This list shows what will be on the labeling or warnings, not what is already on them. 'The detailed view includes drug products with safety labeling changes to the CONTRAINDICATIONS, BOXED WARNING, WARNINGS, PRECAUTIONS, or ADVERSE REACTIONS sections.' So an early check could be good. It also has an input link if you have a problem with a drug not already listed.

Thanks for the enouragement. My life would be secluded and just no fun if it weren't for friends. I prepared the turkey and Rose roasted it and served it to us.

I think my brain is messed up by the morphine and/or needing to change my daily routines so much living out of this chair.

Can't they give you something better than morphine, Pete? My husband had Oxycodone after his shoulder surgery, and it worked really well. No addiction, no bad side effects, managed the pain. I got morphine in the hospital, and all it did was make me dopey--it didn't even kill the pain! Demerol was my drug of choice then.

Yeah, Oxycontin (that's what it sounded like to me) was what they gave me in the night after surgery. No euphoria, no hallucinations, but no discomfort, at all. Upon release the surgeon prescribed a powerful anti-inflammaory, <when I see the name on the empty bottle, I'll post it here> which worked very well. Since then I've had to take nothing for pain. I did feel a little pressure inside the cast so I've taken ibuprofen very successfully.

Well, I'm certainly glad you're getting more mobile & generally improving, Pete.

I should know more about the medications i take, I suppose. Useful information.

You sound well on top of it.

No, oxycodone is different from oxycontin.

My beautiful ex-wife has a good called Compendium of Pharmacueticals (don't know the publisher or edition) that has all the drugs listed. I've looked for it at the library but found none. I'm told Oxycontin is a narcotic. It worked very well.

Thanks Linda. I've tried my best to stay off the injured leg, but the rest of my body feels like it's taking a beating. Getting in and out of the chair is wearing my hands out! Luckily, I'm snowed in. I'll dig a one hundred foot long path about six feet wide so I can get to the road should an adventerous friend be willing to run me to a market for fresh fruit and veggies.
