How do you wise to keep up with the painkillers?

Each week, reply to Sign up for the Vaal (47), a general practitioner in Nijmegen, the netherlands, a common, or outstanding question on a practice. This week: how do you use pain relievers in a sensible manner.

In the Pale: “For the pain to go can be a pain to use. I will discuss the basics of where and how you can benefit from them. This is why I want to emphasize that it is a pain-killer only for the pain to reduce, and this will be the cause of the pain is not the problem.”

“First of all, my advice to you is that the dosage to be used, such as can be found on the box or in the package insert, even if it’s a slight pain is. A lot of people forget to do this and do that then, but for what, so they tend to be less or even more than the recommended amount to use it.”

“Spread out the intake of pain killers is uniformly distributed throughout the day.

“Spread your intake evenly throughout the day. If you do something three times a day to make, is that, up to once every eight hours. This allows you to prevent a monster too early, worked out, touch and pain.”

Step 1: Paracetamol

“All of us have to have a again and you get to decide whether you can keep it. The pain Is too much, and you’ll want the painkillers to take in the beginning then it is always step by step one, paracetamol. Start with the normal dose and see what the effect is.”

“The dose for an adult is two tablets of 500 mg. You are allowed a maximum of four times per 24-hour period with two tablets to take, after a minimum of six hours to two. For the administration of paracetamol to children, take a look first at the packaging of the drug, as the dose for them depending on their weight.”

“Some people, acetaminophen with caffeine in it, because they think that it is a stronger pain reliever. This is not so, the caffeine is in coffee and energy drink, and it is not a pain-killer. It helps to push you just a little bit.”

Step 2: use anti-Inflammatories as an addition to paracetamol,

“This pain is not enough, then add an NSAID to opioid receptors. Examples of these are anti-inflammatory are ibuprofen, diclofenac, and naproxen. These are available over the counter in a lower dosage than is prescribed by the physician. Take nsaids, use in combination with the paracetamol, does not, in the place of it. They are quiet, the pain will be in a different way, and interact with each other in that way.”

“Sometimes you can give the NSAID’s, slight upset stomach. Therefore, it is wise to use them while dining in to take out. This is a pain reliever, you can usually continue to use it, but if you are over sixty years of age, there is an increased risk of stomach bleeding as a side effect. Doctors recommended that everyone over sixty to be a maagbeschermer to use it. If necessary, ask a staff member at the drug store or a doktersassistent to find out more.”

Step 3: in the Morphine-like preparation, in addition to paracetamol and a NSAID

“It Is the combination of paracetamol and NSAID is not satisfactory, please consult with your primary care physician. You may want to be on the top of the paracetamol and the NSAID is a mofine-looking specimen, take it. The least-severe varieties of these include codeine and tramadol.”

“These substances can be addictive, so please be extra careful and consult with your doctor on how to use them. The most famous oxycodone: this has been in the news due to the high number of long-term users.”


And what is the oxycodone, the widely used heavy-duty pain reliever?

The construction is a mirror of the pain relievers, in your blood

“Well, if you have a mofine-like preparation, try it, it is very important to take the paracetamol and the NSAID to be used. Each and every step, it works in a different way, the pain. Due to the painkillers in the right way to use them, they strengthen each other.”

“A pain killer to heal, but it softens just the pain.”
He’s Pale, gps

“Pain control is best with a good amount of pain killers to build up in the blood. In addition, it is, as I said earlier, it is important to use a good dose of 24 hours. Don’t wait until you are hurting, but please, at least in the beginning, the pain is on the clock.”

“As soon as the pain becomes less, because the cause disappears, you can go ahead and cut them. Also, and this goes back to the three steps, but the other way around. You’ll end up, so with the tylenol. And, once again, ask yourself the question, why do you want it to be you. A pain to heal, but it softens just the pain.”
