zolpidem, 600 mg carisoprodol, 1 mg of clonazopam, all washed down with two shots of whiskey mixed with some frosty Squirt. Besides the painfully obvious, what is wrong with me? The only time I don’t feel mental and physical pain in when I am asleep, and even then it usually comes to me in my dreams.
Keep those answer flowing…I’ll take all the help I can get!
Thats just way too many drugs. Go see a doctor. If the Klonopin and a shot of whisky alone don’t calm you down – you have issues… The rest of the crap is probably making you feel worse, not better.

yeah im gonna do it
but thanks for your help
immmmm fine so far
no worries iv done more dangerous things
ill let you know if i die though
Taking 1000MG of ibuprofen is dangerous, lie on your back and rest I’m sure it’ll kick in soon enough if it hasn’t started already. NEVER mix drugs, and always talk with a pharmacist or doctor, i know Yahoo Answers can be very helpful, but we’re talking about something that can cause death due to drug overdose, don’t trust YA! for that.

I am taking tramadol for fibromyalgia. (regular not extended release) I need to cut down from 100mg to 50mg but only have 100mg tablets. I want to break them in two but keep hearing people say to not do it because of dosage problems. Even the pharmacy is unsure. Any medical or pharmacists’ help will be very much appreciated. Bill my doctor said I could lower my dose myself to the smallest amount needed but not to take more than 300mg a day without calling him first, but I believe 50mg to 100mg a day would work quite well. The only other medication I take is 350mg carisoprodol once a day. Thanks again!
You’d need to double-check with another pharmacist if you can, but I think it would probably be okay if they really are regular. That said, I thought that the only 100mg tramadol tablets were the controlled release ones.
The reason that you can’t break controlled release tablets is that they are specially coated so that they DO release at a controlled rate. Breaking that coating can cause release of all the drug at once, and therefore can be quite dangerous.
Regular tablets are ‘instant’ release anyway, so you don’t have that risk associated. One clue – have a look at the tablets and see if they are scored down the centre. If they are, then they are manufactured so that they can be split. If they’re not, my guess would be that they need to be swallowed whole and that you shouldn’t split them.
I hope that that helps.

I’ve tried ice packs to no avail and then switched to a heating pad which seems to help a bit more. It feels like my leg muscles are going to rip apart. I work out on a regular basis at the gym and never had this happen before. Have a feeling it was a new Pilates exercise that I tried, called the “Swim”. Can anyone recommend something to use that would help relieve the pain factor?
DO NOT USE HEAT!!! heat feel better because it motivates blood to rush in and out of the injured muscle… when the heat is removed it is no longer leaving the injured area and it causes pooling. after a while the liquid part of the blood leaves and youre left with the plasma, the solid part of blood. in really sever cases it can calcify and you will have bone in your muscle. use ice 20 minutes on 40 minutes off 3 times MINIMUM or it is not any help at all. after the 1st few days if there is no change see a doctor

Ok so i started track and Field on monday and we did hardcore running and and exercises. Now its tuesday and my legs are KILLING me. I can feel that its my muscles but it hurts really hard and if i walk fast or do anything it really hurts! I have track again tomorrow and im expected to go but i don’t know if i can do it! would i get hurt even more? Is there a way to get rid of muscle pains by tmrw morning?
Not to my knowledge, I play football and Lax and I have experienced this basically on the start of every season. If you go to practice tomorrow, it will hurt in the beginning during warm ups and stretching but once you start running you will forget about it. but after the practice, when you stop pumping and moving your legs will be killing again due to acid building up on the muscles from a lack of oxygen. This will go on for about 3-4 days im guessing getting a bit better after each day.
Now here is what you can do or atleast what helps for me.
1)Drink as much water as you can, this helps with something and speeds up the removal of the acid
2)You can also take a very warm bath, this will suthe your muscels and relax them
3)get a good night sleep
4)drink some Gatorade during practice
5) Pop an advil a half an hour before practice this will take off the achyness and the pain
6) Stretch every moment of the day you can, especially when you wake up, If you can do some dynamic stretching
***I am no doctor, this is simply what I do and I find it to help alot!***

I’ve recently been experiencing some aches and pains in both of my calves while walking and bending which I believe is stemming from the gastrocnemius muscles.
I work in medicine myself and know that the crouching position I often take, which puts strain on my calves, isn’t good but I need to be able to bend down!
Stetching my leg completely straight sends a “dead leg” feeling or small spasm down my calves, especially the right one which is considerably more painful.
Should I see a doctor/what treatment would you recommend? Please advise.
I have gone to see an MD for similar stuff and they usually just prescribe pills (muscle relaxants or steroids) or some good ones might send you to a physical therapist…
On the other hand, if you go see good chiropractor, your problem may be gone as little as one visit.
Either way, it seems like part of the healing process might involve giving yourself a rest from what is causing it.
Muscle cramps are also caused by dehydration. Eating bananas and drinking lots of water might help with this. Supplements like Chromium picolinate, MSM, and hylaluronic acid may also be helpful.

mmkay wel i have soccer training all this week( July 30-Aug 5) and my legs have many many pulled muscles in the legs (quad,hamstring, calves, etc.) So what i need to know is if there is any quick treatment i can do to get rid of this pain?
answer quckly…that would be nice
Well first you need to know if your legs are just sore from overexersion or if you really have a pulled muscle. A pulled muscle is very painful and sometimes requires medical attention. You would need to not put too much strain on it.
On the other hand, sore muscles are caused by a build up of lactic acid from heavy exercise. If you are just sore, be sure the next day you do some kind of physical activity to reduce the lactic acid or you will be hella sore day 2.
Some things to try: heating pad or ice pack. I hate being cold so I prefer the heating pad. A rub like Icy hot or bengay messaged in works well. Drink lots of water. Pain relievers are helpful. And finally remember- No pain, no gain.
