Anesthetic Overview

An anesthetic (American English) or anaesthetic (British English; see spelling differences) is a drug used to induce anesthesia\u2009\u2060\u2014\u2009\u2060in other words, to result in a temporary loss of sensation or awareness. They may be divided into two broad classes: general anesthetics, which result in a reversible loss of consciousness, and local anesthetics, which cause a reversible loss of sensation for a limited region of the body without necessarily affecting consciousness. A wide...

Butesin Picrate - compounding

Hello. I'm from Australia and had been sorry to learn that Butesin Picrate cream was removed from commercial sale. My daughter (a registered pharmacist with Pharmaceutical Compounding exp.) recently suffered burns while she was home cooking: I said my "often quoted regret" about the cream's discontinuation. We have - between us - located the original (1%) pharmaceutical compounding instructions for it and provided it's not large scale manufacture I can arrange to put you in touch with the compounding pharmacy - only in limited supply for individuals though (like many of us who grew up with this cream in our mothers' first aid boxes!). One ingredient (apparently) had cancer-causing discussions at scientific circles... and that's part of the PR disaster that pr...

White pill with the letter k in a circle on one side and line on other?

The letter k looks similar to @ but with a k. ## I really want to know the answer to this question too! The other side of mine say '75' ## Did u find out what the pill was? ## Mine have a 'swirl k' on one side and a line on the other side. I found 6 in my daughter's room and have no idea what they are. ## Hi did you ever find out what these pills were? I found myself in a similar situation to you and am desperate to know what it is. Thanks. ## Did you find out what this was? I can't find anything on it and need to know asap. ## I think it’s MDMA, otherwise known as ecstasy. A homemade pressed drug that is common in the UK. ## The correct name for this type of drug Description is; methylenedioxymethamphetamine ## How do we know if it's MDMA for sure? If ...

Tribedoce DX Injection

Besides the DX, the box I have says “lidocaina” which I am assuming is Lidocaine, a pain relief drug. My wife wants to use this for hip pain from hip displacia but I just want to make sure that there will be no harmful side effect. Seeing that this also had a corticosteroid in it, Dexamethasone, I am inclined to NOT administer it to her because that is a class of drugs that can have serious side effects if used incorrectly or by the wrong person. ## All medications carry the risk of causing side effects, so yes, there may be dangers, and it should only be administered with a doctors approval. The FDA warns that it may cause administration site reactions, redness, pain, headache, nausea, weight changes, mood changes, and skin reactions. How is she doing? Did you try it? Is sh...

How come I can't find Viractin cold Sore treatment in any drug store?

Viractin Cold Sore Treatment was the BEST. I have suffered with coldsores for years. This was the best treatment I have come acrossed. A small amount of this product and no more coldsore. I haven't found an answer to my question yet. Is Viractin still available over counter or do I need a prescription for it? ## I am sorry, but Viractin has been discontinued by the manufacturer. It contained the active ingredient Tetracaine, which was a topical anesthetic, so it really did nothing to shorten the duration of a cold sore, though the moisturizing effects of it could help keep them from drying out and cracking and bleeding. You may want to try a different over the counter product, such as Abreva, which contains Docosanol, it is an antiviral, which can shorten the duration of a cold sore...

It was recommended by the members of a separate thread that one be started that directly relates to ketamine and it's use to treat depression. If anyone besides myself would like to discuss it's use as a treatment for depression, feel free to post your questions, answers and experiences here.

Viractin cold sore gel

Why is Viractin so hard to find? Is it being discontinued and if so, why? I've used it for years in conjunction with Abreva for cold sores and I love it but it keeps getting harder to buy and I don't understand why when it's such a great product! ## Viractin contains the active ingredient Tetracaine, which is a local anesthetic used to numb the area, topically. I'm not finding any specific information, but it appears that the company that makes it might have discontinued it. It's made by Medibrands and they no longer list any information about it on their site and most online sites that listed it for sale say it is currently out of stock. I don't know which one might be available in your area, but many products use a similar ingredient called Benzocaine, so you m...
