a team of researchers pooled data from various healthcare databases in countries including Canada, Finland and the U.K. with a total cohort population of nearly 447,000 participants. More than 61,000 of these patients suffered a heart attack.. The research team found that more than 90 percent of all the painkillers assessed were tied to increased risk of heart attack. The health experts also found that the overall risk of heart attack was between 20 to 50 percent higher in NSAID users compared with nonusers. The experts also noted that the risk varied greatly between specific drugs. According to the research team, using ibuprofen and naproxen were associated with a 75 ...
Analgesics are widely used in dentistry as pain killers and for their anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds are divided into two primary classifications: simple analgesics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Regardless of the cause, simple analgesics and NSAIDS have an effect on pain. While several common side effects exist (eg, nausea, vomiting, rashes, assorted gastrointestinal disturbances, and occasionally tinnitus), they are generally considered safe for the short-term treatment of tooth, periodontal, and musculoskeletal pain associated with dental procedures.. Analgesics by definition and usage only relieve pain. Their effect begins within minutes of administration and generally lasts for several hours. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are also analgesics when administered in single doses. By comparison, corticosteroids are purely anti-inflammatory and exert no analgesic effect.. Narcotics are often required by patients suffering from an acute onset of dental ...
The prescription drug methadone accounted for two percent of painkiller prescriptions in the United States in 2009, but was involved in more than 30 percent of prescription painkiller overdose deaths, according to a report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Methadone accounts for nearly 1 in 3 prescription painkiller overdose deaths in the U.S., even though only 2% of prescriptions for opioid painkillers are for this drug, according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Late last month, the US Food and Drug Administration made it significantly harder for doctors to prescribe Vicodin, Lortab, and other highly addictive painkillers that have killed tens of thousands of Americans over the past decade. Lawmakers praised the agencys move, but the next day, over the objections of its medical advisory board, the FDA approved Zohydro, a new drug that has 5 to 10 times more of the heroin-like opioid hydrocodone than Vicodin.. If you approve this pill, you surely will be signing a death sentence for thousands of people, especially young kids, Avi Israel, a father whose 20-year-old son committed suicide after becoming addicted to doctor-prescribed hydrocodone, told FDA officials at the December hearing. The FDAs advisory board, an appointed group of medical experts who evaluate drugs used in anesthesiology and surgery, voted against Zohydro 11-2 last December. As several board members noted, most opioid painkillers on the market also include acetaminophen, the main ...
A series of 1-(2-hydroxyethyl)-3,5-dimethylpyrazolylazo derivatives, incorporating thiosemicarbazide 2a-c, 1,3,4-thiadiazole 3a-c, and 1,2,4-triazole-3-thione 4a-c were synthesized. The structure of these novel synthesized compounds 2a-c, 3a-c, and 4a-c was confirmed by spectral analysis. All these compounds were screened for their analgesic activity. Hot-plate and tail-immersion tests were used for the determination of the analgesic activity. Morphine, an analgesic through both spinal and supraspinal pathways, was used as a standard test drug. All compounds were administered at a dose of 100 mg/kg i.p. Among the compounds, 2-(butylamino)-5-[((1-(2-hydroxyethyl)-3,5-dimethylpyrazole-4-yl)azo)phenyl]-1,3,4-thiadiazole 3a and 4-[((1-(2-hydroxyethyl)-3,5dimethylpyrazole-4-yl)azo)phenyl]-4-(2-phenethyl)-2,4-dihydro-3H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thione 4c showed analgesic effects in both tests. Especially 4c exerted strong analgesia starting at 30 min after injection. ...
Taking one or a mix of painkiller medicines daily over a long time may cause chronic kidney problems. This is called analgesic nephropathy. Painkillers that combine 2 or more medicines (such as, aspirin and acetaminophen together) with caffeine or codeine are the most likely to harm the kidneys.

Non-opioid analgesics include pain pills, the analgesic effect of which is not related to the opioid system.. In the USA, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most common pain pills with analgesic activity. In particular, aniline derivatives (Acetaminophen), salicylic acid derivatives (Aspirin), carboxylic acid derivatives (Diclofenac, Ibuprofen, Naproxen).. The analgesic effect of the NSAIDs is due to the inhibition of the prostanoids synthesis. At that, drugs of this class influence the synthesis of prostaglandins in the neurons of the spinal cord and in the structures of the central nervous system that are involved in the transmission of pain impulses.. Non-opioid analgesics can be purchased in the form of oral capsules and tablets. Since the use of non-narcotic analgesic does not significantly affect the central nervous system, these pain pills are available online and in supermarkets.. In addition to the analgesic effect, non-opioid analgesics can exert provide and ...
We attempted to identify the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory actions of the monoterpene p-cymene. Firstly, behavioural screening was carried out to verify the influence of p-cymene [25, 50, and 100 mg/kg intraperitoneal (i.p.)] on the central nervous system (CNS) activity. The antinociceptive activity of p-cymene was evaluated by the acetic acidinduced writhing response, formalin, and hot-plate test, respectively. The leukocyte migration induced by injection of carrageenan was used to assess the anti-inflammatory activity. p-Cymene showed depressant activity on CNS after 4 h of treatment and also a possible action on the autonomous nervous system (ANS), mainly at the dose of 100 mg/kg (i.p.). It was found that p-cymene (50 and 100 mg/kg, i.p.) significantly (p , 0.05) reduced the writhing responses induced by acetic acid. p-Cymene also decreased the licking time in the first and second phase, respectively, of the formalin test. The results of the hot-plate test showed that all doses of ...
Bone pain is a common and severe symptom in cancer patients. The present study employed a mouse model of leukemia bone pain by injection K562 cells into tibia of mouse to evaluate the analgesic effects of lappacontine. Our results showed that the lappaconitine treatment at day 15, 17 and 19 could effectively reduce the spontaneous pain scoring values, restore reduced degree in the inclined-plate test induced by injection of K562 cells, as well as restore paw mechanical withdrawal threshold and paw withdrawal thermal latency induced by injection of K562 cells to the normal levels. Additionally, the molecular mechanisms of lappaconitines analgesic effects may be related to affect the expression levels of endogenous opioid system genes (POMC, PENK and MOR), as well as apoptosis-related genes (Xiap, Smac, Bim, NF-κB and p53). Our present results indicated that lappaconitine may become a new analgesic agent for leukemia bone pain management.

Analgesic Nephropathy A chronic kidney disease that gradually leads to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and the need for permanent dialysis or a kidney transplant to restore renal function. Its likely cause is the habitual use of compound analgesics such as acetaminophen and aspirin. Predominates in women peak incidence at age years. Symptoms usually develop after a cumulative analgesic dose of 2-3 Kg.

Pregabalin was introduced as an antiepileptic drug with analgesic anti-hyperalgesic and anxiolytic properties and was also used to treat neuropathic pain. In recent years it has been used as part of a multimodal management of acute postoperative pain after various types of surgery. We study the effect of pregabalin administered before cardiac surgery on acute and chronic postoperative pain. Post CABG syndrome is well known since 1980 and various analgesic methods have been used from time to time (opioids, regional analgesia, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). In our research patients will be divided into three groups. The control group will receive a placebo capsule before surgery. The second group will receive 75mg of pregabalin per os before surgery while the third will receive 150mg of pregabalin. After the surgery all patients will be connected to an intravenous PCA morphine pump for 48 hours. The postoperative pain will be assessed with the Visual Analogue Scale (0-10) every day. Total ...
Occasionally painkillers may be given by infusion into the space just outside the membranes surrounding the spinal cord. This is known as epidural analgesia. Sometimes the painkiller is given into the fluid around the spinal cord -- this is known as intrathecal analgesia. These specialised techniques are usually used only to control severe pain and are managed by anaesthetists.. If you need to have your painkillers by injection or infusion, your doctor or nurse will discuss this with you.. Please see our leaflet on Strong Painkillers for more information.. ...
When a person feels overly exhausted and constantly hurting all over, they may have fibromyalgia. This is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons of a person, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points. These points are places in a persons body where a slight hint of pressure causes pain. Also called fibrositis, chronic muscle pain syndrome, psychogenic rheumatism and tension myalgias, fibromyalgia is more common to women than men.People dealing with this condition often report that they do not respond to the types of medication that relieve other peoples pain. A new research from Michigan explains that this might be because patients with fibromyalgia were found to have a reduction in the binding ability of a type of receptor in the brain that is the target of opioid painkiller drugs such as morphine. The study includes PET scans (Positron Emission Tomography) of the brains of patients with fibromyalgia, and an equal number of people ...
Opioids are the key popular painkillers of now, though opium but has existed for quite a long time.

For years, medical doctors prescribed tramadol for ache management, assuming it was a painkiller with a low danger for addiction. Tramadol 50mg/ml Solution for Injection is not an appropriate substitute in opioid dependent patients. Nonetheless, the only factor we do find out about tramadol is that NSAIDs present superior analgesia to veterinary patients. Nevertheless, tramadols opioid and serotonergic results are vital as a result of they permit tramadol to deal with each pain and the psychological parts of ache, he said. Different critical unintended effects of snorting tramadol include coma and respiratory problems.. Tramadol is efficient on two fronts: About 20 percent of its painkilling effects come from opioids, and eighty p.c from ingredients that inhibit the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine, two chemicals in the mind associated with mood and responsiveness to ache, said Dr. Lewis Nelson, a professor of emergency drugs at New York Universitys Langone Medical Middle.. Since ...
Scientists are chasing a new lead on a class of drugs that may one day fight both pain and opioid addiction. Its still early days, but researchers report that theyve discovered a new small molecule that binds selectively to a long-targeted enzyme, halting its role in pain and addiction while not interfering with enzymes critical to healthy cell function. The newly discovered compound isnt likely to become a medicine any time soon. But it could jumpstart the search for other binders that could do the job.. Pain and addiction have many biochemical roots, which makes it difficult to treat them without affecting other critical functions in cells. Today, the most potent painkillers are opioids, including heroin, oxycodone, and hydrocodone. In addition to interrupting pain, they inhibit enzymes known as adenylyl cyclases (ACs) that convert cells energy currency, ATP, into a molecule involved in intracellular chemical communication known as cyclic AMP (cAMP). Chronic opioid use can make cells ...
Edinburgh osteopaath and author of two books on lower back pain offers surprising insights into the topic of low back pain and painkillers
This study aimed to further investigate the recently synthesized morphine analog, 14-O-MeM6SU (Lacko et al., 2012) compared with M6SU (Brown et al., 1985; Zuckerman et al., 1999; Crooks et al., 2006; Holtman et al., 2010) in a rat model of inflammatory pain and a mouse model of visceral pain based on our previous work (Al-Khrasani et al., 2007; Khalefa et al., 2013). Our data clearly show that 14-O-MeM6SU and M6SU produced peripheral antinociceptive effects in a CFA-induced inflammatory pain model or acetic acid-evoked visceral pain over a specific dose/concentration range of their systemic (subcutaneous) administration. The antinociceptive action on the former test in certain doses was localized to the inflamed paw.. Thus, beyond the antinociceptive effect elicited by the local administration of 14-O-MeM6SU (Khalefa et al., 2013), peripherally mediated antinociception of this compound and its parent molecule, M6SU, could also be established by its systemic application. It is important to ...
Management of chronic pain is getting more difficult - at least the much touted chemical route seems to be turning into a rather rocky path, with several of the blockkbuster painkillers showing stunning rates of increase of heart trouble after Vioxx was recently withdrawn from the market. According to a recent Health News article, the FDA has just halted a clinical trial involving Naproxen, as signs emerged that the drug seems to be a cause of increasing heart trouble just like its cousins.. Of course this brings us to a painful question: Should we at all routinely manage pain or is it perhaps time to look at underlying mechanisms, to find out what causes the pain and remedy that underlying cause? Certainly pain is an important indicator that something is not right. But would you plaster a piece of paper over the red light in your car that indicates the oil in your motor is getting too hot? Certainly not. So why do we insist on managing pain as a routine strategy in healthcare, without a ...
An expert tasked with helping the Food and Drug Administration weigh potential new opioid drug approvals is openly calling out the agency for what he alleges are its continued missteps in handling the opioid crisis. In an interview with the Guardian Thursday, Raeford Brown claimed that the FDA has failed to learn from its past mistakes by approving the drug Dsuvia last year, the tablet form of an opioid painkiller up to ten times more potent than fentanyl.

In a brand new study performed by the medical researches at a college in Birmingham, individuals who suffered from continual decrease back ache were given opioid painkillers (such as Tramadol) or a placebo on a regular basis for a month. Few unwanted effects have been reported on the low doses at which methotrexate is normally prescribed (sometimes 7.5 to 25 mg every week), but regular laboratory monitoring remains to be vital. In simple reality, its suggested that whenever you do purchase the Tramadol on line products and solutions, you have to to understand the types it arrives on and the way they are going to be utilized efficiently.. Tramadol is a class C drug and is barely obtainable with a prescription from a doctor or other healthcare skilled that is certified to prescribe. It is because tramadol is classed as a controlled drug and is subject to certain restrictions.

Deaths from synthetic opioids, including illicit fentanyl, rose 73 percent to 9,580. And prescription painkillers took the highest toll, but posted the smallest increase. Abuse of drugs like Oxycontin and Vicodin killed 17,536, an increase of 4 percent.. I dont think weve ever seen anything like this. Certainly not in modern times, said Robert Anderson, who oversees death statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.. The new numbers were part of the agencys annual tally of deaths and death rates in 2015.. Overall, overdose deaths rose 11 percent last year, to 52,404. By comparison, the number of people who died in car crashes was 37,757, an increase of 12 percent. Gun deaths, including homicides and suicides, totaled 36,252, up 7 percent.. ...
Abstract : Evidence from recent animal studies indicates that the analgesic effect of low frequency TENS is reduced in opioid tolerant animals. The aim of the present study was to compare the analgesic effect of conventional (high frequency) and acupuncture-like (low frequency) TENS between a group of opioid treated patients and a group of opioid-naive patients in order to determine if this cross-tolerance effect is also present in humans. Twenty-three chronic pain patients (11 who took opioids and 12 who did not) participated in the study. Participants were assigned in a randomized cross-over design to receive alternately conventional and acupuncture-like TENS. There was a significant reduction in pain during and after conventional TENS when compared to baseline for both the opioid and non-opioid group (p,.01). For acupuncture-like TENS however, the analgesic effect of TENS was only observed in the non-opioid group (p,.01), with opioid treated patients showing no change in pain scores during ...

Drug overdose deaths rose for the 11th straight year, federal data show, and most of them were accidents involving addictive painkillers despite growing attention to risks from these medicines. In 2010, there were 38,329 drug overdose deaths nationwide, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Medication, mostly prescription drugs, was involved in nearly 60 percent of overdose deaths that year, overshadowing deaths from illicit narcotics.

Another reason to be careful with painkillers is that they can cause a heart attack or stroke. Despite claims in the past by health professionals in the media that taking an aspirin a day can prevent a heart attack, recent studies show the opposite to be true. Taking aspirin on a regular basis may temporarily relieve chronic pain, but it also increases the risk of heart attack or stroke due to its high salt composition ...
